Now he's a spunky go-getter with everything to prove, and Darth Vader is his hard-nosed yet well-intentioned boss.
His backpack's got jets
Fett's Vette sold seperately
I think it's weird that one of the best selling points for this was that the jetpack was detachable, and not that the rockets really fired (which they didn't).

Later, Mom found the dog frozen in a block of ice in the basement. We weren't allowed to play "bounty hunter" anymore after that.
I think I saw Twelve-Inch Boba Fett on the rack next to Edward Penishands and Forrest Hump
With Empire not coming out until 1980, I think this commercial addressed the "who the hell is this" demographic.
...as did the smaller figure, which was a mail-order exclusive labelled with nothing other than his name and "Bounty Hunter." When Empire came out, the kids who scoured the film looking for the new character they already had as a figure eventually saw him in a cameo saying nothing more than a three-word line.
And then he showed up in Bespin, and ended up flying off into the sunset carrying the frozen body of Han Solo.
Right there, the seeds were sown for the eventual fanboy worship of Boba Fett (and thus, the eventual sucking-up that Lucas did by having Fett be a MUCH more important character to the prequels than he would have been in, you know, a well-written storyline).
star wars goddamn holiday special let everyone knew who boba fett was, as well as art carney and bea arthur.
Yeah, you're right, he was in the holiday special. But when the movie came out, the special was a year and a half old and mostly forgotten by the kids I knew (I was 6 when Empire came out).
This kid sounds exactly like Ralph Wiggum.
Awesome. I wonder if they reused old Bionic Man figures with the rangefinder eyes.

What, exactly, did that dog ever do to The Empire?
