Sideshow Jango Fett, not quite the simple man ... ...

Jango Fett, a bounty hunter, not by birth or choice but by fate. He was adopted by Madalorian warriors since young after the murder of his parents. That explains his outfit which is modeled after the warriors of Madalore. Soon, he became a bounty hunter and later agreed to be the genetic template for the clones for the Grand Army of the Republic.

His son, Boba Fett carried on Jango's legacy as a bounty hunter and sporting a cooler updated suit. Read the review on Sideshow Boba Fett here.

I shall skip the uninteresting packaging by Sideshow after the Disney bought over the license.

This figure isn't the exclusive set that comes with unmasked Jango and so his head will stay on for now. Let's start with the poncho which Jango draped over. Very old west looking.

The only weapon Jango has are these Westar-34 blaster which he used them efficiency and effectively.

Sideshow includes blasting effects and the smoking effect for the blasters.

The stand included is effective for flight post but I do not recommend for permanent display use. The waist clamps can do substantive damage to the figure due to forces of gravity and friction. Mmm, the force is strong in these clamps...

"Jango had two jetpacks, one of which was a Merr-Sonn JT-12 jetpack; the jetpack was personally manufactured for Jango Fett by Merr-Sonn Munitions prior to the Clone Wars. The other was a Z-6 jetpack manufactured by Mitrinomon Transports. The JT-12 was a compact jetpack featuring a warhead missile launcher. This model was similar to the more heavily-armored Mitrinomon Z-6 jetpack. The Mitrinomon Z-6 was a more common model of jetpack used by the Mandalorians. Many Mandalorians used this type of jetpack, including Jango Fett and Boba Fett. The jetpack included a targeting computer, flight gyros, and a missile/grapple launcher." 

Jango met his end when faced Mace Windu in the Kamino battle and Boba witnessed his father's head rolled as Mace beheaded him.

Height wise, Jango is a tad shorter than his son.

My son had to join in the fun and took out his 3.75" Fetts.
