Boba Fett: Terrible. At. Everything.
DeviantART member tommyfilth refurbished an old mixer and gave it a brand new paint job inspired by the coolest (and deadest) Bounty Hunter in the galaxy. My girl has two Kitchenaids. You think she’ll mind if I turn one of them into Boba Fett?
Disney has confirmed yesterday that in addition to a new Star Wars trilogy being in the works, there could potentially be spinoff films starring single characters from the movie franchise.
Today, however, Entertainment Weekly has spilled the beans on who exactly will be getting their own films: Boba Fett and a young Han Solo.
According to the publication, the Han Solo film will cover the events between Revenge of the Sith (Episode III) and A New Hope (Episode IV). The Boba Fett film will be between either A New Hope (Episode IV) and The Empire Strikes Back (Episode V) or Empire and Return of the Jedi (Episode VI).
Sounds interesting enough. Will it be good enough for Star Wars aficionados and crirics alike? Who knows, but I’m sure as Hell going to see it.

Looks like Tony Stark took up another job in the galaxy.
This fantastic art piece is an example of the quality work coming out of the Stan Winston school of the character arts. Yes, there is a school for the special effects and design of amazing movie monsters. Stan Winston was the mastermind who brought the Alien Queen and Dinosaurs from Jurassic Park to life.
The Winston school was also responsible for the creation of the practical Iron Man suit.
If you’ve ever dreamed of doing character design or special effects, you can subscribe to the school to get step-by-step videos.
With both Lucasarts and Marvel both under the Disney hood now, maybe we will see an official cross-over of the universes. Maybe in Kingdom Hearts III… Whenever that will be.
Paint Job was done by Matthew J. Hideousboi

In case you don’t pay attention to the expanded universe, they killed off Boba Fett in the comics this week. Kind of a bummer, we know, but not as much of a bummer as the nubs who though he died in the Sarlacc Pitt.
