Super Deformed Boba Fett

StarWarsShop.com makes Medicom's Super Deformed Boba Fett figure available to American collectors.

The 8.5 inch tall vinyl figure, made by Japan's Medicom Toys, is currently going for $50 and is scheduled for an August 2006 ship date. It presents Boba in a more cartoonish super-deformed pose, sporting his Return of the Jedi version armor. This comes as a boon for Fett collectors', as you would originally have to pay at least $150 to obtain this statue.

These figures were originally limited to 2004 pieces and were only available at World Character Convention 18 in Japan, back in 2004. It came in a special collector's box, which had a die-cut Mandalorian Skull window. StarWarsShop.com is also packaging their super-deformed Fett statue in the same type of display box.

Medicom had later released a variant version of this figure, with Boba in his Empire Strikes Back armor. However, this came in a plain green marketing box. This variant statue was also hard to obtain and ran about $175 on ebay.

So, if you've been looking for this rare Japanese collectible, you can now save yourself some headache and quite a bit of money. It's a safe bet that this, like all other Boba Fett statues, will be a popular seller.
