A good Boba!

Hi, I think Hasbro should rehash the VOTC Boba Fett, I havent gotten it but it looks great!
Super Articulation instead of the carkoon Boba.

I wouldn't disagree with this at all.  While I believe the Saga 06 Boba is a so-so compromise (definitely an improvement over the POC Fett's pre-posed legs, so that's a plus), I think it's tough to beat the VOTC Fett in quality.  Short of (no pun) his height maybe being a little off, he's a figure I'd gladly buy in an ESB Deco and even if they reworked the figure a little to make a Holiday Special paintjob Fett. 

That'd be cool by me.

I'd definately like a VOTC class Fett at a $5 price range.

VOTC you mean?  Not really, they're gone from retail in most areas.  Made brief appearances at closeout places like Family Dollar (I got a couple commons there) and some place called Tuesday Morning but that's it.

Lando's abound at many TRU's here though...  I hear Yoda and Lando are common elsewhere but I've not heard any other VOTC lingering anywhere else.

just think if they used the 300th's boba's detailing combined with the flexibility/playability of  the VOTC one :P

At local Zellers there are tons of Lobots!
And I think a couple of cloud car pilots.

I think the VOTC Boba is teh best to date and would gladly buy another of him in a different DECO. Heck they could practically make a Jango from this mold.

One change I'd like is a removeable helmet, like the Titanium one. It's not neccessarily needed, but that would make a great VTSC fig.
