The new Sideshow Collectibles #BobaFett has been unveiled on their Facebook page, pictured here at their booth opening today at the latest and greatest #SanDiegoComicCon. This is their new Premium Format figure at 1/4 scale. Prior to this photo, we had only seen an illustrated, waist-up representation of this new figure. It’s unlikely for sale at #SDCC.

Check out this photo of #BobaFett featured on the RPG guidebook, “Star Wars Gamemaster Screen: Revised” from West End Games in 1996. While this was mostly a distinctive cover reference only, other #StarWars RPG guidebooks have included the first appearance of Jodo Kast like “Tatooine Manhunt” in 1988.

The original soundtrack for “The Empire Strikes Back” in 1980 included the dedicated track for #BobaFett called “Departure of Boba Fett,” seen here on the LP record release. Future releases of the John Williams soundtrack bundle this ode to the bounty hunter along with other adjacent tracks.

"Boba Guitar Hero" by Kevin Ryhal is a custom LEGO #BobaFett and #HanSolo in a "mini" Chibi style. "Here’s Boba Fett jamming out on his guitar plugged into a newly-repurposed Han in carbonite," notes the artist. LEGO fan site Brothers Bricks imaginatively called this one "Boba Fret performing his guitar Solo."

#ThrowbackThursday: Sarlacc Food No More. In case you missed it, yesterday J.W. Rinzler (Lucasfilm’s historian) confirmed that George Lucas does indeed believe #BobaFett survived the Sarlacc.

While we’ve had no less than five Sarlacc “survivor” storylines, after Disney bought Lucasfilm, all of these Expanded Universe ideas were officially tossed aside. Yesterday’s public declaration on Rinzler’s Reddit AMA is only the second time Lucas has said Fett lives, after many times saying Fett dies. And this time it wasn’t just a hot mic picking up Lucas like at the 2012 Star Wars Celebration VI convention.

#TriviaTuesday: Here’s a photo of the unpainted, rocket-firing prototype #BobaFett mail-away action figure (right), next to the regular release (left), both from Steve Sansweet’s collection. This photo was taken for his book, “Star Wars: From Concept to Screen to Collectible” (1992). Do you know approximately how many prototypes are rumored to exist? And what are the two kinds of “slot” styles that they tried for the rocket launcher?
