I was just wondering who has assembled the 12" set of 6 bounty hunters: Boba Fett, Bossk, IG-88, Zuckuss, 4-LOM, and Dengar. In addition, which is your favorite out of the six?

I have the electronic Fett, Bossk, Zuckuss, and Dengar. Hopefully I'll snag an IG-88 off EBay within the next few months. I have come across 4-LOM recently, but could not bring myself to shell out the $10 he'd been marked down to in order to add him to my 12" collection.

Hasbro seems to have done a very good job with these guys, except for poor old 4-LOM. The ones I have display very well.

Fett and Zuckuss tie for first place with me. Bossk barely edges out Dengar for second. IG-88 is supposed to be very nice, but since I don't have him yet I can't rate him.

That's 6 bounty hunters. :)

I passed on 4-LOM and am now looking for a good deal on ebay. I never got a Fett. I have the other four, and Bossk is my favorite.

I have all 6 displayed similar to the ESB scene. I use the electronic Boba also instead of the CS one, and I'd say he is my fave with IG-88 and Dengar 2nd.

Getting IG-88 off eBay shouldn't be to hard. I've seen him go for as little as 8 bucks non mint box or loose.

Yeah, I got my IG88 off ebay for $12, well worth it as this is one kick-*** figure with surprisingly great articulation. His legs extend, so he's way taller than the others too.

Oh yeah, I have the 6 setup like they were in ESB (w/elec Boba) too. It's hard for me to pick a favorite, but Bossk would probably be the one. Just an awesome figure with great attention to detail. 4-Lom is definitely the worst, but you gotta have him to complete the set. I paid $10 for mine at Frank-n-Sons.

I have the complete 6 as well but haven't set them up as in ESB yet. That would require a reorganization of my shelves and I haven't been up to that recently.

Of the 6 I think Bossk is my favorite followed closely by IG-88.

The bounty hunters have always been my favorite. I've got all 6, and fett & bossk were always my favs. After getting the 12" versions, however, I was really impressed with Zuckuss & Dengar. The IG-88 was surprising, also, and the details on Bossk are amazing -- I just wish he was a little taller.

Being a Fett fan it kills me to say this. . .

Of the six 12" figures. . . I feel Fett, and 4-LOM are the worst. 4-LOM is pretty plain to begin with, so you can't expect much, but Fett. You can tell it was an early release in the line because the quality isn't at the same level as the other bounty hunters are. Bossk is great looking, from the outfit to the sculpt. IG-88 is also wonderful, and the extendable legs make him tower over all the others like he should. The last two. . . Dengar and Zuckuss are also wonderful sculpts. If you are looking for a really good diaroma of the six, I would try to get your hands on a Marmit Boba Fett. It is much more acurate, and looks 10 times better than the original 'Collector's Series' release. Sucks that it is so pricey. . . but it is miles ahead of the other versions of Fett.

Yeah man, I really want one of those Marmits... But I KNOW once I shell out the $150.00 for it, Hasbro will release an "Ultimate Boba Fett" (like the Ult Jango Fett).

I have seen some really nice customs, where ppl used parts from 12' Boba & repainted Ult Jango armor/gauntlets on ebay. These were pretty nice too, but as good customs go, they can get pretty expensive as well.

C'mon Hasbro, give us an Ultimate Boba Fett already!!!!

I've arranged all six with Aurra Sing just because she seems to fit in. ;) that's 7 bounty hunters if you count her.

No Jango?!! :eek:

I've been thinking about putting her next to Jango, but....she's just too Barbie looking. :( (She's currently in exile in my closet.)

9 if you include the 'version' of Zam
10 would be Boush

Doesn't Greedo count as well? That would make 11.

Mine are displayed like ESB also. My fav I think is Bossk. IMO he is one of the more accurate representations in 3 lines (Kenner, POTF2 and 12"). Even my mom, who doesn't like my collection, likes Bossk.

I would like to see an Ultimate Boba also, but I would hope that the way the leg armor fits would be improved.

Well, Boba doesn't have leg armor, aside from the knee pads. So that shouldn't be much problem.

Is IG-88 as tall as the electronic Vader?

Actually, he's about an inch taller than the elec Vader. They did a really good job on the IG88!

All I have to say is where are my 12" Banthas? Or maybe a 12" Jabba the Hutt relative to the other in size. I would love to place my 12" slave leia on Jabba, with C-3PO (with Jabba slime on side of head). I could do the whole Jabba's palace in 12" scale. I'm so excited about the possibility. OOps, I just wet my pants for getting so excited.

Taller than Vader? Is that to scale with the movie?

I got the six, got the electronic fett rather than the shrunken head Fett, and they look great. Hats off Hasbro, right now with such picks and detail (Zuckuss) the 12" line is surpassing the excitement meter than the 3 3/4 figs.

The only one I'm missing is Bossk. Hopefully i can pick him up at Wizard World this year for a fair price.

He's definitely taller. In this pic, he looks about as tall as Vader. But you can also see he's standing a step below Vader and the other hunters.

Thanks for that, vadersfist. Glad they made the fig. to scale!

Can anyone point me to an online retailer that has the POTJ Bounty Hunters for $19.99 or less? Everyone seems to be selling these for over $24.99.

Any help would be great!

$24.99 isn't too bad for aftermarket. You should be able to score Dengar & Zuckuss at retail price, and 4-lom for clearance prices (seen him as low as $10.00 in the box). As far as Bossk, IG-88, and Boba Fett $24.99 isn't so bad.

If you're a loose collector, I would suggest ebay. Like I said in a earlier post here, I got my IG-88 off ebay for $12.00.

Hope this helps!:)

I have them, but can't get myself to open them. I need to pick up a loose set.
