Fett Facing Front

I said it some time ago that Boba Fett needed a close up - well, here he is, scoping out Jabba's Palace. As much as I love the POTF2 line, like many of the figures Fett's representation here isn't the best. I've seen a lot of the more recent ones about, with better articulation, paint jobs, proportion (the less said about the barrel-chest the better). But I'll say one thing for this guy; when you're a kid, being able to take the jet-pack and Wookie braids off is awesome.

Note the hand reflection on the toaster behind the Clone Pilot! The ARF Trooper is pretty special though, and is kinda the inspiration behind this whole blog, being as it's the first Star Wars figure I purchased since ROTS Anakin Skywalker back in 2005. It's nice to give him a little feature every now and again, especially so considering how POTF2-centric this blog's been. Not that that's ever a problem, mind!

And this guy, the most recent addition, is also sweet. Yeah, they may not be *quite* as cool as OT Stormtroopers, but these guys sure have character. And the eagle-eyed of you may have spotted Deadpool scaring the heck out of ARF back there. Yeah, that happened.

Back again! I wasn't too happy with the way the previous Luke and Yoda shots turned out, so in a fit of Sunday inspiration I grabbed the figures and marched down to the park.

I much prefer this over the older one here. The tree and background looks good, and I got lucky with the lighting, and got there just as the sun had pretty much set. Also, as proof that the POTF2 Yoda figure does have legs...

One day I'll expand on it to have a swamp filthy X-Wing flying over his head whilst the John Williams score plays as loud as humanly possible over the top...
