Are they just re-packing the "regular" Fett??

I think so. You are buying this one for the packaging.

Easy pass. This is just lame in all sense of the word. Lazy.

Just compared the two, looks like it is for the card back only. I bought it anyway...yes, I'm a lemming, but I can't help it!

Purchased. NOT lame. Same as the vintage Droids Fett... just a repack on a new card and a coin. This will go perfect with C3PO and R2.

If even if I wanted to order one, their website is so damn horrendous, I can't. Their mobile version is by far the biggest piece of ***** I have ever experienced.

On initial glance, he doesn't even look any different than the regular version! wtf?

So this is the 5th coin they've done after Gamorrean, Yak Face, C-3PO and R2-D2? Instead of this piecemeal release, I'd be up for them reproducing the entire POTF 1985 coin album in Jumbo style.

'Scum says the Droids Fett was the identical figure. Just with a black gun like other later Fett releases had and the gold version of the coin. Of course GG already screwed up and gave us the black gun on the other Fett so too bad they didn't mirror the mistake and give us the blue one here.

This was inevitable. At least there are only two more possible versions of Fett they can do, then they must be done. Just ROTJ Desert Scene and ROTJ Space scene cardbacks they haven't done. Fett was never on a POTF card was he?

It is the same figure. The only difference between the original Droids and the SW/TESB/ROTJ Boba Fetts was the packaging too.

Once they run out of cards to repackage the Boba on, im sure they can make up new cards to sell him on. And then theres the Hasbro modern vintage collection cardback. Then slap a different coat of paint on the same mold and sell him as the prototype boba fett. Slap another coat for the animated fett. I know I cant wait til we get the solid 24k gold fett and the silver fett. I'll make sure to save an entire wall of my house for the Gentle Giant Jumbo Boba Fett.

give us more mini busts GG!

I know a few were unhappy about the Droids C-3PO and R2-D2 as being "repaints".....but I for one thought they were a no-brainer in terms of being a very easy and simple way from GG to produce new product. Rehashing the Boba Fett figure for a "Droids" card release however is laziness of the highest order. Making it a SDCC "exclusive" certainly guarantees sales, but sheesh, the fourth incarnation of the same friggen' figure IMO stinks!

To be fair all the other versions of Fett have sold very well and have high prices on the secondary market, even the rocket-firing Fett. I can't blame Gentle Giant for putting the same version out there with different packaging because it's faithful to the vintage Droids figure and Fett will sell.

And it's sold out now so that didn't take long. This and R2-D2 seem to be as limited as C-3PO so I hope you got your order in if you wanted one.

Both Droids exclusives (Fett and R2) are now listed as out of stock.

I collect loose and ordered the Droids Fett for the coin... any one interested in the Droids Fett w/o the coin? Not sure if I have to open the package to get the coin out or if it's like the C-3PO where the coin could be removed w/o breaking the seal?. Cost is $123.62 + shipping to your location... which is what I'm paying after shipping and taxes.

I had to open the clamshell to get the coin out, but it re-sealed fine.

I would've bought this from GG, but when you add the membership fee, price and shipping...I'm looking at $200+. I wish GG would let people/fans/former members buy without the membership fee.

Anyone get any updates on when GG is gonna start processing PGM orders for these?

I received my shipping notice as well. I'm curious why the Boba Jumbo took a little longer to ship than the other SDCC items. Glad it is on its way.

Just in case anyone didn't know, If you want to straighten out your coin, just bang the bottom left corner (under the Kenner Logo) repeatedly until the coin turns to the upright position. B)

Got mine last night. I like it, but I don't love it. Feels like the same Boba I already have twice but with a new card.

It IS the same Boba. If GG wanted to be accurate, it would have been a repaint to make it resemble the Taiwan COO Boba that actually was released on the DROIDS card.

Haha I know it's the same. I keep all my Jumbos in the box, so it's kinda different.

Finally Boba arrived at my door. Although a repack, I love the Droids jumbo card. Now if we get some more unique figures, that would be the cherry on top.

I got this one in the mail as well recently, same day as my PGM Wedge bust, however this one was not for me. Although once I opened it, I've never come face to face with a GG 12 inch figure before, so this was my first. Its a beautiful piece since I've never seen any of the others. So while others are worrying about the actual droids replica, I still think this is fantastic. Not my cup of tea for collecting, but I know the owner of this will love it. I did notice that these weren't numbered like busts. That took me by surprise. Again, keep in mind I don't collect these and this was the first one I've ever seen.
