    Sideshow's new 12in. ESB Boba & IG-88

    Sideshow is planning on releasing a 1/6th scale ESB Boba as well as IG-88 and will be showcasing it at this years SDCC. A video has been released that gives you a look at both figures. They do plan on releasing in the future other versions of Boba as well.


    Here is the link to the video:

    They still can't get it right. I'm dying for the day they give full license to Hot Toys.

    But thanks for the info TXFett

    I think that's probably the closest I've seen anyone get on a small figure like that. I'll give them a lot of credit for putting the time/research in at least

    sideshow sucks. and i agree with seeker. they still can't get it right. i'd appreciate it if they would just drop the star wars line.

    besides the helmet pinch, what else is really wrong? I happen to think it looks pretty good, but then again I not a Boba expert yet

    That helmet looks fine....the only thing i saw just looking really quick through the video was the left should had a ROTJ skull....and the flight suit could be more blue but who knows what it looks like in person as far as color

    I agree that it's just not right but Boba is gonna be hard no matter what scale to get just right. I will commend them for their effort and hard work. Atleast this isn't just an import like the last few have been. I don't know how true this is especially since SS is definitely continuing with this line but I heard rumor a few months ago that Hot Toys was going to be producing 1/6th scale SW figures.


    I wonder if any of their research was done on this site.

    Okay, here's one of those moments where I feel like i've TOTALLY overlooked some simple detail. What is a ROTJ skull? how does if differ??

    They confirmed that today, actually, with the first figure being Bespin Fatigues Luke. Sideshow Collectibles X Hot Toys | Sideshow Collectibles

    Boba has the "old style" sidearm as well.
