Bounty Hunters

These guys were cool. They were weird, but they were cool. Darth Vader was extremely powerful, but he turned to these creepy looking gunslingers to get his dirty work done. We loved it.

Boba Fett- Jake Gardiner

“You’re no good to me dead.” This dude spoke like three lines and immediately became a fan favorite with a cult following. His sweet armor did all the talking. His downfall was his clumsy jetpack and the bad luck of a blast hitting it. Jake’s downfall was a similar clumsiness and lack of luck. But just like Gardiner’s ability to rise again in the late stages, here is hoping that we see Fett again.

Bossk- Vincent Trocheck

This reptile bounty hunter was like Godzilla in a flight suit. He was really cool and didn’t wear shoes. But his visuals were about all we got from him. Same with Vincent Trocheck. Unlike his Trandoshan counterpart, Vincent is actually good looking. Now to get more than seven games out of him this season.

IG-88- Joel Edmundson

IG-88 was that big looming droid bounty hunter that everyone seems to remember seeing but not remember where. While we didn’t get to see the IG series of droids action until the Mandalorian, he was still really cool and threatening. You just didn’t mess with that much metal built to kill. Steady Eddy is a looming player on the ice that removes sudden urges of violence in the opposition as well.

Greedo- Sami Vatanen

Poor Greedo. He gets taken off the board in the movies before he can even get a shot off. What’s his back story? Who is going to miss him? Who knows? He was gone before he ever got a chance to really appear. Kind of like Sami Vatanen.
