Recently, Variety spoke with the "toy industry's Merrill Lynch," Tom Derby, owner of Collectible Investment Brokerage in Norcross, Georgia. Two of six are Boba Fett, beating out Transformers but not quite G.I. Joe or Darth Vader.

"Star Wars" Boba Fett set<br>

A complete set of nine Boba Fett dolls, including all stages of the prototype.

"Star Wars" Boba Fett<br>
$50,000 (on a card backing; one in existence)<br>

This is the original model, which has a rocket that fires out of his back. The rocket mechanism was killed when children choked on a similar element in a "Battlestar Galactica" toy.

Good question, sithkittie. Welcome to the boards. smile

I think he'd be dark chocolate, maybe 72% Cacao Las Islas Caribbean from Scharffen Berger. wink

(This post should be in the Fans forum, not General, which is for "observations, opinions, and ideas surrounding Boba." Moving it there now. And please use more specific subjects.)

Topic continued here.

Repeat topic. Maybe you could wait until the replica is out and take a look at it in person somewhere? I don't think the 1,500 limited edition will sell out right away.

Wow, that's a hard one to find. It came out a little while ago, but it's always a premium at collectible shops.

I could ask. It might be easier with a chat, rather than just dropping by here.

This request is also in the wrong category... Please note.

Collectibles, not collectables. ;-)

Moreso a page than a site. For sites, see the Japanese site Slave1.jp and -- odd to have to self-promote this -- BobaFett.com's own Bounty database. Both updated fairly often. Lots of original pictures at the Slave1.jp site, which is especially nice.

Old news. Here's more on the subject: Boba in the live action TV series..

And, for anyone who wants to explore outside the forums... BobaFett.com's TV news category.

Tsuneo Sanda is the cover artist. He's done a handful of posters for the Star Wars Fan Club, like one of Slave 1, another of Boba and Jango...

As always, please feel free to submit news to BFFC, and we'll make it front page if we haven't already.

I just hope they don't let Denning screw with the character, as he has a VERY bad tendency to destroy good characters (the Dark Nest trilogy).

Fortunately, that's why there's fandom. A lot of people don't agree with how Boba Fett turned out and that's all OK to voice here. No agenda to push.

Anyone have a scan of this? Is this Insider #90?

i can easliy do it but i dont have a scanner and would not know how to use it if i did.otherwise alot of my artwork would be on the net.

Try asking around. People at libraries or copymats could help you out. Places like Kinkos have scanners for rent, too, for a small fee. We all would love to see your work!

Comin' up to 500 members (though, another 0 post purge pending) and should surpass 20,000 posts by then, thanks to the "top members" here typing daily, since this board refreshed in February 2006. The boards from 2001 to 2006 had nearly 30,000 posts from 1,740 members. wink Not bad for Boba Fett, but nothin' on those Dented Helmet guys -- what a community of costumers over there. smile

Another FYI... these boards are growing in activity. We had 10,000 posts within the first five months. Now nearly the same amount in the last three months.

Any more votes on this? Looks like it might be anonymous, but still with one vote per user per topic (unlike some voting going on around here wink ).

How is this supposed to work if everyone can vote more than once? tongue Bias to all the daily visitors..

Just working to tie it in with the boards so you use one login/password. That's the only delay right now.

No one's taken out if they post >= 1 post.

Moving this to the Collectibles forum, since it's not as much fitting for "observations, opinions, and ideas surrounding Boba."

Hey that's pretty snazzy for SW.com!

For nearly $500.

Of course there's a difference between this one for $18K and the normally released figure, loose at antique stores for $20. This prototype is practically one of a kind.

I can't imagine a chat working here.

This site gets 20,000 unique visitors a month, or about 700 a day. (Total pageviews, thanks to the fans of this fan club, get us up to nearly 3,500 pages per day; that's about 5 pages per visit throughout all of BobaFett.com.) Most are from the United States, mostly in the East, South, and Midwest than the West. So, I can imagine it working. We also attract a pretty diverse, intelligent crowd; I bet some of the chats could be fairly good. Focusing on quality conversations and connections would be my motivation for its development, not just to have one for the sake of TrueWarrior.
