When Boba Fett burst onto the scene in The Empire Strikes Back, he immediately became a fan favorite. Fans gravitated to him because he had an extremely cool look, wearing battle-scarred armor with a sweet looking helmet and he even had a jet pack. When Darth Vader specifically pointed him out and said: “No disintegrations” we all knew this bounty hunter stood out from the rest and was a badass no one should mess with.
When The Millennium Falcon detaches from Vader’s star destroyer and floats away with the garbage, we see Fett is even cooler than we first thought, because he is flying one of the sweetest looking ships in the galaxy.
Fett’s ship the Slave I was the first vertical flying ship we saw in Star Wars. The ship, like it’s owner, is riddled with battle scars and we immediately know this ship has been in a skirmish or two. Slave I features a large oval-shaped cockpit with two stubby little wings coming out the sides. It has a large circular landing pad that comes out around the back of the vessel kind of making it resemble an iron.
Slave I is an unforgettable looking ship and is mysterious and unique just like the man who flew it.
