Despite not actually doing a whole lot in the movies, Boba Fett is generally considered to be one of the most popular supporting characters (if you could even call him that) in the entire Star Wars saga. Because of this there are plans to reintroduce Fett in Disney and Lucasfilm’s new batch of films, and a standalone origin story for the badass Bounty Hunter is apparently on the cards – but could we see him make his return to the galaxy far, far away as early as this year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story?
The photo above was taken at the Nuremberg ToyFair in Germany this past weekend, and as you can see, the image on display for the upcoming Rogue One LEGO set is none other than Boba Fett’s awesome looking spaceship of choice, the Slave 1.
Now, this is far from irrefutable proof that we’ll see the ship or its pilot in the actual movie of course, but from time to time this type of merchandise can be a good indication of what will be represented on screen, so perhaps this is one of those times. After all, it wouldn’t be the first instance of Fett and his team of Bounty Hunters being rumored for the film.
Tell us, do you think the iconic character will be featured in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, or is this just another tie-in set that has nothing to do with the film? Sound off in the comments section below and let us know.
