Record-setting public sale yesterday: this "J-slot" rocket-firing #BobaFett prototype sold for $204,435 via Hake's Auctions

The front looks like a normal vintage Boba but the back of authentic and often unpainted Kenner protos are what's unique – rare "J" and less rare "L" slots

This one even had an AFA 50 VG status due to the normally longer firing stem bring broken, presumably due to testing at Kenner... yet sold after 27 bids for $18,585 more than the last previously known "J-slot" auction back in 2019, which had a higher AFA grade

The man behind the mask of this vintage "Return of the Jedi" photo shoot could be Joe Gibson

Yet to be confirmed for sure, the autograph on this #BobaFett photo might be the smoking gun ... literally

Joe wasn't just a stand-in: he played a Snowtrooper and a Stormtrooper in "Empire" and a Gamorrean Guard in "Jedi"

The ship was a re-paint of an earlier "The Clone Wars" Slave I from 2010 and the Han Solo in Carbonite was a re-paint of the "The Saga Collection" version from 2006. A #BobaFett figure was not included in the box. "The Vintage Collection" intentionally had packaging to resemble the original look from 1980 with some slight changes.

#ThrowbackThursday: This vintage ad for the Palitoy #BobaFett figure in 1980 is both badass and cheesy.

According to the Palitoy Advert Archive, which was authored by David Tree ("All The Cool Stuff") who tracked down all the original commercials and paid PRS licensing fees before selling DVDs, this ad ran on April 7, 1980.

Helmet nod to Clark Kent and Mike R for sharing versions of this classic on YouTube.

#ThrowbackThursday: Sticker for the "Power of the Force" mail-away exclusive #BobaFett coin in 1985.

This one comes to us via The Force Emporium, who's selling vintage ones on eBay: http://j.mp/1UCOERe

One of 62 coins in the #StarWars series, this coin was only available by random via mail. It was never put on a card -- except for one made for the Toy Fair catalog that year. For more trivia, see http://bobafett.com/bounty/toys/potf/potf_coin/

#FlashbackFriday: "#BobaFett's on my trail!" In this board game from 1980 called "Hoth Ice Planet Adventure Game," did you know it took 7 or 8 "Force" cards to battle Boba Fett? The bounty hunter also appeared in illustrated form on the instruction manual for the game.

Helmet nod to #TheDentedHelmet who shared an image from this treasure yesterday.

#TriviaTuesday: Rocket-firing #BobaFett figure, a mail-away exclusive from Hasbro in 2010. This is different from both the original "L" prototype and also some of the foreign vintage releases with removable rockets. Can you spot all of the other differences that separate this uncommon figure from an ultra-rare original?

This carded Kubrick Vintage Toy Type L Prototype #BobaFett has been spotted at the Medicom Toy Exhibition '15, which started yesterday (#FettFriday) at the Parco Museum in Japan.

Opening night guests were given this figure. The same figure ("Vintage Toy Prototype") was initially available uncarded in 2009.

#ThrowbackThursday: Do you have an original #BobaFett action figure?

Between 1979 and 1983, the same mold for the figure was available carded and by mail-away (via proofs-of-purchase or Sears). The spring-loaded rocket pack was never produced beyond some small handful of prototypes, while some foreign versions have removable rocket pieces.

There are some noticeable differences between the figures, such as the embossed copyright mark on the leg either noting Hong Kong (light brown belt and visor), Taiwan (medium blue vs. light blue), or simply no country of origin (COO). But there are also some subtle paint and craftsmanship variations between the Kenner (USA), Kenner Tri-Logo (European, e.g. darker brown), Palitoy (UK), Poch/PBP (Spain, e.g. lighter olive green chest armor, brighter red visor and right wrist gauntlet, and deformations on the legs and rocket tip), Lili Ledy (Mexico), and Meccano (France) releases.

Present-day photo of the vintage figure by Skeleton Astronaut, shared with us on our public group on Flickr. Special thanks to @Phu_77 (Instagram) for all the information he's shared to help fact-check this post.

#FettFriday: Joe Johnston's Sketches in the "Empire Strikes Back Sketchbook" (1980)

Excerpt: "While most of the film's costume design originated in England, Ralph McQuarrie and [Joe] Johnston designed the Boba Fett outfit at Industrial Light and Magic in California. The costume was built at EMI in London, and then shipped back to Johnston to be painted. Originally the Boba Fett costume was intended to be worn by a squad of supercommandos, troops from the Mandalore system armed with weapons built into their suits. But the costume was adapted for the Boba Fett character by aging, denting, and adding a colorful paint job to one of these suits, while keeping the wrist lasers, flying backpack, and rocket darts originally intended for the supercommandos." #

#ThisMonthInHistory: Marvel Star Wars #42 was published September 23 yet had a December 1980 date on the top left.

But this first comic book appearance of #BobaFett mirrored the same content in Marvel Comics Super Special #16 (bottom left; dated May 1, 1980), Marvel Illustrated Books: The Empire Strikes Back (top right; dated May 1, 1980), and Marvel Special Edition 2: The Empire Strikes Back (bottom right; dated Spring 1980). To add to the mix, you could include the U.K.'s The Empire Strikes Back Weekly #129 released August 14, 1980.

Oddly enough, despite those copyright dates, those variants contained issues #39-44, which makes us wonder which one really came first after all.

(Caption updated for further clarity. Vintage comic dates on the top left were often considered back then months to pull the issue off newsstands.)

#ThrowbackThursday / #ThrowforwardThursday: Marvel's 2015 Line-up for Fett Looks ... Familiar

This first move for present-day Marvel working with Fett is actually something we've already seen before. It's a re-do of their Star Wars #68 comic from 1983. In fact, this isn't even Boba Fett; it's Tobbi Dala and Fenn Shysa (two Mandalorians) who make an appearance.

Here's hoping to something new in 2015.

#ThrowbackThursday: the vintage animated television series "Droids" included one episode with #BobaFett back in 1985 called "A Race to the Finish."

Boba Fett was voiced by Don Francks (not George Buza). The episode was directed by Raymond Jafelice and written by both Peter Sauder and Steven Wright. It was made by Nelvana, the same studio who did the "#StarWars Holiday Special" animated debut of Boba Fett in 1978.
