B is For...

In the continuation of the A to Z Challenge in my post today. B is for Boba Fett.

Boba Fett, the most well-known Mandalorian in ...

Who else would I choose for this letter. Boba Fett is most popular person on the Empire that is a fan favorite....well besides the dark lord Darth Vader. What is no to like about Fett. He was one of the best bounty hunters in all the galaxy hands down. Plus, what is more intimidating in a bounty hunter that does not talk, but does his job.

Boba was a clone of the famed Jango Fett. Jango taught Boba much, training him to become as skilled bounty hunter as his father-figure was before him. With all the weapon he has access to he was very skillful with the tutelage.

I do consider myself a big Star Wars fan and I learned something during this article. The way that Boba Fett died. Did you know that he did not die when he was was knocked into the mouth of the Sarlacc by Solo. He escaped due to his iron will and Mandalorian armor, he was able to fight his way out of the beast's belly, killing the Sarlacc.

Is the escape  news to you or did you know this already?

  1. Did Boba end up marrying one of the dancers from Jabbas palace? Although now that I think about it this might have just been some Fanfiction I read once upon a time

    1. I am sorry to say that I do not think Fett married on the Hutt's dancers. That is an interesting FanFic to read..:)

  2. Thanks for your comment on my blog :) I love your theme too, I'm not a huge Star Wars nerd but I love the movies (the first 3, at least) and it's fun learning things that I didn't know! Can't wait to read the rest of your posts :)

  3. Love this post! I've grown up in a family completely Star Wars obsessed. My older sister actually has a signed picture of Boba Fett by the actor himself, and her and my brother went to a Star Wars event in London and met aload of the actors and were filmed being chased by a load of storm troopers!

    Anyway, I knew that Boba Fett escaped! The perks of having a madly obsessed family!

    I'm your newest follower as I'm a fan of Star Wars and can see that your a fantasy lover as so am I :)

    Here's my B post for my Lord of the Rings theme:

  5. Thanks for feeding my inner nerd! I actually did not know that Boba Fett lived, but then again, I've never ventured too far away from the movies themselves. (The books live in a dusty corner of my humongous TBR planet.)

  7. Great post. Boba Fett is the MAN. I hate the fact that they gave him a voice in the Special Editions. He's the strong silent type.

  9. I did not know he survived! I just figured he was digested alive. That is some great info.

  10. Mandalorian armor marks him as elite
    If he's on your bounty then you know that you're beat
    Into the maw of the Sarlacc he fell, and yet
    You can't keep a clone down, at least not Boba Fett
