Walgreens exclusive Boba Fett? Walgreens? That's a new one.

Saw that on SWAN.  I'm thinking that this version is going to be Boba Fett in ROTJ deco.

This might actually work for me...  There are about 85 Walgreens stores around here.

I'd prefer a Vintage Kenner deco myself

Or they could go Holiday Special or the prototype armor. 

So many ways to milk that one...

Just heard about this today...it does seem like a stretch for them but I guess they are getting an exclusive 6" Venom figure too from the Marvel Legends line, so maybe it does fit.

Fine with me...I've never had a problem tracking down any of their WD exclusives, there are tons of them around here.

I'd love the vintage Kenner or Holiday Special deco, although the Prototype or ROTJ versions could be cool too.

Smart exclusive if true, it's basically a license to print money.

Actually, their WD figures are priced cheaper than anywhere else you can find them, such as Gamestop or TRU. They're usually around $13.99 versus $15.99 at the other places. So that at least is encouraging.

Plus didn't the screen shot already show this is going to be priced $19.99?

I ran into a 2012 Legends Qui-Gon a few months ago in a Walgreens.  It was $15.99

$15.99?!? That's Rite Aid pricing by me. Walgreens is the cheapest of the drug stores in my area.

I'm in Downtown Chicago so it might be higher than other places, but yes.  Also the sales tax in the Loop is 12% - so you're looking at nearly $18 for that Qui-Gon.

The prototype armor makes sense for this kind of exclusive.  I think the ROTJ armor might be better suited to some sort of a multipack.

That Fett looks great! I love the 4" version of the concept design, and I'll be happy to add the 6" incarnation to my collection.

The prototype armor makes sense for this kind of exclusive.  I think the ROTJ armor might be better suited to some sort of a multipack.

ROTJ Fett with a repacked Jabba and Slave Leia would make a slick SDCC Exclusive for TRU next year. On a more serious note, are there major differences between the ESB and ROTJ Boba Fett costumes that would require new parts? I know the Fett got different 4" molds for ESB and ROTJ, but I never looked too closely for major differences in the outfits.

Fett is a license to print money for them in any scale.  Love the proto armor though.  Have a ton of him in the 4" scale and love him.  Loved the McQ/Johnston proto armor one too.
