Also at Toy Fair 2017 today, twiswcast (Twitter) shared some great photos of a new Boba Fett action figure on display.

We can see it's got the five points-of-articulation style and that it's going to be a two-pack with Bespin Han Solo.

The release date is this Fall.

Note the extra gauntlets and double flame throwers. Interesting...

Sir Steve's Guide has a good photo of the figure. On the side, you can see non-canon hoses running to the two non-canon flamethrowers.

Live from Toy Fair 2017 today, our friends at Jedi Temple Archives broke the news that a new Hasbro Black Series 3.75 wave will include Prototype Boba Fett and be a Walmart exclusive!

The last Black Series Prototype Boba Fett was in 2014, stood 6 tall, and was a Walgreens exclusive.

According to Yakface, this line is actually re-packs of previous 3.75 figures, which include already an older Prototype Boba Fett from 2011, which is already a re-paint of their 2004 Boba Fett (VOTC) with a belt/holster piece from a 2007 Fett.

Helmet nod to jeradchil on Twitter for the heads up and Kelton Slaton on Facebook for the re-pack points.

Drumblanket, welcome to BFFC!

Curious to learn a little more about this. At first glance, it looks a little like fan art or a parody project rather than canon.

Want to share more?

This fan spotlight is part of a series focusing on cosplayers who exemplify qualities in creativity, community-building, and craftsmanship.What is your name and who are you cosplaying as?

My name is Emma, but I go by RoboEmma on Tumblr and the greater internet! I’m costuming as Sabine Wren from Star Wars Rebels, and my custom Mandalorian character, Ivven Oyre.

What groups/clubs/sites are you a member? What is your handle for those sites?

I am a member of the Mandalorian Mercs; I go by Vhe Oyre on those forums. I’ve haunted that place for a good 6-7 years now, and served on the Application Team for a while! It’s been a very rewarding experience to watch the club grow. I was also just recently approved as an X-Wing Pilot in the Rebel Legion, so that’s very new to me!Why this character and costume? What's the story?

As for Sabine Wren, the choice to make her costume seemed obvious: I’d been obsessed with Mandalorians and I’ve costuming as a custom one for years, so when Dave Filoni started giving us these awesome canon Mandalorian women like Bo-Katan and Sabine, I eventually couldn’t resist; it had been so long since I’d made a Mando. Sabine spoke to me almost immediately: I’ve always been partial to good guys (Go Rebels!), she wore pink, like my custom Mando, and she was a sassy artist-type and I’m an illustrator, too. I related to her instantly, even though her character design took a bit to grow on me. Now I love it, especially the checkerboard shoulder ala Biggs Darklighter. Once I saw her operating on Star Wars Rebels, I had to have her.

In terms of my custom Mando, I love the creativity that comes with making original characters. I’ve always had a million OCs wandering around my head, and I’ll always be drawn to my own, personally-created characters. I picture Ivven as a grumpy, cold-hearted type who travels around the galaxy with her KOTOR-style crew as a high-risk smuggler of sorts.

http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/news/wp-content/uploads/emma-as-sabine-2-960-520x280.jpg

What has been one of your most memorable experience as this character?

Sabine was a new experience for me. As someone who usually costumes as unrecognizable custom characters, wearing a timely, relevant, and popular new character was a trip. It was amazing wearing her at Celebration Anaheim; the reactions were so positive, and I was blown away by all the little girls who were so excited to get their pictures taken with me. That, and I got to hang out in the AMAZING Mos Eisley cantina set at Celebration with a Hera costumer for like two hours. I never wanted to leave. It was so immersive.

As for Ivven, I’ve worn her for so many years at this point, that the memories are starting to blend together. Honestly, I think the moment when I first saw a picture of myself in the costume after just finishing it, and thinking, “…Wow. I look so… cool!” after worrying myself to death over whether it turned out or not, was one of the more memorable moments. Traveling in groups of
custom Mandos is pretty great, too, every time it happens; I love hanging out with other Mercs.

What were some of your challenges to get your costume just right?I went into building my custom Mando with very little costume experience, and that was a lot of hand-skills to learn. It took a while to simply understand quality, in order to judge whether things were up to par. I literally learned to metalwork to make Ivven, because I knew from the start that I wanted to make her out of 18 gauge aluminum. It took a good year or two and a failed Mandalorian costume in order to be good enough at metalworking to finally make a quality kit that all came together. That, and the chest plates, and getting them to fit my figure the way I wanted. That took a while to get right, understandably.

As for Sabine, the challenges of translating a cartoon rendering to a real-life equivalent was rather trying; cartoons rarely give you seams or realistic models. Sabine was the first time I had to learn Sintra or real leatherworking, so that was also a learning curve; I’m getting better at picking things up the longer I costume, though, so that wasn’t too bad. I made absolutely everything on her costume from scratch, including the patterns for the cloth parts. The biggest challenge with Sabine came down to time: I was on a super tight budget, and was literally still painting her 15 minutes before driving to the airport for her first convention appearance. Somehow, I pulled it off! Sabine’s paint scheme is super detailed and particular; painting was definitely the biggest challenge, in the end, and getting all the lines clean, while also factoring in time for it all to dry.

What advice do you have for other cosplayers?

Advice? Everyone sucks when they start. My first costume (another Mando) was a big hot mess. Don’t ever be afraid to scrap every single piece and start from scratch. Persistence and a stubbornness against giving up will get you places. If you don’t have talent, you can learn talent.

After about 6 years of costuming, I am at the point where I know I can do anything if I am willing to work until it’s right. I can learn any skill I don’t have, and so can you. Be a perfectionist, but wear an imperfect costume. It’s about fun. Never let something like that keep you from wearing your costume. Only make the characters you love. You don’t need a ton of money or a ton of support to make great costumes. You’re never done upgrading. Join a costume club; the opportunities and communities they open to you will blow your mind.

What is your favorite Star Wars moment from the films, books, comics, games, etc.?

Oh gosh. Don’t make me choose. If we’re talking the films, the moment where Han swoops in and clears the way for Luke to blow up the Death Star, and Luke’s reaction to scoring the hit; that build-up of the music right before it blows. Episode IV is my favorite, just for that scene. I to this day can’t watch that moment without getting breathless.

As for everything else, I started with the EU and moved to the movies, so it’s hard for me to narrow that category. The Revan reveal sticks with me pretty hard. Right now, though, I still haven’t picked myself off the floor after hearing Rex’s voice in the big Rebels Season Two trailer. So yeah: that moment at Celebration Anaheim where they premiered the trailer and revealed Rex was back, and I nearly busted my knee plates and rangefinder when I slid out of my chair. That’s my current favorite Star Wars moment. The clones mean so much to me.

Thank you Emma for taking the time to answer these questions for us! Be sure and tune in to Star Wars Rebels on Disney XD on Saturday, February 18th to see Sabine Wren confront her mother on Mandalore!

The Omaha Storm Chasers, a Minor League Baseball team for the Kansas City Royals, just announced a special Boba Fett jersey for their May 5th Star Wars Night game against the Redbirds.

The players and coaches will wear the jerseys, which will later be auctioned off that evening to benefit The Methodist Hospital Foundation.

Several professional sports teams have done things like this before, such as the Bradenton Marauders (MiLB team for the Pittsburgh Pirates) in 2014. It's also common that the 501st will have cosplayers before the game begins for some great photo ops.

Is this screenshot some kind of blog?

MacheteFett, Wheelsinthejic updated the post above. It's Quora. The link is up there. smile

Wheelsinthejic, it sounds like Star Wars Tales #11, which is a comic book and always had far-fetched plots. The Quora response doesn't exactly sound complete and it's definitely not canon.

Star Wars: Underworld, the shelved project circa 2005 that would have been a live-action Star Wars television show rumored to involve Boba Fett, is abuzz on Reddit and now MovieWeb today -- but for all the wrong reasons. Someone saw the release date to the user-submitted content website IMDb as listing December 2018.

Wait a second now.

As we've seen in the past with Temuera Morrison being added to projects on IMDb incorrectly in 2014, we had to take a closer look with an IMDb Pro account, which lists more information than the public website. Here's what we see:

http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/tn/340x145/news/wp-content/uploads/star-wars-underworld-imdb-pro-2017-02-14.png

As you can see here, there is not only no activity on the pre-production and production front, but also a handful of old credits like Rick McCallum are there. Rick was originally attached to the project but hasn't produced Star Wars content since the prequels.

http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/tn/340x145/news/wp-content/uploads/star-wars-underworld-imdb-pro-details-2017-02-14.png

This sure looks like fan speculation and another goof with IMDb authenticity. Move along.

On a more positive note: are you curious for vintage information on what this project was all hyped to become? We last mentioned Underworld in January 2012 when a movie site paired it with the comic book by the same name and also in an MTV News summary where Daniel Logan was also then listed as rumored only.

Attakus, who recently re-released smaller scale versions of their Boba Fett and Jango Fett figures, have announced more Fetts this year. It's nice to see one is noted as actually new rather than the same mold scaled down.

Here's the full announcement. (Note: we've corrected a typo.)

Star Wars by Attakus:

I play it and think it is really fun but the dumb guild I am with doesn't do anything (Madfire)..... My username is MandosRising. Does anyone play Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes too? My username for that one is MandaloreRising and I run a guild called Mando'ade. It used to be really active but now all my players aren't doing anything and it's really gone downhill. I've been thinking about disbanding it but I wasn't sure. If you guys have a guild on there too, I would be happy to join.

Our guild on Force Arena is very active and enthusiastic. Lots of scrimmages and 2 vs. 2 matches. If you look up BFFC and apply, I'll look out for "MandosRising" the next time there's an open slot and try to add 'ya!

As for Galaxy of Heroes, not a player myself, but good to know you are! Feel free to start a brand-new thread called "Galaxy of Heroes" on here to find other players perhaps?

We're doing a lot more clean-up work on the message boards, plus more integration with the rest of the web site, like with the Bounty collectibles database here.

If you spot any bugs, or have any ideas/suggestions, reply here if you'd like!

Boba Fett and Slave I are playable in the mobile game. BFFC has a guild, which connects up to 50 players with a private chat and ability to team up or scrimmage.

Are you playing? If so, post your username below so we can find 'ya.

We also give priority to BFFC members and fans when a spot opens up in the guild, and will keep an eye on applicants that match up to usernames here.

See you on the battlefield! ;-)

The latest Star Wars mobile game for iOS and Android starts you off with four legendary character cards. Here are some ways we've found to get the Boba Fett legendary card for free.

http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/tn/340x145/news/wp-content/uploads/star-wars-force-arena-mission-new-hope.jpg

http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/tn/340x145/news/wp-content/uploads/star-wars-force-arena-mission-new-hope-ending.jpg

<ol>
    [*]Find the Missions menu from the top right. Under Special as of the date of this article, there's a 10 part challenge called A New Hope. Pay attention to each step since some are simple and others can take 3-4 tries. At the end of the ten, you get to swap out one of your existing legendary cards for a new one of your choice, which can be Boba Fett.[/*]
    [*]Find the Missions menu again from the top right. Under Basic, you'll initially see Han Solo as the goal card if you finish everything -- at least as of the date of this article. After you complete the requirements to get him, the next legendary card is Boba Fett. While this may take a few extra hurdles to reach, this is another known way to get him for free.[/*]
</ol>

http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/tn/340x145/news/wp-content/uploads/star-wars-force-arena-mission-double-fett.jpg

With the above, you could choose to have two Boba Fett cards, which is the basic to upgrade him. The last piece of the upgrade puzzle is a 11,000 cost, which either takes a bit of time or throwing money at the game.

How did you get your Boba Fett card in the game? Let us know and we'll add it to the list.

Helmet nod to BFFC's own Gustavo for figuring these tips out very quickly.

Well boba armor was the same as Jango feet's armor just a little more design with his green color and all, but all in all his mandalarin armor could or should I say probably saved him from the sand pit he fell into. I have heard that he is getting his own movie Sience we all obviously love him he's gotten really popular.

Almost! Boba's armor is a little different beyond just the color, but good thinking.

You're also right on about it helping him in the Sarlacc. In several stories, now called "legends," he gets out of the pit in various ways. But now in the "canon" or "true" storyline, it's to be determined what happened after he fell in. smile

As for his own film, that's still just rumored! It might happen, but it hasn't been confirmed yet.

Great review, ctxboy1981!

The prison bust definitely added some drama. Think they made a good call with that eleventh hour change-up.

How many times have you seen the film?

Hello everyone!

My future husband is a huge Boba Fett fan, and he has been searching for a 1995 Antioch Publishing Boba Fett bookmark for years. If anyone has any leads, (or if anyone has one they would be willing to sell) I would greatly appreciate the insight. Thank you so much!

Very cool. I actually have that one (but not for sale).

Best bet would be eBay. Will add a record for it to Bounty to keep tabs on it.
