While official Star Wars canon has Boba Fett falling into the Sarlacc Pit never to return, there are stories in the non-canon Expanded Universe that have Boba Fett crawling out and escaping. However, LEGO builder Daniel Stoeffler has rescued Fett in a more creative way.
This amazing build was for a Star Wars contest over at Techlug that challenged entrants to create the story of Boba Fett’s escape in LEGO. Stoeffler not only came up with a fantastic build, but he came up with one heck of a story to go with it.
In his diorama, the Jawas run a distillery out of the Pit of Carkoon. They collect the Sarlacc’s digestive juices and then filter it to create “Jawa Juice” or “Nectar of the Sarlacc”.
Here’s where the theory gets really fun. Stoeffler suggests that Boba Fett fell in and found the opening in the Sarlacc’s stomach that contained the digestive juice collecting tube. When he makes it through into the distillery, he’s severly ill and they nurse him back to health.
During his time in the distillery, he even helps out and, after some time, Boba Fett leaves and the Jawas have a new ally.
You gotta admit, that is way cooler than a dead Boba Fett.
