Excellent work everyone! Correct answers all around. Looks like the only unanswered brainteaser is #5.

Like my father before me,
I hide my gaze with pride.
In a land with twice the blaze
lays a hole by which I died.

Boba Fett wore his father's armor and fell into the pit of carkoon on tatooine where he(allegedly) died.

Fresh and hot:
I can dance, twist, and roll
in the shadows on my own,
but rarely do I leave
my elevated throne.

Maybe I should make them a little easier...
Imbued by my maker, I shone with pride,
but fell from a swing, stolen by his side.
Lost to time, still I called his name,
'til I called no more in the home where I became.
