okay, so a few months ago when these 12" votc figures were announced and shown, i got really excited, since boba fett is like my all time favorite character, and the figure they made of him looked pretty bad ass.
a few days ago, i see someone at rs selling an extra 12" votc fett, along with some other stuff i needed, so i contacted him and bought a bunch of stuff.
yesterday, the box arrived, and i couldn't wait to get home from work and check them out. the fett was the blue suit version, so i kinda bought just as a hold-me-over till i get the grey one. the packaging on these is so awesome, i didn't even want to take it out of the box. but i had to, since none of my 12" collection is boxed anymore.
that was the biggest mistake i've made in a long time.
to make a long story short - this figure sucks. absolutley sucks. $30 for this? i'm guessing that box cost about $25 to make then... it is almost enough to make me appreciate the first boba fett figure, with the ridiculously small head and no articulation. he might not be going to that "misfit" pile where the old figures that have better versions released end up....
where do i start? the helmet. it's huge. almost like they took the "extra" from the first helmet that they forgot to add, and put it with this one to make up for it. the range finder is like a flimsy piece of pasta. it won't even stay straight.
the pouches on his uniform. wtf? is he supposed to put ewoks in there? they are freakin huge.
the legs/boots. way too small. his feet are so small, it would be like a guy who was 6' tall wearing a size 5 shoe. they don't even support his weight.
after this, i'm not even sure if i want the correct grey version. what's the point?
