Breaking News: Boba Fett Is Dumb ^^ That about sums up the sentiments of the segment of Star Wars fans who are immune to Boba Fett's charms. Plenty more can be found. The standard line is, "he doesn't do anything" and "he got killed by a blind man". So then the question that always follows is, "why is Boba Fett so popular?" The answer surmised by the same crowd: "he has cool looking armor" so that must be why. Could that really be the only reason? No, not for me anyways. The key word is "subtlety". What can be inferred from the limited screen time he had in the OT. 1. His armor and weaponry is suggestive of something (but what could it be?) Nuff' said. 2. The Slave 1 All right. Next.. 3. "No disintegrations" That statement clearly suggests this guy is bad ass. His hands were constrained as far as engaging Han Solo & co in combat. If Vader had wanted them dead, Fett would've confronted them himself. 4. He outwits Han Solo Boba Fett was the only one who knew the Millennium Falcon was attached to the Star Destroyer. How did he figure it out? That's a special kind of experience. 5. He's not intimidated by Darth Vader [IMG]http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l226/Horhey420/Animated%20Avatars/Star%20Wars/Boba%20Fett/tumblr_nus82jU14k1sx2peuo1_500.gif[/IMG][B][B][SIZE=2][B][B][SIZE=2][B][B][SIZE=2][B][IMG]http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l226/Horhey420/Animated%20Avatars/Star%20Wars/Boba%20Fett/tumblr_nus82jU14k1sx2peuo2_500.gif[/IMG][/B][/SIZE][/B][/B][/SIZE][/B][/B][/SIZE][/B][/B] He confronts Vader and objects to his torturing of Han Solo, thinking that it might kill him. He does not fear the Dark Lord. Boba Fett: "What if he doesn't survive? He's worth a lot to me?" Darth Vader respects Boba Fett. Otherwise, he would've bullied him.
