And there's a lot of people who hate Traviss and what she's done. She's just a fanfiction writer who somehow got published.

I think GL didn't like Boba very much but as time went on and other people started taking it into their own hands he started to realize he could make a lot of money off him. Notice we now have little Boba in the cartoons? All playing to a fandom he's only just begun to scrape in money from.

It's not silly to make an orderly way to think of things. Yes, we're very good at making stuff up. There's an answer to every "mistake" anyone could possibly come up with, if we were given the time to think about it. As my husband says "You guys are so good you can retcon reality."

I don't understand what you mean by bunk. Boba is not Jaster if that's what you mean, but I already gave you the in-galaxy and real-life explanations behind that.

I thought you'd been a fan long enough to know this one?

Anyway, what it is is that in real life here on Earth they made a backstory for Boba that was that he was Jaster Mareel, a Journeyman Protector from Concord Dawn who was exiled.

In-Galaxy the Jaster Mareel story is a rumor that was started because Boba and Jaster wear similar armor, and it's a rumor Boba likes having, among the many other rumors about him. Jaster really was a Journeyman Protector, really was exiled, but became the leader of the Mandalorians. When the Mandalorians split into two groups, Mandos and Death Watch, they were chasing each other around Concord Dawn and happened upon the Fett farm about the time Jango was 10. The farm burned and Jango's family died. Jaster felt bad and basically adopted Jango. So in a way Jaster is Boba's grandpa.

There's a way of thinking that we're researching the SW galaxy and all the books are written based on what the researchers know of the galaxy and in the last several years we came across a lot of new information. So the original stories that have Boba and Jaster as the same person were written based on the rumors that we now know to be false. If that makes sense?

Just because one good turn deserves another doesn't mean the turn gets made.

Star Wars: Blood Ties -- A Tale of Jango and Boba Fett #1 (of 4) Written by Tom Taylor; Art and cover by Chris Scalf On sale August 25; 40 pages

Here begins a multigenerational tale of honor and redemption, starring two of the heaviest hitters in the Star Wars galaxy -- the father-and-clone team of Jango and Boba Fett!

Shortly before the start of the Clone Wars, Count Dooku sends Jango Fett on a mission that will affect the course of Boba Fett's life some twenty years later. But for now, neither of them knows what the future holds in store, and besides, they have their schedule filled dodging monsters and fighting bad guys! It's Jango Fett and Boba Fett together in a series featuring fully painted art by Purge artist Chris Scalf!

Sounds good to me.

Yep, he's nearly exhausted all other means of grabbing money and has now decided to cash in on this. I wonder how long till he's desperate enough to release the Holiday Special on dvd? tongue

We can now get a Fett helmet cookie cutter! It comes in a 4-pk along with Vader, a stormtrooper, and Yoda. They're 19.95, which is a bit much for only four cutters.

Every second counts, every second is meaningful, and I'd rather not waste my precious moments. I don't have the laid back, "yes, let's waste my entire life so one day when I'm 70 I'll wake up and realize I'm too old to live my life because I wasted it and threw it away" sort of outlook.

Thanks! I actually made it for True Warrior, I believe, but I liked it so much I had to start using it after he was done.

lol! It also reminds me of this picture:

They added more shirts: http://www.starwars.com/vault/collectin … x.html#rss I think the milk one's kinda weird. First of all you don't brew milk, and second the trademark is 1980, which I guess is the year ESB came out which is what we're celebrating, but the rest of the shirt acts like it's an actual in-galaxy company which would mean that the 1980 goes against the "long time ago in a galaxy far far away" thing.

You beat me to it, I was going to post this. tongue Awesome shirts, too bad I can't go. I feel weird wearing shirts for conventions I didn't go to so I won't be getting these.

I've never seen that before, but it looks very cool!

Oh that would be awesome if they did Tag and Bink!

This has potential actually. IF they do it right. They're probably going to screw it up. But if they do it right it'll be great. Remember in the first SW Robot Chicken where the cleaning guy's like, "gotta get that transfer to cloud city", "gotta get that transfer to the death star", "what are those guys always doing up there". That was great. So, hopefully, this will be more of the same.

I'm tentatively leaning towards optimism on this one. The main reason being that it won't involve any characters we know and the new characters won't have a profound impact on the galaxy at large. The EverydayJoe doesn't, say, walk down a hallway and trip, falling on a wall which presses a button and opens a door that R2 was having trouble with and everyone in the movie thinks R2 did it and R2's like, "But I didn't... well, whatever, let's go." EverydayJoe goes to the office, then comes home to his kids and wife and has dinner.

Aarenlainey, this topic is already, like, five months old. That would be why. wink

Ale'ika: http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/boards/v … hp?id=3236 We even have a thread for it.

I finished Traitor and I loved it. smile But I don't have the next one, Destiny's Way, so I'm sorta lost right now. I'm reading a non-SW book currently.

Devil Girl: I liked the Force Unleashed book, it was pretty good.

*ahem* I TOLD YA SO! I said this would happen. Didn't I say it? I said it. I said a SW tv show would destroy the fandom as we know it. Was I right? Yes, I was. This is merely one example of the thousands out there in that exact same situation. Never saw the movies, don't even know about them. A tv series is the beginning of the end for us and I was right. Now doesn't everyone wish they'd listened to me?

He's either a kid (10-12 years) or a spammer. Either way I'm ignoring him for now, and until he starts doing it right I don't think anyone should really take him seriously. Or if he turns out to be a kid we should help him learn how to post right.

*sniffle* I can't believe they would destroy Boba like this, but I knew they would and now they have. I don't even have a long "I told you so" post, all I have is a tearful farewell to times past.

Hi, Bobagirl, welcome to the boards, but you got wrong avatar. We're talking about icons, not the movie.
