Boba Fett Prototype Armor Action Figure coming to Walgreens


I still get traffic from people searching for the mailaway prototype armor Boba Fett. The figure was offered in 2011-2012 as a premium. Fans could mail in UPCs and get a limited edition figure. If you missed it then your search may soon be over. Walgreen has announced an exclusive six-inch Black Series Boba Fett in the white armor. This is larger scale than the 2011 figure.

The figure is up for preorder and will not ship till October 15. Its says not sold in stores. I don’t know if that means till the release date or if it is an online exclusive entirely. They also will not ship it to certain states. Here is their full description.

Highly Articulated Figure Looks Like Boba Fett (Prototype Armor) & is Armed with a Blaster
Figure is Part of the First-Ever 6-Inch Series of Star Wars Figures
All-White Armor Reflects the Original Design for the Character

Before he puts on the familiar Mandalorian armor from the Star Wars saga, this notorious bounty hunter was initially envisioned as a “super trooper” in all-white armor. This special figure captures the beginning of a character that has become a legend who is both respected and feared across the galaxy … Boba Fett.

Re-create the biggest battles and missions in the Star Wars epic with figures from The Black Series! This highly articulated figure is part of Hasbro’s first-ever 6-inch Star Wars figure collection. He looks like Boba Fett (Prototype Armor) down to the last detail. His all-white armor is designed with pinpoint accuracy — it’s as if he just walked off the set of on2_220-1e of his biggest scenes. You’re going to need a bigger shelf for your Boba Fett (Prototype Armor) figure and the rest of the Black Series!
