The Build-A-Bear Boba Fett costume has been out for a little while now, but it's newly available on Amazon.

Thoughts on the piece, especially for the whole Build-A-Bear world where you go through a fun little ritual when buying one in store?

[UPDATE: We have the winners! Dave Merrell and Carlos NCT! They're both being mailed Gentle Giant Mandalorian bookends, completely free of charge. Thank you to everyone who entered!]

Enough time is passed to share a spoiler: Boba Fett did not appear in The Force Awakens despite a handful of rumors. Regardless, we started and concluded a fan art contest called Boba Fett Awakens to imagine (or predict) if he did appear.

Below are the entries, all of which are eligible for our Most Creative or Best in Show awards, where we'll be donating (including shipping!) a Star Wars Mandalorian Bookends by Gentle Giant ($60 value) for each winner.

We have not announced the winners, but in the spirit of awards season, we want to share with you all the nominees. These global entries are in the order of when we received them, with the early birds coming first:

Statement: This is a modified photo of a fan made Jango Fett costume. I edited the original photo over 10 years ago into various Mandalorians. One of the most popular variations was this Shadow Fett. I think this concept would look good with Kylo.

Contest Entry by Quinn Crain
Country: United States
Statement: Into Obscurity aka The Fett Awakens is oils on 18x24in canvas. The interlude on Tatooine from Aftermath served as inspiration for this piece, being that a mysterious set of Mandalorian armor with acid burns is found among charred parts of a sail barge. Here, the set of armor is nestled inside the ruins of a sail barge before it is scavenged, charred and bleached by an explosion. A hole ripped into the side of the barge serves as a door into the outside, a sandstorm sweeping in... a faint figure walks into it, and into obscurity.

Jason Wingreen was the original voice of Boba Fett. We just learned he passed away on December 25, 2015. This is our tribute to him.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4UYzn0KGM0

Anyone who saw The Empire Strikes Back in theaters or on VHS/laserdisc between 1980 and 2003 would have heard his lines. After 2004, DVD and Blu-ray releases were re-dubbed to conform to the prequels and used Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett.

Jason was born October 9, 1920. He was interviewed for Star Wars Insider #49 (May/June 2000) in which he shared this story of the role:

My agent called me and said to go over to the recording studio, where I met Gary Kurtz and Irvin Kershner. Normally, you see the face of an actor you're dubbing, so you have to lip-synch. But that was no problem here -- I could say the lines at any time. I got in position, they ran the film a few times, and I said the lines. Kershner came out and made a suggestion or two and went back in the control room, I did it again, and I was finished.

Thoughts on Captain Phasma? What about that twist for Han Solo? No Mandalorians in Maz's Castle, yet the flag out front?

Want to discuss what you saw in "The Force Awakens?" Please do it here.

SPOILERS AHEAD.

Jedi Hunter, true, Star Wars #5 definitely showed a more ruthless Fett. It did seem not much different than some of the 1990's Dark Horse Comics "Boba Fett" stories. Either way, all points that Boba Fett is a tick towards evil, perhaps in the sense of the willingness to go there without second guessing or complicated feelings.

Jedi Hunter, fantastic! Glad to hear you're such a long time Boba Fett (and Boba Fett Fan Club) fan!

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

The original post said it retailed originally for 750 euros. Wouldn't that mean it's even more valuable in American dollars?

Good catch! My error there. You are right. By today's conversion, that would be 816.26 U.S. dollars if being completely accurate. :-)

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

  • Most Creative
    This will be awarded to one artist for their best effort and concept (that may trump technical execution) with their fan art

  • Best in Show
    This will be awarded to one artist for superb craftsmanship and overall idea with their fan art

Prizes

We will award two sets of the forthcoming Star Wars Mandalorian Bookends by Gentle Giant ($60 value), one set to each winner.

http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/news/wp-content/uploads/mandalorian-bookends-tn.jpg

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 these to help promote the contest and help get some example ideas going for you:
