There can be no mistakes this time. Darth Vader, in a desperate search to find the elusive Millennium Falcon and her crew, has called a meeting with several of the galaxy's most feared bounty hunters. They accept their orders to find and capture the crew of the Falcon alive and unharmed. No disintegrations! The task will be difficult, but the reward will be substantial.

If you’re a Star Wars collector, you likely have a soft spot for bounty hunters, especially the bounty hunters that made the briefest of appearances in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. These six memorable villains collectively comprise a most wretched hive of scum and villainy that Star Wars collectors just can’t get enough of in the basic figure line. As multipacks really started becoming more and more popular, Hasbro got really aggressive and put together a box seven of no less than seven action figures and developed the Hunt For The Millennium Falcon: Bounty Hunter Pack, conceptually one of the finest exclusives they could have ever produced. Sadly, most of the figures in it are aged, yet it’s almost forgivable in a strange sense because of how awesome they look together in the very cool packaging. Inside of this multipack you get Darth Vader and then all six bounty hunters in order from left to right exactly as they appeared in the film. It’s just too cool for words almost. Originally planned to be an exclusive for The Original Trilogy Collection in 2005, it was delayed and shifted to The Saga Collection and released as a Previews exclusive. Hasbro wasn’t careful when they updated the box art. You can see a portion of The Original Trilogy Collection logo under the “new” The Saga Collection logo. It’s interesting to say the least.

Darth Vader, IG-88 and Boba Fett are all recycled figures from the Power Of The Jedi collection, although it’s perhaps a little bit more fair to say that Darth Vader is from the 2003 phase of the Star Wars “Saga” collection. His sculpt was updated to get rid of the translucent portions as he was based on the Darth Vader (Emperor’s Wrath) figure originally. Now he’s wholly black and “normal” ready to dictate orders to the bounty hunters he commissioned to locate the Millennium Falcon and her crew. IG-88 is simply a terrible figure and Hasbro needs to build this droid from the ground up. (Editor’s Note: They did finally. IG-88 (Bounty Hunter) was released in the 2007 VTSC line and it’s an incredibly definitive figure.) So it’s time to retire this IG-88 sculpt. Boba Fett is a repaint of the POTJ Boba Fett (300th Special Action Figure) and while it looks pretty good, something odd has happened to our sample’s helmet. The “bridge” of it is caved in a bit and looks like he sustained some unnecessary battle-damage. You can see this clearly in our photo gallery. Dengar is probably the most recent figure in this set. He is a repaint of 2004’s SW Dengar (Executor Meeting) (’04 #19) figure. The best parts about him are his ball-jointed shoulders which make him very versatile in the option you have to pose him. His paint job is gorgeous and his rifle has never looked better.

Bossk, 4-LOM and Zuckuss are all from The Power Of The Force line. Bossk and 4-LOM are from the “green card” era in 1997 while Zuckuss is from the Freeze Frame era a year later in 1998. The year delay for Zuckuss has affected just how much better he holds up when compared to Bossk and 4-LOM. He has better detail and better proportions and now that he’s been repainted for this multipack, we have to say that he too hasn’t looked better. Bossk has always been a great figure and he looks fine in this set. We’re quite surprised that Hasbro didn’t use 2004’s SW Bossk (Executor Meeting) (’04 #17) figure instead of this one. The 2004 figure has more articulation and a better likeness. However, that figure does suffer from an awkward stance. 4-LOM also holds up well. Hasbro repainted this droid for this multipack. We have to be honest here. His eyes (photoreceptors) are much too bright green, so we think he is colored incorrectly here. So as a sum of parts, the Hunt For The Millennium Falcon: Bounty Hunter Pack is a perfect multipack. But if you’re looking for loose figures to play with individually, you’re going to feel like something is missing here. Until Hasbro updates the figures, this should be a great place to score the fan favorite bounty hunters all at once. (Editor’s Note: Hasbro needs to “reissue” this set with all the available modern figures including 2010’s TVC Darth Vader (VC08), 2010’s TVC Dengar (VC01), 2007’s VTSC IG-88 (Bounty Hunter), 2010’s VTSC Boba Fett (VC09), 2007’s VTSC Bossk (Bounty Hunter), 2007’s TAC 4-LOM (No. 41) and 2009’s LC Zuckuss (BD54).)
