Buddha Fett Resin Figures by Killer Bootlegs

Buddha Fett Resin Figures by Killer Bootlegs

When The Blot first heard about the new Buddha Fett resin figure by Peter Goral of Killer Bootlegs (Facebook, Twitter) I knew instantly I had to have one! While there are similar figures being produced, to me this is the best of the bunch. I love how seamlessly Peter was able to merge the Boba Fett head with a Buddha body to create what looks like an original sculpt. But don’t let that fool you, this is a true bootlegged figure!

Buddha Fett Resin Figure by Killer Bootlegs and Kidrobot Dunnys by Amanda Visell

Peter just recently opened the official Killer Botlegs online store, and I made my purchase instantly. At the time I wasn’t even sure how tall his Buddha Fett figures were. But as you can see from the photo above with two 3” Dunnys, it’s about 2” tall. While I’ve never met Peter, I’ve gotten the opportunity to chat with him through e-mail a few times, and I get the feeling this Buddha Fett figure is a great representation of his artistic style. For some reason it seems like artists are moving away from kitbashing figures to create new bootlegs, but when it’s done right, like it is here, the results are bind blowing.

Buddha Fett & Space Fuck Resin Figures by Killer Bootlegs

You can pick up a Buddha Fett ($15) and some other really cool Star Wars bootleg resin figures from Killer Bootleg’s new online store. While the Space Fuck seen above is not currently for sale, I’ve got a feeling if you shoot Peter an email he may be able to hook you up!
