Just to clear this up, this information is not correct. The Rocket Fett did make it to the production stage. They had molds, made production figures and even went so far as to have production deco on them (the j-slots are all painted). You are right in that it was never released to the public, but it made it as far as you can possibly go. It was ready to be shipped when they pulled it.2) the rocket-firing feature was pulled at the prototype stage, thus no saleman samples or production figures exist. Period.
This isn't correct either. There are many collectors out there with genunine Rocket Fetts. Yes, there are a lot of fakes, also, but there are real ones in collector's hands today. I think the number out there is running somehwere around 40 right now.If you have or know someone who claims to have a rocket-firing Fett then it is a fake.
Or just having some false memories. You're right though - no one ever got one in the mail or at a store.If you know someone who claims to have bought one from the store then they are a liar. Plain and simple.
