Super 7 Prototype Boba Fett

Prototype Boba Fett Box Front

 Super Shogun #5 Boba Fett Prototype Version

The third of the Boba Fett releases is quite unusual, basically a recast of Boba all in white plastic and labeled "Prototype". The sculpt is awesome, as you would expect from a company like Funko with great detailing. The box has Japanese writing on it to pull you back into the Popy era - there's even a Popy-esque logo in blue with Super7 in katakana.

The figure itself has limited articulation, much like the Shogun Warriors it's modeled after. The head turns and arms raise-and-lower. There's a rather fragile range-finder on the helmet that breaks rather easily (ask me how I know?) and rollers under the feet. There's also a missile firing gun mounted on the left arm that fires one of the accompanying two yellow missiles - for some reason there's missile banks that hold two missiles each on each leg but the figure only comes with two?

The massive box itself is a work of art with great iconography - the figure is numbered as #5 in the Super Shogun series. According to the instructions this release was limited to 400 pieces. There's also a very well made outer shipping box that's also marked to help protect the precious cargo inside. In all this is a great addition to the Super Shogun line.
