The Black Series was officially announced by Hasbro on January 29th when a USA Today article confirmed the new 6″ series of action figures. It wasn’t until Toy Fair, on February 9th, that it was also announced the 3.75″ line would be called The Black Series. A timeline of the information is listed below for quick reference.
Hasbro also announced the Mission Series and return of Saga Legends during Toy Fair. Both lines have figures with 5 points of articulation (POA) or less, depending on character, and will have a lower price point. The new Darth Vader packaging for these lines will also be used on vehicles, Battle Packs, role play and other releases. Items in this packaging will be tracked in their own checklist, Saga Legends and Mission Series.
Vintage Collection packaged items, which, as of September 2013, only include exclusive store releases, will continue to be tracked in the Vintage Collection checklist.
The Amazon exclusive wave of Legacy Collection Droid Factory figures is listed in this checklist but we will update the Legacy Collection Build-a-Droid Part Matrix to include this new line.
