....looks like a marble base, too. Nice.

If you want the best, most accurate Fett helmet, get the MR one. Every figure and statue rendition of Fett always misses the mark.

Oh, man, am I tempted. I was really disappointed with the Bronze Vader. Not menacing enough for me. But this Fett pose is great!

I would have to sell off most of my collection to make enough scratch to pay this thing off, though. Not to mention stop all future ordering.

Goodbye IM Exc comiquette? Cancel IM 1:1 bust?

Will have to think....but the Vader bronze sold out pretty fast, I thought, for something that cost $5K:google

Bowen really hit a home run with his bronze Fett. It's much smaller than the Sideshow bronze (I'm guessing 1:6 as opposed to 1:4 scale), but it is very nice. I love the subtle color highlights.

However, I like Sideshow's Vader more than Bowen's. Sideshow's is much larger and has more presence. Although it's not perfect, I think the Sideshow sculpt is better than the Bowen. I love Sideshow's pose, but I'm not crazy about the dull, black finish. But since the Vader costume is black, it is appropriate.

Can someone help me out here - Im not sure where the helmet problem is (maybe the dome on top is too large?) -- it looks just like the ROTJ version to me :o

Alice Adrenochrome

Is it flipable? Not that I buy it, but I just wonder. How about the SSC bronze Vader? Was that well represented on the bay? I remember it sold out pretty quickly, a couple of days maybe? Or did it sell out the same day but a few came back on second chance? Don't remember. I do remember though, that the longer you waited to order it, the more expensive it became or something. Or where the lower edition numbers more expensive than the later numbers??? I lost it. Heh.



I wonder why bronze statues are so expensive?? Bronze is a cheap metal.

I guess the artist's craftsmanship counts for something, don't you? And I also think that the bronze casting procedure is not cheap...

Does it require more craftsmanship to make a bronze statue? I seriously have no clue as to what the process is. I guess I assumed that they sculpted it in the same way as a normal statue and then it was cast in bronze.

Yes, if you like to simplify it, you're right!! :D But seriously, bronze casting is one of the most complicated and arduous casting processes around. There's a real good reason why it is not as popular as it used to be! I also think you'd have a very hard time finding someone that can actually teach you the process. It's a dying art.
Besides, by craftsmanship, I also mend the act of creating the dummy, the original figure. Sculpting is an art. And I think a good artist should get a fair price for his work. Guess a little something of that $5000 goes into that as well.
But bottom line, I think the bronze figures are that expensive, because the casting process is. And the less you make, the more expensive they become. The could offer the bronze Boba Fett for less, but who would buy it, if there where like 5,000 around? They would still be significantly more expensive than other statues though.

Congrats, Gruson. Hope you enjoy it. The Bowen Fett sure is nice, but the new photos of the Sideshow version look pretty sweet. I think at the price, the Sideshow is a no-brainer if you want a bronze Fett. Twice the size and a quarter of the price! Not to mention a lot less hunting.

Received email from Dawn at Sideshow that my credit card will be charged.

"We will be receiving Boba Fett Bronze #32 for your order the 1st week of October, 2008."



During August I asked Dawn to provide the actual Fett Bronze dimensions and she went the extra mile as always!

Dear Larry,

I was able to measure the Boba Fett Bronze directly.

Marble base is 12" diam. X 2 1/4" tall/thick.
Boba Fett alone stands 19 1/4" tall; on the Base he is about 21 1/2" tall at the highest point.

Hope this helps!

Please let me know if I can assist you further!

Dawn Sadowsky
