Topic: Please explain Boba Fett love to me...

Hello,

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.

Re: Please explain Boba Fett love to me...

Maybe all of us don't support this guy so hard?
I mean, I'm not a "hardcore" Boba Fett- Fan. sad

This is all I'm going to say, I'll stay neutral.

Now let's wait for the REAL fans to speak!

lol @ joining bobafett.com , but not supporting him.

pot ,meet the kettle

Re: Please explain Boba Fett love to me...

Well I am still looking for people to stick up for Boba Fett.  I assume that people come here because they see the movies and say "wow that guy is a bad ***!"

I cannot rationally see how people would have this view, hopefully you guys (well I assume there are only guys on this board) can support your man. 

Generally I think the Star Wars universe has pretty lame characters (really when examined individually none of them really cut the mustered either as effective good guys or bad guys), and as I see it Boba is pretty much the bottom of the heap with the likes of Jar Jar, Uncle Owen, Oola, and that poor bastard who cut his arm cut off by Uncle Ben in Mos Eisley....

Re: Please explain Boba Fett love to me...

people like Boba Fett for several reasons.
1. He came as close as anyone else to taking out main characters. only vader and palpatine came as close and/or closer (not that people want someone to take out a main character, but they do respect someone who almost did)
2. He has a cool suit(and a cool ship)
3. The mysteriousness. no one really knew much about him. they liked his suit and respected his skills, but they didn't know what was beneath mask. the knew nothing of his origin

Re: Please explain Boba Fett love to me...

1) LOL at Boba "coming" close to taking anything out.

2) I don't really like his suit (doesn't seem that special to me) and his ship is clearly racist...Slave 1....come on now.

3) As for mysteriousness, there are a million people in star wars that we don't know sh*t about and yet her we are on the Boba Fett fan club...Not the Salacious Crumb fan club...

When Vader comes up to you and tells you No Disintegrations you know you have a reputation.

Re: Please explain Boba Fett love to me...

1)  Yes he came close.  He would have killed Solo if but as BF says "He's no good to me dead."

2)  Fett is obviously black (or Brazillian) and therefore cannot be racist

3)  Orly?



P.S. You have just been sent to the cargo hold!

Re: Please explain Boba Fett love to me...

slave implies nothing racist. Just because people who are the photonegative of some people were enslaved dosnt mean they were the only one. Jewish people by the egyptians, Blacks in the collonial era, Native americans in the south before blacks. The list goes on. Boba was one of the first mysterious peoples. and by misterious, i mean interesting as well, I dont want to learn about Jawa # 3 on scene 5 in movie three.

Fett is actually Mandalorian.    And it is possible to be racist and black.

What's mellanin?  Is it like melanin?  And what's a perosn?  LOL, on your way Jr.  adults are talking here.  I can't believe I'm wasting my time pwning a racist on a Fett board.

Going after someone because of typos?  Not the most mature thing to do.
