OK I know Boba was Jango's clone so he's technically the same guy, but which one do you guys like better?

I prefer Jango personally because his uniform looks cooler, his blaster weilding abilities are more advanced, and he actually USED his rocket!

I'm still partial to Boba Fett. He was the original Fett (at least in "real world" time), and I've always liked the look of him just a bit better than Jango.

Im more the Boba fan too.
I liked seeing Jango, As these were moves Boba would of used.
Plus there was more of a aura(?) built up around Boba, Jango was more like Hello/Goodbye http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif
I liked seeing Slave one doing it's stuff, Wish there was more of that...

Neither is interesting anymore, never have been for me. Fancy armour, granted, but beyond that... nah.

Jango and the whole Boba story in AOTC have effectively destroyed that mystique surrounding Boba Fett as he was in the OT.

Still, hugely overrated. IMO off course.

Boba Fett. Jango exists merely due to Boba's popularity. Had Boba Fett not garnered so much popularity/merchandising appeal to the fans, Jango wouldn't be the daddy for the clones or Boba anyway. Boba was the first and most original of these two bounty hunters. The colors of Boba's outfit and the worn battle scarred look of it also looked better to me than Jango's clean and chromey look. I also don't care for Jango's tiny hand guns.

Not that I was a fan of Boba Fett anyway. He was just a very tertiary character in the last two OT films who barely spoke or did anything and then got killed by a blind Han Solo by accident. Pathetic character, IMO. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Though my dislike of Jango Fett basically comes more from the universal coinicidences that Lucas likes to stuff into the Star Wars movies. Which I'm definitely not fond of. I could stomach Vader being Luke's father. The rest of the coincidences, such as Leia being Luke's sister, Anakin living his early days on Tattoine like Luke, Anakin creating C-3PO, R2-D2 being the droid of Luke and Leia's mom Padme, and of course Boba Fett's daddy being the original gene donor for the Republic's clone army go too far for me. One universal coincidence was enough. The rest make me sick.

Boba used his rockets in ROTJ. Han also used Boba's rockets. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Hard to say which one is better. They both go out like punks.

Uhm... isn't a missile a rocket-propelled projectile?

And doesn't Boba Fett, and Jango, have a rocket-pack? So.... what missile? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

I have always like Boba better. The chump who portrayed young Boba was terrible though. I like Jeremy Bulloch's Boba Fett.

Wow. Okay if you look at the rocket pack they wear, there is a missle sticking out of the top. In AOTC, Jango fires this missle at Obi-Wan on Kamino. Boba never uses this feature in the OT

As opposed to rocket-pack (aka jet-pack) which enables him to fly (just like Commando Cody...yikes...now I've really confused most of you http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif)

Well, the bit was about Boba in ROTJ, there was no missile there.

Boba uses the SAME rocket/jet pack that Jango used, though painted differently, and yes, there IS a missle on it in ANH, ESB, AND ROTJ. And the bit is actually about which character the fans consider to be better.

...who hides in the garbage.
...who transports a slab.
...who nods at Boussh.
...who goes careening into the sail barge.
...who gets eaten by a hole.
and don't forget that SE scene showing him boogie-down. I think I despise that scene as much as ANY other SE scene.

But I still like him better than Jango. He was supposed to be a Bounty Hunter, but he really was just a hit man.

A Hitman who didn't like to get his hands dirty.

I dunno myself, I liked the mystery of Boba, but now that gone out the window I guess Jango has the better eyecandy action scenes, and thats all there is to like abotu the Fetts now. I'm probably gonna get my OT loving ***** flamed there, but If I was an 8yr old I'd probably pick Jingle Fett, Y'know?

boba rocks mostly because of the mystery around him in the OT
i'm glad he was used to tie the PT and OT together but i'd rather had liked to see jedi abttling mandalorian armies

Lol, You think I would let them get their hands anywhere near thy holy figures? They are high up, plus they know the code of the jedi :P

Better try to steer this back on track, Uh My fav Boba moment is ESB, When Luke watches Boba and Co walk past.
Sigh..What's that? all of 2 mins?

I think Jangos armour looks better than Bobas some how, but I feel I have a loyalty to Boba as, along with Chewy, was my favourite character for most of my Star Wars childhood.

Boba has to get my vote!!

Commander Cody doesn't fly in ROTS. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif I'll have to go with Jango Fett mainly because he played an important part in the film and delivered more then Boba did in the whole OT. Boba is just a overhyped character who really didn't anything major except for dying. Cool costume but nothing more then eye candy.

I still like Boba better. Cause he has that pretty [censored] up armor, that kinda says "I went through hell and back a several times and I am still alive" http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Jangos armor instead tells me just "Uhhh I am dirty, please clean and polish me again." Way to steril for a bounty hunter IMO. Could also fit into the "Clean" Trek univere http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Other than that, there are just way more ,and IMO pretty cool, EU-stories about Boba. That adds a lot to me. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Jango just edges about Boba. Better use of weapons and he dies a way better death than "screming Boba".

I prefer Boba cause he looks more dangerous, he had many enemies, and he has a "get the hell outta here" style.

I like Boba Fett better. He was my original favorite character and still is. He seems to be better. Plus if you count spinoff fiction at least he's still alive! And he has the best Fett toy--the VOTC. And one of his figures is still the holy grail of Sw-vintage rocket firing Fett.

I have to go with Boba Fett, just cause he's the original. One of my favorite things about the prequels so far is the explanation Boba's origin and his connection to the clones. Very cool IMO, and there's still plenty of mystery surrounding his character. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Heh...that's one of my least favorite things about AOTC. I guess its like that Twilight Zone episode (or was it Night Gallery?).
