I can't claim to understand the Fett mystique... but for me it was love at first sight in ESB, just like the Knights of Ren. I think I am a sucker for bad boys with cool gadgets.. ahem ... Twisted Evil lol!

Well...I can understand that argument....being Kylo Ren with cute outfit, helmet, sword, shuttle, hair...ahem...where was I...

Oh Yes...but Fetts are missing that key ingredients: conflict, conscience (e.g. pull to the light) and redemeability Razz

I like bad boys too....but to like irredeemable ones would be just mazochistic...lol
@Kylo Ren

Fett's have feelings too, look at this poor baby

I never understood why so many people loved Boba Fett in the OT. He never left a memorable impression on me in the few scenes he had. Young Boba was cute though, and I felt sorry for him when he lost his father.

Jango Fett = meh

But Boba is interesting.....

1. He is not on either the side of the Empire or the Rebels.

2. Has some sense of honor towards fellow bounty hunters- is angry with Asajj Ventress for leaving him behind during one of their missions as bounty hunters but still saves her life on another occasion.

3. He isn't the slight bit afraid of Vader (very few people can boast of this)

4. He has awesome gadgets and jet pack armour.

5. He managed to escape getting killed in the sarlac pit (hinted in recent novels) which shows even a sarlac cannot get the better of him. Razz

If we go by the movies, he is mysterious but nothing great...and his "death" in the sarlac pit is hilarious...but if we look at his life in all the canon material, he is an interesting character.

I voted for "Don't give a damn." Never cared for them when I was a kid and I still don't. It's also hard for me to fathom why Boba Fett is so damn loved in spite of having five lines total in the entire OT. That said, young!Boba Fett was adorable and I did feel sorry for him when his father died.

I have never understood the obsession with Boba Fett. I think he is a pretty pointless character.  

He also seriously creeped me out in TCW.

Gahhhh!!!! I love Boba Fett!

Let me clarify though. I loved Boba Fett more before GL gave him that ridiculous backstory in AotC. Part of Boba's appeal for me was his mysteriousness. I think GL wanted to cash in on a sleeper character that was an unexpected hit among fans. He was good the way he was. He didn't need a backstory for improvement. Nothing could have been as good as what I had built up in my head around him.

On second thought, the same reason I loved Boba so much are many of the same reasons I love Reylo. It's the mystery - wondering how much each knows about the other and where their story will go.

Even if Reylo becomes canon (which I'm sure it will just as the sun will rise), I wonder if what comes to fruition will ever be as good as my headcanon. I don't count on it, but I can always hope...

I think the name is more memorable than the character.

Pretty much all I have to say on the subject.

Sadly I can't edit the poll...I think...I have a typo there that buggs me immensely.....argh....MODS!!!! HOW can I edit the poll!!!! I'm such a terrible typist Razz

You know I can partially see the appeal...if he doesn't talk...purely physical....because something tells me I'd shoot him if he ever opened his mouth....lol....
I had relationships with men like that....good ones....so I get you....
@Kylo Ren

I don't think the poll can be edited....but let me ask the admin if there is some way it can be done. Smile

This is when I wonder how people can have issues with Reylo when ships like this exist..... Evil or Very Mad

He honestly didn't even register with me when I rewatched ESB recently. So it's safe to say that his popularity baffles me.
