  • This Boba Fett (Prototype Armor) figure was a Hasbro Mail-In exclusive in 2011 and 2012
  • The range-finder on the helmet is removable and can be moved up or down
  • There is no head underneath the helmet
  • The jet-pack plugs well into a hole in the back of the figure
  • The cape and Wookiee braids are attached permanently
  • The blaster seems a bit too big for the holster
  • Boba Fett can hold both weapons OK in his hands
  • The figure stands well without a stand and keeps its balance decently in even more dynamic poses
  • The belt and holster are attached permanently
  • Unfortunately - Hasbro didn't capture the original costume as well as they could have - this becomes quickly apparent by just watching the "Super Trooper" video on StarWars.com once
  • As pointed out by Ben Burt - both lights on the front of the helmet were red - not red and blue as on the figure
  • There is no holster on the prototype armor - instead there is a big white pouch - which is missing on the figure
  • There are no Wookiee braids on the prototype armor
  • The rocket looks quite different on the prototype armor
  • Why not go all the way and instead of including the basic cape - include the STAR WARS beach towel - which was used for the prototype armor?
  • All in all - this super articulated Boba Fett (Prototype Armor) is a very cool looking figure and a nice tribute - but with more attention to detail (or money spent on Hasbro's behalf) - this figure could have been much more fun for collectors
  • There is currently a video available on StarWars.com - which shows the prototype armor quite beautifully: http://www.starwars.com/watch/meet_boba_fett.html

Packaging Text

This limited edition figure depicts the first costume ever produced for Boba Fett. The all-white armor reflects the character's initial concept as a "super trooper" before he evolved into the bounty hunter he is today. This prototype design was unveiled on June 28 - 1978 in a screen test shot and is being worn by the assistant film editor for The Empire Strikes Back. In the 20-minute screen test - the sound designer describes the myriad weapons and features on this armored uniform for George Lucas and the Star Wars crew. For the first time ever - we have created this special action figure to commemorate the birth of this favorite character from the Star Wars saga.
