Yea, I'm not wild about them at all. Don't get me wrong the fett is cool and all, but I'm not really digging the new packaging.

Looks like they made room for the inner tray with those huge things. No wonder they are $7.99, they use $6.00 worth of tray and bubble. Laughing

I have to say those bubbles looks shit imo i dont know why they didnt just use the VOTC / VSTC bubbles?

I suppose its good in one way as the cant be confused with vintage in any way.

I do fancy trying to get the rocket firing fett mind but im not keen on the larger projectile

how come that they took it off the market 30 years ago

because off chocking hazard

what makes them think this time it wont happen

i mean it's not like kids are getting smarter


i think it sucks , like a reissue of a 3000usd valued skateboard

it will only create more scammers

and get the price of the og boba down

Hey Jimmy, this link explains what happened which caused the change with the original Rocket Fett. The new one comes with a small missile which will not fire as it would still be a choking hazard. If you look in the picture the larger missile is the one that actually fires. Hasbro had to do the same thing with their reissue Transformers a few years back while the Japanese reissues used the exact same missiles.

I don't think you have to worry about the modern toys hurting the value of vintage.

If anything ... it raises interest in star wars collecting... thus raising the value of vintage and modern items across the board.

Just look at how bad the world economy is, yet people still want to pay thousands of dollars for star wars items.... vintage or modern!!!!

Star Wars has been the dominate toy line for 30 years... and it shows no signs of slowing down

iam not worried , all modern fig look modern , the boba looks vintage, and if you put it on ebay loose, with a rocket of a other boba

then you could try and scam people

There really isnt much to scam... since the only 2 available rocket firing fett prototypes out there to buy are the AFA ones from Brianstoys.

Anyone who buys one thinking its the real deal is an idiot!!!!
