Like a bantha, Boba Fett was large and in charge when he rocketed back into action during the second season of The Mandalorian. His armor was worn from the Tattooine sun and sand, but it still fit … kind of.
OK, Fett didn’t look that great as far as how the costume fit, but Robert Rodriguez made sure Boba’s return to action was full of jetpack and violence in Chapter 14: The Tragedy. The temporary setup looks decent when looking at the whole ensemble in static form.
Sideshow Collectibles is producing a new Premium Format Figure based on Fett’s look in The Mandalorian. With gaffi stick, blaster, and jetpack in tow, this 22.38″ tall figure is going for $650. Boba Fett will be flying his thick self into homes between December 2022 and February 2023.
The Boba Fett Premium Format Figure is fully sculpted and features detailed paint application to recreate the weathered state of his salvaged armor. This polystone Star Wars statue includes both an unhelmeted and helmeted portrait, allowing you to unmask the infamous mercenary or complete his iconic look. Boba comes fully equipped for battle with his jetpack, a gaffi stick™, and a blaster pistol. Finally, with intricate cloth-like textures and dynamic motion designed into the pants and sash of his costume, Boba Fett is ready to join the fight in your collection.
The statue is made from polystone and ABS. Fett atop his base stands 22.38″ tall, 15″ wide, and 14″ deep. There are no fabric parts here, which is unexpected considering much of Fett’s outfit was made from cloth in this episode. It’s evident that everything is molded and a bit light on texturing. Maybe the finished product will look a bit more convincing.
