Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

That's the one that was repacked for the Vintage Collection VC09 Boba Fett in late 2010. I agree. Best Boba Fett ever.

With this Battle Pack one, though, I don't think their aim is to match or top anything they've done previously. I think they just wanted to make a low-articulation, well-painted play toy for kids and adult collectors who aren't necessarily as picky or particular about what they end up buying. For Hasbro it's a win-win I guess. They save plenty of tooling money by giving each figure only five POA and if even some or half of these Battle Packs sell they're still making fat cash.
