Looks like some very nice Fett artwork can be expected at the Celebration V this year.  I especially like the one of Fett overlooking the arrival of the Falcon on Cloud City (and he even got the armor and blaster rifle correct).

Wish I could go.  Enjoy.

Yeah, it does kind of look like that, doesn't it?  I think they should have paired up Fett with a Carbonite slabbed Han.

Right on.  Pretty neat, dude. 

I'd be more than happy to get one of the Fett ones from you.  You got a PayPal account?  You wouldn't have to mail it very far.  I'm just across the Sea of Japan from you, over in Korea right now.  Let me know.

Well, I've been meaning to stick these pics up here for a while now, but keep forgetting.  I wanted to get pics of everything once my room was all set up, but when I get back from Korea we'll be moving to my new assignment, so I'll just have to set up everything again (but this time with a couple more shelves), so I'll just add those on whenever I get around to taking pics of them all.  I've been sorting some pics since I've had the time to over here and figured I'd finally add them on Photobucket.

So, hope you enjoy.

This is from my old apartment.  Not alot of room to put everything up.  Most of it stayed in storage.

And this is from our current apartment.  This hasn't been updated in a year or two, though.  I just took a bunch of pics when I had originally put the majority of it out.  Some has now been rearranged to make room for other stuff.  It's kind of like Tetris sometimes, trying to get stuff to fit on the limited shelf space and still look not tacky.  I've added quite a few more posters, statuettes, and cards (although I don't scan each card I get, I just put them all in one of those card selling displays that have Fett on them).  I also usually don't display any of the Halloween costumes, cardboard cut-outs, clothing items, or backpacks I have with Fett on them.  Just not enough room.  I still need to take pics of alot of them, anyway.  Most of those are in storage, as well, but I've been doing good of taking pics of newer clothing items, so I don't have to worry about it later.  Also, there is never enough wall space to put every poster or print you get up, so I try to only put up my favorite ones, or ones that seem to "fit" in some of the more awkward spots. 

http://s293.photobucket.com/albums/mm72 … =slideshow

Let me know if the links don't work.  I'm on the library computer and it's missing the required flashplayer to work and I don't have admin privileges to add it on the computer here.  I can't wait until my laptop gets here.  Anyway, enjoy.

I've never seen one either. Go figure you find one halfway around the world though lol.

I know this doesn't have anything to do with pics of ourselves, but since we were talking about the mailboxes, figured I post this.

http://theblotsays.blogspot.com/2010/01 … -bank.html

I had never heard of these.  Just happened to find it while looking for something else.  Kind of neat.  Surprised the Post Office never sold these.


Well, it looks like there's more than one version of the Donald of Fett pics and man, these are pricey.  Already they're making their way on to eBay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/2-DONALD-DUCK-BOBA- … 3cadd748f6


Don't know why they shifted from Pete being Boba Fett and making it Donald Duck for a lot of stuff this year.  Althoug, they still have the Pete as Boba Fett figures that are out, so who knows.

A couple more being sold separately.

Enjoy, and good hunting.


Post edit:

Just found this site.  Has a list of almost all the new Star Wars Weekends merchandise on it for sale, including the Donald print.  Looks like the prices are pretty jacked up, though, so good luck.

Is it just me or does Boba look like he has a more feminine form - small waist tongue

They did say they have a female version of the avatar out.  Haven't seen a pic of it yet, though.

Sweet.  I saw the Vader and Stormtrooper ones on Entertainment Earth and was thinking it'd be neat if they did a Boba version.

Nah, the mailbox is in the American Post office on base.  Although, I'm sure there are plenty of fans out this way, too.

Can't believe I had to go to the other side of the world before I finally found one of these things.  They actually have one at the Postal Service Center at Osan Air Base in South Korea.


Some nice new Fett merchandise coming out for the 2010 Disney Star Wars Weekends this year.

http://www.starwars.com/fans/events/sta … index.html

Created by Disney Sketch Artist, Jason Zucker, this amazing full-color sketch features Donald as bounty hunter Boba Fett and was created to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back and to pay homage to the notorious character and bounty hunter Boba Fett. It's the first time a full-color sketch has been done completely by hand for Star Wars Weekends. This complex and intriguing art is a limited edition of 30.


Another first for Star Wars Weekends is the Passholder Exclusive T-Shirt. Last year marked the first year that Disney Theme Park Merchandise offered a Passholder Exclusive, Star Wars Weekends Pin. The response was so overwhelming we decided to give our Passholders something more to celebrate this year with a special shirt created just for them! Remember, you need to show your Passholder ID to purchase the shirt.


Disney Star Wars Action Figures Series 4
This is the fourth series of articulated Disney characters "dressed as" Star Wars characters action figures. Each figure is packed individually and retails for $8.95. Available in May, 2010.


There will also be a set of six different scene pins offered separately or together, with a packaged and framed sets including "completer" AT-AT/snowspeeder and Yoda 30th pins.


As well as a jumbo sized 30th Anniversary pin.


There is a set of Disney Vinylmation character pins that come with "Chaser" collector pins.  One such pin is of Boba Fett, if you're lucky enough to find him.


There is also a limited edition boxed set of pins that include characters and their spaceships, which includes pin #77463--Boba Fett and Slave I.


A Star Wars symbols pin set that includes the Mandalorian Skull symbol.


There is a Boba Fett vs Mickey color pin. 


They also have a t-shirt, poster, a tapestry throw blanket, and a silver plated collector's card (limited to 250 cards) with the same "Disney Star Wars Weekends 2010" theme image of Boba vs Jedi Mickey on them, as well. 

Definitely time for a vacation to Disneyworld this year, I'd say.  Good hunting.

I'm surprised no one has posted on this yet, since I've seen a few of the members on here with the new Avatar on their Xbox Live profile.

Looks like Microsoft is helping to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Empire Strikes back with some new Avatars for your Xbox Live profile.  We finally, finally will get a proper Boba Fett avatar.  You can use Microsoft points to either just purchase Boba's helmet, or you can purchase his entire Mandalorian armor for a few points more.

Also, over on Star Wars.com

http://www.starwars.com/games/news/esb3 … index.html

It says is this article that they also have female variants of some of the avatar's.  I'm interested in seeing what the female version of the Fett armor looks like.

Yeah, I've been waiting a while for that one myself.

Yeah, Lucas is definitely milking the appeal of Fett and Mandalorians for the Empire Strikes Back anniversary.

Oya, Mando'ade!!!

Looks like the Galen Marek in Bounty Hunter disguise, mentioned above, isn't just coming with a set of Mandalorian armor like in his Toy Fair pics.

http://www.starwars.com/img/vault/colle … /excl8.jpg

Looks like the battle pack actually has him with a Mando helmet, as well.  Don't remember that as part of the game, but hey, I'm not arguing.  Nice little get up, I must say.



Looks like Jeremy Bulloch will be available for some autographs of the Celebration 5 booths, as well as one other surprise Fett actor in his first time Con appearance.

The jetski thing was kind of weird, but it is Florida, I suppose.  I guess Fett's got jets in more than just his backpack, huh?

I guess $50 ain't too bad.  Still a little steep than what I paid for mine, but that was before one of the Hildebrandt brothers (who did the artwork) actually died, so you have to take that into account.  It's a pretty decent size art print, too.  It's a couple feet high and really crisp.

It's kind of like a pop-up version of the Boba Fett vs IG-88 comic book that came in the Boba Fett/ IG-88 two-pack of action figures as part of the Shadows of the Empire line.  It's not super collectible, so I say open it and actually enjoy it, you know?  But, if you've ever read the little comic book that came with those figures 2-pack, it's pretty much the same story. 

It's about IG-88's ambush of Boba Fett as he comes out of Hyperspace around Tattooine.  Fett ends up taking out two more of the four IG-88 droids.  The third he took out on Cloud City--you can actually see it's body leaning up against the furnace when Chewbacca is saving 3PO--the other one transferred it's consciousness into the Death Star II computer core; according to the Tales of the Bounty Hunters book. 

Hope that helps.  Have fun.

They should do one of Tag and Bink.  That would be pretty sweet.

I can't find any pics online yet, but I picked up a Star Wars Easter Egg coloring kit today at Target that has some Boba Fett stuff with it.  Some of them come with a Boba Fett collector's card and each comes with SW characters, included our Boba, that you can put on your Easter Egg's this year.  Figured I'd give you a heads up, in case you were interested.

Did anyone catch the Boba Fett commercial snippet during the Clone Wars tonight.  At least he still has Jango's helmet.  Maybe we'll see him wearing it in the upcoming episode.  Cross your fingers.


Also, did you notice the female bounty hunter in tongiht's episode holding a very familiar blaster rifle.  Very nice lead-in and a nice nod to "The Seven Samurai."

Also, check out who else is working with Fett in the new episode:  http://www.starwars.com/fans/events/new … index.html

Looks like they're going to be at WonderCon this year.  I think I'd go just to meet Jamie King (voice of Aurra Sing).  Very nice.
