Sorry I'm new to the site, but how can upload fan art to the Gallery (the one attached)?

Hi Dai! Thanks for the question. For now, the upload/browse images function just works within the message boards. Do you want to try that first?

Despite some rumors, Boba Fett isn't supposed to be in The Force Awakens. We like to hope he'll still make a surprise appearance, and to celebrate that, we made some fake The Force Awakens posters ourselves as if Boba Fett makes an appearance. Now, it's your turn. We want to see your fan art!

You can design a poster, take a photo, or draw a picture. Art can be digital or traditional. You have until December 18, 2015 at 11:59pm PST to send it to us -- see the entry form below -- in order to win a prize!

Awards and Prizes

  • Most Creative
    This will be awarded to one artist for their best effort and concept (that may trump technical execution) with their fan art
    Prize: Star Wars Boba Fett Basketball Jersey by Mad Engine ($45 value)

  • Best in Show
    This will be awarded to one artist for superb craftsmanship and overall idea with their fan art
    Prize: Star Wars Mandalorian Bookends by Gentle Giant ($60 value)

Pointers and Examples

  • The Force Awakens takes place 30 years after Return of the Jedi

  • This timeline would make Boba Fett 66 years old

  • At least one Mandalorian symbol is clearly visible in the trailer for The Force Awakens

We made two just to get the ideas going here:

We made The Force Awakens poster templates from the Kylo Ren and Han Solo versions of the latest posters, isolating the logo and release date lines. These are optional to use for your fan art and only made available to help:


  • You (or your team) must be the author of your image submission

  • Your picture must be in JPG, PNG, or GIF format and under 10mb

  • Your file must be at least 612 x 612 in 72 dpi; in the ballpark of 2000x2000 is more than enough resolution; greater than 100 dpi is not necessary

  • You agree that the Boba Fett Fan Club can share the art with attribution indefinitely on / for any purpose deemed appropriate; that said, we agree to never sell or mass-produce anything you send us and there's no exclusivity with using your art in any other form (e.g. no The Force Awakens) for anything else you want

  • You must submit the work via the form below, which upon submitting will refresh at the bottom to show a your message was sent successfully message once all fields are valid; if you see any error messages, the related fields must be corrected and re-submitted in order to be an eligible entry

As part of an introduction to the gameplay maps in Star Wars Battlefront, which comes out November 17th, Electronic Arts released a clever microsite called Planets Experience that's loaded with all kinds of dynamic video content, including new footage of Boba Fett and Slave I.


Boba Fett appears in a mode called Hero Battles. All of what's happening here is non-canon. In this gameplay footage, he's on Tatooine.

Slave I is included with the planet Sullust, which has an Imperial Factory. The site describes as covered with smoke, ash and flowing lava Sullust is a hot and harsh environment.

Some fans quickly noticed Boba Fett's flamethrower is on the wrong gauntlet/arm, which they may have decided worked better for the game. Others noticed that Slave I's wings, which previously appeared in video to not move, are now definitely moving during flight.

Spot anything else? Add it in the comments.

Hello Amy! Thanks for the post!

That's the 2002 Compulsion Boba Fett statue, which we have some info on here: … ompulsion/

It originally retailed around $725. At this point, it's quite hard to find, so that would suggest the value could be higher.

Are you looking to sell one or to buy one?

The latest Boba Fett fan film, Boba and Chess, made its debut online earlier this week, starting with a thread posted by the filmmaker on Reddit. But the timing couldn't be better: Boba Fett is trending on Facebook (thanks to a bogus rumor) and The Force Awakens is just a couple months away. Take a look at the craftsmanship for this 40-second short film:

Who are you and where do you call home? What made you want to do this project? And what did you enjoy the most during the process?

My name is Miran Dilberovic and I'm from a lovely city on Mediterranean coast, Dubrovnik. Last year I got my Master's degree in animation and I'm currently working as a freelance animator. When opportunity comes I work as a floor runner on a shows and commercials like Game of Thrones, Dig and just recently Game of war.

As we all know, the new Star Wars movie is almost here. With my 3D career being inspired by these movies, I just felt I had to make something. Didn't need to be anything big; I just need to get it out of my system.

I had 5 days to do something. Last Monday I was doodling in my sketchbook and, while listening to Lessons by SOHN, an idea just came and I drew the storyboard as a quick sketch. (This song helped me a lot, so maybe it will help someone else.)

One of my favorite parts of the process was getting to the rough animation and animating the camera. I had all the action -- now I can take my camera and direct. I just love 3D for that. My virtual camera has everything I need and my actors and stunts do whatever I need them to do ... without whining. It's very rewarding. 

We noticed you're referencing the Millennium Falcon in The Force Awakens. How did you come up with the plan to connect a story with that moment or visa versa?

We know that Falcon chase is gonna be big set piece in Episode VII. The idea that Boba is somehow just relaxing on the dunes of the Jakku and the Falcon and TIE Fighter fly over him -- disturb his quiet time -- was interesting for short story form. And it's very personal for him, seeing that ship after all this time. 

Why did you have Boba Fett playing chess with a droid? It's quite funny! What are your thoughts on the backstory in this world you created? Were there other deliberate choices made, like why he's sitting there in the desert waiting (especially with 30 years having had passed in the official storyline since Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens)?

I have two friends that get together almost daily and play chess. They watch a chess program on TV -- I didn't know that existed! They brag about which move is better, more daring, who's more clever... like two old men. That stuck with me and I thought that Boba playing chess with an astromech droid -- the unbeatable, logical droid in the desert -- could be funny and visually interesting.

How is Boba there, after all these years? Well that's easy. Kaminoans said that he was unaltered clone of Fett, right? Well, my thinking is that he was the only altered clone of them all. His embryo was altered to slow his aging process, all other embryos where created with fast aging, therefore normal. So when Boba hit the puberty, sh*t hit the fan and his aging process slowed way down. So that my theory why he's still alive and kicking after all these years. And surviving the Sarlacc... nothing special, he just lost his small cape and broke some ribs.
Your animation is outstanding. It looks like a big change from your other animation work. What was your process for making this? Which apps did you use? Did you build or skin the 3D Boba Fett model -- or work off of any existing 3D models?

Thank you, but all I can see now is the mistakes I've done. After finishing storyboarding, I went looking for the models on, the site that has been my amazing mesh library for the last decade -- an amazing site! I took the droid from Staffan Norling, re-textured it a bit, the Falcon from Iven Connery and the TIE Fighter from Al Meerow. I found on the Jango mesh but without a rig. I re-modeled and re-textured him, added bits and pieces and rigging him with basic bones.

Setting everything up took me one day, animating took three days, and compositing/sound effects took one day. I've enjoyed it so much so the work would be 16-17 hours per day. I've used Maya and Vray for rendering and After Effects for compositing. The comp file was so messy -- full of layers -- that I was scared of opening it. Since I've exported the Maya camera into the After Effects, I could insert anything and play with it as long as I had time, so there were at least 30 layers in the end.

Instead of making this about a Boba Fett spin-off film, you tied it nicely into Episode VII, which is now just a few months away. You've also done a Croatian version, too, which is a nice touch. Where else do you hope this project will go or take you?

The Force Awakens is now two months away and I can feel the same excitement that I felt 10 years ago. We have great Star Wars community here in Croatia, especially the forums, where I've spent a lot of the time waiting for the Revenge of the Sith. It's still active and they are prepping for the premiere, which is on December 17 -- a day before the US! So while making it I've contacted the guys that run the site and asked them if they would use it for promoting the premiere. They like the idea and yeah, that's it.

I just hope that people like it, that they have something small to see while waiting for the new trailer and release of the Episode VII. I've brushed my skills with this project, and I'm already looking for the new one, with our favorite bounty hunter.

Thank you for taking interest in my small project. I love and admire what you do with the community, and I hope we all have great time on December 18th! (Or the 17th for me!)

Thanks to some serious sleuthing by TheeUberMedic, who shared his findings on Reddit and whom we spoke with individually, the beta release of Battlefront is billed with some unencrypted clues in some of the 11gb game's text files.

First and foremost, Boba Fett is not available in the beta release. The version that gets unlocked on October 8 is expected to just allow you to play as Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader. Nevertheless, many of the files in the download cite the bounty hunter.

Second, none of the following sound or art files mentioned appear to be unencrypted and/or available on the download. As a fair use ethic here at the Boba Fett Fan Club, we're not going to crack open any files. Everything here is read by just opening .SB files in a text editor from a freely available download.

In a file called Arctic, there's a reference to Boba Fett getting his own intro and outro music!


In a file called Characters, we'll hear a sound just as Boba Fett enters battle. That's a nice touch!


In a file called Globals, there will be some art relating to a Slave I power up.


This file also mentions a bunch of modes, two of which haven't yet been revealed by Electronic Arts in their massive media rollout for this game: Cargo, Domination, Fighter Squadron, Supremacy, Dropzone, Walker Assault, and Team Blast. There's also a lot of references to something called Hero Battle.

In a file called Volcanic, there's the same intro/outro music files mentioned, plus a shorter intro:


There's also a ton of sound effects having to do with spawning, attacking, and also killing characters like Luke and Han Solo! Perhaps Fett says something specific to each other character -- and perhaps in this Hero Battle mode.


That's the latest. As the game is officially open (and free!) to play tomorrow, here's to hoping we find something more.

Update 10/8: The text references correspond to actual audio files. Here's our video compilation plus the transcript of what's been found:

UPDATED 11/20: All items are now available. Some of the designs changed slightly from the catalog. Here are the final products:###

Nixon, the French watch company, revealed the first wave of their Dark Side line on September 18th, but we've also seen their entire catalog, which reveals the planned Boba Fett watch -- and some other goodies.

There's no formal release date yet, but one official tweet says November of this year.

The last section of their 42 page catalog starts with a great shot of Boba Fett (in his Pre-Production #2 costume). We're then given an introduction:

The mysterious Boba Fett is the most notorious bounty hunter in the galaxy. Well paid and highly sought after, this infamous mercenary scours the galaxy for profit and personal reward while leaving an indelible mark on all whom he encounters. Frequently employed by the crime lord Jabba the Hutt, Boba Fett is also commissioned by the Sith Lord Darth Vader. Fett is one of six bounty hunters hired to track down the smuggler- turned Rebel Han Solo. It is Fett's shrewd calculations and stealth that allow him to best his criminal colleagues. He leads Vader to Cloud City, where the Rebel heroes had sought refuge from the Empire's impending forces. On the floating city, Han Solo is frozen in carbonite and placed aboard the bounty hunter's personal starship Slave I. After collecting his reward from the Empire, Boba Fett returns to Jabba the Hutt to collect yet another bounty on his prized cargo. However, Boba Fett and his ruthless Hutt employer underestimate the strength and determination of Han's friends, whose rescue efforts erupt into an explosive battle that destroys Jabba the Hutt and his vile court.

Without further ado, here are the products:

Welcome, Lucha! Thanks for the introductory post! Sorry to hear your mobile view was confusing; we'll take a look and get to work improving that ASAP. As for the Mandalorian emblem, not sure there's a literal reference to the number 7, as so much as the stroke flows that direction. We'll also look into that more and see about updating our guide at if need be. smile

Star Wars: The New Republic Anthology is a new Boba Fett fan film, which clocks in at just over one minute. It's set 30 years after Boba Fett fell into the Sarlacc, which is a long while but conceivable for this armor-clad bounty hunter to rough it. With the Expanded Universe / Legends all wiped clean, it's up-in-the-air right now if Boba Fett is officially alive or dead.

Fan films about Boba Fett are nothing new -- we've logged over 75 -- but this one stands out. It has great production value, timing, and subject matter. Those are some of the reasons  why this film has been abuzz online as soon as it was released yesterday morning.

We caught up with Eric Demeusy for an interview:

Tell us a little bit about yourself. What drew you to do this specific project? What were some of your favorite and/or important parts of the whole process?

I've loved Star Wars since I was in middle-school. The first scene I remember seeing was Luke and Leia swinging across the Death Star chasm in A New Hope. I remember thinking so this is Star Wars?. It just had a certain feeling to it that no other movie had and something about that is what I fell in love with. I became a huge fan from then on. George Lucas quickly became my favorite director and I tried to take after him in anyway I could. When I was a Junior in High School I made a twenty minute Star Wars fan film, learning how to do the lightsaber effect frame-by-frame in photoshop. The next year I did another one for my senior project and landed an internship at the local ABC news station. Star Wars is something I always admire as both a filmmaker and a fan. Something that sets Star Wars apart for me from other sci-fi worlds is the design. I'm not typically a big fan of science fiction but Star Wars doesn't feel like a sci-fi, it feels like an action adventure film set in space. To me a lot of that is the design, the ships, the creatures,and the characters. I always loved the look of the Storm Troopers and Boba Fett. In my short film '3113' I think it's apparent that Boba Fett was a big influence on the android design. I just think he's the coolest masked, suit-wearing character ever. Star Wars also became for me the only movie that has Boba Fett.

When the news came out that Lucasfilm and Disney were going to be doing Anthology films I was hoping they would do one about Boba Fett. I read confirmation that one of the Anthology films was in fact a Boba Fett film, but that it was a origin film. I realized quickly that a lot of fans and people I talked to didn't want a prequel. They had enough of that in the Saga prequels. One of the reasons Boba is such an interesting character is because of the mystery that surrounds him. They wanted to see Boba Fett as he was in the original trilogy, in his prime. Kicking butt, firing his gun, and using his jet pack! Something you didn't get to see much of, but wanted to. Not how he got there. I didn't want to see a Boba Fett biopic.

When we sat down to think of what would be the best version of a Boba Fett movie, we realized it was the story that needed to be told... Boba Fett survives the Sarlacc pit. He should be featured in a movie that isn't just a Boba Fett movie, but was set against something much bigger in the Star Wars universe, the rise of the New Republic. An event that Boba had a big role in, one in which he is the main character. Within that we would see Boba's story continue, we would see him in action, Boba doing what he does best, and we would see an interesting change in his character. One of Boba's biggest flaws is his lack of integrity, and in this story he starts to realize that. So I decided to go out and make this teaser in hopes that one day people would see and hear this story of Boba Fett's most vital mission, a pivotal point in his life and the galaxy.

We noticed it's the deluxe store-bought Rubies costume (don't worry -- we love every kind of Boba Fett costume!), yet re-painted to look amazing. How did you come up with the plan to re-invigorate it and add some touch-ups, like the boots with their spikes?

Well I knew that if I was going to do this the costume needed to be as close to the screen used version of Return of the Jedi as possible, on a budget of course, otherwise no one would believe it's actually Boba Fett. I started searching around and originally I was going to try and get someone who had already made a suit to play Boba. Logistically though for our shoot and the location of these people it wasn't possible. So I was looking for other options and found that there were people who made really great versions of the suit but they were pretty costly and time consuming to make. The best option I had and really the only way I could afford time and budget wise was to use the deluxe suit and modify it.

We went out to the location and did some screen tests of the suit to see what would and wouldn't hold up on camera. Pretty much the whole thing needed work. I found a lot of really good reference for every bit of detail the suit had in the screen used version and stuck as close as possible to that with some leverage on the wear and tear. I had never airbrushed before in my life so there was a learning curve as I did it. I tried to get Daz from Bobamaker on board but he was booked up to February. If the Boba movie does move forward, he should without a doubt be the guy making the suit.

The shoes, we went with custom made boots from CA Boots to make sure they were screen accurate. We took those and weathered the heck out of them. Scrubbed them with a pumice stone and airbrushed some stain, dirt and grime into them. The toe spikes were made by Jason Mitcheltree, who was the DP and actually wore the Boba suit. We used real metal from the strip and some wooden dowels for the spikes, painted them silver and weathered them.

No Jabba's Sail Barge wreckage and no Sarlacc goo, noted some eagle-eyed fans, which is all plausible -- this is science fiction after all -- but what are your thoughts on the backstory in this world you created? Were there other deliberate choices made?

Yeah these are all things I had to think very carefully about. I watched all six films at least three times EACH within a month plus all the behind the scenes over and over. I was studying like crazy the whole time. I would imagine that Jabba's Barge would have been scrapped by Jawa's or some other scavengers. The Sarlacc pit was a pretty well known place and I think word of mouth would have gotten out about what happened to Jabba, so scavengers would have had a field day. Any of the smaller bits of remains would have been covered. Actually a fun fact about the imperial dunes where we shot is that the dunes move about a foot each year. Tracks from the day before get covered by the wind. I would imagine it to be very similar if not more so in the Dune Sea on Tatooine.

As far as the goo, this was also discussed before we shoot. I imagined Boba would have been walking through the desert for at least a day, maybe two to get back to where Jabba's palace was, and it is nothing but sun out there. The goo would have dried up by then. If we had shown him crawling out of the pit it would make since to have some saliva on him.

Your visual effects are top-rate. As you noted on Vimeo, it's all Cinema 4D. In the making of at, it looks like you re-skinned a 3D model, if not making a new Slave I model. Specific to Fett and his ship, what did you start with and what did you change?

Thank you! Yeah I was going back and forth on whether or not I'd do the ship practically or CG. I really wanted to do it practically but the biggest model I could find was only about a foot in length and that wasn't big enough to get the right amount of detail in. So I went the CG route because I know it well. I found a halfway decent model on, the original model was done by A Wiro. The model was a good starting point. It had low res texture applied to it so it was already UV'd but needed to be retextured. I went through all of the textures and repainted them at 5K and built layers and layers that were stacked to give it a more realistic look with chipped paint, scratches, smudges, dents and all of that. That process took me quite some time to dial in the detail and make it feel like part of the scene. That shot took me about 5 days to render on my home computer. It was later composited by Evan Langley who did the compositing on the piece.

To this day, a story film about Boba Fett is still officially unconfirmed, but here you got the web talking about it again today. On the flip side, the original actor who played Boba Fett, Jeremy Bulloch, liked this film on Facebook, which is a great helmet nod among Boba Fett fans. Where else do you hope this project will go or take you?

Wow! That is so cool that the real Boba Fett saw this! That's really cool to think about. I'm really glad people are talking about Boba, I think a lot of fans really want the Anthology film but how it's done is thin ice. I have a Boba Fett movie burning to be told, I would love to tell that story and my hope is to see that version fully realized. When I thought about a Boba Fett movie I had to really think about what it would be. What would it be about? How do you have a main character who is so mysterious without taking that away? Do you ever see him with his helmet off? What does he do after the Sarlacc pit and is it significant to the Star Wars universe? It's a very tricky character if you just go at it from a surface level, or if you try to go too far into his past. I'm a big fan of Boba Fett and this is the movie I want to see. I have done a lot of reading as to what fans say about their wants as well and I think the story the Jason and I have come up with is perfect, I seriously love it. Hopefully we can influence the Anthology film in one way or another.

In collaboration with a network of other Star Wars fan sites -- Yakface, Jedi News, Jedi Temple Archives, Star Wars Action News, Idle Hands, Teekay-421, and -- here is your one-stop download for being ready for Force Friday on September 4th:

Download PDF

This PDF checklist came about since there isn't one. Despite all the buzz, there wasn't a clear cross-brand list to even know what's available this Friday. Instead of dealing with that secrecy, these Star Wars fan sites worked tirelessly to compile a document for you, the fan.

Note that the checklist is focused around action figures and related collectibles. It excludes books and apparel. For any of those involving Boba Fett, we'll add those separately below.

Force Friday begins at the minute Thursday night becomes Friday morning: midnight. As for Boba Fett merch, here are the highlights to start finding:

  • Hasbro

    • Hasbro has a Boba Fett figure in The Force Awakens packaging, although it's noted clearly on the back it's a classic figure from The Empire Strikes Back. This 3.75 figure comes with an Armor Up accessory in a desert fatigue and will retail for at or around $12.99.

    • Hasbro also has a new Star Wars Chess set in their The Force Awakens packaging. It was spotted on a shelf at Walmart in South Carolina by @RyansPitch on August 28.

    • Boba Fett Hero Mashers -- as a basic figure ($14.99) and a deluxe two-pack with Han Solo ($24.99) -- are also newly available

    • Hasbro's Black Series Titanium Slave I is also on the list, which retails for $4.99

    • Hasbro took over the MicroMachines line from Galoob and they're back: Clone Army Raid, which has The Force Awakens packaging but clearly notes Attack of the Clones for Jango Fett's Slave I in this 3-pack

    • Boba Fett Interactive Room Guard, perfect for keeping your stash safe -- from other intergalactic space thieves

  • LEGO has a Buildable Jango Fett (75107), which consists of 85 pieces

  • Walgreens will be stocking Funko's white Prototype Boba Fett POP Vinyl figure, which has already begun selling through a separate deal in Australia

  • Random House and LucasBooks are unveiling Star Wars: Aftermath this Friday (although it's already in some stores early); it may have a Boba Fett reference on page 300, which is significant since it's part of the new Star Wars canon and it takes place after Return of the Jedi

  • Topps has a Boba Fett dangler, which looks like a keychain, only available at Target

On a lighter (for the pocketbook) side, Target has a #ShareTheForce campaign, which has already started. Their website features Boba Fett -- although his helmet is backwards. You can upload your memory of Boba Fett to be tagged in their 3D database.

Walmart also ran an ad that shows Boba Fett on a collectible Star Wars Trading Discs which can be used for an exciting game. These are called Topps Star Wars Galactic Connexions, which are expected to be found in their toy aisle this Force Friday. Here's a picture on the right, thanks to @McHale262.

Forget the unboxing videos, here are some gameplay videos of Boba Fett in the new Disney Infinity 3.0 game that was just released.

We've also noted some lines we're hearing Boba Fett say in the game. It's all voiced by Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett in Attack of the Clones and who re-dubbed Boba Fett starting in the 2004 DVD release through to present.

How to unlock Boba Fett in the game

Outside of the main Toy Box Hub, you need to find the Boba Fett token in the game in order to play as Boba Fett in the Rise Against the Empire expansion of the game. When you climb up Jabba's Sail Barge, right alongside the Sarlacc Pit, the Boba Fett token is on one of the planks / beams / boards off of the ship.

Boba Fett combat gameplay

Fett rides in on a Bantha to take on the Sand People (Tusken Raiders), who may have stolen the part, according to the narrator helping you. (It ends up being energy binders.)

When Boba Fett finishes on the ground floor, he says, Now I truly am the best bounty hunter ... there's ever been. After climbing up the cliff, while shooting at Tuskens, he adds What a waste of my time. There wasn't even a price on your head. You cannot escape me. None can escape me now.

Boba Fett Toy Box gameplay

This video shows an overview of the Toy Box Hub, including some beginner gameplay as Boba Fett within that world. One line we hear Boba Fett say in this is, Another mission, another pay day.

With shops allowed to take pre-orders starting today, the new Tamashii Nations Movie Realization Boba Fett as Ronin is a new premium figure that ships this November.

This inspired take on Boba Fett comes with a movable helmet scope, a Japanese sword accessory, replacement left and right wrists, removable missile jetpack, and removable shin tools.

The figure retails for 9,504 Yen, or about $76 U.S. dollars. It's 6.6 (170mm) tall and made of PVC.

This was first announced at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, which we covered from the floor on April 21st.

Because these figures are especially hard to get, and not just available anywhere, here's our curated punch-list of where and for how much you can get the figure.

Most international shipping uses FedEx. Many of these vendors, but not all, process payments with PayPal, which generally handles currency conversion. We've normalized all prices to American Dollars, since most of our readership uses dollars.

If you find one (or more), let us know where in the comments to help out other Fett fans.

The latest teaser trailer for Star Wars Battlefront was released today, highlighting a new mode called Fighter Squadron. After seeing all kinds of playable ships, the trailer ends with the Millennium Falcon being chased by Slave I!

Look closely and you'll notice a problem: the ship's wings are in their landing position, not their flying position. Were the trailer animators rushing the work or misinformed? Or is this a bug already in actual gameplay, which they hopefully will fix?

Back in April during the Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, we saw it confirmed that Boba Fett was a playable character. This news about his ship, Slave I, is welcome news.

The game is slated for release this December. There's a Digital Deluxe Edition and a Standard Edition, but Boba Fett is available in both for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

One perk of pre-ordering is an early bird marketing push, which touts the Battle of Jakku. A planet that will be introduced in Episode VII: The Force Awakens, Jakku is the planet seen with Boba Fett in the previous trailer. Here's the verbiage on the EA microsite:

Players who pre-order Star Wars Battlefront can fight the battle one week early on December 1, 2015. All other players will get access to this free content on December 8th, 2015.

I bought it online from Germany just for the box variant and the newer looking armor which is kind of weird.

Is the bottom portion of the front of the box a sticker? That part of the packaging is certainly different.

It also looks like Boba Fett's left wrist is positioned differently. In one you can see his wrist gauntlet; the other you can't as easily see it.

With the eBay one, it's interesting to see "copyright 2013" on the back. These new boxes seem like they may be new, although Hasbro already finished out this "wave" of Fett. Perhaps it's international packaging? But usually that's multi-lingual...

Any other things you're noticing that are different?
