This morning I showed Eva the image of the upcoming and newly announced Boba Fett figure for Disney Infinity 3.0. She immediately asked if he was Sabine’s father. She recognized the Mandalorian Armor and immediately made the connection to Sabine’s armor from Star Wars Rebels. I was so proud. While my daughter has not watched the original Star Wars or any of the movies she is a fan of Star Wars Rebels and has picked up a few bits of information here and there. We actually tried to watch Star Wars yesterday when she was home sick but my digital version is not available on any of my platforms for the TV. Strange. Back to the game, Eva suggested that when we play Disney Infinity 3.0 we should play as Boba Fett and Sabine and pretend that they are father and daughter. I like how this kid thinks. Proud geek dad moment.
I figured that Boba Fett would be joining Disney Infinity 3.0 sooner or later. I mean, how can you do Star Wars without one of the biggest fan favorites around. It looks like Boba Fett will have hand to hand combat abilities as well as ranged attacks. He better be able to use his jet pack as well. Boba Fett will be available early as part of a Limited Edition Starter pack similar to how The Hulk was available early with Disney Infinity 2.0 in a similar Starter Pack for Playstation 3 & 4. Check out the trailer for Rise Against the Empire and when you see Fett, don’t tell me you aren’t excited to play this character.
My next thought is, who’s next? Who else will we see as part of Disney Infinity 3.0 from the Star Wars Universe? Will we see General Grievous, more Jedi, Ewoks? Who? There are so many characters to choose from. Check out the full press release plus more screenshots from Rise Against the Empire Play Set featuring Boba Fett below.
