I know there really hasn't been a ton to choose from this year for the Star Wars line(s), but I thought since we usually did a best of the year list it might be fun to see some people's favorites. Really, the 3 3/4" line was pretty sparse, with most everything just now getting to stores or online. I think more and more of us passed on parts (or all) of these waves as well, or were at least more selective. We had the arrival of the 6" line, and some neato Vintage exclusives. Oh, and the reintroduction of 5 POA figures into the line, so there's that. What are some of your favorites of this year?
Black Series 3 3/4" - Padme, Luke Ceremonial, Pablo Jill, Vizam
Black Series 6" - Han Solo, Boba Fett, Sandtrooper (although all were pretty nifty)
Exclusives - Amazon Slave 1, K-Mart Vintage 2 Packs and Ewok Catapult
Overall, a very slow year for Star Wars stuff. I know that out of the first three waves of the 3 3/4" Black Series, I've picked up 8 figures total. I am really looking forward to the next wave up, but I'm curious to see where the line goes beyond that for 2014. I personally really like the 6" figures so far, although they are a little bit pricey. The vintage exclusives were some of the most exciting for me this year, I've been tempted to get a second Slave 1 for the prices they've dropped to lately on Amazon. All in all, a slow year. Good figures, but maybe not all that exciting overall.
