Topic: Boba Fett DIES FOR REAL!

Yes it is a sad day for fans every where. April 1st Lucas has announced that "Boba has run his coarse. He started as a character I didn't think to much of my self, but I was wrong about his potential, and fans everywhere have turned him into more then I had ever thought was possible for such a small character. So it is with sadness that I say Boba will be dieing in the next book in the legacy series. I won't tell you how but if you want to know you will have to read it for yourself this November." - Lucas speaking to Star wars insider on whats going to happen to Boba.



I knew it was coming I just didn't think it would be now. Grr.

Re: Boba Fett DIES FOR REAL!

This does have the feel of an April Fool's. But hey you never know. And Lucas has done other April Fools stuff in the past if I can recall. (Now what those are I can't remember)

Personally I hope not. sad

Re: Boba Fett DIES FOR REAL!

If Boba is dying...then dont you think it would be written by karen travis? And can you give a link to where he said this or somthing?

Re: Boba Fett DIES FOR REAL!

I don't know who's writing it but The Cover art is Dave. I'll try and find it again.

Re: Boba Fett DIES FOR REAL!

Wait Lucas usally doesn't do press stuff for the books anyway. It seems liek the authors. lucas arts people do that. Did he have one for Vector Prime and Chewbacca? Not that I recall.

Re: Boba Fett DIES FOR REAL!

AAARRGGHHH!!!! mad very angry face. ALL CAPS TO EMPHASIZE MY RAGE!!! I think it is an April Fool's joke. Remember, if you are a King Kong fan or just follow Peter Jackson's work closely, P. Jackson released concept sketches, pictures of scripts, and release dates for sequels to his remake of King Kong. And it was all a joke. So, this is on a lesser scale, and Lucas doesn't like Fett and I think he just wants to get a reaction out of the fanbase. Or, it could be real, and it would be like the time Marvel comics killed off Captain America last year. I don't know, but I certainly hope it's a joke. Seriously, of all 366 days this year he chose the one day when everyone tells jokes. I think it's false.

Re: Boba Fett DIES FOR REAL!

everybody has to go sometime...but yes, the date of this release makes this info quite spurious.

Re: Boba Fett DIES FOR REAL!

Methinks this is Alo's April fools joke, cause the 'cover art' looks like his doing, along with the photoshopped SW Blog page. Nice work Alo, I have to hand it to you. But this is a very sick joke, some of us (myself included) may hunt you down for this one, so watch your back.

Re: Boba Fett DIES FOR REAL!

good ol' April Fools. almost as bad as the Legend of Zelda movie trailer released on IGN.

Re: Boba Fett DIES FOR REAL!

I'm working as a graphic designer now, amongst other things. And if that is a professional creating that work he is grossly overpaid. That image would take less than a half hour to make I think. Plus it looks like none of the other, illustrated covers the rest of the Legacy series.

Here is all of Dave Dorman's Star Wars art.  I have a feeling that this isn't any of his work...

Re: Boba Fett DIES FOR REAL!

APRIL FOOLS!

Ok, Jokes over you guessed it. I am a good (if I do say so myself) Photoshoper and made the WHOLE thing up. Yes this means the faked quote the real blog (that I changed the words of) and the cover art all me.
So have a good laugh and "thank the maker" that this IS only a joke.

What a relief that was a joke.

Everyone should check out this movie. Too bad only chapter 1's ready.

Re: Boba Fett DIES FOR REAL!

Damn you Alo Fett!!! I have been fooled. I should have caught this, I do web design/photoshop stuff. The typo was a bad mistake now that I look closer. "Fett has run his coarse" that is spelled course. Now that I'm done being angry, I will congratulate you Alo Fett on an April Fool's joke well done.

I can use my airsoft guns to knock him out. ((Hey Alo, now you can make a bisuiness selling fake models of your scalp))

Some may run a short while, but none of them would bide.
