"Star Wars 1313" patent filed by LucasFilm

Though we're not yet sure what this thing is, we're very curious about it. A website called Fusible first spotted the patent earlier today, and noted that it includes the use of video games as well as dozens of other categories. Including, but not limited to: sticker books, toy banks, and scooters (among dozens of others.)

The filing fits with a recent sightings of dozens of domain names being registered similar to "StarWars1313.com." We'll have to wait to find out just what in the world LucasFilm is up to, but so far there is one small hint. 

In the expanded Star Wars universe, Boba Fett once used the alias CT-1313. So while, it's not likely we'll ever see games/films/scooters based on Boba Fett in disguise, this could be a codename of sorts. Boba Fett is long overdue to get a starring role in a game and/or film.

    It's no Republic Commando 2, but I'll take it. Boba is an interesting and fairly deep character, so I can't wait to see what they do, if anything.

    My favorite Star Wars character with his own game? If that's the case, they better not screw it up.

    3rd person stealth/action Boba Fett. That's what I want.

    I thought Lucas was gonna do some TV series about Time-Traveling Mandalorians just so he could finally kill of the Star Wars franchise (You know, for all the fans over 13).

    Still not Republic Commando 2, Still don't care. Closer, though.

    Holy shit, a new bounty hunter would be great. I tried playing the original recently but it doesn't hold up too well...

    That sub-header is pure gold. No sugar coating, just cold hard facts.

    Well there has already been a game based on Jango Fett, back on the game cube called star wars bounty hunter.

    Wasn't just on the GameCube, but yeah, he's right.
