Boba Fett, the infamous bounty hunter, is arguably one of the most popular characters in the Star Wars universe. I won’t go into his history, but you can read it at Starwars.com. Since Boba Fett is one the most popular characters in the galaxy far far away, he is also one of the top five selling Star wars action figures ever. There have been many Boba Fett action figures released throughout the years. A prototype of a rocket firing Boba Fett released in 1980 is one of the most expensive action figures to collect. You can read a little bit more about that on rebelscum.com.

Boba Fett’s ship, the Slave I, is also popular and has been recreated in many different forms.

In recent years there have been some other excellent Boba Fett action figures and merchandise released. For instance, the Vintage Collection line which ran from 2010 to 2013 released a Boba Fett figure for Empire Strikes Back. This figure is a re-release of a 2008 anniversary figure.  A year later, Hasbro released a more film accurate Boba Fett in 2011 with a Return of the Jedi cardback.

The best release of Boba Fett lately is the Star Wars: Black Series six inch figure. This figure released in late 2013, and was initially difficult to find. Because of this, it was selling for double (or more) of its retail price on the secondary market. I was lucky enough to find mine at Target. It is a highly articulated figure with many details that cannot be featured on smaller figures. The two weapons and the jet pack are removable and the cape is made of cloth.

LEGO Boba Fett is pretty darn cool too.

I was at Disneyland a few weeks ago and found this Pixar Cars Chick Hicks as Boba Fett. It is a worthy addition to anybody’s Boba Fett collection!

Boba Fett has a new ride.

Ultimately, for all Boba Fett fans there are plenty of action figures and other merchandise to help quench your thirst for this bounty hunter. You can see more Star Wars figures HERE, including all the different variations of Boba Fett.

With that, I would also like to wish all my readers a Happy Star Wars Day!
