Toyguide Update: Mei Sho Movie Realization Ronin Boba Fett

toyguide_ronin_fett_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today as we take a look at the Mei Sho Movie Realization Ronin Boba Fett figure* from Bandai/Tamashii Nations.

PROS: If you are looking for an ornately sculpted and painted piece in the 1:12/6″ scale line, you’d be hard pressed to find anything better than Bandai’s Mei Sho Movie Realization figures. The intricacy of the sculpts and precision in the articulation result in a truly museum-quality collectible that you can actually handle repeatedly without fear of breaking the figure (or wallet) as you might with Sideshow and/or Hot Toys products. The Ronin Boba Fett is a unique and “real world” interpretation of the iconic bounty hunter with a feudal Japanese/Samurai aesthetic. It is loaded not only with attitude, but accessories as well like throwing knives, a sword, and a re-imagined EE-3 rifle and jet pack. In total, this figure is a must-own for fans of the style, scale and Boba Fett alike.

CONS: These figures aren’t for your everyday collector due to the price and niche style. The various hands for the figure can be difficult to switch out, let alone be “massaged” enough to hold the weapons. As Obi-Wan said,  “patience” is the key here – don’t try to force anything.

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