Our friends at MakingStarWars.net have posted an interesting report that Disney Licensing is no longer authorizing the likeness of Princess Leia in her prisoner outfit. This edict extends to approved Lucasfilm & Marvel artist as well (confirmed by J Scott Campbell). “Slave Leia” has been the subject of much discussion over the recent past and as you can see from the image above, this particular likeness has received its fair share of merchandise* over the years.

*Only a sampling of the extensive LFL authorized merchandise.

Our friends at MakingStarWars.net have posted their transcription of their QnA rundown with Hasbro from Celebration Anaheim. We’ve included a nice little excerpt regarding the Black Series line below

Q:  The Black Series line, as it is, is it continuing on to 2016 and beyond?

A: Yeah we have no plans to stop Black Series.  It’s doing really well for us.  We revealed the new Fall 2015 line look.  It’s moving forward.  We’ve had a lot of fans ask about Vintage and Droid Factory, both things we definitely want to get back to in the future but Black Series in terms of our pinnacle figure expression, that’s what it is and that’s how it’s continuing.
