Reuse and Repaints

Expectation versus Reality

But after a few good waves with new characters, Hasbro dropped a release notice that blew up the collector-verse: A comic line Black Series Black Krrsantan. Collectors were probably expecting a figure closer to the massive Wookie on their TV screens in The Book of Boba Fett, but what they are getting (for a price of $24.99) is a repaint of Chewbacca.

Marvel/Hasbro is so far ahead of Lucasfilm/Hasbro it is not even remotely amusing | credit @JordanMaison
