As Star Wars: The Force Awakens refreshed our palate for all things from a galaxy far, far away, it only seems natural that one's thoughts turn to the original trilogy that made the great foundation that the franchise was built upon. While he only received about 20 minutes of on-camera time in those three films, a fondness for Boba Fett remains with me to this day. And, apparently, I'm not alone.
Alan Ng's Fools Paradise company has been making hand-crafted art toys that attire their popular Keiko character in scantily clad renditions of Star Wars costumes for a while now, but their Boba K. rendition — a half-naked depiction of Keiko in the bounty hunter's Mandalorian armor — was always a personal favorite.
Recently Fools Paradise created a made-to-order release, featuring Keikotrooper on a "mechanical" Coin Rides Game version of a Dewback, which I had the luck of buying… but it has been quickly followed-up with this stunning second installment in the series, Boba K.Slave at Coin Rides Game #2!
Standing 31cm tall (that's over a foot), this PVC vinyl and ABS plastic hybrid is sure to be just as gorgeous as the first one in the line. Seriously, it's hard to describe how glorious the ball-jointed mounts are that allow you to move the piece fluidly from side-to-side. Available for pre-order from now until February 6th, this piece will be worth every penny of the $269 price. Order your copy here, before this simply becomes something you could've had a long, long time ago…

Wednesday, May 4, 2016 - 4:15pmWhat, did you think you were going to get a new Rogue One trailer? No such luck, aparently. But we did put together a gallery of some of our favorite Star Wars custom toys.
Friday, April 8, 2016 - 4:28pmHeck, yeah. I don't usually stay up to date on comic books, but I'm pumped to hear that one of my favorite artists is heading up the art for the Star Wars: Poe Dameron comic series.
