Boba Fett

Boba Fett? Where? In Your House, Thanks to Hot Toys’ New Sixth-Scale Figure

Oh, Boba Fett. The reasoning behind your popularity outside of the cool costume has always eluded me, yet like so many other Star Wars fans, I can't help but be drawn to you. That armor is that cool. Yes, you went out like a punk in Return of the Jedi, only to be saved later in the comics and novelizations that no longer count as part of the Star Wars canon, but the impression you made on a legion of admirers was so great, it seems nothing will ever break the bond. Even being retroactively turned into a clone of Jango Fett, a vastly inferior version of your own future self. When I say things like that out loud, I wonder again how it is you've managed to stay one of Star Wars' most popular characters.

It seems even Hot Toys counts itself amongst the loyalists infettuated with the bounty hunter as the company has just officially announced its second Boba Fett figure from its recently launched Star Wars figure line. Already, Hot Toys has planned a quarter-scale version of the character with a portion of Jabba the Hutt's skiff serving as the base. Teased at SDCC this past July, the sixth-scale Boba Fett also comes from the Return of the Jedi, as it will include a Sarlacc pit accessory as part of the deluxe package. There's a normal version, too, but who cares? It's all about that base.

7 Dark Horse ‘Star Wars’ Comics You Must Read Before Marvel Wipes Them Out… All Of Them

00_VaderHeader

If you listened hard when Disney announced that it had bought Lucasfilm, you could hear it: millions of expanded universe stories suddenly crying out in terror, and suddenly silenced. For the last 23 years, Dark Horse Comics has been adding to the Star Wars saga, publishing a host of comics set in that galaxy far, far away, partnering with Lucasfilm to help weave a vibrant tapestry of stories, characters and settings to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the films, books, video games, trading card games, RPG handbooks, and (ugh) Holiday Specials.

Well, no more. Starting in 2015, Disney's handing the publishing of any and all new Star Wars comics over to Marvel Comics, with an all new, optimized-for-corporate-synergy canon that will spread across all their media platforms. Anything that's not a movie (especially one of the Original Trilogy movies), or a Clone Wars cartoon, will be unceremoniously Order 66-ed out of existence, giving future filmmakers a clean-ish slate to make movies (and money) on. But what about all those Dark Horse comics? That's where we come in with 7 Dark Horse Star Wars comics you should track down before they disappear.
