It's been over 3 months since I last reviewed a Star Wars: The Black Series figure! There is a new series of standard figures out now but I haven't found any of them yet. I have, however, found the new deluxe release of Boba Fett based on his Return of the Jedi appearance. The original Boba Fett figure in the Black Series was released in 2013 so it's nice to finally get an update even if this is a fairly different outfit. Jar Jar Binks was released at the end of last year as a deluxe figure and he seemed a bit light for a deluxe release even though he was fairly tall and packed with some larger accessories. Why does Boba Fett warrant a deluxe release rather than being packaged in a standard box? Good question. My guess is that it has to do with him having more paint applications and a fairly nice complement of accessories though you may disagree. Let's take a look at this new version of Boba Fett after the break and see if he's worth hunting down...
* The helmet looks like a great sculpt and has some excellent paint work. Seriously, it's superb and looks more like metal than plastic.
* Boba Fett also has a functioning range finder. Well, functional in the sense that it can pivot down over his visor and not in the sense that it can actually truly aid the figure in targeting fools during combat.
* Boba Fett comes with his EE-3 blaster rifle. It's absolutely a new sculpt that's based on the Return of the Jedi model. It's very sharp and has a lot of weathering too it rather than the cleaner look of his ESB rifle.
