Toyguide Update: VC61 Boba Fett (Prototype Armor)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the Boba Fett – Prototype Armor (VC61) mailaway from The Vintage Collection.

PROS: This never-before-offered figure looks striking both on and off the card. Nice paint apps where applicable and uses a great sculpt as a base. Shipping now and in a reinforced shipping mailer.

CONS: Being a kitbashed figure, it’s not entirely accurate in terms of accuracy to the test costume, namely the inclusion of the holster. Another Boba Fett mailaway? Hopefully Hasbro ventures out to other Star Wars characters for the next one. This figure is part of the sequential number system usually reserved for figures available at retail.

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.

Facebook Preview: Proto Armor Boba Fett

Not a follower of our Facebook page? What better time to do so as we’ve added a Facebook Sneak Preview of the Mailaway Prototype Armor Boba Fett (VC61) from the Vintage Collection! Look for the full Toyguide update soon along with the pros and cons (yes, there are some) of this latest release right here at Yakface!

A special thanks to Yakface forum member Yak_Jackoftradze for hooking me up.

UPDATE: Prototype Fett Mailaway Form

Hasbro has made available the Redemption Form for the exclusive Prototype Armor Boba Fett (VC61) online!. Any 5 Star Wars action figure collection UPCs will qualify for this offer. Head to Hasbro.com for the complete details and let’s hope the figures show up on doorsteps in better condition than the previous Mailaway Fett did.

UPDATE: Hasbro must have realized their mistake regarding the UPCs for the Prototype Fett as the website and form now specify the qualifying asst. accepted.

Collect and save the UPC codes of any 5 figures from these Star Wars action figure collections: Vintage (97568 Asst.), Saga Legends (21115 Asst.) or The Clone Wars (94736 Asst.)

So to further clarify, the valid UPCs are from the current Vintage, Saga Legends and Clone Wars collections shipping to stores.

No word yet if orders will be honored for those that already sent in their forms with now non-qualifying UPC.

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.
