We will be covering all four days of Star Wars Celebration Orlando (aka SWCO), live from the convention with photo and text posts.
This guide is available in advance of the convention and we will be intermittently updating it as we know more of what's confirmed, when, and where.
Besides two Boba Fett actors and two of the volunteers who help run the Boba Fett Fan Club attending, here's our preliminary guide on where to go when!
Jeremy Bulloch - The Original
Daniel Logan - Young Boba Fett
Temuera Morrison - Jango Fett and voice of Boba Fett (2005 revision onward)
Sure, you could get a Star Wars hoodie or a BB-8 as an orange... but one of the six official merchandise releases for SWCO is a Sarlacc Plush with Removable Mini Boba Fett!
Pin Trading Program
As of March 28, IGN shared an exclusive reveal of all the pins in the series. Here's the Bounty Hunter 3-Pack with Boba Fett, IG-88, and Bossk. It will be sold at the show store during the convention.
Originally, the official Celebration site showed a silhouette of yet-to-be-announced pins right now, but the image's filename clearly says Boba Fett. Whoops!
Their yet-to-be-released Premium Format Jango Fett was shown at SDCC 2016 but it's out on display at SWCO this year. (Thanks to Jaycepticon for the heads up on Wednesday afternoon.)
Cartamundi USA @ Booth 2922
They have a Ralph McQuarrie card set and a Boba Fett giveaway card on Sunday!
Star Wars Authentics
This is the new vendor for official photos, usually for autographs but also suitable for framing.
They have their giant Boba Fett bust on display, just for conventions like this. It's based on a much smaller 2003 bust.
This booth has the Ronin Jango Fett on display and what appears to be a free catalog which shows a new Ronin Prototype Boba Fett coming in July.
Funko @ Booth 3444
[UPDATE: These are going for $15.]
Funko was expected to have a convention exclusive Fett and they announced it on March 21st. It's a Funko Wobblers Prototype Boba Fett. There's also a lottery to deal with, so get in that in advance! Note that they have a limit of one of each exclusive item per person.)
There's a rumor that this will be a shared exclusive, possibly with ToysRUs... More details to come.
Artists at the Star Wars Art Show by ACME Archives
Matt Busch has a convention-exclusive print called 40 Years of Cosmic Collectibles! with Boba Fett on it in a few places. The print is huge: 3 feet by 7 feet.
Jeff Carlisle has a convention-exclusive print with Boba Fett on it.
Also: Ralph McQuarrie Archives has a table in the exhibit hall: booth 1624!
