An incredibly rare Star Wars action toy that never made it to sale for safety fears is now expected to sell for £100,000.<br />
<br />
The plastic figure was an early prototype of the cult bounty hunter character Boba Fett.<br />
<br />
It was made by makers Kenner in 1979 - a year before Boba Fett appeared for the first time in The Empire Strikes Back. <br />
<br />
The preliminary version of the 3.75ins figure came with a rocket-firing backpack that projected a small plastic missile through the air. <br />
<br />
But Kenner ultimately decided against mass-producing the toy amid fears children might swallow and choke on the piece of plastic.
