Boussh's weapon
« on: January 15, 2006, 12:47 PM »
Here's something I've been wondering since I was a kid, and now that I'm holding the Leia Boussh figure, its fresh in my mind: What the **** is Boussh's weapon supposed to be?

I've heard it referred to as a vibro-pole and a stun baton, but that doesn't seem right. For one, a bounty hunter would probably have some sort of ranged weapon, and second, there's all that crap at the other end. Does anyone have any ideas, info, etc?

I can't comment on any of the older incarnations of the weapon, since I never was inclined to purchase a Boussh. However, for the new figure, I'm just assuming it's some weird kind of sniper rifle.

I've always assumed it was some sort of hybrid between and vibro-pole and a sniper rifle.

As for the thermal detonator, I lost that within 2 minutes of opeing the figure. ::) :-\

In the computer game Galactic Battlegrounds, Boushh does fire shots from this staff/rifle.  Take that for what it's worth.

Ed, it's a gun.  A really, really big gun.  I don't care what a video game says.  That thing's for shootin'!

Boussh once shot a man just for snorin' too loud.

I read it in my Time-Life Collection Notorious Bounty Hunters of the Outer Rim.

I figured Boussh to be the type to shoot a man in Reno,  just to watch him die.

When I was a kid seeing ROTJ for the first time.  I thought for sure that this bounty hunter (Boushh since I did not catch the name back then) was going to totally destroy Boba Fett in a ferocious fire fight free for all right in front of Jabba himself and then help rescue the rebels!!!  Yeah, then it turned out to be Leia :(

No, he's the dirty hack that shot his woman down, named Willie Lee.

Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of Dakota
There lived a bounty hunter named Boussh
And one day his woman ran off with another guy
Hit young Boussh in the eye Boussh didn't like that
He said I'm gonna get that boy
So one day he walked into town
Booked himself a room in the local saloon.

Bounty hunter Boussh checked into his room
Only to find Gideon's bible
Boussh had come equipped with a gun(ish thing)
To shoot off the legs of his rival
His rival it seems had broken his dreams
By stealing the girl of his fancy.
Her name was Magil and she called herself Lil
But everyone knew her as Nancy.
Now she and her man who called himself Dan
Were in the next room at the hoe down
Boussh burst in and grinning a grin
He said Danny boy this is a showdown
But Daniel was hot-he drew fast and shot
And Boussh collapsed in the corner.

Now the doctor came in stinking of gin
And proceeded to lie on the table
He said Boussh you met your match
And Boussh said, Doc it's only a scratch
And I'll be better I'll be better doc as soon as I am able.

Now Bounty hunter Boussh he fell back in his room
Only to find Gideon's bible
Gideon checked out and he left it no doubt
To help with good Boussh's revival.

I was wondering the same thing. I always thought it was some kinde of staff, but  I probably wrong. But if it is a gun, where is the trigger? :-\

I was just looking at Boussh, and that song kinda popped into my head...well, actually it was playing on my iPod.
