One of the holy grails of the toy collecting world is the incredibly rare and hard to find Rocket Firing Boba Fett action figure prototype! It was the only evidence of "what could have been" since that original Boba Fett figure was never released with its rocket firing feature due to safety concerns. Although the finished product was never produced, a few one color injection-molded prototypes did escape from the Kenner factory…and Star Wars history was made.
In honor of this legendary toy, Gentle Giant has scanned an original Boba Fett action figure, reengineerd the J-slot firing mechanism, and resized it to its 12” jumbo scale as part of its Vintage Kenner Jumbo Star Wars line. Rendered in the Rocket Firing Boba Fett Prototype’s original unfinished blue state, this unique collectable is the perfect companion piece to the previously released Rocket Firing Boba Fett 12” Vintage Kenner Jumbo action figure.
Injection molded and made of durable plastics, this jumbo figure includes a red missile and black blaster, is fully articulated, includes real rocket firing action, and comes packaged on a half-sized re-closable blister card, sealed inside a transparent polybag featuring the Kenner logo! This $80 jumbo action figure looks and sounds amazing, but there’s a catch. Only members of Gentle Giant’s 2013 Premier Guild can order this awesome figure (or select it as their free membership gift).
