The HT ROTJ sculpt was a little off (a bit vertically elongated and narrow) - so far this ESB one looks nice but doesn't look flared enough, the range finder is still too long and the "cheek" sculpt is supposed to be a slightly distorted half circle, not the rounded trapezoid they have there. And looks like they still have that taper on the vertical part of the "T".

This is what I mean about the "cheeks":

https://i.imgur.com/f0lbSjr.png

Like 1/6 Vaders, there's been quite a few 1/6 Fetts now, so you'd hope this would be a "one and done" figure from HT. This is the "the" look for Fett for most people (maybe the reason HT ROTJ Fett seemed to fade away) so really hope the helment can be 100% nailed.

Wasn’t happy with how the 1/6 Boba came out. The proportions looked off to me. He looked chubby and stocky with no neck. The shoulder armor should be kinda draped down over his shoulders rather than propped up. Also the chest armor looks puffy. I have the 1/4 scale and it’s my favorite figure. Proportions look great on that. I hope the ESB 1/6 fixes some of the issues I had with the ROTJ.

Also the Solo movie will or has been delaying all these figure releases.

My hope is that they are just reusing the Jedi head for this photoshoot because the ESB sculpt isn't finished yet. They have done that sort of thing before.

So far they have shown a surprising attention to detail when it comes to subtle armor/costume changes between versions. Just look at ANH Stormtrooper vs Sandtroopers vs RotJ Stormtrooper.

They are actually very different, much more so than Vader. The colours are different green and different flight suit. The gauntlets are a new design and red in ROTJ. If you look at comparison pictures you'll notice a lot.

Interesting. What are the "spats vs ties" and "ee-3" difference? Didn't realize there was so much, did they lose the costume or something? :lol People generally prefer one version over the other?

1. Green Gauntlets vs. Red Gauntlets
2. Brown Cape vs. Green Cape
3. Vest Color
4. Spats vs. Ties
5. Gray Coveralls vs. Lt. Blue coveralls
6. EE-3 Difference.
7. Kill Stripe Colors
8. Jetpack colors

1) girth belt colors
2) ammo belt pouch numbers and configuration
3) every piece of armor is painted differently.
4) shoulder armor and knee armor have different base colors between the versions.
5) some shin tools are painted and look different...some are optional in RoTJ
6) colors and appearance of side belt pouches
7) obvious differences in the helmet (rangefinder, dental files in rear) besides paint jobs.
8) differences in minor details on jet packs (dental files on esb version)

You have to choose a side so that’s why I chose ROTJ SE. I prefer the colors of the ROTJ costume but with the helmet of the ESB version. Win-Win!

And the ROTJ EE-3 can be seen in my sig. You’ll see the barrel’s different on this ESB figure’s version where it looks like a lightsaber at the end.

I second that.

I sent them a PM via Facebook regarding the (now) infamous nose plug issue with their Vader helmets, and got a generic 'thank you for taking the time.....' Never heard back, but didn't expect to.

so far only improvements I see are in the paint. But we all know how these prototype paint jobs go... in any case if it comes even CLOSE to what these photos look like in paint... it simply smears the sideshow version across the floor. For some reason sideshow could just not get the color right on their ESB, the first being way too light and the second looking way too olive looking. The colors shown here from the HT is ESB spot on, this includes the lighter green on the helmet. Ab plate sits too low, but that should be an easy fix.

This is the Fett I've been waiting for, just surprised that I didn't have to wait longer than this to see him. But I guess like Vader, Fett is a good seller for them, and comparatively easy to pump out different variants of.

Still, as long as they don't drop the ball, it works for me.

I agree with you on all points. And yet, they still cannot get the helmet to flare right. Sorry, but that is a huge issue. This is the 3rd time they are using that same helmet. Hell, even the 6" Mafex nailed the helmet for that figure. Can someone take that helmet and blow it up for 1:6? I wish, lol

The V2 by far is strides ahead of the V1, flightsuit color and tailoring is perfected. It's paint job isn't BAD, it's pretty okay, but still suffers with a lime green helmet and armor green tones slightly off. With that said, HT's helmet sculpt (seen on ROTJ and previewed on ESB) is basically identical, suspiciously so. Probably a reused mold. So yes, I agree, if they can't nail the color down, it will be a useless upgrade as V2 is a good ESB. But, if they can pull off the right colors as the prototype seems to allude to what they're aiming for, HT will be the one to own. Not for any special accessories, or better tailoring or anything else, because none of that matters. Even a bare minimum Fett will do... but that color palette is what we've been missing so far. Which is kinda funny that ESB colors are so in particular, I don't think I've ever heard once anywhere someone complain about the reds used on ROTJ or even his greens. I guess it's just easier? Darker olive green armor...green helmet, red gauntlets, done. But ESB.. very specific green gauntlets, specific green armor (bonus points for weathered darker right chest armor plate, and darker chest diamond), specific lighter green helmet. It seems so much harder to get right.

378911

At this point I prefer the same helmet. It's not just the flare, but the T visor as well, way too elongated. It's a long face Fett.

But.. if HT ESB dropped an all new helmet sculpt, I would have to rid myself of all my other SSC/HT Fetts, because it wouldn't look right with one correct Fett and the rest looking long faced. I don't think I'd take on the task of rebuying the ESB helmet and repainting them for the others, so it would just be one fett in my collection. Which in hindsight would probably be best... but we've come so far with these long faced fetts, Proto, Holiday, ROTJ, ESB... why turn back now? lol. I kinda hoped for it with the HT ROTJ.. but we're too far in now. You remake that helmet, you need to revisit ROTJ. I think they feel it's "good enough". And while it kinda sucks, at least it works for the collection.

PS while that 6" proportionally looks nice, is he unpainted or something? The dull consistent green tones throughout make it a pretty boring interpretation, like they didn't even try. That EE-3 Carbine is also pretty ridiculously short. Gauntlets are nicely sculpted tho! The bucket is a beauty though! Some corrections on the Range finder topper and it would be a masterpiece. Impressive for 6". It does make you wonder.

The HT ROTJ sculpt was a little off (a bit vertically elongated and narrow) - so far this ESB one looks nice but doesn't look flared enough, the range finder is still too long and the "cheek" sculpt is supposed to be a slightly distorted half circle, not the rounded trapezoid they have there. And looks like they still have that taper on the vertical part of the "T".

This is what I mean about the "cheeks":

https://i.imgur.com/f0lbSjr.png

Like 1/6 Vaders, there's been quite a few 1/6 Fetts now, so you'd hope this would be a "one and done" figure from HT. This is the "the" look for Fett for most people (maybe the reason HT ROTJ Fett seemed to fade away) so really hope the helment can be 100% nailed.

That’s the color I want as well. I know screen caps are difficult to gauge but the colors we’re seeing look too much like the SS one (helmet) and the armor too olive like their ROTJ version.


If this is just a repaint of the ROTJ Fett, I will pass. But knowing HT there's enough changes to make me happy.

Though, they'd never fix everything. I could live with the gloves if they fix the flare.

Yeah, picked up the ROTJ Fett and while it had some really nice aspects didn’t seem anywhere close to a home run. I think I need that with Fett to keep my purchase. Ended up selling it off. He’s maybe the best, most interesting-looking secondary character.

🙄.....Fett didn't die in the Sarlacc pit. Now come on man, that's common knowledge lol. The outfit is just cooler and more iconic in Jedi. The red gauntlets, darker green, multi-colored jet pack and 'more pouches than a Rob Liefeld character' makes the character stand out more..and Fett's certainly not about blending in. But if anybody seriously wants to make the most 'iconic' and widely used Fett look; just slap the Empire helmet on the Jedi body. You see countless images in reference books/online, video games, comic books, cosplayers, promotional images and actual movie footage of Fett with that mix matched look.

Hell, even the 6" Mafex nailed the helmet for that figure. Can someone take that helmet and blow it up for 1:6? I wish, lol

Gotta say for a 6" its a little masterpiece

I'm looking at my Sideshow Fett (along with my Hot Toys one standing right next to it)....and I'm trying to figure out what you mean by 'nothing hangs right.' Do you mean the bulky hard foam packed into the large pockets look unnatural? As compared to Hot Toys just putting a subtle bit of fluff in theirs. Then again, the skinny thighs, short forearms, lanky legs, squared off chest armor, dirty string braids, bulged out cod piece, catcher mitt hands and baby puke mint green color might also have something to do with it being a bit toy-ish looking lol. I do (or more accurately DID) love the figure......until Hot Toys made theirs. I'll replace the Sideshow one only if Hot Toys makes a totally new helmet mold. If it's just a repaint, then that's a no go for me.

Hmm, very peculiar. The Hot Toys Jedi Fett (if anything) has too long of a neck. At least the unaltered one I have does. Then again, there might be some play in how far up or down you can push the helmet. So there's a possibility mine isn't pushed down as far as it can go perhaps. I tried to upload a picture of mine, but I keep getting an "incorrect file extension" error message - only recently did that start to happen. And with these ESB pics, Fett's head is angled downwards.

Someone did. The mafex helmet (like their first mafex vader) is just a scaled down version of their 1/6 RAH Boba helmet. I much prefer it over the Sideshow and Hot Toys helmets. Unfortunately, I think it is a little undersized if put on a regular body.

The helmet is also too long faced, giving it an awkward look. Boba has a very lanky and craned neck in the films, rather than a thick short neck.

Again, my unaltered Hot Toys ROTJ Boba Fett doesn't in the slightest have a thick short neck. It is a long, thin neck. But I'll just chalk it up to you see blue and I see green. As in, everybody has a different perception. Speaking on the helmet, I never saw it being too long. It never crossed my mind until reading recent comments on that. I do see the vertical part of the visor being a bit too long. But I don't think it throws off the look of it really..as in making me say "it just looks too long." Nothing's perfect lol. But the kind of stuff that's being put out these days, I really have nothing to complain about. Even if I noticed an error or two, the sheer awe and brilliance of these miniature pieces of art far surpass any quibbles. I know it's a cliché now, but some collectors have become very spoiled and entitled. This minority has got to be the millennial collectors that I haven't been in it like the rest of us for 20+ years. We have gone through more than a few phases of technology with figures....and what they're cranking out now, I would have never dreamed of such realism. Something like the Toys McCoy Indy blew my f-ing mind in 1999. Now, comparing that to the Hot Toys Indy, it looks like a toy. Point is, I am so damn grateful for all of these shrunken down articulated actors. As much of a perfectionist and OCD as I am, for some reason with figures all I feel is gratitude.

I agree, we have our opinions and it’s ok to have them. I personally have never seen the 1/6 in hand, so my opinions may be invalid honestly. I only have the 1/4 and obviously it’s easier to make proportions look right on a bigger figure. And the 1/4 isn’t perfect either. In hand I think it looks pretty spot on, but when I take pictures of it something looks off, so that may be the case with the 1/6. Side note, the 1/4 is one of my favorite figures in my collection because of the costume layers and different materials. As far as I know, it’s like they shrunk down a movie costume, even the scuba belt that’s under the armor and can barely see. Ideally I’d like them to make a 1/4 ESB version, but I don’t think that’s gonna happen. And yea, the fact that we can have miniature versions of what we see on a screen is amazing. I’m of the younger crowd, but still there was nothing like this when I was growing up. I’m 100% appreciative of what we have today from Hot Toys, Sideshow, etc. It’s really awesome.

Thanks guys! I can definitely say there is lens distortion when taking pictures with a phone. Things can look quite askewed when not using an actual camera. Yeah, that's what impresses me the most with my 1/6 Fett..the sheer amount of layers and items on the thing is mind blowing. You'd think that Fett would look quite tacky with all that crap on, but it only makes them look more badass. OT Chewie is still the most impressive figure I own (or have ever seen); but Boba is right up there. I just got Venkman the other day and man oh man, more impressed than I though I was going to be. I wasn't planning on getting a 2nd Ghostbuster, but just ordered Ray. Wrong thread I know lol - but if anyone's on the fence about them, pick one up if you can. Those figures are just going to keep increasing in value.

Yeh that was how I used to do mine but it is still overly fiddly.

Perhaps I didn't word it correctly when I said about the thick neck. There is something about the head on shoulders area that throws off the proportions compared to the 1:1 to me though. Maybe it is how the helmet actually sits in the neck I dinno.


Either way this guy is so bought. :)

The ESB helmet looks ok, not perfect. It's just a repaint of the ROTJ but hey can't totally blame HT for doing it, why waste money to make a new sculpt when only a percentage of the fans knows the intrinsic details of the helmet. I'm ok with it
What I love about the deluxe helmet is its the infamous "eyes helmet" which was a real prop made back in ESB but never made it into the final film.

I missed out on the ROTJ and I'm not one for paying for figures at an increased price on the after market. I really want a Boba Fett figure but the helmet and colours looks so off on this one. ESB is my preferred look for him over ROTJ as well.

I think it looks really good at angled poses like in these images but face on (in the small view on the second image) it looks way off.

This is exactly what I thought at first too, but looking at that pic from Secret Base, the deluxe comes with two helmets. The second helmet "appears" to be more flared out and accurate to ESB. If the that helmet is a more accurate version to ESB, I'm in.

Of course the suit looks to me that it needs to be more blue for the ESB. So, still might have to dye that?

I'm no Fett expert, but I have to agree about the helmet looking a bit weird and off. Although it does seem to be growing on me the more I look at it.

The Hot Toys Jedi Fett (if anything) has too long of a neck.

I've always thought of Fett as having a longish neck, part of the thing I like. Never noticed it was too long on HT but I did notice it was too short for my liking on the SS.

Now the HT one's helmet doesn't flare enough for me, that's for sure. Doesn't look like they addressed that on this proto. I hope they fix it by the time the production piece is finished.

It shouldn't but I can't understand why else they wouldn't give us a better helmet. In some of those shots it does look like different helmets but they're somehow worse looking to me than the ROTJ version. Also, the flight suit seems to be the wrong colour.

Maybe I’m in the “Circa” that has seen V1 SS, SS Jango, HT ROTJ, SS V2 Boba Fett. With each incarnation and flaws of these 1/6 Boba Fett’s our expectation for HT ESB Fett becomes greater. But parallel to that the impact of a 1/6” Fett lessons (we have seen so many). Compare this to new collectors with HT ESB Fett as their first opportunity to own 1/6 Fett. I would imaging their head over heels, jumping for joy, full of excitement. For us that have seen our share HT ESB Fett is "below expectation, alright, no need to get this I have ROTJ, not to improved from SS”. I am in the camp that felt that the ROTJ Fett provided little for me to upgrade my SS Fett (I even took my SS Fett to the Store and compared the the HT), and with this new HT ESB I feel the same way. I’m not head over heels with the new ESB Fett. If anything it feels like HT is “cutting corners”.

hypnobrett
01-11-2018, 10:24 AM
I think they know the helmet is off. They just don’t care. That’s why every promo pic has the head posed looking slightly down in an effort to try and hide the inaccuracies. Also, overall it looks like a little kid cosplaying as Boba Fett. It’s such a bummer, if HT had addressed all the issues then I would without a doubt be getting this and the holiday special Fetts.

Having the ROTJ version, though, at least you can pose it with the sarlaac base in a dynamic way that takes the focus off of the weird proportions. I have thought about selling mine but it doesn’t seem like there will be a better Fett anytime for many years to come.

^^^^ can't tell, I'd need to see a bigger photo.


For the helmet issues, of course they were not going to fix it. If they fixed the helmet it would make this the definitive Fett, and make all other Fetts look like a sad story up until now. From Super Trooper, through Sideshow's ESB, HT's ROTJ, the Animated, etc etc.

Personally, there is nothing here that beats the SSC's ESB, except for paintwork. And the paintwork, if it's the same as the photos were are seeing, blows the SSC paintwork out of the water. However, everything else is the same. In fact SSC's ESB flightsuit has a much better fit. Between braids, blasters, etc. no big upgrades anywhere. It's all in the paintwork. And the paintwork for me is worth it for the upgrade.

Hmmm... I passed on the Rotj version as I prefer the ESB version and I already had the 1st SS release. What's cool about the deluxe is it's like almost having both a ESB & ROTJ Fett all in one (- a few differences, mainly belt and left forearm guard). I might jump on this even though I love the SS Fett. If I dump my SS Fett I would keep the light up base though. I also just bought the HT ROTJ Fett gun on TA as I always liked that gun better with the bigger muzzle. Plus if I do get this & decide to keep my SS ESB, I can display this guy with the alternate Jedi backpack & guantlets, and now his ROTJ gun. It was kinda pricey @ $30, but none on ebay & I feel it will be even more sought after now after seeing this new Dx ESB version. TA had 2, so still another in stock if any one else is thinking the same...

Here's a side-by-side of the HT helmets. The new ESB head is tilted down a bit more than the ROTJ, but taking that into account, it looks like the same helmet with different side panels and paint job.

Thanks for that!

I actually see a bit more flare in the ESB helmet even with the slight tilt -- which means there's even more flare than shown. Not huge but its there. You can tell the angle by the extra distance between where the scope attaches to the helmet in both. More distance needed on ESB to make the rangefinder go up straight.

Hot Toys has made changes to improve accuracy between initial prototype photos being shown and production of a number of figures before (Terminator 2 DX-13 Battle Damaged T-800 and Predator 2 Elder Predator 2.0 come to mind) when enough potential customers have let them know that they weren't happy with what they were showing. But they need to hear from collectors or Hot Toys will regard the reception as overwhelmingly positive and put out another "off" figure that could have easily been better than anything else that's come before it. If you're unhappy with this figure let them know on social media or via email and don't count on them to make changes just because they should or to revisit Boba Fett in the future with an ESB Fett 2.0 that would hopefully be more accurate. Howard Chan seems to love Star Wars, but Boba Fett isn't Iron Man.

I never really paid attention to the nuances in Fett’s outfit before, so I’m not sure what the key differences are. Looking though at those images that juxtapose the ESB figure and the RotJ figure, I think I like the look of the RotJ outfit better.

Hot Toys has made changes to improve accuracy between initial prototype photos being shown and production of a number of figures before (Terminator 2 DX-13 Battle Damaged T-800 and Predator 2 Elder Predator 2.0 come to mind) when enough potential customers have let them know that they weren't happy with what they were showing. But they need to hear from collectors or Hot Toys will regard the reception as overwhelmingly positive and put out another "off" figure that could have easily been better than anything else that's come before it. If you're unhappy with this figure let them know on social media or via email and don't count on them to make changes just because they should or to revisit Boba Fett in the future with an ESB Fett 2.0 that would hopefully be more accurate. Howard Chan seems to love Star Wars, but Boba Fett isn't Iron Man.

Yeah I think we all need to contact them and they will most likely change if they can see that they are going to lose sales due to inaccuracy.

I had no intention of buying the V1 SS Fett back then but when I saw it on display I was blown away. Loved the contrast of colours, the dirty pants etc. Also “Whats in the Box” offering with light up Cloud City base, multiple hands, feet options all for $170 CAN. There was a lot of “BANG” in my Canadian buck!! When HT released their ROTJ I was on the fence, essentially over $100 more for a HT. When the figure was available at my collectors store I took my SS to trade (and add $100 +). When I was at the store I compared the two and I just loved the contrast of colours with the SS compared to the darker reds, greens of ROTJ. Very happy that I did not make the trade and kept my SS. Looking at these initial images there is no temptation to sell my SS again.

Thanks for that!

I actually see a bit more flare in the ESB helmet even with the slight tilt -- which means there's even more flare than shown. Not huge but its there. You can tell the angle by the extra distance between where the scope attaches to the helmet in both. More distance needed on ESB to make the rangefinder go up straight.

I thought it was just my eyes in seeing a difference between the two so I'm glad someone else can see slightly more flare in the helmet.

Looks like it's time for someone to make an accurate custom helmet that we can all use for these, since SS and HT will clearly never get it right.

dudes... the helmets are the same.

For those questioning "which helmet is best", they are all the same. From Sideshow to HT, they are the exact same. Main issue being the T Visor is too long, the helmet should not have this loong face. So really it's up to what accessories / colors of the version you like most. We can all unanimously agree the Sideshow paint scheme of the ESB version 1 (version 2 slightly improved) is the poorest of all. If the paintwork shown here on the HT ESB, then surely this will be better than the SSC ESB version. Aside from that, it's about what armor do you like more? ROTJ style with red gauntlets and colored jetpack? or ESB with subdued green colors. You also have the choice of Mythos and Animated and Supertrooper which have a little more creative liberty to them outside of the original movies.

I see what you mean about the range finder, but I think the production ROTJ helmet that HT released has the same extra distance between the scope and the helmet. I checked my ROTJ helmet, and noticed it. Don't know why it's different than the promo photos. :dunno I'll try to take a pic of it later (hopefully someone beats me to it). But for now, here's another comparison of the new ESB figure between two shots from movie Fett. Next time I watch ESB, I'm going to have to remember to check his knee pads in that scene; in the movie pic on the left, the knee pads are reversed. :lol

I never noticed. Thanks for pointing that out! Costume continuity must not have been too important during filming back in the day. :lol

They wont change it. It's how the helmet has been used across all versions so far, changing that basically says everything else made up until this point are all inaccurate and worthless lol. For sake of continuity, every Fett that can be made, will be made with this bucket. Until the next round of upgrade versions ;)

You can dye the suit but you cant stretch the helmet out.

That poster looks really saturated.

I would imagine that HT will make adjustments that it can as long as its not costly. Final suit color may be more accurate. Helmet change is 50/50 chance.

Why are parts of this image blurred out/missing? Range finder/elbow/gun etc?

The fake depth of field effects on new phones can blur out things in the foreground, especially if they’re thin like the rangefinder or rifle when it generates the bokeh in the background.

My guess:

$240 reg
$270 deluxe
Q 4 2018

Excellent I save $270 !

I'm on the "I'm sticking with my SS Fett" team this time.

SS Boba was my first 1/6 figure, so he's not going anywhere. I also love the wired "cape". Can get such great poses with that thing. Also like someone else mentioned, he's well weathered and has a cool light up base. Helmet on mine seems great, he looks like Boba Fett to me which is all that matters.

So yep, $270 bucks saved..................for a different Hot Toys figure later on :-) Either way you get my money Hot Toys ! :lol

Here's a pic I took of different 1/6 Boba buckets (sorry if there's lens distortion - I'm terrible at photography). You can see the extra range finder spacing from the helmet that was referenced earlier on the HT one.

And here's a pic I took from the Costumes book that shows some of the helmets created for the movies and promotions.

The Deluxe version is a welcome surprise, I love it! Definitely getting the Deluxe because the pre-production paint job was my first Hasbro figure ever that got me into Star Wars. I'll want to display the Deluxe but also thinking about getting the regular ESB Boba to display that also. UGH my wallet.

If the weathering was better, the hasbro titanium would probably be my favorite, it's still ok as is. Medicoms is 2nd. I also prefer the medicom suit, but he's about 1/7 scale (version 1).

Not sure. Lighting maybe? :dunno It's definitely darker than the other helmets, but not quite as dark as it seems in my pic. I mostly buy these parted out, so I have no idea what version/edition/release this one was from.

Medicom is the clear winner there.

Thanks for the comparison.
