Topic: jango's death

just wanting to put a different angle on the matter.

I think we can agree that jango's death is the most gruesome and conclusive of all star wars film deaths.

does anyone think this was done so that there could be no repeat of the boba coming back to life scenario as boba's death was inconclusive and george lucas was quite annoyed by his coming back to life.

"I should shoot you just for asking about that" (Jango Fett to count dooku for mentioning Galidraan)

Re: jango's death

He was annoyed about him coming back....i didn't know that...      But i think you might be right there...there certainly isn't any way he is coming back to life there...except if maybe he pulled his head back in his shell like a turtle, and mace cut off only the helmet....he he he  lol...

Re: jango's death

Definitely, I think you're right about the reason behind the head-chopping.  But even so, a lot of people were saying that Jango had made a clone die in his place.

Re: jango's death

Hmmmm   never thought of that. Maybe 'cause i'm not a die-hard Jango fan. I think it is balogney though...a clone!   no way...

Re: jango's death

what if jango got one than one clone and had like ten that he had to use like decoys

some blood lines were ment to end.

Re: jango's death

That would be a good strategy!! but he'd have to get into clone armor first to be in camoflage.

Re: jango's death

Why would he make his son go through such torture...in thinking that his dad had just died in front of his eyes...he wouldn't do that.  Even if he did, immediately after the clone wars he would reveal himself to Boba     wouldn't he?

Re: jango's death

Just what I was about to say.  He wouldn't let Boba think that he was dead for so many years.

Boba: Lord Vader, I bring good news.--Vader: You have captured Solo?--Boba: No.--Vader: Then what is it?--Boba: I just saved 15% on starship insurance by switching to Geiko! {MW}

Re: jango's death

some blood lines were ment to end.

Re: jango's death

Oh but there is a Boba, this was proven in ATOC.

Boba: Lord Vader, I bring good news.--Vader: You have captured Solo?--Boba: No.--Vader: Then what is it?--Boba: I just saved 15% on starship insurance by switching to Geiko! {MW}

Re: jango's death

yea i know its some toong that my friend told me once. it dosent make all that much sence.

some blood lines were ment to end.

Re: jango's death

It's kind of funny, it would make a good infinities story.

Re: jango's death

I hated the death scene.  The way it was shot made it seem as if Jango landed where he did, and said "Here I am Mace baby. Lop off me noggin'."

Then again, Mandaloran armor is resistant to lightsabers. Weakspots need to be targeted, most notably, the neck area. So, perhaps it was correct for the Mandaloran idiom.

You may be onto something re: the finality.  I think it certainly was strong content for the movies, but they were a darker offering in some ways than Episode IV - VI.  I think the main reason it was done, though, was to show Mace's superior skills in a quick, non-lecturing way.

Remember: we saw Jango mix it up with a variety of campers, most notably Master Obi Wan. They really went to town, and you saw Obi Wan (a skilled master) struggle and ultimately, lose to Jango's superior skills.  So, when Mace comes along and does a quick slice and dice, it's a very potent message that says without too many words:  This guy really is the baddest Jedi Master in Dodge City.

Re: jango's death

You're wrong. And Jango sucks.

Re: jango's death

Jango doesn't suck, he just had a bad day where his opponent got lucky. We all have those....

Re: jango's death

I would use a different word, but SciFi is right. Jango once used two wrist rockets to get rid of two guards who were running away. He sent his child in as a distraction. He hires assassins to do the dirty-work that he was hired to do.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: jango's death

Yeah, Jango pretty much sucked since the day he was born.  We're not just talking about Geonosis here.

what!!!!?? If he sucks so much, then why are you a fan member? I mean, it aint JFFC but Boba is Jango's clone, and clones pretty much have the same skill as the host.

Re: jango's death

Wow, I didn't know you were that dense. Clones have as much skill as they learn, knowledge isn't hereditary, genius. I'm a member of this site because I'm a fan of Boba, hence Boba Fett Fan Club. Now come on, I knew you weren't intelligent, but this is simple stuff. Jango is without a doubt the most unskilled and hopeless being ever to share his DNA, surpassed by both Boba and the clones.

You think all clones have the same skill? How about the difference between a clone trooper and a Republic Commando? Or the difference between a RC and an ARC trooper? Jesus Christ on a cracker, think before you say something stupid. Or just save time and say nothing at all.

Re: jango's death

I bet that there are more poeple here that disagree with you greatly. Im not "that" stupid, but Boba learned pretty much FROM Jango, plus he is a clone of Jango.

And I know that different clones have different skill, that is because they were trained to become what they are. Its the same with Boba and Jango. Jango taught Boba the same way Jodo taught him. And different clones have different practices, missions, tests, and I wouldn't be surprised if the Kaminoians were changing thier DNA to make them buff, like the republic commandos. hmm

So in conclusion........I'm not as stupid as you thought.
