Parallel to the release of Disney+’s The Book of Boba Fett – the long-awaited spin-off series spawned by The Mandalorian – NERF has now unveiled its latest collaboration with the Star Wars universe. This time around, it takes the form of the iconic bounty hunter’s equally recognisable EE-3 carbine blaster rifle.
Measuring up to 30 inches (76 centimetres) in a 1:1 scale, this meticulously detailed and fully-assembled NERF replica captures both the look and feel of being an operator as feared as Boba Fett. As you’ll note thanks to the imagery below, it features a mechanism that allows you to quick-load removable drums.
The complete set comes with three removable drums, each one with a capacity of four Accustrike Elite foam darts – designed for maximum accuracy. And while it only comes with a total of 12 projectiles, those of you already stocked with pre-existing NERF Elite darts will be happy to hear they’re perfectly compatible.

NERF’s replica of the EE-3 carbine blaster file wielded by Boba Fett also features an electronic scope with an LED-illuminated lens, as well as show-accurate blaster sound effects. The only real drawback of these aspects is that it does require two 1.5v AAA alkaline batteries which – you guessed it – aren’t included. Because they never are.
“The Book of Boba Fett finds legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett (portrayed by Temuera Morrison) and mercenary Fennec Shand (portrayed by Ming-Na Wen) navigating the galaxy’s underworld when they return to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate,” reads the official product description.
“With his customised Mandalorian armour, deadly weaponry, and silent demeanour, Boba Fett was one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy – imagine scouring the galaxy for bounties with the NERF LMTD Star Wars Boba Fett’s EE-3 blaster.”
Ready to rule with an iron fist? Preorder the NERF Boba Fett EE-3 carbine blaster rifle below via EBGames for those of you in Australia (and via Hasbro Pulse for those of you residing everywhere else). The window to secure your very own is, however, limited. So as usual: run, don’t walk.
