Boba Fett

General Analysis

If you were fortunate enough to grow up with the original Kenner Star Wars line, you probably will never forget your first encounter with Boba Fett. Some of us took advantage of the special mail-away offer, while others of us rushed to our most favorite “Star Wars store” and made him a priority to add to our collections. I wish I could remember how I acquired mine, but I do recall always making him an integral part of my playtime. Without having seen THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, Boba Fett became one of the most important action figures in my collection. I used to dream and fantasize about how he utilized the tools in his shin pockets and how that fireball came out of his gauntlet so perfectly round. I didn’t learn of the infamous “rocket-firing” Boba Fett until I was in college, but I was thankful when Hasbro issued a replica of the figure in THE VINTAGE COLLECTION in 2010 (as the first mail-away offer for THE VINTAGE COLLECTION just like the 1979 Boba Fett was for the vintage Kenner line). As an adult collector, during the time THE POWER OF THE FORCE “2” line was launched, I always wondered why Boba Fett wasn’t reissued in 1985 THE POWER OF THE FORCE line. That always felt like a massive misstep for Kenner from my perspective. No matter what, Boba Fett is still a beautiful Kenner action figure. I never lost my affection for Boba Fett, and I hope Hasbro always realizes how vital this bounty hunter is to the STAR WARS brand.

Hasbro's Most Definitive Modern Counterpart: 2010's/2019's THE VINTAGE COLLECTION Boba Fett (VC09) figure (for THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK) and 2021's THE VINTAGE COLLECTION Boba Fett (VC186) figure (for RETURN OF THE JEDI).
