Video Review: Star Wars The Black Series SDCC Boba Fett Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 25, 2013

The bad news: it sold out.  The good news: it's coming back in wave 2, minus the carbonite block.  It's The Black Series Boba Fett as Hasbro's debut super-articulated 6-inch action figure.  It has more articulation than ever, and the detail is pretty good too.  Oh, and it's scaled to that Hoverboard you got last year from Matty Collector.  Want to know more? Sure you do - read on and watch the video!
