The mighty Boba Fett is hanging up his helmet.

Star Wars legend Jeremy Bulloch has officially announced his retirement from the convention circuits. The Boba Fett actor was recently seen signing autographs and participating in a photo shoot for Great Ormond Street Hospital at London Film & Comic Con, but his health has been in decline for some time and sadly the time has come to for him to hang up the helmet.

In a press release to his beloved fans, the legend wrote:

Dear Friends,

It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to stop attending conventions and hang up the Fett helmet. It has not been an easy decision to make. In 1979 I was called onto the set of Empire Strikes Back to play Boba Fett, and since that day it has changed the entire direction of my life in such a wonderful way. It has been a privilege to have had the opportunity to inspire so many generations of Star Wars fans. I have had over 20 years of travelling with my wife Maureen to some amazing countries and have met so many wonderful fans.

Thank you all so much and we will miss you all.

May the Force be with you always’

Jeremy
