Just posted to GG's website, new Bossk Jumbo figure:

Bossk Jumbo Kenner Figure (http://www.gentlegiantltd.com/product_p/80308.htm)

Going to probably have to get this for my 5 year old daughter since Bossk is her favorite character. No, I don't understand it at all either! :wtf:

Too bad GG isn't as good at making these Jumbo figs as they are at scaling up the vintage Kenner figures in Photoshop.

Even if they don't produce EVERY vintage figure, I'm sure they'll at least give us all the bounty hunters. I bet IG-88, Dengar, 4-LOM, and Zuckuss are offered by the end of 2013 or early 2014.

Yeah, GG tends to be a bit later than their estimates (and that's being kind). I'm going to guess that since the backlog of figures is cleared up and they only have to get Power Droid and the Comic Con figure out this summer that Bossk may actually be out in September or October.

Got him today.

His arms and legs are so dark they're almost black. On top of this, they went in and sculpted a bunch of bumps, scales and details that aren't on the vintage figure's head.

Way to go, GG, yet again you find a way to screw up the most simplistic details.

I just put him right back in the shipping box. I'm done.

Thanks, Glitch--but man, that's disappointing. The limbs I could forgive for the same reason you cite, but WTF, that head!! Not that it was necessary for me to see how severely he's been resculpted, but I just grabbed a Kenner Bossk and inspected his head up-close with an LED flashlight...it's baffling why GG felt the need to do this to him. Isn't it obvious to them after all this time that we want something as close to an enlarged exact copy of the Kenner figures as is possible? What a bummer; Bossk is in my top 5 favorite vintage figures, and I've been looking forward to this all year...but this weird head sculpt loses a lot of the charm of the original.

Totally agree.

It's just so instantly obvious once you see it in person that it's completely wrong. It's almost like how EU is trying to re-imagine Bossk into some kind of scaly, horned lizard creature.

10-08-2013, 11:51 PM
What happened to the claim that GG is digitally scanning real Kenner vintage figures and then upscaling them? Early on, they discussed that process as a way of boasting how accurate these would be. So why are we now getting original sculpting on these figures instead of simply scanning the real thing as a 3D model to upscale? It's not like a mint condition vintage Bossk is hard to acquire in order to scan. There should have been NO reason to sculpt his head, let alone do it inaccurately with added detail the original never had. :rolleyes:

So is this what we can expect from future figures now? Will any Ewok figures they release have more detailed fur sculpted on their bodies? Will the Emperor have a more wrinkled face and hands? We've already had a few instances of inaccurate colored capes (Leia, Tusken Raider) and inaccurate heights (Blue Snaggletooth), so now we have to also settle for inaccurate sculpting even though it should be a no-brainer to simply do a 3D scan of the original figure without any modification whatsoever!

I swear, it's like Gentle Giant just wants to kill this line and drive away even more of the collectors who were supporting it.

HI Shabby_Blue - Thanks for sharing your concern. However, each and every figure is digitally scanned from an original figure. We do not do any original sculpting. Of course the digital scan data has to be re-touched delicately in order to create a printable 3D piece. I work directly on this line and can guarantee that is authentic. We will post some images of the digital scan and model along with the original figure. Please send me a PM with your concern in detail if you would like. And if you are not totally satisfied with your piece, and you purchased it directly from GGLTD, then please contact Chris to return this item for a refund.

Mr Squirrel... have you seen the pics on the last page? This head is OBVIOUSLY re-sculpted with things not present on the original and the colors are WAY off. I appreciate the offer for us to get a refund but that is not at all the point. I am picking these up to relive childhood memories in my own way... and to have things go wrong like this hurt not only the fanboys of the product but anyone you are hoping will pick this up at a whim. I am truly disappointed.

Yeah, I'd love to see the Kenner figure GG supposedly scanned, since no known variation of Bossk contains those numerous scales on his head. The level of detail on that head looks more like what we'd get from Hasbro's modern toy line than anything Kenner would have ever sculpted in 1980. I'm really hoping this isn't setting a precedent for future figures in this line. We don't want your -interpretation- of what the vintage figure should look like. Just give us a 100% accurate upscaled version of the original without any single modification.

M'kay.

:wtf:

I know these are based on scanned figures, but when you go in and sculpt details that are CLEARLY not there, it totally defeats the purpose. Sharpen, but don't cook up totally fiction like you did with Bossk and call it "sharpened."

The people that collect (or once collected) these things aren't idiots, so please don't treat them like they are. We grew up with these things, so we know them VERY well.

How this line can continually suffer from blatant detail, color and scaling issues when you have the original figures right there to work from just blows my mind. This should be about the easiest line on the planet to manage, yet...

Agree, and im not sure how GG make their finished model above look like the original head, all glossy and a totally different colour, ive noticed they do this with every figure, when the ones we get are dull with no gloss, id say a bit of photo shopping is going on, or their first shots are totally different to the ones they sell us.

Glitch
10-11-2013, 10:26 AM

It's because the figures GG uses in their promotional pics, and often displays at shows, are resin hard copies painted with a glossier paint. The vinyl they use on the final figures doesn't lend itself to gloss. That said, they do use gloss paints occasionally - usually strange places where it shouldn't be used.

Shabby_Blue
10-11-2013, 12:51 PM
I thought we were going to see the original vintage figure that was actually used as the source for the 3D scan. Showing us the computer model of said scan doesn't exactly prove anything, because that could be just as tweaked as any prototype sculpting. I want to see the Bossk figure you used as the source of your scan, since he's apparently a very unique variant none of us vintage collectors has ever come across in over 30 years of collecting. I personally have 6 different Bossk figures with 6 different COOs, and none have the kind of detail on the head that GG's Bossk has.

All that aside, the 3D scan definitely doesn't have the scales on the jawbone and side of the face. So clearly GG sculpted more detail after the fact. If this is what we can expect for all future figures, then I'll be cancelling my pre-orders. I really dread seeing how you guys screw up the ROTJ Jabba's Palace aliens or the Ewoks with unnecessary added detail that was never present on the original figures.

This is not good. I'm all for the need to make design/production judgement calls in order to bring a mass produced item to market. Things like scale, mis-colored capes, matte vs. glossy finish, etc. don't really bother me. But modifying the scan of the vintage figure to this extent is disappointing to say the least. It's absolutely unnecessary to add detail for the market these are supposed to be catering to.

I hope there's a good reason, although I really can't imagine what it could be.

I can tell you exactly what the reason was: to try to make it more "visually pleasing" at a larger scale. Sometimes when you scale things you, they tend to look VERY plane. Thing is, we don't love the vintage line for the level of detail. In fact, I think most of us love the charm of their simplicity.

What cracks me up is in the past, there have been details that were lost that went unchanged. Things like the stitching on Han's vest (yes, it's on the 3 3/4 figure if you look really close), Hammerhead's skin texture and the texture and tiny bumps on the Gamorrean Guard's armor. When GG produced these at 12", I didn't have a problem that these detail were lost in the process because I thought they were just that - lost in the process. Now that I see the resolution at which they scan, I'm kinda pissed that they're missing now.

Oh well.....

The bottom line is: don't go in and sculpt details that aren't there to make them more "visually satisfying." We can sniff that stuff out a mile away. I've noticed less offensive examples in the past, but this time it just absolutely KILLED this figure.

Next up, what's the deal with massively undersized Chewbacca and Vader and oversized Leia figures? Don't even get me started on Blue Snaggletooth.

I'm REALLY getting tired of this garbage. How do you mess up just increasing the size of a figure? You don't have to do ANYTHING except make it bigger yet they still find a way to screw with it. I can only imagine GG does it on purpose to read the posts. Between the $400 Wampa and the inconsistent quality of other figures I'm starting to think I have better things to do with my money.

First time poster, long time lurker :)

I too had every intention of being a completest with this line, having so far collected every figure and card variation released to date. Whilst unhappy with the cost of the Wampa, I decided to purchase it directly from GG (and paying another $90 to have it sent to me here in Australia) as I shuddered to think what this thing is going to retail for here in Australia with the RRP in the US being $400. However after seeing the final product version of Bossk, the line in the sand has effectively been drawn for me. I won't be adding this figure to my collection and from now on I will be extremely selective about what I purchase going forward.

The additional detail sculpted on Bossk's head goes completely against the spirit of what I thought this line was all about......that being one of nostalgia for those of us who were lucky enough to have played and collected the original Kenner figures as kids. A super detailed head on Bossk is not what I remember and in all honesty this simply kills the innocence that I personally see in vintage toys. If I wanted a super detailed Bossk, I'd by the Sideshow 12" figure. I wanted toys that represented a true up-scale of their vintage counterpart.....the very idea that GG itself sold us as being the inspiration for the Jumbo Kenner line.

DarthMickeyMoose

I'm hoping Bossk is the only bounty hunter that suffers from Gentle Giant's "re-touched" treatment. Also, hoping all this negative press results in Bossk being clearanced by online retailers... which will make it easier for me to justify pulling the trigger on this one. :O)

I was contemplating picking one of these up for my daughter since she has a weird love of Bossk, but I just can't justify giving GG any money for this. I know my daughter would still love it, but that's not enough for me to send GG any amount of money for it. Especially when I've always felt that GG seems to translate sales as approval of what they produce even if it's horribly inaccurate, over priced, has scale issues, paint issues, or any number of issues they have encountered in the past. If it's selling well, it MUST be done right, regardless of the fact that the internet is lite up like Christmas with all the complaints.

That's the only way I'd buy it and for cheap, but even then I can't help but think it would still feel wrong because SOMEONE still had to pay GG for it.

Yea know, I kind of wonder if the head was originally intended to be painted? I could see them adding extra detail if some of it would have been hidden under the paint, and it would explain why the head has a different looking texture from the limbs????

LOL what was wrong with this figure? I had him on pre order but I forgot all about him turns out I forgot to update my CC so it was declined. I guess I dodge a bullet. Was it really that bad? I will get the Snowtrooper and IG-88 and I am out. That Wampa price was really bad.

I got mine today from BBTS and I don't mind it that much. I certainly don't find it as irritating as the Tusken cape!

I don't think I'll be ordering from BBTS again though, I get stung with a customs charge EVERY SINGLE TIME!:mad: Which bumps the cost of these things through the roof for me in the UK.

Although I think I'll be halting my collection of these things soon anyway.
