Target is currently selling several fun Star Wars shirts with some Expanded Universe flavor. As previously noted, one of their shirts shows a Dark Empire-era Luke Skywalker. But there's a much deeper cut of EU being represented on Target t-shirts these days... but it's hiding in plain sight.
So what's the secret? What makes this so special? Well, it's NOT Boba Fett. It's actually Tobbi Dala.
Tobbi Dala was a Mandalorian who first appeared in the early 80's Star Wars Marvel comic run. You can find him in issues 68 and 69.
He's mentioned a few places elsewhere in the Expanded Universe and even appeared as a figure in 2008 as part of a Hasbro comic pack.
Here's the comic image in full context:
It might be a mistake, but we'll take it. Who would have ever thought we'd have (even by accident!) a Target shirt with characters from the early Marvel comic days!? Hat tip to Evan Gamble for the tip.
