Set- Boba Fett
p/c- 5
Ages- 6+
Movie- None
Price-$50-$60 USD

Boba being one of my favorite SW characters, this mini figure was a must have. The overall apperance is bland, but since it's Boba, it's amazing. I wish I was able to get one at an event, but good thing Ebay/Bricklink is around.

Minifigs- Only 1 in 10000 gives this a 8/10

Parts- Exclusive fig parts only in this polybag gives this a 9/10

Playability- It's a minifig, not much can be said, but it's a very nice collectable, it gets a 5/10

Price- $60 USD for one rare fig, ouch! It gets a  3/10

Overall- I'm very pleased with this fig, my first "1 in 10000" minifig, so this will be an excellent addition to my collection. The price is the only thing I can find wrong with this fig. I would prefer printed arms and legs, but since this was a test version for the 2000 Boba Fett, I'll let that slide. It gets a 8/10

Great review. One thing that bothers me is that they were giving these away for free at Celebration V to the little kids who helped make the ESB mosaic, for free!!! Did I mention they were free! :sing: :sadnew:

And here they are selling for at least $50.

The original designs for Boba Fett had him in an all-white costume.

I suppose they thought he was just not going to be able to keep it clean enough, what with all the jetpacking and disintegrations.  :classic:

Nice review, but there were many more than 10,000 produced.  They were given out with the purchase of the new slave one in some European countries.  I am pretty sure we have not seen the last of this fig, meaning more are going to be distributed.

Seems like half the packs Lego have provided don't end up making it to promotions. There are 3 or 4 sellers on ebay selling them by the bucket full. Surely Lego loose out with this strategy and it would be far better and fairer to insert randomly in all countries?
