Jango Fett senses that Obi-Wan Kenobi will want to ask him more questions – questions he doesn't want to answer – so the bounty hunter and his son, Boba, head for their ship, Slave I, to escape. When Obi-Wan finds them, a terrible battle ensues. Jango is always well-armed and uses his missile-firing jet backpack during the fight,

There have been more than just a few incarnations of Jango Fett as an action figure since this character made its debut in 2002's Power Of The Jedi line as a Sneak Preview figure. That was a fine figure for the time, and now technology has taken this character’s design to a whole new and exciting level. Some iterations end up turning out better than others, but we have to concede that most Jango Fett action figures generally have looked great throughout the years. Although imperfect, one of the greatest updates to Jango Fett was found in 2008’s TAC The Fett Legacy Evolutions multipack. It was the first time we received a super-articulated version of the character, and for the most part it really delivered where it was needed most. And because of this it has become a staple in collector focused lines. The latest reuse of this figure can be found in the partially canceled 2013 Star Wars [Yoda/Attack Of The Clones] Movie Heroes line, a line of figures that never made it to the USA. An international exclusive of sorts, Jango Fett is part of a wave of figures that most of us already own in one fashion or another. This time however Hasbro changed up the figure and made it specific to Kamino. It’s sort of like the direction they took with 2011’s TVC Jango Fett (VC34) figure, but without the retooling and alternate jet backpack. This time we get the same old 2008 TAC The Fett Legacy Evolutions figure with the accessories from 2002’s SW [S - P1] Jango Fett (Kamino Escape) (’02 #13) figure. It’s an alright figure for a collector, but it will likely go over very well with the younger kids.

The first time this figure was released as a single carded figure was in The Legacy Collection basic figure. Jango Fett (BD 51) was released in a rare “remix/revision” case and not many people were fortunate to find him at retail. The same figure was then repackaged as 2009’s LC Jango Fett (BD15) figure, but even that case assortment proved difficult to locate for many collectors. Now this version of the figure as a single-carded basic figure may be the rarest version of all. The figure itself is a slight (very slight) repaint of the figure from the Evolutions sets. But please don’t be alarmed because the figure isn’t much different and in all honesty it can barely even be classified as a slight repaint. Jango Fett succeeds as a toy. The figure is articulated very well and can stand unassisted relatively easily. The jet backpack fits tightly in the hole on his back and both his holsters and hands can accommodate his Westar-34 blaster pistols. He also comes with a removable helmet. It’s a tight fit for the figure, but it looks great on his head. Oh, and his jet backpack comes with a projectile that has been shaped to be the rocket on the het backpack too. It would have been nice if Hasbro included an additional rocket plug, but we have to remember that the Movie Heroes line is for kids, and Hasbro will focus on play features with these figures first. While not entirely perfect, Jango Fett is nonetheless a fun action figure and will offer kids some great play value even if collectors aren’t offered much at all from a collectible perspective. It is what it is we suppose.

Paint operations are about average when it comes to Jango Fett. There is much debate on the actual color of his costume. We see purple clearly in Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones, but other fans just see blue. Many collectors still want to see Hasbro change the purple color of the jumpsuit part of his uniform to more of an indigo blue color. But Hasbro hasn’t done any aggressive paint operation updates on this release of Jango Fett. If you’re willing to accept that this version of Jango Fett is a kids’ figure, then you probably will be able to look at it more fondly. But if you weigh what Movie Heroes is bringing to retail (many, many inferior action figures), Jango Fett is almost collector quality by comparison. So few of the other figures in the Movie Heroes line come with this many points of articulation. The biggest difference between 2012 Movie Heroes figures and 2013 Movie Heroes figures is that the latter no longer come with the pack-in premiums. Hasbro unceremoniously canceled the Galactic Battle Game so Jango Fett doesn’t come with a card, display stand or die. With an average MSRP of $10.99, you’re paying more for less. It’s not a good sign. The line is canceled in America. It comes with less “stuff”. And these figures are the most expensive kids’ figures to date. We miss the Saga Legends line. Saga Legends appealed to both the kids’ market as well as the collectors’ market. And if collectors aren’t content or happy with the line, we’re not going to spend money on these figures. Plus, with so few figures in a line anymore, the selection and variety is at all all-time low as well.
