If you haven’t listened to this week’s RebelForce Radio, then download it now to check out an exclusive interview with Daniel Logan and Tom Kane at last weekend’s Marigold Festival in Illinois.

Logan and Kane take a stroll down memory lane, recounting stories from the set of Attack of the Clones and production for The Clone Wars.

Normally, I’d give a rundown of everything talked about, but this podcast is so informative and entertaining – you really need to listen to it for yourself.

However, if that’s not enough to intrigue you – here are some items addressed:

  • Daniel Logan talks about how he landed his first acting role, and later the part of Boba Fett, stemming from his involvement in Rugby.
  • Logan entertains fans with onset stories, including, drag racing golf carts, swinging Lightsabers and how he learned his onscreen father was decapitated.
  • Tom Kane gives insight on being a voice actor, what it takes to make it in the profession and reveals behind the scene stories from sound stages.
  • We learn a little more about the unaired sixth season of The Clone Wars
  • Mandalorian Mercs reveal a special surprise for Daniel Logan

Here’s a round-up of all the Boba Fett related news from the past week or so. This is quite a month for our favorite bounty hunter, so rather than flood you with a series of posts, here are the highlights, including more news on SDCC and Celebration exclusives!

While making an appearance at a local convention in Cedar Falls last week, actor Jeremy Bulloch was joined by a chapter of Mandalorian Mercs to brighten the day of 7-year-old Jacob Fresher, a Star Wars fan who’s been fighting cancer the last two years. Jacob got to spend an hour with one of his heroes, received autographs and picked out his own souvenirs.

Gentile Giant announced it will offer an exclusive Boba Fett Deluxe Mini Bust at this year’s Sand Diego Comic Con. The bust is based off his appearance in Return of the Jedi and comes with multiple interchangeable arms, allowing numerous poses. Available at the Gentle Giant booth, this piece limited to 2,500 pieces is available for $150.

Another San Diego Comic Con exclusive this year includes Evel Fett, a 12-inch exclusive by Retro Outlaw. A mash-up of Boba Fett and iconic stuntman Evel Knievel, this figure features a removable cape and swagger stick. It’s available for $120 and the first 150 customers will also receive a free screen print.

LEGO announced its latest product from its Star Wars line, which features a Boba Fett Minifigure Keylight. This can be attached to your keychain and shines a light from the minifigure’s feet when its chest is pressed. I’ve yet to see a prototype of this item, so it’s not quite clear how bright the light actually is – but it still makes a great addition to your LEGO Star Wars collection.

Now on retail shelves is “Star Wars Mega Models,” a guide to building four papercraft models. The projects include a TIE Fighter, Boba Fett’s helmet, a miniature Yoda and Anakin’s Lightsaber. Most stores have this book on clearance for $11.04 and it can be found near other craft related Star Wars reference titles, including LEGO minifigure encyclopedias and origami guides.
