Link? I'm interested in reading their reporting.
I totally agree. Best helmet sculpt by far! The overall body proportions seem to be almost movie like! Right down to his stance. Since my beloved super articulated 3.75 line is not what i used it be, Iv'e been collecting the 5 POA for my son and I. It seems that hasbro has struggled w the likeneses of FETT, VADER, and STORMTROOPERS (among others) for TOO long. we finally got an EXCELLENT stormtrooper w the ROGUE ONE line and a much improved Vader as well. I actually prefer to use the Boba Fett from one of the original two 5 poa 3 packs made available. there was the Bespin themed one w Luke, Vader, & Fett. And Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, & Maul. It seemed that Hasbro was testing the waters w these packs at the time. ( I believe it was 2012). I remember the slightly pre posed sculpts were pretty incredible given they were given only 5 POA. The Boba Fett was a little tall, but compared to his successor, FAR SUPERIOR in terms of sheer aesthetics (imho) of course. Now we are getting an ALL NEW Fett and Bespin Han and I for one am elated! Ever since super articulated 3 3/4 collecting has gotten near non existent, I have been ACTIVELY (pay attention HASBRO) pursuing the HOT TOYS 1/6 collection. (This is mostly where my collecting dollars are going). I happen to be an owner of the Hot Toys Deluxe Boba Fett. Of all of the 21 Hot Toys figs I have acquired thus far, I am in least happy w the Boba Fett. Mainly the HELMET SCULPT. Even Hot Toys Ingnored the flared mandible shape of the bounty hunter's helmet.Screen accurate). IN some ways it is one of the most lovingly crafted Boba Fett collectibles ever produced, but I CANNOT believe how far they missed the mark on his helmet design! - Funny how Hasbro NAILED this 4 inch figure head to toe (from whats been shown)! Can't wait to pick this up! (several) to customize my 3 3/4 figures! Kudos on this one Hasbro!Looks to be the best Fett helmet sculpt to date. Shame it's 5POA. I may pick one up loose on ebay someday to cannibalize the helmet for my SA Fett.
I agree, the pose is somewhat reminiscent of this classic promo image:I mean of it's 5POA from now on at least they gave him a little personality in his stance. A lot of the the POTF2 stuff was 5POA but sculpted in a way that made their default poses natural. Much prefer it to the characters having straight arms and legs.
As soon as I saw this that was my first thought. The SA Fett with the removable helmet looks a lot better with the SL Rebels 5poa head. This new one looks even better, plus it looks like it has a ball neck. The SL head requires some custom work.Looks to be the best Fett helmet sculpt to date. Shame it's 5POA.

These look awesome! Are they all VC09? Definitely my favorite Fett body sculpt but I hate the removable helmet. Which helmet did you use, and was there any repainting involved?

Yep, makes perfect sense to have a Male character's figure sculpted with a female pose. More please!Sculpting the figure with that stance is a great idea - similar to what they did with Sabine. Going forward, I hope it continues, as it gives each character a bit more personality.
It looks like that, but not exactly. Just did a quick comparison. The legs have the same stance and most of the folds and wrinkles are the same, but the belt, the straps for the holster and everything above the waist is different. But good eye for noticing the pantsPretty sure it's the TFA Han with a different jacket vest piece and new head.
