Topic: I'm confused by this fan club...

Is it just this site?

Do I get a snazzy membership card?

This is just a site, but it offers a forum, the main site, the archives, news, an RSS, and a chat room.

This probably belongs in General.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Membership benefits:

-argue with fellow members
-waste time
-prove how much of the Fett u got in yor soul
-agree on how Boba Fett looks like a bucket head

and dats not all if u mail me 20 bucks i'll send u a collectors "Boba Fett Lint". It's a piece of lint that is an actual replica of the piece of lint that u can see on Fett's helmet in ESB

Certainly a vibrant community filled with a lot of creative ideas.

But, PresidentJuggernaut, yes, this is a free, online community since 1996. Catch up on our history or just explore the site.

we share our wit and clownishness as often as possible.
and save for a few hic-ups its a very supportive community.

This is a great site. So well put together. I can't believe its fan made.

I know that this is off subject but I don't get your sig?:"Got your hands up almost like you're begging. Beggin' for a little piece of Boba."
Is it from a movie and you changed a word to boba insted of of something else?

PresidentJuggernaut, thanks! big_smile

We *may* do the t-shirt thing. I saw a great effort by The Dented Helmet at C4. Members contributed to the costs and it covered expenses. The Boba Fett Fan Club is a not-for-profit site.

Actually it's from the Robot Chicken Star Wars episode

Re: I'm confused by this fan club...

For more on the Robot Chicken special, including a transcript, see http://bobafett.com/news/tv/robot-chick … -episode/.

Cujo, hic-ups are natural. I'm just always amazed at how this site brings a lot of friendly, not-so-geeky people together.

yeah, i am a member of a few other sites and it is quite venomous at times...fett fans r a very descerning, clever bunch, i too am pleasently surprised by the opinions and colorful characters that come out of the "woodwork" here.

Re: I'm confused by this fan club...

ARC, if you have any ideas, send them my way. Just don't want to have "Boba Fett" on them, so we're off-the-hook with licensing.

Cujo, excellent. We like to steer clear of the mainstream here.

Re: I'm confused by this fan club...

Hey Aaron, how about a large version of your avatar on a black/charcoal shirt?

"This IS my signature."

Re: I'm confused by this fan club...

Fett's image or name could not be used on a fan-made shirt, as they are copy righted.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: I'm confused by this fan club...

i think the image is fair game...so long as the colors r not exactly a match. (ala-family guy-fett in peters beard)
they didnt have permission to put fett in the cartoon so the tweaked the colors.
the name yes cannot be used. but im uncertain if you could put bffc?

Re: I'm confused by this fan club...

BFFC and "As you wish" were used before.

Re: I'm confused by this fan club...

We also joke around with: "As we wish," "He's no good to us dead" and "What if he doesn't survive? He's worth a lot to us."

Cujo, maybe if it's an artistic interpretation. But not lifting the image.

Re: I'm confused by this fan club...

why dont we ask george lucas? fine bad idea... but i think the shirt would be cool

Re: I'm confused by this fan club...

So do I,but hats would be just as good,I mean I'd buy one!....ok four...(is addicted to hats)
And if BFFC and As you wish are taken then what else could be put on em?
And going to Lucas for rights to use Boba would cost alot.....

Re: I'm confused by this fan club...

There were hats.

Re: I'm confused by this fan club...

Yeah, the sig is from Robot Chicken.

Couldn't we just do a T-visor (without the entire helmet) with BFFC under it?

Or people could just print the club image on a transfer (you can get transfer paper at any office supply store) and make their own shirts, and Lucasfilm could not sue because no one would be making a profit.

I would be helluh proud of my BFFC t-shirt. It seems to me the subject of this thread has changed, however.
