SDCC 2017: Guide for Boba Fett Fans

The 2017 San Diego Comic-Con is coming! Here's your very own checklist to all the Boba Fett merch as we learn about it.

EXCLUSIVES

Bluefin Tamashii Nations (Booth 3545) has a "Movie Realization" Ronin Prototype Boba Fett. Price was revealed on June 28th to be $95 with a limit of two per person.

Boba Fett is back! This time the galaxy’s most fearsome bounty hunter comes wearing feudal Japan stylized armor based on the Star Wars white-colored prototype armor seen in both Ralph McQuarrie’s original concept sketches of the character, and test footage filmed by The Empire Strikes Back art director Joe Johnston. With a Ronin-inspired design by artist Takayuki Takeya, the fully articulated Boba Fett figure stands 170mm tall and features a moveable head scope, detachable mounted armaments, backpack with removable missile, and an arsenal of weaponry to expand your display possibilities. The set includes a blaster rifle, Japanese sword set, weapons set, and interchangeable hands (x4). This exclusive item will see very limited release. Limit 2 per person.

Stance (Booth 2913-M) will have a new pair of "pop art" style Boba Fett socks to unveil at the convention next month. No word if they're really SDCC exclusive or will also be available elsewhere for their normal $20 price tag.

PetCo (Booth 2913-S) plans to have their Limited Edition Boba Fett Plush Dog Toy, which actually came out last year. But StarWars.com and Comic-Con.org list it as an exclusive... perhaps incorrectly. It's still $25, like it was in stores before.

Nixon (Booth 2913-J) will have their $2,500 Boba Fett watch at the convention. This came out on Star Wars Day (May 25, 2017) and is definitely not an SDCC exclusive as listed on StarWars.com and Comic-Con.org. It's still a limited edition of 100.

Her Universe (Booth 2913-U) has a Classic Athletic Pullover that's listed as an SDCC "exclusive" for $45. It features vintage artwork that includes Boba Fett. It also should show up on their website after SDCC, making it not really a convention exclusive as much as a convention debut, according to Anakin and His Angel.
