Expensive, But For Me, Toy Of the Year. Star Wars Boba Fett Han Solo Carbonite Six Inch Black Series HD Figure Review http://bit.ly/16nHKmY
Toy of the year? I think so. Vastly overpriced? Yes. Bloody gorgeous? Yes.
Listen in and watch in HD Widescreen as I deconstruct and explain why this is the THE most expensive toy I now own and may ever own! You may have been cheaper paying scalping prices…
For your money you are getting
- One highly detailed Boba Fett figure.
- One Nan in carbonite Block
- One display stand
- Three weapons
- One beautifully well presented box and 'obi' strip (yes that’s what they are called and no, not a reference to Star Wars)

SDCC/Boba Fett With Han Carbonite Limited To One Per Person. Scalper’s Laugh Maniacally Like the Emperor http://bit.ly/11YxoLG
Like this above? Tough titty, you’re gonna have to pay a sweet price to get them…
Several friends and other sites have all be confirming that SDCC and Hasbro are making arguably the toy of the year, limited to one per person. Very likely to
be the same at CE2.
Add in the cost of my flights, accommodation and that even though Hasbro PR should have sent us one to review, they won’t ship outside the USA. Add it all up and the one I know I will get to buy is looking the most expensive toy…ever.
All the Scalpers in the house go:
I’m not exactly happy at this, but what’s your thoughts? Angry, fed up with Hasbro? Leave a comment and let us know…
Boba Fett & Han Solo Carbonite SDCC-CE2 Exclusive Has A Hidden Feature We Didn’t Know… http://bit.ly/18V4oGT
Our buddies at Sandtroopers get to look at the SDCC Boba Fett & Han Solo Carbonite pack in hand.
Boba is as amazing as we expected and so is the carbonite block, but one thing we haven’t seen before is the plastic stands which come with the figure to display the carbonite block upright or floating.
Some real love went into this which is deeply disappointing on one way.
I’m fortunate enough to attend Celebration Europe II and will be picking this up, but for all those fans who won’t make it to SDCC and Celebration Europe, this is criminal they will have to fight with scalpers to get what is arguably the most in demand toy of the Star Wars year.
Death to all exclusives in my mind.

Sometimes you just wanna cry when manufacturers make exclusives. I swear they murder small kittens and woodland animals at times they can be so evil releasing something so cool for collectors in such limited quantities, on one continent, at one event. Ugh.
Especially when you plenty of scalpers will be ensuring that they buy more then they need, and we all pay through the nose for this online. Slim chance this may be available at hasbrotoyshop.com AFTER SDCC, but again traditionally scalped well.
Celebration Europe II on the other hand may get an exclusive as good as this? Time will tell. Bloody hope so!
We’ll if your fortunate to be going to SDCC I guess as a reward for braving the crowds you get the privilege to buy one of these at….wait for it… $45USD which will be sold at the Hasbro booth at the San Diego Convention Center July 18-21. Well I guess it IS two figures and the $5 extras is well… because they can charge it.
The rest of the Black series will be in stores globally from July/August.
Expect scalpers to have this on fleabay for $99+ from about…now!

Wow, rather cool… and expensive this carbon freeze stuff!
Coming this year to Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you’ll have the opportunity to relive the famous carbon freezing scene from The Empire Strikes Back with the “Carbon-Freeze Me” experience. This new experience was created especially for Disney Parks, and is part of our “D-Tech Me” line that uses technology to take personalization to a whole new level.
Using state-of-the-art imaging technology, this experience casts your likeness as a three-dimensional, eight-inch figurine. At the “Carbon Freezing Chamber” (located adjacent to The American Idol Experience), several cameras will capture multiple angles of your face. The images are then reconstructed in a computer for processing, and, in approximately four weeks, the completed figurine is shipped directly to your house.
Each carbonite figurine is $99.95 (plus shipping).

Hasbro New York Toy Fair 2012 Presentation has been leaked it seems, after they said they would not share it with us…Hmm, any hoo
Sadly even though this is copyright Hasbro, this fan site have sought (like some others do), to put thier site url (pretty illegibly) across all thirty five pages. So to fellow Star Wars sites, if you don’t own an image, and you didnt take the photographs, please dont pee your logo all over things. Not kosher and cheapens your site and is not very friendly to whomever did take the images. We get you want internet fame but there are classier ways other than adding grafitti to an image. Whinge over!
If only we could have a video game of this style for Star Wars!
Author seems to have eluded us depsite looking, but if you know who did these pieces please do let usknow as we are already big fans! Check out some more pixel Star Wars related goodies below…
