The name “Boba Fett” is no stranger to the biggest of Star Wars fans. He had very little screen time thought the entire Star Wars series, though his customized Mandalorian armor, deadly weaponry, and silent demeanor have made Boba Fett one of the most popular characters in the galaxy. Following the introduction of Hot Toys’ Star Wars sixth scale figures, they are now very excited to announce the Hot Toys Boba Fett quarter scale figure, which just so happens to be the first Star Wars quarter scale figure from Hot Toys.
The highly-accurate quarter-scale (18-inch) collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Boba Fett in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi featuring finely sculpted Boba Fett helmet and armor, his signature jetpack, highly detailed weapons, accessories, and a specially designed sail barge figure stand all with skillfully-applied distressed effects. A special edition will be available for selected markets and include a blaster sidearm with holster which Boba Fett has in Star Wars: Episode V Empire Strikes Back.
Just like with all of the previous special edition figures, Sideshow Collectibles is going to be the place to get it. It’s going to be interesting to see how fast the special edition sells out, given the size, price, and the fact that it’s Boba Fett – the most notorious bounty hunter of all time.
Pre-order information hasn’t quite been made available, though the figure is said to have an anticipated shipping date of Q3-Q5 2015. Keep your eyes on this page if you want to pre-order this figure when it goes up. Believe me, you aren’t going to want to wait long on this figure to pull the trigger and buy him.
