For avid Star Wars buffs looking for the ultimate showpiece, the Sideshow Collectibles Boba Fett Life-Size Figure should more than suffice. In addition to being able to feast their eyes on the equally colossal 1:1-scale vintage Stormtrooper that guards the premises, visitors to the Hot Toys’ flagship Tokyo retail shop in Harajuku, Toy Sapiens, have the unique opportunity to get up close and personal with the iconic bounty hunter as relatively few have before.
At over six and a half feet tall, Sideshow’s Boba Fett Life-Size Figure is immediately striking. Once up close with the momentous collectible, it’s evident that it has more to offer than just lofty dimensions. Sideshow’s creative team went to great lengths to recreate the enigmatic Star Wars character with the company’s typical level of exacting detail. Boba Fett is adorned in his familiar weathered cloth outfit (complete with cargo pockets stuffed with tools), battle-scarred Mandalorian armor, and missile-launching rocket pack slung on his back. Notable additions include a fully articulated helmet (with a movable range-finder), utility belt, braid, and matching 1:1-scale replica of the fearsome bounty hunter’s blaster rifle. It’s all masterfully sculpted, handsomely painted and sure to satisfy even the most discerning aficionado. Adding to the overall presentation, the Boba Fett Life-Size Figure comes with a light-up platform inspired by the architecture of Cloud City from Star Wars: Episode V.
Boasting ambitious proportions and movie-accurate accouterments, it’s no surprise that owning the Boba Fett Life-Size Figure won’t be accomplished cheaply. Sideshow Collectibles’ attention-grabbing collectible will set devoted Star Wars fangirls and fanboys back a whopping $8,495 USD (plus shipping). Star Wars devotees content with gazing longingly at Sideshow’s super-sized depiction of the iconic bounty hunter should be sure to visit Toy Sapiens when in Tokyo to check it out along with a host of other delectable collectibles that the Hot Toys store has to offer.
