Boba Fett Metal Model by Knight Models

July 12, 2013

Ever since Knight Models released their Jabba the Hutt model kit, I’ve been slowly collecting the other models in their line that might conceivably go with their Jabba. So far, this has included a Gamorrean Guard and Leia as Boushh. They stopped producing Star Wars models a while ago, which has made these difficult to find. Boba Fett in particular was a little tricky to get at a good price, but I finally found one a while ago. I just got around to putting it together today.

Unlike the Jabba or the Gamorrean kits (which were partially resin or plaster), Boba is all metal. He comes in 10 pieces, but several of them are very small. On the left in the picture above, you can see the antenna, wookie braid, and rifle strap. They could easily be mistaken for pieces of scrap metal or flash, and I’ve even seen some painted examples that don’t include them. Maybe that was intentional, but it’s possible they didn’t even realize what they were.

Obviously, with all of these small parts, it’s rather delicate, although not as bad as some of the parts on the Jabba model (like Salacious Crumb’s ears).

You can see the antenna, rifle strap and wookie braid in place here.

Here it is with the other pieces that I have yet to paint. I still think the Gamorrean is too big, and maybe Leia is too small, but they don’t look bad together.

This is the official example paint job. I don’t know when I’ll get a chance to paint mine up .

    Do you remember what you paid for the Gamorrean? I’d like to try to pick one up, I’ve been wanting to have another crafty project to do.

      It was $32, plus some rather expensive shipping from Europe. But that was more than a year ago, and I think they’re getting pretty difficult to find now. There aren’t any on eBay that I can see.

    Hi,
    I have still in the tin: KM – Boba Fett, Chewbacca, and Jabba the Hutt. Do you know of anyone who might be interested in them? I have no idea how much they are worth, do you have any idea? Thanks, have a nice day.

      Really the only way to guess about the value is to search completed auctions on eBay.
