When Luke Skywalker and friends attempt to escape the jaws of the Sarlacc, the ruthless bounty hunter Boba Fett ensnares Luke with a rope-firing wrist gauntlet. But Fett's jet backpack accidentally activates and he rolls into the clutches of the Sarlacc.

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 made for a strange yet unique concatenation of what you could consider screen accuracy. All was remedied with the exquisitely produced The “Vintage” Original Trilogy Collection version of Boba Fett. 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 couldn’t be a more potent mix to totally engage and enthrall Star Wars collectors. There was literally nothing to complain about with this figure, but collectors noted that it would have been sublime to see Boba Fett get transferred to the vintage running change card back style (which shows a scene from Return Of The Jedi). But that was not even an issue really and more of a preference. Now, this wonderful Boba Fett gets a slightly revised paint job (which is barely noticeable by the way) for the popular and collector engaging 30 (77-07) Saga Legends sub-line. Boba Fett really looks marvelous even if he is just a slightly repainted repack. He should remain an evergreen in the basic figure line.

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 certainly 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 an impressive 23 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. And the bets part is that it articulates.

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 because modern collectors are thoroughly enjoying the 30th anniversary packaging of the Star Wars toy line. To help celebrate that further, Hasbro has included an Episode VI specific collectors’ coin. It’s a nice nod to the vintage 1985 The Power Of The Force line. Expect to see Boba Fett again in the future. This is too good of a sculpt not to reissue again and again.
