Ahh. Thanks for checking. All figured out now, the $45 vs. $579.

With all BFFC-arranged links, if you're ready to shop and make a purchase, the company gives an additional percentage as a referral fee to BFFC with specific links. As explained in the "About BFFC" section, it's all re-invested into the site, as should be the case with all Star Wars fan sites.

This just in...

The blaster is a limited edition of 1,500. In case you missed the details, see our April 6, 2006 report. Our own Blaster4Hire also started a thread on this earlier, here.

On the MasterReplicas.com site right now, it's reporting this at $45... clearly this is incorrect -- someone call them on it -- as the list price is $579.

If you're considering a purchase -- and I assume most younger collectors will pass -- BFFC is in the Master Replicas affiliate program.

I risk a ban if I speak my mind about those four.

Actually, that's inaccurate. None of the posted rules are against being "dedicated."

1. This is incorrect. For this -- a 10+ year volunteer project -- I answer important e-mails promptly.
2. Please review the Rules here. The last rule says: "Be respectful of other users." That said, Dealer of Death is perfectly in-line to bring up a just and thoughtful critique.

"PC" figures? Uh... More like avatars.

They're all made by one artist: Jerome.

The "return" link at the bottom doesn't work, but here's the full "cine/TV" set: http://jerome.galica.free.fr/cinetv/cinetv.htm

I believe it will only be an e-book, and therefore not in print.

... Is that "Koeller" signed on the painting?

Author Andy Mangles (http://www.andymangels.com/swgalaxy.html) may know, as he contributed to the issue. The insert poster was painted by Jason Palmer.

(Related note: Ken Steacy was the artist for Star Wars Galaxy Magazine #1.)

As for the icons, re-read what I said. I can resist, because there's one and it isn't "smiling."

As for suggesting a link, of course it's OK.


(74 replies, posted in Dialogue)

Of course I can add, remove, or swap out the images here. But this isn't an image-posting board, but a community for "focused and constructive discussion of Boba Fett and the fan following." Adding generic and random Star Wars icons isn't relevant; however, if it's emoticons featuring Boba Fett -- which has been discussed before -- that's an appropriate, relative, and different case. You're welcome to suggest and use the icons on other boards, including your own.

You just need to look deeper. For example:

Jango - Link - TF.N changed the address to all fan films without putting an automatic redirect from the old address.

Fett vs. The Empire - Link - This Quicktime file is right there on the page.

The Dark Redemption - Link - Same issue, hosted at TF.N.

Dark Uprising - This has disappeared. Official site is gone, and nothing off Google suggests a new place. Maybe someone downloaded it? BFFC can host video.

Shadows of the Empire - Link - Again, the file is right there on the site. It's a little complicated to download, because it's a very large file.

All in all, links go bad. You can always e-mail the host of a web site to ask. But links to external sites are the responsibility of other site owners.

As for other film sites, you covered the primary ones, except the TF.N fan film directory.

Which fan films are you looking for? We have a pretty extensive collection, beyond searching individual sites.

I don't think you know what you're talking about with citing sources and due credit to the artist(s) who made them. If it's even going to be a consideration, at least post where you're stealing from.

There it is again, on eBay. Someone selling 10 issues for $10, including #22. Search for "Kitbuilders Magazine 10 Issues." Ends Friday, August 18. For something this obscure, yet available weekly on eBay now, it looks like you're the only Fett fan who wants it, right now of all the readers here.

Is Yoda the only one smiling? Thrawn, maybe? I think to replace the "smileys" here, they need to smile. But thanks for finding these. I'll only add it to the Desktop section if you can cite the original source.

That's because you're hitting up the "ebay.de" site, not "ebay.com." The same item should be available, since eBay doesn't limit international bidding.

That's a fairly recent watch. Maybe someone knows the year. Maybe around 2003 and 2005?

Soon? No. That page is the same as it was in September 2004, as available from the Wayback Machine at archive.org:

The auction certainly says US only, but maybe you can contact the seller. If they want to unload it, maybe it's worthwhile.

As for the cover, it's a little odd it's not the model that's covered inside. The site with the cover scan also has this. "This issue's cover kit (Kaiyodo's Boba Fett) was built, painted and customized by our own Joe Jobe."

and heres the cover of the mag i'm looking for with the article in it... just noticed its a Kaiyodo Fett model they used but the principles the same.

Good observation. That's the wrong cover model. The magazine has a web site, but no article archive. Their back-issue page doesn't have that exact cover, so it's probably sold out.

You're actually in luck if you use eBay. One match right now for a set of three issues, including #22. Search for "Kitbuilders Model Magazine 1996 97 LOT 21 22 23 NEW." Expires in 17 hours. No bids. Around $20 when you include shipping.

Hope you get it. That's a good find from 1997.
