Upcoming Walgreens-exclusive Boba Fett looks all-white

Walgreens is surprisingly getting yet another exclusive figure, this time in the form of a 6-inch Star Wars Black Series Prototype (white) Boba Fett.

While I’m still baffled by the fact that companies are giving Walgreens all of these exclusives (which includes a Marvel Legends Agent Venom and Funko’s Game of Thrones Legacy Collection Tyrion in his Hand of the King outfit), at least I’ve stopped thinking that these announcements are typos. Given that Boba Fett is the most sought-after figure in Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Series figures *and* the outfit is a simple repaint, it’s a logical exclusive.

The figure is based on the original concept for Boba Fett which would have made him a super trooper (ie, on the Imperial payroll) rather than the bounty hunter (ie, outside contractor) that we’ve come to know and love. The design has received a lot of attention in recent years, going from a design that most fans have never even heard of to something at least a few of them own between the 1/6-scale Sideshow Collectibles version of the character and Hasbro’s mail-order Vintage series one.

There’s no word when he’ll be released, but StarWars.com reported something about pre-orders opening at SDCC. I haven’t managed to grab the normal Star Wars Black Series Boba Fett yet, but I imagine I’ll be keeping an eye out for this version.
