44 years ago today in 1978, "Prototype" #BobaFett was introduced

In this clip, we hear from Joe Johnston and Ben Burtt, and also see Brian Archer and Duwayne Dunham, the latter of whom was in the costume; production designer Norman Reynolds also appears at the very end before the jetpack demo

Three "holy grail" Kenner prototypes, the original Prototype costume blaster, and much more were on display at Rancho Obi-Wan's "#BobaFett to Bo-Katan: The Evolution of the Mandalorians Exhibit" at #StarWars Celebration 2022 last month.

There's still time to order their convention exclusive 27 card set featuring annotated images: https://bobafett.club/91lam (ends June 17 at 11:55pm Pacific)

You can also become a member of Rancho Obi-Wan and you can take a tour of their incredible museum in Petaluma, California.

Not shown here, but the final display was a heartfelt memorial to Jeremy Bulloch, the late actor who originally played Boba Fett in "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi." They also had the stunt "Return of the Jedi" jetpack on display, used for the shots of him crashing into the barge (by stuntmen Glenn Randall Jr. and/or Dickey Beer).

Fun fact: Rancho told us that our website's Boba Fett collectible database has come in handy from time to time for them, which is awesome. Check it out: https://bobafett.com/bounty/

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

#ThisDayInHistory: Ben Burtt, responsible for the sound effects of #BobaFett and his ship, was born on this day in 1948.

"To create the sound for the Slave I, Ben Burtt did what he always did whenever he had to create a sound for a spaceship: look at how the ship was designed, how it looked like, how fast it would move, and what it could do. For the takeoff sound of the Slave I, Burtt combined a trumpet's whine with the horn of his own 1971 Dodge Duster while it was on a desert road." -- StarWars.com

In this clip, he's shown with Duwayne Dunham (left) who wore the Prototype Boba Fett costume for a screen test, hosted by Ben.

While the 20" prototype shown here has a great look, the price tag is $100 higher than the Premium Format "Empire" Fett and the gap between the neck and chest armor is too far apart.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: The one-of-a-kind carded rocket firing #BobaFett prototype from the 1979 Toy Fair is up on eBay at http://j.mp/1n6SN16

The auction appeared right after it was on Wednesday night's pre-taped episode of Pawn Stars (Season 10 Episode 31 "The Pawn Awakens"), where the seller (Robert) eventually rejected a $100,000 offer. (Perhaps he had to contractually wait until the show aired first?)

Looking at the history books, it looks like this very figure may have been up for auction at $100,000 in 2008 on eBay, which is when these particular photos seem to originate. Other posts suggest it's been up for sale from the same seller since 2002.

Here's a first look at a new Prototype Shogun/Hikari #BobaFett from Super7 / Funko, coming out soon! This photo comes via Chris Pirillo (@chrispirillo) who got his hands on the prototype for the prototype!

As you may know, before Boba Fett had his distinct look for "Empire," his costume evolved from a white supertrooper concept-turned-prototype. Many #StarWars collectibles recently have done this variant look, including a recent Walgreens exclusive (also from Funko) with the all-white Boba Fett.

Chris also shot video of his unboxing -- see http://youtu.be/MTeAWmb7Alo -- which included some digital onlookers like our friends at Yakface.com.

Funko #BobaFett (Prototype) now at Walgreens: http://j.mp/1FmJBIj

These are selling fast, so call ahead. Ask for the clerk to check a WIC (Walgreens Item Code) number: 907618. That's the number for the entire POP assortment. Then ask for "Boba Fett (Prototype)." According to our contact at Walgreens, they "have more coming and will continue to replenish for a year." #

Note that the first wave in stores does not include an "exclusive" sticker, but future waves will. This figure was also sold early to a Funko vendor in Australia, Popcultcha.

#FettFriday: #BobaFett's look evolved from the white "supertrooper" prototype to include bold colors, "eyes" or "ears" on the helmet (later called Jaig eyes), and a Western-inspired poncho.

Art director Joe Johnston painted this version, which involved two more significant changes, before it went to Sandy Dhuyvetter to replicate for use in "The Empire Strikes Back." #StarWars #BehindTheScenes #BobaFettFanClub

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: "I was sitting in a meeting with George, doodling on a piece of paper while taking notes. He was talking about Hoth, and I was thinking about a costume for that. When George saw this sketch, he said, 'that would make a good bounty hunter. Develop it and make it a guy with all kinds of gadgets on his suit -- rockets and so forth -- to defend himself with.'" -- The Art of Ralph McQuarrie (April 2007)

#TriviaTuesday: Here's a photo of the unpainted, rocket-firing prototype #BobaFett mail-away action figure (right), next to the regular release (left), both from Steve Sansweet's collection. This photo was taken for his book, "Star Wars: From Concept to Screen to Collectible" (1992). Do you know approximately how many prototypes are rumored to exist? And what are the two kinds of "slot" styles that they tried for the rocket launcher?

#BobaFett's first public appearance was at the San Anselmo Community Fair and Parade on September 24, 1978. The costume was worn by Duwayne Dunham, who also wore the all-white prototype armor. This photo was recently shared by the official #StarWars website in an exclusive interview with Dunham. Note the "eye" marks on the helmet above the visor, which were part of the pre-production look, but eventually removed for the final character.
