Go for it, Terra! That sounds great. Beyond just users here already, I'll do the promotion for 'ya on our social media channels, to bring attention to the boards.
I don't follow all of the Angry Birds crossovers, but aren't all of the villains pigs?
Welcome back, Terra! Thanks for the compliment!

SESSION KITCHEN in DENVER, COLORADO
Tipped off by Thrillist, we see that the Denver-based restaurant Session Kitchen (Yelp) is doing a Boba Fett themed entre for May 4th. One of the entrees is the Pad Thai Amidala with Boba Fett-ucini, a bizarrely delicious combo of prawns, chicken, lemongrass boba, peanut, ginger, chile, and lime, notes the review. See the article for a picture of the dish.

This reminds me of one custom motorcycle helmet, airbrushed by AirGraffix. They sell it online at http://www.airgraffix.com/collections/f … /boba-fett and they have a video of it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMFnFymlaJc.
Welcome to the site, arc trooper Darkrush! Glad to have you here.
Topic: [NEWS] "Black Series" Boba Fett Re-Issued in Wave 4 (0 replies, posted in Dialogue)
Thanks to rock-star reporter Adam Pawlus over at Entertainment Earth, we just found out that the latest wave of Star Wars Black Series action figures will include more Boba Fett.
It's not a re-paint (e.g. ROTJ vs. ESB) and not a variant (e.g. circle or no circle on the wrist). It's the same UPC and SKU, now packed with different figures in the case.
This is great news for fans who are still having trouble finding the figure. (See our updated post on which stores have healthy stocks of the figure, as reported by buyers.)
According to Pawlus, Hasbro has been doing this for years, but not with the Black Series. There will be a new date stamp on the figure, and batch variation is possible, but well, it always is. I wouldn't expect anything mortals without microscopes will notice, he tweets.
The wave includes Anakin Skywalker (Revenge of the Sith), Stormtrooper, Clone Trooper (Attack of the Clones), and -- finally -- the same Boba Fett (Empire Strikes Back) was Wave 2.
At Toy Fair this year, Wave 4 was supposed to include Chewbacca and Luke Skywalker instead of Boba Fett and Clone Trooper.
Pre-order the case right now. The release date is June 2014.
Entertainment Earth is also still selling cases of Wave 2, which includes Han Solo, Greedo, and Slave Leia in the case.

Anyone ready to start an RPG? This topic has been a handy resource for starting one.
Feedback always appreciated, too, as times change with using forums vs. social media.
I love everything about Boba Fett. I really admire his calculating intelligence and how he handles different situations in the various expanded universe books I've read. Then everything else adds the mystery behind him and makes him one of the most interesting characters in the Star Wars universe.
Nice! Welcome to the site, BABoba, and thanks for adding to this forum thread!
Do you think the prequels added or took away the mystery you like about Boba Fett?
We've added an easier way to play hosted MP3s, and also linked up to several new tracks hosted on Soundcloud. Check it out!
Great points. Which Kenobi book?
Any favorite level or technique when playing the Boba Fett "pig" in Angry Birds?
"Episode 7" was announced to be about 30 years after the events of "Return of the Jedi." This makes Boba Fett approximately 66, whether or not you believe he's still in the Sarlacc. Do you think we'll see him? And do you think he's actually 66 for the time of Episode 7?
Now that "The Clone Wars" released its sixth and final season, we never got closure on the Bounty Hunter arc. What do you imagine or wish happened?
Srofezilla, good point!
How are you considering three times. Are you counting "Dark Empire," "Jawas of Doom," "Tales of the Bounty Hunters," "Tales from Jabba's Palace," and "The Mandalorian Armor?"
There's a good breakdown at http://scifi.stackexchange.com/question … s-his-fate of four of those five.
Also, be sure to check out the Fettpedia record, now updated for the Sarlacc:
Additions? Corrections? (Anyone here with a BFFC account can update Fettpedia.)

Moments ago, we've finished worked with Google Webmaster Tools to remove the problem and audit the security problem that led to malicious code being added to a 2009 post here on the boards. This included upgrading the message board application to the very latest version available.
The code was a BBCODE link to an image, which wasn't an image. The site hosting that file is also rightfully flagged as malicious. We're working to correct all of the problems, which also led to Facebook calling links to this site as malicious. No files hosted here on our servers were ever an issue, and this is a problem of association via user generated content only.
Thank you for your understanding and patience while we solved this issue and work towards an even tighter ship moving forward,
Sorry to hear your statue was robbed. You don't happen to have a non-generic image of the item? Or it's serial number?
Thanks for plugging your service. Loading the page throws an empty page.

Welcome back, bats! We've all missed you!
Death watch rogue, several fans here are teens indeed! Perhaps a more specific question could call attention to these fans in particular?
Hoping everyone is, and has been, having a great holiday season this year. Giving and receiving gifts is often part of the tradition. Any favorite gifts given or gifts received this year? Give a shout out.
Hello, Noid02, and welcome!
Feel free to introduce yourself on this link, which is called a topic. Always good to follow up new posts in response to the topic, or replies to the topic. Or create a new topic if nothing you find suits your interest.
We've turned on a new feature that gives everyone a default avatar. You can still change it up, but this gives everyone at least something to get started. :-)

Hi Lenny, thanks for the post!
