By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, June 9, 2013

Your long, national nightmare is over - it's Q&A! What does the future of Vintage 3-Packs look like? I'm guessing not great.

The Black Series: How Do You Want It Reviewed?

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, June 2, 2013

OK toy fans - the pre-orders are live and the release date for Star Wars: The Black Series is coming up pretty quickly.  We have a question for you, specifically we'd love to know how you would prefer to see the figures reviewed on this very site when we find/obtain/do not steal our review samples!  Your input is very much appreciated.

The poll will allow you to vote for more than one option - so if there are two you would like, by all means, go for it.  We haven't decided what direction to take for these just yet, and are really curious what the collectors of 2013 want the most.  (We opted to not include a longer video option, because, let's face it, nobody needs 10 minutes to review 1 figure if Siskel and Ebert could debate a film in 3 minutes.)

 

What kind of reviews do you want to see at Galactic Hunter for the 6-inch Black Series Star Wars action figures?
