This toy - heck, many of the toys - stretch the limits of what it means to be an all-in fans. How minor a variation will keep you going, now that you know there are at least five more movies on the horizon plus potential anniversary lines, new TV shows, or game figures? This is a keeper for fans of future kitsch, and all-in Boba fans. Those of you looking for a place to cut corners, you could start here - but of all the Armor Up figures, this one captures the wackier aspects of "off-camera" toys better than most. I wish it did something, but the way it remixes elements of Boba Fett's gear is gleefully 1980sish. It disgusts me how amusing I find it, I know it's terrible but it might be my favorite from the assortment. It's a shame they didn't change Boba's deco to a different armor suit so I could easily recommend it to everybody as being genuinely different, rather than just being a very expensive ticket to a new accessory you might not even want.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
