The Book of Boba Fett

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,112: Tusken Chieftan (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 29, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Tusken Chieftan (The Black Series). He uses parts of the old Tusken Raider from about seven years ago, but most of what you'll actually see are new parts, with new robes, and some decent paint.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,108: Tusken Raider (Dark Robes and Stripes, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 15, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Tusken Raider (Dark Robes and Stripes, The Vintage Collection). Sometimes new deco is all you need to refresh a character, and I love having new guys to build out this group. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,107: Cad Bane (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 13, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Cad Bane (The Black Series). This is the one from The Book of Boba Fett, so there are a lot of differences between him and The Clone Wars' "live action" figure from a few years ago. For example, there are no rocket boots... but it's still a blue Duro in a hat and a duster, so to a lot of fans it's not obvious that it's a completely new sculpt. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,103: Pyke Soldier (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 30, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Pyke Soldier (The Black Series). It's like the stock photo got turned into a toy, with an extra blaster and no special features. It's decent, and meets modern fan expectations for the scale. Read on!

Also, a new Transformers HasLab is live now - and it's over 25% funded in the first hour. There's a decent proposition for what you get, and how big the robots are relative to other toys in the marketplace.

ICYMI: Hasbro Pulse Has Star Wars The Vintage Collection Boba Fett’s Throne Room In Stock

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 26, 2024

I was talking with a friend over email and it came up that nobody was talking about the Star Wars The Vintage Collection Boba Fett’s Throne Room, which came out last September and Hasbro Pulse has in stock right now for $229.99.   I took some pictures of it for our Tumblr as well, outfitting it with various aliens from Return of the Jedi over the last 46 years of toys.

It's a pretty good piece.  I haven't opened up all of the accessories still, mostly because I was less interested in setting up The Book of Boba Fett gear.  Why? Not enough figures.  Hasbro delivered a really excellent multi-purpose playset that can be used with either that show or Return of the Jedi, but as they didn't deliver many of the lesser members of Boba Fett's entourage... why would you want a $230 playset to sit empty?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,101: Boba Fett (Dune Sea, The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 23, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Boba Fett (Dune Sea, The Retro Collection). Some online shops (like Entertainment Earth) are shipping out this wave but I haven't seen any in stores yet. If you do see them, you should get them - Boba has a good head sculpt, excellent Jawa-esque robes, and two really nice accessories to boot. I went and got my The Vintage Collection Boba Fett's Spaceship (or whatever it's called this week) when I cracked him open and had myself a pretty good time in the cargo hold, but he's too big to fit in the pilot seat.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,077: Cad Bane (The Book of Boba Fett, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 31, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Cad Bane (The Book of Boba Fett, The Vintage Collection). I like this one - aliens in hats are not common in any action figure line, so a new version of a live-action take on everybody's favorite blue cowboy alien bounty hunter is pretty welcome. The joints are good, the deco is good, the sculpt is nice, and the price still kind of stings a bit. But it's a very nice figure. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,076: Krrsantan (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 26, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Krrsantan (The Black Series). This is a perfectly nice basic figure, but it's priced as a deluxe - he's shorter than Chewbacca and has a similar accessory count, but it would seem the most popular characters are getting pulled aside for a wider box with more empty space in it with a higher price. But the sculpt is good, the articulation is well-engineered, and he has the minimum amount of accessories that you need to say "OK, he looks cool on my desk" while the smaller one has six hands and way too much gear for almost the same price. It's an increasingly bizarre line, ad a basic Kenner-style one is due shortly.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,061: Tuken Chieftan (Tusken Raiders, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 5, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Tuken Chieftan (Tusken Raiders, The Vintage Collection). He's from the boxed set! And he's pretty decent, but not perfect - peak "that'll do" as figures go, complete with a nice staff. Read on!

SDCC 2023 Preview Night: Adam's Snapshots from Hasbro

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, July 23, 2023

Crossposted from 16bit.com! I loves me some Star Wars. 3 3/4-inch figures are best, especially the retro ones. Hasbro had The Book of Boba Fett wave of The Retro Collection online with Boba Fett, a Tusken Raider, Cad Bane, Luke Skywalker (black robe and no blaster), Grogu, Mando, Fennec Shand, and Tusken Boba. It's a nice selection.

The Boba/Jabba/Bib throne room was on display, as were tons of lightsabers and other recent reveals. Even some Ahsoka toys were there, including a swell hat, a lightsaber, and a Chopper droid toy. You may have seen a few of these before, or not - the Mission Fleet sets were, I think, at least partially new.

Hasbro Star Wars SDCC and PulseCon Figures Revealed

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 12, 2023

We had two reveals today. One (pictured) is Collider's 'The Book of Boba Fett's Black Krrsantan Heads to SDCC With Epic New Hasbro Figure [Exclusive], a $40 variant of a $28 pre-order you forgot you made already. Pre-order QR codes will be distributed at San Diego Comic-Con International next week. It is worth noting the variant has an alternate head, so you may want both versions or you may be perfectly happy with the cheaper (and I think better-looking) closed-mouth main line version. The pre-order for the standard release shows a lot of those accessories, so unless someone made an error the plussed-up more-expensive edition may not even be worth your while.

The other is Fandom's reveal of Starkiller Strikes in New Force Unleashed Star Wars The Black Series Figure Set, a $110.99 set that gives you two figures you got for around $19.99 in 2020 and one new figure. This one is slated for Hasbro's PulseCon event, which usually is a pre-recorded showing of new stuff over a weekend in September.

Hasbro Technically Reveals The Book of Boba Fett Luke Skywalker from The Retro Collection

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 11, 2023

Sometimes Dr. Zaius is right - you might not like what you find. Gamespot posted a reveal of Book Of Boba Fett's Luke Skywalker Gets Star Wars Retro Figure without acknowledging that they didn't. It is, in fact, a repack of the reissue of Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) from Kenner way back in 1983. It's a packaging variant for what I assume will be a popular figure with lots of demand, so that's good - but he doesn't have Luke's new shirt or boots. It's the same old thing.  Some pictures show a brown cloak, and some show black, so it's possible you might get a new black cloak here.

It's not even just different enough to make you mad - it's a real Kenner-style package logo/photo variation.  I should have seen it coming - it's a good economical idea for a business, less so for those of us who were hoping we might get the first post-trilogy Kenner-style Luke figure we've been wanting since the 1980s.

The review of the Return of the Jedi reissue - seemingly identical and shipping now - will be posted here on Thursday. (It's good.)

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,018: Boba Fett (Tython/Boba Fett's Starship, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 6, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Boba Fett (Tython/Boba Fett's Starship, The Vintage Collection). It's presently exclusive as a pack-in to a very expensive $200 Boba Fett's Starship re-re-repaint. (Previously the vehicle has been exclusive to Toys R Us in Jango deco, Amazon in Boba Deco, and a shared Fan Channel ESB deco - and this is the Book of Boba Fett flavor.) It's a perfectly nice figure, but at $200 for just a ship repaint and a figure you're probably going to feel this wasn't the best value in the toy store. Read on!
