Created in 1978 for the infamous Star Wars Christmas special, Boba Fett first appeared on a mission to find Han and Chewbacca on a barren planet. Fett’s looks, as well as his ability to outwit both the former smuggler and the future Jedi, wowed fans, and it wasn’t long before the character gained prominence in the Expanded Universe and became one of the most sought after figures by collectors.
His reputation as an evil villain and strategist only increased when, in 1980, Boba appeared again in The Empire Strikes Back. Hired by Darth Vader alongside other bounty hunters, Fett tricks Han and Leia into capturing the captain of the Millennium Falcon and taking him to Tatooine to sell him to Jabba.
Now part of Jabba’s court on the desert home planet of Anakin and Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett has no lines in The Return of the Jedi. Unlike the great strategist of the previous film, the bounty hunter lets Lando infiltrate the Hutt’s guard and is still easily fooled by Princess Leia when she uses a disguise to rescue Han from hibernation in Carbonite.
To make matters worse, Fett apparently dies in an undeniably stupid way: by accident, Solo hits his jetpack and, after an out-of-control flight, the imposing bounty hunter slams his face into Jabba’s ship and falls straight into the Sarlacc’s mouth.
In an absolutely triumphant return, the character, now played by Temura Morrison in the Mandalorian series, defeats stormtroopers with a gaffi stick, flamethrower, missiles, and blasters, finally justifying the great warrior status he has always had in fandom.
