Just like they were when you were a kid, only BIGGER! Yesterday, Gentle Giant announced the next figure in its popular line of 12 inch vintage Star Wars action figure reproductions, and it’s Rocket Firing Boba Fett! Yes you read that right, Boba Fett is back! For all of us that missed out on 2010’s Celebration V Exclusive 12” Boba Fett, Gentle Giant is releasing an all new version of the galaxy’s most feared and respected bounty hunter. For those of you unfamiliar with Rocket Firing Boba Fett, it is one of the most legendary toys in action figure history. Never released due to safety concerns, the few figures that have found their way out of Kenner’s factories are some of the most sought after Star Wars collectables in the world!
Digitally scanned from mint Kenner originals and reproduced to a substantial 12" tall, this Jumbo Vintage Kenner Star Wars Rocket Firing Boba Fett action figure by Gentle Giant is an exact replica of the classic ‘80s toy. Injection molded and made of durable plastics, this jumbo figure is fully articulated, includes real rocket firing action, and comes packaged on a Star Wars inspired blister card with a plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display this awesome action figure.
The Star Wars 12 inch Jumbo Vintage Kenner Rocket Firing Boba Fett action figure by Gentle Giant is not expected to be released until early 2013, but it can be pre-ordered through Entertainment Earth for $84.99 here.
