The COVID-19 pandemic has altered many highly anticipated events in 2020. One of the largest is the annual San Diego Comic Con. It is a center for celebrities, major announcements, and the top cosplayers around the world. But the event is pushing on in its own way this year with San Diego Comic Con @Home. And partner Gentle Giant Ltd. has announced two new exclusives for the con.
The first is a Star Wars bust of the bounty hunter Boba Fett. It is based off of the original designs by Star Wars artists Joe Johnston and Ralph McQuarrie. While the design is still extremely similar to what ended up on screen, there are slight differences as well as two alternative helmets. It is a 1/6 scale bust that comes packaged in a full color box. It comes with a certificate of authenticity, as well, to be assured you are getting the real item.
The Boba Fett bust is available for $120 on GentleGiantLtd.com and can currently be pre-ordered.
The second item is Elektra Natchios of Marvel Comics. The figure stands five inches tall and has a fun animated-style design. Her outfit is based upon a variant cover. She, too, comes in a full color box with a certificate of authenticity. She is available for $49.99.
The Elektra figure can be pre-ordered on Gentle Giant Ltd’s website as part of their San Diego Comic Con @Home event.
While we still have to miss out on conventions this year, it is exciting to know the San Diego Comic Con will still exist at some level. Fans from around the world can still take part, particularly with the exclusives that are often sold at this convention. The con will run from July 22nd through the 26th and will feature over 350 panels. Learn more about the schedule here.
