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.
