As much excitement as there is over the upcoming “Star Wars: Episode VII,” there’s just as much interest in the standalone — of spinoff — “Star Wars” movies that Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg overseeing. Characters like Yoda and Han Solo have been rumored to be the subjects of the movies, but now a source is saying that bounty hunter Boba Fett will be the focus of the first.
“One of them is Boba Fett. It is. I know. I know for a fact,” Schnepp said. “I will never reveal my source, but it is the one written by Lawrence Kasdan.”
That would make sense, since Kasdan’s “Empire Strikes Back” first introduced the now-iconic character. And since Disney has confirmed that the standalone movies will be origin stories, a Boba Fett movie could focus on his early years as a bounty hunter.
The first “Star Wars” standalone movie is expected to be released in 2016, a year after “Star Wars: Episode VII.”
Retro Outlaw will be releasing the ultimate in mashups as they take infamous Star Wars bounty hunter, Boba Fett, and cross him with iconic daredevil, Evel Knievel, to produce a 12” vinyl “Evel Fett” figure (cane included!)!
Although the figure is in the prototype phase and I can’t include a picture yet, here are some details. The figure will be limited as an SDCC exclusive. Additionally, this figure will be Retro Outlaw’s first foray into the vinyl toy world and will feature professional packaging. There will be four color variations produced. One variant will be red, white and blue and another will be a glow-in-the-dark. The other two styles have not yet been announced.
Pricing is also still to be announced, so make sure to keep an eye on their website (http://retrooutlaw.com/).

So, I stopped the list this year at 108 items. I probably could have added another 25+ items, but I am tired. I started the list back in April, so I spent 4 months on it. I am already thinking of a different way to format it for next year (perhaps even offering a PDF you can print with photos).
So, as of today, we have 108 San Diego Comic Con 2011 Exclusives listed with Photos.
Thanks to all of you who visited our site during Comic Con.
San Diego Comic Con, which unsurprisingly sold out in a single day this year, traditionally has many exclusive items that fans can only purchase at the show. As part of New York Toy Fair, Hasbro has revealed that their Star Wars exclusive item will be a big one: a 14-figure set in Death Star themed collector’s packaging.
The figures will be a selection from this years vintage line, printed on rare Revenge of the Jedi card backs. While these individual figures will be available elsewhere, the variant card backs will be hard to find in the wild. For those not familiar with the story, Return of the Jedi was originally slated to be titled Revenge of the Jedi. Late in production, George Lucas decided to make the change to a more lighthearted name given the family friendly nature of the film, but initial runs of merchandise were already printed with the Revenge name. This pieces have always been a favorite of collectors, so the alternate card backings are a tip of the hat to these fans.
This complete set give collectors an opportunity to save themselves a lot of work chasing these down on store shelves, but it also comes with an added bonus. In addition to the twelve publicly-released figures, there will be two mini-figures available only in this boxed set: Jabba’s pet henchman Salacious Crumb, and the tiny buzzing Mouse Droid shown in Death Star scenes. To further solidify this set’s awesomeness, the large cardboard Death Star packaging looks beautiful.
The full contents of this set will include:
• Luke Skywalker
• Han Solo
• Darth Vader
• Princess Leia
• Boba Fett
• Admiral Ackbar
• Wicket the Ewok
• B-Wing Pilot
• Tie Fighter Pilot
• Rebel Commando
• Salacious Crumb
• Mouse Droid
