Ten years after the fight to save Naboo from invasion, the galaxy is on the brink of civil war. Under the leadership of a renegade Jedi, thousands of solar systems threaten to secede from the Galactic Republic. A courageous Jedi Knight, his impulsive and headstrong apprentice, and a queen-turned-senator are drawn into the heart of the conflict... and the beginning of war.
The bounty hunter Jango Fett is a shrewd mercenary mysteriously linked to the growing Separatist army and the unexplained assassination attempts on Senator Amidala. Armed with dual pistols and a jet backpack, he is always prepared for dangerous confrontations. Jango is equally as dangerous in space as he pilots his modified starship, Slave I, to capture or destroy anything that gets in the way.
Whenever you have a new Star Wars film with a new villain, it typically translates into multiple action figure versions of that villainous character. That’s exactly what happened with Jango Fett in the Star Wars “Saga” line. Not only was he a Sneak Preview figure at the tail end of the Power Of The Jedi line in early 2002, but no less than three unique versions of him were released between 2002 and 2004 in the Star Wars “Saga” line, in addition to multiple releases of the same sculpt as well. It was near the end of 2002 however that we got the third and final unique sculpt of the character, and frankly it was one Star Wars fans were hoping to receive much earlier than they did. Jango Fett (Slave I Pilot) gives us the version of the bounty hunter with his helmet off and his headset on to guide the Slave I deep into the reaches of space. It’s a different look for the freelance bounty hunter, and frankly a necessary one for the toy line. After all, collectors had to wait months after the release of Jango Fett’s Slave I before they could accurately pilot it, so the late release was welcomed regardless. The figure itself may not meet every collectors’ expectations. There is an action feature which really ruins the figure’s aesthetics, but the head sculpt is fantastic and that’s all you really need to see piloting the vehicle anyway.
Jango Fett (Slave I Pilot) is an all-new figure. This is a bit of a surprise for us. Hasbro has developed quite a few unique body sculpts for Jango Fett already, so developing an all-new sculpt, while appreciated, may have not been completely necessary. Jango Fett (Slave I Pilot) comes with an action feature. When you push down on the rocket on his jetpack, his arms go up in a “quick draw” fashion. He also comes with two Westar-34 blaster pistols (his only accessories interestingly enough) and Hasbro has graciously sculpted functioning holsters for them when not in use. These “storage compartments” may be the nicest additions to this action figure. Aside from the obvious (and loose) swivel shoulders, Jango Fett (Slave I Pilot) also comes with swivel biceps, a swivel waist and swivel hips. It’s not the best array of movement, but it is enough to make him a very viable pilot to his Slave I vehicle. His posture is pretty basic. You can’t really sense any sort of attitude by his stature alone. Simple works best her. After all, you’re going to want an erectly standing body type to easily fit into a tiny cockpit space for ease of flying the vehicle, so no complaints there either. This action figure has been made for really only one purpose, and he serves that purpose very well.
