Here are mine- ESB Kenner 41 D MOC, complete with wespon error smuggler blaster- the perfect weapon error for Fett! Was originally graded (80), but busted him out.

My fav though, is my childhood figure. Got this in my Christmas stocking- 30 back Palitoy. Customised him a bit, with kill stripes, scratches (with silver pen, mostly worn off and now has plenty of real scratches) and Wookie braids (long gone).

Also have a minty loose one that was knocking around in the back of a Slave 1 I bought in a comic shop around 1994-5.

Wonderful stuff! Love that 41 D card :-)

Great that you still have your childhood Fett! I wish I still had mine.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Jeremy 8) Didn't even realise it was a weapon error until it arrived, as it was unclear in the pics 8) So glad I held onto most of my childhood figures- only sold a couple when I was around 12. Kept all of my Action Force as well, but unfortunately sold all of my Action Man :(

PS- looking forward to seeing pics of all your cool Boba variants! 8)

Boba Fett! What can we say about him that hasn't already been said? Probably not much, so I'll keep this brief, especially as I'll be hijacking enough of the thread with photos as it is (mind you, I imagine Lars will probably beat me ;-))!

What I will say is that it took me quite a while to track down a Boba Fett as a child, and when I finally did (from Stevenage market), the card was not a Palitoy! :o :lol: In fact, I don't remember ever seeing a 30 back Fett anywhere in my youth. Granted, I wasn't specifically looking out for them back then of course, but I did like the Palitoy logo and certainly looked out for that... so much so in fact that I considered Kenner cards to be inferior... at least until the figure was ripped from the card by my grubby little fingers, at any rate! :wink: :lol:

Anyway, here's my Fett army. I have divided them up into firstly Hong Kong Fetts, then Taiwan, then a brief focus on the Taiwan painted helmet (I thought some forum members might appreciate a few close-ups; I know I certainly would have done before I was familiar with what one of them looked like up close), and lastly the Tri-logo and PBP Fetts.

Let the bounty hunting begin...
