A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, there lived a bounty hunter by the name of Boba Fett… Infamous for his inscrutable demeanor, mysterious origins, and mythic presence, the son of bounty hunter Jango Fett carries an air of danger second only to the ultimate bad guy, Darth Vader. With an equally villainous reputation as the D-Man himself, it’s only justified that Boba Fett have a BE@RBRICK toy modeled in his likeness.
A collaborative project between Star Wars, Stussy, and MEDICOM TOY, the BE@RBRICK creation comes in as a 400% (approximately 28 centimeters tall), shares the same subdued gray color scheme as the real-life character, and displays the scratched and scuffed details that make the armor appear to have been scavenged from multiple sources. The bear also comes equipped with Boba Fett’s badass rocket-firing jet pack (like a killer toy should). The figurine comes with a Stussy grahic t-shirt, featuring the likeness of Fett. The 400% BE@RBRICK goes on sale this Saturday, August 31st while the Stussy tee, limited at 100 pieces only, will be available as give-away.
In the Star Wars Universe, there is no denying the relevance of Boba Fett’s wicked. In Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, that epic scene between him, Lando Calrissian, and Darth Vader reveals just how evil Boba Fett actually is. How necessary is it to keep Han Solo alive, pray tell? Well, according to the head bounty hunter, “He’s no good to me dead.” End of story.
