Présentation de l'éditeur
Press the buttons, insert the data card, and the case opens with sounds and lights. Housed within is a text of great import. At some point in his career Boba Fett bound together the latest edition of the Bounty Hunters Guild Handbook and a manifesto from Death Watch, the secretive splinter group of Mandalorians. Together, these volumes make up The Bounty Hunter Code.
The handbook is an essential guide for all bounty hunters. Senior Guild members offer advice for hunters new to the Guild, a detailed list of the tools and techniques crucial to the “crimson trade,” and the basics of making a living on the margins of galactic law. Boba Fett has scrawled additions and commentary in the margins throughout, as have the bounty hunters Greedo, Bossk, and Dengar, all of whom were once in possession of the Handbook.
The Death Watch volume—part informational guide, part manifesto—is full of Death Watch history, philosophy, and discussions of key Mandalorian gear: their famous T-visors, their celebrated armor, and their impressive jetpacks. This Death Watch booklet was originally taken from Death Watch leader Tor Vizsla and given to Boba by his father, Jango Fett, and features handwritten notes from father to son. Boba in turn intended to leave it to his daughter, and so he’s added his own annotations to aid in her education. The bounty hunter Aurra Sing and the pirate Hondo Ohnaka have added their commentary as well.
Tucked beneath The Bounty Hunter Code is Cradossk’s memoir, Making a Killing, a brutal account of his rise to the top of the Bounty Hunters Guild.
From the creators of Book of Sith and The Jedi Path, in collaboration with Lucasfilm, The Bounty Hunter Code reveals the secrets of the hunt and offers insight into this demanding, dangerous, and misunderstood profession.
The case includes:
- The Bounty Hunter Code
- The 48-page memoirs of Cradossk, former head of the Bounty Hunters Guild, with an inscription from the author to Boba Fett
- A Kamino saberdart
- Boba Fett’s captain's license
- Boba Fett's arms permit
- Slave I’s official operating license
- An Imperial wanted poster for Han Solo
- An inventory slip from the Rebel Alliance forces who discovered and seized Boba’s property

In future, if they make this for other professions, I'll think twice about buying.
5/10. Points are for the look of the case & book and the Death Watch manifesto part, which was interesting for clarifying a few points of Mandalorian history, even if seen through an extreme bias.
I would rate it 2.5 stars but I can't so I chose 2 because I felt 3 was too positive.

These books are fun to read and also nice collectibles.
Are you looking for the perfect gift for a Star Wars nerd? Well look no further! The Bounty Hunter Code Vault Edition is an exciting book that is packaged in a stunning container. This product has a ton of exciting features that bring the Star Wars universe to life. Even kids who don’t like to read will want to get their hands on this product!
Imagine that you sneak onto the spaceship of bloodthirsty bounty hunter, Boba Fett. You are looking for his secret journal and time is running out before he returns to the ship! As you dig through his messy belongings you stumble upon a lazer blaster, a jet pack, and old pictures of wanted criminals. Finally you discover an old, bronze metal container covered in dust. You wipe the dust off and press the two buttons on the side of the mysterious box. The box comes to life with lights and sounds as it pops open to reveal on old journal. It’s the journal of Boba Fett! You quickly steal it and put it in your jacket before he returns to find out what you did!
The case for this book really gets you into the mood for reading. It is made of strong, durable plastic and really looks like it belonged to a ruthless bounty hunter. The front of the case is decorated with Boba Fett’s creepy skull symbol. There are also fake scratch marks on the front of the case to make it look old and beaten up from action. To open the case you simply press the two buttons on the side and the box comes to life! A click sound and movie-quality beeps emerge from the case as it lights up in four bright colors: orange, red, blue, and green. A card slot appears and you can use the activation card (located on the bottom of the box) to pop the cover up. As the top hisses open you will see The Bounty Hunter Code sitting there, waiting for you to read it!
The design of the case is very interactive and makes you excited to read the book inside. I only have three criticisms about its design. First, the cover is only a single bronze color. It would be amazing if the skull on the front was grey and there were little red marks in the fake scratches. Additional colors would definitely bring this product to life even more! Second, the case cover doesn’t always open all the way by itself when you use the activation card. Sometimes it opens all the way by itself, but half the time it only opens partially and you need to push it open by hand. Third, the case is too large to fit on my bookshelf. I need to find a place where I can store it better.
The Bounty Hunter Code is a very unique book. It is organized into different sections that teach the reader how to become a successful bounty hunter. The book covers topics such as bounty hunter history, rules, gear, vehicles, and skills. Each topic is very detailed with full color photos and diagrams. There are even little annotations on the side of the book by famous Star Wars characters such as Bossk, Dengar, Jango Fett, and Greedo. When reading this book you actually feel like you are on your way to becoming one of the galaxy’s most feared hunters!
This book is truly for Star Wars nerds only. People who are not very interested in Star Wars won’t recognize all of the random characters featured in the book. While the book doesn’t have any bad language, there are some parts that can be a little violent. I wouldn’t recommend this product for kids younger than 13 years old. Little kids might find the topics to be a little too intense and scary. Parents might not want their kids to read this book unless they are very mature.
There are a few bonus materials featured in this product. Inside the case sits a plastic poison dart that is modeled after a movie prop featured in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of The Clones. Inside The Bounty Hunter Code book is a wanted poster and a few other pieces of paperwork that look like they belonged to Boba Fett. These extras are kind of exciting, but they don’t add very much to the overall experience. Don’t get too excited about them.
The Bounty Hunter Code Vault Edition is typically priced around $45. This might be a little too expensive if you aren’t a huge Star Wars fan. If you are just interested in the book, you can buy it for $14.49 without the fancy case and extras. Casual fans might prefer that deal. Crazy Star Wars nerds, however, will be jumping for joy when they open the vault edition with all the extra features.
This product is a masterpiece for extreme Star Wars fans. Even though the case design isn’t perfect, it is still incredibly impressive. The price is expensive, so only get it as an extra special gift for someone you love. Don’t forget: the product large and you’ll need a good place to store it once you’re done reading the book. If The Bounty Hunter Code Vault Edition is right for you, prepare for the reading experience of a lifetime!
