Link roundup

1. Star Wars Black Series Running Changes

On “Force Friday,” eager Star Wars fans stood in line outside stores in anticipation of scooping up new toys based on the characters from the then-upcoming movie The Force Awakens. As we all-too-quickly learned, the demand for the 6-inch Black Series figures far outpaced the supply, and fans and collectors were sent scrambling to get their mitts on 6-inch renditions of Rey, Kylo Ren, the First Order Stormtrooper, etc. For some, this took a lot of work. For others, it took a lot of money because the secondary market became a go-to. As it turns out, however, we were probably better off waiting when it came to two key figures, Rey and Kylo Ren, because the recent repacks in waves 3 and 4 appear to be superior versions of those we went crazy trying to track down at launch.
