Boba Fett was originally released on the 23rd August 2015 as part of the Sony Saga Bundle exclusive which is available for the Playstation 3 & 4 (click here to view it). He is a timed exclusive and will be launched in 2016, as far as we are aware he will be a single figure item. However, originally John Vignocchi (VP of Disney Infinity) announced he would be released in January 2016, however this has now been pushed back to an unknown date for unknown reasons.

If you do not want to wait and you do not want to buy the Saga Bundle, you can purchase Boba Fett as a single figure via Amazon (third party sellers). However these come at a price, for example this one.

Character History: Boba Fett first appeared in the Star Wars Holiday Special, which aired on television in between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. He went on to appear in The Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi. In the 90s he was added retroactively to A New Hope in a small cameo. His origin was explored in Attack of the Clones, as well as the subsequent spin-off cartoon series The Clone Wars.

Boba Fett is rightly known as the deadliest bounty hunter in the galaxy, and is one of the few people that Darth Vader respects. He wears the iconic Mandelorian armor, which he inherited from his father and modified heavily over the years. It is extremely rare that a bounty escapes him, and even the crafty Han Solo was unable to escape him.

Although apparently killed on Tatooine during the escape of Luke Skywalker and his friends from Jabba’ sail barge, it is generally believed that he escaped and is once again at large in the galaxy.

Boba Fett is best described as a glass cannon, in that he can do large amounts of damage but is fairly easy to defeat. His secondary attack is his blaster rifle, and it can fire long bursts at a time with each shot doing heavy damage. His primary attack is a melee punch, but is best used to start combos to activate his combo finisher. This finished has Fett grapple an enemy to him, plant a bomb on them and then kick them away for large area of effect damage. His special attack is a rocket fired from his backpack, which can be upgraded to split while in flight.

In the Toy Box Boba Fett can fly, however this has been reduced to a hovering power in the Star Wars playsets since being able to fly would require redesigning all the levels. He still is fast and effective as a fighter while flying, though, and it is useful for evading large swarms of enemies in a pinch.
