Compare this Boba Fett figure
This Boba Fett figure was released in 2009 together with Protocol Droid BL-17 as a Walmart exclusive. The figure is based on Boba's appearance in the 1978 Holiday Special cartoon and the 1985 animated Star Wars: Droids TV series. The figure is a re-release of the Holiday Special Boba Fett figure from 2007's Anniversary Collection.
Compared with the TAC release- there are some very minor differences in the helmet's paint application- but unless you are looking for those with a magnifying glass- you won't notice them. While the figure is identical- the weapons are not. Instead of an Electropole- Hasbro included Boba's typical blaster rifle. The basic blaster is also different from the previous release.
The figure is super articulated with 14 joints- and thanks to ball-jointed knees and ankles- you can adjust the position so that the figure stands securely on it's own without the need for additional support. There are some slight intentional scratches on his armor- but mostly the figure is kept in a clean appearance. The paint application overall is applied nicely- be it on the jet pack- the weapons- the black stripes on his shoes- or helmet. Boba's helmet by the way is not removable. The weapons fit well into his hands- and the blaster fits nicely into Boba's non-removable holster. The Jet-pack plugs firmly into the back of the figure and you don't have to worry about it falling out every time you reposition the figure.
All things considered- if you already own the previously released version of this Bounty Hunter you can pass on this release. If you don't own it yet- you might want to pick it up because it's fantastic. You will find that Hasbro has paid a lot of attention to details on this Boba Fett figure which they don't do with every figure. The soft goods cape- the cables running from his right arm into the suit- or the scalps from his enemies hanging over his right shoulder- 14 joints- two weapons- a jetpack and a cool paint job should please fans and collectors alike! Is it 100% accurate and true to the Droids TV show? No- but it's close enough and a cool figure nonetheless.
In the animated television series Star Wars: Droids - The Adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO- Boba Fett acquires BL-17- a Battle Legionnaire battle droid created to serve Mandalorian Protectors during the Clone Wars. The bounty hunter uses the droid on espionage missions while hunting fugitives.
