Everyone believes Boba Fett is dead, eaten by the Sarlacc in the Pit of Carkoon. But the bounty hunter miraculously survives his ordeal and lies unconscious outside the pit, covered in mucus and sand. The Jawas and their RA-7 droid find him and, believing him to be a droid or cyborg, bring him onto their sandcrawler. Fett awakens with no memory, until Han arrives to rescue the stolen R2-D2 from the Jawas. Upon hearing Han's name, Fett's memory quickly returns... with a vengeance!
There are many things we are thankful for in life. And while there are many more important things in life like friends and family, we are extremely thankful for some things that Hasbro has created for us. One item in particular that makes us inordinately happy is the Walmart exclusive Boba Fett/RA-7 Droid Comic Packs set from the 30 (77-07) line. Many disagree with us because one half of the set is a repainted 1998 POTF2 figure and that alone makes the set inferior by more modern standards. But let us tell you that the comic-inspired Boba Fett is reason enough to purchase this set and it’s absolutely one of the best versions of Boba Fett your collection will ever see. Boba Fett is nostalgic, brilliant and extremely colorful. And although he has Sarlacc mucus on his armor, you could instead pretend it’s some sort of battle-damages.... or something else. You decide. The Comic Packs version of Boba Fett is reminiscent of the original 1979 vintage figure. It slightly favors the animated debut Boba Fett we saw in The Star Wars Holiday Special. And it is just overall one of the most attention grabbing versions we’ve come across in years. Medicom Toys made a Boba Fett Kubrick multipack that contained multiple versions of Boba Fett. We’d like for Hasbro to do the same things for us in the basic figure scale. We’re getting a ton and even never before released versions as well. This is one of the standout versions of Boba Fett (and a very rare appearance as well).
Boba Fett is a significant repaint of 2004’s VOTC Boba Fett figure. This is figure is extraordinarily colorful and bright. It catches your eye from a mile away and it’s been flawlessly painted at the factory level with an incredible attention to the details in the comics up to an including the Sarlacc mucus that adorns Boba Fett’s armor. As you know, this sculpt of Boba Fett is incredible and comes with 14 points of articulation including a ball-socket head, 2 ball-jointed shoulders, 2 swivel forearms, swivel waist, 2 swivel hips, 2 ball-jointed knees and 2 ball-jointed ankles. He has the ability to be posed in a variety of options. But the inclusion of ball-jointed hips in this sculpt would render this sculpt as definitive. What can we all do to make Hasbro give us an incredible and definitive version of Boba Fett with ball-jointed hips? We’d love to know what we can do to make this come to pass. To be honest, the figure currently still isn’t 100% perfect (aside from our wish of him having ball-jointed hips). Boba Fett does have a lean to the side, but this can be easily diminished or fixed by playing with the included ankle and knee articulation. We know that the earliest Comic Packs based on Marvel have been heavily criticized by collectors for Hasbro’s use of crazy colors. And you may feel similarly about this Boba Fett. But if there is anything we can sell to you to give this version of him a chance, well, that’s exactly what we’re going to try to do.
