After seeing The Empire Strikes Back for the first time (in a theater, no less), I became obsessed with the mysterious Boba Fett. I got the action figure and toy replica of Slave I. I got the Underoos. I even named my cat Boba Fett. But never did I dream that one day I could own a life-size Boba Fett figure.
That's could, not would, as it's nearly impossible to imagine paying $8,500 for this Boba Fett Life-Size Figure from Sideshow Collectibles.
Make no mistake, it looks amazing; it's just a bit outside of my price range. Standing 6.5 feet tall, the figure is meticulously detailed and shockingly life-like: "... Boba Fett is decked out from head to toe in an authentic replica of his Mandalorian armor, featuring an articulated helmet with adjustable rangefinder, intricately detailed fabric costume and utility belt, a light-up chest panel, and braided Wookiee scalp accessories. Armed with a blaster at the ready, and another holstered at his hip, the resourceful mercenary is equipped with his signature jetpack and keeps various tools of the trade stashed in his pockets."
It's available for preorder now from Sideshow. If someone was considering buying me a belated birthday gift, I wouldn't be disappointed with this.
