now they just need to release the rest of him in 1:1 so we can have him standing next to their eventual 1:1 Han frozen in Carbonite!

Curious to see the back - doesn't appear to have his jetpack, so I'm wondering how finished it looks.

Iím on the fence with this one. I already have the MR LE Boba Fett helmet, which is already as good as it gets, so other than getting the neck and shoulders this one will always be second best. I guess it depends on the price point, but Iím leaning towards a pass because I really donít need it.

I can totally see this being a big thing for anyone who doesnít already own the MR LE, it would be for me.

Just wish it wasn't so soon after Vader.

SirTristram

I'll get it because I have all the others, but I am skeptical about a few things myself....
The lack of Jet pack and that weird tilt of his head....I am not liking that 'Huh?' look.

Shadow
02-14-2010, 06:38 PM
I actually like the tilt of the head, it makes the pose dynamic to me. I don't think they will have the jet pack, there would not be enough of it to not be a distraction sticking up in the back not really connected to anything.

Meh, I'm not all that excited about this one.

Yeah, I have the MR helmet and will still probably get this but I would have prefered any of the other Bounty Hunters from ESB

IG-88...4-Lom...Zuckuss...Anyone? Now those I would have been more excited about.

Shadow
02-14-2010, 10:02 PM

I would too if the cost for the bust would be lower. I already have the best prop replica of the helmet in the same scale from MR. The differences on this bust, (the inclusion of the neck and shoulders), is not enough for me to justify the expense for the overall piece while already owning the best 1:1 version of the same helmet.

To have the neck and shoulders also would be really cool, but I think the price point will be too high to duplicate something I already have that is on the top of the game already. While they are two completely different offerings, the helmet with this bust will never equal the MR helmet. This is a bust statue, not an exact prop replica, so I acknowledge they really canít fairly be compared against each other.

If I had deep enough pockets to justify purchasing this bust while already having the MR helmet in my collection, I would be on this one the moment it goes up for pre-order. Since I have to make a choice between the two based on cost, I need to pass and state again how cool this bust does look. Good luck and happiness to anyone able to purchase it.

Um, YEAH! ANY of the other ESB Hunters that they have not done would have been a welcome surprise! We really need the other four. That would make for one hell of a bust collection. That should be their game plan for the next two years!

I agree totally on the price point. I have the MR helmet so it's not that big a deal if i miss it. I won't pay more than $600. (The only reason i wanted the Vader was because of the Sebastian Shaw Head> that seemed to make the expense worth it.)

Rodders
02-15-2010, 04:14 AM
Thinking about it, I might pass on this. After looking at the Darth Vader bust, i can see them releasing one with a Temuera Robinson sculpt as Boba Fett at a later date. (Possibly Jango too.)

Thinking about it, this would make a nice line of 1:1 Busts as you can have Leia/Boussh, Luke/Stormtrooper and Han/Sormtrooper. That would be a great line of limited busts.

No, I highly doubt that.
Fett NEVER took his helmet off on film and with them advertising this one, they won't re-release with a face sculpt.

They may make a Jango Fett though with a face reveal.

EV9D9
02-15-2010, 12:30 PM
Having the MR helmet, this will be the first bust pass for me too. I seem to recall that early on Sideshow wasn't going to do helmeted characters in the bust line...they broke that with the vader, though at least he has something extra with the reveal. Here it's just Fett's shoulders. If they continue down this path they may have a lot of passes from me...Stormtrooper, clones, etc. Although I can see them doing a 1:1 Cody since no one made a Cody helmet. A Boushh would be cool too.

And I thought they were just doing 1 or 2 busts a year?! This will be the third already for 2010. I can't keep up with the $ or space! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

Rodders
02-15-2010, 12:37 PM
That's true SirTristram, i concede that point.

I agree, I wonít be adding busts that just simply duplicate helmets I already own. I also fully agree that the Vader/Anakin is an exception. Iím getting that one for the reveal Anakin portrait and interior details. If it was just the full helmet without the reveal I would hold out for an OT prop helmet.

I won't be trying to collect all of the 1:1 busts, they take up too much display space, so I'm picking and choosing the ones that compliment and add to my collection since for 1:1 I prefer prop replicas to statues.

My understanding was that said statement was at least partly to do with not crowding the marketplace. In a world where, for example, there's a currently shipping $500+ helmet, making a $500+ bust of the same character wouldn't be a good idea for either company.
Given that they're calling this out as an ESB anniversary item, it's a sensible choice. Fett's a pretty iconic element of Empire.



And I thought they were just doing 1 or 2 busts a year?! This will be the third already for 2010. I can't keep up with the $ or space! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif



I wouldn't read too much into it. One bust does not a trend make. It's an anniversary item, not necessarily the harbinger of a new flood of busts.
I'll reserve judgement until we get non-teaser details, but it *will* have to work hard to justify itself to me given that I have the MR helmet. Of course, if it included part of the rocket pack to hang off the back, that'd probably do it. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Come to think of it with all the very good Fett prop replica spare armor parts that are being made out there by some very clever guys, and as I have 2 MR Fett helmets it wouldn't be a long shot to recreate this bust with all the parts added to a head and shoulder dummy , I would like to get this very much but would this just be overkill when I have 3 full size helmets anyway (2 MR and one Fan made),
I suppose it depends how imposing this looks in the flesh , what the shoulders and body are made of, is the helmet removable , will all the LED`s work on the chest armor and range finder, and how cool would it be if there where some sound samples added that played at the touch of a button as I believe there is on the 1:1 sideshow R2D2 and C3PO, it all depends on the price , if its $600 or there abouts I could dive in but if its closer to $800 I may have to pass..........regrettably


And as has been said before the missing Jet Pack is a big oversight

Well, looking at the specs:

Grevious:

Product Size:23" H (584.2mm) x 11" W (279.4mm) x 11" D (279.4mm)*
Product Weight:20.00 lbs (9.07 kg)*

Fett:

Product Size:30" H (762mm) x 25" W (635mm) x 10" D (254mm)*
Product Weight:35.00 lbs (15.88 kg)*

So he is a tad bit bigger then Grievous.

I would've guessed around $800. The typical bust is $500 ... and Vader is $1,200. Seeing that Fett has an "armor" aspect to him, I'm not surprised by the price. Still ... at the same time ... damn.
I'm going to wait to see what NSide and the other dealers list it at. That 5% discount could come in mighty handy now. I'll make my decision then.
A piece of the backpack would've been nice.

I guess I'm in the minority, but there is no way this thing is worth $800. To me it is simply incomplete without part of his jetpack. Unless the edition size is tiny (which I doubt) he will be available for less than msrp in due time.

Akbar was $500

Hmm. I was expecting $500 myself. I think they are taking advantage of the fact that it's Fett. Greivous was only $500 and he seems more intricate IMO.

Helmet paint is inaccurate, still has the pinch, back armor is inaccurate without the jet pack slots, and hopefully will have LEDs in the chest armor...

I would've guessed around $800. The typical bust is $500 ... and Vader is $1,200. Seeing that Fett has an "armor" aspect to him, I'm not surprised by the price. Still ... at the same time ... damn.
I'm going to wait to see what NSide and the other dealers list it at. That 5% discount could come in mighty handy now. I'll make my decision then.
A piece of the backpack would've been nice.



If it had the rocketpack, this would have been $1,200...

Correct, it was late last night! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

The LE was $450 and the SE was $550 and at least the helmets are wearable and way more accurate when it comes to paint detail. For $350 I could buy a complete weathered backpack and put together my own bust for a lot cheaper and a lot more accurate!

I'm passing on Boba. Don't have the MR helmet but I think I'd rather have that than this one down the road. Aesthetically, I miss the jetpack too much to not notice it, and also I don't think the cape coming off his shoulder and lying on the table does much for it either.

And, of course, the price isn't favorable.

This line interests me the most for sculpts of faces, particularly aliens. I enjoy the artistry of seeing the eyes, mouth, expression, etc. that the artists choose. For helmeted characters, I'd rather just have a helmet replica or get them in a smaller scale.

Hmmm, this is an odd one. My thoughts....

1) As others have said it has the same (incorrect) tapering of the visor that the MR had. I'm therefore wondering if SSC has just recast an MR (for the proto)

2) The paint job isn't anywhere near as good as the MR (I'm looking at hi-res pics)

3) Is the helmet wearable? If so I'm confused at the overlap in licenses between SSC and MR/e-FX

It is a nice bust - but given we've fairly recently had a better product from MR, I'll be passing.

Cheers

SS said somewhere that the helmet will not be wearable so I'm thinking it's going to be on some sort of ball joint so the head can move.

Well I guess that makes sense then from a licensing perspective. eFX make helmets you could wear (although are not supposed to), whereas SSC make "non wearable" busts.

However stick one of these up on your display cabinet and you KNOW the first person that see's it is going to want to plonk it on their head http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

That is the kind of price cutting that drives me nuts. On the one hand this statue is very expensive no matter what. So rather than spend a little more when you're spending so much already and get the ultimate Fett statue with Fabric exactly where it should be, we need to settle for a hard sculpt and the lost potential just to save a little relatively?

When you're going big already, go for the gusto to make it worth the effort. How many would want to need to do it all again if a better version becomes available later when they could have had it all this time for just one hit?

We've had two 1:1 busts that replaced cloth with sculpt to date: Bossk's flight suit and Ackbar's collar. Despite liking Bossk as it came out, I'd say mixed media would have heightened his impact. Ackbar, on the other hand, works fine for me as is.

I can see both approaches. On the one hand, a classical bust like you'd see in an antiquities museum sculpts everything as a solid piece. On the other, these aren't antiquities and SS has already used mixed media to a very positive effect on Maul, Yoda, Palpatine, and Greedo.

Not to be a pest, just curious, but was any part of the Bossk bust actually flight suit? I thought his suit was yellow/orange?

As far as Ackbar- no idea what that smock thing is he was wearing (looked like plastic to me http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif)- but I concede the point!

I agree Shadow. It's one of those things where instead of making the "ultimate" they decided to make it so they could sell as many as possible. Apparently this $800 item was the compromise of quality and maximizing the volume of possible units sold. I certainly would overlook paint job detail if other elements were there to add to the realism.

Cloth would have definitely added to the piece. The jetpack would have added to the overall item as well. LED for the chest and view finder. Hair for the wookie scalps. I could go on and on, but everytime I do I see this approaching the $1500 mark combined with many possible return hassles that they could encounter and probably decided not to deal with.

I'll hold onto my preorder and reserve judgement until we get refreshed photos. The big tick in this bust's favor in my mind is that Spectral Motion is working on it. They did the oustanding Maul bust, and they're contributing to the Vader Bust.


As for the question of soft goods, it's worth noting that there's really only been two kinds of soft goods on the 1:1 busts: cloak/cape elements draped over the bust and/or simple cloth elements tacked over the shoulder areas. Yoda's a special case, but even his soft goods are surprisingly spartan. Even the Vader bust is dodging the issue and not including any bodysuit elements. That's not meant as a defense of the decision, only an observation.

StarWarsHelmets
02-23-2010, 02:24 PM
I was surprised to see a sculpted tunic - as I mentioned on my site. I can understand the cost implications but in person I think it will really detract from the overall appearance and is therefore a shame IMO.

The old English naval saying "why spoil the ship for a ha'porth of tar" springs to mind....

BTW the tunic on the original Bossk was a RAF altitude vest, same as on the X-Wing pilots....

It hasn't "sold out" because there is no pre-set edition size. Ordering is open for about a month to determine interest, and then the reservation list will be cut off. I wouldn't be surprised if there are only 250 manufactured. As far as when the last piece is shipped from the warehouse and this piece is legitimately sold out, that won't be for 2 1/2 years.

I really don't see what everyone's problem is with this? OK, it's not overly accurate, but i still think that it's a great looking piece.



There's absolutely nothing wrong with it. There's just opinion and aesthetic judgment, and as with all high-end items, there are people who aren't into it, and that's just fine. If you think it's a great piece, then it is. End of story.

my issue is the lack of at least a partial jet pack. It simply looks incomplete without it imho.

Totally agreed. We are all the best critics of what we personally like; the rest really doesn't matter if you are happy with it.

For some of us the problem is we already have most of this piece in a much better format. To see it offered again I would like to see something more than what I already have, and step up the quality of what I'd be getting, (cloth and hair braids not sculpted details for instance).




I completely agree with you. MR's helmet (even with its tapering) was more accurate - so this is a step backwards for me.

Plus I know its a licensing issue but I wonder how many people dont like the idea you cant actually "wear" the helmet?

Yea Boba Fett kinda does need a jet pack, but the peice is still awsome that is why I Pre-ordered mine. It's actually my first bust of any kind that I have put an order in for. Im more of a 1:6 kind of person. Its just that these SS bust are really starting to catch my eye.

Extremely curious to see how Boba fares after all the debate over the missing pack. I haven't ordered it, but I admit, if 1000 pieces means we see some meaningful discounts down the line, there is a price point where I could overlook the jetpack issue. Rest of the bust looks great, after all.

No way, with an edition size of 1000 this will be available for ahwile, especially for $800. Besides with collectors shelling out $1200 for Vader, I dont think many of us would drop that kind of coin so soon.

I to hope for discounts, maybe $500-600 would be great..

What annoys me is the helmet. They've obviously just plonked a copy of the MR helmet on there. The mandibles aren't supposed to taper in, it's supposed to be a square T-shape. If it was Vader there'd be an uproar about the angles being off. Sideshow says they listen, but I think it's selective hearing. Doesn't bode well for their 12" figure if they just downsize this.

IMO Sideshow doesnt listen. Ive offered them FREE help on numerous occasions but they have no interest.

Hell, in order for me to be able to do proper "hands on" reviews I said either ship me a "loan" bust (which I return) or else let me buy one at dealer rates so I can sell it on after the reviews done - but was refused on both grounds.

I dont believe they have any real interest in engaging with the fans and thats the opinion Ive also heard from a number of others in a similar position to me http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

not gonna happen, I remember hearing them say that every Fett product has the jetpack so they included to leave it out to make it a bit different. Besides, this one is too far into development to add that, IMO.

Hey guys,well I have to take a moment to follow suit as Slave 1 did and give cudos to my wife. A long story short back on Dec 13 I had a Fed-ex note on my door but was not expecting anything. It said I had to be signed for in person. When I called to schedule a drop off at my local Fedex Hub they said it was a 35 lbs box from SideShow. Well from there I had to do some investigating. Quised the wife she said she wrote a letter, said something about SSC so I investigated. I went to the SSC site, the Web Wish Mistress contest and thought I knew due to the weight what it was. a day later I picked it up and it was big, once I got on here and saw InsaneFett's post on his pics it was all but confirmed as the boxes were the same excpet on mine the SideShow tape covered the description. Come X-Mas morning it was confirmed it was the 1:1 Fett. I have to say I am a 95' to present 3-3/4 guy, I have been a GG guy from the start and have started into loose Vintage to add to my childhood collection. This 1:1 is my second SSC piece as Darth Talon PF is my first, just could not pass her up.

When this was first announced I told my wife that was a must grab but told her as well it was to much for me as I am so deep in everything else. I just think of how many GG Bust I could buy or 3-3/4 I could buy and that won out. She also mentioned it as a 10 yr Anni as its coming up but I said no it's too much.

I just have to say what a wonderful Wife I have, she followed the site, saw the contest, sent in a very touching letter that I had no idea of and then this great gift was bestowed upon me. I have to find a place for it now which is a good problem to have but also I think SSC is in my future as well. A great company, providing a great product and giving back to its fans. WOW is all I can say.

It really makes sense. I often see products being damaged in transit or even in the factory. The last thing a customer wants is to get something damaged. So i began to inspect the stuff (only if customers want and for free of course. Some people like their stuff totally sealed and i respect that too).



So does the paint look like the stratched off paint is just that, or is it that strange paint job that was done to the Master Replica Boba Fett helmet. I have not seen an upclose picture of the helmet on this yet. Would yo mind getting an upclose picture of the helmet sctatches/chipped paint?

So I do not have any of the 1:1 busts from sideshow. I do have their PF Statues, and I'm considering getting this one. Anyone suggest which bust is best as a first?

Vader is the best one, but if you are a Fett fan, you should buy Boba first.

Hey guys,well I have to take a moment to follow suit as Slave 1 did and give cudos to my wife. A long story short back on Dec 13 I had a Fed-ex note on my door but was not expecting anything. It said I had to be signed for in person. When I called to schedule a drop off at my local Fedex Hub they said it was a 35 lbs box from SideShow. Well from there I had to do some investigating. Quised the wife she said she wrote a letter, said something about SSC so I investigated. I went to the SSC site, the Web Wish Mistress contest and thought I knew due to the weight what it was. a day later I picked it up and it was big, once I got on here and saw InsaneFett's post on his pics it was all but confirmed as the boxes were the same excpet on mine the SideShow tape covered the description. Come X-Mas morning it was confirmed it was the 1:1 Fett. I have to say I am a 95' to present 3-3/4 guy, I have been a GG guy from the start and have started into loose Vintage to add to my childhood collection. This 1:1 is my second SSC piece as Darth Talon PF is my first, just could not pass her up.

When this was first announced I told my wife that was a must grab but told her as well it was to much for me as I am so deep in everything else. I just think of how many GG Bust I could buy or 3-3/4 I could buy and that won out. She also mentioned it as a 10 yr Anni as its coming up but I said no it's too much.

I just have to say what a wonderful Wife I have, she followed the site, saw the contest, sent in a very touching letter that I had no idea of and then this great gift was bestowed upon me. I have to find a place for it now which is a good problem to have but also I think SSC is in my future as well. A great company, providing a great product and giving back to its fans. WOW is all I can say.

Whoa, Catch!

I just cringed looking at those precariously posed on those pedestals!
You are indeed a much braver man than I. I would never pose that Vader on a pedestal with that width! Are they at least weighted or weighted at the bottom??? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

No panic ST,the pedestals are wide enough (28x28cm).Also the pedestals are very very heavy (i think 20kg).

Does anyone have this SS Boba and a MR Boba bucket that you might can get a picture of both side by side? It would be cool to see them side by side.

Thanks in advance.

That is very cool and I think I might break and get one...

This is the fist time I have seen it next to the MR helmet though....I have to say, I am surprised at the color and deco/weathering difference. As awesome as the bust is, I like the helmet from MR better. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Hmmm, I know the Master Replicas helmets are highly coveted but I have to say I think Sideshow held their own on this piece... The visor on the MR helmet seems to narrow at the bottom which isn't too accurate me thinks (did i just jar jar?) Anyway, does anyone have some pics from Empire to post for comparison?

SirTristram
02-20-2011, 10:51 AM
The weathering comparison is bothering me more now than the color. THe weathering on the MR Helm look [censored]!

thank you for the comparison pics!

the paint and weathering on the MR cannot be touched. But, they really @!# up the mandible, which SS, to their credit got right.

both are very nice, but personally I would rather have the bucket. Now if SS gave us a bigger bust (more of his chest) and a jetpack, it would be an absolute must buy.

Yes, indeed! Inclusion of the top half of the Jet pack would have sealed the deal for me! Instant purchase!

Outer Rim, Thanks so much for the pictures! From what I'm looking at I like the Bust helmet much better. The color is more true. This is the second bucket that I'm noticing MR's color is off a little. Seems like SideShow is getting the colors more true to what I saw in the movies.
