The price is really astronomical! I mean, who in the world would ever buy such a toy?
This vintage Star Wars Boba Fett (1979) action figure made by Kenner is one of three extremely rare action figures of the infamous bounty hunter that comes with a firing rocket pack.
The firing rocket pack doesn't work at all because "Kenner reconsidered it not only an eye-hazard, but the small ‘rocket’ could pose risk of choking by kids who didn’t know better."
According to the official Boba Feet Fan Club, there are no more than 30 of this item at this point (though perhaps buyers can find one at a lower cost).
However, the main difference that separates the one selling for $365,000 from the rest is a copyright mark embossed on the back of the leg.
The copyright mark also bears some significance: it means this little guys is a final sculpt that was ready for production. Moreover, it has a rocket that “has four sides instead of the more common eight, and it is said that it has the rarer “L-shaped” firing mechanism as opposed to the J-shape that other examples purportedly had.
Well, the seller might have all the rights to make that quote but I'm not really convinced.
