Looks Like That Star Wars Hot Toys Boba Fett 1/4 Scale We Thought Was Fake, Was Is In Fact Legit


A while ago we thought that a dodgy scan of  a large Boba Fett was a fake, looks like it was real as this is a scan from Hot Toys Magazine. Expect more soon (plsu more on Iron Man MK42 from Age Of Ultron) as it becomes available at the Toy Soul convention.

Star Wars Gentle Giant 6" Figure Vintage Collection Coming? Boba Fett Seen In Hand In New Video.


Unless staff at Gentle Giant have really big hands (they are Giants I suppose) here's proof that a 6" Painted Vintage Boba Fett exists. Now why showcase or tease that  product (amongst other items such as a Han Solo & Tie Fighter pilot non vintage) in their new video?

Vintage is sure to come back in 2015 in Jabba size proportions. I'm laying money on it. However, a maybe $30-$40 price point line of 6" Vintage figures could just cause fanboy wet dreams across the globe. 

We discuss this and much, much more in the latest episode of The Realm Recap.
