Father's Day Gift Guide for Fett Fans

Published June 4, 2019Updated • Written by • Filed under Collectibles

Father's Day is on June 16th so, if you haven't started shopping yet, now is the time! I've recently spotted several new pieces that I think will make the men in your life who are dads and Boba Fett fans happy to add to their bounty. Let's take a look, shall we?

If you're into coordinating pieces, these new Jango Fett ("World's Best Dad") and Boba Fett ("Galaxy's Best Clone") t-shirts from BoxLunch are quite possibly the best father and son/daughter pieces I've ever seen. They're both exclusives and made of 100% cotton. The adult sized Jango shirt is $28.90 in sizes XS - XL while the toddler Boba shirt is $12.90 in sizes 2T - 5T.

Perhaps the man you're buying for prefers gift cards but you feel like throwing in a little extra something to surprise him? This new metal enamel Boba Fett pin has a classic but subtle design. And for only $7.90 at Hot Topic, you really can't go wrong!

This 100% cotton military styled jacket has a great retro theme and features a fantastic print of Boba Fett and select Bounty Hunters on the backside. The front has a more mimimalistic approach with a couple of patches and useful pockets. It can be found on shopDisney for $47.96, on sale from originally $59.95.

Beeline Creative recently branched out and created BPA-free plastic Geeki Tikis that can be used casually through the day. This Boba Fett number makes quite the statement and would be great to have by the pool or while you're barbecuing this Summer. It's only $14.90 at BoxLunch right now!

I don't know a single fan of Boba Fett who doesn't wish the character had more screen time. This t-shirt implies that Boba did indeed make it out of the Sarlacc Pit with his trusty jetpack. I'm telling you, we should all just start wearing jetpacks. Everywhere! It can be found at ThinkGeek for $21.99 and is available in sizes S - 3XL.

If you've never felt or owned a pair of Stance socks you're missing out! They're super luxurious and the designs are always outstanding. This pair features the Boba Fett sketches by Ralph McQuarrie and would make a fine addition to any Boba Fett collection. Only size medium is currently available on Stance.com, so snatch these up for $18 while they're still in stock!

Boxers. The bounty that all dads need. That's right, Stance also makes boxer briefs so they're obviously cool and comfortable. The "Bespin Tower" artwork on this particular pair is so eye-catching it's a shame you can't wear them in public! They're $28 on Stance.com and come in sizes S - XL.

From all of us here at BFFC, we hope you have a wonderful Father's Day!

"Hunter's Heart," Marvel's First Boba Fett Comic: A Predictable Yet Spot-On Gritty Western

Published May 12, 2019Updated • Written by • Filed under Collectibles

The newest Star Wars comic book, "Star Wars: Age of Rebellion - Boba Fett," is the first Boba Fett based comic since 2012. It is just a one-shot comic but, even though it is a short story, it does a good job at portraying Boba Fett.

SPOILER ALERT — Before you continue reading this review, go and pick the comic up for yourself and read it!

The story starts with a group of mercenaries roughing up someone who appears to owe the group’s leader, Zingo, when the group spots Boba Fett riding up near them. Boba’s presence immediately sparks fear among the mercenaries which is a good way to start the story off. Boba is supposed to be an intimidating and mysterious character and the comic shows that right off the bat. He has a very Clint Eastwood like attitude throughout this comic. He stays silent for most of the comic and lets his actions speak for him. At first I thought this was overkill, but after further examination I think it fit well. Boba doesn’t answer to anybody and leaves people wondering what his next action will be.

By the end of the story, Boba and Zingo have a duel with each other that involves explosives, blaster fire, and even hand to hand combat. Seeing Boba Fett get physical with his targets is something we have seen a lot of in "Legends" (previously "Expanded Universe") but not so much in "Canon." In "Legends," Boba fights both Darth Vader and Jodo Kast with an assortment of techniques while in "Canon" he only squared off with an inexperienced Luke Skywalker and ultimately lost. Boba comes out as the victor of this battle however and claims his bounty. Right at the end of the comic, we see Fett have a more cold and brutal moment. A man comes up to him and asks for his help to fight against pirates but Fett realizes that the man is wanted by the Empire and kills him right then and there simply saying, "I hunt bounties." This was a good reminder that Fett doesn’t pick sides and only follows his agenda.

The artwork by Marc Laming is beautiful. There were some truly beautiful panels in this comic. He definitely captured the gritty, western look of Boba Fett. The story by Greg Pak was well written and had some interesting characters. However, I can’t help but notice some flaws in it. The story was a really straight forward bounty hunt and didn’t have any unexpected plot twists to keep me in suspense. One thing I love about "Twin Engines of Destruction" and "Enemy of the Empire" is their unexpected plot points. You never knew what was going to happen next. This comic lacked that and stayed predictable to the end.

All in all, this was a great start at bringing Boba Fett back into the Star Wars "Canon" spotlight. The character has so much potential as proven by past legends comics. I can’t wait to see what else they have in store for future Boba Fett stories.

Celebration Chicago: Day 4 Highlights

Published April 14, 2019 • Written by • Filed under Community

The morning began with "The Mandalorian" panel. Even though the official synopsis said the story takes place after the Fetts, we appreciate all things Mando like most Fett fans.

Our friend Matt at Fantha Tracks got to run into the head honchos at Lucasfilm before they ended up on stage.

The online stream went to black as attendees got to see one of two secret videos, showing off the new show. Because the clips did not end up officially uploaded, we opted to share a still rather than cell phone video. (Many "bootleg" uploads exist on YouTube, Instagram, and elsewhere.)

In addition to revealing the show's debut poster, Lucasfilm did release four official stills:

For "The Clone Wars" panel in the afternoon, Daniel Logan was expected to be a guest, as the final season should revisit some unfinished episodes with his role as Boba Fett. But it seems like the plan changed as he wasn't on stage. (He's fine and well. Things happen. Hopefully the Fett episode airs.)

As for other Fett sightings, we caught up with Danny Haas, showing off his Boba Fett and Jango Fett pieces.

For other collectibles at the show, see our guide covering the whole event.

Celebration Chicago: Day 3 Highlights

Published April 13, 2019 • Written by • Filed under Community

Even with an overall slower news day, a lot of Fett-worthy things happened today. Here are the highlights of day three of SWCC.

The Marvel panel included a shout-out to the new Boba Fett one-shot comic, coming out in May. This was the first time seeing final artwork, after the illustrator has been non-stop sharing his B&W work on Twitter.

BFFC contributing editor Daniel Lo caught up with several artists at the Acme Archives booth, including Joey Spiotto who had a piece with Boba and Jango Fett.

The life-size LEGO Boba Fett was captured by BFFC contributing editor James Clarke.

Costume club The Dented Helmet held his member photo shoot today, which is always epic.

James also spotted two cosplayers who were clearly inspired by the recent Tamashii Nations "Ronin" series, where Boba and Jango Fett look just like this.

Celebration Chicago: Day 2 Highlights

Published April 12, 2019Updated • Written by • Filed under Community

On day two of SWCC, we spoke with EFX president Bryan Ono about their brand-new 1:1 scale
Boba Fett helmet, revealed day one of the convention. He shares inside info on the details and process.

Daniel Logan had a fun photo shoot with Funko/Loungefly, featuring their Boba Fett exclusives.

At the Hasbro panel, they announced a "Kenner" Boba Fett for their Black Series line. It will be an SDCC exclusive later this year.

Twitter user JediMoses, who shot great pics of the Hasbro panel, also found the newly unveiled display case featuring the "Kenner" Boba Fett on display:

BFFC contributing editor James Clarke found an excellent Jango Fett cosplayer:

"Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures" posters were being given out and BFFC contributing editor Dan Lo got one. You can see they include Boba Fett, so maybe he'll be getting a cameo in the animated series.

Cosplayer craftsman Wasted Fett has been making "Femme Fett" armor and JillenniumFett (Instagram) wore it today:

Celebration Chicago: Day 1 Highlights

Published April 11, 2019 • Written by • Filed under Community

Before the lines opened, EFX opened up pre-orders online for their 1:1 screen-accurate, wearable Boba Fett helmet. Sold exclusively in the U.S. through BAIT, and internationally through Amerang, the factory-made helmet is selling for $379. In person, the EFX booth had one on display. The production paint job was pretty impressive.

Many fans admired the big mural at the opening of the convention. It was nice to see Jango Fett and Boba Fett represented, although the "Empire Strikes Back" panel featured a "Return of the Jedi" Boba Fett:

Stance also revealed their Ralph McQuarrie Boba Fett socks, available at the show in limited quantities but also easily available on their website. This was a welcome change, as usually their convention-timed Boba Fett socks are exclusives, but this one is not the case.

Funko has their "Blue Chrome" Boba Fett, available through a lottery system, which fans either loved or hated. The gold version was also released at about 9pm Pacific on Box Lunch, the exclusive U.S. vendor, for just $15.

We caught up with cosplayer Bryan Curtis aka "ESB Fett" and got some fun photos and videos with him, including this GIF moment:

Even though Fett isn't expected in "The Mandalorian," we like following the fellow Mando. The logo for the show was revealed along with its November 12th release date. It will air exclusively on the new Disney+ streaming service, which will cost $6/month.

Dave Dorman (booth #2526) is a painter of some of the most well known and loved Boba Fett images and comic book covers.

Joe Corroney (booth #3116) often paints Boba Fett and Mandalorians.

Jordan Hembrough will have Star Wars-inspired Muppets, including Animal as Boba Fett at Hollywood Heroes (booth #4428).

  • Jason Christman (April 13 1:30pm - 2:30pm, April 14 1:30pm - 2:30pm, and April 15 11am - 1pm)


Funko's "Blue Chrome" Boba Fett is a Celebration exclusive, a limited edition of 2,500. See their booth (#4819) but know they have a lottery system so it might be hard to grab.

This Heroes in Action pin can be found at Booth #4834. It's a limited edition of 1,000 and it's $12 or two for $20.

This Celebration Chicago Boba Fett pin will be available from the show's own store with orders of $100 or more.

Loungefly will have an Animated Boba Fett backpack on sale for $70, based on Fett's Star Wars Holiday Special version. They're owned by Funko as of 2017, so might be represented at their booth (#4819).

Exclusives (Convention Store)


EFX (booth #2818) will be revealing its new high-quality Boba Fett helmet, for just $379. It will have an online exclusive U.S. vendor, which we'll reveal when we're allowed to share it. It's unclear if any will be available or sold at the convention, but one will be on display there at least.

Beeline Creative (booth #3319), who makes Star Wars Geeki Tikis, will have their 18 piece set on display and probably on sale. It's massive and includes a small Boba Fett in the set.

Review: Hot Toys Sixth Scale Boba Fett ("Deluxe Version")

Published March 4, 2019Updated • Written by • Filed under Collectibles

He's Worth a Lot of Money to Me

Until you hold it in your hands, it can be hard to appreciate the Boba Fett Deluxe Version Sixth Scale Figure by Hot Toys.

You can (as I did) stare at it slack-jawed online for hours, appreciating every little detail down to the paint scuffs on Boba’s helmet, or the twists in the braids over his right shoulder, or the painstakingly executed seams in the flight suit.

It all sort of feels incomplete, somehow. Even when the box arrives, it’ll feel just like any other toy.

Only when you start unpacking it and you finally see the real thing in person, will you have answered that all-important question: “Would I rather have this, or the $267 it cost?”

My take on it is: If you already crossed that mental bridge to where you’re considering it, or if you’ve already pulled the EE-3 trigger, you’re highly likely not to miss the cash once you get your mitts on this toy. That’s because of the incredible amount of detail and quality.

This is a Boba Fett figure for Boba Fett fans. Truthfully, it doesn’t really feel like a “toy.”

I mean, it certainly is one. You get that sense from the soft plastic feel of his blaster holster, the slip-on quality of his upper-body armor, and the classic execution of points of articulation—though Hot Toys boasts 30 of them, it still ultimately feels like an ultra-fancy G.I. Joe in Mandalorian armor. You might even feel OK letting a kid play with it. A really careful, trustworthy kid.

But then when you start getting into posing it, swapping out hands (one pair of fists, one pair of relaxed hands, one pair of weapon-holding hands, and a “gesturing” left hand—per costume!), changing weapons, and paying attention to all the minutiae, it truly begins to feel like a bona fide model, something that can stand with gravitas in your study or nerd cave, even if you do have the capability to whip him around through the air or just subtly articulate the neck joint forward with a dignified helmet nod.

What truly stands out about this entry in the “Movie Masterpiece Series” is the sheer amount of fanboying that was evidently done in the creation of the model. The artists are J.C. Hong and Lok Ho, and I imagine they grinned as much in the designing of this toy as I did unpacking it.

It’s the little details that keep adding up. The bits of weaponry/tools below his knee pads? Those are individual plastic pieces, painted and cut in high detail, that slide into pockets. Nearly every piece is removable for swapping between outfits — "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Pre-Pro #1" (PP1) — should you decide it’s time for Boba to do less haggling with Darth Vader and more getting dragged into the Sarlacc pit. As a staunch member of Team ESB Boba and his greener look, even I can’t deny that the PP1 getup looks great, too. Seemingly minor changes are represented between outfits, from the addable spats in the PP1 uniform to entirely different helmets (kill stripes, capes, utility/cargo pockets, and jetpacks for either costume). The alternate helmet included — red kill stripes, “eye”-style markings near the crown — is the PP1 style helmet.

Materials-wise, Sideshow Collectibles (where I purchased from) doesn’t really list the plastics involved, other than to guarantee that according to California law, they’re proven to give me cancer and cause reproductive harm. I’m already bald and I don’t want kids messing with this toy anyway. Worth it. (In all seriousness, Prop 65 is an ultra-careful plastics warning label you’ll even find on kiddies’ pool toys.)

But, to my eyes and fingers, it’s a super high-quality figure. The plastics are soft and malleable where they need to be without being fragile (thicker parts, like the thumb/fingers, which need to bend some to fit into the equally sturdy but flexible weapon holes, are a prime example). The whole thing feels relatively light, despite standing nearly a foot tall, without feeling cheap. Cloth-like capes are easy to move around Boba’s body to create a sense of dynamism where you need it, and things like his belt, gauntlets, and other accessories all move around and stay in place with no fuss.

Those many articulating joints stay firm without being difficult to move, so you can easily recreate many of Boba’s iconic poses or come up with your own. I’m partial to the two-handed carbine hold and head nod, and the PP1 example shown on the box art captures the fight with Luke nicely. And while I’ve found countless standing poses for Boba in which he can balance perfectly on his feet, there is, of course, the included stand and platform to prop him up in the event you choose a dynamic pose that’s more gravity-prone.

With dozens of hand/pose/weapon/costume configurations possible, some level of “replay-ability” is even available here. I’ve got tons of tchotchkes around my office desk, half of them Boba, and none of them compel me to tinker or play—I just like how they look. But I can easily see setting this one up within arm’s length, because of the temptation to switch things up. That’s afforded because of the incredible amount of quality variations available.

A few minor misfires I noticed include the strap on one of the blasters detached (probably a simple fix with Superglue, but still, for the price you wouldn’t expect it to simply detach so easily) and one of the two pegs from the alternate shoulder pauldron was missing, having been snapped off somewhere along the line. Little gripes, but certainly things that anyone tossing down cash would feel sore about.

However, I truly can’t find anything else major to knock about this, unless we want to consider price a prohibitive factor—and for many, it certainly will be. I would imagine fans in a deluxe figure market would expect to shell out $300 or more for “Deluxe.” It comes with a hefty price tag, and also the expectation of being worth it. All told, let’s call this one a 13-out-of-14 kill stripes rating, knocking off for those tiny trespasses.

The Boba Fett Sixth Scale Deluxe advertises as a premier item for a sixth-scale figure and delivers. This is a bounty you’ll be glad you captured.
