Thread: Top 5 Black Series 6" Figures

  1. #1

    Top 5 Black Series 6" Figures

    I dont know if this belongs here or in its own dedicated thread but I thought it would be fun to have a bunch of the forum members list their top 5 favorite BS6 figures that they own along with a brief description as to why. Here are mine:

    Darth Vader 40th: Pretty much near perfect sculpt and likeness to how Vader appeared in ANH. Gives me hope moving forward as to how accurate Hasbro can be when they put their mind to it.

    Prototype Fett: I have loved the Fett-man since I was a little kid and since I started collecting this line so late this was the Fett that I could afford. Would still prefer having the original Fett but I still love this figure.

    Sabine: This is probably the craziest and most colorful figure I have and she is also a Mandalorian with a Fett style helmet and armor. The figure is so different from any of my other figures that it really stands out to me making it one of my favs.

    Darth Revan: I just love the look of this figure. The two lightsabers and that ancient Mandalorian mask under a dark shroud give this character a very mysterious and menacing look. I never knew much about the character before getting the figure but when a figure looks so cool that it makes you go read and learn about the character it has to be good. I now plan to play through KOTOR soon just because of how cool Revan is.

    Director Krennic: I really enjoyed the character in the film and I love the look of this figure. Hasbro nailed the head sculpt IMO and the white imperial officer's uniform looks fantastic. I know the non-softgoods cape inhibits posing but I think it looks fine on the figure and Krennic is not really the type of character that needs to be in crazy action poses anyway.

    Honorable Mention: Old man Ben Kenobi. I like the look of the soft goods on this figure and IMO this may be Hasbro's best head sculpt of all time.

    Ben Kenobi ANH - excellent face sculpt, great attention to detail on his outfit.

    Greedo ANH - I'm only disappointed I waited so long to open him. Such a great sculpt. I know the eyes are a little too oval but it doesn't bother me in the least.

    Jango Fett AOTC - this figure just looks so good and the face sculpt is fantastic so he looks awesome whether he has his helmet on or not.

    Tusken Raider ANH - I normally hate soft goods but they work perfectly with this guy. Very posable with great accessories.

    Jawa ANH - I never army build but I just had to have two of these guys. Really glad they didn't go with soft goods. They look great posed with R2, R5 and Threepio.

    Honorable Mentions: Director Krennic and Leia Boushh (wearing the helmet).
    Be careful not to choke on your aspirations, Director...

    My top Five:

    1) 40th Anniversary Darth Vader - If you could only get one, this is the one. Darth Vader is iconic, and this is the best representation of him I've seen in this scale (IMO of course)

    2) Sandtrooper - Personally I prefer the one with the Orange shoulder pauldron, but they are all good. It's a fun figure, with GREAT accessories. I want to throw the Stormtrooper on this list too, but it's too similar, and the Sandtrooper beats him due to the accessories.

    3) Han Solo - It's Han Solo! Figuarts has stolen a lot of it's thunder, so he almost didn't make the list. But he deserves to be here because before Figuarts he was my favorite Black Series figure, just because of who he was.

    4) Greedo - One of the best things about Star Wars is the aliens, and Greedo is the perfect representative. I do wish there were more background aliens in the line

    5) Commander Cody - I just love that figure, and have had a lot of fun with him. I think he looks great. The clones were the best thing about the prequels, and the Clone Wars animated show endeared them to me.


    Honorable mentions: I Love the bounty hunters and really wanted to add them, but there is something wrong with the execution of each, so they got bumped, for what I felt were more perfect figures. I also wanted to add Qui Gon and the Tuskan Riader, I think they are about perfect. It's hard for me to add TFA or R1 figures to the top of the list because I don't have the connection with those films that I do with the previous 6, but Ello Asty, K-2SO, and the Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader deserve honorable mentions and stand on their own. Darth Revan is an awesome figure, but an unknown character for me. And I have a Knock-off Darth Maul, had I owned the real thing, he very well may have bumped Cody off the list.

    Of the ones I own (in no real order):

    Luke Skywalker ("Farmboy" version): I know the consensus is that generally he isn't very good, but I like him.
    Scarif Stormtrooper: Is fast becoming probably my favorite Imperial trooper type besides the Navy Troopers.
    Death Trooper: Just an all-around cool-looking figure.
    Death Squad Commander: As mentioned above, Navy Troopers are one of my favorite trooper types, and I love finally having them in 6".
    R5-D4: I just think he's adorable.
    "I mean, really, how many times will you look under Jabba's manboobs?" - bkusna

    Black Series 6" Wish List: Aemon Gremm, Moff Jerjerrod, Death Star Gunner, Ponda Baba, Dr. Evazan.

    Interesting to hear all these other top 5's, keep them coming!!

    TK1981 agree that Jango is awesome, barely missed my top 5, could have easily been in if I didn't like Krennic's character so much to be honest. Should have had him as an honerable mention. Lots of love for Greedo in here too. The figure looks great in pics (I dont own him though). May have to hunt one down if I can get him for a good price.

    I really want a DT specialist, hope that 3 pack goes on clearance soon...

    I really want a Tusken too but have yet to see either the red box or the 40th in store yet. May have to resort to an online pre order

    I love the Krennic character as well. The only thing that keeps him off the top 5 is that the face is too plain. I've seen Oldboy's custom painted Krennic head and it shows what could have been.

    Yeah Greedo is awesome. It's amazing that Star Wars is so well known for their aliens but there are only a handful in the Black Series: Greedo, Bossk, Tusken Raider, Jawa, Tauntaun, Wampa, Jabba, Salacious Crumb and Ello Asty. I don't think I missed any.

    Is the salacious crumb an articulated figure or just an accessory molded in 1 piece? I dont have the exclusive jabba so I have never seen him in person.
