Topic: Walgreens Exclusive "Prototype" Boba Fett Black Series Officially Confirmed

The Official Star Wars website confirmed today that the rumored Walgreens exclusive Black Series Boba Fett is indeed coming this Fall 2014. The figure will also be a pre-order at this year's San Diego Comic Con.

As some of our Facebook followers pointed out, this is a re-paint only and not a true sculpt of the prototype armor photographed in June 1978, prior to Boba Fett's role in 1980's The Empire Strikes Back.

Nevertheless, starwars.com had this to include:

While Boba Fett’s iconic Mandalorian armor has become one of the most famous designs in all of Star Wars, it started out with a very different color scheme. In early concept art by Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston, seen in the gallery below, the bounty hunter was depicted wearing sleek, all-white armor. On June 28, 1978, Star Wars sound designer Ben Burtt and The Empire Strikes Back assistant film editor Duwayne Dunham debuted the costume with a test video, detailing its weaponry and functionality; the colors would later be developed to what has become Fett’s definitive look, but it all began with this early version.

Hasbro’s figure is a tribute to this important piece of Star Wars history and design — look for it exclusively at Walgreens this fall, with pre-orders opening at San Diego Comic-Con later this month!

Re: Walgreens Exclusive "Prototype" Boba Fett Black Series Officially Confirmed

I want a 6" concept version. (Yes I have all the TAC 30 figures , along with gold coins of both fetts and the concept Stormtrooper)
This is a cool one too , but why walgreens? I looked for another exclusive a while back and they didn't have any. Hopefully this will be easier to find than the wave 2 fett. Also however , if there's pre-orders at comic con , why not just make it an online exclusive? Don't understand that. Hasbro did it with those marvel figures too , and McFarlane did it with those video game figures.
