Did you hear about the 2-inch vintage Boba Fett?

This one slipped by us, as well as many other collectors. When Gentle Giant announced this year’s holiday exclusive would be a jumbo sized Yoda, inspired by the Lucasfilm Christmas card by Ralph McQuarrie years ago, they had a surprise in store for customers.

Along with the Yoda, sculpted in the vintage style of Kenner toys, came a fully articulated Boba Fett – that is a miniature version his vintage design and also on a vintage card. The clam shell is specially designed to be opened and closed – for those on card collectors.

The Holiday Yoda sold for $80, but the Boba Fett is now going for $100 or more on third-party websites. I’m sure many of us will be kicking ourselves for missing out on this awesome Boba Fett collectible.

Check out this YodaNews.com YouTube video for a full review of the Holiday Yoda, miniature Boba Fett and other goodies from Yoda’s Santa bag.

Target has great finds when it comes to geek culture.  The store near where I live always has a variety of Star Wars drinkware, ranging from The Clone Wars to Original Trilogy.But, this one of its latest items, a four-piece set of 16-oz glasses, finally includes Boba Fett. 
Each glass has the Star Wars logo, with an each of the four carrying the image of one character on each glass including Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Yoda and a Stormtrooper. The only downside to this product is its steep price tag of about $30.

If you haven’t listened to this week’s RebelForce Radio, then download it now to check out an exclusive interview with Daniel Logan and Tom Kane at last weekend’s Marigold Festival in Illinois.

Logan and Kane take a stroll down memory lane, recounting stories from the set of Attack of the Clones and production for The Clone Wars.

Normally, I’d give a rundown of everything talked about, but this podcast is so informative and entertaining – you really need to listen to it for yourself.

However, if that’s not enough to intrigue you – here are some items addressed:

  • Daniel Logan talks about how he landed his first acting role, and later the part of Boba Fett, stemming from his involvement in Rugby.
  • Logan entertains fans with onset stories, including, drag racing golf carts, swinging Lightsabers and how he learned his onscreen father was decapitated.
  • Tom Kane gives insight on being a voice actor, what it takes to make it in the profession and reveals behind the scene stories from sound stages.
  • We learn a little more about the unaired sixth season of The Clone Wars
  • Mandalorian Mercs reveal a special surprise for Daniel Logan

In his toughest match since the Star Wars Character Tournament began, Boba Fett defeated Emperor Palpatine last night by 53 percent. This victory won Boba Fett a seat in the final four of the bracket tourney and pitting him against Darth Vader in today’s match-up.

So far, Boba Fett has defeated a fellow bounty hunter, his father and a Sith Lord. But can he stand up against the fallen Jedi – Darth Vader? It will surely be a close match-up – one in which we saw in the pages of “Enemy of the Empire.”

In that comic, Boba Fett used his clever tactics to gain an upper hand against Vader. If he pulls a win tonight, he’ll face either R2-D2 or Yoda in the final battle to determine the champion.

Let’s continue to rally and campaign for a win for #TeamBoba. We are so close to a final victory!
