“The Hot Toys Boba Fett (Deluxe Version) is a must-have for the fans of the character because it comes with a great number of accessories and an amazing Temuera Morrison headsculpt!”
The first Hot Toys Boba Fett figures from The Mandalorian were recently released in Hong Kong and are now starting to ship for international fans. Hot Toys is giving collectors all the Boba Fett goodness as they not only made one but a two-pack! The basic version only contains the battle-damaged armored Boba Fett figure while the deluxe version also comes with Boba Fett in his Tusken outfit. And that’s not it, there will also be a third Boba figure later this year with his throne!
It’s your usual Star Wars collectibles design except it’s a big one as there are two figures inside. It’s roughly as large as two normal boxes. You have a promotional picture of each figure at the front with the Star Wars logo. Plus, you have the usual colored strip, for The Mandalorian figures, it’s an orange/brownish one. The colored strip features another picture of the figure at the front and one on the side. And since I’m reviewing the deluxe version, there is a deluxe version sticker on the box. Finally, when you remove the first part of the box you have the usual promotional picture.
Since it’s a deluxe version that comes with two figures, you have a lot of accessories! There are eleven interchangeable hands (that can be used for both figures), a Gaffi stick, a cycler rifle, two identical blaster pistols (one for each figure), a jetpack, two thrusters effects, a rocket for the jetpack, a rocket launcher effect, a flamethrower effect, two missile launchers effects for the knee armor, and additional knee armor, a Jango Fett hologram, a chain code hologram, and two display bases.
The two display bases we get here are exactly the type of display bases that I love – bases that represent environments. Here it represents the environment from Typhon so they sculpted some rocks and grass. And it’s two different bases, that’s cool! These are my favorite display bases of figures from The Mandalorian. One comes with a crotch grabber stand and the other with a dynamic stand. It’s a nice change from the usual sandy bases with footprints that we got with many figures from The Mandalorian.
The weapons are nicely detailed. For the blaster pistols, Hot Toys used different shades of grey for the metallic paint and some wood color for the handle. Plus they added some weathering on them. Then you have the Gaffi stick. For the upper part, they used metallic paint with a little rust effect, it looks great! And for the rest, they used a wood color. The ropes can be used to attach the Gaffi to the rifle when you want the figure to carry on the back both weapons. As for the cycler rifle is not the same that you get with the Tusken raider, there are some changes mostly in terms of colors and they added some golden pieces as well. The way it’s painted feels like a more elegant weapon than your usual cycler rifle. And the bandolier is made of pleather.
I have to mention the Jango Fett hologram! I find this so cool to have included with this figure! It makes me wonder whether Favreau had planned a scene showing a hologram of Boba’s father or if it was just Hot Toys’ idea. Speaking of holograms, for the chain code they sculpted each letter, I haven’t checked if it’s exactly how it is in the series but it likely is.
It’s hard to believe for me that I actually bought two Boba Fett figures, well, three cause I have on pre-order the deluxe version of the second Boba Fett figure from The Mandalorian with the throne. If you follow me on Twitter, you know that before The Mandalorian I wasn’t a fan of Boba Fett in the Original Trilogy. I liked him in the Prequels though. But I was a fan of Jango Fett. When Boba returned in The Mandalorian, that’s the moment I became a fan of the character. Jon Favreau has been able to write the character compellingly and Temuera Morrison playing him also has a lot to do with me loving the character now! Developing a character makes all the difference.
But now let’s talk about the figures. Essentially, the suit is the same for both figures except one has armor while the other has a coat and additional pleather bandolier. So since it’s all fabric, in terms of articulation you won’t have to worry about damaging your figure over time. You can get some awesome action poses!
I love this costume for Boba Fett, the black suits him! And now that we know the meaning of this black outfit thanks to The Book of Boba Fett, I love it even more so! I’m really glad they released this two-pack! They have done a phenomenal job on the armored figure. They carefully recreated the battle-damaged armor with a lot of paint chips. It really feels damaged! And the way it’s made doesn’t limit the articulation. I was a bit worried about the cables on the arm, I don’t think it’s going to be a problem.
The headsculpt was made by Yulli Choi and painted by JC Hong. And it’s absolutely amazing. For me, it’s one of the best Star Wars head sculpts made by Hot Toys. They perfectly captured the likeness of Temuera Morrison. All the scars are there, it’s so life-like. Yulli proved once again why she is my favorite Hot Toys sculptor.
This is a brilliant deluxe version because you get two Boba Fett figures! It’s a must-have for the fans of the character as it comes with a great number of accessories and an amazing Temuera Morrison headsculpt!
