Re: Boba and Jango, Side-by-Side

I still think Jango went down quickly by Mace Windu, not so much to show how weak Jango was, but to show how much of a baddy Mace Windu was supposed to be.  I mean, Jango fought Obi-Wan to a standstill, the guy he kills on the balcony was a member of the Jedi Council (aren't they all suppose to be the best of the Jedi).  Even in Open Seasons, after Jango realized how many of his men the Jedi have killed, Jango kills several of the Jedi "with his bare hands" before he is subdued.  Now, here comes Mace Windu who takes out Jango, seemingly effortlessly.  But to a Jedi of that skill, it probably should have been effortless.  However, I do think they had Jango depend on his jetpack too much.  He obviously wouldn't have bit the dust so quickly, had his jetpack fired, when he ignited it and all it did was spark and do nothing.  A much more drawn out fight between the two of them would have been more believable. 

I know I put this in another thread before, but here's the different pics of Jango's armor through the Open Seasons comics.  His first set looks very much like Boba's.

And his second set looks just like Jaster Mereel's, but without the symbols on it.

I will concede that JANGO had functional armor, he has all the same stuff as BOBA on the games and all, minus the rocket launcher, which is a fundamental difference.  BOBA is ready for a ship encounter, now JANGO did have the wrist rockets.

Jango had a rocket launching jetpack just like Boba. He fires it at Obi-Wan during their fight on the landing platform on Kamino in AotC. As far as my preference goes I like the way Jango's armor is bulkier and looks more like its made for actual combat.

Home is where the armor is.

Re: Boba and Jango, Side-by-Side

I don't like how Boba's armor doesn't cover important parts of him, like his legs. I'm surprised Boba didnt get hit by something in his leg and die because he couldn't walk

Maybe there's chain mail under his flight suit tongue

Re: Boba and Jango, Side-by-Side

Most Mandalorian Shock Trooper armor(like Boba's) have a liner shirt with a micro energy field projector and two layers of ceramic plates under the torso armor to increase durability and protection, so maybe the pants have the same thing or something similar. It would seem unlikely that Boba or Jango or any Mando would leave their legs with so little protection.

Home is where the armor is.

Re: Boba and Jango, Side-by-Side

Uber protection factor tongue Obviousy technology will have advanced from Jango's time to Boba's. Also we've often wondered what Boba spends his credits on, I'd say it'd be for the ultimate armour enhancers out there big_smile

As to Jango's head in the helmet, if you look closely following the scene in which he's decapitated, you can see the helmet fly through the air and the shadow of Jango's head flying out from it.

Do you know what color they were going to paint it?

Maybe they were going to paint it to be green like Boba's.

Now I also have to watch the arena fight more carefully to see this thing with the helm. Im fascinated and grossed out at the same time.

Re: Boba and Jango, Side-by-Side

Just watched the scene on YouTube, there is a head shaped/sized shadow. Interesting.

I don't think either of them has a perfect set of colors, though I like Boba's better.  Was a bit taken back when i saw Jango for the first time..........purple suit............but it grew on me.  Love Boba's battle worn look, though it might be just a tad overdone *battle worne is one thing; neglecting your armor is another; but it seems functional enough,* and he uses a really good green, and love the red visor and red gauntlets in RotJ.  My only beef with his armor was the shoes and the yellow on the shoulder bells

Never the less; would love to see those to walking down a street together; ready for anything.   With a squad of SuperCommandos backing them up   wink

Purple? Looks blue to me. smile

Yeah, I know; but it seemed purple to the skeptical eye when I first saw him    tongue

Most of the small action figures of him have a purple flight suit though.....ick, looking at mine now

Re: Boba and Jango, Side-by-Side

You dont ee that is so sad, sad i have over o dozen of each (not to brag) But on another note, in the books boba re-paints and cleans his armor all the time. Maybe he thinks the chips and dents give him an edge of sorts.

Church... when I die I want you to have my orange juice!

Re: Boba and Jango, Side-by-Side

I don't have any either. Cause I grew up in a house hold where my mom rather...well, she hates Star Wars. GASP I know. Apparently though, my great grandpa was a Trekkie. o_O;

But yeah, I think Boba is cooler. I don't know why exactly. Theres just something about him I find more appealing.

Re: Boba and Jango, Side-by-Side

I agree that Boba is the better and more interesting Fett *though not by much in my book,* but I can't get over the thought that Both of them TOGETHER would be even BETTER!

***************************************************************************************************************************************

Ep. VI: Return of the Jedi

Boba Fett gets back to his feet.  Looking across at the other hover skiff, he sees Luke deflecting bolts from the passengers.  Boba takes aim with his wrist laser and fires, missing just a little high.

Behind him, Solo hears Chewie say Boba is right behind him.  "Boba Fett?  Boba Fett??  Where..."

Before he can swing his stick/whatever backward, Solo is sniped in the head by Jango from the deck of the sail barge.  Boba, seeing with his 360 degree vision what almost happened, gives 'ol Dad a quick wave/salute, takes aim again with his missile launcher, and blows up Luke's hover skiff, sending LUKE screaming into the Sarlacc like a girl.

Father and son take THEIR sail barge *Leia would have still done her part and strangled Jabba to death* back to THEIR new base of Mandalorian operations in the sector, and claim the prizes of victory *Leia would also still be lookin' gooooooooood in that outfit   wink *

                                                                                        THE END

*the end of Ep. VI anyway.  A whole new trilogy would be required to tell the tales of Boba and Jango's further exploits   big_smile *

It's the perfect ending as far as I'm concerned.........some reason however I'm not sure I'd get the same vote from the Jedi lovers out there   tongue
