Both of my McQ Fett figures have just one pocket, on the left leg.  The B&W version has two pockets.

Man, that is ridiculous.  I'd almost tempt another box before splashing out that much cash for one 'Brick.

nice.   Yeah  I'm sure the j-slot will drop in price. They always do. As long as we dont pay the high price, they'll drop.

Well, Jay couldn't make it Friday and I lost my will power after a few brews, so I opened up my S10 and Fetts last night.  I'll hold off on reporting what I pulled until our meeting on Wednesday.  I'm much more impressed with both sets after seeing them in person, especially the fetts (though why we have three different white versions I have no idea).

OK...super Geek question...
if you were going to put the Boba Kubes in chronological order what would they be?
Did the Kenner figure come after the Holiday special?  etc

That's a pretty tough question, since they're all from such different source material.  I guess I go would withthis:

1.) McQ Fett concept silly mask
2.) McQ Fett concept T-visor

These were the first two versions of the character's development.

3.) Holiday Special (aired 1978)
4.) Black and White prototype armor (screen tested for ESB)
5.) Vintage Toy (based on the color scheme decided upon for the movies, which sould have followed the prototype)
6.) Droids version

Droids technically takes place before ANH I believe, so you could argue for this one to move up the list based on chronology of events.  That said, the show wasn't created until the mid 80's, so that design for Fett was really the last of them.

For the chases, I guess I would put the J and L slot versions right before the Vintage Toy version and the more common chase right after him.

3.) Holiday Special (aired 1978)
4.) Black and White prototype armor (screen tested for ESB)

I'd switch the list a bit...  According to info from SW.com:

1.  McQuarrie concept - original concept for Fett
2.  McQ/Johnston Concept Fett - refined concept drawing to add the final helmet and armor

3.  Black & White Prototype Fett (from a screen test shot on June 28, 1978).

4.  "Color Prototype" Fett Chase (Fett first appeared at a California parade on September 24, 1978 and made mall appearances the rest of that Fall '78)

5.  "Holiday Special" Fett (aired on November 17, 1978)

6. "L-Slot" Rocket Fett (1979)
7. "J-Slot Rocket Fett (1979)
8. "Vintage Toy" Rocket Fett (1979)

9. "Droids" Boba Fett (1985)

I just didn't want to put all the B/W ones side by side, so I alternate them with the color ones.
