Jeremy Bulloch, the man behind the mask of the fearsome bounty hunter Boba Fett, has this evening announced his retirement.

Appearing just last week at London Film and Comic Con, Jeremy has decided to hang up the helmet after over 20 years of conventions around the world.

Matt Booker, our resident Fett expert and long time friend of Jeremy had this to say:

It’s been a pleasure and honour to know Jeremy for the 28 years at conventions and for the last 5 years help him into the armour for so many charity events. As anyone who has met him and Maureen at appearances across the globe will all agree they are the nicest guests on the circuit and wish them both well in retirement.

We will say more about this over the coming days, but for now we simply say this – thank you Jeremy.
