Daniel Logan Getting Fitted For His Own Boba Fett Costume

Updated June 23, 2017 12:08 am • Published June 23, 2017
Written by • Filed under Community

We stopped to see Daniel Logan getting fitted for his flight suit, which is being made by Arkady Designs.

Organized by Wasted Fett, this last Saturday was the second stage where members of The Dented Helmet have been donating a screen-accurate "Empire" #BobaFett costume he can call his own.

We also spoke with Daniel about bringing Boba Fett back and how honored he would be to play him again.

Stay tuned for more in the coming months as we share with you more parts to his costume coming together!

Where to Get the Nendoroid Boba Fett

Updated June 20, 2017 2:41 pm • Published June 20, 2017
Written by • Filed under Collectibles

While the colors are not screen accurate, Nendoroid's "Empire" Boba Fett figure is starting to become available. Because the Chibi style figure is an import, tracking this down isn't all that easy, but we're here to help.

(More vendors will be added here as they become known.)

Most international shipping uses FedEx. Many of these vendors, but not all, process payments with PayPal, which generally handles currency conversion. We've normalized all prices to American Dollars, since most of our readership uses dollars.

According to the manufacturer, "please note that images shown may differ from the final product."

New Battlefront 2 Gameplay Reveals Boba Fett

Updated June 10, 2017 9:57 pm • Published June 10, 2017
Written by • Filed under Multimedia

In what appears to be leaked Star Wars Battlefront 2 gameplay footage uploaded to Vimeo this morning, we can clearly see Boba Fett make his return to the game.

Up until this point, he was rumored but not confirmed. The footage looks like the real deal but, since the gameplay is not officially supposed to be online yet, it's just not "officially" official from EA yet.

We noticed his new abilities are a scan pulse and a barrage of wrist rockets. It also looks like he might have his jetpack missile but it wasn't used. It's replaced the flamethrower. He's got the same "Return of the Jedi" colors as the prior game, Battlefront.

If you're OK with more spoilers and want to seeing him in the game, jump to 3:38 in the video below:

Thanks to BFFC fans Gilberto Lopez and Zack Valentine for the heads up.

UPDATE: EA also officially released a gameplay trailer today, which shows and now "officially" officially confirms Boba Fett.

Celebration Orlando: Guide for Boba Fett Fans

Updated April 13, 2017 7:05 pm • Published March 17, 2017
Written by • Filed under Community

[UPDATED 4/13 7:00pm PST: Bluefin added with Ronin Fett lowdown. // 4/13 10:30am PST: Funko price added for the Proto Fett Wobbler. // UPDATED 4/12 6:30pm PST: Sideshow info and some booth numbers added.]

We will be covering all four days of Star Wars Celebration Orlando (aka SWCO), live from the convention with photo and text posts.

For real-time updates, see our Facebook and Twitter feeds!

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!

ALL DAYS

SWCO Floor Plan PDF

Talent

Official Merch

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!

Sideshow Collectibles

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.

Gentle Giant

They have their giant Boba Fett bust on display, just for conventions like this. It's based on a much smaller 2003 bust.

Bluefin

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 Toys"R"Us... More details to come.
