SDCC2015 Proto Boba Fett Mini Bust 001

Gentle Giant has revealed their latest San Diego Comic-Con 2015 Exclusive. They will be offering a Star Wars Prototype Boba Fett Mini Bust. The 1/6 scale bust will also be available to Premier Guild Members who cannot attend SDCC. Price and edition size have not been revealed just yet. Details from Gentle Giant:

In the summer of 1980, The Empire Strikes Back introduced us to one of modern cinemas most recognizable characters, Boba Fett. A man of few words, the gritty bounty hunter quickly made his mark despite having roughly 3 minutes of screen time in his debut film. The character had long been teased by Lucasfilm as far back as 1978, appearing in animated form and as a costumed character in parades and special events across the country.

It was a filmed screen test in early 1978 where we saw an early prototype of Fett that featured sleek all white armor over an off-white jump suit. This costume was rumored to be a “Super Stormtrooper” design that saw the character designed to be a kind of elite, special forces Imperial Trooper, better trained and equipped than regular foot soldiers. In the end, this concept was abandoned and Fett became the rogue bounty hunter we all know today.

Gentle Giant Ltd. is pleased to announce the exclusive Boba Fett-Prototype mini-bust to our collectors for San Diego Comicon 2015. Featuring polished white armor, unique blaster and minute details that set him apart from the bounty hunter version of Fett, this mini-bust is a must have addition for those looking to add a piece of early Fett history to their Star Wars/Gentle Giant Ltd. collection.

If you are not planning on attending San Diego Comic Con 2015, but still wish to purchase the Prototype Boba Fett Mini Bust, then join the Gentle Giant Ltd Premier Guild today!!! Not only will your membership allow you to purchase this exclusive item, but you will also receive 10% off all regular release items, access to past PGM items, access to future exclusives, and one of the below mini busts of your choice!!!

SDCC First Appearance Boba Fett $50.00, limit one per customer, sold ONLY at SDCC at the JAKKS booth in the Lucasfilm area

Boba Fett, Legendary Mandalorian Bounty Hunter has a long and colorful history. While many fans remember him from The Empire Strikes Back as well as his animate debut in The Star Wars Holiday Special, his true first appearance was as a member of the Star Wars delegation in the San Anselmo County Fair on September 24, 1978! At the time, Lucasfilm was headquartered at 52 Park Way in San Anselmo, about twenty minutes north of San Francisco. As part of harvest parade, Darth Vader and for the first time in public, Boba Fett, marched throughout the street waving to fans of all ages. The armor was worn by assistant film editor Duwayne Dunham and featured several noticeable difference such as the brightly colored blue jump suit, yellow and red armor highlights, as well as the “tribal marks” on his helmet; all altered for his later film appearances. JAKKS Pacific is excited to celebrate this legendary character and offer an articulated action figure of First Appearance Boba Fett or the first time ever!
