kodiaktau writes: Hasbro is producing a new series of 6" Star Wars figures labeled the "Black Collection". High quality articulation, paint and accessories are the key selling features. Michael Crawford does a review of the Sandtrooper and Darth Maul figures in the attached story. There will be limited releases of these figures to ensure they are kept at a high value. The initial release character was a limited Boba Fett. First series includes Darth Maul, Sandtrooper, R2-D2, Luke Skywalker. Second series includes Boba Fett, Han Solo, Slave Leia and Greedo. (Han shot first.) These seem to be pretty expensive characters but it would be nice to have something high quality.
