Visitors are treated to a brief interview, tour diaries, and pictures of the actor chilling in his house. There's a perverse joy in seeing the guy who caught Han Solo hanging out on his couch and surfing the Web." Online and in print.

Gustavo Perez represented BFFC on a segment introducing "The Book of Boba Fett" and the existing fandom.

"[H]aving his appearance cut short, and in a way that wasn't perhaps faithful to the character that he had become in fans' minds, I think that's what created a yearning to see him return sooner or later."
