    I definitely will. The one theme I'm super into is super heroes.

    @SumoLego - I don't think they will... there really is no way to authenticate it. Anyone can make one with a keychain and a white boba fett polybag.

    When it was released in 2011 as a promotional item, it was given out with an exclusive sticker sheet and was in a sealed plastic bag. Unfortunately, the sticker sheet can be bought on eBay for $50 sometimes.... and anyone can replicate the plastic bag!

    I don't understand. Is it that easy to make a fake keychain?
  • Pitfall69Pitfall69 0 miles to Legoboy's houseMember Posts: 11,410
    I have noticed that the keychains are made in China and are not the same as the minifigures in sets. For instance, my wife's Batgirl is not of the same quality as the one in the set.

    You can pull the hardware from any other keychain, glue the torso, head, helmet and pants together.

    Again, I believe this one is authentic.

    Actually - can someone take a picture of the inside of the feet. I'm curious if the 'Lego' marking is there.

    I'm not selling it, and frankly the satisfaction of possessing every SW keychain makes it priceless to me.

    Maybe he's waiting for a Bricklink order to arrive...

    It's another white whale!

    Anyway @Drmnez - if you could take a moment and look at the inside of the "feet' of the polybag White Boba Fett and post a photo, that would be very helpful.

    There's nothing inside the feet

    That's good to hear - I don't have fabricated white feet.

    ^^ I feel like White Boba just shot Jar-Jar in the distance, and is now turning to us for a fist bump of approval,'See that? ONE shot. Oh yeah, Boba roooolz...'. :)

    Got mine today! Love it! All I need now is the 2015 slave one version boba! My favourite star wars character and mini figure! No white range finder! I smell bull**** on that one

    Amazon.co.uk is also selling the book for 5 pounds (4.99 to be exact) at the moment.  http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0241195810?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00

    My favorite part of the drama with @B0SSK not posting pics of his elusive white rangefinder is this:

    ^^The least he could do is tweak a toothpick with needle-nose pliers, paint it white, and then take a fuzzy picture! It might buy some time.

    Well, I'm off to see if my book came with a white range finder...

    Just checked...I feel so short-changed. Mine only came with a gray range finder! Should I return it? :wink: 

    On a more serious note, I do like the smaller book format. Anything to conserve space...

    I found one with a chrome Hoth rangefinder.  Beat that.

    The elusive white range finder is real:  
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/151096206832


     The seller made a typo in saying "custom."

    In other news, it is confirmed that the white range finder element will make an appearance in the next modular.

    I heard they where putting 5 issues out with a white-gold Boba and rangefinder. So I guess the hunt for mister (white) gold is open, again.

    I got my copy in the mail the other day. One thing I read a few people saying in the reviews on Amazon was that their copy of the book ripped apart very easily. Having the book in hand I can see why. Because of the cardboard housing the minifigure, the pages of the book are not even attached to the binding of the book.
     My thought was that instead of using that cardboard they could just cut a hole through all of the pages and the figure could sit inside of that so the book could be glued properly.  Of course the layout of the graphics would have to change to accommodate this.

    ^They do this with all the books. Why is this one any different?
  • theLEGOmantheLEGOman UKMember Posts: 1,520
    It's about 5cm thick.
  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 13,148
    It makes me almost... want to buy the non-minifigure version of the book.

    So - does any one know where to get the Lego books without the minifigure inserts?

    Already broke the binding on the new SW book.
  • KaitchKaitch N. IrelandMember Posts: 384
    So did the white rangefinder ever turn up? Seen references to it all over the forum...

    Also, are there 2 white Bobas? One with a rounder head and red forehead mark, and one with a squarer head and no mark?

    It's a running gag. The rangefinder hasn't been made in white, although it would have made sense with this figure.

    There are two white Boba Fetts. The original one was a promo polybag. The new one is packaged with the book.

    And there is also an old-style white Boba Fett keychain.

    There was a former member that claimed to have had a white rangefinder.  We all knew he was in err, but he refused to admit it.  Thus, that reference re-occurs from time to time when someone makes an improbable claim.

    It's also at the top of this page - so there's a lazy amount of research required to refresh the saga of @B0SSK.

    It exists, I know as I have one. I also have an eye condition that means I have really bad colour perception. :-)

    We can only hope the new Clone Wars season will require the rangefinder to be molded in white.

    @Pitfall69 Can I just say that link took me down a very deep rabbit hole and wasted most of the extra hour I'd come in to the office for email catch up! Funny though!
