A lot of guys died on that Death Star, or in the case of Boba Fett, in the belly of the sarlacc where he learned a new definition of pain and suffering as he was slowly digested over a thousand years. Unless you read the novels, where he somehow lives, but that always seemed to me like a revisionist history to capitalize on a popular figure.
I like each one of these images for a different reason.
Dead Stormtrooper: So many Stormtroopers got killed in those movies, they’re basically faceless meat sacks to be filled with bullets. The skull is a nice head nod to their humanity.
Boba Fett: The last shot of “Empire” should have been the sarlacc spitting up that helmet with a skull in it so Boba could rest in peace.
The Rebel Fighter: I like to imagine this is Dack “Right now I feel like I could take on the whole Empire myself!” Ralter. Hubris killed you Dack.
Lord Vader: This is a nice tribute to how skull-like the eyes were on Vader’s mask already.
