Star Wars Black Series Archive Update

Our visitors numbers and behaviours tell us that our Star Wars Black Series segment is the most popular area of the site, and indeed it is probably our biggest single archive of figure reviews and images.


When we launched the website in 2014 we had already missed the early Black Series waves, and the articles for the first year of our tenure were little more than short blog posts with very poor quality images.

Like all our sections, we want a good quality archive for visitors and to that end the last 6-months has seen us completely revisit all the original Phase 1 Black Series releases, and with our reviews of Anakin, Bespin Luke and the Clonetrooper the Orange Line figures are now complete.


We've also made sure every one of our Star Wars Black Series pages has an image for the figure and a checklist of releases by wave and exclusives.

The next stage of our plans is to complete the same exercise through the Blue Phase packaging, revisiting each figure and gallery so that every figure is properly archived and labelled. This will take a while, but once done will give us a much better depth of content. We will then press on through 2015 and 2016 to tidy up those reviews - these will be more tweaks than full rewrites. 2017 and 2018 should already be in a good place


There is also a new feature we are working on for Black Series. It's currently being built but I think it will add another dimension to how our archive reviews are presented.
