Many months late sounds exactly like GG's normal shipping schedule for the jumbo figures.

Wow. That's a real shift in the idea of the holiday exclusive. We always made sure people had them BY the holidays... not Q3 of the following year.

How does this go from shipping in Q3 to this week in the course of 3 weeks??? Pleasantly surprised but worried they don’t know what in the hell is going on!

Thank you for your email. The Star Wars™ - Boba Fett (Prototype) Jumbo Figure - 2020 Holiday Gift Exclusive has been delayed due to reasons out of our control and payments have not been processed.

We are not sure when they will arrive, but when they do, we will send out another communication letting customers know when we will process pre-orders. We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this has caused.

Please let us know if you need anything else.

Well, here we are a week later and the hold on my account has expired and been removed... again. How many more false starts are there going to be before Gentle Giant actually ships these out?

Love the figure. Hate the small cardback. I was hoping for something like what Hasbro did with the Prototype Fett from The Vintage Collection. That cardback is sweet.

What I don't get is they call it a holiday gift nowhere on the package or on the piece itself does it state that is a 2020 holiday exclusive. What is up with that?

Well the POTF Gamorean Guard was a PMG gift. I don’t remember anything saying it was on the packaging.

They use the slim card packaging on all of the releases that didn't have real release in the vintage line. (PS- I got mine last week too!)

I was thinking I am sure if GG continued the Joe line when they got to the mail in Hooded Cobra Commander. He would be packaged the same way.

Boring... How many Fett’s using the same mold have they done? 6? What’s next Glow in the Dark Fett? Well that actually might be cool.

What’s funny is they listed the Prototype Fett in an email I got from GG this morning. Seeing I pre ordered the ESB Vader. Clicked on the Link and the page was no longer exists.
