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