Around the time legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett tumbled into the Great Pit of Carkoon, the Rebel Alliance discovered a secure, blast-proof bounty hunter's case holding Boba Fett's personal items. For years it remained hidden away. But now all who wish may unlock the secrets held within....

I really hope Boba Fett's edition of the elaborate Star Wars franchise handbooks is as mysterious and thrilling as that pitch makes it sound. I also really hope that Kamino saberdart has heft and aesthetic authenticity to it. Like if I throw it at my friend Cornelius' head, I want to hear some legitimate distress from him when it hits.

The Bounty Hunter Code: From the Files of Boba Fett arrives inside the aforementioned case, along with buttons and a data card to unlock and trigger its built-in sound-and-light fanfare. Inside, Fett's Bounty Hunters Guild Handbook and a manifesto from the Mandalorian Death Watch are bound together to form the Code. The Handbook includes advice for new hunters from Senior Guild members, a detailed list of the tools and techniques crucial to the "crimson trade", and the basics of making a living on the margins of galactic law. Boba Fett's, Greedo's, Bossk's, and Dengar's own handwritten notes appear in the margins throughout.

The Death Watch volume, originally taken from Death Watch leader Tor Vizsla and given to Boba by his father, Jango Fett, has pages filled with Death Watch history, philosophy, and discussions of key Mandalorian gear. Commentary from Fett, the bounty hunter Aurra Sing, and the pirate Hondo Ohnaka appear in this booklet's margins as well.

Also within The Bounter Hunter Code lies a memoir from Cradossk called Making a Killing. It provides an account of his rise to the head of the Bounty Hunters Guild.

Additional Boba Fett secrets and valuables included in the set: Fett's captain's license; his arms permit; Slave I's official operating license; an Imperial wanted poster for Han Solo; and an inventory slip from the Rebel Alliance forces who discovered and seized Boba's property.
