Gentle Giant has opened up pre-orders for their new Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back – Bossk Collectors Gallery Statue. The 1/8 scale statue will stand at 9.5″ tall. It is scheduled for release in the fourth quarter of the year. It’s priced at $159. You can pre-order it Here. Read on for the new photos.
The bounty hunter known as Bossk has been a fan favorite ever since his debut in 1980. His popularity could not be contained to his brief appearance on the deck of the Executor in the Empire Strikes Back (and in the background of Jabba’s sail barge in Return of the Jedi). Bossk soon started filling out his robust backstory in both the Star Wars: Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels animated series, taking on the role of mentor to the young, orphaned Boba Fett. The artists a Gentle Giant take you on a journey to see the moments just following the events of the death of Jabba, we find Bossk standing over the shattered throne of Jabba. At his feet, a chain left by Jabba’s escaped prize. What will he do next? Pursue the rebels or look for his next bounty? Bossk is the third statue in our new 1:8th Collector’s Gallery line, celebrating 40 years of the Star Wars universe. Each limited edition, hand-painted piece is cast in high quality polyresin with crisp details. This statue also comes individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity.
