The name Slave I is no more, long live Boba Fett’s Starship! With the release of Boba Fett’s iconic ship in its latest LEGO incarnation, you will notice that the name Slave I has been dropped in favor of Boba Fett’s Starship, as directed by Disney.
During LEGO Fan Media Days last month, CapnRex101 from Brickset.com and me asked the LEGO Star Wars team, Jens Kronvold Frederiksen (LEGO Star Wars Design Director) and Michael Lee Stockwell (LEGO Star Wars Lead Designer), about the name change as they showed us the set for the first time, and this is what they told us….
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.
What do you think of this name change?
The new 478 piece LEGO Star Wars Boba Fett’s Starship (#75312) is available from August 1st, priced at £34.99, $39.99, €39.99 with minifigures of Boba Fett and The Mandalorian.
