Mattel has unveiled the exclusive collectible they’re bringing to Star Wars Celebration Europe — and it will surely delight fans of the bounty hunter Boba Fett. Mattel will offer an exclusive version of the Boba Fett Character Car, this time clad in all-white — an homage to the character’s cult classic prototype armor look. Mattel showed off a close-up look at the car via Twitter.

The new all-white paint job is based on the initial 1978 video test for Boba Fett’s armor, then created for a “super trooper” and colored all white.
“I am a huge fan of Star Wars, so to get the opportunity to recreate classic characters as part of my job is a huge honour,” said senior Hot Wheels designer Bryan Benedict in the car’s announcement. “I am excited to be amongst the fans and to unveil our exclusive Boba Fett car that I designed as a rat rod, because to me Boba Fett is basically a walking rat rod – with his banged up helmet and cool attitude. But this is a rat rod with super-advanced technology, and, in the case of our Celebration exclusive, he’s been given a pristine white paint scheme to match the prototype armour.”
The Prototype Armor Boba Fett Hot Wheels car will only be available at Star Wars Celebration Europe at stand S502. Star Wars Celebration Europe takes place in London from July 15-17.
