Boba’s Back, and Hasbro’s Got Him

Pete Vilmur | February 14, 2010

Hasbro’s got at least three new entries for 2010 of the galaxy’s best bounty hunter, including the infamous rocket-firing Boba Fett figure that finally gets the spring-loaded missile that was promised in 1979 but not released!

Because of safety concerns in 1979, the spring-loaded missile that was to come with the mail-away Fett was permanently attached to the bounty-hunter’s backpack shortly before release, with the rocket-firing feature surviving on only a select few prototype examples that are now worth thousands of dollars.

This rocket-firing Fett, which appears almost identical to the 1979 vintage original, will be available as a mail-away with the purchase of five specially-marked Hasbro figures starting this fall. Also on deck is the Boba Fett role-play blaster and helmet (read more about the helmet here). Check out our Flickr series for more photos of the vintage-style Fett figure as well as larger pics of the blaster and helmet.
