The figure itself is your basic space cowboy. Marshall Handsome of Mos Pelgo has nice hair and photoreal paint, a bit glossier than I'd like but it still looks good. The armor is nicely abused, with awesome boots and nice pants. Everything moves well, with legs that can swing forward and joints that are stiff, but not ratchety. The engineering here is great. The arms move nicely, but the elbow bend isn't as deep as some other recent figures - they stop at about 90 degrees. Still, it doesn't stop him from looking awesome, posing well, and generally looking like the armor's a part of the character. Even though there are gleefully awkward bits like the turtleneck popping out of the armor, it all fits as a guy who found something cool in the dumpster and went for it.
I really like this figure - it immediately clicked with me just because it was awesome. I love that they managed to do something wholly weird to sell you a Boba Fett that's not Boba Fett, and give us a new character, and put in a good actor, and generally remix everything without talking down to us. Get this one if you can. Pay whatever's reasonable. I look forward to Hasbro hopefully doing a de-armored version later... but especially a 3 3/4-inch one, please, and thank you.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
