    I didn't see a thread specifically for the Hasbro Black Series Centerpieces, so here it is.

    I have this one and boy do I LOVE it:

    I'm thinking about buying this one, but I'm not sure. Anyone have it? How does it look in person?

    I think these things are super cool, but I'm a total nerd, so.

    Of COURSE I just bought the SK Base one. If anyone else is interested, it's still available directly from Hasbro.

    I've got all of the Centerpiece Edition releases except for the general release version of Rey. All of my Black Series collection is still in the packaging, but I will at some point be doing some serious unboxing.

    When they first came out I was not incredibly keen on the Centerpiece Edition sets. Mostly because the figures themselves are static and you can't really pose them. But some of what is cool about them is the interactive nature of these sets. They're designed to incorporate other Black Series figures. And when I do set mine up I'll be doing that, too. I'm probably going to set them up like so:

    -Darth Vader (Tantive IV boarding) with 1 x Stormtrooper and 1 x battle damaged Stormtrooper. If there's room, I'll also get my Rebel Fleet Troopers in there.
    -Luke Skywalker (Battle of Hoth) with 1 x Snowtrooper and 1 x AT-AT Driver
    -Kylo Ren (Jakku village) with Poe Dameron (Target exclusive 2-pack), 1 x First Order Stormtrooper, 1 x First Order Flametrooper and FN-2187
    -SDCC Exclusive Rey vs Kylo Ren (Starkiller base) - this one is pretty well self contained, unless you want a wounded Finn laying unconcious on the ground

    The Black Series looks so cool, but they are so expensive here in Europe.

    I currently only own this one of Darth Vader. Sadly I have already lost my red saber piece for his blade since they aren't made to stay in the plastic hilt that well, but I may try and find it or remake one of my own. Currently, it looks just as good with him holding the hilt with the saber shut off and seems to be more canonically accurate as we never see Vader actually with his blade activated on the Tantive IV in ANH, but alas, it looks cool regardless. It takes only one AA battery and it slides into the assembly by the explosion in the wall next to where the figure stands. The tiny little two-notch tab above the explosion is the button that activates a full light display. I just want to get the Luke one next because it's so glorious.

    I'm sorry to hear they're expensive for you. :mad:

    That one's pretty awesome, too. The only problem with these Centerpieces is that they take up a fair bit of room! I haven't unboxed my Starkiller Base one as of yet.

    Just a little bit of display space, but it's really not that much. The Starkiller one is probably easily the largest.

    Which I have and haven't un-boxed yet; it's definitely large.

    Two figs and a display for double the space.
