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!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjqqwZGNHPg

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?

Welcome to BFFC, Andy! Great to have you here.

Good looking out about the box variant. This could be a later release. Where did you get the figure?

As for the armor, what are you seeing that's different? For reference, here's a normal release of the figure:

You're seeing it here first: Funko's upcoming Boba Fett (Prototype), a Walgreens exclusive, which will be in stores this September!This comes to us from the inside and, since they're huge Fett fans, the Boba Fett Fan Club got the scoop!

The figure is part of a four figure exclusive Star Wars classic wave. We're told that Walgreens will be ordering a ton and the plan is to keep it on shelves for at least a year.

Funko has made many bobble-head figures and objects. This surely won't be the last.

This also isn't the first Walgreens Boba Fett exclusive. Last year, they came out with the Prototype Boba Fett within Hasbro's The Black Series. While there were some hassles with the online pre-order, the figure was a big hit in stores and kept getting re-stocked for a long while. This time around, there won't be any online pre-orders.

This also marks our 500th photo-of-the-day in as many days in a row. Woo-hoo!

The Twelve Parsec Stare is the latest Boba Fett fan film -- one of at least 73 fan films that fans have made, complete with costumes, sets, or other production value. This new short film was self-produced by Ruined Films, a Finnish production company. They wanted to make a short film that blended sci-fi and Western genres and shot this in a week. Here's the synopsis:

Boba Fett, the infamous intergalactic bounty hunter, has tracked his next prey into a dusty saloon in the outskirts of a remote space port. In the shadows of the busy space bar the hunter confronts his target's three sinister henchmen. Who will blink first?

Today, the Western Boba Fett film has its world premiere on YouTube:

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HURch6uH-KM[/youtube]

We spoke with Teemu Valve, who worked as a producer as well as in the prop and costuming departments of the film.

Tell us about the The Twelve Parsec Stare fan film and how it's unique among other Star Wars and specifically Boba Fett fan films. What drove you all to making a fan film around Fett?

The Twelve Parsec Stare is both a fan film and a technical showcase and something we've been planning for a long time. Our first ambition was to make a Western short film with the genre's usual lingering atmosphere and style of cinematography. Star Wars universe is something the director (and of course us all!) had wanted to recreate from his early childhood, which took the planning towards the genre combination. The idea was to tell an imaginative Star Wars story in a way the classic Western movies would have told it. The rumours about the oncoming Boba Fett spinoff film also initiated our spark into getting there first!

Boba Fett's costume looks unique to your film, rather than intentionally representing one of the film-accurate or prototype costumes. Did your team build the costume just for the movie or did someone already have something that was then modified? What kind of helmet was procured or built? Who did the paint and/or build, and how long did it take?

Our Boba costume is indeed a conversion of the Empire Strikes Back version, which was modified a bit for our needs. It's actually my personal costume, originally created for the trooping use in the service of the worldwide Star Wars costuming organization The 501st Legion. The fan-made costume was assembled and painted by myself, although the helmet seen in the movie footage was painted by my legion friend BH-11380. We had a total of three helmets in our wardrobe, just in case. The making of the costume was a 14 months journey.

The most visible modification to the costume is the poncho, which drew its inspiration from Clint Eastwood's attire as the Man with no name as well as from Jango Fett production pictures and the Mythos Boba Fett statue created by Sideshow Collectibles. As our film is a crossover between Star Wars and classic Spaghetti Western we felt that it would be an appropriate detail mod for the Fett costume. We also believe that Western influences were something they had in mind when creating Boba's character in the first place!

How does the costume hold up and move in the fight scenes? Jeremy Bulloch and other actors have always commented on how cumbersome it was; maybe you all agree or disagree. Or maybe you all changed it up to move more. Or did you make a stunt suit?

The costume is certainly quite heavy in the long-time use and the filming days took their toll on the actor. The armor limits the mobility of the person wearing it, so we had to plan the scenes and the choreography accordingly. Where we could (thanks to the camera angles or composition choice) we lightened the suit by removing the kneepads, shoes or the jetpack for a moment to make it a bit easier for the actor. There's always some wear and tear to the filming process as well and we needed to make some field repairs now and then. Luckily we didn't experience any major accidents and the costume held up through the action!

Since the project is a portfolio piece for Ruined Films, what's your favorite part overall about its production that took everything up a notch? Any details specific to producing and/or art departments, like the props or costumes?

This is an interesting question, for we work with a really compact crew. Because of this everyone in the team gets to see and participate actively in different production phases. For example our director is also the visual effects artist and the editor was busy working in the prop and set departments of the film too. I think each film we make is better than the last one as the gathered progress in practical filmmaking process and in team spirit can be put into the use in the following project. Making a movie without an actual budget also pushes the team into creativity and making out of the box solutions, which is actually pretty useful in the end!

This was the first time we had a chance to include a proper extra cast in the production and we feel it really made a difference in how the scene looks. If we'd have to name a favorite part in what made the film and most of its production value, it would have to be the great set, with the props we managed to put together and the magnificent extras who were kind enough to help us during the film's principal photography.

Announced earlier today on the official Topps Star Wars page on Facebook is an exclusive, oversized Boba Fett card. It's an SDCC 2015 exclusive.Their announcement revealed it's part of a set of larger cards:

Topps will have 10 sets of oversized cards featuring classic Star Wars characters on iconic Topps designs. Find us at Booth 2913-J.

It's unclear if this oversized card is part of the same 10 x 14 series that Topps recently marketed as wall art. Those prints retail for $99.(Helmet nod to The Collectors Cantina for the heads up about this announcement.)

This is the one that I have:

The plastic at the top left corner looks like someone stored something heavy atop it, as there is some slight crush to the frame, and the bottom right corner of the box is slightly bent out of place, also.

Thank you for your quick response!

Geti, glad to hear! It looks like the current pulse is a low demand for that particular figure. eBay has many of them right now in great condition -- unautographed -- and not fetching bids even around $10-15. That said, online auction at any given point in time isn't the best indicator of demand or value.

Perhaps holding on to the figure for a while longer and keeping it in as good of condition as possible could fetch more in the future. There seems to just be a lot of unloading of the toy right now given the increased demand from Disney's new push since taking over Lucasfilm and churning out new films, merchandise, and more.

If not, here's the list of all of them:
http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/bounty/toys/potf2/

Generally speaking, Jeremy Bulloch's autograph certainly increases the value. The condition of the box/card and plastic all factor in as well. There are places that "grade" the condition, but that happens more with very vintage (circa 1979 - 1985 Boba Fett collectibles) rather than the Renaissance in the 1990's of new collectibles.

Take a look at eBay for the price of the base collectible, average the numbers of ones with actual bids, and then mark it up a bit because of the autograph.

[UPDATED 6/24: The individual Boba Fett figure, without needing to buy a platform-specific game, will be available in January 2016, according to two tweets from John Vignocchi, VP of Production on Disney Infinity 3.0.]

Moments ago, the official Disney Infinity page on Facebook just confirmed Boba Fett's role and release in the new game, Disney Infinity 3.0, and its Rise Against The Empire play set. He'll be on Sony Playstation before being available on other gaming systems starting around the end of the year.[UPDATED 6/17: You can now pre-order the Saga Bundle on Amazon, which includes Boba Fett:

Here's the official announcement at E3 by Disney Infinity's VP of Production, Johnny Vignocchi. Jump to around the 3 minute mark for the full effect, complete with BOBA FETT on the giant screens at the event:

Here's an excerpt from the official press release, which also hosted many new screenshots of Boba Fett:

One of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy, Boba Fett will use his martial arts skills and blaster rifle to help the Galactic Empire hunt and track down prey. Instantly playable in the updated and enhanced Disney Infinity 3.0 Toy Box, Boba Fett is also unlockable in all of the Star Wars Play Sets.

He also appears in the official trailer, released today to coincide with E3 events this week:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBlg_7NyJoA

ComicBook.com has some clarity about the release:

[I]f you want to play with him before the Holidays, you can only do that on PlayStation platforms. The character will be part of the Sony-exclusive Special Edition, which will also include the Original Trilogy-era playset a month before it hits shelves for any other platform or the public. ... The Special Edition will hit the same day as the general release of the game, which also comes with the Twilight of the Republic Clone Wars-era play set this fall, and is available for pre-order now.

The figure was also at E3 for journalists:Here's the publicity photo / render for the figure:There's even more within a post-announcement interview with Johnny Vignocchi done on YouTube Live at E3. Jump to around 3 minutes in before they show the additional game footage:

http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/news/wp-content/uploads/dark-disciple_tn.jpg

Dark Disciple, a new novel coming July 7th by Christie Golden, has a Boba Fett cameo. He shows up beginning in the later part of Chapter 22.

The book is based on unproduced episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. As we saw first-hand at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, Young Boba Fett -- voiced by Daniel Logan -- already played a role in those un-released episodes. You can see some of the pre-viz work for those episodes on our YouTube channel, here with Cad Bane and here with Count Dooku.

Thanks to Brian at EUCantina.net, who received an advanced copy of the book from the publisher and tweeted some questions, we've learned a few broad things about the plot.

SPOILER ALERT

  • After Hondo has Slave I in The Clone Wars, Boba Fett has Slave I again in Dark Desciple.

  • This suggests a storyline gap where perhaps Cad Bane trains Boba Fett.

  • Because of the timeline for Star Wars Rebels, this reunion of Boba Fett with his ship could be a plot for a still-rumored (but much-desired) Boba Fett appearance in the upcoming season of the new cartoon.

Thoughts?

Quinn, cataloguing what's happening in the comics would be very helpful! It sounds like an effort that we'd like to publish on the larger bobafett.com site, beyond just the boards, too. ;-)

Great points about the variety of dialogue in past comics.

As for Daniel Keys Moran (aka J. D. Montgomery), couldn't agree with you more. Small tangent: we interviewed him back in 2007, which you may know about already:
http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/news/fet … er-mereel/
http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/news/fet … -mereel-2/

John Wagner (writer of the "Death, Lies, and Treachery" mini-series), Andy Mangels (writer of TEOD), and K. W. Jeter (writer of "The Bounty Hunter Wars" novels) definitely did a great job. Do you think the writers of the new comics are up there, too? Or are they doing what some of the other comic/novel writers doing, too?

Good points about rooting it back to the films. That's certainly the whole game plan since Disney took the helm and began the Lucasfilm Story Group.

Darth Kuruptios, before Boba Fett (voiced by Daniel Logan) began appearing in the show, I think the creators of the show created the character to be like Boba Fett: a bounty hunter, fashioned like a Western, dangerous, and mysterious. What do you think? And what did you find in the "Fight To Survive" books?

quinncrain64, great review and insight!

Not to shift your topic here, but any thoughts on the portrayal of Boba Fett in these comics versus how prior comics, such as the Boba Fett mini-series, Dark Empire, and/or Twin Engines of Destruction, initially from Dark Horse Comics and now re-published as "Legends" by Marvel?

Some of the feedback we're seeing is that Boba Fett is more violent in this new Marvel series AND more verbose. That seems to be polemic: enjoyed by some, disliked by others.
