Hi guy's,

Just back from à local collectible shop and stumbled on à custom boba fett that looks spot on markpoon!
The only difference i know is that this one is completly in pieces,casted in hard plastic.
Hè told me that an enterprise of some sort called THE earth bought the RF boba licence and produced à 1000 of these fetts

I Will post some pics soon and if someone can sheddak some light on this its more than welcome,i really would like to know more.

Yeah, those look like Markpoon's customs down to every detail except someone busted them apart for some reason. The plastic on his is very flexible, almost rubbery. You say these are hard plastic?

I've got both L Slot & J slot versions of them. I've got my opened out of the baggies if you need to see pics.

As far as the association with the Earth - I don't know about that. Bought mine from Mark off RS.

the torso is very hard,sounds harder then a kenner boba.
the limbs are very fexible like you mentiond.

i was thinking a early markpoon one but on RS they told me the earth could haave done it.
i didnt have any pics up at the time but now i have and im waiting on response.

That's gotta be Poon's. Your pics even show the same style packaging he mails them in, just like the ones I bought off Ebay awhile back.

True. Maybe whoever originally took it apart was trying to pass it off as a real unassembled prototype. Smile

I'm 99.9% sure that is all Poons. I've seen a few of Theearths come up for sale and they were all painted like production figures and from what I remember they were converted vintage figures. You could send Poon a PM on RS as he's a member over there.
