Yesterday we mistakingly declared that a bouquet of tiny dinosaurs was the best Valentine’s Day gift—we were wrong. If you really want someone to know you love them, or you’re sorry, or you’re trying to rule the galaxy, it’s better said with a bouquet of assorted Star Wars characters.
A while ago, I called Revoltech’s Boba Fett figure the best plastic Bounty Hunter around. I might be wrong though—because Medicom has just shown up with an awesome rival figure that might just take the title for itself.
Star Wars has a noted history for creating toys out of even the most minor character, or the smallest costume change. Guy with an ice cream maker on Bespin? Action figure. Blue George Lucas? Action figure. But this Boba Fett toy being made for Comic-Con is perhaps the most bizarrely specific Star Wars toy of them all.
The only possible reason for Mario not running from Boba Fett is that Nintendo's flagship character doesn't know who he is. Then, unfortunately for him, Princess Peach's boyfriend finds out the hard way why he's the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy. Ouch.
That's the thing about Deadpool: he warps the reality of every medium he's translated to. And, in this print from Marco D'Alfonso, neither the Joes nor Deadpool has quite figured out how this crossover makes sense.
This Boba Fett Lego costume, created by Dented Helmet member CGS1 for his 6-year-old son, is one of the more technically impressive cosplays we've seen in some time.
"Boba Fett? BOBA Fett?? Where?"
Was Boba Fett a Powertech or a Mercenary? BioWare has updated its Star Wars: The Old Republic page with everything you need to know about Bounty Hunters, the class Empire players will turn to once they're done waving lightsabers around.
Darth Vader recruits everyone's favorite bounty hunter to get to the heart of the Starkiller issue in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. See Boba Fett get his marching orders in this clip from the game.
I think the video says it all. Now, how can I get this guy to follow me around at GDC?
So faithful reader TheGameCritic was at the WizardWorld Chicago, which he describes as a "comic/pop culture convention of sorts." He saw Boba Fett walking around, he saw some kids playing Guitar Hero, he got an idea and he made it happen.
