This Boba Fett action figure was released during the Legacy Collection's basic line-up in October/November 2009 and is a repaint of a previously released Boba Fett figure from 2007's The Anniversary Collection. The Bounty Hunter has been featured in countless Star Wars stories, but his most memorable appearance can be seen in The Empire Strikes Back.
Boba has a total of 14 joints, which will give you enough freedom to pose him in almost any position you want. The figure stands securely without the need of a stand, but it does have the typical peg holes in the feet if you'd like to use one. The blaster rifle and the blaster fit well into the right and left hand, respectively. The blaster can also be placed into a holster which is located on back of the figure's belt. Boba Fett's helmet is a tight fit, but when placed correctly onto the head it'll cover it nicely. The range finder on the helmet is not movable. The jet pack can be plugged into a hole on the back of the figure where it sits firmly attached. The soft goods cape hanging over the figure's left shoulder is not removable.
The sculpt of the figure is extremly well done, including Boba Fett's pouches on the belt, scuffs on the armor, the scars on the face and lots of details on both arms. What Hasbro did really well however is the paint application. Even very small details like Boba's knuckles on both gloves are painted cleanly, or the very small silver buttons on the under arms are spot on. The paint job is also slightly different from the previously released figure with some darker colors overall. All in all, this Boba Fett figure is fantastic all the way, it's super articulated, and very detailed. If you don't already own the previously released Boba Fett you might want to look into adding this version of the famous Bounty Hunter to your collection.
