It’s weird to think that Boba Fett took over forty years to get his own standalone gig. Apart from comics and books, the mysterious bounty hunter kept getting sidelined. Then along came The Mandalorian‘s second season, and we get the Book of Boba Fett teaser. I’m not going to scoff. Just give me the series already!
Celebrating that brief post-credit scene, Iron Studios is releasing two statues showing off Boba Fett’s new digs, new paint job, and new … partner? Check out the standard version of the statue below we found at Figures.com.
Boba sits atop a throne once Bib Fortuna’s, which was in turn on top of Jabba’s reclining couch in the palace. So how did Bib escape the explosion at the Great Pit of Carkoon? Maybe that will be explained in the Book of Boba Fett. The throne is plain, but the two rancor heads are cool details.
The prices are quite different between the standard and deluxe editions. The standard release, which only includes Boba on the throne, is $199.99. If you want Fennec Shand in the deluxe edition, that will run $349.99. About $150 extra for one extra person feels a bit pricy. However, if the quality of this prototype is represented in the retail release, I’d say it’s worth it. The sculptor who did Ming-Na Wen’s face got it spot on.
Iron Studios has not started the pre-order process yet. Usually, there’s about a month between the initial press release and an official launch with these announcements. So, keep an eye on Iron Studios’ website for updates.
Do you think Fennec deserves her own statue? Let us know in the comments.
