Review: Chewbacca - TBS [P2] - Six Inch Figure (#04)

Posted by Paul | October 23, 2014 at 12:15 AM EDT |

It's time for some new figures again! We've managed to remain spoiler free with The Black Series [Phase II] wave 5, and now it's time for our assessment of them. Let's start with The Black Series [Phase II] Chewbacca (#04) figure, a figure that was cancelled from the orange line look and has finally been released. We're a bit stuck with this one. It's good, but it's not what we really expected. Find out more in our Research Droids Reviews today.
