Yeah, I don't know what it is about the blue Twi'leks.  All the other ones are cute, but the blue ones.....Mmmmmmmmmm.

;-)

Cat did say on her Facebook page that the original concept for it was based on nose artwork, so that was pretty neat.  I guess that explains the pose.  I notice they have quite a few Twi'lek girls on the nose art of the Republic Gunships on the Clone Wars cartoon.  Pretty cool.

I don't know if anyone knows her, but Cat Staggs has been doing a lot of Star Wars art over the last several years. 

http://www.starwars.com/eu/explore/prof … index.html

I was introduced to her artwork at the last San Diego Comic Con I attended, a few years ago.  She had some really nice Boba Fett artwork on display (one of which I bought right before the show ended). 

Anyway, she has a pretty cool Deviant Art Page.

Yesterday, she posted this little jem on there.

Pretty freakin' sweet.  Wish they'd make this into some posters. 

I was thinking it'd be some pretty cool nose art to go on the side of the Slave 1, kind of like the Andrasta.

Talk about egos.....

A new Star Wars Adventures comics is coming out later this year, around December time frame.  This one is finally about our fan fav.

Boba Fett and the Ship of Fear.

Found this on the Newsarama Dark Horse Comics page.  Haven't seen it listed in Previews yet.  But then, I haven't gotten October's mailed to me yet, either.  I'm guessing it might be in this months.

Yep, here's the most recent thread about Karen Traviss and some of the entries involve the explaination of why she stopped doing the RC books.

So, I'm playing the demo to Force Unleashed II.  There's just something kind of self-satisfying about being able to lop off arms and heads now when you're using your lightsaber.

Oh yeah, and there's this neat little background easter egg in the Kamino cloning facility you escape from.

Nice that they can incorporate original Fett concept art that Ralph McQuarrie did way back in the day.  Already it looks to be pretty good.

And for your 3D entertainment.

This one coming out ain't the actual Slave 1 toy.  It's a snap-tite model.  I know MPC and Airfix released one back it the 80's. 

http://www.starwarsmodels.com/slavea.html

http://www.collectorsgalleryonline.com/Merchant2/graphics/00000001/slave1airfix.jpg


And the one AMT/ERTL released back in the mid-2000's was just re-release of that same mould. 

http://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/kits/ … 8306.shtml

http://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/kits/amt/images/amt_slave1_title.jpg


I can't find a maker or scale size for this new snap-tite version that's coming out, yet, so don't know if it's just going to be a re-release or not.

Haven't opened up the Jango Fett Slave 1 model that got released a few years back by Fine Molds.  I know it's a different scale than the original molds.  The old ones were 1/85 and Fine Molds kits are 1/72 scale.  I'm glad they finally made a Slave 1 that's in scale with most of my fighter plane models.  Just looks better.  They made a Jango and Boba version of those.

The detail on them look ten times better than the old ones, I think.  Still need to get a Boba version, though.

They definitely look good standing next to each other.  I think I like the model stand better on the Find Molds version, too.

I noticed that AMT/ERTL has been re-releasing a lot of Star Trek models too this year.  Some updated parts, but mostly the main change is better detailed decals.

I've been kind of remiss in posting some of the neat Fett items I've been finding on the internet that are coming out this Fall.  I blame it on work and the Star Trek Online game that one of my buddies got me addicted to playing.  I've never been a big PC gamer, always preferred the console stuff, but this has actually got me looking forward to when the Old Republic game comes out next year. 

Anyway, on to the Bounty for this Fall.

We obviously have the Addidas shoes coming out that were on the main page news.

Something I hadn't seen advertised before was a new leather Boba Fett wallet that Star Wars Shop is putting out later this month.

http://shop.starwars.com/catalog/produc … id=1300424

http://shop.starwars.com/kernel/imageload?table=cat_images&key1=1323506_f&key2=-100_f

Some other items have been available for pre-sale on the ACME Archives website for a while now, but now our affiliates at Entertainment Earth are also pre-selling them for an October release.  These are some of the newer ACME Paper Giclees with Boba Fett art.  Most of these are kind of pricey because of their limited number run.

The first is by from artist Brian Rood.

http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodi … SWTLTD100A
http://www.entertainmentearth.com/images/%5CAUTOIMAGES%5CAMSWTLTD100Alg.jpg


The second is called "Carbonite is Forever" by Cliff Chiang.  These came out and were being sold at Celebration 5, earlier this year. 

http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodi … AMSWTLTD90
http://www.entertainmentearth.com/images/%5CAUTOIMAGES%5CAMSWTLTD90lg.jpg


Then there's "Mr. Fett" by John Alvin

http://www.entertainmentearth.com/images/%5CAUTOIMAGES%5CAMSWTLTD97Alg.jpg


One I really like is called "Fett's Prize" by William Silvers

http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodi … MSWTLTD89A
http://www.entertainmentearth.com/images/%5CAUTOIMAGES%5CAMSWTLTD89Alg.jpg


Another neat little item is a set of coasters that uses some previously released art use for the Force Unleashed series of figures.

We saw some images of an unpainted version of Kotobukiya's new ART FX Boba Fett figure earlier this year at Comic Con.  Looks like this also has an expected October shipping date.

I actually found this new t-shirt design at the Base Exchange (BX) out here on the Air Force base I'm at in Korea.  I couldn't believe they actually sold some cool clothes there.  Haven't found it for sale on any websites yet, but since the BX is kind of like a military version of a  Wal-Mart or Target, I'm guessing you might be able to find one of these at one of those stores, or maybe a JC Penny's or the like.

http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm72/Sadriel_Fett_Collection/Fett%20Collection%202/DSC02922.jpg


A new snap-tite model of the Slave 1.  I'm pretty sure this is just a re-release of the older Slave 1 model they had out in the mid 90's.

A new bounty hunter hoodie on the Star Wars Shop site.  This one actually doesn't look too gawdy, either.

An honorable mention.  I'm not sure if this poster is actually available for sale, or if it was just done as a gift by artist Spencer Brinkerhoff III for the guys at the Mint in Box seller table at this year's Celebration V.  I actually found this by accident, linked to someone's Facebook page.  But it's still pretty cool.  The fact it's signed by both Fett's is even better.  If anyone can find out if these prints are for sale, please post it on here.

It's titled "The Collector."

No.  I'd have to take a pic or scan the one I got.  But it's back home on the states, right now.  And we'll be moving as soon as I'm done here in April, so it'll be a while before I'd be able to get a pic.  Most of the stickers they have in the kit, though, are the typical jAKe design Boba Fett sketch that you see around all the time.  Fett and alot of the other characters from the First trilogy (4,5,6).

Now you can dress up, or dress your kids up, as your favorite Clone Wars Mandalorian baddie...Pre Vizsla.

Looks like a slight repaint of the Jango Fett kids costume.  But, at least they got the cape right, with the Deathwatch symbol on it.

Also, they have a DarkSaber to go with the costume.

I don't know about the costume, but the DarkSaber sounds pretty neat.

In case you didn't want to spend all that money they've been asking for some of the Celebration 5 Fett posters and prints on eBay, they've just released many of them for pre-order on Star Wars Shop to ship out on 30 Sept.  They even have the one with Fett on a dewback, with Bossk tracking a hunt.  With the Jabba the Hutt flag in the background, I'm guessing they're hunting a Krayt Dragon.

http://shop.starwars.com/catalog/catego … id=1306428

These are on sale for one week only.

Enjoy.  Good hunting.

So, any good news from the Celebration?  I posted a new thread over in the Collecting Section for new items that are coming out of the Celebration.

http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/boards/t … rchandise/

I know some of the Mando Mercs who belong to the Club are going to be over there.  Was anyone else able to make it?  Anyone who's there actually have any news on things that are not merchandise related or some pics they'd like to share?

I can't believe no one's been posting anything on here about the Celebration yet.  I've just been taking a look on eBay and already there are tons of Fett items making their way on there.

http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_tr … ation+fett


Some new items, of course, that weren't publicized before, like a Disney Watch with Donald as Fett and a new Yoda and Boba Fett Celebration 5 ornament set.  Then, there are the items we all expected, whose pics and descriptions have been popping up on various Star Wars websites.  Some of the hardest to find items, apparently, are the posters and art prints that we had posted in our main Celebration 5 talk thread.

http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/boards/t … bration-v/

I'll upload and post some of the new merchandise pictures later.  But for now, take a look at that eBay link and you can get a general idea of some of the new swag coming out.

Enjoy.

Haven't seen or heard alot from the Comic Con this year, which has surprised me.  Maybe I haven't been looking hard enough this year because of lack of time.  Other than the occasional Con movie review on tv, that premiered at the Con, not much has been heard.

We've found some collectibles stuff that's premiered, but that's being followed on our thread in the Collectibles forum.

http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/boards/t … rchandise/


I did find this on Facebook today.  Pics from the Comic Con this year.  Some pretty neat Mando costumes out there this year. 

I think she got this costume idea from the guy who was selling these home made statues on eBay a year or so ago (statue pics on the link below).

http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/boards/p … 15/#p87815

Not too shabby at all.

Did anyone else make it out there this year?  If so, please feel free to share your experiences on here.  Would love to see links to your photos, if you have any.  Always some good stuff at the Cons.  Anyways, enjoy.

Wow.  Nice ink, there, AbyssGK.

Oy, I think I want to go get a Vegemite sandwich now...


I still think it's pretty neat to fight Boba Fett in the Tatooine map pack from the first game, while dressed up in the Jango Fett costume scheme.  Kind of surreal.

I'm not even going to try to put all the pics of the new Fett and Mandalorian merchandise that are starting to leak out of this year's Comic Con.  Suffice it to say, plenty of new Boba items and other Mandalorians (Pre Viszla and Shae Visla) merchandise coming out in the next year.

I really like the new 12" statues of the old classic figures.  Very nice touch.  Looks really sharp.  The Olivia Munn in Slave Leia outfit statue doesn't look half bad, either.  Cute.
