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.
