Boba Fett -OTC 12″ figure

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Today I will present to you, the Boba Fett 12″ figure by Hasbro from the Original Triology Collection or the Vintage Original Triology Collection (rerelease).

I bought this figure used, without his original gun unfortunately, but that is not a huge problem since I would like to upgrade the figure so it fits better with Sideshow Collectibles figures or Hot Toys figures.

Experience

Because it was a cheaper 12″ figure by Hasbro, I can’t blame how limited the figure is.
He doesn’t have that much poseability, or at least not as much as I would like from a 12″ figure, and some of the details don’t feel all too good.

But after all, I got this for only 25 euros and I planned to do some upgrades which might make the figure go up in price to about 120 euros, which is obviously cheaper than a regular Sideshow Collectibles or Hot Toys Boba Fett, but it will take more of my time to set it up completely.

The pictures I made however are from the unaltered figure.


 Content

Originally, other than his standard EE-3 Carbine Rifle, all he includes is just his Jetpack and a few of his utilities that store in his shin pockets.

He does not have a his Blaster Pistol which is a bit unfortunate, but since he has no holster either and didn’t use it in the movies, it’s not all that bad.

The pro about this figure is that his jump suit is made out of a cloth material. That means his pockets are soft and does not limit any of the articulation. Or at least, not as it limits it on the model kit or Black Series.

 Looks

The proportions are a bit weird in my opinion. from some angles it looks pretty good, but it usually looks like his legs are a little too short/thin. On some of my pictures (where I didn’t shoot his full legs) he looks actually pretty good, but when you see the figure completely, it has that weird look.

Not everything is accurate as well. His gloves have that green color (which should actually be grey) and his shoulder cape doesn’t have the right color + line on it. They are not all too bad, but that definitely means that there will be a bit more work required.

Overall, it is a great base for customizing.


 Poseability

The poseability with this standard body is a bit lacking, but you are still able to get a few nice poses out of him.

His antenna/visor does also move which is certainly a plus. As I said before as well, since he has a cloth jumpsuit, it shouldn’t restrict his poseability all that much. But the standard body has only joints that move 90 degrees which is a bit of a let down, but to be expected from a cheaper figure.

The worst things might be his ankle/feet and hand/wrist articulation which is as good as non existing. His wrists can only rotate and are attached to his gauntlets at weird angles. His ankles on the other hand can only hinge forward and backward and rotate left and right. But there is no ankle pivot.

Luckily even with the lacking poseability, he does stand pretty good, but sometimes his jetpack (which is pretty heavy) might come in and sort of ruin your super dynamic pose.


 Verdict

This Boba Fett is a good base figure in case you want to put your own figure together. Or in case you are looking for a 1/6th scale figure of Boba, but don’t want to waste too much money on him (because you might not like him all that much).

I for example love the character, and would like to just get one from Hot Toys or Sideshow, but since this Hasbro figure appeared on my Facebook page, I just considered getting this one to upgrade in the future.


 I give this Boba a 5/10

Pro’s

  • A cheap alternative for a 12″ Boba Fett

Con’s

  • Lacking poseability
  • Could use a lot of work to improve the figure
