One look at the Star Wars Movie Realization Figures makes us dream of a Star Wars/samurai crossover film. This isn't as much of a stretch as you might think: the Star Wars films already drew heavily from Japanese samurai cinema. George Lucas has long acknowledged that he was influenced by Akira Kurosawa films, to which the Star Wars films owe part of their visual storytelling and narrative elements. The word "jedi" itself is believed to be derived from the Japanese wordjidaigeki ("period drama"), and parts of Darth Vader's suit design (especially his helmet) came from samurai armor. George Lucas even asked samurai film mainstay Toshiro Mifune to play the part of Obi-Wan Kenobi in A New Hope. Rumor is that when he turned the role down, he was then offered the role of Darth Vader.

This Ronin Samurai Boba Fett figure brings forth an alternate reality where maybe Toshiro Mifune didn't turn down George Lucas's offers, and the samurai influences of the films were taken to the utmost extreme. Sculpted by acclaimed artists Takeyuki Takeya and Junichi Taniguchi, Boba Fett joins the Meisho Movie realization series as a lord-less "Ronin" Samurai. His EE-3 blaster made into a flintlock-style rifle, and he comes with a whole host of other accessories that can be attached to his shins and forearms. Fully articulated with soft plastic parts, he is near-infinitely poseable, so you can recreate any scene from Star Wars or your favorite samurai films.
