The New York Toy Fair is long past, but a huge thanks to SirStevesGuide.com for sending images of some upcoming Boba Fett products that flew past our radar. If you thought there were plenty of officially licensed Boba Fett items flooding retailers last year, just as much product seems to be coming down the pipeline for this year.
An image of the Boba Fatt plush toy from Angry Birds Star Wars II was released last year, but the vendor, Common Wealth, showcased the latest addition to its plush line at Toy Fair. Whether or not you’re a fan of the Angry Birds franchise, you can’t deny the adorable-factor for this plush toy, and you can’t deny this makes for a great, low-cost gift item for any Boba Fett fans.
This next items takes me back to the 90’s – Yomega, a leading manufacturer of Yo-Yo products is releasing a line of Star Wars Yo-Yos. While they are selling a limited line of professional Yo-Yos – one such Boba Fett design goes for $130 – the company showcased a more affordable Boba Fett Yo-Yo for about $22.
Cardinal has been a longtime vendor for licensed Star Wars products. These are the items most commonly found at Target’s bargain bins. We’ve seen a few of its products earlier this year, but some more items are coming down the road including a 50-piece Boba Fett puzzle.
Boba Fett Fabrikation: Funko unveiled a new line of products at New York Toy Fair, featuring some of our favorite pop culture characters – including Boba Fett. The new line is called Fabrikations, which are 6 inches in length and filled with foam. What sets these apart from your usual plush toy is they have free standing feet and rotating heads. The Boba Fett Fabrikation is scheduled to release this June.
Slave I Keychain: There wasn’t too much additional Boba Fett products coming out of Toy Fair, but another new item showcased was from Quantum Mechanix, which is producing replica keychains of Slave I. The design comes from digital scans from the Lucasfilm archive and is made from solid steel alloy – crafted at a 1:400 scale ratio. This item is expected the second quarter of this year, and is priced at a reasonable $12.95.
Rubies Costume: Rubies had some new costumes on display at Toy Fair, including an officially licensed Boba Fett/Jango Fett children’s costume. This item is actually two costumes in one – you can reverse the costume to dress up as either Boba or Jango Fett.
Goodnight Darth Vader: Also earlier this month, Lucasfilm announced Jeffrey Brown will release a second follow-up to his hit children’s book Darth Vader and Son. The third book, Goodnight Darth Vader follows our favorite Sith Lord as he faces the challenges that come with putting kids to bed. Lucasfilm officials confirmed Boba Fett will feature a cameo in the book. There’s no official release date yet, but it should hit shelves sometime later this year.
Boba Fett Collector’s Helmet: Shipping in April, a new Boba Fett collector’s helmet is up for pre-order on Entertainment Earth. This bucket is made from injected plastic and is priced at $99. While it’s a nicely made helmet, the paint scheme and weathering doesn’t match the films.
Boba Fett Fingerboards: The company, Tech Deck, released its Star Wars collection in January. These miniature skateboards feature an assortment of Star Wars characters, including two Boba Fett designs – one on a skateboard, and the other on a longboard.
Boba Fett Tunic Tank: The last item on our list is a new product by Her Universe. The fangirl-oriented site has created a Boba Fett Tunic Tank, which comes in sizes X-Small to 4-XL and is priced at $35. It features a print of Boba Fett’s armor on the front, and a stylized jetpack design on the back of the tunic.
