Ten years after the fight to save the 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.
Hasbro created a special set of four individually carded Sneak Preview figures of characters that appear in Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones. One of the more interesting of the four is Jango Fett, who plays an important role in Episode II. Many of the characters in this film are surrounded in mystery. Hasbro was sure to forever preserve their mysteries and unknown identifies in plastic forever, especially with the release of the Sneak Preview lineup. Jango Fett, who is evidently tied to Boba Fett, is the figure creating the most interest in Star Wars collectors. The figure is a little bit exaggerated, but still looks pretty good overall. He is positioned in a very aggressive action stance. He comes with an arsenal of gear and weaponry, but not much else is revealed in this action figure. There isn’t a removable helmet and there aren’t any telltale signs that this character may be anything more or less than a bounty hunter, a role Boba Fett shared in the Original Trilogy. Much like Zam Wesell, Jango Fett is another bounty hunter in Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones, and has a sculpt that confirms he's bred from a hive of scum and villainy. He looks really good, even though his sculpt is limited in its articulation. Besides, other things make this figure more interesting as well, like the great sculpt (in spite of its articulation) and a wonderful paint job.
Jango Fett comes with six points of articulation. These points are made up of a swivel head, two swivel shoulders, a swivel waist and two swivel hips. Clearly this action figure is lacking in this aspect. Much of this figure’s articulation is rendered useless (like the hips) because the figure needs its feet flat on the ground to balance itself. We suppose that the articulation in the hips allows the collector to securely place “both feet on the ground”, but it’s not like you can make this figure look like it’s walking or anything remotely similar. The two swivel shoulders work well for creating an aiming pose. As you raise them up from Jango Fett’s body they meet closely together when completely horizontal and when you place the two Westar-34 blaster pistols in his hands (with or without the included blast effects) it is reminiscent of something from the Wild West. Jango Fett looks great in this pose and we think that Hasbro did a great job here overall. Jango Fett also comes with a removable jetpack. The design and paint job its received is excellent and colorful respectively. Collectors should find that this action figure has merit as it truly is a well developed action figure, and another shining star of the quartet of Sneak Preview figures, even if it isn’t super-articulated.
