PROVIDENCE, RI, AUGUST 26, 2017: Altered Reality Entertainment, in partnership with Schylling Toys, is excited to announce the 2017 exclusive action figure—a three-character collection of classic tin wind-up toys from the Star Wars galaxy.

The designs are based on the original concept art from the 70s. The three wind-up tin toys include ‘White' Boba Fett™, Darth Vader™, and a Stormtrooper™. Sold in a retro-design packaging, only 1500 of each character will be produced. A limited quantity of each character will be available for pre-order beginning today. Attendees who pre-order will be able to pick up their selected toy from the on-site RICC Show Store. Convention admission is required to pre-order. Additional quantities will be available for purchase in the Show Store during the weekend of Rhode Island Comic Con, while supplies last.

Jeremy Bulloch, who played the part of Boba Fett in the original Star Wars trilogy, commented about the exclusive toy, “The concept art was pure genius and these models are amazing—I want one!”

“We are thrilled to have Altered Reality Entertainment feature these exclusive Star Wars tin wind-ups at Rhode Island Comic Con,” said Paul Weingard, President of Schylling Inc. “It's a worthy addition to our popular line of Star Wars tin toys. These retro versions of the characters are sure to excite Star Wars fans of all ages.”
