Jeremy Bulloch | Boba Fett Galactic Classics Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:36546  
Name:Jeremy Bulloch | Boba Fett Galactic Classics
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Star Wars
Creator:GeekSummit  
Date Added:February 5, 2012
Base Figure:VOTC Boba Fett
Height:3.75 inches
The figure itself is a simple head swap with a little hair dye on top (paint). This was a figure produced of a minor MINOR cameo character played by Bulloch in Phantom Menace. I recognized him immediately but the decent Boba Fetts were back in scarcity when those came out. So patience paid off when the stack of these heads found a likewise ready stack of bodies. Vioala!! Jeremy Bulloch revealed as the man in the suit of the most hardcore and short lived character of the original Trilogy.

So I went and bought 100 of these plastic bubbles, like $30? They have a little hook spot up top for hanging in retail so I snipped that off and attached the remainder to this print adhered to comic book backers. I had this idea of doing a custom figure that can be popped in and out as you please while still having that standard bubble look. I had this idea of doing a custom vintage card but not a custom 1:1 card for every figure…lets face it that can be a lot of work and it would force some to not be as good as others art-wise. The art itself is an inverted photograph of a Stormtrooper of course… MY FAVORITE!!!,,, Kenner Rip-off and GM seal tailored to my own likenesses. The entire card is then beat up in PhotoShop to give it that "Look what I found in the attic!!" feel to it. But there is a mission here in these "Galactic Classics". I wrote a goofy "into space" prologue for the back that may be a little hard to read here so I'll transcribe it back out:

Not long ago… in my garage…

It occurred to he who called himself
Revisionist Toymaker, "Hey, why don't
they make this one particular staple
character variation from the old movies?
I mean if I can have 31 flavors of Clone
Trooper but I cant get one decent Wookie?"

"WTF!" exclaimed the grown man to his
doting wife who replies in understanding,
"I Know Right" He was defeated already,
she was not in his market of interest.

To the Man Cave he escaped as he had
so many times in his youth to re-arrange
the very atoms of action figures to create…

STAR WARS

GALACTIC CLASSICS

That's it… hope you like it.. I plan on showcasing the remainder of figures here shortly.

Thanks!!
