There’s a slew of new opportunities to win Boba Fett collectibles, as a number of sites are hosting sweepstakes and giveaways. You could have the chance of winning high-end merchandise from companies like Sideshow Collectibles and Gentle Giant, plus a number of medium tier items from sites like Mint In Box or ThinkGeek.
Entertainment Earth is giving away Gentle Giant’s Boba Fett Mini-Bust, which was an exclusive item at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. The bust is 1:6 scale and features interchangeable arms and a certificate of authenticity. The winner will receive #1369 of the 2,500 limited run. The bust measures a little over 7 inches tall and is hand painted, and also includes a tin box that’s emblazoned with the insignia of the Mythosaur skull. You can enter at Entertainment Earth’s Facebook page.
ThinkGeek.com and Sideshow Collectibles has partnered to offer a Boba Fett prize pack. This is the ultimate giveaway for Boba Fett fans, as it includes a Sideshow Collectible’s Boba Fett Mythos Statue, ThinkGeek’s Boba Fett designer watch, bathrobe, backpack and a LEGO Boba Fett LED Keychain. Enter this giveaway at SideshowCollectibles.com.
French-site Mintinbox.net is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a special Boba Fett giveaway. By simply entering the contest at its Web site, you’ll be entered to win one of five prize lots. Prizes include a Gentle Giant Boba Fett Mini-Bust, Joe Corroney’s painting “The Slave Princess,” a Boba Fett Medallion, Star Tots of Han Solo in Carbonite and Anakin Skywalker, or a Boba Fett T-Shirt and five bounty hunter patches.
Another busy week for the Mandalorian bounty hunter, and another Boba Fett round-up:
In June 1978, the prototype armor for Boba Fett was revealed to George Lucas in his home. Last week footage from this unveiling was first dropped on the Internet. As a tribute to “what could have been,” Sideshow Collectibles is working on a sixth scale figure of Boba Fett in his white prototype armor. The sneak peek of the figure looks highly detailed and fit for any collector’s display.
Japanese toy company, Medicom, is releasing their second addition to its Vintage Vinyl series. This Boba Fett figure stands about 9.5 inches and costs close to $100. Medicom does not ship internationally, so collectors will have to scour eBay or luck out at conventions to pick up this item.
Available in August, Bioworld Merchandising is taking pre-orders for its Mandalorian Insignia backpack. The backpack appears sturdy and features the color scheme of Boba Fett, with the Mythosaur patch embroidered on its side. This item has a list price of $59.99.
Perfect for your “Little Fett” to watch fireworks this Fourth of July, Kohls is selling a Boba Fett folding chair for the discounted price of $11.39. The chair is child size and comes with a carrying bag for storage. Made of polyester and steel, the chair can hold weight up to 80 pounds.
Comic Images released its new collection of Star Wars rag dolls this month. This plush toy is a great bedtime buddy for kids (or adults) and the design is less deformed than the officially licensed plush toys produced a year or so ago.
Giveaways are popping up everywhere – including on the #BringBackBoba Campaign page. We are giving away a free trade paperback copy of “Boba Fett: Enemy of the Empire” to one lucky person on our Facebook page. You can become eligible simply by “Liking” us on Facebook.
To celebrate reaching its 10,000th “Like” on Facebook, The Dented Helmet is giving away three shoulder patches, featuring Prototype Fett insignia. This patch is designed by Dented Helmet member Skaught and the contest runs through Monday.
