Wait so did Disney do something about the name?
That would be weird seeing as theres a whole plot in TCW about slavers/ slavery. So its not like they wont touch the subject.
On a children's toy aimed at young kids, they put "boba Fett's starship" instead of "slave I" and people are freaking out for no reason.
Wait till they hear about his second ship.
"9/11 was an inside job" 1, really was controversial naming.
I don’t remember this part in the movies
It’s from legends /s
LEGO only changed the name on their boxes, and named it how they do with almost EVERY ship they make. It’s still Slave 1 in canon. Quit your whining.
Yeah well, when they release a Slave Leia costume for little girls, they'd better not change the name of that, or my Jimmies will REALLY be rustled. Wait...please tell me a kids slave Leia costume isn't actually a thing. It probably is a thing isn't it?
You're copying an earlier meme.
That's like the definition of memes tho
This opportunity wasn’t passed someone already made almost the exact same…
There is even a video version https://amp.reddit.com/r/OTMemes/comments/oaf65j/such_an_interesting_name_for_a_ship/
They only changed it on Toys
>Missed the boat on the trend, but this opportunity to repost couldn't be passed up
Opportunity? This reference has been done to death
Not crazy 'bout The repost though.
I was watching Clone Wars the other day and Aurra Sing says Slave 1 in the episode where Plo Koon and Ahsoka go to Florum. The name is canon.
They never attempted to change the ship’s canon name
This subreddit will bitch about anything and pretend they care about toys like children.
Personally I like "Person And My Name's Anakin 1" myself.
It’s stupid because it has nothing to do with slavery as Americans interpret it. Boba Fett is a bounty hunter who binds/enslaves his targets before selling them to those who put a bounty on them - there is no subversive ideological motivation to any particular group, nor is it any particular group being disenfranchised. Boba Fett is an equal opportunity bounty hunter, one might say. :)
It looks like an iron
Probably was. Sci-Fi tech being made out of household objects painted to look different goes all the way back to Metropolis. I feel it adds to the otherworldly factor when the walls are made up of cardboard with cups glued to them, they're wearing cut up records as hats, and using women's razors as communicators.
Just call it the slav 1 Russian are going to love it.
Lol but Disney has no problem removing certain people from their movie posters for China.
As a kid I always miss read it as 'salve one'
I've never thought that someone could win best use of a meme, but I really don't think anyone's gonna top this.
You mean Unpaid Intern 1?
Prisoner with Job 1
Pretty sure this is a repost.
It's more of a reboot, didn't know others had the same idea so I thought I'd post here anyway
I would have accepted so many alternative names TBH but these Fucks didn't even try.
This is like naming your racing team, team racecar. 😑
They didn’t rename the ship. LEGO sets just almost never have the actual names on them, because only really big Star Wars nerds like us usually know them.
Shit I would have totally settled for STARCRUISER! CRASH!
Ok maybe not but screaming STARCRUISER Everytime you say it would be less idiotic
Disney : Boba Fett’s Starship
Rest of us : You mean the sla-
Disney : (Autistic screeching)
To paraphrase what I said the last time this exact meme was posted, gotta love a Robot Chicken meme
