Actors

Two of the actors who portrayed Boba Fett will be there: Daniel Logan (Young Boba Fett) and John Morton ("Bespin" Boba). They can be found at the Topps Star Wars Authentics booth for both autographs and photo ops. Note that Temuera Morrison (Jango Fett) had to cancel as of April 3.

Here is Daniel's current schedule each day:

  • Thursday, April 11 - photos from 2:50 to 3:30pm and autographs from 5pm to 8pm
  • Friday, April 12 - photos from 1:40 to 3:40pm and autographs from 3:30pm to 6:30pm (note an overlap, might be a typo)
  • Saturday, April 13 - photos from 11:50am to 1:50pm, autographs from 2pm to 5pm, and "Star Wars Let's Play," a video game panel from 5:30pm to 6:30pm
  • Sunday, April 14 - photos from 11:50am to 1:50pm, autographs from 2pm to 5pm, and the Clone Wars panel from 5:30pm to 6:30pm

Daniel will have his own "Prototype" Boba Fett helmet with him and it may or may not start to get autographs on it. ;)

Dee Bradley Baker and Tom Kane are two voice actors who have voiced Boba Fett, among others. They will also be at the Topps Star Wars Authentics booth.

Exclusives

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).
