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.

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

So, after some quick prototyping (pun intended) I came up with a nice design to complement Chris’s work. Click on through for a complete gallery of images.
