Boba is a clone of Jango.....so that makes them the same. I'm not a big fan of the Fett's. Although I do like Jango better


Welcome to LucasForums.com

Enjoy your time.....there's lots of things to look through. Have fun!

Dash Rendar is a cool bounty hunter aka mercenary. But Boba is the best. Even though hes a clone of Jango hes learned more and has more skills. He learned everything from dad and then a lot more later! So as is natural with generations, the offspring become better and better. Its kind of like evolution.

I would have to say that Boba is better than Jango. Boba Fett lived longer than Jango (I think).

I think Boba is better. The only true way to distinguish which one is better is the fact that green is cooler than blue... therefore Boba!

Boba,though,lived during a time where there were hardly any jedi's. Both Jango and Boba were killed by jedi's.

I must say I prefer Jango Fett, and for two very good reasons.

1: He has brilliant armour. His is silver, smooth and coldly chilling, whereas Boba wears battered green and red rubbish. I know it's the same armour, but Jango shows us what all the weapons do. Boba simply shoots his rifle a lot. Boring.

2: Jango Fett is the ally and personal bodyguard of Count Dooku, the greatest Star Wars character ever. Anyone associated with the Count is brilliant, and (as far as I can see) Jango has more ties with the dark lord than Boba. Does Count Dooku even know who the little ten-year-old is standing in his VIP box?

"Who are you? Get out of my personal VIP box!"
(vrumm, wum wum, fzzz)
(Boba Fett lies on the floor, in several charred pieces)
"Now, on with the executions..."

I prefer Jango too cuz... blue is my fav color (!!!) and he has 2 pistols, instead of one like Boba in ROTJ. BOBA is a weird name, Jango sounds better!

But we all know here that the best character is of course Count Dooku (!!!)

I think Jango is better because Boba is living by his father's example. He is using his ship, his armour, and is copying his fathers old ways.

i don't think so.

after seeing his father die, boba's rage and hate for the jedi turn him into a cold-blooded psychopath.

the somewhat noble traits of his father, such as working for the richest and most powererful / keeping his armour clean, these traits are gone. boba will work for anyone and kill anyone, for money.

he may have been born a jango fett, but only Boba remains.


Fear can sometimes be a useful emotion. For instance, let's say you're and astronaut on the moon and you fear that your partner has been turned into Dracula. The next time he goes out for the moon pieces, wham!, you just slam the door behind him and blast off. He might call you on the radio and say he's not Dracula, but you just say, "Think again, bat man."
Try this on for size.

jango

got to be jango

1)He has nice, shiny armor
2)He has a nice, shiny ship loaded with weapons. and we get to see it fight
3)He uses two pistols, and anyone who uses two guns tops a guy with one in my book

Jango has two tactical pistols. Boba has a compact high power rifle! What would you rather have? Two .45 USPs or a 5.56mm Famas?

Who was older when they died though? That is the question.
Jango could of been in 5 movies too had they been made. Lasting movies doesen't mean anything.
Does anyone know how old they were when they each died?
You know this one Jedi Monk?

Hey, Obi-Wan13 has now magically changed into Captain Archer from "Enterprise"...

The sheer fact that "Star Wars - Bouny Hunter" is based on Jango Fett and not Boba Fett is proof enough that Jango rules, and Boba is a cheap knock-off (with dented armour). LucasArts could have easily made the game about Boba Fett, but they chose Jango because he is better. No messing, straight up, Jango Fett rules!

Next to Count Dooku, of course...

They made Jango the character to use cause hes never been in a game before. Boba has. So you use the newest characters created. More interesting. More fan appeal. New stuff to learn. More buyers. History shows that when trained over generations offspring get better and better. Its a fact. You use what dad gave you and create new and better things. How else do you think people evolve and get better?

My dad learns how build a house. I learn to build a house from him faster cause he already knows how and I then discover how to make a chimney. My son learns how to make a house with a chimney faster so he spends his time creating a stove! The first generation could only build a house. The third could make a house, chimney and stove. Think people, its a good thing! Shiny armor doesnt mean a better fighter. In fact worn armor means more experience and survival. Boba has seen a lot.

It is said that Boba became the best BH in the Galaxy... but, he's Jango's clone... so he is Jango, with more experience.

Btw, does anybody know how old he was in RotJ?

Yes thats a very good way of putting it. Better than I did. But hes still Boba. 2 of the same person biologically but the clone gets more experience.

Well hes about 10 in ep2. So 2 years to ep3, 20 to ep4, 3 to ep5, and 1 to ep6...36 years old in ep6.

Just because he is a clone doesen't mean that he has all of Jango's Skill. Boba was unaltered so that means that he didn't have any genetic tampering. He learned from Jango for the short time that he was with his father. So he did get skills from his father.

I also think that they are both on equal grounds. Jango lived in a time of Jedi. Boba did not. Someone also said that Boba's armor means that he was more expierenced. Maybe Jango was that good but didn't get his armor dirty. You can say the opposite and say that Boba was reckless and got all his armor dirty. They were both Notorious. There reputations were there to show there acomplishments.

Boba also saw much more. He saw the destruction of the Republic and the forging of the Empire. They were both really good. Jango lasted in a time of Jedi. That isn't vey easy you know. I say they are both good but Jango is my favorite.

Jango was also trained by a Mandolorian named Jaster Mereel. Before it was that it was Boba's original name. I saw a trailer for the game Bounty Hunter and there Jango is told to get a new ship but he say's no cause the one that he is using currently was Jaster Mereel's. Jaster Mereel is tied to the Fett family in some way or another. Jango was also the last Mandolore. Just some info for some more consideration.

Hm... I think Jango is much more skilled than boba. He did live through the time of the jedi, and you have to take in consideration that as you clone something over and over again, it loses quality (an example of this being the clonetroopers not being as good as Jango fett)

it's not a photocopier ! cloning creates an exact copy. and all the clones could be made from the original source everytime. the clones are deliberatly made less independant or as you put it "good" as jango. boba is an exact and equal copy, genetically that is.


Fear can sometimes be a useful emotion. For instance, let's say you're and astronaut on the moon and you fear that your partner has been turned into Dracula. The next time he goes out for the moon pieces, wham!, you just slam the door behind him and blast off.

That is incorrect. It is impossible to prevent mutations from occuring in clones, and thus each clone is distinct and different from the base code used to create it. Furthermore, environmental factors can also mutate genetic code. Environment serves to shape much of a person's personality, intelligence, and other traits, as well. So Boba and Jango are very much different people, similar in ability, appearance, and genetics, but different none-the-less.

since boba was killed by luke i would have loved to see jango killed by Anikin it would have made the movies so much cooler and brought father and son so much closer. and by the way i like boba fett more than jango fett too. but neither is a match for Plo Koon!
