Topic: When Did Your Fettish Start?

I became intrigued by the Helmetted One when I picked up a copy of The Mandalorian Armor when I couldn't find a copy of Shadows of the Empire. I thought it great to have an in depth few of the character that was Boba Fett. Then the Fettish grew from there.

How did it happen for you?

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

I think when it really started for me was in 2002 right after Episode II came out. I had not seen the movie yet, but I did see some of the toys. One of them was Jango Fett, and I said to myself, "Hey, he looks cool." I then started to grow in liking this character after I did see the movie, but I remembered Boba Fett, and said, "He looks tons cooler than Jango." So, I picked up The Mandalorian Armor. This was the first non-scholastic Star Wars book I ever read and I loved it so much. So I continued to like him more and more as I read through the trilogy, and then came where I am today.

Mine started when I planned to become (and still do) a bail bondsman/fugitive recovery agent/bounty hunter. After a few months, I found out about Fett, and I quickly became a fanatic. That was about two to three years ago.

Ooo, my best friend wants to be one of those...or a park ranger. He can't decide.

As fer me...I was never really much of a Fett fan.  I just stumbled across this site a few years ago, ghosted for a while, and joined.  I like everything about Star Wars except for:  George Lucas, bad/possesive authors, and George Lucas.  Fett just happens to be the coolest character in that entire universe, thats all.

I wanted to be one a few years ago. I'd even bought a book or two on the subject. And I was trying to get in better shape and be alert and stuff, just little training things. But a few years ago I changed my mind.

Anyway, about my Fett story: I think it actually started when the OT SEs came out on video. I was watching ROTJ for the first time (for some reason when I was a kid I never saw ROTJ, I don't think we owned it till the SEs) and I saw Boba fall in the sarlacc and for some reason I was sad. I thought, "I feel bad for him, I wonder who he was? What was his name? His story? It's a pity he died...." And at the time I think I only vaguely remembered he was also in ESB. I had never taken much notice of him before.
Fast forward to when I was 13: I had recently discovered EU and was buying a book or two at the store, and I saw The Mandalorian Armor, and on the cover was Boba and I thought, "Hey! It's that same guy!" So I bought it. I read it and decided to get the other two in the trilogy. It was during Slave Ship that I decided I was a fan. So I guess I became a fan in 2000.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

Empire.  It all started in Empire, when Vader said "no disintigrations" aimed at Fett, and he replied only grudgingly.  Then, that scene where Solo floats away from the fleet, and Fett follows.  Brilliant.  You knew in those two brief scenes he was a force all his own.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

my Fettish is a family thing. I grew up with pictures of him, watching the movies and listening to stories from my dad. So it was only natural I'd grow up with a Fettish.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

I grew up on Star Wars (my parents first saw it on a date way back in the day) but I didn't really notice Fett until Special Editions came out and I read the Young Jedi Knights books.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

I too grew up with SW.  My Fett fascination began when I received a Micro Macines that was Fett's head, which unfolded into Bespin city.  I had no idea who he was, so I looked it up.  And I was hooked.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

I began in 1996 before the re-release of Star Wars in the theaters.  My cousin sat me down and forced me to watch it and I thought his helmet looked like something out of an old mythology book (plus I liked bounty hunters).  Since then I've met both Boba's: Jeremy and Daniel.

Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?

For me, actually, it all began with KOTOR. I had met Canderous. I'd been in the Dxun camp. I fought in the battle circle and flown the war droid. The Mandalorians fascinated me... my boyfriend too, for that matter.

As it just so happened, he had a birthday coming up. I was on a very tight budget, but being the intellectual type that he is I figured he wouldn't mind getting a couple of books now and some more of his precious models when I could afford it. Lo and behold, I stumbled upon a book called 'The Mandalorian Armor' with a picture of Boba Fett on the front. This was at a time when I could hardly keep Boba and Jango straight. But I'd always figured that 'that Fett guy' was just some bounty hunter with spiffy armor. Wrong! This led to a tear of researching and movie-watching by both my boyfriend and myself. And I became fascinated by Boba Fett... almost to an unhealthy extent.

I came to admire Boba because of what he stood for. As a teenager in a fairly disfunctional family, there is no justice. Not only did he have the qualities of the Mandalorians that I had come to know and love, but he also stood for one cause above all others. He wanted something more than honor and glory on the battlefield. He served a greater good (as best as he knows how), and not so much himself. And now I have to say I'm thankful for this madness. It's only been about a year, but it's been a good year so far.

My brother's favorite guy was Han Solo and I decided I would like the guy that rivaled Solo.And it just grew.
