    I saw a few of these on line in the same condition as mine on line for ridiculous amounts of money.

    In all honesty it seems too good to be true, cold someone in the know help me out here with pricing?

    You might want to remove the rocket.... and check what type of rocket slot he has. I think that has a lot to do with his value...

    Couldn't find anything about the Hong Kong stamp...But he might be this item....

    Other than the $300 AFA graded one, the few on ebay go for $10-$15, based on completed and present BIN auctions.

    Get the impression there are KO of this.

    Other than the stamp, is there a different paint application or other variances?

    I don't think you can remove the missle. It's glued in. I thought only the prototype mail away missle firing BF had removeable missle. Those go in the $1,000s.

    I just checked mine, it's not the one with the firing missile - that's why the one I saw was worth so much.

    Oh well, I knew it was too good to be true, I never have luck like that.

    Aw man that's the same one I have from the old days, except the dog chewed it a bit. Never could pull that damn missle out. Used to try alot for some reason.
    Was hoping it would extend or something

    does it say © 1979 on the figure? I'm not an exprert in SW toys but I thought Empire Strikes Back came out in 1981. Wouldn't the figure have a later © date? Or was this a case of make the figure first then insert him into the movie. Seems strange to me...

    Boba Fett was released on a Star Wars card around 1979/80 late in the line. Very pricey. They did it cause he appeared in that animated segment in the Star Wars Holiday Special.

    Empire came out in 80. If he has the 79 stamp he might be the mail in one.

    I've just checked out some ebay listings. I guess I shouldn't even thinking of having Boba collection :( 

    So that Boba Fett is Holiday Special version? I am not familiar with the cartoon.

    Here is more info on the Holiday Special that aired on TV. It had a 10 minute cartoon in the middle-decent. Boba Fett appears in it. Almost two years before Empire. The rest is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo bad it makes it enjoyable to watch every now and then. Very campy.
    Weird Al makes a reference to it in his White and Nerdy video.
    Never been made available on VHS or DVD, and don't think it will. Can get on Bootleg.

    Pretty sure it's the mail in b/c Rebelscum lists a lone Boba for years earlier than ROTJ.

    Makes sense b/c my buddy had one like this and he said the rocket doesn't come out.
