Welcome to Echo Base! Thanks for your entry! I think I'd rather have a Boba Fett like yours in my collection over any of the versions Hasbro's given us so far. It looks incredibly detailed and you clearly put lots of time and effort into it. And the Wookiee braids made from Barbie hair is such a creative touch! Very cool. Cool

I agree, that's a great looking Fett... Hasbro really needs to step up and make improvements like this to their next Boba Fett figure.

HERE ARE MY 2 ENTRIES:

Darth rancid, was a sith weapon master that would teach many acolytes how to fight, though
his fate was sealed when he met his end at the hands of a unnamed warrior......

Ka'tar suo, was proud to have someone teach him in the ways of the force, so he learned and
trained by himself......
