LEGO Star Wars: Boba Fett’s Starship

During a recent LEGO Fan Media Days, The LEGO Star Wars Team introduced the new LEGO Boba Fett’s Starship. Those that were present asked, why they were changing the name from Slave 1 to Boba Fett’s Starship? According to Jedi News, the change came directly from Disney and it should affect both merchandise and any future TV series or movies that will include Boba Fett’s Starship.

From Jedi News:

Jens: Then, the next one, also from The Mandalorian, is Boba Fett’s Starship.

Michael: Yes, I built another. We’re not calling it Slave I any more. This is Boba Fett’s Starship.

James: OK, why are we dropping the Slave I name?

Jens: Everybody is. It’s probably not something which has been announced publicly but it is just something that Disney doesn’t want to use any more.

So, whether you like the new name change or not, Disney has spoken.

  1. They can call it whatever they like. I know what it’s name really is, and I refuse to use their lazy choice.

  2. Buuuuuuull Sh..!!! Its not a change I am making. My favorite character and it is not going to be canceled unless you let them. Forever will be know as Slave 1. Thats what I will say and say to others. Let others who dont know what THE REAL name is. Enough is Enough. Man I love you disney but lately you are really just trying to make people say the heck with you. Those are the ones slending their money on your merchandise. Keep poking and people are going to leave.

  3. Really. What’s the accomplishment of this? Decades it’s been called the Slave 1 – it’s very clear that the Star Wars universe is against slavery. The clone wars and all of those movies have clearly depicted the bad guys with slavery. Very disappointed with you guys. I know myself and many others will certainly be using Slave 1 every single time i refer the Slave 1

  4. I’m all for them changing the name of Slave 1 to something else! But they could have come up with something far more creative than “Boba Fett’s Starship” IMO.

    • Curious though – why are you “all for” changing the name? Because it happens to contain the word slave?

  5. Since wars are bad, “Star Wars” is starting to sound insensitive and outdated; it’s time to change it.

    I’m telling you, this stuff never ends until it implodes on itself.

  6. It’s the name of a villain’s ship. It should evoke evil.

    I suppose next we’ll see the Death Star changed to “Papa Palp’s discotheque and glitter emporium”?

    Maybe Vader’s “Executor” will be Vader’s “Compassion and Forgiveness”?

    Seriously, stop listening to Twitter. They are not an accurate representation of the general public, and and absolutely not members of the SW fanbase. They just hunt for things they’re not involved with to hate and try to destroy. You still have time to walk this all back. Please do.

    • The truth is they did not do this move because of Twitter. The actual people who work and are in charge of Disney agree with the insane changes.
