The new Boba Fett Funko Pop! Comic Cover Figure released today is a playful tribute to the galaxy’s most enigmatic bounty hunter. It stands against the vivid imagery of the Star Wars #42 comic and captures a snapshot of Fett’s legacy —a vinyl head too large for his helmet and a blaster that’s seen better days. It’s a silent yet amusing nod to the character’s unyielding coolness.

Boba Fett Funko Pop!, inspired by the Star Wars #42 Comic Cover, is now available for pre-order! To get your hands on this Pop Vinyl Figure, be sure to check out the links I’ve provided below – click to jump or keep scrolling for more details!

Boba Fett, the intergalactic man of mystery, is immortalized not only in film and print but also as a stylized Funko Pop! figure.

The Funko Pop! figure shows Boba Fett standing against the backdrop of the comic book cover of Star Wars #42, with his helmet polished and blaster ready to go.

The backdrop is iconic and reminiscent of the original Marvel comic adaptation of “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.”

The Funko Pop! figure is an ironic nod to Fett’s appearances and supposed exits from the Star Wars saga. It represents the shades of grey in which this bounty hunter operates—not quite a villain but far from a hero.

The figure captures the cool demeanor that made Boba Fett a fan favorite despite his limited screen time, with its whimsical oversized head and characteristic nonchalant pose.

This piece is designed to look like Fett’s retro comic book debut, adding a layer of nostalgia to the collections of Star Wars enthusiasts. It invites a smirk at the contradiction of Fett’s fierce reputation being rendered in such a playful form.

It’s less about the bounty hunter’s mystique and more about capturing a piece of Star Wars legacy in a simple yet expressive collectible.

Where Did Boba Fett First Appear in Comics?

Unraveling Boba Fett’s first comic book appearance presents a journey as complex as the bounty hunter’s own story. Despite common belief, Star Wars #42 is not the debut of this enigmatic character.

Boba Fett’s comic book origins predate this issue, intertwined with his cinematic introduction in “The Empire Strikes Back.” The intrigue surrounding his on-screen “demise” in “Return of the Jedi” only added to the allure of his comic book appearances.

Certified Guaranty Company (CGC) recognizes over 4,800 Star Wars #42 copies, which shows its popularity. However, the story of Boba Fett’s initial comic book entry began earlier.

George Lucas, inspired by Clint Eastwood’s “Man with No Name,” created Fett’s persona and introduced him in a unique white armor.

His public debut occurred at a California fair in 1978, followed by an animated appearance in the “Star Wars Holiday Special.”

By May 1980, fans saw two graphic adaptations ahead of “The Empire Strikes Back” mainstream release. One was a Marvel paperback that translated the film’s screenplay, marking perhaps the true first comic appearance of Boba Fett and Yoda.

Interestingly, Yoda’s appearance varied between the paperback and the later recognized green hue in the film.

Marvel Comics Super Special #16 shared similar content with the paperback but adjusted Yoda’s image to align with his film portrayal.

This publication, along with others like the Marvel Special Edition and Star Wars Weekly #127 from the UK, introduced Boba Fett to readers in different formats before Star Wars #42.

These earlier appearances, rich in artistry and narrative, highlight Boba Fett’s layered history in comics and offer fans a deeper dive into the bounty hunter’s story.
