“Star Wars” Action Figure Sells for a Record-Breaking $112,926

Here’s something that Mike and Frank from “American Pickers” only wish they could’ve uncovered.

A rare prototype of a “Star Wars” action figure sold for $112,926 at an auction last week: a 3.75 inch Boba Fett figure, which never made it to toy stores. 

Created for “The Empire Strikes Back” toy line, it was put on display at the 1979 New York Toy Fair, but never mass produced due to a small, firing plastic rocket that was deemed a “possible safety hazard” for children.

Hake’s Auctions of York, Pennsylvania claims the sale set a new “world auction record” for the purchase of a “Star Wars” toy.
