There has been an incredible Star Wars Micro Machines website online for years, but owner Jad Bean has taken the site to the next level and given it its own domain now.

Vintage Rocket Firing Boba Fett. Never produced for the public, but still considered by many vintage collectors to be the holy grail of vintage figures. Yet, 99% of us die-hard vintage fans can't afford one or don't own one. If you've got a spot in your collection for one of these gems, you can at least fill it with a pretty darn good replica until one happens to fall into your lap. Check out this auction for some pretty sweet L-slot and J-slot replicas, and for only $25. Not too shabby. Now, if you absolutely must have the real deal, well then, click here for a J-slot and here for an L-slot. Clicker beware, sticker shock is inevitable! Don't say I didn't warn you...
