Topic: Where have you met other Fett Fans?

So, where have you met other Boba & Jango Fett fans... besides here @ the BFFC...

I met a fan a few weeks ago at work, it was very unexpected...
I'm a cashier at Ace Hardware. This costumer comes up who wants to by some hay. So, as I'm using a radio to call outside to see if we have any hay available, he says "Hey, I like your shirt... Boba Fett's on it." And of course, being the uber-geek that I am, smile insanely and exclaim "Oh my gosh! Really? Boba Fett's my favorite!! I've never had anyone recognize Boba Fett on my shirt before!! Look, it says fangirl on it! I got it for my birthday last year!"
Of course, he asks where I got it (starwars.com), and then I finish the transaction.. but still, it was so funny, I just love it when unexpected things like that happen! I think I might have scared him a bit... lol.

Anyway, has anyone here met a Fett fan in an odd place?

Re: Where have you met other Fett Fans?

At my school, there was at least 3 fans i knew of.Then, I came along and started spreading my influence. Now there's ten of us.

Re: Where have you met other Fett Fans?

Everyone I know in RL is either not a Fett fan or wouldn't even recognize who he is. I was wearing a Boba shirt once  and had some old lady ask me if it was an astronaut. 0_0

Actually I was the only person I knew who was a Fett fan before finding this website.

Everyone should check out this movie. Too bad only chapter 1's ready.

Miba, that is hilarious! But, granted, she was an old lady... tongue

umm, I emt one at school, but he was a little slow, he was like do you like starwars. And I was like yeah, and he said do you like Boba Fett? And I was like Umm, No I hate him, OF COURSE I LIKE him, and then he said cool so do i, the walked away, and I have not seen him sense, Wierd

Hm, how odd... there's this girl at my school, and I'm not saying this to be mean, but she does suffer from a severe mental illness/learning disability. Well, I was in the bathroom one day, washing my hands, and she comes out of one of the stalls and looks at my purse... which at the time had a giant pin with Boba Fett on it. She asked me if I liked Star Wars, so I said, "Yes, Boba's my favorite." And she told me she like him too, but liked Jango better. Well, I would say hi to her in the halls after that, but I haven't bumped into her lately. She probably doesn't remember ever speaking to me, to be honest.

There's another Star Wars fan in my grade... he's pretty hardcore like me, reads books and stuff. Wants to join the 501st. I talk to him quite a bit, but his perverted sense of humor gets on my nerves... but anyways, he thinks Boba's pretty cool. However, he was talking to me one day about quantum physics or something, and somehow through time travel you could make clones possible! And he said he'd make a clone army! I was like, "Noo, that's so unethical! Don't you feel terrible for the clones in Star Wars?" He doesn
t care!! So I don't like him for saying that... :'(

Sharra, I bet you were surprised then to see so many fans online then!

Re: Where have you met other Fett Fans?

I used to play the STCCG from Decipher so at tournements and conventions you would meet alot of Fett fans, but that was almost 8 years ago now and I have lost contact with most of them. sad

Re: Where have you met other Fett Fans?

There was an informal meet-up of BFFC fans, including myself, at the 2007 San Diego Comic Con.

Maybe there should be some more formal meet-ups?

Re: Where have you met other Fett Fans?

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm............ComicCon

I don't live that far; Yuma AZ.  Maybe I can make the next one.  Might come in full Battle Armor if it's done to  wink   Is that done there?  or is that not really the right forum for a SW costum?

Re: Where have you met other Fett Fans?

While I have yet to meet any die hard FETT fans out there, yet, there are plenty of MANDO/SPARTAN wannabes through out the military. 

I have a few buddies that are big, big fans of the CLONES and look forward to more CLONE related things.  They are not far from being FETT lovers soon as the dive deeper into it.

Re: Where have you met other Fett Fans?

I met hundreds of Fett fans at a Star Wars convention in Pittsburgh.

Re: Where have you met other Fett Fans?

Yes, we should start a Fett-con, or just a meeting thing at a convention, or just somewhere. The only thing is, some of us live in Europe, and in far away parts of the US.

I have several SW fan friends, but alas, I am the only mando/fett fan.

p.s. You live in Yuma, RD? I used to live in Tempe!

Re: Where have you met other Fett Fans?

lol, I think the only person who I know from other than here who is a slight fett fan would be my photo teacher.  Funny story, was just messing around in class one day and was drawing Boba and my photo teacher actually recognized who he was and we ended up spending the rest of the class talking about star wars, gotta love that class.  Other than that, one of my best friends is a huge star wars fan like me, although she's all for the jedi and I'm quite a bit more dark side wink tongue

Re: Where have you met other Fett Fans?

A couple of people in my group of friends...  It's sad that some people don't know him.  I was getting food at Subway once, wearing one of my Boba shirts, and the guy was like "What's your shirt say?"  I let him read it, then he goes, "What's that from?" 

I sort of stared at him and went, "Boba Fett?'  Blank stare.  "You know, from Star Wars?"  Continued blank stare.  "Oh come on, you know, Empire Strikes Back?  The most awesome bounty hunter in the galaxy?  The one who carted off a carbon frozen Han???" 

That's when I got a feigned, "Oh, yeah, right...  I remember now."

Re: Where have you met other Fett Fans?

I have a shirt with the mythosaur skull  on it. And i have had exactly two people recognize it. One was a kid at my after school program, and was all "OOH! That's something to do with Boba Fett!" This kid was just as big as a SW fan as I was, but just much younger. It blew the minds of the other teachers how i could get him to listen and manage to have and actual conversation with him. The second was a kid in my painting class this past spring, and noticed that it was Boba Fett as well. I told him about the site hoping he would join.... but.... oh well.

That much makes a lot of sense. Clones, Mando's, and Spartans are all warriors, so they'd naturally identify more with them than Jedi or Boba (as he's a bounty hunter, not a warrior or professional soldier). Though Mando's aren't too well known.

Re: Where have you met other Fett Fans?

First post in a while ... a lot of working has kept me off the site for a while.  I have one friend who likes Boba Fett but thats all I can think of at the moment.

Re: Where have you met other Fett Fans?

I may not have actually met other Fett fans in person but one thing I DID see the other day was a guy wearing a t-shirt that said "Nerf Herder". It was the name of a band inspired by the Star Wars series.

Re: Where have you met other Fett Fans?

I went with two friends of mine to visit a friend of there's that I hadn't been acquainted with yet. Well it turns out she is a fan of Star Wars and her favorite character is none other than Boba.
The three of us also played Star Wars Trilogy Trivial Pursuit...  which I managed to win, though it was a close game with the other Fett Fan. big_smile

Re: Where have you met other Fett Fans?

I just found one at school.  Was in my creative writing class and my eyes almost popped out of my head when I saw a Mando skull patch on the back of this dude's back pack.  He's only just discovering the Mando'ade, but I'm having a great time having someone I can finally talk to face to face about this stuff
