SDCC 2017: Interview with Dave Dorman

Updated July 26, 2017 12:06 am • Published July 25, 2017
Written by • Filed under Fettpedia

Dave Dorman — the science fiction, horror and fantasy illustrator best known for his Star Wars artwork — was part of the original resurgence of Expanded Universe content in the 1990's, specifically with stunning and popular Boba Fett artwork.

We spoke with him about his work, why he's drawn to Fett specifically, and what he's working on right now with his own comic, Wasted Lands.

You can find more about his work on DaveDorman.com and you can follow him on Twitter at @DaveDorman. We also host a gallery of his Fett work.

We stopped by Artists Alley to profile some of our favorite Boba Fett artists:

Check out Doug Cowan (Artists Alley DD-10) for this one-of-a-kind framed 4" x 6" oil on canvas Boba Fett. Doug has other Star Wars art with Fett, too, at the booth and also available online.

The one and only Tom Hodges is doing commissions at his booth (Artists Alley GG-1) and has this cool $5 sketchbook with a bunch of his Boba Fett and Mandalorian art. Check out his Facebook page for more.

Dan Veesenmeyer (Artists Alley EE-21) also has a convention exclusive LEGO Boba Fett print. He's almost sold out of them as of Saturday morning.

We stopped by to say hello to Brian Rood, who has done many fan-favorite Boba Fett paintings over the years.

SDCC 2017: ANOVOS "Jedi" Boba Fett and "Arena" Jango Fett Jetpacks Revealed

Updated July 22, 2017 1:30 am • Published July 21, 2017
Written by • Filed under Collectibles

ANOVOS revealed a "Jedi" Boba Fett jetpack and an "Arena" Jango Fett jetpack today. (Photos above by BFFC.)

First seen at the "Star Wars Collectibles Update with Lucasfilm's Brian Merten and Dolly Ahluwalia" panel and later at the ANOVOS booth, no additional information was shared such as price or release date.

The Wookiee Gunner attended the panel and saw some additional information on these packs:

According to Art Andrews, founder of The Dented Helmet and The Replica Prop Forum, here's more info about this pack and it's history:

I can’t tell you how excited I am about this piece. I remember, years and years ago, when someone at The Dented Helmet obtained ONE generalized measurement from an original pack and how their replica was touted as the “PERFECT” pack due to that single measurement… and here we are, almost a decade later with a pack from ANOVOS that came directly from a 3D scan (thousands and thousands of very precise measurements... thanks, technology!) of the most well-known original pack (no… not the ESB.. stop it). This pack had MINIMAL cleanup meaning much of the original asymmetry and wonkiness still exist in it and is, without a doubt, as close as any of us fans are ever going to come to owning an original. Not only is the pack fantastic, but this is one of the, if not THE most precise paint job of the SE pack we have seen to date (no, I didn’t paint it)! Thanks to the opportunities afforded by ANOVOS (and one private collector), I have researched 9 original packs in person, likely more than anyone I know outside Skywalker Ranch, and after all that study, I can tell you with extreme confidence, if you want THE pack… this is the one to get.

ANOVOS also showed off a Sabine helmet. TheWookieeGunner also captured a photo of the panel slide, illustrating what's what.
