Since we have rumors of this figure showing up, which one do you think well get? Somebody claimed we would be getting the AOTC/Saga version with the jet pack flames, but does anyone think we might get the VOTC version with more accessories? Discuss.

I believe the latest reports say that the new Fett takes different parts from existing molds. What those parts are, and from what molds they're taken, I don't know.

Hopefully its not with those spread apart legs like the pit of carcoon one.

Fetts a great character. But c'mon man, let's get some NEW figures. Resculpts and re-releases will be the death of Hasbro. That's one of the reasons that my brother and myself got out of it. Oh look another Han/Leia/Vader/Luke.

To a long-time collector, the rehashes can become a bit cumbersome. But ... Hasbro uses these for the kids. Most casual buyers want to see the main characters on the pegs. Hasbro tries to keep those characters available. Remember ... it's the kids of today who will become the collectors of tomorrow.

Minus the whole selling of a product that kills and is illegal to young people. (not counting the accidental choking on a blaster or whatever)

This practice is vital for most companies. The main difference here it that these are sort of supposed to be for kids. That's how they were originally intended. Which is the opposite of tabacco, and most other products. It's like ragging on a company for targeting, and trying to maintain interest among kids in it's line of paciphiers (sp). Maybe you were being glib, and i'm just an idiot for responding.

Maybe something like:
VOTC SA Body
SAGA Boba (TPOC)'s flame stand.
SAGA Jango Fett (Final Battle)'s left arm w/ spring loaded flame thrower.
Repainted SAGA Jango Fett (Kamino Escape)'s Jetpack w/ firing missile, and right arm w/ Fibercord Whip.
Real hair for Wookiee scalps / Padawan braids.
EU Infinities-inspired SAGA Jango Fett (Kamino Escape)'s repainted helmet, w/ newly sculpted Jango head featuring scarred throat and cybernetic eye...

Why not have a fett with removeable helmet? Who cares if he never takes it off in the movie. We know what he's supposed to look like now, thanks to Ep 2.

GNT

I'd go with the pit of Carkoon version that Hasbro released in the Saga/OTC line. Since the TSC bubbles are large enough Hasbro should be able to include the flames or another large accessory.

While it would be nice to see the VOTC version make a return the pit of Carkoon version is more fitting for this wave.

A VOTC with blue jumpsuit and TESB paintjob would be great. Why care for accuracy when we could have a cool repaint?

Anything other than the VOTC sculpt would be a boring choice, IMO.

Boushh
10-06-2005, 08:50 AM
I agree. I hardly think that ANOTHER Boba Fett is worth it. I love most of the figures in this wave, especially the resculpts, but I will not be adding any more Boba Fetts to my collection any time soon. He got 300th and VOTC. Couldn't we have gotten a different character instead? It looks like they did a decent job on him, don't get me wrong. I just don't see the logic in another figure of a character who always looks the same when we have two definitive versions of him already.

I'll get one for my carded collection but I don't see a need to get one to open. Wasn't this supposed to use parts from different Fett figures instead of just a straight rehash of the Saga Carkoon Fett? The only thing that looks different to me is the color of the jumpsuit.

This is my favorite Fett sculpt. The reason Hasbro has been rereleasing this figure is simple - IT SELLS! EVERYONE likes Boba Fett and he is probably one of the top 5 favorite characters in the Saga to most people especially kids.

On a side note - I never realized he had an action feature until you just told me. I really had to search for it too.

Looks like this Fett is giving Cantina Han a run for his money in the "Most Repackaged Figure" category. Cardback looks cool, but I won't be buying it since I've got one of these Fetts already.

Although I wouldn't have said it exactly that way, you have a point.
Not every on-card collector, who buys the same figure in different packaging, complains about it, though.

The VOTC Boba Fett is amazing, followed closely by the POTJ, and then the Saga figure.
I've always been a fan of Boba Fett, but I open everything, so I think I pass on this re-release.

Real_Scooby
10-06-2005, 01:59 PM
Since this is just a repack of the POC Fett, the only reason for me to pick this one, would be IF Hasbro got rid of the action-trigger-missile and replaced it with an accurate one. This and the repainted lighter jumpsuit might make this one a "replacement figure" in my collection.

Maybe add a accurate ROTJ rifle too. Come Hasbro, I customized one already and it looked near perfect.

I hadn't thought about it that way, but if these changes were made, I would probably buy this figure. There's no need for the blast effect on the gun either...

I passed on the OTC version since I already had the Saga version, and after the OTC was all done with I sort of regreted it.

But I'm glad I did because I definitely will be picking this one up. That package is too nice for me not to do so! and the figure looks a bit different too or is just me? (just a bit though- paint or something):p

Nute Gunray, you aren't the only one! I've never really understood the cult obsession with Boba Fett and was less than interested to see another rehash or kitbash (whichever this one truly is...reportedly it was made up of parts of different sculpts of Fett put together) of Boba Fett. I can see the logic from a business standpoint though, because there are tons of Fett fans who will buy this even if it is for no other reason than to have all versions of Fett. I might pick up one because the cards look so good, but if I do, that will be the only reason. For all of those who like the sight of another Fett, enjoy! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I totally agree. It looks like Hasbro had the idea to for Carkoon Han and Fett to be displayed together to recreate the scene where he hits Boba's jetpack and sends him into the pit.

Well based off of this picture from hasbro's site, I'd say it does have the VOTC legs/pelvis, as well as a regular rocket. Did they do away with the action feature? Looks pretty good, especially with the light jumpsuit. Definate buy for me.

The carded sample look really strange. Something about the head, is it for sure the same as the SAGA one? The legs have already been mentioned as VOTC, but overall something seems really squat or stout about this version...

I just opened this figure and I am dissapointed to say that he isn't as cool as I thought he may be.

The action feature remains, its just that the missile is now sculpted to be more accurate, but he still has the floopy arms of the saga version. The other bad part is that his coller hasn't been painted to match the rest of the jumpsuit, so while he is wearing a grey jumpsuit his coller is green like the saga version.

Pretty sloopy figure here.

Is it just me, or is Boba's helmet a little bit off-colour? It's a different shade of green then his chestplate. The sculpt of the helmet also seems to be different from the Saga/OTC PoC Boba Fett. It's fatter and a bit 'squished'. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

I know the legs are from the VotC figure, but what's up with the helmet?
Aside from the helmet, everything is top-notch with this figure however, and it is a definite improvement over the original PoC Fett. It makes me regret the fact I just ordered the OTC Fett for my Jabba's Palace diorama. This one looks much nicer overall.

ROTS threepio is better. the VOTC is pretty bad in sculpt too. and he isnt shiny gold. the lego minifig has more articulation than VOTC...

What do you think of the re-vamped Boba Fett figure? I like how they gave him the VOTC Fett legs and re-did his jetpack, but there is no comparisson with the VOTC Boba Fett. I give Hasbro an A for effort though. It is a decent kitbash figure. If we did not have the VOTC to compare it to, he would be hands down thew best Boba Fett figure made.

How much are the new figures?

I thought I read the price was increasing on basic figures.

Thanks in advance for the info.



i picked them up at walmart last week for $5.88 each, and just got one at target for $5.99 - hopefully they will come down in price like the other lines have.

in the short run, saving $1.11 per figure is not a big deal

in the long run, Target and TRU will have to lower prices in order to compete with WM (as many have said before)

true, but in the long run - 1.11 adds up - especially since we've been used to paying 4.77 at walmart for the ROTS line for awhile now. i quick buy figs at TRU, KB toys and KMart because they never lowered their prices (not that i expected them too). we are paying a full 2 bucks extra right now.

I bought all of them plus doubles of the Bib and Leia (I want Han too but I'll wait till I see him cheaper), and I am really, really liking them.

And if you are a OTC packaging freak like me, you have even more of a reason to really do so. I almost couldn't bring myself to open those extra figures even though they were bought solely for that reason.

They are already hanging with the rest of my OTC collection...been catching myself contemplating them a lot. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Let me be the first to say I love the Colts, I lived in Indiana for a few years (Columbus, about an hour from Greensburg, seven hours from Detroit) but I had the best SW's finds in Columbus. Small town, only me, my brother and my buddy Torrey collected, and the pegs were almost always full of new stuff. The only figure I had problems finding was Leia and Jedi Luke (from POTF2).

About Boba however, its a vast improvement of the original Saga, and like Madonna said, if the VOTC one hadn't come out, this would be the best basic Fett to date.

They did a great kitbash job on this Fett, but why didnt they match the helmet paint job with the rest of the body. You dont really notice with a quick glance, but if really look at the figure it stands out.
(Dont get me wrong, this is a nice figure)

2) Next variation is the 'wheat' symbol on the chest armor is supposed to be on the left side (some report it being on the right side of the armor facing the figure)

They didn't re-release the VOTC Vader yet. The Vader in the Hoth wave is the 500th Vader. Similar to the VOTC ... but not quite the same.

I like the looks of this figure and I can say it's an improvement over the last version. The biggest problem is the arms. Look at the arms of your Saga 1 Fett and then your Saga 2 Fett. Not only does it share the same crappy action feature but there's actually more of a gap between the shoulders on this newer version. The photo archive confirms this.

As an interesting story, for which I'll have to take pics, my Fett had something very insteresting about his flame piece. The flame piece is supposed to have a flat bottom however, mine slants towards the back. It's a bad mold pull and it's really noticable.

Why not have a fett with removeable helmet? Who cares if he never takes it off in the movie. We know what he's supposed to look like now, thanks to Ep 2.


But he was an unalterd clone. That means he did not nessesary ned to end up with the same face as Jango ore rest of the clones.




correction: he was a clone of jango. he would look the same. the term "unaltered" referred to the growth acceleration.

Genetics is far from the only factor that determines what one looks like. Evironment can contribute greatly. We do not know what Boba Fett looked like as an adult. But maybe we'll find out in the live action TV series....

Back on the topic of the Boba #06 of Carkoon - very awesome figure, I've bought almost every one I've seen so far. Not only for the great jetpack and flames that come with it but also the articulation. I think it's a nice figure. And they work awesome as Mandalorian warriors if you change the paint app just a little each fig and give them battle damage in dif. places.

I got this yesterday and thought that it looks pretty nice carded, but since the only Fett I had was buff-Fett from POTF2, I opened this. It would have been nice if it would have been VOTC repack, but this figure might have been okay if the shoulders weren't so loose and if they had removed action f(r)ea(k)ture.

I have heard of this so much (neck painted and unpainted)
that I dont think its an error. I think its a variation.
(meaning that they werent painting the neck at first, and
then they were told to start painting the necks).

Also, there is a cardback variation on this fig too. The
big difference being the color around the hologram (red or
blue)

And if you figure in the bubble-packaging variations
[flames in front or back], and the different holograms,
the FETT focus-eers are having a nightmare with this one.

Every time Isee my cared figure, I think it looks really worth opening. But possibility sucks, arms bounce around, horrible paintjob. just sucks. And the arms and legs(on the original) are a little too similar to the 300th figure. The only thing that saves this thing is the flame stand. Hasbro (censored) you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I finally got one of these to open, and I must say he is the best version I personally have of Boba. The other 2 I have are Saga and POTF2.

What an improvement a leg swap can have on a mediocre figure. Now he's like "really good" as opposed to the Saga version, which was "okay". IMO of course.

I don't have the 300th or VOTC versions so this one works very nicely. Love the new legs and paint on this one.
