I have to wonder about one aspect of this.  Boba Fett figured to be the central character in both this game AND the live action series, correct?  But since the Disney acquisition of Lucasfilm, it's come to light that there will be the single character focused movies.  One of those is rumored to be Boba Fett.  I wonder if Disney/Lucasfilm decided to pull the game because of possible story conflicts with a movie plot?  There's the potential for a movie to make much more for Disney/LFL than a video game.

I like how C-21 Highsinger from CW would have been in it. To bad it was cancelled. It would have greatly increased the chances of a figure of him.

Was the live-action show for certain to center on Fett?  Or was it more just "the underworld"?  I heard the latter, always hearing rumblings of Fett but never that it was a show about him.

The Fett thing for 1313 came about seemingly quickly...  I remember the poll about it pretty well still.  I personally preferred a no-name possibly tying into Fett, but at this point it sounded like a major update to Bounty Hunter and that would've sat a lot better with me than I ever thought before. 

Speaking of, still that's a game that holds up. :)

BTW that concept art is some dandy stuff...  Really gets the creative customizer juices flowing.  Stuff like that makes me interested in Star Wars toys.

EDIT:  Also, where's that Droid partner from?  I've seen that somewhere.

The Droid was in a late episode of Clone Wars, where Asajj Ventress takes up with some bounty hunters.  IIRC, Dengar wound up in the same episode (voiced by Simon Pegg, no less).

YES! Good call, and I 100% agree. We need this guy in plastic!

Those shots look super cool, IMO, i really wish this would have come out.

I missed SnTrooper's post there, but yeah that's a good figure candidate...  so are all these variation outfits for Boba too...  variation headsculpts (I guess the hair and level of scarring) would work too.  This is a game that really would've made a nice sub-line of figures like TFU got (but I think this would've been more appealing to a broader audience).

Why would Boba have different outfits? Wouldn't he have gotten his armor from his dad?

I see him kind of evolving as a hunter...  Using the helmet at first maybe but possibly making out his own identity his own gear and things.  Also I kind of figure Jango had extra or different armor and gear too for different jobs or environments...  Like his two unique jet packs I figure he has other armor and gear.

You could replace "video games" with "toys" as well.  At least you USED to be able to make that replacement.

This concept art is probably old news, but I hadn't seen it yet: http://imgur.com/a/6H8Yg

Some is new, some is old it seems.  but it's all cool.

I dig that early Fett look...  He appears to have one of Cad Bane's blasters, no?

Looking at the art, its still hard to believe they cancelled this project. My guess is the build was so, so rotten, that it wasn't worth the investment anymore.
