Secret Fresh | INS: Fett Boy Custom Show

05.09.2016 – Boba Fett may or may not survive the Sarlacc pit in “Return of the Jeid”, but Fett Boy has enough bounty to give the Rebellion or even the Resistance a run for their money as the “Fett Boy Custom Show” was a success on opening night.

If you haven’t been in the realm of art toy scene these are not action figures you’re looking for. The Fett Boys is a figure sculpture from the same creative team known as Imagine Nation Design Studios who have produced its previous “Boys” namely TrooperBoy, Vader Boy, and C3PBoy with Spray2D2.

This year INS adds the famous bounty hunter that almost thwarts the heroes of the Rebel Alliance. Though he’s not closely related to Boba Fett he sure is inspired from the original that got Han Solo captured in carbonite and sold to Jabba the Hut.

The collaboration with Secret Fresh introduce the latest addition to the growing art toys exclusively produced Fett Boy, which is a limited release as the same with the previous iteration of Star Wars-inspired characters. For this launch INS produced a blank head based from Fett Boy head and was given to forty artists to re-imagine their vision of what Fett Boy is all about. This is the largest gathering of artist putting their hand on their unique take on Fett Boy since Vader Boy was launched in 2014.

The bounty hunter full figure edition just like its previous releases are limited and INS also produced a customizable head version of Fett Bot. The full figure is unique compared to TrooperBoy, Vader Boy, and C3PBoy as his inspiration is Boba Fett he carries a huge rifle and wears a jacket.

Ren Aliwalas the other half of INS has revealed plans to produce a smaller scale version of Fett Boy, but it will be for an upcoming convention which will also be limited in release that’s set to be revealed sometime in September.
