Topic: shocking revelation...

hello again friends and curious insomniacs.
not so long ago...
on a continent not so different than yours...
i was admiring some of the fetts origins,
and my discerning eye caught an anomily-or was it?
http://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w7/cujo86/29.jpg
here we have a young boba on a certain holiday special that no one would like you to remember.
notice anything odd?
yep, he is short a finger...oversight?
let us move to evidence B.
http://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w7/cujo86/21.jpg
a few moments later, he is with a full set of fingers. oh its true, its damn true...
what is this madness?
conspiracy or shotty animation or something altogether more sinister! boba a shape shifter?

if this does not shock you...then these arent the "shocking revelations" you were looking for.(jedi hand waves)
tongue

oh ps. anybody else wondering how fett escaped from the frozen world of ota? gotta love the old school
comics

Re: shocking revelation...

Maybe his little finger was out of shot? tongue

Re: shocking revelation...

Or maybe it was stuck in his glove?

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: shocking revelation...

If you look closely you can see it. It's colored a dark gray so it blends into the background.

I'd say animation or production error.

Re: shocking revelation...

It looks more like an animation production error to me too. Which would make more sense as Boba did not even like shapeshifters.

Re: shocking revelation...

It could also be that picture #1 shows his left hand whereas in picture #2 it's his right..... So just the left hand is missing a finger.

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

Re: shocking revelation...

I agree with Miba, Boba is only short one finger of his left hand. Also while we are looking at stupid stuff like this. Anybody notice that his helmet's T-visor actually acts like an eyebrow? It changed from a shocked sort of convex shape... to a menacing sideways cresant. =P

Probably to try and convey emotion. Silly cartoon.

Re: shocking revelation...

Hahaha.  This made me laugh a great deal.  I like the finger stuck in the glove thing.  That was aaaaaaa good one.

Very good find.

Re: shocking revelation...

Thank you.

It is likely just a mistake.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: shocking revelation...

i agree that in no way is fett a shape-shifter. i was just clowning around.
definitely bad animation. if you look at other frames- in some he has four finger and some three.
for shame.
just an observation...

lucas arts ur on the list!

Re: shocking revelation...

Wow, we really are running out of things to talk about...

But I agree with Draco, if you loos closely, you -can- see the outline of his pinky, they just didn't color it in!

Thats not his pinky, it is like a pipe or something in the background. You can tell because it doesn't connect to the palm, and the fnger would be at a very very very very strange angle.

Re: shocking revelation...

if you have an oppertunity to look at the onther frames, youll see that he has only three fingers in some.
so its not isolated. im thinking multipule artists worked on it, and didnt really communicate, perhaps they
were told that fett might not be human.

but alas i agree that this is a "nothing" topic. but thats me, i live in the details.

Re: shocking revelation...

It could always be that the artist drew the outline, then when the guy went to color it in, he thought his pinky was a pipe, and didn't color it in.

Who knows.

Amazing though.

Re: shocking revelation...

...back with another interesting find!
i suppose interesting could be a relative word...but anyhow.

here is a link to a video about an mk character.(warning animated gore)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8TmjhZHnWk

if you choose to view, youll notice that one of the creaters of the character said he is modelled after
a certain bounty hunter.
im genuinely curious- i think he is reffering to fett but he could also be talking about the predator.
ur thoughts?

Re: shocking revelation...

I definately think its the predator, for 3 reasons...
1. The 3 braids
2. The metal masks are very very similar
3. Invisibility...

Re: shocking revelation...

I would have thougth it was based of Predator althogh they arn't bounty hunters. But he did fire a flame thrower from his wrist. They could have based it of both of them though.

I'm smiling because they havn't found the bodies yet. :)

Re: shocking revelation...

hello, sarlacc haters.
i have no shocking revelation, but merely an inquiry.(i just like to microwave my old topics)
who doesnt like reheated leftovers? M I right? tongue

i am wondering if you like the original sarlacc or the new one with a beak-and squeeling like a pig?
IMHO-the old one was much more of a cold hopeless end- you give it personality and it becomes cartoonish...
ur thoughts.

Re: shocking revelation...

Oh I hated the "edited" sarlacc. I think Lucas did that so there was no real way that Boba could crawl out of the sarlacc - bad man.

Re: shocking revelation...

the old sarlacc was alot more intimidating cause you didn't really know what it was. Fear is based on the unknown so when the made it look like a half buried bird that had a octopus for one of its parents they kind of killed the mystery.

" Hi!"

Re: shocking revelation...

The first time I saw Ep. VI *and was old enough to remember it* was when I saw the newer version of the sarlacc.  After starting on that, the old one seemed dead and boring; so I like the new one better

Re: shocking revelation...

has anyone ever thought if something took years to digest u (ala sarlacc). it would be
like sitting in in a glass of pepsi...or even less acidic. if u made it past the beak, you would be fine.
it would be like a hottub, albeit a  foul odored one.

Re: shocking revelation...

It is a production error. Unless these take place after the movies (proving he survived) then you can look in the movies, he has 10 fingers. So, this is a simple animating mistake.
