Carbonized Paz Vizsla. Target
Exclusive. Codenamed "Jog". MSRP is $36.99. Available for pre-order on 7/23 @ 8am CDT here. On shelf Spring 2022.

From the press release:

Carbonized Collection fans have some fresh bounties to hunt.

Hasbro announced today new Carbonized Collection editions of Scout Trooper, Shoretrooper, and Paz Vizsla, all inspired by their appearance in The Mandalorian, for the vaunted 6-inch Star Wars: The Black Series line of action figures. In the Carbonized Collection, figures are treated with a sleek, metallic finish, while maintaining all the detail and articulation that are hallmarks of the Black Series. This marks the first complete Carbonized Collection wave dedicated to The Mandalorian since the deco’s debut in 2019; in addition, packaging for this range will also feature a Carbonized-style treatment, complementing the unique paint applications of the figures.

Man, I saw Vizsla and thought "We're getting Pre Vizsla, but why is he carbonized? I just want a standard version." Then I realized it was Paz and died inside.

Gotta say I really like the paint deco on this one more than teh original, the gold pack secifially really stands out. But at $40-45 I can easily pass.

Interesting that they actually used the character's name on the packaging this time.
Also interesting that they're doing a third release on this sculpt even though it is highly screen in-accurate...

That's definitely the most interesting part. They've finally acknowledged his name.

We definitely need some Paz/Pre Vizsla story down the road.

Maybe they'll shock us and actually do Pre Vizsla, since most of his armor is basically Jango. Thye could even just repaint the Loyalist and sculpt a new head if they're being frugal. Though I would prefer they use Boba and just retool the legs.

While I don’t quite understand the Carbonized line, this figure looks better than the original, imho. Don’t have the heavy trooper, and may bite on this one depending on how deep they gouge.

Hasbro wouldn’t update the sculpt for accuracy when they can repaint it instead. Keep hating these repaints and cheaply made exclusives BUT we haven’t lost too much quality with the regular releases so have to keep that in mind. If this tactic allows them to make new tooling for regular releases that’s a system that benefits everyone. It just sucks when it’s something you wanted in your collection and it’s inaccurate like cough Ponda Baba cough.

While thse do feel like cheap and lazy attempts, which seam to be gettign quite excessive, my only hope is that enough people are intersted to make them worthwhile effort on their part. And that enough of tehm sell to to the intended job, subsidise new sculpts.

Not all of them are winners and even those are less of a must have with the increased price, I'd have said why not at the old normal price of $22-24, but at almost $27 for basic and $40 for Deluxe it's unfortunately a hell to the no thank you.

I have to say this is one of the best looking Carbonized figures yet. Maybe even better than the Sith Trooper. I already have 3 of him - one original boxed, one Credit Collection carded, & one original loose - but, I like the look so much I'm definitely thinking of picking up a couple more. That gold really pops!

Yeah, this one looks really great. I sold my regular edition after I picked up the Credit Collection piece, but this will probably get grabbed as well.

I love the Heavy Mando look, I already own the other two so I must have several of this one. Hate that it comes from Target tho

The gold looks outstanding. I can’t look past the completely inaccurate sculpt though. Easy pass for me but if I just had the original release I might pick this up

Yeah, the figuarts just shows how off so many details are. I get they rushed to get the figure out originally but after this carbonized release, I wouldn’t mind if they took another crack at him but I doubt it until we see him in season 3.

I feel like I should be obligated to pick this up now that they're using my boy's actual name.

But...I have the original release and like that just fine. If I'm going to drop money on another one, I'll save up and import a Figuarts version. Sorry, Paz...

The more I see this guy, the more I think I want it. I think Hasbro hooked me into getting this a 3rd time. 😅

Target has a coupon "Spend $75 and get $15 off"

If you have the red card or app you need to just click on the coupon, and then buy all 3 to get a decent discount.

I had a coupon in Target Circle for $5 off a $25 toy purchase. I'm not sure whether it was one of the "just for you" coupons that was offered to me based on my purchase history or one that was available to everyone, but it would be worth checking your own Target Circle offers.

The carbonised look looks decent, I still haven’t picked up the original version so might end up going for this release instead.

I have both the original and the 2 of the Credit Collection one which I use has his grunts. So I may pass on him as well. If I find him next year in store maybe I will get him.

I think a resale shop near me has one of the previous ones. I skipped both of the originals but have been considering him for a bit. That price is just too high for me fort what it is. The Wampa was cheaper.
