I love his clarification:

"this is the (never produced) mass produced bobba fett"   ::)

At least he changed the sub-title to:

"THIS ITEM IS POSSIBLE CUSTOM MADE"

I think if I was to get a rocket firing Fett custom, I’d go for one based on the version that appears on the cardback offers and the collector’s case insert, it’s just a lot more interesting than the pre-production piece.

Since the Rocket Fett is an injection molded piece, it isn't nearly as appealing to me as a pre-production item that features true artistic talented embedded into it, like an original sculpting or a hardcopy. Nevertheless, the Rocket Fett is arguably one of the most well known vintage prototypes, identifiable even by many collectors who maintain little to no interest in prototypes or the production process. I would consider adding one to my collection at the right price, but at the current market value that money could go much, much farther towards items I find more interesting for a fraction of the price.
