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!
