Yeah, I don't even pay attention to the clones. I'm still trying to get a Boba Fett and Jango Fett cardboard lifesize standups for my collection. I have most of their figures in their original packaging. I would love to own the very first Boba Fett MOC but that goes for like $1500




Boba = my fav Star Wars character, beats out daddy

oh, big Boba, not the little brat in Ep 2 :D



I consider it! :D They might as well threw me in that pit too, cause that's how I feel when I see that offensive scene :rolleyes:




Thats how i felt too. What were they thinking when Boba Fett got "killed" off in ROTJ? Imo, many of the more interesting characters die premature deaths in SW-- (e.g. Darth Maul, Jango Fett,etc.) I personally consider Boba's escape from the Sarlacc to be within the parameters of SW canon. :)

Funny, really, how this "dreaded" (seemingly) bounty hunter who got enough face time to look stony silent and then get knocked by a blind man into the Sarlaac outgrew his definitively less than fantastic film role and grow into something of pure awesome.



Thats a good point. I guess it comes down to us fans sticking with a character that we really like. :)

It happens a lot in Star Wars. Wedge Antilles, Ackbar (who really has remarkably little screen time), a couple of the bounty hunters who later got their own books, and whatnot.

Hopefully, there will be a cool story or two about Boba and some of the other "minor" characters in the new SW tv series. I have a strong feeling that we will be treated to at least one Boba story. :)

It's the unknown that can thrill us sometimes. We knew very little about Boba, and we did not see his face in the original trilogy.

It's kinda like the Breen in DS9. There is little light shed on them, thus the curiosity can make the appeal stronger.
