Boba Fett

hot toys boba fett 1

It seems like Hot Toys only exists for one purpose: to drain our bank accounts. One of their newest collectibles is a quarter scale Episode VI Boba Fett. I admit that I’m not the biggest fan of the character, but I can’t deny that he’s popular with the Star Wars crowd or that this collectible figure is insanely detailed.

Fett is fully decked out in armor, accessories, and weapons. Hot Toys shared the following on their Facebook page:

The highly-accurate quarter-scale collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Boba Fett in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi featuring finely sculpted Boba Fett helmet and armor, his signature jetpack, highly detailed weapons, accessories, and a specially designed sail barge figure stand all with skillfully-applied distressed effects. A special edition will be available for selected markets and include a blaster sidearm with holster which Boba Fett has in Star Wars: Episode V Empire Strikes Back.

There are all kinds of car wraps out there, but this one is easily one of our favorites. It’s a simple black Hyundai Veloster that has been turned into Boba Fett by Rebekah Steig Knuth who came up with the design for her own car. She’s a graphic designer at FastSigns of Appleton and she digitally created the wrap which was then transferred to vinyl. I’m thinking she’s Boba Fett’s number one fan.

See more pictures and a video of the wrap being applied after the break.

January 1, 2015 can’t get here soon enough. That’s the day we can finally purchase the Lego UCS (Ultimate Collector Series) Slave I. The pics of the Lego take on Boba Fett’s preferred mode of intergalactic transport were enough to get us really excited about it, but Lego has recently released the following video which features Hans Schlömer showing it off. Look how huge it is!

Check out the video after the break…

LEGO has done versions of Boba Fett’s ship before, but none of them have looked quite like this. The new Slave I will be out this fall and features 1,996 pieces. Eurobricks user just2good shared the first images of the box, bricks, and minifigs, and I can’t get over how slick it looks. The ship comes with Boba Fett, Han in Carbonite, a Stormtrooper, and a Bespin guard.

Ladies and gentlemen, we live in a world where you can purchase multiple life-size Boba Fett statues. You can go for a realistic-looking option or this statue based on the retro Kenner action figure. The 3 3/4 inch action figure was digitally scanned and scaled up to a whopping 6 feet tall. This life-sized toy is scheduled to ship in quarter three of 2015.

Check out a few more pictures after the break.

Do you need the best of the best to track down a bounty? Look no further than this Boba Fett statue from Sideshow Collectibles. The life-size figure stands at 6.5 feet tall and is incredibly detailed.

Fett comes with the following: “authentic replica of his Mandalorian armor, featuring an articulated helmet with adjustable rangefinder, intricately detailed fabric costume and utility belt, a light-up chest panel, and braided Wookiee scalp accessories.”

He also has weapons and helpful tools inside his pockets. And yes, he would look good next to their life-sized Han Solo in carbonite statue.

Pre-order now to receive Boba Fett in September. More photos of the bounty hunter after the break.

This mash-up comes from the mind of deviantArtist HeroforPain who had the idea to create a series based on what would happen if all the fictional worlds imploded creating a new world. In this image, he’s combined Boba Fett and Grumpy Cat but if you look closely at his armor you’ll see nods to other fictional worlds. And check out those ruby slippers on Grumpy Cat’s feet.

Star Wars 1313 met its untimely fate earlier this week with the unfortunate shutdown of LucasArts. The game was going to focus on the lower levels of Coruscant where every type of grisly crime you can imagine happens. It’s a different world down there with gangsters, thieves, killers, and bounty hunters. According to Kotaku’s source, it was going to center on Boba Fett.

The source says George Lucas specified last May that the game should focus on Fett. Though I’m bummed to see the game cancelled and to see LucasArts shuttered, I can’t say that I’ll miss a game about that bounty hunter. I know he’s a popular character, but any time the phrase bounty hunter is mentioned in the Star Wars Expanded Universe it’s usually followed by Fett. Leave some mystery and focus on other characters; it’s a big galaxy!

Regardless of my feelings, I can’t deny the concept art shown above is striking. Check out another image after the break.

The uber talented Michael McClane is at it again with a gorgeous stained glass design. He’s created a lovely panel featuring the ever popular Mandalorian, Boba Fett. It’s 30″ tall and 8″ wide, and it was cut and assembled so it looks like a Tiffany Lamp. Yes, it does match his stained glass Boba Fett helmet lamp to a tee. If I were rich and less of a klutz, I would cover my house in panels like this!

Vinyl Boba Fett

Yeah, that’s Boba Fett, although you might be wondering why the bad-ass bounty hunter from Star Wars is sporting some extra curves on his head and body. Created by Brooklyn street artist and designer Brian Donnelly (aka “KAWS”), the overall form and design of the figure is based on another one of his characters called Companion. You’ll get what I mean when you check out what KAWS’ Companion looks like.

The figure will be released online on KAWSONE.com on January 26th, 2013.
