Baylee Alger is a blind man who has a deep love of collecting and reading. He has been blind since the age of 2 due to cancer on his optic nerves. He loves to play drums, fish, and above all, read books. He loves playing video games, and writing reviews for AFJ are one of his favorite pastimes as well. When not collecting, reading or pursuing his lifelong dream of being a writer, he'll often be watching movies, such as Batman, Spider-Man, and the occasional comedy.
In a galaxy of smugglers, thieves, and politicians, one name reigns supreme: Fett. Boba Fett, to be exact. But, he is not the first of his name. His father, Jango Fett, killed in the early days of the Clone Wars by Mace Windu, was a bounty hunter like no other.
And today, we're taking a look at his Black Series figure. So, let's begin the Star Wars: The Black Series: Jango Fett, "A Hands On Review".
Let me just start by saying this figure is extremely, extremely fragile. I went through two of them before I got one that was displayable enough, but it was well worth the hunt. Jango Fett is a heavily armored powerhouse, and he's brilliant to boot.
This figure was amazing. I love how many accessories he has and what you can do with him. I've always loved figures you can remove the helmet of, and this is one of them. His helmet must have been the inspiration for those of the clone troopers, because the face guard feels exactly the same, right up to the side antenna.
His upper torso is relatively featureless, which is fine. His armor is practical. It gets the job done. His jetpack is also detachable, which I thought was great. It gives him a wider range of posability.
His gauntlets give the image of power, for there are wires feeding into them, which I imagine are used to transfer power to fire wrist rockets. The gauntlets are certainly bulky enough to store them.
He comes with two belted holsters, each able to hold one of his twin blasters. Those both feel rather fragile as well, but they fit into his hands very easily.
All in all, this figure is fantastic. Definitely worth the money, but you do have to be very careful with it which takes a lot of the enjoyment out of it for me. But, all in all, I'm still very satisfied.
