“Exclusive” toys and collectibles are a double-edged sword – on one side they can be fantastic pieces made to mark a special event or occasion, but on the other they can be difficult to get and sometimes a smack in the face to those who would love to own them, but just can’t attend the event or afford the ridiculous aftermarket prices. For the summer of 2016, two that fit the bill are the beautiful new STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6″ action figures being offered by Hasbro at San Diego Comic-Con International (SDCC), FanExpo Canada and STAR WARS Celebration Europe. Yesterday afternoon my friends at Hasbro sent over a look at two new depictions of Obi-Wan Kenobi (A NEW HOPE) and Kylo Ren (THE FORCE AWAKENS), each packaged with some excellent accessories. Take a look…
