Everyone has heard of the Rocket Firing Boba Fett prototypes, and some of you reading this may very well own one, but we're fairly certain none of you own a fully painted and carded example. The auction spotlighted in this edition of eT is for the only known carded Rocket Firing Boba Fett. This one of a kind mock up was made for display in the Kenner showroom at the 1979 Toy Fair in New York. With the hype around The Force Awakens the timing of this auction is perfect and we may see it move over to another collection again!

Engineering Pilot prototypes represent the last stage of pre-production. The subject of this edition of eT is not only a beautiful example for collectors looking to add a classic Kenner pre-production piece to their collections, it's a crash course on this stage of an action figure's evolution.

Repurposing their 1976 Aerial Aces Target Game, Kenner was able to offer their X-Wing Aces Target Game early in their 1978 Star Wars line. This item rarely turns up for sale which is a clear indicator that it wasn't produced in large numbers. If you want to add something most people don't have to your collection, this is a good choice... Even if it is is chock full of meh.

If the description is accurate, and considering the seller it most likely is, this could be the classic Kenner Darth Vader Collector's Case prototype to surpass all others for sheer coolness.

A fine example of one of the most unique mini-figure variations to come out of the classic Kenner era has made its way to eBay. Check out the auction for the mint on card Takara Darth Vader mini-figure. The Japanese toymakers released two versions of this mini-figure; the standard Kenner sculpt, and their in-house alternate sculpt (linked above) that was held together by as screw in the back. For a closer look at this variation, head into our photo archive.

Social experiment time. What way would you go to add the Chip Zdarsky 1:4,999 variant cover of Marvel Comic's Vader Down #1 funny book to your collection? As reported here earlier, there may only be twelve copies of this cover printed, and it features Jaxxon! (!!!!) At the time of this story's publication there are two copies on eBay. Follow this link to check out both auctions, and then let us know which auction you'd get behind to own this incredibly rare (must have) comic book.
