    The Boba Fett from the rare Cloud City set. He is extremely rare and if the seller's description is true and he is mint then he is worth even more than the 170£. Great piece of LEGO history

    That's the "Cloud City" Boba Fett from set #10123 Cloud City released in 2002. At the time, compared to other sets, it had a high RRP ($100) compared to its piece count (698), so it wasn't a very popular set. However, the set was very special as there were several exclusive figures in the set (that have never been released in any other set) such as:
    Cloud City Leia
    Cloud City Luke Skywalker
    Cloud City Boba Fett
    Cloud City Lando Calrissian

    All have exclusive printing and/or torsos. Specifically, Boba Fett has printed arms and legs.

    While all command premium prices, Boba Fett is the most expensive as he is one of the most popular Star Wars characters.

    By now, most of us know that you are "into" Lego Minifigures. What you really need to do (take this constructively) is step away and do some hard reseach on Lego Minifigures. We aren't all experts, but some people in this forum know more than others. Knowing what is special about Cloud City Boba Fett is as basic as it gets. The same goes for knowing what is special about the UCS Millennium Falcon.

    There is much more to collecting minifigures than just buying them individually or parting them out of sets, especially when you buy lots off of people. You have to know what to look for.

    £170 is very much on par for the average CC Boba Fett. I doubt many of them went from set to baggie. I my opinion, once you put a Lego minifigure together, it is no longer mint. I know a lot of minifigures some assembled, but I am talking about when the average joe puts one together.

    Ah yes - Cloud City Boba Fett. There's a bit more on him here.

    No matter how much better the new Boba Fetts are; Cloud City Boba Fett will always be unique. I think the older "yellow faced" Star Wars minifigures are much like the vintage Kenner Action Figures. They pale in comparison to new articulated Action Figures, but they are vintage and still highly collectible.
