For me, it’s probably Star Wars The Black Series.

Easily Marvel Legends. They destroyed this year with their stuff and have rose from the ashes of the dark days to something brand new and innovative.

Even though I love Marvel Legends and I'd normaly vote for them and they have been upping their quality, this year there were too many waves and figures made and looking back at least for me not many stand out (the percentage of how many figures they made vs how many I really really loved is a bit low).

So Id have to go with Mafex The Dark Knight Trilogy figures, Ive enjoyed every single one they made, I didnt have any quality issues on any, they are my definitive versions of these characters and even with their high price point, with all the accessories, paint apps, and amazing sculpting I think they are worth every penny

Yea, Marvel Legends definitely up their game in 2018. Numerous waves released, epic BAFs, vast character lineup, quality improvement, etc. Definitely has my vote.

Well I have to agree with everyone and say that Marvel Legends killed with lots of X-Men characters and answered a lot of our prayers. 

But I have to point out that Marvel SHF was very cool this year too. The IW figures are amazing and just Cap that they got wrong.  So it deserves a mention.

Star Wars Black Series.

Marvel Legends is close.  They're still doing what they've been doing for a few years now which is cranking out wave after wave of darn good figures and providing a healthy mix of comic and movie to keep everyone happy (as if that's possible in this hobby).  ML is still great.

The reason I give it to SW Black this year is because they finally incorporated the photo real into their figures and it makes ALL the difference.  Look at their earlier releases, anything wave 2 and up, and it's just mediocre at best.  Compare those to their recent stuff, even in just the past few months:  Hoth and Bespin Leia, Tarkin, Dengar, Bespin Han, skiff Lando, the completion of the bounty hunters, Gamorrean Guard (AKA figure of the year), and that's not even getting into non-OT characters.  It's like a completely different, higher quality line.

Mafex Justice League line 

This line has been so much fun to collect and this has been one that I have personally enjoyed from a movie that I really liked. I am looking forward to their Aquaman in 2019!
