I'm not sure how I feel about the increasingly more detailed Boba Fett minifigures - I'm still adjusting to the 2010 one - but this still seems a fine set on the whole, and I do look forward to getting it.

Nice review!

- 3 copies apiece of everyone else

I find it kind of amusing how they keep trying different techniques for Boba Fett's gun.  None of them look right.  They should just mold a special one and get it over with.

Great review! Definitely one of the picks of the latest SW wave in my opinion. The Boba Fett and Lando figures are the standouts and to have them in an affordable set is a nice bonus. The Skiff itself is also an improvement over the previous iteration. The sarlaac is probably the weakest part of the set but easy to overlook given how good the rest of it is.

Very informative and constructive review. Hope I'll have a possibility to buy it before 2013 (as I focused on rare sets) :laugh:

Should Luke have a black (robotic) hand? :-/

By the way: very good set! :)
