Best Moment

Boba Fett has had so many classic moments over the course of Star Wars history that it’s hard to narrow it all down to just one. He’s been clever and brilliant at numerous different turns, but his most cunning trick might have been following the Millennium Falcon to Could City. We found out in the prequels that Boba learned this trick from Jango, and Boba following Han and the gang to Cloud City changed the course of the story in Empire.

Worst Moment

How can you not say that Boba going out like an absolute punk isn’t his worst moment. He was one of the baddest bad asses in the galaxy, and he just rolled into the belly of a Sarlaac. It was lame, it was stupid and it’s a moment that Star Wars fans have spent the last thirty-odd years trying to retcon and forget about.


Boba Fett isn’t the main villain in Star Wars, but he’s managed to slide his way right up there with the likes of Darth Vader as one of the coolest villains in the galaxy. He’s a mercenary, which is what makes him different from Vader as Boba’s only code is what he can do for himself. That’s what makes him so cold blooded and ruthless.
