Now about the Mandalorians. I haven't read Mandalorian Armor. I have to see if I can find it and do some comparing of my own. I don't know if these would be considered Old Madalorians or not, but I really like Canderous/Mandalore and the Mandalorians on Dxun from KOTOR I and II.

Oh, and I like your Avatar.

That is a reasonable price, for a very good book. I do not have any of the Knights of the Old Republic games, but, from what I have read, they seem very... accurate.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

Excellent. Thanks for the site.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

This is a crazy story. Truthfully, i've thought Fett was "that cool guy in armor" for most of my life, and in June i went Fett crazy after i rented Bounty Hunter for PS2. So, in a technical sense, i've only been a Fandalorian for about 3 months. Sad, i know. Can't believe i didn't relize it sooner.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

Boba's always been my favorite.  I think his voice and armor did it.  I was livid when they changed his voice for the DVD.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

Yeah i was so annoyred about them changing the dvd voice but the old one will always be his real voice for me.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

I got my Fettish when my mom took me to see Empire Strikes back at the theater. (Yeah,guys that makes me kinda old) I noticed this guy that I remembered vaguely from the Holiday Special. I thought,cool I remember him, but what really stood out to me was he was the only guy that had enough gall to get into Vaders face and tell him like it is."He's no good to me dead!"  That absolutely bowled me over.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

Lol i can imagine Boba slapping Vader and saying pay me more or i will slap you again.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

Mandalorian Armor has been sitting on my shelf since it was first published. Never got around to reading it till a few ywars ago. then imagine my surprise when wikipedia says that there is a Boba Fett fansite? I thought I was the only one. Obviously I was wrong!!!!

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

My fettish started after I read The Mandalorian Armor, and after I bought a Boba figure.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

Mine started when they re-released star wars in 1996,  I got a boba fett 3 3/4 action figure and since then he has been my favorite.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

when i was about three, he looked so cool and i always loved the villans.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

Are you saying a love of villians is what made you like Boba? If so then you are incorrect because Boba isn't a villian, he's inbetween. smile

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

its a long story for me, but i'll make it short:

the year is 1996. i saw all 3 original trilogy movies. i had barely managed to notice fett in esb, and only noticed him when he fell into the sarlacc.

now its 1999. i dont remember fett at all, when suddenly, he's on the main cover of a lego magazine. inside is a small bio about him, and a comic book about the sarlacc pit. it all started coming back. i still didnt like him though.

its early 2002. episode 2 is about to come out. i saw the poster in the theater, and i saw jango fett for the first time. a few minutes after i saw it, i suddenly gasped out of nowhere, because i suddenly had a vision of a man in mandalorian armor rocketing off the sarlacc and next to luke. and when i realized suddenly where fett had come from, i was shocked beyond....hell. i STILL didnt like fett though.

its 2003. my friend has a book titled: boba fett- the fight to survive, with jango on the cover. it seemed interesting, so i asked if i could borrow it. reading bobas story of when jango died was....inspirational, at the time. after that, my fettish started.

but the storys not over. in 2004 i bought star wars bounty hunter and i learned all about jango fett. now, i didnt know who i liked better, boba or jango. and i STILL dont know.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

I have been a Boba Fett fan since 1980 when ESB came out. I also remember him when I was in grade from the "Star Wars Holiday Special". I even made a t-shirt with Boba Fett on it in industrial arts. My classmates teased me about it so I went into the closet until now.

When Star Wars II came out I had a relapse and was delighted to find out about this site which I have been visiting for the last three months.

Did you mean Empire Strikes Back or Attack of the Clones?

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

Me no born when ESB was made.

I meant Attack of the Clones.
I'm surprised i haven't caused my DVD to skip because i've replayed all the scenes with Jango and Boba so many times. lol

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

I guess everyone can see how old I am! I am considering getting that DVD myself.
I rented it last summer and am glad I did.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

Mine also began on episode II (Attack of the clones) but it began more when i first saw the mandalorians on Kotor II
i think they are a great race.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

I'm not a huge fan of Star Wars. I like it but I'm one of those people that think George Lucas ruined it with all the CG animations. Most of all by adding Jar Jar Whatever into the story.  I'm not really obsessed or anything but I do collect.  I'm still a kid at heart.   Boba Fett was my favorite character from the moment I first saw him in "Episode V".  I'm nearly 30 now but I remember seeing it on opening night when we lived in Germany.  My parents bought me plenty of Boba Fett toys back then. They have them stored at their house along with all my other old Star Wars toys.  I started collecting Boba Fett items again about 10 years ago when Star Wars first starting comming back on the scene. It was a good time to start because with the re-release of the orginal movie, and the start of Episodes I, II, III, there were, and still are, plenty of new toys and such to buy.  I buy just about anything I can find.  I even bought the little Boba Fett Burger King was selling last year. Since then I've added statues, jewerly, and more toys.  Last night I bought a bobble head on Ebay.  I've been planning on getting the skull from his armor for a tattoo.  I saw one in the special edition of "Dawn of the Dead".  The 2004 version.  If you watch the news reels that aren't in the actual movie there is a scene where they are in a morgue interviewing a doctors. The zombie on the table that grabs one of the doctors has the skull tattoo on his shoulder.  There are still a couple of statues I need to add to my collection and a painting or two.  Those are the more pricey items.  The Gentle Giants statues that I already have are my favorites.  I'm looking forward to getting the bobble head too.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

I'm glad to hear you're almost 30. For awhile there I thought there must be something wrong with me being 38 years old and A Boba Fett fan.
