Topic: Introducing the Collecting Forum

"95 seconds in Empire, 34 seconds in Jedi, and blink-and-you'll-miss-him cameo in the original [special edition] film," noted the San Francisco Chronicle cover story that featured The Boba Fett Fan Club.

As many of you know, Boba Fett began as more than a character. He was a figure--an original figure--sought after as an elusive and controvertial mail-away "rocket firing" Boba Fett before Empire introduced him.

Then he's here and there, sold and re-sold all year-round. I'm facinated by that, as how he's over-exposed in this area. I think there's plenty of room to discuss this, especially as BobaFett.com's Bounty section improves with a mid-2006 scheduled re-launch.

How about a question, to start:

What is your favorite Boba Fett collectible? It can be something you own, or that you admire. Feel free to browse the listing.

Re: Introducing the Collecting Forum

Thanks Admin, My favorite Boba Fett collectible is the Die Cast 6" Boba Fett Figure that i keep on my desk to look at and goof around with at all times. Its one of my little tributes to him.

Re: Introducing the Collecting Forum

Yeah, I loooove that unleashed figure! But if I were to chose a toy, I would chose the new basic Hasbro Toys (specificly, Boba Fett)

Re: Introducing the Collecting Forum

I would kill for the original Boba kenner action figure.

Re: Introducing the Collecting Forum

I must say I'm more into the artwork. I've got an autographed print of Tony Bela's (also autography by Jeremy) and I love it!

I'd say thee Bobble head released by Starwars.com, by far the best!

Re: Introducing the Collecting Forum

I would have to say my favourite boba fett collectible would have to be my Boba Fett Marmit figure (which cost me a fair bit off Ebay). It is realy sweet, either that or my Kotobukiya Boba Fett smile

Re: Introducing the Collecting Forum

The only thing I've got is a Boba Fett statue. I used to be obsessed as a kid and he's still my favorite star wars character. The statue is on a stand which is about half an inch high and the figure is about six inches tall. Printed underneath the stand is "1998 Lucasfilm Hasbro Made in China". The weird thing is that the stand says "Darth Vader" instead of "Boba Fett". I was pretty young when I got it and I was kinda angry that the manufacturer messed up but then I realized I had a pretty unique statue on my hands. Has anybody ever heard of this defect before? Oh yeah I also have a really cool Boba T-shirt. I think it might be a unique piece too. It's a grey tye-dye shirt and it has Boba's head and shoulders painted on it. I'm pretty sure it's airbrushed and not any kind of official merchandise. The combination of the gnarly armour on a funky grey background makes the image so diffuse that most people have no idea what they're looking at. To most people it looks like a weird landscape or something completely abstract unless I tell them what it is or if they have some idea of who he is. Yet the image is correct in that he is accurately represented; nothing is out of proportion and the colors are all perfect.

Re: Introducing the Collecting Forum

I'd be really interest to see the shirt.  If you could get a picture up here that would be cool.

Is this what it looks like or is it more bright in background colors?

Re: Introducing the Collecting Forum

Man i need to dig out my shirts...I'm pretty sure I've got that one, my fav shirt though is my "Got Armor?" shirt.  Got it on eBay a while ago.  I think my fav item right now though is my new flash drive.  It's #727/5000.  I think it's hilarious that it's numbered.  so does that mean they made 5000 Fett flash drives?  Or 5000 4g Fett flash drives?

sorry the pic is blurry, I'll try and get a better one.
