I have been a black series collector from the 1st wave! Got all but maul. I wasn't going to collect prequel figures but I made a couple acceptions when ROTS Obi dropped but I missed Anakin. Thank the maker we get another shot with archives!
I dont have everything since Hasbro distribution still has problems. I try as hard as I can to find them on shelf but if I miss a few the secondary market prices usually skyrocket and its too late.
Face printing is awesome and I'm looking forward to some Hasbro do-overs like bespin and rotj Lukes. I have both originals but the faces are kinda... Ehhh... So hopefully we get some do-overs, and I think archive is perfect for that since the new yoda looks better.
I still like the old faithful 3.75 line and always looking to finish the crew of my BMF falcon with the latest and best versions, so I'm glad tvc is still going.
Not sure what to think of this retro line. Sort of cutting into the magic of originals and reduces what makes them so awesome. But its a cheap and neat alternative for casual collectors I suppose.
Cant wait to see the black series continue and grow with more characters and detail!!!
