Definitely what I though above! I just saw the pics and, though he looks sweet as all get out, it does seem that he is being "pulled in" as apposed to escapeing. The thing I noticed was his left hand/arm as it is posed in a grasping manner that im plies, well, GRASPING. ;) I would have preferred something a little less drastric however, perhaps just having him in a flying position with his blaster at the ready like the 3 3/4" version. This version just seems kinda cluttered with all the tenticles and teeth, but maybe I'll have different feelings when I see him up close and personal. Still cool though and well, very Unleashed. ;)

I am 10% positive that this is Boba Fett as he will appear in the DVD release of ROTJ.
Post sober.

How a bout a Sarlacc Unleashed. This creature would be cool with all those tentacles & teeth.

Dale, they're already making a Sarlacc with Boba Fett falling into it.  There's a post about that posted here.

I know, but what about the Sarlacc creature by it self without Boba Fett.

More detail on the Sarlacc just like the picture I posted.
Would be cool with that head with it's mouth wide open like that & it's tongue lurking for a meal.

The Sarlacc with Boba Fett is based on more of Boba Fett than the Sarlacc creature it's self.

i haven't seen any of the '03 figures, but that unleashed Boba Fett, will have to be mine, no matter what.
i even predicted to my friend it would be of him in or escaping the sarlaac.  :)

Hmmm, the first expanded universe Unleashed character.  Well, not really an EU character but EU moment I suppose.

8th E.U. moment actually.

These are all E.U. figures in a sense.

Anakin never had two lightsabers, cutting down droids.

Leia never stood at the hull of Jabba's Barge.

Jango never had Boba at his side, firing.

Darth Maul was never a ballerina.

Vader was never unmasked in Bespin.

Padme was never atop the Geonosian torture column w/ a blaster.

Mace's cloak was never engulfed in flames.

Dooku..I dunno..he's iffy because of interchangeable hands.

These are all "fantasy" or "artists renditions" figures, so none of them are 100% official.

Very true Cory.  Good point.

But I think what Brian and myself were suggesting as far as this being (more) EU than the others, is that this Boba Fett appears to be based on an actual story line from the EU books, and a VERY popular one at that - where Boba escapes from the Sarlaac monster's belly by blasting his way out of it.  So in that sense, this one is particularly EU...   ;)

But yeah, almost none of the Unleashed poses really happened in the actual flicks, and therefore could be technically construed as EU as well.  I think of it more as creative licensing though...   8)

"We are all in agreeance here" - Fred Durst

What's even funnier is that it's very neutral. Sure he never "hovered" above the Sarlacc, but when they have it posed like this, it begs to ask the question..

"The Sarlacc has his leg..now is he trying to escape, or is he being sucked in..?"

Apparently G.L. is very cautious of contradicting himself here..and just leaving it up to our imagination, and beliefs in the Expanded Universe.

I pretty much look at this figure as Boba escaping the Sarlaac.  I guess that's primarily because we all saw him go into the Sarlaac with his jetpack flames OFF in ROTJ, and in a rather disoriented state at that.

Since the jetpack flames are in full effect on this figure, and Fett's attention appears sharp, with his gun pointed at the creature, I think Boba's on his way OUT here.  No reason the Sarlaac legs can't still be grappling at him as he's escaping as well...

Plus, since this moment (of Boba's escape) is possibly one of the favorite, most accepted, well known moments in Star Wars EU history, I see this as the Unleashed designers way of acknowledging the fans out their and showing off their knowledge of the Star Wars Saga (including some EU), as well as perhaps showing their disagreement with George's less than poetic offing of everyone's favorite (OT  ;)) bounty hunter...
