Another figure of the Fett man. Maybe Hasbro can get this one right and make him at least near-SA.

Would be nice, but he does have a contender for figure to be newly sculpted, in the Clone Trooper.

he needs like SA (working holster for blasters included)just like VOTC Boba Fett!

with removable helmet, inchangeble jetpacks, 2 blasters

removable gun belts would be nice, and maybe that little claw accessory. they need to take all the best features and put it in one figure.

This figure needs leg movement ala at-te tank gunner. Upper body poseability that has ball jointed shoulders, elbows, and waist, swivel wrists, and ball jointed head(s) one from the tank gunner and one with pilot jango features.
The accessories should include grappling laynard, both jetpacks with blast effects, pistols that can be holstered, a sniper rifle with saber darts, removable helmet with working range-finder, and his cloak from the deleted scene in aotc. An ubdated deluxe version would work too if he had removable armor plus everything from above, plus a better scuplted young boba.

Thats exactly what I was thinking, Hasbro might as well reuse the mould with minor changes and wham we've got our SA Jango Fett!

Yeah I'd say were long overdue for a new Jango sculpt. This character seems to be underappreciated in the star Wars universe, perhapse overshadowed by his son. Even if they kit bash it it's still somewhat new. The VOTC boba ia a great place to start.

Jango Fett is one of the characters that most of us have been waiting for a decent figure. I never bought any of the Darth Maul's figures waiting for a kind of VOTC or EVOLUTION, and voil!. Now I'll do the same with Jango, Mace Windu, Padme (non-dressed as Queen), AOTC Obi-Wan, and a few more characters. I'm sure a lot of people is doing the same. If isn't it, I recomend to not buy another re-issue from the Sneak Preview or the AOTC Collection 1. We have to say STOP! At least I'll do it, Hasbro...

Because every wave has 6 or 8 figures. Half of those are repacks. In the Geonosis wave where we're getting 8 figures, three of which are new, the Weequey Jedi, the Comando and the Geonosian leader (Sun.) Now, I will conceed that any of the remaining, Jango, Poggle, 3PO, Yoda and the Clone Trooper could be a resculpt, but the word is that it very well might be Poggle (and only a repaint at that,) which leaves me scratching my head.

Your "logic" might be a little off. Sun Fac may be the repack here of the Geo warrior with a new breast plate. I would prefer that and get a new SA Jango. PLEASE HASBRO!!!!!!

I would not count on it. For some reason Hasbro thinks that a SA figure has to be something "special" and put in packaging that will end up being more expensive. Such as the Evolutions and VOTC packaging. They really don't like putting them in single packs for $5.50.

They most likely won't repaint the VOTC Fett as a new Jango and slap it on the Saga card. Even though that is a logical choice IMO.

BennyDarkness
10-21-2005, 04:58 PM
boba and jango do have slight differnces in armor, so if they were gonna make a repainted votc boba, it wouldn't be completely accurate, but still cool i guess.

It appears, ladies and gentlemen, that it will indeed be a repack. My guess is the old fireball-firing no-knees Geonosian version. They already dug out the mold for a battle pack.

Ah well.

Neal
10-29-2005, 09:44 AM
You do all realize that Jango's armor isn't exactly like Boba's, so a straight VOTC repaint wouldn't be correct, right?
I agree that it's a sculpt they should start with, but there would be some necessary retooling. And you know that a lot of you would complain about the accuracy if they did simply repaint the VOTC Boba. I don't want a VOTC repaint ... I want an all-new sculpt for Jango that's even better than the VOTC sculpt.

Short of SA, this one's got probably the best of what everyone wants: removable helmet (which could be done better, and likely will when he gets an SA upgrade with ball-joint (NON-tank-gunner!) head; dual pistols with functioning holsters; rocket-firing backpack. Works for me! Also his grappling hook is easily cut off, leaving a decent looking preposed limited-artic figure. The Sneak Preview one's got too much of a "statuesque" pose, and the Arena Battle one just got rehashed, has no holsters, and that gawky flame-thrower launcher thing.

He needs a simple SA treatment, ala VOTC Boba. Ball-joints everywhere but wrists & torso, removable helmet w/ pivoting rangefinder (cast the helmet in hard plastic, please), 2 pistols, 2 jetpacks, and MAYBE something like a stream of plastic fire that's got a peg that sticks unobtrusively into his gauntlet.

Neal

This sculpt of Jango was great ... for it's time. It just doesn't hold up any more and it's definitely not the type of sculpt this character is worthy of.

Darth_Tedious
11-08-2005, 02:33 PM
I posted this in the "Hasbro announces..." thread, but it works here too.

I personally would have settled for re-packs/paints for every figure in this wave if it meant getting an SA or at least well articulated Jango.

11-08-2005, 03:15 PM
Well its not bad but the removable helment could of made to look better but I'll probably still pick it up.

When I said "works for me!" before, I didn't mean to imply I'd buy this http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif I just think it's the best all-around Jango they could've chosen for a repack. Kids'll love it, at least.

If those Cinema Scene 2-packs ever materialize, perhaps we'll get an SA Jango Fett vs. SA Mace Windu? Mace could have a soft-goods robe, Jango could come with both jetpacks for the heck of it. His "removable head" feature will simply be "pop head off neck ball"

If Hasbro expects us to all buy a Jango Fett, then they should have thought twice before repacking one. Even if they would have repacked the Arena Battle version, I would be more pleased than I am with this one.

mrmforceX
11-08-2005, 08:18 PM
I think that it's a little premature to panick on this one. Remember the official Hasbro pic of the new SAGA 06 Boba Fett was the straight repack of the SAGA 04 Boba. The figure it's self turned out to be a retooling of the SAGA and VOTC version making it a really cool figure.
I'm hoping that there will be some retooling with Jango as well.

Toonimator
11-08-2005, 09:12 PM
I don't see any hope for a retool kitbash save here. None of the other Jangos really have anything great to offer.

if you don't have a Jango yet, this is fine. Unless you're holding out for a great one; then keep on waiting!!! Be patient, '07 or unknown items in '06 may surprise us. Kids'll get it, completists will get it, and new collectors who don't wanna wait will get it, I think.

Boba was a retool? did he have bending elbows and knees then?

He is the SAGA 2004 sculpt waist up with a new rocket, and the VOTC legs (so yes bendable knees and ankles).

11-09-2005, 01:34 AM
I wouldn't hold out much hope for changes on this figure. I knew there would be rehashes, but I figured they would make a new Jango with better articulation. I see this one moving slower than he could have.

Although this does give us hope that later waves will have more new sculpts, although it's still sad that Hasbro did not make a new Jango sculpt.

The removable helmet's one of the GOOD points about this sculpt. I'm all about removable headgear on my SW figures, provided they fit well. A bit too much neck shows on this figure which is a downer, and the helmet itself is kinda wimpy plastic, but that's the main reason I picked up this Jango 3 years ago instead of the others... firing rocketpack & holsters was another http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I'm sure Hasbro noticed the VOTC Boba Fett was a hit, and how big Clone Troopers are; an SA Jango with all the bells & whistles is a natural to do, it's just a matter of time.

Writing Hasbro at this point is pointless. They know what they are doing. They're throwing us some bones by giving us some great new figures and making money by rehashing old ones. This Fett is going to sell, dispite how many people here dislike it and I think it's only a matter of time before everyone gets the Jango of their dreams.

Aaaah! Why is everyone here so hypocritical?!? These are just toys, they're meant to be fun! It's just a hobby! Now I'm not saying that hasbro couldn't have given us better, but give em' a break, have you seen the Republic Commando? I'll buy the whole line just as thanks for that! Well I for one am just going to enjoy the line and not judge it. Besides there really isn't a better jango to repack, and a Boba re-tool would have looked silly, know why? Because if you put the two figures side-by-side they wouldn't look different enough, they'd just look like what they would be: RE-PAINTS. I think that's why they didn't just retool a previous figure in the first place is because it would have looked stupid. I'm getting this guy for two reasons: 1) Just to not conform to all this criticism and 2) because I'm a completist. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Lord_Atmo
11-10-2005, 10:17 PM
Republic commando sounds like a fun game from what i've heard. the figure seems a but odd though. the game would have been a better hit had it not just been for the XBRICK. but back to the main topic. i'd also kill for a SA Jango. you can throw out any SA figure on the shelves and i'll buy it instantly. too bad Jango will never be released in VOTC. not until a "VPTC" comes out. this is going to be a looooooong 30 years...

The new figure that is coming out looks just like the old one(s), junky. They should make a version of jango that is like the votc version of boba fett (one of the most best figures ever.) It should include the 2 jetpacks (NOT WITH THE REMOVABLE/ SHOOTING MISSLE), 2 blasters that fit into a holster (make a better style of doing it, the old version sucks), a very small wipcord (or no whipcord just use floss), and A BETTER STYLE OF A REMOVABLE HLMET. This would be a topseller.

Thats b/c this Fett is a rehash. It is old. If they do a new Janjo, it better be a new sculpt. Jango and Boba look nothing alike, (aside the face and helmet) their armor is completly different. Hasblow dissapoints once again, but thats old news.

I never had a problem with this particular Jango figure, and it does look nice carded. I passed on it the first time around, so itll be a nice addition now. Hopefully sometime next year will get a new one

Everyone likes to equate repacks with pegwarming (which is a term that I use lightly, as pegwarming is all relative to your geographic location and collector demand) and that's simply not always the case. The proof's in the pudding:

Carkoon Wave - harder to find
Boba Fett - kit-bash
Barada - repack
Chewbacca - modified repack
Carkoon Wave - easier to find
Leia - new sculpt
Bib Fortuna - new sculpt
Han Solo - new sculpt
Hoth Wave - harder to find
R2-D2 - repack
Darth Vader - repack
Power Droid - modified repack
Snowtrooper - kit-bash
Hoth Wave - easier to find
General Veers - new sculpt
Major Derlin - new sculpt
Geonosis Wave - harder to find
ALL OF THEM!!

I tell ya another Jango Fett figure that they can make, why not make the Jango Fett seen standing in the Geonosian war room. He's wearing a poncho like garment reminiscent of early Ralph McQuarrie designs for Boba Fett, the color scheme is very similar to the cape that Boba wears on his left side. They've made every other variant of Jango, why not this one?

i think i understand now

this line should not be filled with awesome and SA figures, then what will hasbro have left to make for the next line? gotta save SOMETHING. in the upcoming years, i wouldnt be surprised if a whole new SA line was released. SW's popularity will go down without the hype of future movies. the license will lose value, and better, more articulated figures will be made.

tch..I'M KIDDING MYSELF!

only in a perfect world i guess. but i wouldnt be surprised if we got an SA Jango in the future. we can't have everything awesome come in one line. what would we get for the next years ahead? more transformers?

VaderUnleashed
03-03-2006, 08:15 PM
I don't like the fact that he has about as much articulation as a McFarlane figure, but I always thought he "looked" decent. Except of course for the ugly patch of neck showing underneath the helmet and the stupid "rope" on his arm.

May have to do some customizing, to bad OTC Boba's are...well...gone.

Commandacody
03-07-2006, 09:25 AM
I got all excited months ago when this figure was announced, only to get the air sucked out of me when I heard of a re-pack. I agree, all of the Jangos are half crap, with the pilot Jango being the most useless of the bunch. Hasbro will probably trump this by putting out a Jango Fett (Kamino lounge outfit) figure. No armor, no guns, just him in his blue parachute outfit holding a martini glass.

Yes you can see the neck on BOTH versions (since it is the exact same figure).

I'm just suprised that this fig has not peg warmed. Took me a while to find a carded one, and at Wizard World yesterday I saw ALL of the Geo wave A LOT and yet very few Jango's. In fact at the MEGA SCALPER's booth (the only guy selling the Coruscant wave), I heard at least 3 people ask the price of Jango-while taking NO intrest in Cody or the firespeeder pilot.

Strange how a repacked fig pops up in popularity. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Like I've said before, he's a Fett that is packed one-per-case. Plus, he's a figure that we haven't seen at retail in awhile. I'm not surprised at all that he's hard to find ... though he is becoming easier to find now. With these revision cases hitting hard over the weekend, I saw quite a few Jango's on the pegs.

I think Cody is almost vintage quality, but without its standard of articulation. That leads me to Jango, which will probably be down in the basic format. So yeah, we can expect a great sculpt, with probably mediocre articulation. I hope I'm wrong.

Well,I only saw Jango once in my area,pcked him up.Never saw him again.Then again,Geo wave never did hit here in full force. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gifSo to me,yes.





yeah, he's rare, but I don't care http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif





Yeah, Only saw him once.





saw him plenty. In fact saw him this past sunday. Would have bought him if not for the poor articulation, crappy grappling line with no place to go, and psychedelic coloring of his jet pack. Other than that --great figure http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif





I finally saw this last week. Didn't even know he's hard to find in some areas. I thought at first it was Boba Fett in the Carkoon asst.
I bought the only one on the peg so I can open it and put him next to Darth Maul and Gen. Grievous. I want loose figs of the most memorable icons for each Prequel. Never mind about his multi-colored jetpack. I can dig it.





i'd say boba's way harder to find, but i bought the galactic hunt version. maybe i should consider buying that jango that's just sitting over at kb http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif





my wm only got one case of geonosis. i grabbed one of each except scorch who was already gone. that was the only time i've seen jango.





Do you have the jango with the magnet attached to his head and neck? from what I can see from the archives- he seems to be the best articulated jango. Only great thing about the saga jango is the detachable helmet and nice head sculpt.





If seen him once or twice but since then he has disappeared from the pegs. I have that Jango,its a piece of crap in my opinion.Just stay with the one thats currently on the pegs.





you re opinion is much appreciated. I was thinking about throwing money on that fig..thanks again



When the wave was first released here Jango was pretty common but now I dont see him at all.Been and gone as they'd say.

Jango Fett has an excuse for not selling very well: He hasn't yet had a truly good figure.
