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.
