Is it just me, or does anyone else think this thing is very weak?  The colors are off, the belt bags are huge and look like they are brand new.  The belt looks like it just goes straight across...even the vintage figure had the belt at a slight angle that gives the character some swagger.  I just think it's terribly dull, and not very accurate.  I can't believe that they didn't nail Fett 100% as it seems it would be one of the top 5 purchases for most adult fans.

This figure seriously has me reconsidering collecting this line.

Also agree, the price is pretty unreasonable... $45 is very steep.  I think $20's overpriced on the figures themselves though.  They're $15 at best.  And this to me is $25 or $30 maybe.  It's a con exclusive, I'm sure that's playing into it somewhat, but still that's way overpriced.  $25-$30 is where I think this needed to be...  That said I think it'll still probably sell out, and if by some miracle it's widely available I think it'll still do well.

6" figures do look nice though, but I'm still passing on this line...  This set ALMOST makes me wanna buy it though.

I think the price is on target for this scale and for it involving 100% new tooling. If this was a repaint of an existing figure I would agree though.

Maybe as an exclusive but the block is solid, and being charged what a full figure would run?

I didn't take packaging into account and should've but still...  I just see it as a little overpriced.  Not by double, but not good.  I think it's neat...  I think it's a good presentation.

I hate the way Hasbro ran their exclusives booth last year. You had to be at their booth at an unannounced 2am to get a ticket to line up to buy from them. Since I'm only there Saturday there is no way I'm going to get a chance to get any exclusives. So I'm pretty much saying F-U Hasbro and your over priced exclusives!

well of the all the 6" black series figures, this boba fett even as an exclusive is one I'd love to have along with a Stormtrooper and Vader.  We'll just have to see how they all shake out.

I just hope that Hasbro doesn't shoot their feet off right out of the gate with this line.  If this is hard to get then people who want to collect the line might be turned off by this if they can't get one especially since this probably is the first figure to be released in the line.

Good news for our overseas friends - it looks like the 6" Boba Fett & Carbonite Block set will also be available as a Celebration Europe II exclusive

Is that after SDCC? Seems like that would potentially affect the # of units they release for sale on HTS after the ComiCon is over.

Hasbro should crank these out so ANYONE that wants one can get it.  A little goodwill here may pay dividends with collectors (who they seem to be aiming this line at) down the road.  I want one of these things, even at that absurd price, but I live on the east coast so there is no chance of me getting anywhere near SDCC.  Do the right thing, Hasbro, and keep making these until they sit.  Hell do online pre-orders.

I doubt it. I would think that the production run would be separate for the stock they are bringing to CEII.

I think there may be more of these than past SDCC exclusives...  Just a hunch.

Considering that this is officially the only one of this line (that has been currently announced) that I plan on getting, I certainly hope that is the case.  Maybe Hasbro can spring for 4 hamsters to put on the wheel to power the HasbroToyShop.com website this year so people can actually order one. :P

I found this on eBay for $100 with free shipping and sprung on it. I plan on getting all of the Black Series, so it was a must. Sucks that I actually spent more for this than all the figures in the first wave, but oh well.
Neither Snake nor Wesker, but a perfect combination of the two.

I'm sure Brian's Toys will find a way around that.  ;)
