    Nov 1, 2011, 4:55 AM - Comics Alliance disses the Fetts #1

    Check out this description of the Fett costumes from Comicsalliance.com's 21 of the Best, Worst and Weirdest Halloween Costumes For Kids

    "First of all, the fact that you can buy costumes of two of the helmeted space-jabronis of the Fett family but zero Lando Calrissians is a pretty good indicator of everything that's wrong with the Star Wars franchise. Second, the fact that a Jango Fett costume even exists at all is mystifying, mainly because it's just there for kids who can't get a Boba Fett costume.

    So deal with it, little brothers of America: You have to be the lame-*** bounty hunter who got decapitated by Samuel L. Jackson. Meanwhile, your older brother gets to be the way cooler one, who was introduced in The Star Wars Christmas Special and died when he was hit with a stick and fell into what was basically the desert's butthole.

    Incidentally, that vehement thesis you're typing up about how I'm wrong because of the Expanded Universe doesn't make these dudes suck any less."

    Funny, but still... I've spent a lot fo time and money trying to be "the cooler one," and I don't think they're showing him the proper respect! Also, I'm so happy to see "jabornis" used so casually outside of Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

    This one was pretty funny, though.

    Infant Queen Amidala: Because if there's one thing kids love to pretend, it's that they're signing trade laws and calling for votes of no confidence against the chancellor of the senate.

    Unfortunately... that's pretty accurate AND funny.
    The Fett's went out like chumps. Jango didn't really do much and Boba had one of the lamest deaths ever.
    They could have been bouncing around and yammering with Jamaican accents or doing something disappointingly lame (like killing younglings).
    The Fetts, more Boba than Jango, are cool primarily because of their amazing costumes, and also because they are kind of blank slates. Boba didn't say much and just stood around looking cool, so you could project your own personality onto him. You could make him into something you wanted him to be and connect to him on a more intimate level.
    I think that's also why Boba is still so much more popular than Jango. Jango did his own thing and was his own person.

    Also... I mean, bringing up that there are no Lando costumes is kind of silly. There aren't any Tarkin costumes either, at least not that I've seen. Lando's costume just isn't that cool to look at. It doesn't have much to do with how much a franchise values its characters and story.

    There's ALOT of backstory to both Boba and Jango than the average shmoe knows about. I have to agree with Fettistics...the critic hates himself.

    I'd rage all day long on that, but the fact is I just wanna commiserate with you guys. Just kidding, I'm still going to rant. AAARRGH, he didn't die, he ****ed that sarlacc's digestive tract like it was his job. Jabroni? He goes on to make fun of people living in the 90's. Sorry, man, got some news for you... part of the problem. >.< Lando costumes? Get with it, nobody wants to be Lando for Halloween, he just smooth talks ladies all day. News flash *** hat, I do that every day, why would I be myself for Halloween? ARGH he trolled me ;(
