Flacksguy said:I wasn't to excited about this figure when I first heard about it, but it is quickly becoming one of my favorites of the entire line. I love figures that are versatile, in that you can display them in different ways or different scenes. You have "apartment Jango" without armour or poncho,
Jango with armour and no poncho, or
Jango with armour and poncho. Plus the articulation is there, the sculpt is awesome and paint is fantastic.
What a great job on this figure. Definately one I need to get multiples of.
Use a small piece of double sided tape and that will keep it together. You might have some glue residue that is keeping the belt from staying together. Also I just swapped out this head:DarthHavok1 said:coybrafett said:Picked up this guy at wal-mart for $4.94 and what a figure. The belt is in fact glued together but is not hard to get it apart.

I got the belt off. I didn't boil, or run it through hot water as you say do. I was real careful when I pulled it apart, but now, I'm having trouble getting it to stay together. I may have damaged it, but I can't tell. It's probably no big deal. You can't tell it's loose with the poncho on. When the poncho is off I'll probably display him with out the belt. Still, nice figure. My favorite Jango to date.
Hey we have something in common. I payed 10 bucks for it too!Nirvana said:I picked him up as well at my area toy show for 10 dollars. I didn't think it was that bad of a price, and I figured I probably wouldn't see it in stores anyway.
Oh yes, I love the cloak, it's a welcoming change, and when you soak it in water, it looks very nice! But something funny is, my belt "didn't have glue", it just "fell off" - anyone with the same situation? (And I don't want it offMandalorianKid said:I'm glad they didn't use the same old crappy fuzzy kinda crap they use for the jedi robes. As for the belt being removed? I pulled the tab slowly and it came apart nicely. the glue is rather rubbery and comes apart easily. It dosn't stay the best afterwords. But if u jsut want to see it without the belt and thne out it ba ck on and display it it should be fine. If u plan on handeling it alot and hopeing the belt stays latched ur outta luck.
The belt will go back on if you remove the tab glue, but it might not stay clasped if you move the legs. I do agree that this figure is the greatest of 07. The only thing I would have changed is the head which I have:KillerVole said:I got two of these guys today, and he is by far my favorite figure this year. I love the gear, and I love the great articulation. The only problem I had was that the stitching burst on the right arm of one Jango's poncho; still, it was a two minute fix with some blue thread, so it wasn't a problem.
Has anyone had any luck getting the belt to hold together after removing it? I don't want to yank mine off if it won't go back on well.
Lord_Atmo said:hey where did you get those gauntlet parts?
Yeah, the helmet included fits a bit snug and does not want to go all the way down. I was thinking about performing a minor surgery on an older jango figure and cutting about mid-way through the forearm to enable this new jango to have swappable arms. Kind of a tough choice as I only have about 7 other jangos.KillerVole said:I just dug out my set of gauntlets, and they don't fit on the figure at all. Too bad. The jetpack from Kamino Escape Jango (the one that was rereleased last year) fits decently, if a bit loosely, on this Jango. No other Jango helmet will fit at all.

Total VOTC/VTSC quality. Top notch all the way.
I don't understand all the hate for this figure. I feel he is pretty darn cool and so unlike anything else we have. Personally, I think it's kinda cool to get such an off the wall Jango. The softgoods and the armor are both done well. As in the sculpt on his shirt underneath.
Glad I found him. Even more glad I picked him up.
