If you’re abundant and also a significant ‘Star Wars’ geek … OBTAIN YOUR BUDGET READY!!!
The most-rare, popular, pricey ‘Star Wars’ collectible ever before will strike the public auction block — a missile-firing Boba Fett activity number … and also it might bring around $500,000!!!!
It’s called the “Boba Fett J-Slot Rocket-Firing Prototype” — it was debuted at the 1979 New York Toy Fair … however never ever launched to the general public since authorities at Kenner stressed the “missile” might be a choking danger for youngsters.
A changed variation of the Boba Fett number was launched, however without the missile-firing feature. Still cool, however not as enjoyable! And, not almost as useful.
There are supposedly just around 25 of the unusual J-Slot Fett’s (with the rocket) around — a lot of which remain in negative form — and also the excellent ones hardly ever rise for public auction.
But, one has actually made its method to Hake’s Auctions in New York where it’s formally on the public auction block … and also followers are FREAKING THE HECK OUT!
There have actually currently been 13 proposals on the thing and also the existing cost is $133k — however the public auction doesn’t shut up until Nov. 7 and also authorities are anticipating a bidding process battle to drive the cost method up in the last days/hours.
In the past, unusual Fetts have actually brought anywhere in between $80k and also $150k — and also a comparable item was included on “Pawn Stars” a couple of years back.
But, on the brand-new public auction website, Hake’s approximates the worth might get to $500,000 … which is just a little much less than the $650k Mark Hamill was supposedly spent for starring in the initial ‘Star Wars’ film!
