The Black Series has gone deluxe! Larger scale figures and accessories are coming, kicking off with Wave 1′s Biker Scout and Jabba The Hutt (non SDCC version).

At San Diego Comic-Con 2014, we got a chance to check out Gentle Giant’s Star Wars Kenner Style Boba Fett Life Size Figure.

SDCC is where Black Series launched in 2013 with the Boba Fett and Han Solo in Carbonite set. Over the last year, we’ve seen a solid line up of figures from all eras of Star Wars with more to come. To set off “year 2″ – we get another SDCC exclusive, Jabba the Hutt and his Throne Room. This is a hyped up version of the soon to be released “Deluxe” series figure.
The set comes with Jabba the Hutt, Salacious B. Crumb, a hooka pipe/stand, and a railing. On top of all that, the box itself is a cardboard diorama of Jabba’s throne room from Return of the Jedi featuring artwork to mimic his platform and even a cardboard Han Solo in Carbonite. You can swap out the cardboard Han with the one from Boba’s 2013 set and hang him there instead (see the pics inside).
We’ve done up over 55 pics of the set in high resolution for you, check them out along with our thoughts after the break!
