My only complaint about the Boushh is that the Helmet is too big. Very nice otherwise.

I see that the Boba Fett, though basically a rehash, has a much better paint job and colors, along with a proper missle in his pack, instead of that shitastic button. That makes him a definite opener for me.

Barada looks like he's been given a much better deco as well. He might be worth getting an extra to open as well.

Hopefully the rest of the rehashes will stay at this level of upgrade/modification. I can live with what they've done here.

Well, maybe that means they took out the action feature altogether, because it really affects how well he poses on the flames - he just looks awkward.   :-\

I'd love to have one that displays better, because the idea behind the figure is great, but the annoying action feature got in the way.

Bib and Leia Boushh look better ever time I see a new picture of them.  I like Han for the Carbonite block itself really.  I have to admit that I am kind of liking those mini-holograms more and more.

Hmmm, now that you mention it...

I was just looking at the Rebelscum Photo, and it looks like the Saga2 Fett is part vOTC, part Carkoon Fett - definitely a kit-bash.

The legs are definitely the vOTC legs (the placement of the knee pads and the dent in the crotch are the give-away).  The upper torso/arms are definitely the old Carkoon sculpt though.

*scratches his head*

I MAY want this now...  That combination of parts is ok, but I dunno...  I know my gf's kids want him if he's not too hard to find, but I just don't get why they'd do this kitbash and not just a straight VOTC re-release?  They're both ROTJ... 

Should've done a VOTC re-release in ESB Deco.

And he comes with a Holo Dooku too. Now I may have to get one. :-\

I didn't take the time to look at the Fett pic up close, figuring it would be a "pass" for me...but now that I see that, you guys are right.  It does look like VOTC legs on the Carkoon Fett.  Why they didn't just re-release the entire VOTC Fett figure I have no idea, that makes no sense at all.  I might be a little more tempted by this figure now, we'll see, if it was the entire VOTC figure repacked for $5-6 I'd buy another.

You answered your own question. ;)

Sorry, if it was the VOTC then I might pick it up. The 300th Fett is still by far one of my favorite figures so until they beat that . . . . I'll pass.

I just got my Han in Carbonite...be sure you check to see if his hair is fully painted.

And just for record keeping I got a Queen Amidala with funny head dress hologram.


This Han  figure is a let down.  But if VOTC 2005 has the Han Endor with VOTC 2004 Han articulation, I'll get over it.

How does the likeness on the new figure hold up to the VOTC version when you see it in person?
