Topic: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

It's clear by now that not everyone has the fondest feelings towards Jango Fett.  If you're one of those who hates him, explain why.  Or, if you think he's great, tell us why he's worthy to be Boba's father.

Re: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

I am fairly nutral towards Jango, but this is because I read your "30 Seconds to Live." I formerly hated him because he seemed like a cowered. When I first became a Fett Fanatic, Jango was my second favorite character.

Re: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

Jango is awsome, he rules,and is totally worthy of being called Boba's father.  He's got a pretty decent sized jedi kill list, on Galidran he single handedly killed several jedi with his bare hands, killed Vosa, and also a few jedi on Geonosis.  There are probably other unmentioned kills.  And another thing, the only reason Mace was able to kill Jango was because he got stepped on by the Reek first.

Re: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

Yeah.....but his armor shouldnt be shiny. He once said to Boba, "Never polish your armor, you never want to attract yourself in this line of business." or something like that.

But...Jango's worthy. He past down his code to Boba, and Boba took it from there, and went on.

It's like they say,'our children are the future.'

Unless we stop them now!

Anyways, Jango did not kill Vosa, and the honor that he passed down was not just his, it belogs to all Mandalorians.

Re: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

I think clean armor is cool big_smile

Re: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

I think jango is  TOTALLY worthy of being a Fett......the only reason why some think otherwise is because boba surpassed him by a good bit.......and thus jango becomes 2nd best....or not as cool/easy to kill. I bet if Boba never existed......most of us boba fans would be in love with jango....even if he is decapitated in the movie. (By the way, the only reason jango got killed was because his jetpack didn't fire off when he told it to....due to the stomping on that he got......try watching it in slo mo....his jetpack tries then fails)

Re: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

Yeah, in the movie, as Jango gets up from being trampled his jetpack emits sparks from the top so he couldn't nuke Mace off the face of Geonosis.

What IS with the shiny armor?  It is sacrificing camoflage.  Not that he would need it

Read Jango Fett opening season.  There is a possible explanation.

Re: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

But it might not work. Its sacrificing camoflage like me and Jawa Java were saying. That might not get the job done right. And Boba HAS to get the job done right.

Re: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

But by the time an enemy sees Jabgo, he is probably already dead anyway, so for him comaflouge doesn't matter.

Re: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

Camo or not, i don't think it matter's when it comes to effecting the job that much. It would look cooler shiny and i don't think it would help people see him better. They would be dead long before they knew where he was or who it was.

Re: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

Ya  know.........this is a hard argument.......hhmmmmm......well.....everyone is right in some ways. Most of the time, Jango would kill them before they even knew where he was, but............some times poeple would get a couple of hits in...........it's kinda, like a total brawl, you never know whats gonna happen. hmm

Re: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

Even if they could see where he was, it isn't like they'd have a chance against him.

Re: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

true, unless they had long range weapons also....and then it might turn the tides more even.

Re: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

I think his shiny armor is a symbol and intimidation, because that's all people know about him and they can recognize the armor, which just happens to be shiny, so that's why i think he keeps it that way

Re: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

Good point...i think, if i'm right, this whole thing started with a comment made by jango that you shouldn't ever polish your armor...i might be mistaken but i think he doesn't try to keep it shiny, he just hasn't bumped it up as much as Boba...

Yes that is a good point, it's like givin the opponent a handicaped, and he still wins! Kinda makes a statement.

Re: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

i just thought of something both boba and jango die of jetpack malfuntions. thats odd.
and jango is soo cool the way i see jango is the best of his time and boba is the best of his time.

some blood lines were ment to end.

Re: Jango: Worthy to be a Fett?

I thought Jango's death and Boba's plunge into the Sarlacc did no justice for both the characters. At least Boba learns from his mistake and never underestimates his enemies as much as he did during the barge battle. Jango was terribly unlucky to get trampled by that massive kroot thing and then had to fight Mace all battered up with a busted jetpack. IF I were Jango fighting against Mace id fire two shots from my dual westars to get him swinging that camp lightsaber of his and then Id sneakily fire a poison dart into his knee cap.

I agree.  Oh yes, lets not forget that Boba survived his "death".
