Topic: BOBBA Fett?? How did it happen?

It never ceases to amaze me how many times I've seen Boba's first name spelled BOBBA.  It happens on eBay auctions all the time.

Is it just pure stupidity, or lack of interest in the hobby that causes it?  Every time I read it, it makes me think of 50s doo-wop.  "Bobba OO mow mow Bobba OO mow-mow".   big_smile

Um...
As a slightly misinformed person who misspelled his name until Google corrected me, I can only plead ignorance. But since Boba doesn't seem to get as much media attention as other characters, I seldom saw his name in print until I found this site. big_smile

I actually have a pic from Toy Fair 2002 somewhere, where it was posted that even the Unleashed packaging for him had the typo.  I was floored!  I'll have to see if I can locate that one and load it up for you guys.

In the meantime, here's an example:

I love it - BIG BOBBA!

I hate when people misspell names, like Obi-Wun(Or Won), Darth Mall, and Princess Laya, especially if they write Fanfics about the characters.

I understand if they're young or new to the Fandom, but would it hurt to look it up or ask another fan?

I mean no offense to anyone, it's just a slight peeve of mine. I'll shut up now before I get too off topic.

It helps to be able to spell the names correctly for crossword puzzles, if nothing else.
