Review : Jango Fett, Star Wars Black Series

Updated: Nov 25, 2018

Review : Jango Fett (Attack of the Clones) Star Wars Black Series (Hasbro) Wave/Series : Figure #15 (Phase 3 Wave 5 / Wave 1 2016) Released : January 2016

Price : £22.99

Thank you to Kapow Toys, from whom we purchased this figure for review.

Wave 5 of the Black Series, Phase 3, was a scheduled release for 1st January 2016. The wave contained 4 new figures, and a repack of the highly sought after Captain Phasma. The wave signified the first time in Phase 3 that we got a character who was not from The Force Awakens. And it is that figure we look at here. The source of all Clone-kind, Dad of a fan favourite, and the man prone to lose his head in the presence of Samuel L Jackson.

Jango Fett is #15 in the Phase 3 releases. Even though he is not from The Force Awakens, he arrives in identical Phase 3 packaging which cements Hasbro's plan to now integrate figures from all 7 movies and the Rebels TV show into mixed waves going forward. After so many TFA figures in the red & black box since the 4th September, it feels a bit surreal to now see Jango against that intense red backdrop. And I guess it will take a while to sink in.

Jango arrives packed with helmet off. He has a gun packed ready in his right hand, with another packed to the side alongside the helmet. Starting at the top the head sculpt is a really good likeness for Temuera Morrison, and I suspect we will see this head again in the future within some clone releases. Like so many head sculpts though from this wave, the paint job does it no favors. The skin tone is pretty good, but one tone and therefore doesn't pick up the facial details. The eyebrows and eyes are also too heavy handed, looking more cartoonish. The mouth remains unpainted. The hair is quite basic, and looks to be sculpted too far back around the ears. In the movie Jango had the start of sideburns but this sculpt cuts them too high and therefore Jango looks like he has had a run in with a very dodgy hairdresser.
