Cons Of The Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back – Boba Fett Legends in 3-Dimensions Bust
I figured let’s get the cons out of the way first. The good thing about this Boba Fett bust is that there are not a lot of cons to it. You can check out the cons below.
- The visor part of my statue has a couple of rough paint areas. They are hard to see until you get up close to the statue so they don’t take away from the look of the bust.
- The range finder does not move so you will have to find a more open space for the Boba Fett bust.
