Hi guys! Today I’m reviewing a LEGO Star Wars Buildable Figure – 75533 Boba Fett! This 144-piece set stands at about 25 cm tall and retails for £25.99 (UK), $29.99 (U.S.), $44.99 (Aus), and $59.99 (NZ), so is quite a bit more expensive than buildable figures around this size. Hopefully the model of a popular character can justify the price increase. Let’s find out! While Jango Fett was one of the first CCBS figures to be released, Boba Fett was not released as a CCBS figure until now. I think this figure has been well worth the wait, as it looks great overall. He has a printed shoulder pad with the Mandalorian insignia on it, as well as printed lower leg panels His chest piece has the iconic Mandalorian battle armor style, though unfortunately it has been split up more due to the inherent mold of the chest piece itself.
Boba Fett’s helmet mold, like most buildable figure helmet molds, looks phenomenal. It is sand green with black and dark red highlights, and even has a dent in the forehead which is accurate. There’s a rangefinder clipped on made out of three pieces. It can be hinged up and down, just like on the minifigure version and in the movie. Boba is armed with his iconic EE-3 Carbine Rifle. This LEGO version uses the regular LEGO CCBS blaster mold but has a brick-built stock added at the back to give it the EE-3 Carbine Rifle shape. Also, in this shot, you can see there are two brick-built pouches clipped on around his waist, as well as a simulated harpoon launcher on his left arm.The blaster, like all CCBS blasters with this mold, has a spring-loaded shooter inside. There’s a trigger at the bottom which you can pull to fire the missile.
Here’s a look at the back of the figure. His jetpack is made out of Technic pieces but I think it is much too colorful for my tastes. Some images I’ve found show his jetpack to be blue and yellow, while others show it as fully green. Even if the designers were basing it off the blue and yellow version, the colors should be much more muted — dark blue would have been a much better choice.
There is a flick-fire missile incorporated into the jetpack. Pressing the axle at the base launches the missile, firing off the missile.
And despite the presence of one cloth element, you can still pose Boba in all sorts of poses.
All in all, I think this figure is good, but is much too overpriced. Older CCBS figures at this size used to cost £19.99 (UK), $24.99 (U.S.), $39.99 (Aus), and $44.99 (NZ), so I’m not sure why LEGO increased the price.
