Boba Fett Like You’ve Never Seen Him Before


Jakks Pacific

Fans know the enigmatic Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett very well, from his first appearance in The Empire Strikes Back (and later in the Special Edition of A New Hope), to his apparent demise in the Sarlacc Pit in Return of The Jedi. Oh, and that time he was a tiny boy and his dad got cloned and then he held his Dad’s head or whatever.

Anyway, the important takeaway here is this: that wasn’t Boba Fett’s appearance, not by a long shot. Empire Strikes Back premiered in 1980, but the Mandalorian first appeared back on September 24, 1978… As a member of the Star Wars delegation in the San Anselmo County Fair!

Because most of us were born a long, long time later, possibly even in a galaxy far, far away, enter Jakks Pacific to help jog your non-existent memory. They’re delivering one of the most specific, exclusive collectors items at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. And it’s pretty flippin’ awesome.

Hey, how about some details — and your first good look at the SDCC First Appearance Boba Fett?

The SDCC First Appearance Boba Fett costs $50.


It’s limited to one per customer.

It will be only sold at the JAKKS booth in the Lucasfilm area booth (#2913U).

At the time (1978), 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 differences.

For example, a brightly colored blue jump suit…

…yellow and red armor highlights…

…as well as the “tribal marks” on his helmet.

There’s only one rule…

…if you’re going to pick this up at San Diego:
No disintegrations.
