Wow GG is on a roll. This new Boba Fett statue looks quite a bit like the Mini Bust but thats not a bad thing considering thats one of the best pieces in the line. Keep in mind as with all of the SDCC pics this is still a prototype but man does it look good.

Hmmmm.. .for some reason, I'm not that impressed with this prototype. I actually like the Koto Fett better.

If this is what the final product will look like, at least I'll be saving myself around $200. ;)

Yeah it is a prototype photo so I'd imagine some things will change on it Reefer.

I really like this statue but I do have a few issues with it. His left arm looks a little off and it seems to be missing his flamethrower. Also I think the person that took the photo had the flash turned on because it looks a bit to shiny.

Still I'll definitely be picking this one up. Like all of GG's statues I'm sure it will look much better in person.

Yeah, the flashy photo is partly what's turning me off on ths guy. I'm sure the color is a million times better in person.

Not so sure about that pose though, I guess we'll have to see it from some different angles before I can really form an opinion.

Same here Reefer Shark. Its a good looking statue though. The flash makes it look like his pelvis is turned in a bit. I'm sure it isnt and much more impressive in person. I cant wait to see more press images from GG when the time comes. But I'll get one I'm sure.

Hello all,
Newbie here and I'd just like to add my two cents here. The statue is amazing! I was chatting with one of the GG reps and he said that this proto still had tons of work to be done on it and that the finished product would be deserving of the Gentle Giant tradition, To which I could only say WOW!.

Welcome to the boards Jaster. :D

I agree with your comments. I do like what I see but there is obviously more work that needs to be done. I don't doubt for a minute that GG will deliver with the final product.

yeah, there better be some more work done on it. It definitely looked like a very early prototype, as none of the details were there for it.

Dude, it looks way better that the Koto John. You been on that Reefer for too long.;) You know is a really cool Koto, Jango. Man I want that one. Koto Fett is kind of boring. Well so is the GG. Now if they did something like the Unleashed I;m sure we all would go nuts.

On another note, GG Maul Statue is pretty killer too.

Could it be the goofy position that his left arm is in? It doesn't look natural... Boba has a bit of a Bruce Lee thing going on there with his fingers.

I agree, his stance is a little too....silly to me. It's like he's actually posing for the picture instead of a shot that is taken from live action. The statue does look great, it's just the pose I'm not too crazy about.

LOL, yes.... way too long. I still like the Koto better though, mabye it's the reefer ;) I have the Jango too, and he's pretty cool. The paint isn't as nicely done as Fett, but he's in that cool pose with his blasters and all.

That Maul statue does look really nice. Now I'm glad I held off on the Koto Maul. I'm gonna pass on that one, and just get the GG statue.

Yeah his fingers definitely are in a goofy position. Kind of a "cough twice and we're done here" pose. :eek: Still I'd think at least part of the flamethrower would be visable in that position and it isn't. Hopefully its one of the things that is still being worked on.

I'd like to back Reefer Shark up on his Koto Fett comments too. This is without a doubt THE best statue of Boba to date. It may look rather simple but the detail is amazing and it like most statues looks much better in person. One of the lines best pieces and FAR FAR superior to Jango. Just my opinion though. :D

The final pictures look great!!!! I'm still now wild about the pose the right hand is in. (?) Anyways, I'll definatly get one!

I like it, the pose looks much better in those pictures. The fingers/hand has more of a "come and get some" look to them now. I'll definitely be picking this up this summer but knowing GG if they say in May it'll be June or July.

I think Attakus Boba Fetts have better stances, but I'll definatly pick this one up. I can imagine opening it now.

I saw one in person today, and man does it look great! The pose isn't the best, but the details and paint are awesome! his base is much smaller than previous releases too, and I like that.

I'm still waiting for my comic shop to get them in so I can get the discount though...

I preordered mine from "dreamjoey" on ebay whom I've used before. I paid in April $140 shipped, but he hasn't received his shipment in. Ugh

Hahaha. No. I have no idea who that is. She is someone elses avatar from a dvd forum I frequent.

Oh, and I ended up getting my money back from dreamjoey. Waiting 2 months for a product is too long.

My Boba Fett statue is on the way! This guy looks to be one of the best 12-inchers that GG has made.

Sweet! Mine should be here in a few days. After hearing all the positive reviews for this piece, I can't wait for Boba to show up.

Mine arrived yesterday! I got him all opened up and displayed. Very pleased, I'm glad GG went with the ROTJ look and that he has a smaller base. The detail is fantastic! I dont mind the pose so much in person anymore. I'm very pleased! :pleased:

I've had to adjust my buying habits of late mostly due to the limited amount of display space I have so I sold all my GG 1/6 scale statues. That means I'll now be passing on this and future releases as well. Not really a big deal though since I already have a couple Boba Fett statues in my collection from Attakus and Kotobukiya. In addition I know Sideshow will eventually get around to producing him as a 1/4 scale Premium Format figure and I doubt I'd be able to pass that up. For me its hard enough justifying 3 versions of this character but 4 would definitely be overkill.

I hear that Hellboy. I'm done buying ANY Darth Vader Statues. Between Sideshow and Gentle Giant -I have plenty.

A friend of mine said the paint job was quite poor.The mini bust was much better than this.I still waiting mine,so I cannot tell what I think.

Anyone has the same thought?
