My wife and I had just arrived at Kings Island, when a window display near the Eiffel Tower caught my eye – tucked between an arrays of vintage toys, was the original Kenner Jedi Starfighter – complete with a mint condition Luke Skywalker and R2-D2. The ship was loose, but in great condition, no yellowing of the plastic or wear and tear.

I wasn’t familiar with the specialty store, which was tucked between a food spot and roller coaster souvenir shop. I was in heaven when I walked into “I Love the 80’s,” coming face-to-face with a treasure trove of franchise collectibles. The shop had figures from a dozen popular franchises, but what really caught my attention was the glass display case, found near the cash register.

The case was filled with high-end Star Wars collectibles, the majority of items from companies like Gentle Giant, Sideshow Collectibles, Art FX and more. A large portion of the items were also Boba Fett related, including a neon sign, the Kenner Boba Fett jumbo figure, a few statues and more.

This was the first time I’ve seen the Boba Fett jumbo figure in person, and it literally left me in awe. If you haven’t seen in firsthand, yet, the detail of the sculpt and packaging is spectacular – images on the Internet does not give it justice. I’ve wanted this item for a while now, but left empty handed. All the items were priced much higher than you’ll find, even on eBay.

If you are planning a trip to Kings Island this summer, here’s a list of the merchandise they have in stock and the correlating prices. Like I said, the theme park is selling these items with a huge markup, so you’ll have to decide if cost is worth purchasing it in-person – or if you’d rather go online to grab these items.

  • Boba Fett 12-Inch Jumbo Figure - $125.00
  • Boba Fett Desk Lamp - $69.99
  • Boba Fett Art FX Statue - $65.00
  • Darth Vader/Boba Fett Mugshot T-Shirt - $24.99
  • Boba Fett Neon Sign - $99.99

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.

The Boba Fett bobble head released by Funko is a great addition to any desk or office. The 4-inch bobble head is made of sturdy vinyl and the bobble action, combined with the figure’s cartoony design, is great for alleviating a stressful work day – even if for a few moments.

There are a number of Boba Fett bobble-heads in the market, but this version is my favorite. Funko sculpted plenty of detail into the bobble head, including Boba Fett’s jetpack, utility belt and armor. The paint job is also cleanly applied and Boba Fett stands on detachable black platform.

The only downside to this item is the helmet faces down, so it’s hard to get a good look at the front of its helmet when you’re not sitting at its level.
