Boba Fett (Droids 1985)

I know, I know - you're saying, "But you just posted this yesterday!" Ah, but I didn't - this is the Droids Boba Fett. Totally different. Except the figure.

Here we definitely have the coolest of the Droids line. Not only because it was made in the original line (thus not so cartoonish) but it’s freakin’ Boba Fett! Cool in anyone’s book. Boba didn’t get changed at all from his original appearance - same colors, same weapon (although the weapon is now molded in black). In fact, it is a Stormtrooper rifle, which many, many a Star Wars figure came with.

Why should you get this figure? Five reasons:

1. C’mon! It’s Boba Fett!

2. Other than the kid figure from Attack of the Clones, this is the youngest version of Boba they ever made a figure of. Of course, he’s in armor, so it’s exactly the same as the others.

3. Boba as you’ve never seen him before: clumsy and inept. Although there was that whole fell-into-the-Sarlacc-Pit thing.

4. Only one of twelve to get the whole line – and the coolest of the bunch.

5. It never hurts to have an extra Boba just in case something happens to your others.


Apparently Boba owed Sise Fromm a favor, so agreed to kill Thall Joben and wreck his chances of winning the Boonta speeder race. Through the help of the droids and a series of unfortunate circumstances, Boba did not succeed, and ended up turning Sise in.
