Most of us are on multiple forums so may have seen this but for those that haven't here is a new find.

http://forum.rebelscum.com/t1126711/

Thanks to Steve (the dark artist) and Ross Barr for sharing this on the forums. The gist of this is that a rocket fett with the mailer parts has been found and is believed to be a test sample of this as it would have been when it mailed out. The mailer is open, but the Baggie matches another Baggie example so it is believed to be authentic. A very neat find.

I read the whole thing , pretty exciting for people that have thousands laying around . I had a feeling it was fett related ..
cool find , not so excited to hear of the baggie and packaging as much as the extra rocket in case you lost one :clap:

There has been lots of information shared in the above thread that I was unaware of. I didn't know the j slots were supposed to have two rockets. Also didn't know the toy fair fett was not really suppose to be a rocket fett. Just so happened they used a rf as that is what was on hand, but it was made to present the card version and I assume they didn't have any regular fetts available.

Wow. That is really cool. I wonder how much he paid for it? That has to be the mother of all "holy grails" in the hobby.

I can't even imagine the price. Somewhere north of $25,000 I am guessing as I seem to recall an l slot selling (or at least listed for a very short time prior to disappearing) for that amount a year or two ago.
