    Prototype 12" Electronic Rocket Firing Boba Fett Posing for 1979 Toy Fair

    Here's a cool promotional photo of various toys for the 1979 Canada Toy Fair. You'll notice the X-Wing Fighter, 3-Position Laser Rifle, 12" R2-D2, 12" Darth Vader (among toys from other companies as well), in addition to one curious addition front row right:



    It's the prototype 12" electronic rocket firing Boba Fett figure on loan to Kenner Canada (mainly for retail catalogue photography) from Kenner USA. You can tell that it is the prototype in that it is missing the rangefinder as well as the spring loaded rocket dart on his left arm. Unfortunately, the photo was airbrushed with blueish-grey highlights but you can also see the outline of the original LED readout on his left chestplate. This particular figure also found its way into various Canadian retail catalogues including Simpsons and Consumers Distributing (among others) in 1979.
