Happy Star Wars: Fan Celebration Day! Hasbro has asked us to join in the fun and celebrate this day by letting us reveal the next figure to be added to the popular Black Series Carbonized Collection; Boba Fett! This figure, much like many of the others coming this year, pays tribute to the 40th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back. The metallic finish on this figure and packaging looks fantastic and with The Mandolorian Carbonized figure still averaging nearly double his retail, we believe this one will be just as not and if not more. This figure is available now for pre-order in the sites listed in the press release below! Hurry up and don't miss out on this bounty! STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES CARBONIZED [...]

While school is out in many places around the country and world, we are finding new ways to entertain ourselves. Jake (a middle school teacher) and his 13-year-old daughter/student Evelyn decided to make a quick little unboxing video for the entertainment of their middle school while kids are home this week. Jake attempts to show off some of his recent pick-ups and unbox a Black Series Mandalorian figure. We have already heard from some, young and old, who are interested in uniquely unboxing their own Star Wars collectible, if you decide to, make sure to share it with us and we'll share, repost and/or retweet it. In the meantime, stay home if you can, stay safe and keep those hands clean!

Taking place on June 20th-21st, the convention, who has shown fans of the Star Wars Saga so much love in the past, [...]
