6 Thoughts on The Book of Boba Fett (Review)

For the longest time, the Boba Fett movie seemed impossible. Star Wars was back, new movies were being made, and a Boba Fett feature film was always on the table. He’s one of the coolest, most instantly iconic characters in the history of science fiction. The world was clamoring for more of this dastardly, hot shot character. But a movie never happened. And instead we got seven episodes of a TV show: The Book of Boba Fett. It has come and gone and, unfortunately, did not live up to those decades of hype.

TV Show Rating: 6/10 – Pretty Good

I love The Mandalorian as much as the next person. It seemed like a silly Boba Fett knock-off at first, but then The Mandalorian came out swinging and has become a cultural touchstone the world over. And something about its success convinced those in power that the knock-off could bring back the original, and now Boba Fett has been re-established and is ready for action. Too bad that action turned out to be pretty perfunctory, with a lot more walking and standing around than badass bounty hunting. Still, at long last, we had our Boba Fett media project, and that in itself is pretty cool.

Join me after the jump for my review and thoughts on the first season of The Book of Boba Fett. Expect FULL SPOILERS for all the episodes, and what this means for The Mandalorian going forward.

6 Mandalorian LEGO Sets I Need Right Now

I am a longtime LEGO fan, and this pandemic has only helped to really push my need for something to do in quarantine. I’ve bought and built a couple different LEGO sets in lockdown so far, with a few more boxes to go whenever I’m in the mood. I even built a custom Wraith Squadron character!

But more than anything else in LEGO, I need some awesome Mandalorian sets! Like this Trouble on Tatooine set!

What, no krayt dragon?

So here’s my thinking: that Trouble on Tatooine set is clearly modeled after the first episode of season 2. There’s also the set based on episode 4 of season 1. And then there’s the general Razor Crest set, which I built earlier this winter. This all means that LEGO is making Mandalorian sets based off individual episodes…but not yet the episodes I want. I really want that highly detailed, silver-armored Mando mini-figure, but I don’t want all of that Tusken Raider accoutrement. I’m a finicky fella.

Join me after the jump for six LEGO set suggestions based off episodes of The Mandalorian!

6 Random Star Wars Characters I Want the Mandalorian to Meet

The Mandalorian TV show finally featured Ahsoka Tano in her highly anticipated cameo appearance. It was great and I loved it! This season also saw appearances from Cobb Vanth and Bo-Katan, two other Expanded Universe characters brought in from other media. As a long time Star Wars fan, I think this is a great use of the EU!

She senses much fear in you

The Mandalorian is a show where our hero, Din Djarin, and his kid sidekick, Baby Yoda, travel to different planets and help out random characters that they meet. Mostly this involved brand new original characters — which is perfectly fine — but this season has featured plenty of pre-existing Star Wars characters. I would love for that to continue and have plenty of ideas of my own for cameos!

Join me after the jump for six pre-existing Star Wars characters that I would love to see show up on The Mandalorian! Expect some SPOILERS for recent episodes. And feel free to share your own character ideas in the comments!

That Sweet Mandalorian Content You Love!

The Mandalorian is back and the first episode was great! The second episode is out today, and I’ll watch it later tonight. Can’t wait! Until then, here are a couple of cool Mandalorian things I’ve seen on the internet in the past week.

First up is this cool anime-style Mandalorian opening sequence by Malec. This thing is sweet as hell!

Heck yeah! That’s what the internet was made for: showing off the creative abilities of all us wonderful people in the world!

Next up is a cutesy Christmas short from Star Wars Kids, so it’s an official Star Wars production. It’s also in LEGO.

There’s a new LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special coming out later this month. You can check out the trailer here. It looks OK. I don’t watch the Star Wars LEGO movies and whatnot, so I don’t know if I’ll view this one.

But all of this reminds me that I still need to build that LEGO Razor Crest I bought…
