IG-88's not as smart as he thinks he is.  He has some serious judgement issues, and I think Jango could easily take him.

Like the take the the galaxy fetish? I don't know, IG-88's way of proccessing information has issues I'll agree. But, Jango wasn't the sharpest kunai in the ninja toolbet either. And he really isn't a true mandolorian, just a farm boy from Concord Dawn, adopted son of Jaster Mareel. You could say he wears the armor and at least once fought a mando war of his own but...he's more of a wannabe.
Boba and Jango are not the same, that's a fact, Boba's experience as compared to Jango's is much different. In this case I'll say IG, other than that it would end up with both of them getting rid of the other.

Actually, I'd have to agree with Spidey-fett. True, Jango's not as good as Boba, but very darn close. wink

Re: Jango Fett vs. IG-88

Just because you are of a higher rank does not mean that you can tell others what to do. SciFiFreak90 is right, Jango was "skillful" enough to get trampled by a reek. Boba, on the other hand killed the Sarlacc.

Re: Jango Fett vs. IG-88

Were the movies focused on/about the Fetts, Jango would have taken Mace's head off, and Boba would have killed everyone and saved Jabba with one arm behind his back at the Pit of Carkoon.
As George's intended focus lies with the Jedi/Skywalkers, there was really no possibility of a Jedi losing a fight to a non-force user.
Based entirely on the movies, I would, sadly, have to conclude that Jango is a superior fighter than his son (evenly matched duel with Obi-Wan versus getting hit in the back by a blind man and falling into a hole).  Having read most every EU reference pertaining to Fetts activities outside of the movies, and his unparalleled skill, I recognize that he is far superior to his father.  Yet unfortunately for Jango, he cannot get a chance to be resurrected like his son did, as it would be difficult to bring a headless character back into the land of the living.  Regardless of any amount of EU material about his exploits before the movie, he will always pale in comparision to his son, who survived the living death of the Sarlacc.
Similarily, it is impossible to tell how well IG-88 would do against Jango based entirely on the movies; we know nothing about the droids fighting abilities from just one scene.  EU materiel reveals his extensive fighting prowress, and the fact that he is a very well-designed killing machine, with hyperfast reflexes and an arsenal of deadly weaponry.  Should the two of them fight in an entirely unbiased situation, I would see the machine victorious over the meatbag, despite his last name.

One word for you, a word familiar to the priveleged and select few who have read through Steven King's 'Dark Tower' series:

Ka.

The common word most closely related to it, and which may provide the best definition, would be destiny. Or, in the Star Wars universe, the Force. The Force has proven to have at least a vague control over the future, making prophecies happen and so on. What important people need to survive, to put it plainly, survive, so as to play their part in the Force's will. Han Solo, future father of three remarkable Jedi, who also played important roles as the Yuuzhan Vong made themselves known, was in a way a pawn of the Force. Had Boba been allowed to continue, it is without doubt that Luke, Han, Chewie, Leia, and Lando would have all been killed above the sands of the Dune Sea. The Force, destiny, or ka, did not allow that to happen. Just as it forced Anakin to the dark side using his own dreams, 'balanced' the Force in a way the unfortunate Jedi never expected, moved him to pity on his son when he later played the role of Darth Vader, and sent Luke off to Bespin before he could finish his training.

The Force guided that blind man's force pike, clouded Boba's mind for the few moments it took for him to end up in the Sarlacc's bellly, and even arranged the eventual meeting of the fellow hunter Dengar, who saved our beloved anti-hero's life. Boba fell because he needed to fall, and no one can ignore the will of the Force.

All creatures follow the beam, and fall prey to the wind that is ka. Thankee-sai.

Leave the man be True Warrior, he's got more brains than I've seen on this site in a long time. And furthermore, he's got a good point. When I start cursing people out, then you can have an excuse to talk about my language, though I'll rip you a new one just the same. But seeing as I'm not, leave what comes out of my mouth alone, and shut your own.

I've only read the second book so far...can't wait until I have time to read the rest.  Great stuff.

Or from a...different point of view, George Lucas did not allow that to happen. wink
I realize it was necessary, I just think he should have put up a better fight.  My whole argument was that many SW fans assume that Jango is a better fighter than Boba based on what they saw in the movies, while in "reality" Jango is inferior to his progeny.

Wow, that was brilliant, great perspective on that.  I wholeheartedly agree.

Guys, stop arguing.  When the cursing starts to be a disruption, I'll moderate it.  In the meantime, if it offends you, send a private message the Admin or the mods.  Otherwise, I'll continue to assume that it's not a problem.  The BFFC boards are not the appropriate place to have fights or take out your anger, and I know you all have the maturity to recognize that.  We're trying to create a community here, not tear each other down.

Balancesheet, Jango beat obi-wan, it wasn't evenly matched.

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}

Despite who could actually be considered the "winner", as Jango left before Obi-Wan could get back to him, I was referring more to how there was an even exchange of blows during the bulk of the fighting.

Re: Jango Fett vs. IG-88

reasonable enough, I guess the point still stands.
