So does anyone have any ideas on the paint or other things I could add to it?

I'll post a couple photos of it in it's current state in a day or two.

Sounds very cool! Seen a few Fett-inspired motorcycles before, so especially curious to see how you're doing it. Maybe share some work-in-progress photos first?

McHale262, welcome to BFFC! Glad to see you here after all your great tweets!

Spotted in 2015 at Baylands Park (Mountain View, California) by wcolby1, a plane enthusiast who shares his findings on YouTube.

Phil Haney also tried making one with the Power of the Force 2 Boba Fett action figure. Check it out how how to process with taping a quadcopter on to the acton figure at Break.com.

Last year, Olivier C made a Millennium Falcon drone out of a modified quadcopter, which he showed off in a YouTube video.

ctxboy1981, it does seem to go in a different direction than the original "Clint Eastwood" approach.

ctxboy1981, definitely punctuation in "Empire."

But we'll see about "Jedi." In the new canon, he's neither dead nor alive. (We track this stuff at http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/news/fet … -or-alive/.)

why do they make mm's dress up like boba!

Oh, just some cross-promotion of those brands. It's been going on for many years now. ;-)

Here are some examples:

Mpire Boba Fett Ornament (2005)
M&M's Mpire 2-Pack (Boba Fett and Han Solo) (2005)

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:


Contest Entry by Dave Merrell
Country: United Kingdom


Contest Entry by Steve Jones
Country: United States
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 Miles
Country: United Kingdom


Contest Entry by Adam Sanders
Country: United States


Contest Entry by Eric Weathers
Country: United States
Statement: Line art by Eric Weathers. Colors by Matt Davis.


Contest Entry by Daniel Reyes
Country: Ecuador
Statement: Boba Fett, the bounty hunter, was not killed when he fell into the Sarlacc. He was trapped there for almost 30 years.Thinking, meditating, coming up with a plan to scape the gargantuan beast. Now finally free, he's about to face the ones that doomed him.


Contest Entry by Elisa Ardell
Country: Canada


Contest Entry by Carlos NCT
Country: Spain


Contest Entry by Patrick David
Country: United States


Contest Entry by Spillbuilt
Country: United States
Statement: Indigestible is a post-Sarlacc Pit Boba Fett concept by SpillBuilt artist Anthony J. Vasquez.


Contest Entry by Nate Gonzalez
Country: United States
Statement: This piece is called Escape and it takes place not too long after Boba fell into the Sarlacc Pit. He's just escaped and is now finishing off the disgusting creature with his ship Slave One. Boba and scenery are painting by me and the imaae of Slave One is a sketch I did that I rendered in Photoshop.


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.


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.

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. :-)

No way! We actually started this website back in 1996, just about 20 years ago now. You -- and everyone else -- are a perfect age for BFFC. ;-)
