The Bossk Action Figure Variant Cover by John Tyler Christopher for Star Wars #33 is now available to order exclusively on his website.
Words cannot describe how grateful I am to all of you! THANK YOU so much for all of the love and support. Luke was such a wonderful experience, and I have all of you to thank. I don’t care if you are sick of me saying it, I am humbled by these releases, and I just need you all to know that YOU ROCK!
Well, this has been a long time coming! The day after the release of Boba Fett, WAY back for issue 4; the first question I had was when can I do Bossk. At the time there were a variety of factors as to why I couldn’t do him, but I remained vigilant in my hope that one day I would be able to do my favorite bounty hunter. Even if I couldn’t do any of the others, I wanted to be able to have the toe-tappin’ Trandoshan as an exclusive for my site.
A couple of years past, and I was given an amazing opportunity to request a character that I wanted, within reason. Without hesitation, the first name I mentioned was my main man!
All systems go… but then we got pitched a curve ball. I touched on this during the Luke release, but now I can finally give you the full skinny. The original idea was to do Bossk in Q3, K2-SO in Q4, and then Blue Snaggletooth in Q1 of this year. With the leak of K2 we decided to switch them up. Then with the leak of Blue Snag, we decided to push him back again. AND THEN with the amazing opportunity with Luke for the 40th issue for the 40th anniversary, we decided to push him back AGAIN!
It totally broke my heart to keep pushing him back. This was as close as it’s ever gotten to me considering releasing a 5th book in a year. It has been SO hard to keep my mouth shut, especially now that the Jedi figures have started to come out. Lando, and all of you who have been asking, I’m supper sorry I had to just play coy. I just didn’t want to spoil him, or rush him so close to Luke. Trust me, this is really cathartic (and my book shelves are going to be really happy) to finally be able to offer the one and the only… Bossk.
