US Toy Fair - White Boba Fett

A few weeks ago we shared on Facebook that select attendees received a white Boba Fett minifigure in with their take-home loot. It instantly became a much sought after item among collectors. Right now, there is one lot up on BrickLink.com for $750!

The question then came up, as to if this was just a novelty LEGO put together for Toy Fair, or if this somehow fit in the Star Wars cannon. It was soon discovered that in Ralph McQuarrie's original concept sketch for "Bounty Hunter", Boba was all white. Does this mean we might see a "concept" line of LEGO sets and minifigures in the future? Will "White Boba" appear in LEGO Stores at some point? Only time will tell...
