Bossk was actually my favorite of the Bounty Hunters. Even more than Boba Fett!

The whole series is sweet!

I was incredibly excited to see these come out 4 years ago, and it started me collecting Star Wars figures again after years of disinterest.

The rest of the 30th Anniversary Vintage Original Trilogy Collection from 2004 was great as well, and well worth picking up.

Within the last 4 years, Hasbro's made a bunch of really excellent super-articulated figures, well worth the price of purchase. The line Bossk is from (known as the Vintage line) was $10 each, and since 2004, they've been re-issuing most of them for $7 a piece, in the regular line, or in 2 or 3-packs.

Just like everything modern star wars figures, it gets very confusing to track all these "DX" figures down due to the different line names, large amount of releases, and misleading packages. If you'd like to know more, most any Star Wars figure site has all the names, pictures, and info you'll need to start hunting them down.

I was impressed to get such kid-proof AND highly detailed figures from Hasbro after the 90's brought tons of ugly, overpriced figures in the star wars line.

I've been buying a lot of them, so far I've gotten most of the major characters from the film. I'd say the best hands-down is HAN SOLO from STAR WARS, it is perhaps the best Star Wars figure EVER created. The worst being poor OLD OBI-WAN KENOBI (skip him! he was horrible!)

I really like it when you, Josh, and COLLECTIONDX in general, review items other than just robots. You tend to review things i would consider to be "DX" like these special SW guys, or the 1:6-Scale figures. It's a welcome change of pace from Power Rangers, Movie Transformers, and Revoltech (but really, who can live without Transformers, the Rangers, or Revoltech?) and I hope the trend continues! I've always used CDX as a "buying guide" not just for new releases, but to see which is the "best version" of a character, like Mazinger Z, Voltes, or in this case, Bossk.

Cheers!

Thanks. As someone who does

Thanks. As someone who does have interests outside of robots (such as monsters), I sure like hearing that! I'd do more Star Wars or super hero stuff myself, but I just can't be buying that kind of stuff on top of my other hobbies. Money and space prohibits it!

He is definitely one of the best Star Wars figures of all time. To keep things fairly robotic, the vintage IG-88 figures is also pretty good and almost as pose-able.

I'm ready for a Zuckuss update! (
