See 'Star Wars' Bounty Hunter Boba Fett Like You've Never Seen Him Before [EXCLUSIVE]

As you wish.

Fans know the enigmatic "Star Wars" bounty hunter Boba Fett very well, from his first appearance in "The Empire Strikes Back" (and later in the Special Edition of "A New Hope"), to his apparent demise in the Sarlacc Pit in "Return of The Jedi." Oh, and that time he was a tiny boy and his dad got cloned and then he held his Dad's head or whatever.

Anyway, the important takeaway here is this: that wasn't Boba Fett's appearance, not by a long shot. "Empire Strikes Back" premiered in 1980, but the Mandalorian first appeared back on September 24, 1978... As a member of the "Star Wars" delegation in the San Anselmo County Fair!

Because most of us were born a long, long time later, possibly even in a galaxy far, far away, enter Jakks Pacific to help jog your non-existent memory. They're delivering one of the most specific, exclusive collectors items at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. And it's pretty flippin' awesome.
