While shows and video game projects are disappearing left and right, officially licensed merchandise has continued to pop up in retail locations throughout the United States. Some interesting Boba Fett items have been recently spotted – and reported on – by the teams over at Rebelscum.com and JediNews.co.uk.
Rebelscum posted earlier this week he ran across a half dozen or so Star Wars items during a visit to Pep Boys in Tampa, Fl.
Amongst his finds was a plastic Boba Fett garage stool – measuring a little under 3-feet tall and made of thick vinyl and chrome-plated legs. Pep Boy’s website describes this item as perfect for a fanboy’s garage or game room – but at an in-store price of $59.00 – it defiantly doesn’t fall in the realm of an impulse buy or random purchase.
Pep Boys is also carrying a plastic Boba Fett key chain, which comes with a plastic ring to attach keys on, and a plastic hook, which can be used to attach the helmet shaped emblem to a backpack and the likes. This item is more reasonably priced at $3.99 and can be found at select Pep Boy locations or ordered via their website.
Jedi News posted a very unique finding – window blinds, featuring a blueprint-like illustration of Slave I. The British-based company, Direct Blinds, is offering a wide array of blinds featuring iconic ships from science fiction franchises.
This item would really tie together your Geekcave, it’s a subtle but unique decoration for your collection’s room – the only thing that may stop you from ordering it immediately – is it’s price of 99 pounds.
That equals about $150 in American dollars – which doesn’t even include shipping to North America. Therefore, this is a perfect item for a collector with disposable income – for others, it’s something to bookmark until you have the money.
Kentucky-based artist Michael McLane has posted some amazing glasswork, which has become viral and is being shared across multiple platforms across the Internet.
McLane has created multiple stained glass lamps, ranging from Master Chief to Iron Man – but my favorite, of course, is his Boba Fett masterpiece.
McLane uses leaded stained glass to create these pieces, including the Boba Fett stained glass helmet lamp and a full pane stained glass window.
Check out more of McLane’s work or purchase a piece by visiting his website at www.etsy.com/shop/3rdEdgeStainedGlass.
Ever have one of those days? This vinyl bobble-head by Funko is painted in a solid green, and is sculpted with attitude. This item can be found at your local Barnes & Noble or other brick and mortar stores. The figure is also sculpted into its base and is built very solid. A great addition to any office or cubicle.
No tree is complete without the Slave I ornament by Hallmark. What’s really cool about this item is by pressing a small button on the ship’s side, the ornament makes sound effects, including two distinct engine roars and Boba Fett’s voice saying, “Put Captain Solo in the cargo hold.”
