Update: Damaged Boba Fetts Galore

Reports are coming in that collectors are receiving the vintage rocket firing Boba Fett… however so far it looks like most people are receiving these in very poor condition. Head on over to the forums to share your thoughts.

Update: Yakreader Jeff wrote in to say he contacted Hasbro Consumer Affairs Division (1-800-327-8264) regarding his damaged Fett. They offered to send him a replacement and a return label for his damaged one. Might be worth a call if you are in the same situation.

Rise of Boba Fett Ultmate Battle Packs Hitting TRU

Although still officially, “unofficial”, we’ve received reports that the exclusive Rise of Boba Fett Ultmate Battle Pack has started hitting Toys”R”Us stores ($99.99) in California and Arizona. Just to recap, this Clone Wars item was initially revealed over at Sandtroopers.com a couple months ago and it includes an all-new, larger Slave I, Boba Fett, Bossk, Mace Windu, R8-B7, Anakin Skywalker and Mace Windu’s Jedi Starfighter.

Jodo Kast (Bounty Hunter) (K-Mart Exclusive)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the K-Mart Exclusive Jodo Kast (Bounty Hunter)

PROS: A major improvement over the first attempt back in 2008. Great detailing on the armor/jumpsuit and the sculpt selection couldn’t have been better.

CONS: None really unless you live in an area without a K-Mart. A bloodied face paint job would have really put this figure over the top. Helmet is a little snug which lends itself to deforming over the head (especially over the nose). Ships with the belt assembled backward but easily correctable if you are an opener.

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

TCW Kul Teska (TRU Exclusive)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the Toys”R”Us Exclusive Clone WarsKul Teska

PROS:Despite its immense size, Hasbro managed to pack all the articulation and sculpted details that we’ve become accustomed to on figures a third of its stature. The unique packaging also sets this figure apart from the basic figure line.

CONS: If you haven’t played the game, I doubt you know who this dude is. The $14.99 price point is a bit high but considering it uses enough plastic to make two and a half figures, I guess it seems about right.
