Upcoming Bounty: Hallmark, Spencers, and WeLoveFine

Updated May 1, 2015 10:58 am • Published April 30, 2015
Written by • Filed under Collectibles

Here’s the lowdown on three officially licensed shops with Boba Fett merch coming out very soon.


According to their latest press release, Hallmark has three Boba Fett collectibles planned:

New products include Chewbacca and Boba Fett Cubeez stacking boxes, jumbo (64-ounce) Darth Vader coffee mug, Lightsaber pizza cutter with sounds, Princess Leia bottle opener with sound, and the Boba Fett apron and “Boba-que Tongs” set.

While their press release included 21 images, none of the Boba Fett items were pictured.

However, we went and tracked down one photo of the Boba Fett Cubeez that was taken three weeks ago at Amy’s Hallmark Store (Anaheim, California) by crs2499 on Instagram. Check this out!

WeLoveFine also announced a new line of apparel, specifically designed for women. Their new Boba Fett hooded tank top is already for sale and builds upon the no-longer-available design for men that came out a few years ago.

Celebration Anaheim: Exclusive Interview with Daniel Logan

We at the Boba Fett Fan Club had the pleasure of interviewing Daniel Logan (Young Boba Fett) one-on-one at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim.

Learn more about his take on Boba Fett in “Attack of the Clones” and later in “The Clone Wars,” including his conversations with George Lucas, Temuera Morrison, and Dave Filoni.

Schrodinger’s Fett: The Life and Death Paradox of Boba Fett

Published April 24, 2015
Written by • Filed under Fettpedia


During an official “Story Group” panel at the recent Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo mentioned Boba Fett only once:

“Boba Fett is both simultaneously alive and dead in the Sarlacc.”

When we first shared the quote, live from the Anaheim Convention Center, it immediately opened the door to a new term for this: Schrodinger’s Fett.

As you may already know, the more common term — Schrodinger’s cat — is used to describe a paradox, like being both simultaneously alive and dead.

What Pablo meant by the quote, as explained by further context of his point during the panel, is that Lucasfilm’s Story Group has not independently decided one way or the other that Boba Fett is alive nor dead after the fall in the Sarlacc Pit.

In fact, they cite a new book that defines the official canon.

Thanks to our friends at JediNews, we have a sneak peek at the book and, sure enough, Boba Fett is not written out as dead nor alive:

“During a fight at the Great Pit of Carkoon, Boba’s jetpack malfunctions and he falls into the mouth of the Sarlacc monster.”

Here are some shots of the book itself:





As Pablo and his fellow members of the Story Group have declared, it is simply up to a future story to define Boba Fett. Instead of filling in the timeline gaps, which was a trend in the “Expanded Universe” (now non-canon and called “Legends”), the plan moving forward is to be consistent in all storylines.

In the case of Boba Fett, we have had multiple conflicting storylines of Boba Fett escaping the Sarlacc in the Expanded Universe. We also had quotes from George Lucas himself saying Boba Fett is dead, then more recently saying Boba Fett is alive.

Now, we’re simply in limbo, presumably for just a short period of time. In the meantime, it’s time for a new hashtag: #SchrodingersFett.

Celebration Anaheim: Daniel Logan’s New Helmet

Updated April 21, 2015 2:21 pm • Published April 18, 2015
Written by • Filed under Follow Fett


One highlight of Day 3 at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim involves Young Boba Fett, Daniel Logan. This afternoon he was presented with a hand-crafted, screen-accurate Boba Fett helmet. We spoke with him after the festivities settles down — the Mercs were in the middle of a “bounty hunt.” Daniel specifically wanted a more muted look to appear more cinematic, and can’t wait to upgrade it with a servo and lights.

He graciously let us shoot some stills with him in and out of the bucket. Here’s a preview of our shoot!


The helmet was crafted by Molon Labe Studios. For the cosplayers out there, it’s Molon’s helmet, MQ-1, and dental file molds. “I installed the visor, aluminum stalk and rangefinder topper — and of course the paint up,” noted the artist on Instagram.

Celebration Anaheim: Boba Fett and Mando Cosplayers

Updated April 28, 2015 12:04 am • Published April 18, 2015
Written by • Filed under Community


So many Fetts here at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. We tracked down a few to share just with you!

We found Boba Joe Carrera, who we also interviewed for video and shot some photos. Here’s a preview of his Boba Fett!


We also snapped some photos with Mini Boba Fett!


Mike Vincent of Seattle, Washington sported a great “Empire” costume that he’s been working on for the last year.


We grabbed Josh and Niki Powers of Austin, Texas. Niki went as Fett Cheerleader and Josh, whom we’ve interviewed before, also did a video with us (coming soon!).


We’ve loved what JC Fett does with his Instagram and were glad to find him to shoot some photographs as well as a video (coming soon!).


This white prototype Boba Fett costume caught our eye. Behind the mask is first time cosplayer Paula Mulaite Clabbery of Lithuania.


Parenting done right: OZ BH-734 as Jango and Iskender as Boba of Las Vegas, Nevada.


This Pre-Pro 3 Boba Fett by Angie caught our eye while he was taking a break by the convention’s fountain courtyard. He’s a member of the Midwest Garrison 9397 and calls from Chicago, Illinois. After helping him suit up, we took some shots.


We found BH 1068 outside the main entrance for some classic, “Empire” inspired shots.


Bub Fett — the incredible Wolverine / Boba Fett mash-up cosplayer — let us snap some shots up close and personal.


We ran into “Deadland” on the first day and had to take a picture.


We pulled “Grifter” aside for some golden hour shots, including this one.


Last but not least, we came across two very cool Mando helmets. The purple one is by Natasha Cox of South Carolina and the green/red one is by Larissa Perkins of Florida.

Celebration Anaheim: Preliminary Animation of Boba Fett in “Bounty Hunter Arc”

Updated April 17, 2015 11:48 pm • Published April 17, 2015
Written by • Filed under Community


At the “Untold Clone Wars with Dave Filoni and Pablo Hidalgo” panel, we at the Boba Fett Fan Club expected Boba Fett to be mentioned regarding the final “bounty hunter arc” storyline. We were correct.

Along with a lot of “mentions” of Fett, two video clips were shared with the crowd of several thousand fans — many of whom also filmed the panel. (It’s unclear to us what the exact policy is for this, so we as a media pass holder believe it’s Fair Use and also posted our e-mail address in the embed should there be a take-down request.)

Filoni described one episode in the “bounty hunter arc” as referencing John Ford’s 1956 film, “The Searchers,” highlighting a mentor dynamic between Bane and Fett. We all were shown a clip featuring Boba Fett and Cad Bane. The preliminary animation had its final voice-over, but was not yet fully animated.

Since “The Clone Wars” is done for good, and “Rebels” is the new show for the team, Filoni and Pablo Hidalgo wondered if maybe the story would be fleshed out in a comic, especially after all of the Jango/Boba comics.

The panel went on to include a Q&A where one fan asked if Cad Bane and Boba Fett will in fact be in Star Wars Rebels. Filoni chose to only address Bane. “At present Cad Bane is not.” He went on to explain that, if it’s related to the story, it’s more of a shot. It seemed tell-tale that Filoni wasn’t mentioning Fett.

However, Filoni went on to describe in general that Boba Fett is akin to the classic Clint Eastwood western archetype. With Cad Bane, there’s some camaraderie but the two are also enemies. Filoni suggested that Bane is teaching Boba in order to learn who was better: his father Jango or him. “If Bane can teach Boba to be great like his dad, then Bane can know who’s better,” Filoni concluded.

The duo also opted to show a surprise clip, which here shows Boba Fett in full armor — a first for the show.

The clip also includes Bossk, Embo, Latts Razzi, and Count Dooku.

Boba Fett Confirmed for New “Star Wars: Battlefront” Game

Updated April 18, 2015 7:58 am • Published April 17, 2015
Written by • Filed under Games



Over two hours ahead of the big Star Wars Battlefront panel event today at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, the Associated Press already confirms it: Boba Fett is in the game, “Star Wars: Battlefront,” due later this year.

The game will reward sharpshooters with the ability to embody such iconic characters as bounty hunter Boba Fett and Sith baddie Darth Vader on the battlefield.


UPDATE The trailer includes Boba Fett!

YouTube Preview Image

UPDATE There’s a downed Star Destroyer in the background of Boba Fett’s cameo. We just saw this sort of moment in the latest “The Force Awakens” trailer. Coincidence? Could that mean that Boba Fett is alive and out of the Sarlacc in the new canon?


(Helmet nod to Crazyreyn aka Matthew Reynolds of DigitalSpy for the initial heads up.)

Celebration Anaheim: Boba Fett Trivia at Star Wars Costumes Panel

Updated April 17, 2015 11:48 pm • Published April 16, 2015
Written by • Filed under Community


The “Star Wars Costumes” panel, hosted by Brandon Alinger, just wrapped and Boba Fett made a few appearances.

When showing artwork by Ralph McQuarrie and John Mollo, Brandon mentioned how the Hoth snow trooper was an original look for #BobaFett. He’s referencing a sketch of a concept Fett wearing a big coat.

One was a nice large shot of this “Supertrooper” diagram, pictured above, which previously has only been shown very small in print and online (including on our own site). We got this photo of it, but the projector resolution prevented us from seeing how each part of the costume was labeled.

During the Q&A, one audience member asked why did Boba Fett’s costume change colors between movies? The host mentioned how Joe Johnston was involved in the book’s research process and, while Joe originally painted the gauntlets red and yellow, he doesn’t know exactly why it changed. Anyone know?

When asked about his favorite moment exploring the Lucasfilm Archives, Brandon mentioned how Boba Fett’s white prototype costume had its belt included in a belt box. Nice surprise!
