The Blot’s been dying to share with you this awesome kitbashed bootleg Star Wars figure ever since I first found out about it a few weeks ago. If you’re not familiar with Jeremy Bulloch, he’s the actor who played my favorite Star Wars character Boba Fett in the original Star Wars trilogy. Killer Bootlegs wanted to pay tribute to the “Man Inside The Mask” and made this sick resin bootleg by combining a vintage Boba Fett body with the head of Commander Adama action figure from the original Battlestar Galactica series. If you know what Mr. Bulloch looks like, it’s really a spitting image of the man. I don’t know how they ever passed that head sculpt as Lorne Greene (who portrayed Commander Adama in the original ABC TV series).
But it’s not just the figure that makes this such an awesome release! The blistercards were designed by Mike Mancuso (of Sixty Bones Press and TheYetee.com), who did a masterful job layering Boba Fett’s helmet with the profile of Jeremy Bulloch. I love how it ties together the “Man Inside The Mask” theme of the figure. Even better still, Killer Bootlegs got these figures signed by Jeremy Bulloch a few weeks ago at Wizard World Chicago. How freaking cool is that!?! KB definitely went above and beyond putting this release together.
The Jeremy Bulloch “Man Inside The Mask” Bootleg Boba Fett Star Wars resin figure by Killer Bootlegs is limited to just 5 signed pieces, and will go on sale in early September exclusively at Tenacious Toys.
