Is Jango Fett Cool?
Now that we’ve had many years to digest the prequels, I’ve noticed recently that Jango Fett, the bounty hunter, is getting more love in the world of collectibles.
George Lucas admits that he underestimated the allure of Boba Fett, and obviously tried to make up for it in the prequels by making his father, Jango, really cool. Unfortunately, he failed miserably at making Boba the Kid cool, but he did give Jango a slick look, cool gadgets, a bigger role and an epic death when he was foolish enough to bring a gun to a lightsaber fight. But since many Star Wars fans agree that the prequels sucked, let’s put it to a vote. Is he cool? VOTE AT THE BOTTOM.
Here’s why I’m asking this now. Recently, Sideshow Collectibles released a $4,500 bronze statue of Jango Fett. They also did it for Boba Fett and Darth Vader, but that’s all. Bronze statues are said to be able to last an eternity, so long after humans become extinct and everything deteriorates, we’ll still have 25 Jangos standing around the planet:
But that’s not all that’s new for Jango. This also recently came out for $150:
Jango Fett – 2nd Jett Pack Version
Of course, there are many other Jango Fett items available, but the ones above are new and for serious collectors.
Before we vote, let’s admire some photos and artwork of Jango.
