Dengar gave up hunting, IG-88 died with the death star 2, his only remaining shell (no sentience) became a bodyguard. As far as I know, 4-LOM and Bossk just faded into obscurity. It's a big galaxy.

Last I heard of Bossk was Han about punched his lights out after Bossk mocked him about Chewie getting killed; I think he retired *got that from a source book*

Wookieepedia and the Databank at Star Wars.com have info on both Plagueis and Palpatine. And Karson Fett, its Darth Plagueis the Wise, not Whites.

Home is where the armor is.

According to Tales of the Bounty Hunters

4LOM and Zuckuss sided with the rebelion, IG-88 planed a droid takeover, part of him became the deathstar but blew up before he could start the takeover and Boba killed the others, Bossok, not sure, and Dengar married a blue chick or something like that

Re: the greatest SW mystery of all...

I think there are two factors with Han not paying Jabba back. In the Han Solo trilogy, it  has Han, deperate for credits beacuse the raid on the y'landa til didn't go as he planned, with him making a lot. So he took a big  spice smuggling job for Jabba. The imperials were hot on his tale near the Maw, so he jetosoned the spice, with the intention of returning to pick it up. But when he returned it was gone. So Jabba held Han responsible for the loss of the spice, but was way more then Han had. Just when he's thinking of a way to try and make up the credits, Obi- Wan comes in and is looking for transport to Alderaan. So He gets waylaid by the Rebels, and he says something in ESB "I really have to go and pay off Jabba." which means to me that he finally had the credits, but not the oppertunity to pay him off.

SHORT ANSWER: He didn't have the money, and when he finally did have the money, he didn't have the time to get it there.

Butlater he orders to have all the peices found and taken to the wookies cell. ( There was  a concience in darth helment!)

Re: the greatest SW mystery of all...

How did Boba keep Jango's head from falling out of the helmet?
Answere...
He DIDN'T!!!!
If you watch carfully right after his head is sliced off. When it's just about to hit the ground, you can see the shadow of the helmet. Then you can see how his head flew out of the helmet off in the other direction while his helmet hit the ground in-screen and rolled away. "Best to watch in super slow-mo." smile

Re: the greatest SW mystery of all...

Other Fett questions I don't know the answeres to...

1. Why does Slave 1 change colors?
   Grey to Green to Blue to Green again to Yellow to Red???
2. How did Jango get big ol' Slave 1 through that asteriod tunnel when Obi-wan just barely got his little one-man fighter through.
3. Why did Boba have a skirt on when Vader said "we'd be honored if you would join us."? (it's not one of thows Mando things that come around the side and back, a kalma I think) anyway it's not one of those. Plus that's the only place he ever had it on!!! tongue

I've heard a few answers, but let's face it... he DID have the money. The Rebellion paid him what he asked after he returned Leia to Yavin. The rebels had alot of money, which they used to equip themselves with a formidable arsenal. And as for not having time, because he was caught up in the rebellion, they could have easily sent a courier to Jabba to handle his debt for him. Jabba had alot of respect and patience for Han and his capabilities as a smuggler, and offered him a decent interest rate as well as the time he needed to work it off. And Jabba wasn't exactly known for his patience.

It's like Han thought he could just blow Jabba off, now that he had clout with the Rebels. It wasn't until years later, at Ord Mandell, that jabba put the scare into him.

I agree.

You can see his urgency to get the debt payed off there at the end of Ep. IV, and suddenly again, like a couple years later, he's in a rush to pay it off again at the beginning of Ep. V.  Two years is more then enough time to have made a side trip or have arranged for a trusted member of Jabba's company *Boba anybody?* to have come and picked it up.  So it's probably a case of Han thinking he's too big now for Jabba to needle at, and then getting a nasty surprise when a bounty hunter almost vaps him.

There is one thing to consider however.  Jabba WAS known as being a decent business partner before the movies in the Han Solo Trilogy books.  In those novels, it was asserted that Hutts can have drastic emotional/attitude swings when they advance in a growth stage.  It was right after his Special Edition Ep.IV appearance that he was supposed to have had one of those growth spirts I believe, and it put a real edge on the negative side of his nature.  So Han may have had the expectation that he could have got away with taking his time, but that change in attitude may have given Jabba a much shorter fuse on his patience. 

However, it's been a while since I read the novels, and I think Han had a deathly fear then that Jabba was going to want his hide even then, so maybe I'm wrong..

Just food for thought on the subject, but in principal I think you're right ner vod
