    Hi Everyone,
    If any of you have been asked to do any LFL Events you realize that most time you have to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement and promise not reveal anything until generally "after the fact." In March of this year I was selected by LFL to represent ESB Fett with one of their licensee's product merchandising campaigns. It was funny they wouldn't tell me who the licensee was or what I was to do other than "consultant" them on products they were going to release in the Fall/Wall.
    On 03/24/10 I was advised to report with my ESB Fett to the photo studio. When I arrived I was surprised to be informed by the photo studio and the licensee (Adiddas) that LFL had told them I was the resident ESB Fett advisor on the photo shoot.
    The shoot went all day and everyone was interested in my input on their Fett shoes, sweatshirts, zip up and clothing. I recommended a few changes which they corrected and a few others they hadn't changed when these photos were released. My comments were the kill strip colors(should be yell/orange not orange) and on the sweater the fact that Bounty Hunter is not needed.
    Included on these photos are my bucket, cape, knees, gauntlets, blaster, jett pack and everything Fett. One funny thing was the fact that they decided NOT to utilize some of the props they had on hand such as an MR ESB helmet with a ROTJ blaster, and other mix-match items that were suppose to be an ESB Fett. Adidas and the studio listened on this, and several other photo shoots and are trying to get it correct. Hope you enjoy and can get your hands on some of this limited edition merchandise.

    all of those shoes and the jacket are absolutely hideous.
    Congrats on getting the gig, but the product line is horrendous.

    That is a VERY strange line (although I do like the Fett shoes), but congrats on the pics! Always cool to be involved in something official!

    So was the upside down knee an ESB nod or just arranged that way by accident?

    It is all in the contrast of the knee drawing out the colors on the shoes and not leaving "holes" in the framing that an upright knee might exhibit. It is all part of the creative license that the photographer/licensee can take. Just like the filming of the "bonus scenes" on Episode IV that gave us the SE Fett.

    Is it just me or do those 3PO-R2 shoes look like those hideous shoes that they rent at the bowling alley?

    These shoes are pretty bad. Boba Fett is the best (not because I'm a fan). I mean colour them gold = c3p0 . Grey = hansolo. green = Jabba. How much are they increasing the price for a simple shoe. People have to realize just because it's star wars or boba fett doesn't make it nice or cool. Unless you're trying to buy EVERY single product ever made on fett!
