WWMando, thanks for the note.

I see Garrison Carida has two bounty hunters: BH-2177 Darryl Moran and BH-3356 Michael Hagedorn.

One album in the Garrison's image gallery reminded me of a photo I just saw on Flickr, from "Boba Fett BH/TK-2177's." Maybe there's a connection.

Robot Chicken: Star Wars has a new web site, with a Boba Fett trailer special for the site.

Direct link is interesting because all the files are named after the bounty hunters:

Please continue to report offending posts, rather than take the issue too much into your own hands. The best approach here is to ignore the tangents and continue to lead a quality, forward discussion. Thanks. smile

"The panelists hinted that there would be more revelations about characters such as Boba Fett and Gen. Grievous but laughed and apologized for keeping mum on plot points. They cited the orders from "emperor" Lucas to keeps their lips sealed."

Due to popular demand, our news coverage is back and better than ever. Completely new design, functionality, etc. but same old content and a lot more in the queue.

http://bobafett.com/news/

New Improvements
In the coming days, the following features will be available to test drive:
- E-mail to a Friend
- Rate Posts
- Add to Social Network links (TBD)
- Search All News
- Recent Headlines linked on bobafett.com/boards/

MySpace Bulletins
For our "friends" on MySpace, our first bulletins also went out today and will continue to shout out news as it comes.

Why the delay?
Front-page news was on hiatus since February due to problems with MovableType. This new news/blog site is powered by Wordpress.

News Editors
Moderators will be able to add news to the site. There may be a call out for more news-specific editors. Contact me to e-mail or private message if you'd like to be considered.

Lord Revan, for a fire alarm? I was thinking of going to C4 this weekend. I didn't think many BFFCers were in the neighborhood. I'm sure it'll be in the news in the coming days, too.

Darth Maul Clone, soap operas are for just old people?

Mandalorian Assassin, the Clone Wars series messed up the storylines? I thought every single thing outside the films messed up storylines. wink

Sol Gonsar, the topic's title isn't so clear. Today's the 30th anniversary of Star Wars.

Rebelscum's post says this might be a second project. The date on the web site, with the Star Wars Animated logo, is tomorrow. Something might be announced at C4, which is going on right now in Los Angeles.

Thanks to Rebelscum.com for breaking this news today and thumbnailing the now-offline Boba Fett image. wink

Is there a second 3D animated series potentially in the works? Rumors have been circulating for several months now, and despite several contradictions, a new website has surfaced with images of 3D animated classic characters! Star Wars: Tales of the New Republic now has a new website with several photos that feature Luke Skywalker, Wedge Antilles, Boba Fett, and more! Click on the thumbnails above to see for yourself what may (or may not) be the next best animated series.

Updated daily until all 30 are there. Expect Boba Fett, since they're featuring "the 30 greatest Star Wars characters."

Mandalorian, no problem. smile Just glad to explain the bigger picture.

There's a list of 9 ways to help, aside from the programming issue. (Help with the news delay is actually a Wordpress issue, migrated off of MovableType, and some design work to tie it back into the site.)

Sure, this site is 11 years old. It's getting older. But it's never been better, too. 500 unique visitors with 3,000 pageviews a day. The message boards rank #2 in popularity. Consider the other hits here, like Humor > Caption, Multimedia or  and Manual.

1. One part of the home page -- the news -- is under construction, yes, and the clock ticks off the days. As for "they," there is only one person volunteering web development improvements. There's a volunteer ad posted. In the interim, most news has been posted on these boards. But thank you for your observation and your interest. Consider subscribing to the RSS feed, so you get your news as soon as that feature is back on.

2. What Boba Fett stuff would you like to see? This site is filled with it. And a handful of people here are beta testing a brand new feature I'm sure you'll enjoy. Browse the "Dialogue" forum here for more news on site updates.

3. RPGs are one part of the message boards, but there are around 10-20 posts or replies each day. Feel free to start new topics, revive older ones or invite new people to the boards by spreading the word about BFFC.

All in all, this is a not-for-profit, unofficial web site, run by many different types of volunteers and consumed by fans and spectators from around the world. It's very much alive. But please contact me directly at the e-mail below and I'll happily field your questions, comments, concerns or ideas. Thanks. smile
