I may be able to offer additional savings, ask how?!!
Please note this listing is for the unpainted face and body/different colored Dexter Jettster, not the painted face/body version, and notice the difference between the prototype painted version and the released version with no pipe in the last picture. (Use the arrow down button to see the prototype painted & released painted figure, those pics do not show up on extra large, they are only to show you the differences between them and this unpainted prototype listed here, they are not included).
As you can see from the colored image this figure was to come with a pipe accessory, but was changed to the mass produced no pipe version with a different head with no pipe. Early released packaged figures included the mention of the pipe accesssory on the side of the package. Some also had blue tape hiding the word pipe. One popular rumor is that the change was made due to Lucasfilm not wanting to promote smoking. I actually believe it was more likely due to the fact that the pipe could have broken off the head and become a choking hazard and it was just easier to cast the head without the pipe and having the character smiling. You also get several different unpainted accessories that Dexter came with including the Camino Saber Dart, chefs butcher knife, regular knife and electrodes! The two knives & the saber dart are also unpainted!

On with the description!
*****Here we have a prototype paint sample of Dexter Jettster from AOTC, also I've heard called a salesman sample but what's unique is the figure *and accessories* are not painted like the released figure and the accessories that came with it. The original unreleased version also had a pipe in his mouth (very small and hard to see in unpainted pic but it's there to the right side of his mouth and the same color as his skin). The pipe was later taken out so released versions have a different head without the pipe. For those that collect variation figures from AOTC, the change of the pipe is why the word pipe was later taken off the accessories list on the side of the package for this figure. Most packages that actually have the word pipe were covered in blue tape, but some made it out with the word pipe completely visible. I collect variations and actually have both. There are markings on the bottom of this prototypes feet that signifies it is a real lucasfilm star wars item. He also has accessories with him including a Kamino Dart that Obi Wan Kenobi showed him.
I had two of these, sold one recently so the pictures showing the extra apron shown was for the other one as the apron he had on had a small break in Dexters apron and I was able to obtain an extra apron from an employee. Yours will have an apron already on the figure as shown. This one is better than the figure is in better condition than the figure already sold. This one for sale has no isssues and is just like it came from the mold, SUPER!
These figures weren't one of a kind but very few were made, they probably had to run off a certain amount to show the big wigs for inspection and quality control. These figures normally can go for over 500.00 but I am offering it for less, and I am even including a special Star Wars tin box you can store it or anything you would like in, this came with the figure when I purchased it from China.*****
The feet also have the copyright hasbro/LFL marks & date and peg holes.
This is a nice figure for any Star Wars collection and one to surely send into AFA!!
If you want a lower priced rare figure, we also have a Padme Amidala figure with a triple threat! She has a background card, which not all did, her gun is tied to her hand, which very few are, and the rarest part is she has a mole on her left cheek, that in a later edition was removed for an unknown reason!
I also have other variant figures from this line as well, like a Jango Fett with a 3rd gun in the package with him, and a Kit Fisto with green teeth by accident, instead of painted white like they were supposed to. Both are ONE OF A KIND!!!!! Very RARE!!!!!
The Padme & Jango figures are available in other listings!
