"We do it for Boba." -- Mickie

Nice to hear from you again! It's been nice hosting a link to your site at https://www.bobafettfanclub.com/multimedia/audio/mp3/.

Just sent you an e-mail to follow up about the rest. wink

Would an original be really cool, yeah! But when you have replicas that are pretty much the same, even if I HAD that kind of money, I don't see a point in paying that much for something.

Fair point, but the key take-away here is original vs. replica.

Maybe think of it this way:

1. There are so few originals, so the real deal is just plain rare.
2. It wasn't ever sold in stores, so getting any in the first place took some luck right off the bat.
3. It's the item that kids never got because the rocket firing feature was removed for safety, so there's a history/nostalgia which can boost impulse purchases.

Fortunately we can have knock-off replicas on the cheap, but some people (a rare small crowd bidding on this) prefer the O.G.


Every few years, one of the ultra-rare rocket-firing Boba Fett prototypes comes up for sale, usually in an auction.


There's one right now with a bidding war starting at $19,800 with a few more weeks to go. There are also countless cheap replicas, nowhere near as valuable but kinda neat if you really just want that rocket to fire.

Thoughts on the collectible? Overpriced?

How about the much-cheaper replica? Neat to have in lieu of the ultra-rare?

There was a canceled boba fett movie, it was gonna come out but nah i guess.

That was just a rumor. More facts about it here: https://www.bobafettfanclub.com/news/fe … -off-film/


What did you all think of the official teaser for Solo: A Star Wars Story? The short one aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday, followed by the longer one on Good Morning America. Of course both had simultaneous online versions too.

The multimedia vault at https://www.bobafettfanclub.com/multimedia/galleries/ has now been upgraded to work better on all devices.

Any feedback on the layout?

Mahiyana, thanks for asking. PunBB (this one) is a spin-off of phpBB, so something we'll consider. Cheers!

HunterOfTheWeb064, got all the "Boba Fett" mini series comics. They're great, especially "Twin Engines." In general, that publisher is a lot bolder than Marvel/Disney, who has been doing some Fett cameos in comics here and there most recently (but still no mini series).

Aydin, plenty here. Maybe start a fresh topic with a good question or thought and more fans will jump in.

BFFC is more than just a forum. We've also been operational since the days before social networks, so we have "forums" on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram too. But we like having fans here on the site, so in addition to the forum, there's connectivity with your BFFC account to the "Bounty" collectibles database, where fans can log and share what they like, want, and have. There's also some more integration planned as well.

Glad you're here and thanks for being a member. smile

HunterOfTheWeb064, looks good! It's been out in Australia for over six months being beta tested with fans down there, and some who cracked open the Android version, so fingers crossed it's cool.

Great question!

Try using https://ezgif.com/optimize to scale and optimize a GIF. It's a free, easy site to use that does a ton of cool things like that.

If still problematic, try uploading it as a post reply, which doesn't have a limitation, and I'd be happy to do the steps for you to add it within the constraints for an avatar.

JeremySDMF, yeah, patches are really all fan made, so inherently hard to get. Good luck!

festuscleaver, very cool! Thanks for sharing. Are you involved with the project?

Jeremy, great question. So, Amazon patches are pretty much all fan-made efforts, often bootleg from other fan-made efforts in the first place, like a vector stencil.

Back in 2016, Hot Topic had an officially licensed patch. More info on that at BFFC's Bounty. Now nearly 2018 already, it may be only available second hand like on eBay.

Pretty much all officially licensed things and most cheap fan-made things are also screen inaccurate. For screen accurate work, which would cost more but be made by fine craftspeople who cosplay, see our costume guide for some recommended vendors to reach out to who might be able to help do something just right, akin to the movies.

Now that "The Last Jedi" has premiered, let this be the thread to discuss.

Spoilers are OK to post here.

If you've dropped by and haven't seen the film, stop. Go see the movie. Then come back to discuss.

Since our forum software (punBB) is no longer being maintained, we're looking at new platform options.

We're also troubleshooting an issue with e-mail through the boards, which may be resolved now due to some custom engineering to bypass the forum's older code and use a more modern solution that work with our e-mail provider, G Suite.

Any feature suggestions or web forum recommendations?

We've got a Holiday Guide and a list of official holiday ornaments, but what's a favorite to have out?

Personally, the 1998 Hallmark Fett with the incorrectly printed shoulder symbol is a favorite.

Who's looking forward to Sabine in Season 4 of Star Wars Rebels?

Is that too much of a crazy idea? First of all does anyone know of someone who was a legit cosplay of Boba Fett in L.A. ? I think that should be the most important question!

StarRun, BFFC is based in Los Angeles. We can help. Shoot over a direct message or e-mail aaron@bobafettfanclub.com.

Windows7Guy100, nice find! Thanks for sharing.

While he was more famous for his overall Star Wars costume design work, including winning an Oscar in 1978, John Mollo has been mentioned in the overall history of Boba Fett.

Specifically, he worked on the soft parts of the white "supertrooper" costume which led to Boba Fett. This is confirmed in "Star Wars Costumes" (2014) and was also brought up on Joe Johnston's social media page once. Do a quick Google search and you won't find any results on this -- besides BFFC. ;-)

"'Norman Reynolds called me in to do the actual costume of the bounty hunter between the two Star Wars films,' Mollo says. 'We met and he showed me the model of the helmet they were making, and I went about getting the suit made.' ... Mollo drew up the soft layers of the costume, including the jumpsuit and the vest the armor would attach to, and had them created at Bermans." -- Excerpt from "Star Wars Costumes" (2014) by Brandon Alinger

We've got six new openings to our Force Arena guild. If you're playing and want a fun team to chat/trade/learn with, search for "BFFC" and apply.

Do anyone have a working link? I would love to see it!

The original post is from 2012, so this would be a case of "link rot."

Checked for a copy on archive.org, but no luck.

But you're probably asking about older members ^^'

True, but you're part of the new guard, Mahiyana!

Revan, most of the BFFC users have shifted from the board here to other sections of the site like Bounty and then of course social media, like our Facebook and Instagram presence. But hear 'ya on the message board.
