LEGO Star Wars Minifigures: Gold and Silver Boba Fett

Now Showing
These gold and silver versions of sw002 are the third and fourth Boba Fett promotional figures to have been released in 2010. The first was the white Boba Fett promo that was handed out to attendees at the 2010 US Toy Fair and other AFOL events through the summer. As the picture below shows, 10,000 white variants have been made. The second was the bronze Boba Fett. There were only two of these variants produced. There are only two of gold and silver Bobas, and they are part of LEGO booth prizes for the 2010 San Diego Comic Con and Star Wars Celebration V. One will be raffled off at each event.

Minifigure Parts and Accessories
It's unknown at this time if these figures will come as one solid piece or if they have the ability to be disassembled into their component parts. The last minifig promo to have this treatment was the gold plated C-3PO (sw158) that was released in conjunction with the 30th Anniversary of the original Star Wars film. That figure did come in component parts. Its assumed that the Boba Fett figures are plated in 14k gold and sterling silver, and should come in the same four parts as sw002: head, torso, legs, and helmet/jet pack combo. Unless someone actually removes the figures from the display, we may never know for certain.

Big Draw
The big draw here is bragging rights and rarity. With only two of each in existence these figures could go for high values in the secondary market. LEGO.com listed the bronze Boba Fett figure as having an approximate value of $150 USD.
