Topic: Truth or Rumours?

I've done quite a bit of research on boba fett and there are quites a few different oppinions on select stages of his life, but one that puzzles me....this website says that boba fett infact had alot of the nerves that feel pain removed from his body...
hardcore! a little to hardcore for starwars? i don't doubt this sites history page but i've never heard that anywhere else. It's proly true but man, that is heavy! any opinions? hmm

lie less, by telling the truth less, by talking less and thinking more....hey you can't say it doesn't work... for all of us. [url=http://www.myspace.com/crayonsofdarkness]www.myspace.com/crayonsofdarkness[/url]

Re: Truth or Rumours?

It's true......trust me.

Re: Truth or Rumours?

If the story in Tales of the Bounty Hunters is still canon, then yes, Boba had several nerves removed.

Re: Truth or Rumours?

Ya, I always get that part of the story confused with how Dengar is emotionless, so I can definately see how you can be confused with the storyline.

Re: Truth or Rumours?

I never heard that.

I have heard that Boba was genetically enhanced and has accelerated healing abilities, which is why he survived the Sarlacc when no one else could have. I also heard that his eyes are super sensetive, which is why he always wears his helmet. (That and the whole paranoid about showing his face in public thing.)

Re: Truth or Rumours?

Looking back I don't think they were removed just for pain if any were ever actually removed...Some were for sense of taste and smell. I might have to read the story again. Only place I can ever remember reading anything about it.

But this remains different from Boba's cloning. This if it did happen would have been during the Empire or slightly before.

Re: Truth or Rumours?

Actually I have no memory at all of him doing any altering, enhancing, or removing. But then I haven't read the BHW or TOTBH in about 5 or 6 years, so maybe I'm forgetting something.

Re: Truth or Rumours?

Boba did not survive the sarlacc because he has accelerated healing abilities he survive the sarlacc by once again outsmarting his oppenant.

there are no star systems slave 1 can't reach, and there's no planet I can't find. There's nowhere in the galaxy for you to run. Might as well give up now.    -Boba Fett

How did he outsmart the Sarlacc? You don't need to outsmart an animal.

Re: Truth or Rumours?

If he wanted to survive a digestive system (like the sarlacc's) he would need to have no nerves. The pain would kill you.

Re: Truth or Rumours?

he didnt outsmart it, he was just smart enough to get away from it. Plus he had cuncussion credades, which most people dont have.

Re: Truth or Rumours?

Boba Fett survives on pure will power, he's not enhanced he's just tough as nails. He does feel pain because in both the Tales of the Bounty Hunter,Bounty Hunters Wars,and Bloodlines he makes mention of ignoring it. I'm sure he probably has nerve damage from the Sarlacc however, among other problems.

Re: Truth or Rumours?

probably has an exremely high pain tolerance though i mean youd have to to survive in his field and from his experiences

Or at least burn out your nerve system.

Re: Truth or Rumours?

Is the Bounty Hunter Wars series considered canon? Because in the first one(The Mandalorian Armor) when Boba, Bossk, IG-88, and Zuckuss take the shell-hutt job, Boba mentions having some nerve/smell related thing removed(I'll have to check it again to see exactly what it was) so he isn't effected by the flowers that are having a weird effect on everyone else.

I think it is considered canon unless it contradicts the movies.

I like Bounty Hunter War Dengar. The whole emotionless thing is kinda cool in a way, but his character in that book was so much more interesting with emotions.
