Hasbro and Walgreens are teaming up with yet another exclusive! This time is figure from the 6" Star Wars Black line, Proto Boba Fett. This seems like a good choice to go with because it's not really a "must have" figure, so those without access to a Walgreen's aren't missing out too much, but it's still a really cool toy to have in a hardcore fan's collection.
Check out the information, promo photo, and screen-test video below:
While Boba Fett’s iconic Mandalorian armor has become one of the most famous designs in all of , it started out with a very different color scheme. In early concept art by Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston, seen in the accompanying gallery, the bounty hunter was depicted wearing sleek, all-white armor. On June 28, 1978, sound designer Ben Burtt and assistant film editor Duwayne Dunham debuted the costume with a test video (also available below), detailing its weaponry and functionality; the colors would later be developed to what has become Fett’s definitive look, but it all began with this early version.
Hasbro’s figure is a tribute to this important piece of history and design — look for it exclusively at Walgreens this fall, with preorders opening at San Diego Comic-Con later this month!
