It now seems we have the new official name of Boba Fett’s iconic ship Slave I. You all might remember a while back when we reported on the Slave I name being changed on the new The Mandalorian LEGO set. When that set was released Slave I was replaced by the name Boba Fett’s Starship. That change was enough to drive some fans to start a petition to try to keep the Slave I name. Well, it seems as if the petition has fallen on death ears because this week the new official name “Firespray” has been revealed thanks to the War of the Bounty Hunters crossover event from Marvel Comics.
Slave I Name Officially Changed To Firespray
A few weeks ago we shared with you six new variant covers for the Star Wars: War of the Bounty series featuring the ships of the bounty hunters. Well, a press release revealed that Boba Fett’s Slave I has been renamed to Firespray. These comic covers by Paolo Villanelli called “Behold the Vehicles of War” give us the names of the bounty hunters and their ships.
- Bossk and The Hound’s Tooth
- Boba Fett and Firespray
- IG-88 and IG-2000
- Zuckuss / 4-Lom and The Mist Hunter
- Valance Beilert and The Broken Wing
- Dengar and The Punishing One
These variant blueprint covers form a giant poster.
