Jango all the way!

Today, I'm going to talk about a nearly 20 year old action figure from Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.

Jango Fett was introduced in Attack of the Clones, having been tasked with the assassination of Queen Amidala, as well as being the template for the secret clone army being built by the Republic.  Oh, and he's also the "father" of Boba Fett, the original trilogy's most effective and popular bounty hunter. It sounds like Jango is quite the multi-tasker. Unlike his son, Jango actually saw enough screen time to do some bad ass stuff, including holding his own against Obi-Wan Kenobi in a rather amazing duel. He'd eventually lose his head to another Jedi before the end of the flick, but he still looked good doing it. At least he wasn't accidentally knocked off a sail barge into the toothy maw of a giant living stomach by a half-blind, scruffy looking smuggler.

And, like any other character in a Star Wars movie that was onscreen for more than a few seconds, Jango Fett has had a couple dozen action figures made of him. I think they could have stopped with this one, because it's easily my favorite and, dare I say, the best Star Wars action figure ever made.
