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 1994-5.20191230_120622.jpg

Wow that is a fantastic moc and also a nice mint figure. Thanks for sharing them. Great story about your childhood boba, I never had one when I was a kid. Boba was very hard to find in the stores when I was a kid, I never saw him in the stores in denmark.

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...

Hong Kong Fetts:

Hong Kong Bullochs - 05.jpg

Hong Kong Bullochs - 06.jpg

Hong Kong Bullochs - 07.jpg

Hong Kong Bullochs - 08.jpg

Hong Kong Bullochs - 09.jpg

Hong Kong Bullochs - 10.jpg
Wow that is what I will call a boba fett army, thanks for sharing your fantastic collection and all the great info about the figures 8)

Here are my cardbacks and loose figures. I never had one when I was a kid, I never saw them in the stores in denmark. But I have found a lot of them in danish childhood lots so I guess I was just not lucky to find one when I was a kid in the good old 80s. The beater boba fett has a very rare coo or maybe a production error coo, I am still not sure about that. Some years ago I also had a mint one with the same coo. But I fellow dane who is a friend of mine has a huge boba fett focus, he has nearly 200 boba fett figures and he was missing the one with that coo. So he offered me something that I could not say no to, 17 cardbacks with danish price stickers on them all and if he ever wanted to sell it then I will get the first offer to get it back, who can say no to that. So I traded the mint one, I hope I can replace the beater in the future with a mint one again.

Another stellar collection, Lars, and I was right, you were able to beat my total! :lol:

Can I assume the rare COO figure is the unusually coloured one on the right-hand end in the 3rd photo? It almost looks like a bootleg version or a custom paint job with those colours! Very nice, and thanks for sharing your collection, as always.

Thanks mate for the kind words, I have no idea I am not an TT expert, maybe jason can help with it ? :?

I tried to track it back where I got it from and I found some pictures of the lot, I bought it from a fellow dane there was here on the forum named michael in februar 2014. There was 112 cardbacks in the lot and a millennium falcon with box :D

Thanks mate for the kind words, you beat me with the pbp fett's I really love them so much. Most of mine is picked up in childhood lots and loft finds and PBP boba is not one I find so much in denmark.

Yep it is custom painted, I guess by a kid, I had mint one that I found in spain. But I traded it away for some cardbacks. I still have a picture of the mint one, but I do not have it anymore, maybe I get luck that my friend will sell it back one day or maybe I will find another one that is better than the one I have, I guess any figure with the same coo would be an upgrade :lol:
