Boba didn't get killed by some jedi with a purple lightsaber.





I hope I have made my point.  If I didn't, read it again.  Maybe five more times.

Boba's armour was wrecked because it belonged to a man who died about 30 years before he got to wear it.

Have you ever seen the incredibles that shows you what happens to people who have capes.

Jango's pistols allowed him to shoot much faster than Boba allowing him to kill multiple opponents.

Yeah Boba was much better accidently being hit by a blind smuggler. I know he didn't die but I would rather have Jango's death than boba's embarrasment.

I love Boba but i just think jango was better. and as for the credits thing Jango made a hell of a lot more money than boba ever did.

The armor may have been slightly damaged when he got it, but it certainly picked up most of the 'scars' from when Boba used it.

I pretty sure the thing about the capes in Incredibles was ment to be a joke.

It is unpractical and imposible to use two pistols accurately.  Boba's Carbine has more range.

Boba may have been ;accidentaly hit by Han, but he didn't die and Jango did.  Point made.

There is no proof whatsoever how many credits either of them got.

Re: boba or jango (who's better)

I love the stuff I've heard about Jango (I'm dying to get my hands on Open Seasons, and I love the awesome cowboy pistol spins!) but as cool as he was...He didn't have Boba Fett's sense of honor, or style. Boba has that air of creepy intimidation that Jango never really captured.

In the Bounty Hunter game, Jango Fett gets 5 million credits for Komari Vosa, and "a lot more" for being cloned. Of course, we'll probably never know what Dooku meant by "a lot more" nor will we know about the other jobs of Jango or Boba hmm

Impossible? I think not. With enough practice, you can shoot two pistols accurately while hollding them with your teeth and pulling the trigger with your tongue. Impractical? Possibly. It can make your opponet run around a little more and you can fire consecutively a whole lot faster.

Re: boba or jango (who's better)

If Jango Fett was ambidexterous, perhaps using two guns would be easier than it is for those who are not? Perhaps he found a way to fire both guns at the same target, much like how a starfighter links two cannons together to fire at one target? Or, like in Bounty Hunter, he could fire at 2 targets at once, but perhaps in a non game situation, the 2nd target was not as accurately hit, but served as an intimidation/crowd control tactic.

Actually, there are a book or two that say how much Boba made on his hunts. I'm a bit rushed right now cause I'm eating breakfast before going to work, but I can look it up later for the exact amounts he made.

And if killing Jedi was all that could make you a good hunter, Aurra Sing would be far greater than Jango. But think about this. Fett lived in the time when the Jedi were extinct, while Jango when Jedi were abundant. So of course Jango killed more Jedi than Boba. (I don't really beleive in Boba hanging Padawan heads in Slave 1. It would just add extra weight to the ship.)

I do not think that having a bunch of Jedi heads (and I am pretty sure thate they were not Padawan's) would not add much weight.

(Do you mean you think that they would not add much wait or that they would add weight)

Well, he stripped the slave 1 of basically everything that would weigh it down, such as modern comforts like a sofa or such. I would rather have a comfy sofa than a bunch of heads.

Re: boba or jango (who's better)

Boba's made 5 million credits in a single bounty; can't remember exactly which one it was, but I know he did.

This argument, has got to end. More specifically, it has to end with Boba being the victor. I will do my best to list Boba's most prominent qualities and accomplishments, and you see if his idiotic old man can match up:

1) Boba is the most legendary bounty hunter of his time. The vey sight of his armor inspires fear. Jango on the other hand, was nowhere close to as well known. If he was, then Obi Wan would have recognized him as he flew away after killing Zam (who he used to do the dirty work...coward).

2)Boba has taken on an entire Imperial Garrison just to get at a single man inside. He succeeded, in the process killing two ATATs, several ATSTs, the base's commander, and a good amount of stormtroopers.

3) The Slave I, under Boba's ownership, received a cloaking device, ion cannon, proton torpedo launcher, and even a voice-activated self-healing system. Under Jango, it had a pair of low power repeaters (seems to be a theme of his, fill the air with enough weak shots and maybe you'll hit something.), some seeker rockets, and some seismic mines. Jango couldn't kill a Jedi starfighter (far from conditioned for combat), while Boba was able to kill the IG-2000 despite the fact that he was ambushed as he reached Tatooine's atmo. The better pilot is clear.

4) Boba wields an EE-3 blaster carbine, wrist lasers, kneepad rocket-darts, boot spikes, a whipcord, a flamethrower, and a high-power sonic weapon built into his armor. Jango uses two skeletal, short range, and weak Westar 34s, wrist blades, a wrist flechette launcher, and a flamethrower. Both have rockets mounted on their jetpacks, but those never really come into play. Boba's armaments are more accurate, more powerful, and more useful. Jango's did nothing to save his life at the hands of Mace (whom I thank), while Boba's killed more than his fair share of Jedi without losing his head, if you'll forgive the pun.

5) Boba succeeded in breaking the entire Bounty Hunter's guild apart, just to get the job done.

6) Boba has a clear sense of honor, as he shows when he tracks down Han Solo - and lets him go again. He caught up with Solo because Han's old girlfriend had told Boba to let her father know when she died. She did, and because Boba didn't know how to contact her parents, he found Solo and gave the message to him to relay to her parents. Then he let his most elusive piece of prey to date go without a second thought, all because he was bound by honor to do so. Concerning Jango's sense of honor, he pays a changling to do his jobs for him, so we can see how that ends.

7) Boba survived a fall into the Sarlacc, something never accomplished by anyone. And more than that, he crippled the thing, and could've killed it had he seen it necessary. When Jango was in a pit, with at least one Jedi present and blaster bolts flying, he lost the part of his body which he never really used anyway (which would be his head, to silence any perverts out there).

8) Boba has t3h h4xx0r green armor, scored by wounds from countless battles. Jango, on the other hand, keeps his unmarked armor clean and shiny, proudly bearing the marks of the battles that he...hasn't had. It can be likened to how a gay person keeps their nails clean (Jango has been pwn3d).

9) Boba is awesome. Jango is not.

10) Boba wins. Period.

The reasons for these two are mainly becaus Boba ived 20 years after Jango. That is like comparing a driver in the 80's  with a driver in the 21st century based on what car they used. (But I do agree with you on the other points)

It's from Tales from the New Republic, "No disintagrations, please" I think is the name of the actual story. I think the book's out of print, so I'd try ebay or amazon marketplace.

And about the credits: Boba made 5 million from the hunt for the Butcher of Montellian Serat. a 250,000 for delivering Han to Jabba, 100,000 for getting Han for Vader, 150,000 for capturing Feldrall Okor, 500,000 for capturing Nivek'Yppiks, and 50,000 in No Disintagrations, Please.
My sources are: Tales of the Bounty Hunters, Tales from Jabba's Palace, and the old Essential Guide to Characters. I know there's a few in Bounty Hunter Wars but that would take too long to dig through.

Exactly. I'd actually like to see what Jango's first response would be at meeting his adult son without knowing it's him. I think he'd wet himself. Boba just oozes intimidation. Hmm, I'm getting an idea for a story...

Jango didn't know where he was but it seemed to be the future. He stared at a man in a battered suit of Mandalorian Armor. A chill ran down his spine as the man turned the full weight of his stare on Jango. There was something familiar yet chillingly disturbing.

Boba Fett lifted his blaster rifle. "Hello, father."

I was actually in a roleplay similar to that, whereas I was Boba Fett. But I was horrible at playing Boba Fett at the time, so it didn't work out too good...

Re: boba or jango (who's better)

It is a very close call i give it that.

however there is one thing that i can't seem to fathom why jango fett was criticised which is being killed by mace windu.

mace is said to be the most powerful jedi of this time and if anyone says that boba would have killed mace in a one to one combat is having a laugh.

also when jango fought mace he was greatly disadvantaged, he had a broken jet pack and only one blaster after he lost if fighting obi-wan.

also open seasons is a great series i would recommend it to anyone.

Re: boba or jango (who's better)

I like Jango better, ONLY because Jango has a full set of Mandalorian armor (armor on legs). but Boba would never look right with full armor so I guess its a draw.

I wrote a story like that once. It had Jango traveling through time, without knowing it, and he met up with Boba, and at first they didn't know who each other was, and they started fighting, then they gave a truce and started talking. At the time I loved the fic, I thought it was brilliant. But now, I'm not so sure. I don't know if I even still have that one, it was a long time ago. I'll have to dig around and see if I can find it....

But you can write one like that too, not saying you stole my idea, cause even your little bit right there is probably better than my whole fic put together. tongue

Re: boba or jango (who's better)

I vote Boba, firstly because he looks cooler, all battered and with a cape.  More importantly, however, I prefer him for the personality.  I don't remember Jango ever talking about his moral code/honor in the comics (though to his credit, there's not much material on him that we have to read.)  Boba, on the other hand, is heartless on the surface, but actually donates to orphans ("Twin Engines of Destruction") and spares the lives of people who deserve it, such as those who care for children (i.e. "No Disintegrations Please" and Star Wars Tales #18).  But don't get me wrong, Jango's cool too.  Just not the same.  Jango doesn't have the mystery (and yes, I still think Boba's mystery is there) and intrigue that Boba does.
