Ten years after the fight to save Naboo from invasion, the galaxy is on the brink of civil war. Under the leadership of a renegade Jedi, thousands of solar systems threaten to secede from the Galactic Republic. A courageous Jedi Knight, his impulsive and headstrong apprentice, and a queen-turned-senator are drawn into the heart of the conflict... and the beginning of war.
The offspring of the resourceful and dangerous Jango Fett, young Boba was trained by his father in the art and skill of bounty hunting. The tragic events that soon befall Boba will give rise to a fierce desire and determination to become the galaxy's most feared bounty hunter.
Man, Boba Fett had a bad attitude even as a youngster. We all witnessed the sneers Boba Fett gave Obi-Wan Kenobi during the infamous Kamino confrontation. Clearly not falling far from the tree, Boba Fett is the unaltered clone of Jango Fett, and his son. Hasbro decided to present the Star Wars action figure buying public with a multilayered version of Boba Fett. Properly called Boba Fett (Kamino Escape), this iteration of Boba Fett recreates the very wet scene where Boba Fett and his father Jango flee Kamino after an interruption of battle with Obi-Wan Kenobi. There are also some “Expanded Universe” portions of this action figure too, which seemingly appear to be the next progression of the character, but certainly not things we witnessed seeing in Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones. The inclusion of accessories like Jango’s helmet, or his jetpack are awesome accompaniments for Boba Fett, but we really only saw him don very simple Kaminoan attire in the film. It’s all good because these extra pieces help recreate some additional play value that the movie scenes just don’t provide.
Boba Fett, when fully stripped down, is wearing the same outfit as the rest of the young clones on Kamino. The multi-colored blue outfit has been replicated nicely, but the sculpt isn’t perfect. Boba Fett’s stance is widespread, and he of course has a hole in his back to accept Jango’s jetpack. Thankfully the hole in his back can be covered up with his rain gear (or shawl for short) quite nicely. You cannot have him don Jango’s jetpack while wearing the rain poncho, so that will have to removed first. You can create a miniature version of Jango Fett however, thanks to the inclusion of a removable helmet, removable jetpack and two Westar-34 blaster pistols with blast effects. You’ll notice that his Westar-34 blaster pistols are different from Jango Fett’s. They have pointier noses so the blast effects can attach to them. You might want to make a mental note of this when packing the action figures away, to ensure that you’ve got the right accessories with the right figures. There are a lot of bells and whistles with Boba Fett (Kamino Escape), but much of it isn’t screen accurate. You may or may not care about this, but it seems that most collectors strive for screen accuracy first.
