Rebelscum.com reported exciting news by posting photos of more Disney exclusive Star Wars/Disney mash-up merchandise. These will be available at Disney Parks by the end of May.
Chris Wyman shared photos of the “Sarlacc Attack” set, which features Goofy as Chewbacca, Donald Duck as Han Solo, Minnie Mouse as Leia, Mickey Mouse as Luke Skywalker and Pete as Boba Fett – keeping true to past mash-ups Disney released in the past.

Eric Geller of ForceCast.net posted an article on RebelScum.com that a source close to Lucasfilm confirmed the “bonus material” said to be released for The Clone Wars will consist of two story arcs, which were planned for the season six.
He also reported there was a story arc including Boba Fett plotted for season six, which we will never see. According to Geller’s source, the story arc would have wrapped up the stories for Cad Bane and Aurra Sing.
This is highly disappointing, to say the least. It would have been exciting to see an older Boba Fett interact with Cad Bane and resolve lingering issues with Aurra Sing. We got to see the dynamic between these three bounty hunters in previous seasons.
Sing was a mentor to young Boba Fett in season two, and it was eluded that Bane provided the same role for Boba while imprisoned together. It would have been more than interesting to see how the dynamic would have changed the next time these three ran into each other.
Since those earlier seasons, young Boba Fett had risen to become a leader of his own little bounty hunter gang. No longer green behind the ears, would he had “fallen in line” when reunited with Sing? Would he have clashed with Bane? In fact, would Bane or Sing’s fate been at the hands of Boba, himself?
All we know for sure is Boba Fett was going to get his Mandalorian armor in season six. We also know Hondo was in possession of Slave I – newly outfitted and repainted in the color schemes we see in Empire Strikes Back. Lastly, we know planet Mandalore had fallen.
Boba Fett had evolved greatly over the episodes he showed up in. This last arc would have, in theory, fulfilled the final step in his character’s development, making him into the cold, calculating bounty hunter we saw in Empire.
Will his storyline be totally scrapped now that Disney is obviously trying to move past the prequel era in hyperdrive?
The bitter truth is, the only way we may receive the answers we’re looking for is; a) the #SaveTheCloneWars campaign works; b) the long-rumored Star Wars: Underworld project gets off the ground; c) through a standalone animated feature or live-action film.
There’s also a great disappointment for toy collectors. As reported earlier this year, the Hasbro line of Clone Wars toys is not longer being produced. Otherwise, this season could have produced a Boba Fett figure in Mandalorian armor, sculpted in the style of The Clone Wars.

Rebelscum.com has posted pictures from the 2013 NYC Toy Fair, which show the second wave of Angry Birds Star Wars merchandise. This wave features the Boba Fett Pig, which we got a sneak peak at earlier this year. The toy fair showed Hasbro releasing this character in its line of Power Battlers and Mystery Bag collectibles. The colors and details on Power Battler Boba Fett appears to be greater than the smaller figure found in the mystery bags, but its exciting to finally see Fett introduced to this series. With Rovio releasing new levels to the mobile game, this merchandise hints that Boba Fett may just make an appearance very soon.
