Toyguide Update: Boba Fett (Prototype) Mini Bust (2015 Convention Exclusive)

tg_proto_fett_bust_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today as we take a look at the 2015 Convention Exclusive Boba Fett (Prototype) Mini Bust from Gentle Giant.

PROS:  Thankfully, Gentle Giant chose to create an all-new mini bust for this release rather than do a simple repaint of an existing sculpt – a practice that so many manufacturers employ. Although this piece is stark in its colorization, there is a different hue for the armor to set it apart from the underlying light gray jump suit that conveys a subtle realism to the bust. There is a lot of detail overall, especially in the gauntlets, jet pack and blaster that are highlighted with minimal, yet effective, paint accents and washes. For any Boba Fett fan, this is a must have piece.

CONS: Like the previous Boba Fett (McQuarrie Concept) bust we covered yesterday,  the aftermarket/third party price on this piece is about double the original cost,  but playing the long game on this may yield a bounty for a better price.

Toyguide Update: Boba Fett (McQuarrie Concept) Mini Bust (SDCC 2009 Exclusive)

TG_concept_fett_bust_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today as we take a look at the 2009 SDCC Exclusive Boba Fett (McQuarrie Concept) Mini Bust from Gentle Giant.

PROS:  As a huge fan of anything related to Ralph McQuarrie, this item struck a chord with me back in 2009 although I only just acquired it recently due to my new and expanding “Concept/Prototype Boba Fett” collection of items. The sculpt and details of this piece captures McQuarrie’s original concept masterfully and the inclusion of the swappable helmet is the perfect touch as it give collectors options for displaying. Paint is minimal, yet effective as the overall off-white, egg shell color gives it a used “in-universe” look.

CONS: Long since sold out, the aftermarket/third party prices on this piece are elevated but there are deals out there to be had from time to time. If you really want to add this piece to your collection, I suggest having a “saved search” on eBay.
