Toyguide Update: SL09 Boba Fett

SL09_Fett_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with our next entry in the 3-3/4″ Saga Legends line. Today we take a look at the first figure from Wave 2: Boba Fett (SL09).

PROS: Despite its lack of collector-grade articulation, the overall sculpt and deco for Fett is exemplary. The style is very much in keeping with the Vintage era while being more screen accurate. This series of figures is targeted toward the younger (or less demanding) collector and it fulfills the role nicely as he’s easy to stand for display, fits in most vehicles and the jetpack stays in place without any fiddling. Relatively cheap considering the cost of more premium action figures.

CONS: Surprisingly, Hasbro didn’t reuse the 5 POA mold from the Bespin Battle battle pack from 2012 which would have been a way to save some ever-increasing tooling costs. Some collectors will undoubtedly hate it, while others will embrace its simplicity and low price point. I, myself, am one of the latter.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.

You can also weigh in with your impressions on the figures we add to our toyguide on facebook and in our forums.

    I got this figure today. I was surprised the blaster and backpack are a brand new sculpt. Not bad for a 5 point figure. The proportions look about right and the paintwork on mine is tight- though the lack of paint detail on the gauntlets is disappointing. I feel if one would combine elements of the 300th Fett, the VOTC Fett, the Bespin 3 pack Fett, and this one – then you would have the ultimate 3 3/4″ Fett. As it stands they all fall short.
