The original Boba Fett from
Any good list of the most valuableBrickLink over the past six months. Current listings, meanwhile, average out at £3,022 new and £1,622 used.
It’s one seriously rare minifigure that’s still seriously sought-after by collectors, as those prices demonstrate. But there’s apparently a variant of this Boba Fett minifigure that’s even harder to come by – and presumably, therefore, worth even more cash to collectors.
According to lsw_misprint_collector, the minifigure included in production copies of 10123 Cloud
Pictured above side-by-side with the Boba Fett minifigure that made it on to shelves – the finished version is on the left, while the alleged prototype is on the right – the differences are subtle, but they’re more than just a straightforward recolour. Whether the variant minifigure is the real deal or just a convincing custom is tricky to verify, however.
Perhaps adding some fuel to the fire, a proto-Fett minifigure did show up back in 2015, through a collector located in France. Minifigure Price Guide published images of a series of prototype minifigures supposedly acquired at an event in Billund in early 2000, and among them was a Boba Fett Cloud
That could be literally the same minifigure now in the hands of lsw_misprint_collector, who says on Instagram that they’ve been hunting the prototype version down for six years. It’s unlikely we’ll ever learn whether this is an official prototype, and – as you’d expect – there’s no readily available financial data (to match the production version of the bounty hunter).
All of which makes it practically impossible to put a price on this Boba Fett variant, but it’s not difficult to imagine its value soaring above and beyond the regular minifigure. And that’s already in the solid four-figure region, so…
