Topic: Please explain Boba Fett love to me...
Admittedly I do not have love for Boba Fett. I pretty much think he is an over-rated. However, whenever I mention Boba's inadequacies, many fan boys are pushing me aside.
Now I get my Star Wars "Canon" from the official Star Wars Movies, the Official Novels, the Star Wars Muppet episode, and the Star Wars Holiday Special.
I do not accept the "Expanded Universe" as star wars Canon, basically, those are the only places where Boba looks at all competent in my opinion.
Lets take a loot a Boba's Canon performance:
Original appearance - The Star Wars Holiday Special, basically Boba doesn't do crap in this, although he is a "major" character. If you haven't seen it he basically befriends the "good" guys, hangs out with them for a bit, then calls Papa-Vader like a whiny child asking what do do (How about some disintegration you tool). Boba, who apparently knows nothing about basic encryption when making a g/d telephone call, is found out by non other then rolling trashcan R2-D2 when his "call" is intercepted. The segment ends with Boba flying away. We don't really learn much else about this "elite" bounty hunter accept that Chewy thinks he smells weird on and he has a rope gun, wtf people a "rope gun?!?!"...
Second Appearance - Boba "floats" out with the garbage. That's basically his only contribution in this movie. Again, when he tracks down Han he calls his Imperial wet-nurse, Vader, to take care of things. Boba then runs away with a frozen Han.
Third Appearance - Do I have to recount the total failure of this guy in this Movie? WTF was this guy even hanging around after he has recieved his money (total JV move). And how is this elite guy defeated? With an accidental touch in the back by a vibro-axe handle. You know if your going to own Mandelorian armor, how about you take care of it. I doubt the fooking suit comes stock with a jet-booster on/off switch on the back...
Attack of the Clones - Again nothing special in this performance. Just buried his "clone" father and stole all his sh*t....
I really fail to see why so many fan boys support this guy so hard?
Perhaps you guys can let me in on the secret. As far as I can tell he is a total failure all around.
