Boba Fett by StTheo Boba Fett by StTheo

After seeing the force awakens i couldn't help but think (as he's my favourite character) were they could take Boba Fett with his own film. I would actually like to see a Fett and solo film more than individual films, i think it would build there characters in more interesting way. 

I wanted to design Fett not just an illustration, like i said before i like to add to story's and explore different ideas within the universe instead of  illustrating the character over and over again of which there are plenty of great ones.
This is my narrative driven design of Fett looking at his story of when he gets out of sarlac and how it would affective his aesthetic and thinking. 

After getting out of sarlac and getting to safety to recover he fixes and modifys his gear so something like that never happens again. He reinforced and re builds his armour whiles adding a few pieces like his greaves, he paints his armour black as a sign of his would be death and resurrection which is something he dose not want to forget. 
Adding a secondary insulating suit of soft armour, this would of helped when he was in the sarlac and would of reduced his burns from digestive acids.
He also added a 
secondary booster to his jet pack, something else he had learnt the hard way.
Luke cut his blaster in half so now he adopts a duel blaster pistol 
approach for his main ranger weapons a bit like his father did. 
Although Fett is very much as brawler in my mind over a fancy fencer like the jedi, Fett couldn't deny the usefulness of a lightsabre, so from captured lightsabers he built one into his gauntlet. This minimized the risk of self injury whilst still having a deadly and useful weapon.
(This also ties into the notion of when Fett becomes Mandlore, the leader of the Mandalorians, the Mandalor wields the dark saber which is stolen from the jedi).
The final design idea was for him to carry a tooth from the saralc, he makes into a blade for when he comes across solo again and resolve his vengeance. There is other ideas but will leave you guys to guess the rest and make your own up. 

I love the idea of Fett having a hunting dog and totally think it would fit his character of having a loyal friend which wouldn't betray him on his hunts. The dog is like a void for force users making theres powers redundent when close ie no mind control or force pushes etc. I think it would also add a lot of interesting story's to his character development.

Anyway thanks for reading and looking 
cheers

Fett already looks badass but this is on a whole other level. The black/red armour and hunting companion made me think of Walon Vau for a second, the republic commando training sergeant, but he had a strill instead of a dog. Still an awesome interpretation of the much loved bounty hunter :thumbsup:

Awesome! I love all the extra detail and gadgets (kind of like a manga-take on Mandalores). I've heard about the darksaber from the Clone Wars cartoon; it's a good fit for Fett.

This is fantastic. I totally agree and would love to see this happen.

I would imagine rather than a hunting dog he would have a sidekick, similar to Chewbacca.

maybe replace the dog with a vornskr these things are native to Myrkr and hunt using the force which means they are adept at taking down jedi. Also maybe he has a pet ysalamiri as they negate force powers entirely.
