Patrick B. shares with us an image via Facebook regarding the packaging for the Disney Store Exclusive Talking Boba Fett. As you can see, the product reference image on the back of the box is missing some key elements of the figure. Click the image above for a closer look.
Received my Disney Talking Boba Fett. Well-packed and in perfect condition. Great figure at 13.5″. Attached is a shot of the box back. I found it interesting that it’s the mock-up figure missing key items (I marked them).
Still miffed that the 6″ Black Series Jabba figures don’t include a proper dais? Alleviate that frustration and build your own! This DIY tutorial popped up on my feed today from The Fwoosh that is really worth a look. The materials are easy enough to come by, and best of all, a minimal amount of skill is required.
Marvel.com posts a follow up today of the Star Wars Omnibus announcement with the reveal of the Greg Hildebrandt variant cover.
Newsarama has posted an interview with team members from Disney Interactive regarding future product additions to the Disney Infinity game. During the final exchange there is a blatant implication of Star Wars characters coming in 2015.
Nrama: Very cool! I like to end things on a tease, so is there something you’re excited about, maybe a little down the road?
Vignocchi: Well I did my tease today. My favorite character is one that has not yet been announced. It’s a female character. A Disney character. And we will not tell retail who it is for a very long time in order to keep it a secret!
Blackburn: I like your other tease better. “We can talk about the future, but that’s far, far away.”
Vignocchi: 2015 is not so far, far away anymore, is it?

Yakface reader “J A” writes in with his latest acquisition:
My Disney Store Fett arrived today. It’s as good as I was hoping. Still, it’s a little strange to hear Jango’s voice come out of it…
Nice score “J A”!
