The 2018 San Diego Comic-Con is coming! Like last year, we are back to cover all things.
Here’s your very own checklist to all the Boba Fett stuff we know about in advance and/or as we see it. Updated frequently.
Acme Archives (Booth 5629) has multiple new pieces with Fett, two of which are convention exclusives:
- “Darkness Shines” by Steve Thomas, a Comic-Con exclusive variant. [UPDATE: This piece already sold out by Preview Night!]
- “Eyes on the Prize” by Christopher Clark, another Comic-Con exclusive.
- “The Empire Awaits” by Danny Haas, not an exclusive but is debuting on the first day. You can purchase a print on their website.
Hallmark (“PopMinded Star Wars” Booth 2913) has another SDCC exclusive: a new “itty bittys” Boba Fett plush this year. It’s slightly different than their 2015 release, and more like an homage to the Kenner Boba Fett colors and its original “Empire” cardback with the “fireball” art.
Thursday, July 19
- 11:45am: “10-Year Anniversary of Star Wars: The Clone Wars” (Room 6BCF), which may bring up Young Boba Fett, who was in the series. [UPDATE: See our post about what was revealed during this panel.]
- 8pm: “The 501st Legion: Star Wars Villainous Costuming” (Grand 1 & 2, Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina), which will likely name-check Fett if not include a cosplayer or two; Kevin Weir (owner, Imperial Surplus Armor and KW Designs) is slated to speak, too
Friday, July 20
- 11am: “Star Wars Collectibles” (Room 7AB), which may or may not introduce new Fett pieces from “by Anovos, Bandai, eFX, Gentle Giant Studios, Kotobukiya, Sideshow Collectibles, and a surprise panelist”
- Noon: “Star Wars Fashion” (Room 7AB), which might cameo some Fett — he certainly is popular on apparel nowadays
- 1pm: “Hasbro Star Wars” (Room 7AB) and probably won’t have any Fett references, but it’s possible…
Other days have talks, but nothing Star Wars / Boba Fett specific in the official program.
Sideshow Collectibles (Booth 1929) may have their upcoming “Mythos” Boba Fett on display, and (confirmed on Preview Night) they have their “Legendary Scale” Boba Fett available to see.
According to Sideshow, who distributes these internationally, Hot Toys has a new sixth scale Jango Fett figure coming soon.
Acme Archives (Booth 5629) has convention exclusive and convention debuting Boba Fett art (see above) plus more in their “vault.”
Gentle Giant (Booth 3513) has their exclusive (see above), plus their upcoming “Collector’s Gallery” Boba Fett on display, along with the Boba Fett Enamel Pin from their sister company, Gentle Giant Toys.
Hallmark already released their Boba Fett “Keepsake” ornament, which we saw previewed last year. It’s not a convention exclusive and can be bought on their website and (probably) their stores.
Beast Kingdom Co. (Booth 2849) has a new Egg Attack Boba Fett. While one blog lists as a Comic-Con exclusive, it’s only an advanced release here with 50 available per day. [UPDATE: See more photos from SDCC.]
Kotobukiya has their new ArtFx+ bounty hunters on display. When you buy them all, you get bonus parts to complete a Boba Fett figure.
Thinkgeek (Booth 3349) often has Boba Fett merch.
eFX (Booth 2913) has a special Star Wars booth. Their Boba Fett helmet was on display last year, but not yet for sale.
Lucasfilm (Booth 2913) might have some Fett items on display.
For more exhibitors, see SDCC’s website.
NorCal_Cap, Wasted Fett, LuieBFett and BobaFettHasCollegeDebt will be in costume as Boba Fett. Wasted will be sporting his own “Holiday Special” edition, which will be especially fun to see on Saturday, along with College Debt; and NorCal will have his unique Pre-Pro Fett on Friday.
