Star Wars Black Series Carbonized Boba Fett, The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary

Star Wars Fan Appreciation Day, 31st March 2020, saw a number of new Star Wars Action Figures revealed by Hasbro through a number of fan sites.


As a follow up to the Carbonized Exclusives we got at the back end of 2019, Hasbro have two new Carbonized figures lined up for Summer 2020 - the Imperial Stormtrooper and Boba Fett, who we are looking at here...



Boba Fett, from The Empire Strikes Back, will be presented in a green metallic box and he has been full recoloured with metallic paint throughout, even including his soft goods cape. Carbonized Fett is a re-use of the existing Boba Fett sculpt and has the same weapons.



In a change to the format of the first four Carbonized figures, this figure will not be numbered on the box. It will carry the 40th Anniversary Logo for The Empire Strikes Back in the top right corner. It also will not be an exclusive to one retailer and it is up for pre-order now at numerous retailers for a late Spring release (May/June).



STAR WARS: THE BLACK CARBONIZED COLLECTION 6-INCH BOBA FETT Figure (HASBRO/Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $24.99/Available: Spring 2020)  Fans and collectors can imagine scenes from the Star Wars Galaxy with this STAR WARS: THE BLACK CARBONIZED COLLECTION 6-INCH BOBA FETT Figure, which is carefully detailed to look like the character from STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. Featuring premium detail, multiple points of articulation (4 fully articulated limbs), and a metallic finish, this CARBONIZED COLLECTION figure really stands out in any STAR WARS fan’s collection. Includes figure and 2 accessories. Available for pre-order at Hasbro Pulse, Big Bad Toy Store, Entertainment Earth and more.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
