These Star Wars papercrafts are the Boba Fett and Han Solo, frozen in a carbonite block, the paper model was created by Noturno & Sukhoi. The scale of the paper models is in 1:6. Boba Fett was a Mandalorian warrior and bounty hunter. He was a clone of the famed Jango Fett, created in 32 BBY as the first of many Fett replicas designed to become part of the Grand Army of the Republic, and was raised as Jango’s son. Jango taught Boba much, training him to become as skilled bounty hunter as his father-figure was before him. In 22 BBY, Jango was killed at the Battle of Geonosis, which opened the Clone Wars. Just a boy, Boba was forced to grow up and took to traveling the galaxy. Later, he became a bounty hunter and took assignments from beings such as Jabba the Hutt, and achieved notoriety despite his young age.
When the Empire was formed in 19 BBY, it was the perfect environment for Fett. During this time, he also married Sintas Vel and had a daughter named Ailyn Vel. Fett became known as the galaxy’s best bounty hunter of the next several decades, often working for the Empire. He collaborated with Darth Vader on several occasions, and the Sith Lord even developed a begrudging respect for the bounty hunter.
In 1 BBY, a year after the Galactic Civil War had begun, Fett was hired to kidnap the Rebel captain Juno Eclipse to use her as bait to lure the clone of Galen Marek. He participated in the Battle of Kamino and when Darth Vader was captured and ready to be interrogated on Dantooine, the Mandalorian bounty hunter followed the Rogue Shadow on the way there.
Fett made his most notable bounty in 3 ABY, when he captured Rebel hero Han Solo, and brought him to Jabba. A year later, during the Battle of the Great Pit of Carkoon, Fett fought against the group of Rebels. However, he was knocked into the mouth of the Sarlacc by Solo. Though no one in recorded history had ever escaped from the Sarlacc, Fett was able to escape, although not entirely unscathed. Thanks to his iron will and Mandalorian armor, he was able to fight his way out of the beast’s belly, killing the Sarlacc. Back in action, he continued his work as a bounty hunter.
After a promise made to a dying Fenn Shysa, Fett became Mandalore and eventually led the Mandalorians through the Yuuzhan Vong War. Originally working as a mercenary for the invaders, Fett later helped the New Republic in their battle against the extragalactic aliens. When the Yuuzhan Vong assaulted Mandalore and bombarded the surface, a large deposit of Mandalorian iron was unearthed, ironically helping strengthen the Mandalorians. Later, during the Second Galactic Civil War, Boba, who was still leading the Mandalorians, was plagued by his ailing health. He found his granddaughter, Mirta Gev, and the two went on many missions together, even alongside Han Solo. Fett also trained Solo’s daughter Jaina to kill her twin brother, Darth Caedus, and assisted the Jedi Coalition in several battles. Ultimately, Fett’s training helped Jaina bring down Caedus, though an Imperial nanovirus attack prevented Fett from ever returning to Mandalore.
The Empress Teta system was a source of carbonite. The discovery that carbonite could be used to freeze spacers for their long journeys among the stars put an end to the generation ships. Koros Major became a boomworld and one of the strongholds of Mining Guild.
The planet of Polus also had vast quantities of the metal alloy in its frozen wastelands. The inhabitants of Polus played a major role in the freezing process and mining.
There were numerous times when individuals encased themselves in carbonite. In 33 BBY, I-5YQ froze himself and Lorn Pavan in carbonite to survive an explosion set off by Darsha Assant during her duel with Darth Maul. Sometime during the Clone Wars, Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker encased himself and his team in carbonite to be sent undetected to the planet Gwori, and later used this method on another mission.
Filba used carbonite for smuggling bota harvested on Drongar during the Clone Wars to preserve its quality. Some of Coruscant’s skyhooks were tethered to the surface with carbonite nanofiber.
In some locales, carbonite was also used to preserve the bodies of the dead. On Coruscant, Senator Viento was buried in this manner in the Senatorial Tombs. Han Solo was frozen in carbonite on Darth Vader’s orders to test whether a Human could survive being encased in carbonite before his plan to freeze Luke Skywalker. The modifications to the freezing chamber were successful in that Han lived through the freezing process and entered into suspended animation. Moruth Doole froze the body of the former warden of the Kessel prison system in carbonite in his office as a trophy. While imprisoned in carbonite, a Force user could not use the Force, or interact with it on any significant level, making it a useful Jedi containment tool. A common part of a hyperdrive was a carbonite insert.
Early in the Galactic Civil War, the Galactic Empire used Carbonite war droids which sprayed a target in carbonite to freeze and paralyse an enemy. There was at least one case of Carbonite war droids spraying an entire village in carbonite. During the time of the Second Galactic Civil War, Boba Fett and Mirta Gev discovered that Fett’s wife, Sintas Vel, had not died, but had been imprisoned in carbonite.
In 43.5 ABY, just a couple of years after the end of the Second Galactic Civil War, Chief of State Natasi Daala utilized carbonite to imprison violent Jedi that were succumbing to a mysterious Force psychosis. Carbonite was seen as the only means to contain the Jedi due to the relatively safe incapacitating effect of carbonite encasement. There were some Force-sensitive beings that could break free of carbonite restraints, however, including Galen Marek and his clone. Imperial Knight Antares Draco was frozen in carbonite in 138 ABY. It also seems that carbonite lowered all biological and electronic processes to a point where a master of the Force would miss.
