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.
