* Not only is Jango Fett as well articulated as any other Black Series figure but he's actually even more so! Because of his gauntlets and the wires that run from them to his shoulders, Jango has the additional articulation points of a bicep swivel and forearm swivels. This is a great figure for posing and playing around with and I've been having a blast with him.
* Jango's armor and flight suit look incredible! Not only is the sculpting accurate but the paintwork is far above the flat colors we see on many of Hasbro's figures. The heavy dry-brushing on Jango's armor and gauntlets looks really nice and gives the figure a very weathered and rugged appearance. I love all of Jango's armaments are included, down to the rocket-dart launchers on his kneepads.
* Like an old west gunfighter, Jango Fett likes to keep his dual blaster pistols on his hips. The WESTAR-34 blasters fit nicely in the holsters and the belt and attached utility pouches look pretty sharp. The holsters and belt aren't removable but they are separate pieces that can shift around a bit to look better in certain poses.
Boba Fett would later famously wield. The jetpack depicted here, however, is the one that Jango uses on Geonosis during his fatal confrontation with Mace Windu. It's a smaller, more heavily armored pack and it looks great. Not only is the sculpt and paintwork great on this bad boy but it also stays firmly attached to Jango's back. It should be noted that Jango and Boba's jetpacks are not interchangeable.
* Rather than an interchangeable helmeted head, Jango Fett comes with a removable helmet. I think it looks pretty slick and appropriately proportioned. Sometimes removable helmets look too large but this one seems just right to me. Plus you can have Jango hold it as an accessory if you want, which is harder to due with an actual swappable head.
* There's one problem with this figure and it's not the Temuera Morrison headsculpt, which is really pretty good: It's the crazy eyebrows. They just look so fake and awkward. You can even kind of see where the eyebrows are sculpted but paintwork is just a giant stamp over them. Maybe Elaine drew these eyebrows on Jango, just like she drew on Uncle Leo's eyebrows.
