    Sep 9, 2010, 7:03 AM - just something that has been bugging me a bit #1

    This ain't nothing special its just a small detail that i've discovered a very very very long time ago that seems to have eluded you guys for some reasons,the "spikes",as you call them,on Boba Fett's boots arent spikes at all.They are small dart sized rockets that Boba Fett most likely emplyed as diversions when he needed to get out of some perticular situations.

    At least that is my opinion on what they really are.I could easily be wrong but honestly i do'n't believe i am.

    I think this piece of reference is one reason they are referred to as "spikes". In one of the earliest introductions to him, they break down his equipment and list them as "climbing spikes". I'm not sure of the provenance of this piece (in the TDH Pre-Pro2 Gallery) and whether it is a Lucasfilm release, but that may be the origin of referring to them as such.

    @FettDad actualy there is no real evidence to my theory exept for the fact that bounty hunter aura sing wore similar boots to boba fett and on hers those "spikes" are mini rockets which she uses against jedi master plo koon in the cartoon series clone war,but then again my theory was even before that based on just basic and pure logic...something that look like that could only be one thing and thats miniature rockets because as climbing gear it would be as effective as a deck of card...and as a stabing weapon it wouldnt really do much damage


    @madmartigan well obviusly the guys that listed them as such arent very good at using any kind of logic...no offence ment to anyone...plus that thing is compleatly wrong he wears armour of mandalorian supercommando's not shocktroopers because shocktroopers are non existant,shock troopers on the other hand existed and wore compleatly different armour they were a clone army unit that was mostly stationed at corusant and served as a reinforcement for the senate guard,also doubeling as a main part of the senate police forces,and in that picture he isn't handeling a blaster rifle but a concusion granade launcher,so again no offence to anyone but that thing is just very wrong and the person who made it lacked the knowledge needed to make it as it should be...no offence ment again

    You said the clone war, did you mean "the clone wars" ?,
    becouse I can't find any scene with 1, when she got boots similar to bobas, or 2, when she fights plo koon and uses her boots ?

    Well, about the spike question... I only got the Swedish Star wars The Visual Dictionary... but I know it's in english too, becouse in my book it sais (if I translate) "Boot spikes triggered by the spring system". I don't know if I translated it 100% gramatic correct... but for me it seems like the spikes can be pushed out and be like some sort of automatic dagger or something... maybe he can climb with them too, but I allways thought their main function was to make the boots more dangerous ^^

    you ever watched season two...when aura sing sat at the table across master Plo Koon as Asoka was sneaking behind her...after a little conversation if you pay attention you can see the boots "spike" part that is almost exactly like Bobas and frankly if they were spring mounted then wouldn't be a very efficient stabbing weapon they wouldn't be very effective as they were pretty blunt,plus spring loaded climbing gear isn't something most people use...actually it doesn't really exist in the form of spring loaded spikes...main reason for this is the fact that in that kind of system the springs would be a extremely weak point that would probably fail 110000000% of the times at the very least...and don't try an argument about this as i my self am a veteran climber and mountaineer i have climbed up cliffs most people wouldn't dare to even come near...

    dude if thats the problem then i got a major solution for you,you can watch it online at www.mastertoons.com season 3 will be premiering there in a week or two i think,i watch it there always it has all episodes of season 1 season two and i think it has all the movies even the cartoon one,sometimes it bugs and says no plug in but when that happens all you gotta do is refresh the page and it works

    hope you try watching it at that site cause the site has a chat so you can chat a bit while you wait for the vid to load im a regular there the user is same as here
