finally a thread that appeals to my sophisticated interests
...yeah tori is smoldering- that girl that used to roll w/ the hardy boys was "verrry nice"(borat voice) as well.
finally a thread that appeals to my sophisticated interests
For me it's Leon S Kennedy from Resident Evil 2 & 4.
right game, wrong character....Hunk! aka Dr. Death, anybody need a neck snapped?
shame on u ralin, even if rap appalls you- one should know thine enemy.
even the devil knows the bible
i read once somewhere that the popularity of Fett is purely visual, and i agree w/ that...but it is only half of the story. i think the "loner thing" appeals to all of us Boba fans on a psychological level- i would hazard a guess that all of us consider our selves to be the sort to be on the outside looking in.
and while as a child the visual aspect is what made me treasure my Fett figure, above all my others- as an adult, his cold nature and Clint Eastwoodian persona has kept me a fan and intrigued, heres hoping that the Tv show doesnt unravel the mystery, as the movies have already begun to do so.
interesting, TW have u ever heard any of DJ OB1 mixes?
if not ill rip one of the cds on to my computer and find a way to get in on here, but i think u might enjoy his stuff.
good luck w/ the rapping.
I plan to get a job, as well I may be going to Pennsylvania to see the mall from Dawn of the Dead...
viva la Dawn of the Dead! awesome Jesse. i would give u karma for such a thing but do not see the option.
in any case mad respect.
Endless summer- out in these parts. so i suppose ill be doing the same thing i do everynight...trying to take over the world.

"Define the Lazarus Arachnid project?" Zip asked.
"you're asking questions- that few get answers to, in time you will see". the Cardinal responded.
"So you want me to go to this Church in Colorado and oversee this...outreach experiment?" Zip was confused
Cardinal Sinisterplan sat quietly for a second, and leaned towards Zipper "Have faith my Brother"...
The Cab checked a curb, jerking Padre Malfunction, back to the now. And the "now" was getting worse and worse by the minute. according to the local am radio-the hills above moose city were crawling with mercenaries it wouldn't be long until they found the compound.
a text message chirped onto his cell.
it was from her...[ im at the mansion, hurry-Lazarus has hit the fan]
...even in this, she had kept her sense of humor,
"Hey Cabbie, Take me up to the summit" Zipper was about to step back into a nightmare and he couldn't be happier-as long as she was there.
hello regimas, is ur name an anagram or something?
anyway-very cool color scheme. how did you make the armor?
it seems the chest plate is a tad large, how did you paint it and is that camo on it?
very cool though, nice work would love to see the finished product.
the teeth r an nice touch, gotta have the trophies.
Werda, what could be added to BFFC to be more inclusive for Mando fans?
these r just thoughts...
perhaps the Fettipedia, could become the mandopedia, and people could add their own character to it.
and become more active filling out all the starwars universe characters around the mando culture.
sorta a fan character data base?
we could add a clan section. not sure what would be in it?
Re: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Discussion/SPOILERS (60 replies, posted in Film and Television)
i saw the movie tonight and had no expectations.
at the end of the movie there was a vibe in the theater like- did that just happen?
the movie entertains for a bit, nice opening w/ indy using some creative cover during an incident in a town getting bombed- but like Val said when Shia started swinging from vines like spiderman. i started cursing Lucas. and it only gets more clownish from there.
four people over sixty go over three colossal waterfalls and have hit the ground running.
harrison is the bomb though, that guy can take chicken poop and turn it into chicken salad.
but this salad tastes really stupid at the end.
worst of the four...script wise anyway.
"Have you ever been in love Padre Zip?" a priest asked him.
"Only with the Holy three", Zip replied flashing a smile. the two priests chuckled.
The priest continued, "until now, have you met the new nun that just transfered to Silent Hill Community Church?"
Zip shook his head that he hadnt. "She is...whoa, i think here name is Sister Neeva"...
Zip was jerked out of his nap by a child kicking the back of his chair, He groaned, dreaming about her was not helping. he raised his hand for the flight attendant- he needed another drink. the child kicked his chair again...Serenity now, he thought.
the child continued his assault on the back of seat.
Zip craned his head around, to plead for a reprieve- Instead the mother of said child greated him w/ a request.
"Padre would you bless my child?" she smiled.
Vengeance is mine thought Zip, as he tugged at his glove pulling it off and placed a finger on the childs forehead.
the child instantly let out an loudly audible fart, and belted out a cry.
The lady was about to speak when the pilot chirped over the intercom.
"we will be touching down in on the tarmac at Moose City state airport in 5 minutes.
"out of the frying pan..." Zip thought to himself...
Dead beer cans.
Toes in the sand.
The sound of waves crashed, normally the recipe for paradise. but not for...
name: Padre Zip Malfunction
bio: Zipper, known by his friends as Zip, has always been something of a tortured soul. When he was a child he mistook some easter egg dying tablets as candy and ate them-he was stricken w/ explosive diarrhea. but when he recovered he relized he had been cursed...for since that day-if he ever touched anyone w/ his bare hands they instantly relieved themselves in their pants. the isolation had pushed him to the brink.
Given this life sentence of isolation, he had gone into the priesthood. And taken a church in the colorado hills, but that was before the incident...
Zip groped around for another beer, his hand found his bible which was half covered in sand. He kept groping- his hand finding his cell phone...one text message: Padre Zip we need you back in Moose City- Its begun!...
...he grabbed his last beer and killed it tossing the empty alluminum into the oncoming surf. What has eight legs and no remorse? Zip grabbed his bible and shook the sand out of it...it was gonna be a hell of a week.
Harrison Ford by far. . Plus, nothing will ever beat his improv frantic "Everything's fine, we're all fine... how are you?"
i agree, w/out Harrison Ford- the original trilogy could have been really flat. Some of Harrisons improvs have been cinematic gold.
leia in ESB: "i love you"
Harrisons improv: "I know."
i think the prequels needed a scoundrel character- obi wan was sort of that role but nothing close to Solo or Lando.
but seriously....Billy Dee and Harrison.
Jeremy Bulloch nuanced performance, was incredible. his subtle movements and onscreen demeanor
are some of the reasons we r having this conversation.
I really think the figure based on the 1978 animated holiday special is really cool and I plan to get that one two. Once I get more money I am going to get some more pricey stuff.
i agree, im a fan of the "holiday" Fett for nostalgic reasons. enjoy ur figure buying.
you mean ur going to take pics of the doll in different environments or just a tight shot like the first?
either way...sounds ambitious. ill be watching
Great! Were you the one making this gif?
no i just saw it on another site, and it unsettled me so i thought id share that feeling.
is it not the creepiest thing ever?
scary face...link because if u look at it too long it will creep u out.

thanks guys, i had fun breaking it down.
i find our lack of a comic section disturbing
and yep i plan to do more-
as long as people enjoy them...
so if u read this- comment and let me know.
Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.- some smart guy
The BFFC has been long without a comic section, this thread...is the unofficial review for all comics that dropped before "Star Wars Episode2". So forget the future because life is too short not to live in the past.
the grading scale is as follows: 5 jetpack malfunctions=awesomeness, 1=not so much.
Meet oldschool Boba as no one has ever looked at him. Revel in my inane observations. Without further ado-
i give you...
"Classic Star Wars" the early adventures #9
April 1995 Darkhorse comics
Classic Star Wars "the early adventures" is a reprint of the original Boba Fett comic appearance. The original was entitled :"The Frozen World of Ota" Adventures of Luke Skywalker. This was released as a syndication in the Los Angeles Times, Aug 10 1980.
Artists Role Call:
"The Frozen World of Ota" was the last comic strip written by the legend Russ Manning who past away in 1981. When poor health forced Manning to abandon the strip, his assistant, Rick Hoberg, and inker, Alfredo Alcala. As i read the comic u can see a subtle grafting of art styles together.
The cover artwork for the comic re-release was done by none other than Kilian Plunkett.
Coloring for the Strip was done by Ray Murtaugh.
A Note about Russ Manning: This Comic legend now has an award named after him for upcoming comic artists given out at "San Diego Comic Convention" annually.
Star Wars Timeline:
This black and White Newspaper strip, later colored for this comic book, was released after the notorious "Holiday Special". This second appearance of Fett, was an attempt to capitalize on this awesome new antagonist for the alliance. By the time ESB came to theaters many Star Wars fans already new who Boba Fett was. While There is much Star Wars saturation these days back in the day this was all that the thirsty fan had.
Cover Art Dissection:
Boba Fett on a comic cover equals awesomeness, and Kilian Plunkett has long been a favorite of mine, his Star Wars credits include "Shadows of the Empire". I like the pose of Fett on the cover, a sort of menacing pose of him getting ready to fire one of his wrist weapons "...if it werent for you pesky kids" like cover.I do have a few issues with the cover though, Bobas body mass seems too large, perhaps it is Dengar inside his armor. Aside from some liberties taken with the armor and some of the colors are botched, the art done quite stylish.
Overall Grade: 3.5 jetpack malfunctions out of 5.
Boba by the numbers>
Fires a gun: 1
Calls someone a "fool": 4, 5 counting "fool hardy"
Uses kneepad weapons: 1
gives someone a lesson on Snowboarding: 1
brags about his armor and/or weapons: 4
Comic Story Summary:
The comic opens on Luke Trailing a a damaged Tie Fighter through a frozen canyon on the planet of...you guessed it "Ota". It seems Skywalker is reluctant to destroy the damaged fighter because he wants to scavenge it for parts, yes i thought it odd as well. After some questionable piloting both ships crash, Fett is introduced as the pilot of the Tie fighter, Guess the Slave1 was getting a new stereo installed.
Fett is of course tracking a bounty named only "the mole" a traitor of the empire. Fett and Skywalker are both captured by the planets primitive inhabitants "Snoogars" who basically ask them to fix their heater. Luke seems to be down with the cause but Fett cannot be inconvenienced with altruism, with Boba its always about the credits. After Boba drops some exposition about how they can escape, the odd pairing make an escape without much resistance. Of Course where Luke is Han and gang are soon to follow, and Ota is no different. Han and Chewie fall into traps of their own.
Bad A** alert!: C-3po tells off a gang of Snoogars, but wilts under pressure.
Now it is up to the unlikely pair of Boba and Luke to liberate Han and crew from Snoogars, Although Fett has other ideas. As one might assume a struggle Between the rebels on the scene and Fett ensue. After the dust clears our favorite bounty hunter has lost his query and is left at the mercy of the angry natives...Will he escape? Stay tuned.
Boba Fett insight:
In this comic Boba is both arrogant and wreckless, and many fans have said him to be out of character. One of the devices of this comic is to create a history between Fett and Solo. I find it interesting this is the second time including "The Holiday Special" that Boba and Luke worked together, im curious if this was a conscious decision by the writers? Fetts Wrist Flame Thrower seems to be his go to weapon in this comic. He is a beast in hand to hand combat, at one point taking on Luke, Han and Chewie all at once- and talking trash while doing so.
Random Story 411
-Neither the planet "Ota" and its inhabitants "Snoogars" are ever mentioned again in Star Wars EU.
-Luke Skywalkers callsign is L-5.
-Luke never takes off his flight helmet in the comic, perhaps bad hair day?
-"The Mole" looks like Rodney Dangerfield
Overall Story Grade: 2/5 jetpack malfunctions
Comic Art Assessment:
This is a unique comic to critique on account of the collaboration between the three artists, and the all three artist approach drawing Fett in a slightly different manner. Early in the comic Boba's helmet looks like a straight up bucket, while later it starts to have more menace and character to it. While the character art is simple the resemblance to the actors is tight. Action scenes in the comic are drawn pretty well, if not a little stiff. Im a big fan of older newspaper type comic strips, it seems to take my mind back to simpler times.
Overall Art grade: 4/5 jetpack malfunctions
How can you get your hands on this comic?
Well, as much as i tried i could not find the original newspaper strip but the comic reprint can be found a few places. Ebay or possibly a comic dealer. Or possibly off the Darkhorse Comic Books website.
Should you get this comic?
If you wanted this comic, you probably already own it-because it has been out for a while, but if not- I would say that story aside and a really out of character Boba Fett, there is alot to admire with the Russ Manning artwork. But alas I can't really recommend it.
Other Sources for info on this comic.
This very funny and insightful article about the original newspaper strip should be noted as well.
Final Review score: 2.5/5 JM
sort an odd coincidence that indy(harrison ford) actually did take down fett...
cujo u think u could do a cross of a Predator and a Mandalorian? Like mixing armor, weapons, etc.
no problem Fett2, the last pic has a bunch of weapons do u want him holding some of them?
do y want a mando helmet or predator mask or mix on him?
