New pictures have surfaced of a Movie heroes Boba Fett with firing backpack, thoughts on this figure?

I guess they could have saved tooling costs by simply using POTJ 200th Figure Boba Fett's / SAGA Kamino Escape Jango Fett's missile firing jetpack instead and perhaps included the exhaust flame base from the SAGA Pit of Carkoon Boba.
They could have also exchanged the arms with the Legacy TESB sculpt and repainted this VOTC sculpt accordingly to that movie's outfit color scheme, thus giving us the first non-removable helmet SA TESB Boba ever.

Oh well.

Honestly as much as I like the character, I'm simply done buying figures of him.
The latest version is just fine with me.

It looks like the same figure with a new grappling hook backpack accessory - kind of like the MH snowspeeder Luke.

I don't need any either at this point. If they added bj hips or Jeremy Bulloch's head, then I'd be all over one. However, it's nice to see Boba instead of another character that we really don't need.

I was using my iPhone, the autocorrect changed it. It has been fixed back to what it once was.

You should tell Mac that Boba Fett should be highest in priority in auto correct. Even though I have relatives named Bob it would be worth it to us, as well as countless others, to see Boba Fett's name every time we try to type Bob. And for those who neglect to check their auto correct, there will be countless Bobs in the world who think it is awesome to be unintentionally called Boba Fett.

I know that we seem to be constantly slating the Movie Heroes line lately, even if it is for kids.

But I would much, much, much rather see a slightly retooled Boba Fett, even if it has less articulation, than just a straight up Saga Legend repack. I know MH has its fair share of repacks too, but at least there is some SLIGHTLY new stuff on offer, too.

They have a ton of Fetts they could use and if MH continues for a few years, we might see a number of versions of him.

Couple of questions on this one...

Where the heck is his range finder?

Why is his cape on the wrong side???

If those two issues are fixed on the production figure, I may pick one up. The idea of the grappling hook rocket is cool, kind of a throw back to the Vintage 12" figure / some of the concept art.

In one image somewhere I saw the range finder. The cape is on the right side but got pushed over in that shot.

The figure is acceptable. I'll pick one up to keep on the card and one for my son to open.

Yay! Another complete waste of peg space at retail.

Keep it up, Hasbro. You're killing the Star Wars market just a little bit more every year.

I don't know whether I'm in the minority here or not, but I actually like this figure, seeing that it appears to be decently articulated; unlike some of the previous MH stuff we've seen so far with the likes of the non light-up Vader, the Wave 1 Maul and the ancient Grievous & Yoda. Also since there is some customizing potential for this figure.

I'm in the minority with you! We'll call ourselves "Team Minority"!! I agree it's like a throw-back to the 12" Kenner Boba Fett. Hoping that the backpack fits just like the VOTC backpack did.

Since it doesn't appear to have a removable helmet, maybe I'll pick up one or two to customize some Mandalorians.

Yeah it looks like it is simply the ROTJ VOTC Boba Fett with a different backpack. Seeing as how I don't have a ROTJ VOTC Boba Fett anymore, I'll be looking forward to this figure.

Well, ok you're right, but it's better than another Battle Droid, right?

These are only available overseas. I'm not paying $80 for a repack with "new features". With the newly announced Wave 1 2013 Assortment they added the Sandtrooper, Anakin Light up and Battle Droid (this time in maroon) but not Boba. UGH. Does anyone know if this will be added in later 2013 waves?

I'm surprised its being sold on the blue card still, dispite all the others being in the 2013 Green yoda wave.

I did find the 'Wave 3' Hasbro were talking about at toyfair, with Light up Vader and Harpoon Luke. This was in Bristol UK last month.

^ Hmmm... I guess I *should* buy some of the ones available over here as future investments then. :hmm:

Picked one up for a Scummer last week and even though I already have an extra 2004 vintage ROTJ Boba Fett still sealed on card, I was tempted to buy him just for the neat-looking action feature.

Thats me!!!
Massive thank you to Matthias for hooking me up on MH Fett.....(and Anakin)....,

With TOY PALACE cancelling the pre-orders on the case containing the last 4 movie heroes on the Maul cardback,you can see the scramble and subsequent bloodbath on Ebay...

way to go again,Hasbro.....screw the loyal fan base that actually DID buy the other 19 movie heroes(including the LAME repacks)and then make the last 4(that were new!!)impossible to get!!

Hasbro-"WE REALLY DON'T CARE!!!".......fact!!

Glad to hear you got it. Did you want it for the packaging or to open? If to open, what's different besides the backpack?

Hey Damian.....

Yeah Matthias hooked me up....I'm absolutely delighted that my fellow Scummers are so considerate and understanding of this sickness of completism......

i have no idea how different Boba backpack is....but when Toy Palace pulled the plug on pre-orders I had a premonition that the ensuing ebay BLOODBATH would be nasty....

With many hitting the $100 dollar/€60 Euro mark it would appear the seemingly small quantities of these has galvanised the completists into shock and awe!!!(kill or be killed!!!)

With nothing actually being super rare nowadays it may be more appear at clearance outlets down the line. However these could turn out to be highly desirable(unlike wave one)and are yet another example of a Hasbro WTF? moment....
Hasbro team member"you know those Movie Hero repacks that are clogging shelves worldwide??"
DDP"Yeah??"
Hasbro team member"well....lets limit the new sculpts that the collectors actually want to insanely small numbers and send them to Germany,Austria and the Czech Republic"
DDP"that will teach them for not buying the MTT!!"
Hasbro team member".....I love you,Mr Depriest!!!"
DDP"please call me Derryl!!!".....

It's absolutely unaceptable that Hasbro has not made this cool Boba Fett version available here in the New World!!!
I can understand the completists upset and this is nothing short of an outrage.
