We've also been fortunate to have support and exclusive content from four Fetts: Jeremy Bulloch, Mark Austin, Daniel Logan, and John Morton
BFFC has been featured in print, on television, in books, and even the front page of a major website.
The Boba Fett Fan Club started on July 4, 1996 as single web page for a monthly Boba Fett e-mail newsletter called "The Hunter's Journal." After quickly gaining subscribers, its own website followed, along with working with other Boba Fett and Star Wars fan sites. It's never stopped growing, evolving, and reaching fans — new and old.
For our 20th and 21st anniversaries, we worked with Boba Fett fan and illustrator Jason Goad to come up with some designs for a charity fundraiser. You can get each design on shirts, bags, phone cases, and more only on TeePublic. All of the proceeds are donated to Jeremy Bulloch's favorite charity, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity.
We also have banners and buttons for web links.
