Oh goodness. The trivia. xD

1) Fett is actually a re-spelling of the Mandalorian word 'Vhett.' Vhett means farmer. smile This means 'Boba Fett' kinda translates to 'Bob the Farmer.' Not quite as intimidating, I think. xD

2) Boba Fett's armor has been re-imagined 6 times, yet the most commonly-used version in the comics and books is the 'Special Edition' set. This set includes the ESB helmet, paired with the RotJ armor with the gray gloves.

3) Believe it or not, Boba is rarely actually depicted in the brown gloves that he wears for most of the RotJ promotional pictures.

4) Boba Fett (And Jeremy Bulloch who played him originally) is six feet tall. Temuera Morrison, who played Boba's father, Jango, however, is only 5'7".

5) As a sort of addition to the previous fact: Jango Fett weighed more than Boba Fett, according to their Bio Stats. This was supposedly because boba concentrated more on his lean muscle to remain flexible, while Jango concentrated more on his brute strength.

6) To commemorate his well-known time as Boba Fett, The dented Helmet created and presented Jeremy Bulloch with a custom armor set of the beloved bounty hunter. Bulloch has worn it on several occasions.

7) Boba Fett actually encourages people to assume he is someone other than who he really is. So many rumors have cropped up about his past, that only a select few even know half the truth. Some of these rumors were began by none other than Fett himself.

I'll add more as I find them. <<;

Hi guys, I love Boba Fett very much obviously but I seem to take a particular liking to Jango a little bit more, it may be blasphemy to some but I feel if it wasn't for Jango there would be no Boba Fett to worship and fear.

I am requesting something of a collaboration of maybe the two in one avatar if not that is perfectly fine with me haha.

It has an embed code, but it's HTML, and not BBC. So I have no idea. xD

Absolutely! I would love to host a scheduled chat. =3 When would you like to program it?

btw, here's the HTML

<object id="99chats303002" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://static.99widgets.com/chats/swf/chat.swf?r=303002&l=www" width="550" height="250" allowscriptaccess="always"><param name="movie" value="http://static.99widgets.com/chats/swf/chat.swf?r=303002&l=www" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed src="http://static.99widgets.com/chats/swf/chat.swf?r=303002&l=www" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="550" height="250" bgcolor="#ffffff" allowscriptaccess="always"></embed></object>

I might switch over to TinyChat. I seem to be having a few issues with the 99chats window. Hm. x.x

I noticed that the chat for the site is down. I thought I'd get at least something up for us to chat live. I hope this is okay with the admin. xD

Please use your BFFC handle as your nickname. ^_^

PS: I didn't really know where else to put this, but I'd like to see a live chat for fans up and running. I'll be putting this up on Facebook as well.

You can't -buy- Boba pieces in our size. BUT, you can have them custom-made, or just make them yourself. As for oversized helmets (huge problem, actually), there are actually a few Fett helmet models that are considered as 'too small' for normal-sized Fetts which fit us tiny people just fine. Or you can even get a stock small Mando helmet, and use tools to put the dent in it yourself.

If you're going to make it yourself, I recommend checking out all the material on TDH about painting. This is also a good idea for the 'small' Fett helmet models, since they're often painted wrong anyway. ^_^ Hope this helps, even if my response is a bit later than you might like.

Father – A Poem in the Perspective of Boba Fett, by Tempest VonMerrik

Father, can you hear me?
I have done all this for you
Lost in your memory
Grasping for some truth

Father, did you know?
I would be this way
Watching you go
Drifting away

I follow your path
In honor and blood
Hunting, waiting, watching
No mercy in my wrath

Father, can you see now?
The man I’ve become
What I have allowed
And what I have done

Father, please tell me
Have I done you proud?
Or am I to be
A son, disavowed?

I’ve done all I could
To live without you
But sometimes I fear
I be not what I should

As much as I love Boba, I don't think this will ever happen. I would personally love to see more film about his history, especially about how he GOT to the top. =3 Maybe a bit about Sintas and Ailyn in there, too.

The poster's a fake. Fan-made, I think. Still a lovely job, though. xP

http://tkvonmerrik.deviantart.com/#/d50p5u4 I'm working on coloring this. It's tedious, but well worth it. xD

I like to help out when I can. And since I have a mild *cough* Fett obsession.. << I'll probably add a lot of sources when people ask. xD;

I love Jango Fett. I really do. I even resurrect him in more than one of my RP plots, and have him as a spirit in some of my fanfics. x3

My boyfriend and I have a running joke where one of my characters refers to Jango Fett as 'Shiny.' He actually refuses to call him Jango, and it's hilarious.

As for if he is worthy to be Boba's father? That, my friends, is something only Boba Fett himself should be allowed to state for certain, one way or another. Boba held his father in high esteem, according to the comics. I believe he would say that Jango was worthy, and thus, shall defend his point of view on the man.

Well.. I'm coloring him currently to work on my mouse coloring techniques, and see if I can't improve on detail. =3

Also, I'm writing at least two fanfics that have him as a main character, and he keeps popping in as a minor character out of nowhere in other things. I RP as Fett in Furcadia, so he gets in my head.. a lot.

I blame Fett/Tem for giving me an accent. If that isn't geeky, I don't know what is. e.e

"The Sarlacc found me somewhat indigestible." From Dark Empire 4.

Also, Gloom's first quote is from Sacrifice, and the second is from Bloodlines. <3

Newbie here. Didn't even know The Fett had a fan club. xD Amusing.

I've been a Fett fan since I saw him for the very first time. I was seven years old, and he just stood out to me more than anyone else. Silent, intimidating figure. Yeah. x3

I just started my Fett collection, sadly. Ah well. x3

Wanted to say hello to you all. <3
