  4. I like this, but one thing bothers me: why is it called the "Black series" (and before someone chimes in with "Duh, it's called the Black series 'cause the package is black",I can very well see that)? Why not call it the "Star Wars Legendary Collection" or something like that? I guess it could be called anything and people would still buy it, but the name just doesn't sit right with me.

    1. Well why are you called "Black Arbor"? I mean... ok, just kidding. I see what you're saying, but in the end I don't think it really matters. Like you said, the name isn't what's going to sell the line, it's the quality/value of the product. Maybe they felt a name like "Legendary Collection" sounds too limited or too final, and they like to switch up the name every year or two. How do you follow up the Legendary Collection?
