EB Games had the Black Series 40th Ann "Static Luke on Base" Titanium figure

As per title - EB is apparently getting these 3.75" statues of the main ANH characters. I didn't get the price, but it comes in a cubic box, already on the base, good I suppose for those of you who don't open. The box is one size smaller than a Funko pop box.

What are kids collecting today?

When I was a kid it was the 3 3/4 Kenner figures and vehicles. Now that I have my own kids, my three teenage sons are into Star Wars, but don't seem to have much interest in action figures like most of us older folks did back in the 70's and 80's. My eldest son is 18 and is big into collecting Lego but also bought the 6 inch Ahsoka. My 15 year old likes Star Wars but doesn't collect anything Star Wars related apart from the Battlefront game. My 13 year old is all about lightsabers and Star Wars tsum tsums. Is it just in my family or are kids just not that interested in action figures anymore? Figures seem to move pretty slow at the stores around here too, so it has me wondering if it's mainly adults keeping the action figure lines going.
