Star Wars: The Black Series, was first announced by Hasbro in January 2013. Although this was not Hasbro's first foray into collectible 6" action figures it is the most recent. The line of toys was released in response to the hype around the release of the new Star Wars film series in order to capitalize on the renewed interest in the brand.
The Vintage Collection harkens back to the era of 3.75 inch figures. Highly poseable. This line encompasses the entire franchise both new and old.
