Star Wars: The Black Series has been a wildly popular action figure line. Collectors’ passion for the figures has only intensified in the five years since Hasbro launched the series. The return of Star Wars to movie theaters brought in a whole new wave of collectors who’ve had to pay after-market prices to incorporate some of the original figures into their display, until now.

Next spring, Hasbro will launch the Archive collection. This will give fans the opportunity to secure classic Black Series figures at retail prices. To make sure the value of the original figures is not diminished, however, the Archive collection will have different packaging.

Of course, the Archive collection will still appeal to fans who already secured these figures the first time around. Hasbro is giving the figures a new and improved paint job, taking advantage of recent technological advancements to make the plastic renderings look more like their real-life counterparts.

There will be seven figures released from the Archive collection in 2019: Boba Fett, Luke Skywalker in X-wing gear, Yoda, Bossk, Anakin Skywalker (from Revenge of the Sith), IG-88, and a biker scout Stormtrooper.
