Even though my hatred for George Lucas has put my Star Wars collecting on a kind of hiatus, Hasbro continues to put out top quality products making it hard for me to resist. Luckily my son is into Star Wars big time so my collecting bug can be sedated through him. Hasbro continues to release figures (both original trilogy AND prequel) on "vintage" cards. The last batch of Original trilogy were C3-PO, E.S.B. Leia, E.S.B. Luke, Dengar, and Vader.I had to get the Vader for nostalgia sake. On the vintage card back Vader it said Hasbro had a mail away for the Legendary Rocket Firing Boba Fett of my youth that never was.Let me explain.
Well some 30 years later and Hasbro has decided to right this wrong buy remaking this often called "Holy Grail" of Star Wars. I just got mine in the mail yesterday. (The following pictures are from the web, there is no way i am opening mine!)
The real vintage one is one the left. The newer one is slightly bigger (to closer match the current line) but otherwise this figure is a faithfully created masterpiece. This picture doesn't do justice to how nice the colors pop.
Needless Things for some of the pics. Cool new Blog i just found and can't wait to read.
