so popular among Star Wars fans?

Apparently because of Boba's "cult of personality", Fett, it would appear, cannot really be considered a minor character in Star Wars lore. Consequently, many Star Wars fans apparently consider him a must-have autograph.

Any thoughts?

In fact, interestingly, Zen Pinball even made an individual Boba Fett virtual pinball table. They didn't do that for Lando or Greedo or Jabba the Hutt, or even the Emperor. So what's with the Fett fan club?
He has:

Cool Armor, Cool Ship (Slave 1) Bounty Hunter, Not alot of lines (but are memorable) he also has all the alien chicks all over him in Jabbas palace, plus he has a jet pack.

Now this being said, the prequel movies ruined him...Made him a clone..He didn't need to have a backstory, and if you were to give him a backstory he deserves one better than basically a stormtrooper. However Lucas screwed up Vader as a kid too.
So in other words, doesn't suck to be Boba Fett!

Not to mention Jeremy Bulloch (who plays Boba Fett) is one of the nicest, fan friendly actors in all of Star Wars.

That helps.

It all started with his appearance in The Star Wars Holiday Special back in 1978, and the release of his vintage action figure back in 1979.  He appeared in a cartoon on The Star Wars Holiday Special, and his vintage action figure was initially available as a mail-away action figure.  Many fans were actually disappointed with the character when he appeared in The Empire Strikes Back.

Great info, Mike. Thanks!
