#ThrowbackThursday: Boba Fett visited the Kenner headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio circa 1978/9.

It's believed the photos were taken by Roy Frankenfield, with the flame and space illustration effect added later.

One of the shots was used first for the 1979 Toy Fair Boba Fett carded sample and then later the regular "Empire" Boba Fett release.

According to Chris Georgoulias of TheSWCA.com, there are approximately 65 L-slots and 15 J-slots out there, which can fetch upwards of $20,000 each.

On this day in 1978, over two years before "Empire," this prelim art was made for Kenner's #BobaFett figure. Note how he appears in prototype form as the all-white supertrooper. This work is based on Joe Johnston's sketches, dated one to two months earlier.

Helmet nod to Ron Salvatore and TheSWCA.com for documenting this information and archiving this image.
