(Update, Dec 5: My tracking information just showed up, he'll be here Friday)


I know this one doesn't have the same general level of interest as some of the other busts, but I got my 20 day notice on the Bossk 1:1 yesterday. I'm looking forward to this guy, but then, I'm pretty delighted with the entire 1:1 bust line and how they're sort of alternating betweeen obvious and less-obvious choices.

I'm looking forward to this too. This is an incredibly underated line. I hope they keep picking winners...

I don't know why, but I just think Ackbar, Ree Yees and Hammerhead would look so cool in this line!

Well, I hope they charge your card so that you can get this piece ASAP. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

If it's any consolation, I'm still waiting for my 1:6 scale Bespin Luke and Medicom Peter Parker figures. (I received an e-mail from SSC indicating that the aforementioned items would be shipped with the 1:6 Leia ANH figure to save on freight costs; I can't really argue with that, but it is taking an awfully long time).

Yeah, I love SSC but sometimes they split shipments and get fouled up getting new pieces out. No worries though...With so many thing son the horizon...I almost forgot about poor Bossk! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif

I ordered when Bossk was announced using Flexpay. The schedule was withdraws on Oct. 20, Nov. 20 and Dec. 20. Sorry SirT, but you won't be seeing this until Christmas or after depending on how soon they ship after taking the last payment...

I didn't forget about Bossk; in fact, with all the stuff scheduled to ship over the next few months, I considered cancelling it. Since it appears that the remaining MR pre-orders won't be fulfilled until sometime in the New Year, I decided to keep Bossk.

Yeah, the only drawback (albiet extremely minimal) is that the sometimes get stuff in early...imagine that!! ...but if you Flex-Pay'd it, you have to wait for the scheduled payment period. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

i'm looking forward to getting him. now to explain this one to my wife http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif

I'm sure you'll get the same reaction that I did whem my wife saw the space slug diorama. She usually enjoys the items in my collection - not so much with that ugly phallus.

her reaction will have more to do with all the stuff thats been arriving. latley it seems like somthing comes everyday. plus she knows the bigger the box the more it costs http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Bossk is pretty much as advertised which is to say, exceptional although I would have preferred that a material other than polystone had been used on the upper part of his suit (perhaps not the most realistic thing when it comes to the long-term "health" of the piece, but still). Also, it would have been nice if the bust had been expanded to include Bossk's shoulders, but nevertheless, if you're a fan of SSC's 1:1 scale busts, this is a must-have.

Yeah, the only thing that bugged me about this piece (In the pics) was the lack of his shoulders and that signature yellow flight suit! I would have liked to have had the shoulders too!!!

How tall is he? Is he as tall as Maul or as tall as Greedo?
My Maul and Yoda fit in my cabinet but Greedo was too big!

Bossk looks nearly identical to what you see in the SSC image gallery; it's not one of those bait-and-switch scenarios like we got with the 1:6 Yavin Luke figure. Still, I feel as you do that the bust would have benefited from some embellishment in the shoulder area. Regardless, it's a tremendous piece of work, and I'm very glad to have it in my collection.



How tall is he? Is he as tall as Maul or as tall as Greedo? My Maul and Yoda fit in my cabinet but Greedo was too big!



By my (crude) estimation Bossk is roughly 2-3 inches taller than Yoda (I don't own the Maul or Greedo busts, so I have no further basis for comparison). I hope that helps. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I would acquiesce, but I've decided not to take any photos of my collectibles until I get everything properly organized. Bossk is currently positioned beside Yoda, that's all I'll say. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

overall i like it alot. no shoulders doesnt bother me too much. i do wish it had some fabric/material below the neck like all the other 1:1 busts. the only complaint is that mine has some sloppy paint apps around the neck area.

like i said i do like it just not as much as i thought i would.

heres how i rank them
#1 greedo
#2 maul
#3 bossk
#4 yoda

So far all I've bought in the 1:1 line is Darth Maul bust but Bossk certainly does appeal to me.
I have a question for those of you who have the Bossk bust: Does his skin have a "reptilian" look to it? In these pictures it kinda looks like it's just a high gloss paint application. I know that pictures can sometimes be deceiving so that's why I thought I'd ask.

Yep. The portion of the suit that is included in this bust actually contains *no* yellow in it:

I finally unboxed Bossk (unBossked?) on Tuesday (I should have had him Friday, but there was this amazing set of three consecutive "missed by five minutes" delivery attempts, including one on Monday, which isn't a normal day for the FedEx Home Delivery service). My wife, who was sitting across the room, looked up and said "Oh, he's *great*" and then followed it up with "I'll be honest, I've not been all that excited about those busts except for Maul, but he's really spectacular!".

So, I figure that gives Bossk like an extra 20%-50% on any review score I'd give him. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif
