Boba Fett and The Mandalorian Bring New Hope to the Star Wars Universe

Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, and Yoda are household names

To meet someone who has never seen a Star Wars movie is almost impossible these days, so ubiquitous is the worldwide pop-culture phenomenon. Surprisingly, we recently met an invested pop culture collector who claimed to have achieved the feat. To have somehow avoided Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, or Yoda is akin to having always lived next door to the dairy and never tasted an ice cream. That man deserves a medal.

The Book of Boba Fett and The Mandalorian have breathed new life into Star Wars

However, even if all previous trilogies failed to peak this man’s interest, there remains hope that he may find refuge in the Mandalorian saga, or in its spin-off, The Book of Boba Fett, where Boba begins rebuilding Jabba the Hutt‘s criminal empire on Tatooine. Failing that, Disney Plus may tempt him with it’s upcoming Obi Wan Kenobi series. With the returning Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen reprising their Obi Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader roles, this one promises to be every bit as tantalising as all previous installments.

Darth Maul, Stormtroopers, and Boba Fett are among the most collectible Star Wars characters

It comes as no surprise that Lego Star Wars Games and Star Wars Action Figures are bigger than ever, with R2D2, Darth Maul, and Stormtroopers among the most collectible. Boba Fett is arguably the best long term investment. Two Boba Fett prototypes recently set a new world record, selling at auction for a whopping NZD$132,474 and $172,863 respectively! Time to stock up on Boba.

There are thousands of Star Wars collectibles released every year

Toy companies don’t make it easy for the obsessive completist. With hundreds of new variants churned out every year (and I’m just talking about The Mandalorian), fans could be excused for thinking the Star Wars Universe is infinitely unchartable. They’re probably right.
