He probably buys updated weapons.

not really a mechanical leg...fett definitely had more technology than anakin or luke because he had taun we clone the leg for him. also, he isnt completely heartless because in one of the comics, he was to kill someone who tips him off to a jedi, the guy though had  jedi father, and a young son. so fett went back n killed the scumbag that tried to set him off in another direction

Huh? In Tales of the Bounty Hunters, he has a mechanical leg. Taun We most likely died on the battle of Kamino, decades before Fett lost his leg, when he was around 60.

Re: What does Boba spend his Credits on?

Actually, Fett never had a mechanical leg.  In the Legacy of the Force books (I believe it's the "Bloodlines" book), it mentions problems that arose from being in the Sarlaac and the Sarlaac tendrils feeding on his leg first.  That what it describes in the Tales from Jabba's Palace, I believe.  The "you don't eat a barve like that all at once" thing.  When Fett ticks off the consciousness that's inside the Sarlaac and it has the Sarlaac start eating on his leg.  Anyway, the books mention that his leg had constantly been in pain because of it and that he finally had to have Taun We clone him another one on Kamino.  Later in the books, he tracks down Taun We in hopes to help find a cure for the clone degenerative disease he has, to no avail.  He ends up finding the cure elsewhere (not going to spoil it for you, in case you haven't read it).

Both are good possibilities.

Sorry for not typing the whole thing you just wrote to much. roll Anyway he did to have a mechanical leg it said so right in Tales of Bounty Hunters. After he caught this one guy who was like worth 5,000 creds, or something like that then he had enough mony to order a clone leg! Maybe one leg was mechanical and his other leg hadn't had been so bad until Bloodlines. Maybe 'cause I'm not meaning to diss' any of yall. smile

Late response, but I believe that Tales of the Bounty Hunters is no longer considered canon, with newer books by Karen Traviss.

Nope, Taun We is still alive, Mercilous--Boba tracks her down--she was working for Arkanian Micro in Bloodlines.

Re: What does Boba spend his Credits on?

He might spend a lot of money buying information. Tracking down some of the most wanted criminals in the galaxy would probably involve paying off informers. Fear and intimidation can have little effect on criminals who feel that they have nothing to lose, anyway... but almost everyone has a price.

Food, information, weapons, fuel for Slave I, fun *cough*, etc.

Re: What does Boba spend his Credits on?

Re: What does Boba spend his Credits on?

Most of the Legacy of the force books expose the Fett to be a man so ingraned in habits that he formed to keep himself alive it literally causes him pain to force himself away from those habits. He started out following in the footsteps of his father, and I think he is a classic example of "I did what I was supposed to do because I was supposed to do it".
I think he followed the example of his father in that he spent money on the bare necessities. The only time he doesnt skimp is when he is buying weapons, upgrades, and equipment. He started out just saving an increadible ammount of credits because he learned from his father that men who have wealth have freedom.
He did invest in a great many companies including Mandal Motors, Kuat Drive Yards, and also in several different long term investments. Most of this money he sat on because he didnt really have anything to do with it. As a Merc/Bounty Hunter he was never truly loyal to anyone but himself. As a result he had no greater cause to use his money for.
The newest books have painted him as being a bit more "Soft" and the reason is that no matter how awe inspiring of a person he is he IS still a HUMAN... Most humans experiance a myriad of emotions when they get to be as old as he is. He looks soft because he is looking back and wondering if he was right to hoarde all those credits, if he was right to never give up the hunt, if he was right live as he did for so many years.
He is basicly waking up to the fact that he was an amazing person but he wouldnt really leave his mark on the universe.
I like to think of him as still as hardcore as he ever was, but now he is getting old enough to look for someone to pass the torch to.
Just my take on it.

Re: What does Boba spend his Credits on?

Well in the EU he spends a lot of credits to have his leg looked at. Im sure that costs a pretty penny. Not to mention all the contacts he has through out the universe that he uses to get the jump on Bounties. Also the money he pays the port authorites to look the other way when he lands. Not to mention the money he uses to modify his weapons and slave one.
