In 1979, Kenner created a Boba Fett figure based on photos taken of early costume tests, before the character appeared on screen in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. The entire line was refreshed in 1980, and Boba Fett's coloring and package art were updated to match the rest of the movie's line. The character became a fan favorite. Now, Hasbro brings back Kenner-inspired coloring and art with Black Series detailing for a premium figure that embraces the legacy of the Star Wars saga.
Initially exclusive to 2019 San Diego Comic-Con, The Black Series Boba Fett action figure featured on this page is a Kenner-inspired repaint of 2013's #06 Boba Fett. In addtion to the retro color scheme, this version omits the cloth cape and adds an E-11 Blaster to mirror the original Kenner accessories. The figure was offered through EB Games at the 2019 Canada Fan Expo and is set to be available online in limited quantities via HasproPulse.com in September.
