Star Wars The Black Series Wave 1 Six Inch Figure Reviews

October 22nd, 2013 by Marc 2 Comments

Damn you, Celebration Europe!!! 

Thanks to that epic event, I was introduced to the Black Series figure wave – and as soon as I saw them, I knew I was hooked.  I immediately picked up the exclusive Boba Fett figure available at the convention but no, that wasnt enough.  I had to have more.  I had to have them all.  Never before have I collected an entire wave of figures until now – but thankfully the wave consists of only four figures so it didn’t send my account balance over to the dark side.  Or did it?  Does red count as dark?

Anyway… yes!  Four highly detailed figures, which I have had the pleasure of reviewing, and you can check out the reviews of Luke Skywalker, Darth Maul, The Sandtrooper and R2 D2 below… will you be picking up any of these figures?  Have you already?  If so, let us know, do you agree with my opinions?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
