Re: I have noticed

I think that's only because of the whole Clone Wars cartoon coming out.  Even though Jango won't be in it (duh) he's in the time period.

Re: I have noticed

Pssh.  If Lucas was smart he would realize Boba Fett could make him more money than Jango any day.

Re: I have noticed

Actually, as discussed in this thread: http://www.bobafett.com/boards/viewtopic.php?id=2867 There is quite a bit of new Fett/Mandalorian stuff coming out soon.

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

Lucas is awesome! If he wasn't smart, we wouldn't be at the Boba Fett fanclub, because there wouldn't be one.

Re: I have noticed

A good observation Bats, I hardly see anything on Boba Fett at Target. I hope he isn't trying to downplay him.

A franchise that makes a lot of money.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: I have noticed

I think George Lucas is smart. He does make mistakes though obviously.

Even though he did not think much of the character Boba Fett, he has kept him going. He knows how popular he has become (LOL he even brought him back from the Sarlacc)

I got a model Slave I recently from Toy's R' Us, and it said on it 'Boba Fett's Slave I'

Re: I have noticed

I think his giving KT a free hand with Boba and the Mando influence in the Clones is a sign he's finally realizing how much of a fan base he's been ignoring in the Fett/Mando following.

I've never said he wasn't smart...I'd think he's a friggin genius considering all he can be credited with coming up with and his vision.  I think he LOST a lot of it between the original and the new trilogies, but never the less he's still one of the all time movie making Greats and yes, he deserves all our thanks for giving us the passtime we love so much.

All that being said, I feel he Has at times shown a dissreguard for us *the Fett/Mando fans out there* and a general "I'll do whatever I flippin please with SW," which of course is perfectly within his right.  But those are things he's done with the films; he's STILL given authors and game creators the freedom to explore and expand on the Mando universe.

Whether or not he's trying to minimize Boba, I'm not sure; where I am I've never seen so many Boba toys and figures before, though I'll be watching to see if that lasts with the new flow of Clone Wars cartoon figures.

Re: I have noticed

All good replys ...but ..I think Mr Lukas.. not moving with the Times concering  his ideas etc,,pity he didn't think to get abroad
that Wtiter who did Buffy etc,,he is so far ahead withhis ideas,,.and I don't really think he likes the Fans going for Boba Fett

Re: I have noticed

True, Lucas does seem to like to have the Fett's suffer.
