Wait, 77? They didn't mess about. I kinda wished he'd actually used more of his suit gimmicks in the movies instead of, you know, mostly just standing around.

Even as a Star Wars fan, I never understood why nerds swooned over this guy so much. He had a track record only slightly better than the average stormtrooper, maybe two lines of dialogue, and about 15 minutes total screen time across two movies. And then he suffers an embarrassing death by getting swallowed by a giant sand anus.
He's the Darth Maul of the original trilogy.
Ummm, ackshually :wheezy exhale: if you consider the Expanded Universe material Boba Fett and the Mandolorians play a significant part in the events of the Star Wars universe, or at least they did until
I once wrote a fanfic where the Mandolorians and the Midichlorians got together and produced a race called the Mandichlorians who drove around in Deloreans.
aren't they making an entire movie around him now
That's not really fair to Darth Maul, either. Maul is the antagonist in some of the cartoons, and he's got EU garbage that's still canon.
At this point can we just pretend that the prequel movies never happened and the cartoons are the "prequels" for all intensive (and logical) purposes?
Boba Fett looks cool. That's about it. He's got that For A Few Dollars More swagger...until he gets eaten by the desert dentata dong.
As a kid, I always thought it'd be cool if the good guys just paid Fett off and had him switch sides, since he's a bounty hunter and Jabba doesn't seem to value him. That would have been MY fan fiction if I'd had the Internet.
i've only seen the star wars trilogy once, and cannot remember boba fett.
I concur with Raggamuffin. The blank slate and featureless face allows kids to project whatever stories they want on to him. Plus, he's charged with taking out Han Solo, the most swaggering guy in the universe, so it lends him a little mystique.
Wasn't he actually introduced in the train wreck Christmas Special?
