Sideshow Collectibles Star Wars Boba Fett Prototype Armor Sixth Scale Figure Review
“Meet Boba Fett”. Those are the first three words that greet you when you first open the magnetic flap of the distinctive T shaped visor-inspired packaging containing the Sideshow Collectibles Boba Fett Prototype Armor Sixth Scale figure. The box is a work of art in its own right.
Once opened, it probably won’t take long to realize this is arguably by far the most intricate action figure depicting Boba Fett as he appeared in the 1978 screen test. The Sixth Scale white Boba Fett is no repaint; this is clearly a dedicated figure built from the ground up as most clearly evidenced by the pristine helmet missing its iconic dent. The level of detail is nothing short of astonishing: functional cloth pockets below his knees where his included accessories can be stored. Five different interchangeable hands, all of which are incredibly detailed. Grappling hooks that actually open out, exactly as seen in the screen test. Adjustable velcro armor plates for custom placement. Meticulously painted and detailed guns. As a bonus, when ordered directly from Sideshow Collectibles you will even get a replica Star Wars beach towel cape. About the only element missing is the red and blue coloration in the small triangles above the visor. Incredible.
