The long awaited White Mandalorian is finally here, let´s see what the fuzz is about :sweet:!

Set Number: TLG item number 4597068
Set name: Boba Fett
Year of release: 2010
Parts: 5
Minifigs: 1
S@H Price: Giveaway exclusive so far, no price.

Posted Image Posted Image
The polybag - front & back.

Posted Image
The five parts. Nothing new except the white printed torso instead of the old grey ones. And NO, there´s no print on the back. The helmet piece is the old x50px1

Posted Image
A 360° of Boba.

And now let´s meet the Fett Clan :laugh::
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
It´s nice to have them hang around and kick´in it after a long day of bounty hunting :thumbup:!

Posted Image
One last pic of them together.

So what´s the verdict from the jury on this one?
Well, it´s great to have yet another SW minifig and a white Boba is cool, but because of the lack of print on arms & legs it feels a bit naked.
So it´s a must have and then put him on a shelf & forget him. But still TLG - THANKS :sweet:!

Nice little white boba ! It looks a bit dull though, I'd prefer a mix of the two figs on the right (new boba with cloud city one's printings)  :classic:

HAHAHAHAHA

^That's^ what I have to say to those who bought these for ridiculous prices.  :laugh:

Thanks for the mini-review, but I think this fig is actually pretty boring. Sure, I wouldn't complain if I was able to get one, but I don't think I will be going out of my way to do so.

I would be more excited for it if they had used the new Mando helmet mold and jetpack. Oh wait, that's basically a clone trooper.  :laugh:

Nice review, especially with the showcase comparison on the current Mandalorian bounty hunters. I must agreed that it's plain looking without those additional prints but nevertheless this plain white bounty hunter is unique in its own rights and is now part of the bingo list for many die-hard SW collectors.  :grin:

Nice review and I love that you have all of the mandos to show the difference. I think it is alittle dull but I would love to have one, any word on how they are going to be available.

He looks nice, but I don't really need one, although I wouldn't say no to it if it'd be free somewhere.
I wonder what the new Boba would look like with the Cloud City printing and just grey arms.
But, I think decals would do. :classic:

:laugh: I knew this would turn up in giveaways eventually.
Now I feel sorry for those who spent a ridiculous amount for it. :look:
Anyway this isn't as nice as the other polybag minifigs, it looks a bit plain to me.
Thanks for the review CopMike!

Very cool. I can hardly wait to, hopefully, get one.

Great comparison photos, it really shows how supremely cool the Cloud City Boba is.

Hahahahah! :sweet:

Honestly, I almost wish they'd kept this to the limited Toy Fair run so that millions of SW fans could drool over it as an uttainable and expensive idol of desire.

Once you see it up close it is kind of.... *shrug*

I kinda like that he is just plain and simple, which is a complete contrast to the new Boba Fett fig that is overly detailed and stuff.

Either way great fig and curious, like everyone else, as to how you obtained it so I can snag one for myself. :)

Seems to be the only important thing, yeah ....... :tongue:!
I got it at a swedish toy store where the swedish AFOL´s of swebrick.se help TLG this fri-sat with the Clone Speed Event, publicly building the 2nd half of 2010 new sets and helping out kids who has LEGO questions. Boba is an extra set, that each buyer of the 8097 Slave 1, gets for free.

View PostKimT, on Mar 3 2010, 07:58 AM, said:

Only 150 ever made, does make it expensive though.
I think I'll pass and hope for more to be produced - otherwise I'll just have to shop a customized helmet and a decal for the torso.

I guess there will be around x200 times as many produced.

So, you're saying if someone buys 8097, the white Boba Fett in included in the set or randomly packed or?

Great review Copmike, I like the little polybag he comes in, great stuff  :thumbup:
I also like your Fett family comparison pics  :grin:

Now I await official word from LEGO on how they plan to have these distributed
Knowing my luck it will probably be another damn TRU exclusive
Hoping its a Target one this time  :cry_happy:

Fantastic CopMike! :cry_happy:
I sure hope I can get my hands on one of these soon because I really like these limited edition type minifigs lego put out (I have yet to get the chrome Vader though :hmpf_bad: ). White Boba I feel is the best yet cause its a great nod to behind the scenes of star wars.

I love the comparison pic! Makes me want to get all of them now :laugh:
