In addition to our evergreen holiday guide and our collectibles database of holiday ornaments, we wanted to share a helpful breakdown of holiday sales involving Boba Fett (Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, etc.), as started early this morning on our Twitter.
Note: most of these sales end Monday, December 2nd, so don’t miss out.
(Are we missing something cool? Let us know in the comments and we’ll update.)

Ask for the green one. It’s one of three Angry Birds Star Wars buckets includes a Boba Fett bird-ified sticker.
Part of a larger marketing campaign, there’s also a television ad running that includes Boba Fett more prominently: swapping heads with Darth Vader.

Confirmed today at New York Comic Con’s “Star Wars Rebels” panel, there will be bounty hunters in the new cartoon series slated for Summer 2014 on the Disney XD channel.
Many fans live tweeted the event, despite sub-par ability to do so from the convention venue. One of our fan informants, Anthony H., tipped us off right away. Way to go!
The storyline is set five years prior to Star Wars: A New Hope, where we saw Boba Fett added in the Special Edition (1997) release. The Underworld will also be a storyline. “Some” of the Clone Wars characters will re-appear, the public announcement noted.
Many of the creatives behind “The Clone Wars” animated series are involved, but they noted the animation style is distinctive enough that no assets (e.g. computer models) will be re-used.
While Boba Fett was not mentioned during the official announcement, and while there’s a history of inventing new characters (e.g. Cad Bane), the fans will demand Boba, and likely get the cosmic cash cow character. You can see our effort at #BringBackBoba.
Joe Johnston, the designer of Boba Fett turned director (of The Rocketeer, Captain America, and many more feature films), was also noted as the designer of a new Star Wars vehicle called the AT-DP.
The announcement also mentioned that the remaining season of “The Clone Wars” will be released. Previously, the series was shelved.
