At Dak’s first Star Wars convention appearance back in 1997, a young fan, maybe 11, comes to his table and asks him to sign his Boba Fett photo. You know the one. Boba’s with Vader, Lando and Lobot in the passageway outside the carbon freezing chamber. Unsure of the protocol, Dak doesn’t know how to respond to this request. Several tables to his right at an angle facing him, Jeremy Bulloch is signing. Dak tells this young fellow to go ask permission from Jeremy. “He is Boba Fett. If he says it’s okay, then I’m good to sign your photo.” Several minutes later the lad makes it to the front of Jeremy’s line; they have a brief exchange; Jeremy looks Dak’s way and gives him the thumbs-up.

I attended my first Celebration in May of 2002, Celebration II in Indianapolis, IN (that was actually the first event of that type I ever attended). I had a blast! The attendees were all so enthusiastic about Star Wars and were very friendly to me. What a place to be… all Star Wars: fun activities and panels, people in amazing costumes, great merchandise to see. From that moment, I was hooked.
According to KnoxNews in Tennessee, the Knoxville Convention Center was the site of not only AdventureCon this past weekend, but also a wedding most fans wouldn’t mind attending. The sci-fi and fantasy themed wedding of Jonathan Wollack and Rose Coe included Rebels, HALO soldiers, Mandalorians and other popular costumed characters, but also an appearance by Boba Fett — Jeremy Bulloch himself — in full armor.
