Micro Machines Slave I Transforming Action Set

September 27, 2010

This is one of the last Jabba-related Micro Machines items that I had to check off my list. This is Boba Fett’s ship, of course, but they decided to make it open up into some Tatooine scenes, including the infamous one where Han Solo talks to Jabba at Mos Eisley Spaceport.

It’s actually a pretty decent ship in its non-transformed state. It has firing lasers and could be used as a toy ship in and of itself. When you open it up, it breaks into three sections.

On the left is a Jawa, sandcrawler, droids, and a Ronto. The Ronto moves its leg as you move it, and if you move the Jawa to the right, the droids are revealed.

In the center is a spring-loaded T-16 skyhopper and some pop-up womp rats that get pushed down as the ship flies past.

And finally, on the right is Jabba and Han talking next to the Millennium Falcon. You can turn the droid behind them to rotate them back and forth. One thing I do like about these Micro Machines pieces is that from what I can tell, they always made new sculpts for the Jabbas they used, instead of recycling the same figure.

Notice anything missing? Yep, no Boba Fett figure. That seems like a pretty odd choice considering that this is Boba Fett’s ship. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised, considering that Galoob made Jabba’s head turn into Mos Eisley Spaceport, and R2-D2 turn into Jabba’s Palace. Boba Fett does appear in one of the stickers in the background, though.
