They were featured in new sets from 1984 through 1992. A nine-year span that is matched only by the classic Lion faction. They came out of retirement in 2001 and 2002 for the Guarded Inn and Black Falcon's Fortress Legends, showed up again in Vintage Minifigure Collection 3 from 2009, and showed up again on a magnet this year. There are plenty of Black Falcons out there for people who want them.
The Black Falcon emblem is very iconic. Perhaps the most iconic LEGO Castle design ever. Changing it would upset long-time fans, and putting classic Black Falcon figures in a standard product line would look cheap to younger fans who are accustomed to the more detailed figures of today.
Seems like a lose/lose situation, but maybe they will sneak more of the classic Black Falcons onto the market through specials sets.
You can speak for yourself, but I agree with SPACE MARINE. I think it would be awesome if Lego relaunched the Black Falcon theme! I also am a big fan of the original Black Falcon torsos and I'm a TFOL too. Even my younger brother agrees that the Black Falcons are the coolest Castle faction to date.

So bricklink or ebay them. They are not rare at all to find. Heck, I was able to gather over 75 with proper heads, shields, and head gear in the span of 3 weeks when I wanted to.

I'm detecting a distinct amount of argumentative quality starting to happen in this topic so please y'all remember to keep it civil. Thanks.

Cool if they did a reboot? Maybe, but in the meanwhile you CAN find black falcons if you want them at about the cost of a collectible fig, no less.
