There have been two incarnations of the legendary Prototype Boba Fett before. Hasbro and Sideshow Collectibles have both produced the legendary bounty hunter in the classic white outfit. Hasbro will go back to the well one more time, only this time, it will be for their extremely popular Black Series. 

Star Wars.com broke the exclusive news on the latest Black Series Figure:

While Boba Fett’s iconic Mandalorian armor has become one of the most famous designs in all of Star Wars, it started out with a very different color scheme. In early concept art by Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston, seen in the accompanying gallery, the bounty hunter was depicted wearing sleek, all-white armor. On June 28, 1978, Star Wars sound designer Ben Burtt and The Empire Strikes Back assistant film editor Duwayne Dunham debuted the costume with a test video (also available below), detailing its weaponry and functionality; the colors would later be developed to what has become Fett’s definitive look, but it all began with this early version.

Hasbro’s figure is a tribute to this important piece of Star Wars history and design — look for it exclusively at Walgreens this fall, with preorders opening at San Diego Comic-Con later this month!

Check out the retrospective on Boba Fett from Star Wars.com below. 

This is not the first Hasbro/ Walgreens Exclusive. Agent Venom was announced last month. Check out that figure and all the details HERE on Mania.com.

 Walgreens and Hasbro seems to be a strange mix until you consider the financial problems of Toys R Us. Where are people buying toys nowadays...from what I can see...Walmart and Amazon.  When you think about it the only outlet that could give those retail giants a run for their money is Walgreens the largest drug retailing chain in the U.S. with over 8,500 stores and a user friendly online shopping website.

Walgreens has become something of a mini Wal Mart. Niche retailers are becoming increasingly a thing of the past.
