In a scenario where money is no object, it's a pretty good figure - we get a repaint with some extra comic-like black ink on it that, I have to admit, is pretty spiffy. Previous comic figures played mostly with comic-inspired colors, with a few - very few - like Darth Vader from the Comic Packs [FOTD #936] really leaning in to "blue is black" newsprint colors. (I love it. I'd buy a The Black Series Vader in those colors if it was $25 or under.) This Boba Fett might have also better served the large-format figure, especially at $25-$27, mostly so you can really enjoy the shading on his right-hand sides. The belt, chest, helmet, and knee pads have some dark shadows, while the figure has a yellow belt to match his shoulder and knee pads. The gauntlets and helmet match the green chest armor, with a bright blue body that's little more saturated than the Kenner colors. Meanwhile, his jetpack seems to be not entirely unlike the Kenner one with the dark blue on the outside and a core brighter blue color up the middle, except with a green rocket.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Target. I was charged $22.99 for my pre-order from December 2022, but in-stock orders seem to be $20.99. Maybe you should wait for exclusives now.
