For the last 17 hours, we pranked over 1,000 visitors to BobaFett.com with this farewell page:

http://bobafett.com/theend.html

We also solicited feedback on the site, Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. Here is a select group of responses:

  • "We are all saddened by the loss of the BFFC. It had a great run. Everyday in the Summer, I would wake up and go on the BFFC. Thank you for giving us such a great site." -- Glopino
  • "I finally found a Boba Fett website and it is no more! Bad timing a guess, why was the site shut down though? If you don't mind me asking." -- Stephen
  • "I'm going to first off say I am a bit suspicious. Is this legit and Lucasfilm finally responded to you or this just an April Fools' Day gag? ... What is the meaning of this? Eh? Canadian onto something? :P" -- Sev
  • "That's surprisingly and strangely depressing..." -- Steve (via Twitter)
  • "You actually freaked me out for a sec until I went over at the Mando Mercs site, or should I say the Delta Quadrant Star Trek Costume Club. Then I realized what day it is. Good one, dude. Catch you later." -- Sadriel
  • "This has to be an April Fool's joke..." -- Rudy (via Facebook)
  • "Jeez, i almost bought that." -- Erik (via Facebook)
  • "Haha awesome!! Was that your site? I'm sorry to hear..." -- John (via Facebook)
  • "April fools?" -- Thomas (via Facebook)
  • "Nooo!!! :( So many good memories..." -- Phillip (via Facebook)
