No matter what he does, Bulloch will always be known for his place in 'Star Wars' canon, but in his case, infamy has been very good to him. The international fan organization The 501st Legion, whose members make and wear screen-accurate replicas of imperial uniforms at various conventions and charity events, have made Bulloch an honorary member. He has even trooped with them in his own fan-made Bobba Fett costume as part of the UK Garrison.

Over 30 years ago he stepped onto our screens and into the pages of history as one of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars film franchise.
On September 2009 Jeremy made his first guest appareance with the UK Garrison at the Movie Mania event in the National Space Centre.
In November 2009 Jeremy Bulloch, the actor who played the Bounty Hunter Boba Fett, once again donned his armour and officially joined the ranks of the 501st Legion, the world's largest costuming group as the character he created all those years ago.
On 17 December 2020, Jeremy passed over to the Hall of the Eternal Legionnaires, but will always be "our" Boba Fett.
