Photo Guide: Slave I

I think it’s safe to say that the set I’ve been most excited to get my hands on is Boba Fett’s Slave I, so with it finally in hand, it will make a great start for my Photo Guide.

The Slave I Cinema Scene was released in late 2009 and includes 3 pieces:  Boba Fett,  Han in Carbonite, and of course the Slave I itself.  Boba Fett is the ESB version, meaning he has green gauntlets, but he is a resculpt from the previously released version.  Han is also a new version — the carbonite block is only 1/4″ thick compared to the older 1/2″ thick one.  Fett sits nicely in the cockpit and can be held in place with the footpeg. When the wings are rotated, the seat rotates as well, and as long as Fett’s blaster is tucked in, there’s no problem performing the rotation.  Han in Carbonite actually slips in through the bottom of the ship and it’s a pretty tight fit.  I found that sliding him in head first prevented him from getting jammed in there and he was still reasonably removable.  The other bit of articulation on the Slave I is the guns — they’ll also rotate depending on which way you want the ship facing.

If you open the packaging carefully, you’ll get a background of Cloud City for display.  It should even last a little while for kids to enjoy it for play purposes, though of course the cardboard will have a fairly limited life.

Overall, I have to say it’s a fantastic set.

Quick summary of included pieces:

  • Boba Fett – ESB (green gauntlets), bent arm – new sculpt
  • Han in Carbonite – 1/4″ thick – new sculpt
  • Slave I

Bagged Singles in Europe

GHBags125x125These were released a few months ago, but I’ve finally been able to track down some details about the bagged single Galactic Heroes.  They were only released in Europe, which is reflected by the Spanish and Italian packaging.

Each figure is randomly packed, but the baggie allows you to easily feel the figure inside, which is rather handy for focus collectors.  A neat addition to each package is a trading card, showing a picture of the figure on one side and a piece of a poster on the back side — collect all of the cards and you get the complete poster!

There are 24 figures in all, and it appears that they are all repacks so there are no exclusive repaints to worry about finding.  However, I don’t know if each case has all 24 figures (or if the case has enough room for that many to begin with).

Here’s a breakdown of the figures to be found:

  • Anakin Skywalker
  • Battle Droid
  • Boba Fett
  • C-3PO
  • Chewbacca
  • Clone Trooper
  • Count Dooku
  • Darth Maul
  • Darth Vader
  • Durge
  • Emperor
  • General Grievous
  • Han Solo
  • Jango Fett
  • Jar Jar Binks
  • Luke Skywalker – Tatooine
  • Luke Skywalker – Hoth
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi – ROTS
  • Padme Amidala
  • Qui-Gon Jinn
  • R2-D2
  • Stormtrooper
  • Super Battle Droid
  • Yoda
