takes a loo at the Bandai Movie Realization Daimyo Boba Fett
This figure is available from our sponsor Big Bad Toy Store
It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review!
This week, we're having a look at the Daimyo Boba Fett from the Mei Sho Movie Realization line from Bandai, which is inspired by the look he had in the Book of Boba Fett series, with his reclaimed, repainted Mandalorian armor. The Mei Sho Movie Realization line is the toy line where Bandai took characters from either Star Wars or Marvel, and gave them a 'Feudal Japan' twist. A nice addition to that line, even if it would be nice to finally get the other characters that have been teased over the past few years (more on that later).
The Daimyo Boba Fett figure comes with 4 extra hands, his jetpack, a katana with sheath, a blaster rifle, a blaster pistol, his gaffi stick from the Book of Boba Fett series and a chain with a hook to attach on his wrist weapon. It is VERY SAD that he didn't come with a throne, since he was displayed on a really nice one at conventions, but oh well... Also, the prices have been climbing up a lot on those figures, so I wouldn't have minded having more accessories (or a throne!) with it.
The figure itself looks great (as did the 3 previous Boba/Jango Fett figures) and has a lot of new parts. The paint apps are great on the figure, and the colors of the repainted armor really pop. The articulations are a bit hindered by all the armor parts, like a lot of the figures from that line, but he can still manage decent poses.
The next figure announced for this line is the Ashigaru 'Remnant' Stormtrooper, which is a Stormtrooper with 'battle damage' effects, as seen in the first season of The Mandalorian. It will be the 8th or 9th Stormtrooper figure in this line (sigh). Still no news about the IG-88, Admiral Ackbar or Gamorrean Guard figures that have been teased and displayed at conventions since 2019... 2 versions of the Mandalorian, another Boba Fett and another Stormtrooper have been announced AND released (apart from the Stormtrooper) since those have been shown... Is there still hope?
You can still grab this Daimyo Boba Fett figure from BigBadToyStore.
