In the summer of 1980, The Empire Strikes Back introduced us to one of modern cinemas most recognizable characters, Boba Fett. A man of few words, the gritty bounty hunter quickly made his mark despite having roughly 3 minutes of screen time in his debut film. The character had long been teased by Lucasfilm as far back as 1978, appearing in animated form and as a costumed character in parades and special events across the country.
It was a filmed screen test in early 1978 where we saw an early prototype of Fett that featured sleek all white armor over an off-white jump suit. This costume was rumored to be a “Super Stormtrooper” design that saw the character designed to be a kind of elite, special forces Imperial Trooper, better trained and equipped than regular foot soldiers. In the end, this concept was abandoned and Fett became the rogue bounty hunter we all know today.
Gentle Giant Ltd. is pleased to announce the exclusive Boba Fett-Prototype mini-bust to our collectors for San Diego Comicon 2015. Featuring polished white armor, unique blaster and minute details that set him apart from the bounty hunter version of Fett, this mini-bust is a must have addition for those looking to add a piece of early Fett history to their Star Wars/Gentle Giant Ltd. collection.
