|Boba Fett Large Size Action Figure Early Prototype|
|This is an early version of the 12" Boba Fett action figure. There are a number of paint and mold differences on the body and head
when compared to a production sample. For instance, this early prototype
does not have the plastic strip protruding from the side of the helmet
as the production
All the accessories are
prototypes and different than production. Especially the gun which has
several major differences and the belt which is made out of rubber and its
pouches and stitches are completely different.
The back reveals a battery compartment as this original version of Boba Fett was electronic! (perhaps the concept was dropped due to cost?). There are also subtle paint differences on the back of the helmet.
The backpack is completely different from production. The stabilizers on this missile have a greater pitch. The red stem of the rocket is shorter (this one possibly failed a choke test and was extended--difficult to know for sure as little is known about this piece). There are also some paint differences on the backpack itself.
