Gentle Giant has announced today their next SDCC Exclusive: the Prototype Boba Fett Mini Bust.

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 is available now for preorder for Premier Guild Members and retails for $120.00
