a BOUNTY ofHUNTERS

Dark Horse Deluxe is proud to announce that the acclaimed series of Kotobukiya ARTFX Statues is expanding with the addition of the most requested characters from the Star Wars universe:  THE BOUNTY HUNTERS SERIES!  From the darkest chapter of the saga, Episode V:The Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader has summoned mercenaries from across the galaxy to help him capture Han Solo, thereby luring Luke Skywalker into a deadly confrontation.  Six of the fiercest hunters are assembled:  Dengar, 4-LOM, Zuckass, Bossk, IG-88, and the legendary BOBA FETT.  The enigmatic Boba Fett stands 11 3/4" inches tall in a dynamic combat pose,simultaneously flying and firing his flame-thrower.  His distinctive Mandalorian armor has been replicated with stunning accuracy, with detailing based upon the costume used in Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.   

Each of the Bounty Hunters will include special collectors bonus parts.  Once all six Hunters have been released, the bonus parts from each statue can be assembled to create a brand new, full-size DARTH VADER ARTFX statue!  Fett will include Darth Vader’s left arm.There will also be additional extra-special secret bonus parts included with upcoming Hunters so that Darth Vader can be displayed in three different poses. The Hunters will mount on a unique hexagonal base, which can be linked together on any side, creating a variety of display options for the full series of characters—including an arrangement that forms the Imperial logo!

With its large scale and impeccable paint applications, this ARTFX Statue is a snap-fit kit that can be easily put together in seconds without glue or modeling skill.  Look for a new Bounty Hunter each month, with the next release scheduled to be IG-88!

Boba Fett will be available through Dark Horse Deluxe starting on April 23, 2008 with a new Bounty Hunter release each month.  Each of the Bounty Hunters will have an SRP of $125.00.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
