#69: Star Wars Saga Legends Bossk

For a while now, the Saga Legends sub-line has been a way to keep older figures of popular characters in rotation. For the past couple of years, they have been including a bunch of random guns. For the 2010 re-launch, the Saga Legends figures have a new gimmick: a battle game. Each figure comes with a die and a card that lists their scores in various attributes such as Force ability and luck. Each side of the die corresponds to one of the attributes. Each player rolls the die, checks the appropriate attribute, and whichever player comes up with the highest value wins. Each player uses three figures, and it goes on until one remains. It's a pretty simple game, and I haven't played it yet. It doesn't sound too exciting, but it is cool that Hasbro is including extra value with the figures. There is apparently going to be a mail away offer for a game mat and bonus figure later this year. The Saga Legends figures continue to include a bunch of random guns, but now they are different random guns than were previously included.

As I mentioned earlier, Hasbro is making all the bounty hunters available at the same time, so I was able to pick up Bossk, putting me one lizard spaceman closer to completing the collection. Bossk has a very simple appeal. He's a lizard spaceman. All he gets to do onscreen is look menacing (he doesn't take kindly to slights on his profession), but it's enough for him to have become my favorite of the bounty hunters that aren't Boba Fett. As a figure, this is probably the best Bossk you'll ever be able to get, so I'd say he is easily worth picking up.


  1. Yeah, that's the same Bossk I have, and you are's likely the best one they will make. The only thing I didn't like about him was that his hands were accurate. H needs pegs or something to hold his gun on. I always end up leaving the rubber bands on.

  2. Bossk doesn't need guns, he can go hand to hand! Or claw.
