So, at the beginning of 2014, where are we on Star Wars Black 6″?
Before I begin, let me state something: I’m notÂ that worried about the line.Â I think sometimes collectors overthink this kind of thing. Star Wars is a big, recognizable brand with a new movie coming out in less than two years. The hype will be unimaginable eighteen months from now. Captain America 2 and the Amazing Spider-man 2 will probably not be as successful as the new Star Wars movie (the first one, at least), and both of those films just received a great wave of 6″ figures. Hasbro has not abandoned the format for Marvel, and I see no reason why they’d turn around and drop it for Star Wars when we’re not even a year in.
But that doesn’t mean I think they’re handling the line perfectly.
