BOBA FETT (STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL) Boba Fett (Star Wars Holiday Special) Animated Maquette from Gentle Giant LTD Animated Maquette

Only the truest of Star Wars fans know that the malevolent Mandalorian bounty hunter Boba Fett's first appearance was not in The Empire Strikes Back, but rather the equally infamous 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special.

Digitally sculpted utilizing rare Lucasfilm archival materials, this colorful and dramatic piece features a very unique look for one of the most iconic film characters of all time. Cold cast in high-quality polystone, this limited edition hand-painted maquette comes individually numbered and is paired with a mating certificate of authenticity.

On July 18, 2013, by way of their Instagram page, Gentle Giant Ltd. announced the production of the screen accurate Boba Fett (Star Wars Holiday Special Animated Maquette. That same day they put the statue on display in their booth at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con.

This limited edition statue went up for pre-order on August 14, 2013 and began shipping in September, 2014.
