What I'm not crazy about is that even with the improved elbow and arm articulation, and that awesome Hammer pants joint in the knees, the figure is a bit of a challenge to hand a rifle and pose with two hands. He can do it, but it's not simple. I realize some people really do enjoy the process of fussing with a figure to get that perfect center of gravity to ensure their miniature replica from a movie is absolutely perfect, but I came into Star Wars as a child and love picking a guy up, handing him an accessory, putting him down, and having a little fun. But, this is a collector figure - kids don't get a lot of figures anymore. I assume kids might dig this one because it is incredibly cool, and had Hasbro put out a ship or a throne or some other add-on for display or play, I bet people would be very motivated to buy some more toys for Boba the Fett here.
I've been starting to trim back on my 6-inch purchases not because I don't like them, but because there's just not a lot of action to have with these figures. (Vehicles, playsets.) I'm having a great time with the 3 3/4-inch guys, but as a figure to pose on your desk and generally fuss with, if you can swallow the premium pricing, Boba Fett has a lot of fun to offer. You can take off his helmet, the rocket comes out and you can pretend to "shoot" it, the alternate sidearm is a nice bonus, and if you had a throne you could have him throw Bib Fortuna's corpse out of it. I really like the whole "I'm going to throw the armor over my Tusken pants" look, and of the many revised Boba Fett costumes we saw used in 2020 and 2021, this is my favorite. I am unsure it's going to be worth the upcharge, but it's Boba Fett, so it will likely sell well and it definitely looks cool. Get it if you like the price.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
