Boba Fett Outside Launch Bay at Disneyland

Published August 17, 2019 • Written by • Filed under Follow Fett

You can now find Boba Fett sometimes outside of Launch Bay at Disneyland in California.

They feature this at Disney World in Florida but have previously kept Boba Fett indoors at Disneyland... until now.

On Friday, August 16th, Boba Fett was scheduled for multiple times like normal for his indoor spot at Launch Bay. But as of the last two weeks, he is also coming or going between Star Tours and Launch Bay just like this: walking, stopping, talking like this, and moving on.

All of the lines are pre-recorded, voiced it seems by Dee Bradley Baker, who has voiced Boba Fett in Star Tours as well as multiple video games.

For more about when and where you can officially see Boba Fett, check out our Follow Fett > Costume & Props section. He's currently at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida and as you can see in our video above at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. One of the screen-used costumes is currently at the touring Star Wars Identities exhibit in Tokyo, Japan.

Have you seen Boba Fett walk around at Disneyland or Disney World? Let us know in the comments.

Published July 10, 2019Updated • Written by • Filed under Community

The 2019 San Diego Comic-Con is next week! What can you expect? See what we did just with video in 2018 and 2017, just for examples.

Here's your very own checklist to all the Boba Fett stuff we know about in advance and/or as we see it. Updated frequently.

EXCLUSIVES

Hasbro (Booth 3329) has a Black Series "Kenner" Boba Fett exclusive figure this year. It will also have a limited quantity available through Hasbro Pulse, plus other international conventions. The "bounty" on this one is $24.99 (although StarWars.com says $27, so including tax presumably).

Funko (Booth 5841) has a "Green Chrome" Boba Fett ($15), which will be a share exclusive with Amazon (not FYE), making this one slightly easier for fans to get their hands on. (UPDATE: Now available on Amazon.)

Monogram Boba Fett Bag Clips (SDCC Exclusive)
2019, Monogram
Where To Find This

Monogram (Booth 3645) has a Boba Fett Bag Clips featuring Prototype Boba, Empire Boba, and Jango for $25.

Performa (Booth 1122) has a "PerfectShaker" Boba Fett shaker for $14.99.

Fifth Sun / Design By Humans (Booth 2913-J) has several t-shirts featuring Fett: Dat Boba, Divided Forces, Kanji Bounty Hunter and Dark Side Metal ($28). All are $28 each.

Bluefin is giving away a Meisho Boba Fett pin and lanyard on Thursday, with Star Wars purchase. See their graphic on social media for additional information.

BOOTHS

Heroes & Villains (Booth 2913-K) has a new Boba Fett collection.

EFX Boba Fett Replica Helmet
2019, EFX
Where To Find This

EFX has been taking pre-orders (via BAIT) for their Boba Fett Replica Helmet, which should be shipping any day now. They'll likely have one on display at the show -- and not just a painted prototype like in past years.

EE-3 Blaster Kit
2020, ANOVOS

ANOVOS announced an EE-3 Blaster Kit earlier this year, which we confirmed in advance will be on display. We should note, however, that the company has a history of offering a lot of pre-orders and not delivering for a long, long time. (The delivery estimate was Winter 2018 for their Mandalorian Jetpack Kit, but it's yet to be delivered to those who pre-ordered.)

RockLove has a new Boba Fett pendant, likely on display at the convention.

ARTISTS

Scott Hattox (Booth 4813) has a new Boba Fett painting ready for SDCC. See his post on Facebook for what it looks like.

DKE Toys (Booth 2643) has some unique Boba Fett customs, including:

PANELS

Friday 5pm: Lucasfilm publishing panel. Who knows? It's been a while since we've had a good Boba Fett book. #JourneyToTheMandalorian, right?

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.
