    Jango Fett Was Chosen For The Clone Template Because He Once Fought Off Six Jedi At Once

    From Redditor u/MandoFett117:

    It also has to do with the fact that during the Battle of Galidran, Fett was facing over a dozen Jedi by himself. Without any weapons other than his armor, he killed six of them. SIX. WITH HIS NOTHING BUT HIS BOOTS AND GLOVES. Tell me that doesn't qualify you for something I don't know what will.

    Boba Fett And Bossk Worked Together Until Cad Bane Came Between Them

    From Redditor u/The4thSniper:

    Bossk and Boba were allies seemingly up until the unreleased arc of The Clone Wars where Bossk sides with Cad Bane against Boba for whatever reason, so I'm guessing that's where their relationship starts to decline. The fact that as he got older, Boba would have started to rapidly outpace Bossk both in terms of skill and renown probably didn't help with their relationship.

    IG-88 Was One Of Four Exact Copies

    From Redditor u/BigBearShow:

    IG-88 was actually 1 of 4 identical assassin droids. The one we see on screen is presumably IG-88B. IG-88C or D is, presumably, seen dead in the Bespin recycling room where Chewbacca found C3-PO.

    Boba Fett Was Offered Leia For Delivering Han Solo To Jabba The Hutt

    From a former Redditor:

    During her time as a slave in Jabba’s Palace, Leia Organa was offered to Boba Fett. Fett didn’t actually care about sex in any way, so he just let her sleep on his bed.

    From Redditor u/ropcop19:

    Only input I have is that I read somewhere that 4-LOM is a joke meaning 'for love of money.'

    IG-88 has full control over the Death Star's laser during the battle in Episode VI, and was ready to turn it on the Empire’s ships had it not been destroyed by Lando.
