Star Wars: Bounty Hunter follows Jango Fett, the most fearsome bounty hunter in the galaxy, as he pursues an unhinged Dark Jedi named Komari Vosa.

It’s unreal that more than four years passed us by from the original 2016 release of The Black Series [Phase III] 6” Jango Fett (15) figure. To change things up a bit, Hasbro gave the figure all new paint operations, including Photo Real facial updating. Jango Fett looks better than the first release now. But more importantly, Hasbro added the Mitronomon Z-6 jetpack for the first time with the GameStop exclusive “Gaming Greats” release. While this figure is based from the Star Wars: Bounty Hunter video game, the figure is also sourced to Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones. 2020’s TBS [P3] Jango Fett is a retool and repaint of 2016’s TBS [P3] Jango Fett (15) figure. This time, the portrait comes with a beautiful new Photo Real deco. We get the same removable helmet and Westar-34 blaster pistols that the original release has, but they’ve also been repainted. The most notable change to the paint operations is visible on the figure’s outfit. The purple jumpsuit no longer comes with a white wash on it, and the silver body armor isn’t speckled with wear or dirt either. The dirt was probably because of the character’s scuffle (and eventual death) on Geonosis. The figure is looking clean for this release. The Mitronomon Z-6 jetpack is colorful, and it fits the figure perfectly. Overall, we’re pleased to see this second release of Jango Fett updated with a new accessory. It was a disappointment not getting the other jetpack with the original release, but as with anything, hindsight is twenty-twenty, and getting Jango Fett four years later a second time paid off much for collectors of the line.

Jango Fett is nearly the same throughout the entire duration of Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones. It is the periodic change of headgear or jetpack that gives Jango scene-specific uniqueness. With a second release, you’d think that Hasbro would have included both jetpacks for the re-release of Jango Fett, but they didn’t, and we’re disappointed by this decision. Perhaps a “Deluxe” version of Jango Fett would be ideal, but now that we have both jetpacks, our point may now be moot. This particular release is Jango Fett from the character’s encounter with Obi-Wan Kenobi on Kamino. But, and for obvious reasons, it’s also one of the ways Jango Fett looks in the Star Wars: Bounty Hunter video game. In our opinion, giving this to GameStop as their exclusive and sourcing the figure to the video game is a little bit lazy. This version of Jango Fett would have been ideal in the recent “Attack Of The Clones” wave and may have made up for the shortcuts taken with Kit Fisto and Plo Koon. But they thought it made the most sense as a retailer exclusive release. Out of the two figures released of Jango Fett, this one is significantly more definitive than the 2016 release. We all knew back in 2016 that this figure had a superb likeness, but now Photo Real proves it. The skin tone is smooth like a baby’s bottom, and Jango’s infamous scar is gone on this release.

Years ago, early prototypes gave the illusion that Jango Fett was too chunky. But Jango Fett is exceptionally streamlined and looks to be proportionate to the on-screen character. The figure can be posed in various ways, but the black wires around the elbows do not have enough slack and continuously pop out where they attach to the figure. And although the shoes are curved upwards ever so slightly, balancing is not an issue. Jango Fett comes with a removable helmet. We were concerned that it looked too small for the figure’s head, but it fits like a glove. And it looks perfect when wearing it. We all know how difficult it is to make believable removable helmets, but Hasbro has impressively succeeded here. They deserve praise for getting this right. We would have loved to see Hasbro add an articulated rangefinder, but they followed the same protocol as Boba Fett and decided against it, and it’s a disappointment. You know about the jetpack, and it plugs nicely into three slots on the figures back. There are two higher rectangular slots, and the main center rounded plug. The jetpack stays firmly in place and isn’t easily removed unless you want to take it off of the figure. Jango Fett comes with a beautifully tooled belt with attached holsters that also connect to the legs. We have to admit how beautiful this belt/holster combination piece is. The two Westar-34 blaster pistols can be housed in them when not in use. Jango Fett looks incredibly posed with these accessories, and you have a wide range of options.
