So today my local Target stores received The Black Series 6-Inch Wave 20 figures (Mace, Battle Droid, Etc) and I noticed that the factory cases (cardboard shipping boxes) have changed a bit.
Some stores received the cases with the purple stripe and text, while others received cases that just had black printing on them. Per the date stamps the cases with the all black printing are the newer cases.
So is Hasbro cutting cost by not using purple ink or did they change the cases to all black print to reflect The Black Series?
Just wanted to give you a heads up so you don't over look them while on the hunt for the figures. Above is a side-by-side comparison pic.
