Star Wars Black Series 6" Boba Fett & Han Solo in Carbonite

Postby Purity » Tue May 07, 2013 11:27 pm

You read that right! To follow the excitement of the news of 6" Star Wars figures, Hasbro has confirmed that Star Wars Black Series 6" Boba Fett and Han Solo in Carbonite will be at SDCC 2013! I don't know about you, but I am VERY excited!

Here's the articles

Hahahahaha! I know right! I'm just hoping Hasbro will put it on their website and distribute them well. Preferably at the same time SDCC is (McFarlane Toys did it, why can't they?). I really don't want to re-live the ML X-Force 3 pack again...

i think making this an sdcc exclusive would be a baaad move, the line is only just starting and i'm really interested but making this an exclusive would definitely alienate me from collecting them. I could probably stretch to the 40 odd price but the prices this guy is gonna fetch (as an exclusive) on the after market will be ludicrous. If I can't have Bobba in my collection i don't want this collection :cry: :evil: :-({|=

Darth...sit down...It is gunna be okay.

Boba Fett WITH Han in carbonite is SDCC exclusive. I am willing to bet my bottom dollar they will release a Boba WITHOUT Han in carbonite sometime down the line. I mean look at how Hasbro has done their recent ML exclusives. So far we have gotten Thor, Wolverine, & archangel just with a simple repaint. So yeah... if you think Hasbro is going to miss out on the cash cow that is having a 6 inch Boba Fett on the racks your mad!

*silently pulls out a chair*

OK way to settle me down dude :lol:
I guess you're right and i suppose i can live without Han in carbonite :-k
I'm thinking i'm maybe a little over worried about everything since the manager of my football team retired yesterday, i'm sure the news has hit the US being as it's such massive news for the world of football ahem sorry soccer but yeah now Sir Alex has stepped down after 26 years in charge (nearly my entire lifetime and certainly my lifetime as a utd fan) i guess i'm just bracing myself for more bad news :lol:

I am not 100% convinced that we won't see the carbonite Han again just this particular package configuration is SDCC exclusive.

As far as Sir Alex is concerned. What do soccer managers even do? Do they call plays and make substitions like Baseball coaches? Or are they in charge of trades and stuff like basketball managers?

Furthermore I think this whole soccer/football thing needs to come to an end. Me and you can end it like LL Cool J and Brad Paisley ended racism! I vote that for now on our sport shall be called football while your game where you use your feet to kick a ball shall be called futball as you people have a weird obsession with the letter "U" ...I mean what the hell is colour :lol: :badgrin: :lol:

Im also about 90% sure they'll re-release Fett and probably Solo (like Therapist said) seperately. The two are very key characters in Star Wars fandom. Also, Hasbro adores re-using old molds, especially since they save them money. Though they don't listen to they're fans much (*cough* Avengers 6 inch line), but the aforementioned reasons surpass their lack of fan communication. I'm more worried about getting one of the exclusives. Hasbro should do what McFarlane did with they're exclusives where they made the figure available at Toysrus.com the same day as SDCC. It was a fantastic way for collector's who don't live near California to have access to the exclusives. Hasbro's really gotta step up their game for collectors. Between they're distribution, (both exclusives and toy lines in general) variant releases, and the characters they choose to put in each line, I'm really getting sick of the way they're doing their 6" action figure lines.

:lol: They pretty much do the lot, tactics, transfers, substitutions and report to the fat cats at the top. As far as the U debate goes, I'm not getting drawn into a debate over who speaks / spells English best ;). I just hope you're right about Bobba, I can live without Han in carbonite. I also hope the distribution on this line is as good as the usual starwars distribution.
