SDCC 2018: Guide for Boba Fett Fans

Updated July 19, 2018 1:27 pm • Published July 12, 2018 • Written by • Filed under Community

The 2018 San Diego Comic-Con is coming! Like last year, we are back to cover all things.

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

Gentle Giant (Booth 3513) has a "Jumbo" sized "Return of the Jedi" Boba Fett exclusive figure this year. [UPDATE: See more photos from the floor.]

Acme Archives (Booth 5629) has multiple new pieces with Fett, two of which are convention exclusives:

Hallmark ("PopMinded Star Wars" Booth 2913) has another SDCC exclusive: a new "itty bittys" Boba Fett plush this year. It's slightly different than their 2015 release, and more like an homage to the Kenner Boba Fett colors and its original "Empire" cardback with the "fireball" art.

TALKS

Thursday, July 19

  • 11:45am: "10-Year Anniversary of Star Wars: The Clone Wars" (Room 6BCF), which may bring up Young Boba Fett, who was in the series. [UPDATE: See our post about what was revealed during this panel.]
  • 8pm: "The 501st Legion: Star Wars Villainous Costuming" (Grand 1 & 2, Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina), which will likely name-check Fett if not include a cosplayer or two; Kevin Weir (owner, Imperial Surplus Armor and KW Designs) is slated to speak, too

Friday, July 20

  • 11am: "Star Wars Collectibles" (Room 7AB), which may or may not introduce new Fett pieces from "by Anovos, Bandai, eFX, Gentle Giant Studios, Kotobukiya, Sideshow Collectibles, and a surprise panelist"
  • Noon: "Star Wars Fashion" (Room 7AB), which might cameo some Fett -- he certainly is popular on apparel nowadays
  • 1pm: "Hasbro Star Wars" (Room 7AB) and probably won't have any Fett references, but it's possible...

Other days have talks, but nothing Star Wars / Boba Fett specific in the official program.

BOOTHS

Sideshow Collectibles (Booth 1929) may have their upcoming "Mythos" Boba Fett on display, and (confirmed on Preview Night) they have their "Legendary Scale" Boba Fett available to see.

According to Sideshow, who distributes these internationally, Hot Toys has a new sixth scale Jango Fett figure coming soon.

Acme Archives (Booth 5629) has convention exclusive and convention debuting Boba Fett art (see above) plus more in their "vault."

Gentle Giant (Booth 3513) has their exclusive (see above), plus their upcoming "Collector's Gallery" Boba Fett on display, along with the Boba Fett Enamel Pin from their sister company, Gentle Giant Toys.

Hallmark already released their Boba Fett "Keepsake" ornament, which we saw previewed last year. It's not a convention exclusive and can be bought on their website and (probably) their stores.

Beast Kingdom Co. (Booth 2849) has a new Egg Attack Boba Fett. While one blog lists as a Comic-Con exclusive, it's only an advanced release here with 50 available per day. [UPDATE: See more photos from SDCC.]

Kotobukiya has their new ArtFx+ bounty hunters on display. When you buy them all, you get bonus parts to complete a Boba Fett figure.

Thinkgeek (Booth 3349) often has Boba Fett merch.

eFX (Booth 2913) has a special Star Wars booth. Their Boba Fett helmet was on display last year, but not yet for sale.

Lucasfilm (Booth 2913) might have some Fett items on display.

For more exhibitors, see SDCC's website.

FANS

NorCal_Cap, Wasted Fett, LuieBFett and BobaFettHasCollegeDebt will be in costume as Boba Fett. Wasted will be sporting his own "Holiday Special" edition, which will be especially fun to see on Saturday, along with College Debt; and NorCal will have his unique Pre-Pro Fett on Friday.

Father's Day Art for Boba Fett and Jango Fett Fans

Updated June 17, 2018 12:10 pm • Published June 16, 2018 • Written by • Filed under Multimedia

Here at the Boba Fett Fan Club, we get a lot of requests from fans this time of year for Father's Day artwork featuring Boba Fett and his father Jango Fett. Here are some highlights with annotations for where they come from:

From Our Image Gallery

"Best Dad Ever," reads a banner for Jango Fett, help up by a whole lot of Clone Troopers. This photo went viral. We don't know the artist, but would love to credit them if someone knows.

From Our Image Gallery

"I'm so glad you're home," yells Boba Fett. "So am I," replies Jango Fett. This art comes from the 2002 graphic novel simply called Jango Fett, published by Dark Horse Comics, written by Ron Marz, and illustrated by Tom Fowler.

"Jango Fett's Fathers Day" by Andrew Fraser (2013) was shared by the artist on his website.

"Jango Fett and Boba Fett Go Fishing" by Dan Picard was featured in a Wired.com article in 2015.

"Like Father Like Son" by John Alvin was a lithograph print in 2004, limited to 350 editions. The original is 19" x 27.5" in size.

"Father's Day at Jango Fett's" by Scott Hilburn (2015) was part of the "Argyle Sweater" comic strip. It features the "Mandalorian Post Office" delivering mail to Jango Fett from his clone "children." The original rendering of Jango is unique in that he's wearing Boba Fett's armor. This updated version of this strip swaps it back to his blue/silver colors.

"Thanks for being a great teacher, Dad." The official Star Wars website used to have e-cards and this was one of them.

StarWars.com did another e-card back in the day making more fun of the fact Jango is a sort of father to a whole lot of clones.

Illustrator Dan Hipp did a piece entitled "Lil' Boba Fett and Daddy Jango Fett at Disneyland." Bonus points for Jango wearing a Mace Windu shirt -- so meta.

In Robot Chicken's second Star Wars special, there's a "Father Son Dance Off," in which Boba and Jango go up against Luke and Darth. Epic.

Boba Fett's Video Blog by TresobYr (circa 2008-2009) has an episode called "Father's Day Tribute." Fun fact: after featuring the web series on BFFC, years later we ended up working with the writer to do our own web series!
