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.
Black series Boba Fett prototype Armor
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
Figure Stands 6 Inches Tall
Figure Comes with Accessory

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!

So what do you think? Will you get this version of Boba Fett? Do you have the earlier version?


Dungeon & Dragons Kreon Warriors


KRE-O now has Dungeon and Dragon building sets and mini figs. The Kreons are sold on blister cards and not in blind bags with a small vignette for the character.  The KRE-O site list army building packs for $2.49. I did not see these in store. What I did see were the Kreon sets and some of the larger sets.

I picked up a Drizzt set because it’s Drizzt! He comes with his scimitars, a bow, and a tree. The figure has detail on his torso and legs. The elf ears are molded with the hair pieces. The cloak has three tabs with neck holes. I like the way it makes the cloak drape over his shoulders. There are two display base included as well a typical KRE-O block and a flat round base.  I prefer the round one but guess they included the block for constancy with other Kreons.  There’s also a card with character stats. This sets was $3.99 for 22 pieces.

drowI will look for the army builder bags and may get some if I see any interesting minis.  The KRE-O page won’t let me zoom in to see what all figures are available. It looks like they have the basic character classes and some monsters. KRE-O blind bags are usually coded with numbers so you can tell what character you are getting. Until the list is published online, avoid duplicates by looking for numbers on the bags and making sure you don’t get duplicate ones.

Look for them at places that carry KRE-O  sets. I tried the where to buy feature but think it just list where Hasbro stuff  is sold. Every store listed said call store foe availability.
See sets and figures at Dungeon & Dragons KRE-O.

So do you plan on adding any of these to your collection?

Galaxy’s Most Dangerous Predator


As I near the two-year anniversary of this blog I thought I’d post some of my pre-Yoda Archives work. I’ve mentioned before that this blog was partially a result of a 365 project I did years ago. This is one of the Marco shots I did that year. It’s a vignette I made with Boba Fett and a Predator action figure.
