Boushh Magnet by Artbox

June 20, 2010

This is part of a series of 24 magnets featuring the heads of various Star Wars characters. They were originally put out by Kotobukiya/Tomy in Japan (as part of the Real Mask Magnet series), but now they are being sold in the US in Target stores. They are blind boxed, so you can’t tell which you are going to get, which makes their $3.99 price tag seem kind of high. I’ve been picking up one of these each time I go to Target, and now I have three (this one, plus a Stormtrooper and Biker Scout). They’re kept with the trading cards, which in my store are towards the front near the registers, kind of far away from other things like the toys.

They are essentially 1/6 scale heads, and in fact this is practically identical in size to Sideshow’s 1/6 scale Leia as Boushh figure. The paint and detailing on the magnet is not as good as the on the figure, but that’s to be expected, I think. This is the only Jabba-related character in the current lineup, although the Japanese series does include a Gamorrean Guard as well. Overall, these are quite well done, and a fun little impulse buy if you happen to be at Target.
