Boba Fett Prototype Funko Pop Vinyl Bobblehead Review
Given the immense popularity of vinyl figures and bobbleheads, the release of a white Boba Fett Prototype Funko Pop should come as no surprise to Star Wars fans and collectors. Like all Star Wars Funko Pops, the white Boba Fett comes with a Star Wars-branded removable stand and is a bobblehead due to the fact that Hasbro currently has exclusive rights to marketing Star Wars “vinyl figures” in the US.
The white Boba Fett Prototype Funko Pop was released as a Walgreens exclusive in the US starting in 2015. A fun fact familiar to collectors is the fact that the store name is misspelled on the back of the box, an extra “L” resulting in a grin-inducing “Wallgreens”. Later versions feature a sticker that conceals the misspelling, clearly indicating that the packaging was probably not reprinted. The front window also went from sticker-free to a rectangular gold “EXCLUSIVE” sticker, and later evolving to a round white sticker featuring a Walgreens logo. The same bobblehead was also released as a Underground Toys exclusive in the UK.
As is commonly done with white variations of Boba Fett figures and toys, the prototype bounty hunter’s bobblehead is a repainted version of the original Boba Fett Funko Pop which was modeled after how he appeared in Return of the Jedi. This most obviously results in a different gun, belt, and wrist gauntlet detail from the white Boba Fett who originally appeared in the 1978 screen test. However, where Funko let slide in sculpting detail they easily made up for with a subtle two-toned paint job that completes the striking appearance of this very collectible Pop.
