SDCC First Appearance Boba Fett $50.00, limit one per customer, sold ONLY at SDCC at the JAKKS booth in the Lucasfilm area

Boba Fett, Legendary Mandalorian Bounty Hunter has a long and colorful history. While many fans remember him from The Empire Strikes Back as well as his animate debut in The Star Wars Holiday Special, his true first appearance was as a member of the Star Wars delegation in the San Anselmo County Fair on September 24, 1978! At the time, Lucasfilm was headquartered at 52 Park Way in San Anselmo, about twenty minutes north of San Francisco. As part of harvest parade, Darth Vader and for the first time in public, Boba Fett, marched throughout the street waving to fans of all ages. The armor was worn by assistant film editor Duwayne Dunham and featured several noticeable difference such as the brightly colored blue jump suit, yellow and red armor highlights, as well as the “tribal marks” on his helmet; all altered for his later film appearances. JAKKS Pacific is excited to celebrate this legendary character and offer an articulated action figure of First Appearance Boba Fett or the first time ever!

More details on the pricing of Holo Vader and the JAKKS Pacific panel coming soon.

  1. That Fett is excellently esoteric. Up until now, I didn’t even know the colors because I had only seen the black-and-white photos of the parade, I got it confused with the white armor version (I had seen color photos with those markings at the top of the mask, but didn’t put 2 and 2 together).

    Vader being in IRL scale is cooler than it oughta be.

  2. Boba’s coloring is similar to the costume that was shown to Kenner and used as the basis for their vintage figure and cardback art—note the red and yellow wrist gauntlets. He also has the glove circles that were all the rage on the first POTF2 figure. The biggest difference is the “jaig” eyes, which were later added to Captain Rex’s helmet. I’d love to see Hasbro do a version with this coloring and eyes, but I have no desire for a 20″ version.

    I love holo figures and I love pieces that can double as props, so hopefully I can get the Vader. I won’t be able to attend SDCC after all, but lugging that thing around would be a pain anyway.
