The other day I bought the new Jabba the Hutt and noticed on the back there were several figures listed, among them Boba Fett (The Pit of Carkoon). I thought this was a bit odd so I took a closer look. Sure enough, while all the other figures listed were 04 series (04/08, 04/09, 04/10, etc) the Fett was listed as 03 it was the only figure listed from 03! More to the point, it was the only figure not in sequence (ie 04/07, 04/08, 04/09, 04/10, etc)!
I wonder why Hasbro did this. The figure is no longer shipping...for the most part, so why frustrate new collectors who will not be able to find this in the stores?
My only conclusion can be that Hasbro wanted to group "Return of the Jedi" figures together to make the package more attractive, either than or Hasbro thinks that pictures of Boba Fett are lucky...LOL
In any event, I thought it was strange.
