Slave One appears true to any other form I’ve ever owned. Cracked burgundy paint on a sand colored, half teardrop hull. Curved canopy that extends towards the narrowest part of the ships lower hull is grey with light and dark green accents. The canopy opens and you can put the miniature Boba pilot standing in the cockpit. There is nothing to hold him in place so he moves quite a bit. The two guns at the end (this ship is of such unique design it’s hard to label it’s parts but you know where I’m talking about anyway) rotate. The stabilizer fins also rotate and allow the ship to pitch and roll in the atmosphere. On the back of the hull you find two small gold circles that represent the propulsion system, and a larger circle at the top with a peg for the communications array. There is also a missile launcher that flips out and points a spring-loaded missile backwards, not really helpful in vehicle mode.
With the missile launcher sitting on his back Boba looks fairly true to form here as well. T-visored helmet with antennae on the right side, red and yellow patches on a primarily grey uniform of the Mandalorian soldier, the only thing missing are his insignias, no bantha skulls here, they were on the packaging though. The fins became arms, uniquely constructed also, with two possible elbows, the section of the main ship that had the guns is now legs, and the teardrop hull is now a backpack. The legs have knees that don’t quite bend 45 degrees, and the hips are in ball joints but limited in movement due to a flap that extends forward, left over from the excellent vehicle mode. Like I said, the arms tend to pop off, but they have lots of useful joints, shoulder rotates, two elbows (one is on a spring), and a wrist that also rotates. The shoulders are set a little low so they look out of proportion but they can be left slightly up if you skip a step in the transformation.
