Toyguide Update: Ralph McQuarrie Concept Artist Series Boba Fett Statue

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today as we take a look at the  Ralph McQuarrie Concept Artist Series Boba Fett Statue from Sideshow Collectibles.

PROS: An absolutely stunning rendition of Ralph McQuarrie’s concept for the super commando Boba Fett. The application of the paint to bring out the definition in the armor and flight suit is fantastic. The pose is dynamic and looks as if it’s ready to leap off of the Slave I inspired base. This version includes the exclusive, iconic T-visor helmet that can be switched out for the original design of the Boba Fett helmet, which I find preferable for display.

CONS: Price is the biggest obstacle that collectors will encounter with this piece.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery to judge for yourself whether this piece is worth adding to your collection.

Sideshow Collectibles is now taking preorders for their Concept Artist Series Ralph McQuarrie Darth Vader Statue.

Sideshow spends a lot of our time creating 3D representations of some of the most recognizable pop-culture icons in the world and, for that reason, we are honored to present the Ralph McQuarrie Darth Vader Statue – part of our Concept Artist Series.

Ralph McQuarrie is the man who gave us the design and visual representation of Darth Vader, and our statue has been created based on his original illustrations featuring an alternate concept helmet.

Standing just under two feet tall, this polystone piece is our homage to the man who gave us one of the most amazing characters to ever take the screen.

McQuarrie Boba Fett Statue Pre-Order

Sideshow is now taking preorders for the Ralph McQuarrie Boba Fett statue.

One of the first new characters to be designed for The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett originally began as a super trooper, with a striking aesthetic inspired primarily by Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers. As McQuarrie worked closely alongside Star Wars Art Director Joe Johnston, the character evolved into the ruthless Mandalorian bounty hunter we know today. Capturing the spirit of these early explorations, Fett appears in his original all-white armor, leaping into action over a base inspired by the Slave I. Reviewing a broad spectrum of McQuarrie’s imaginative designs for Boba Fett, Sideshow’s artists have translated his iconic artwork in a brilliant homage to a Star Wars that is both familiar, yet never was.
