Celebrate the legendary Star Wars trilogy that changed the universe forever, with The Original Trilogy Collection. This collection brings to life the incredible story of good versus evil that captured our imagination and took us to a galaxy far, far away. The finest recreations of the iconic Star Wars heroes and villains are back with incredible detail and premium features to commemorate each epic tale in the Original Trilogy: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. And, as a tribute to the dedication of Star Wars fans everywhere, we are re-releasing elements of the original packaging that harken back to the creation of Star Wars action figures, which began over 25 years ago with the Original Trilogy. May the Force be with you!

When it came to making Boba Fett action figures based on his appearance from Return Of The Jedi, Hasbro could never quite get it right. The incorrect colors often plagued the earliest versions of Boba Fett and then other mixed details from both Episode V and Episode VI for a strange yet unique concatenation. All was remedied with the exquisitely produced The “Vintage” Original Trilogy Collection. Not only did it being collectors a super-articulated iteration of the most famous bounty hunter in the galaxy, he was placed on classic “vintage styled” packaging. There is literally nothing to complain about with this figure, but we would be remiss if you didn’t express that it would have been perfect if Hasbro decided to use the running change version of Boba Fett (a scene from Return of the Jedi) instead of the classic original artwork. It’s not even an issue really and more of a preference. (We like seeing card back reference images match the action figure inside of the packaging is all.) Boba Fett is a spectacular action figure. The details etched into the sculpt are nothing but impressive and the final paint job the action figure received has brought it to life.

It took a long time to get the consummate Boba Fett action figure (based on his appearance from Episode VI), but it has been worth the wait. It’s likely we won’t need another update to this action figure again. Boba Fett comes with 14 points of articulation. A ball-socket head is accompanied by ball-jointed shoulders, ball-jointed elbows, swivel gauntlets, a swivel waist, swivel hips, ball-jointed knees and ball-jointed ankles. The articulation provided in this action figure’s legs don’t allow for full range of movement, but you should definitely know that you can attain a great variety of poses from the multiple articulation points in the legs. The “stepping forward” and “aggressive action” poses may be much harder to configure. You can lean Boba Fett forwards and backwards and there is enough “give” in his arms to situate his gun in a believable firing motion. So what else more would you really want to see here? Boba Fett’s helmet is ever so slightly “too wide” and we say that very gently. It honestly isn’t enough to detract from the overall quality. The rangefinder isn’t overly thick and in good scale with the rest of the helmet. Boba Fett really looks marvelous.

Boba Fett’s accessories include the aforementioned blaster rifle and the removable jetpack. A really nice touch added to the figure is the soft-goods cape. It’s been treated to stay in a folded position, so it lays nice and close to his back and is thin enough to be held in place by the jet pack once that is assembled to him. When Boba Fett is fully stocked with his accessories he is one bad-looking action figure. (That is meant in a good way.) Upon further (and much closer) inspection of Boba Fett you will see just how much effort went into developing his sculpt. Dents in the armor, explicit creases in his jumpsuit and a stunning paint job to pull all of these details to the surface are just some of the examples of what sets Boba Fett so far above and beyond all previous versions. And if the sculpt and decoration of the action figure alone aren’t enough reason to persuade you then just check out the packaging. A replica Kenner card back from 1983 and 1984 has been recreated to give Boba Fett the absolute most perfect home. Aside from a small font issue with the words “Return Of The Jedi”, this is indeed a truly special gift to collectors. Expect to see Boba Fett again in the future. This is too good of a sculpt not to reissue again and again.
