Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always).

“This is the kind of piece that transcends collecting,” says Zach Tann, a toy collector himself who is brokering the eBay sale for the current owner [a man in Dubai who wants to remain anonymous] told ABC News. “Every time it sells it breaks another record, because they just don’t come very often.”

Back in 2018, another Boba Fett prototype sold $112,926, breaking the existing record. Just a few months later, the record fell again when someone bought another one for $185,850.
