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.
