    That's kind of weird. Like, I don't see Boba Fett engaged in the study of Bounty Hunting 101 and annotating a manuscript for his daughter. The IU aspect is just not going to read right.

    On the other hand, I'm betting the material is the usual fantastic stuff.

    So is this like the Fett version of the Jedi Path and the Book of Sith? That could be cool... except Boba Fett ceased being an actual consistent character a long, long time ago. Here's hoping the more interesting material can be salvaged and can be brought together in an interesting way.

    And ha, I usually don't go for merchandise, but I really want that Han Solo wanted poster.

    Why would Boba carry around a Death Watch manifesto?

    Also, just Fett? I'd love some insane Spar annotations.

    Why couldn’t Bossk write it? :p He at least kept to the Bounty Hunter Creed, unlike Fett.

    Boba Fett kept a diary. The twist? It's an audio diary. Turns out the sole purpose of his helmet is so he can give convenient "captain logs" whenever he wishes.

    Sometimes he felt like that old helmet was the only one who understood him.

    sigh.

    That's the problem. I have ZERO interest at all in Bounty Hunters and the concept of Fett being all scholastic about this seems bizarre as hell, but it's also Wallace and Fry...

    sigh. FINE, I'll buy it. But grudgingly!

    No doubt it will have at least some pertinent information about Zuckuss somewhere, so I'll need to get it.

    It should be noted that the first thing I thought of when seeing this thread title is the "Pirate's Code" from the Pirates of the Caribbean MMO: no pirate is allowed to shoot or harm another living being. Just monsters.

    Surely bounty hunters have something similar.

    yeah, while i'm aware that classic Fett is sadly long dead and buried at this point, this is still a bit too weird for me. pass.

    No hunter shall refuse aid to another hunter.

    [face_laugh]

    Okay, that list makes the bounty hunters sound like a close knit boy scout club. I love it.

    so will THIS finally settle the debate of CAD BANE being a Chiss or a Duros? :p

    We all know he is truly a Croke and the Last True Sorcerer of Tund, as well as Rhand. :D

    Will buy, if just for any information it has on Mandalorians. I am upset they have info on Death Watch in there, though. Death Watch aren't bounty hunters, they're brutal murderers.

    Yeah, it doesn't really make sense that Jango would hand down a Death Watch text. Jaster Mereel's Supercommando Codex, that would make sense.

    blame TCW for that.. if Ahsoka turns bounty hunter her comments will be in there too [face_sick]

    same reason Hondo in a hunter book makes no sense.. give him a Smuggler Guide by Platt O'kefe to comment on or vice versa

    I like the sound of this. The EU these days needs more fringe, less Force.
    That last one is interesting. Presumably this "artifact" was taken when the Rebels took control of Slave I.
