Thanks to rock-star reporter Adam Pawlus over at Entertainment Earth, we just found out that the latest wave of Star Wars Black Series action figures will include more Boba Fett.

It's not a re-paint (e.g. ROTJ vs. ESB) and not a variant (e.g. circle or no circle on the wrist). It's the same UPC and SKU, now packed with different figures in the case.

This is great news for fans who are still having trouble finding the figure. (See our updated post on which stores have healthy stocks of the figure, as reported by buyers.)

According to Pawlus, Hasbro has been doing this for years, but not with the Black Series. There will be a new date stamp on the figure, and batch variation is possible, but well, it always is. I wouldn't expect anything mortals without microscopes will notice, he tweets.

The wave includes Anakin Skywalker (Revenge of the Sith), Stormtrooper, Clone Trooper (Attack of the Clones), and -- finally -- the same Boba Fett (Empire Strikes Back) was Wave 2.

At Toy Fair this year, Wave 4 was supposed to include Chewbacca and Luke Skywalker instead of Boba Fett and Clone Trooper.

Pre-order the case right now. The release date is June 2014.

Entertainment Earth is also still selling cases of Wave 2, which includes Han Solo, Greedo, and Slave Leia in the case.

I love everything about Boba Fett. I really admire his calculating intelligence and how he handles different situations in the various expanded universe books I've read. Then everything else adds the mystery behind him and makes him one of the most interesting characters in the Star Wars universe.

Nice! Welcome to the site, BABoba, and thanks for adding to this forum thread!

Do you think the prequels added or took away the mystery you like about Boba Fett?

We've added an easier way to play hosted MP3s, and also linked up to several new tracks hosted on Soundcloud. Check it out!

Any favorite level or technique when playing the Boba Fett "pig" in Angry Birds?

"Episode 7" was announced to be about 30 years after the events of "Return of the Jedi." This makes Boba Fett approximately 66, whether or not you believe he's still in the Sarlacc. Do you think we'll see him? And do you think he's actually 66 for the time of Episode 7?

Now that "The Clone Wars" released its sixth and final season, we never got closure on the Bounty Hunter arc. What do you imagine or wish happened?

Srofezilla, good point!

How are you considering three times. Are you counting "Dark Empire," "Jawas of Doom," "Tales of the Bounty Hunters," "Tales from Jabba's Palace," and "The Mandalorian Armor?"

There's a good breakdown at … s-his-fate of four of those five.

Also, be sure to check out the Fettpedia record, now updated for the Sarlacc:

Hello all,

In the last few days, you may have seen browser warnings before or in lieu of visiting this site,

Moments ago, we've finished worked with Google Webmaster Tools to remove the problem and audit the security problem that led to malicious code being added to a 2009 post here on the boards. This included upgrading the message board application to the very latest version available.

The code was a BBCODE link to an image, which wasn't an image. The site hosting that file is also rightfully flagged as malicious. We're working to correct all of the problems, which also led to Facebook calling links to this site as malicious. No files hosted here on our servers were ever an issue, and this is a problem of association via user generated content only.

Thank you for your understanding and patience while we solved this issue and work towards an even tighter ship moving forward,


Sorry to hear your statue was robbed. You don't happen to have a non-generic image of the item? Or it's serial number?

Hi Lenny, thanks for the post!

We list where the Boba Fett actors visit here, usually 2-6 weeks in advance:

You could also e-mail Jeremy Bulloch directly, listed on the top right of his official website:

Daniel Logan is based in southern California, whereas Jeremy is based out of the UK. Although we touch base with his agent more frequently over e-mail, Logan is big on Twitter:

Good luck!

Hello! Thanks for dropping by and posting!

It sounds like the shirt that was released back in 1997, well before Disney bought Lucasfilm (just this year): … g/forhire/

Have you already tried browsing eBay?

Thanks for sharing! Glad to hear about it. It's funny seeing how they customized the back of the packaging, too, which isn't as commonly scanned/photographed.

Head's up on the one typo, "Bob Fett," in your description.

Thanks again!

Oh my god, I totally found that helmet in Washington...amd pardon me if I'm incorrect, but the voice sounded AUSTRALIAN rather than like from New Zealand.

Perhaps the toy companies just emulated the voice talent, rather than the actual audio from the newest iteration of film?

I prefer the stories on obscure characters that were in the background of the films. I'd rather they leave Boba out of it as I felt they ruined the mystery of his character with the prequels.

Excellent point. It would be nice if he's just a supporting character, as ESB and ROTJ created the mystery after all.
