MORE INFORMATION

  • This Walgreens exclusive six inch scale Boba Fett (Prototype Armor) was released individually boxed
  • The figure is a repainted version of the regular released Boba Fett figure
  • This is unfortunate - because it makes this figure quite inaccurate when compared to the original source material
  • Boba's helmet is not removable
  • The range-finder on the helmet is static
  • The jetpack plugs nicely into a hole in the back of the figure
  • The rocket in the jetpack is not removable
  • The soft-goods cape - the chest armor - the belt and the pouches are not removable
  • The figure is able to hold the two weapons beautifully in both hands (with patience the index finger can be placed onto the trigger - which looks great)
  • The basic blaster fits well into the holster
  • The Boba Fett figure reviewed here had stiff joints - which allowed for it to be displayed in more dynamic battle poses

How close is this figure compared to the actual Prototype Armor?

  • The blasters are inaccuarte when compared to the Prototype Armor Boba Fett (a detail Hasbro got right on the 3 3/4inch Prototype Armor Boba Fett figure)
  • The holster is completely wrong
  • The cape is wrong (they used a Star Wars beach towel on the Prototype armor)
  • The rocket is missing the "spikes"
  • Hasbro took a lot of liberty when painting this figure - the jetpack and the gauntlets on both arms have for the most part the wrong details highlighted
  • The Prototype Armor Boba Fett didn't have Wookiee braids hanging over the shoulder
  • It's unfortunate that Hasbro took so many shortcuts on such a beloved costume
  • There is currently a video available on StarWars.com - which shows the prototype armor quite beautifully: http://www.starwars.com/watch/meet_boba_fett.html
  • Despite a lot of inaccuracies when compared to the original Prototype Armor - there is just something extremely cool about this white Boba Fett figure!

PACKAGING TEXT

Before he put on the familiar mandalroian armor from the Star Wars Saga, this notorious bounty hunter was initially envisioned as a "Super Trooper" in all-white armor. This special figure captures the beginning of a character that has become a legend who is both respected and feared across the galaxy ... Boba Fett.
