Boba Fett Life Size Statue

Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back


Tom Spina Designs created the prototypes for this officially licensed Star Wars product by Sideshow Collectibles! 


After sculpting the Figrin D'an bust for Sideshow Collectibles, TSD once again worked with their incredible team to expand their life-sized Star Wars offerings.


The goal was to create an extremely accurate and lifelike Boba Fett statue that looked like it came right out of the movie. With the massively complex costume, prototyping this figure was no small undertaking!


Originally revealed at San Diego Comic Con, the life size statue is now available for order!  Everyone involved, both those working with Tom Spina Designs and those at Sideshow Collectibles are proud to finally showcase this piece after many months of effort.


You'll find full details on the Sideshow site (click the banner on the top left to view their item page) but many people worked extremely hard to create this statue and all of the intricate details of Boba Fett's costume:


Chris Jones created the custom mannequin body and mandolorian armor. Rich Krusell created the movie accurate boots (and wore them while we molded his feet!). Brian Lewis, Mike Thomas, Patrick Louie, Melissa Dooley and Tom Spina refined the parts for production and created some of the accessories such as the "wookiee" scalps and cape. Mike Mason provided masters for the blasters. Christian Hill provided the jetpack master. Tony Turner and Kitty Hebert tackled the soft goods and belts. Richard Riley was our inspiration for the base design. Alex Alva, Jason Miller and the "New Wookiee Workshop" did the final assembly and paint and the Sideshow design team added their own finishing touches.


Special thanks to Philip Wise and also to Art Andrews for his help in fining great rare reference photos of the original Boba Fett movie costume!


Also thanks to the good folks at www.Rebelscum.com for use of their photos from SDCC!

Another look at the prototype in progress, showing just how complex and loaded with detail Boba Fett's costume is!

To achieve natural looking boots in a solid form, Rich Krusell created canvas shoes, which we then molded while he wore them!
