Pilot Jango and Young Boba Fett 2-Pack
« on: June 20, 2008, 04:54 PM »
New picture...   



The label makes it look like this will be a separate set of some kind, either a box set through the website or through a convention. ;)

Perhaps that's an exclusive like the DM Speeder or the Luke/Leia Speeder.

So that makes 3 different Jangos and we only have 1 prequel Obi-Wan? Where's the love?

Looks nice. Hopefully will end up around the $100 range at some point.

I'll have to find these eventually.  I think it's pretty cool looking.

They're nice, but when people start hoping that they get down to $100, I have to say that they're quite simply way too expensive for what they are. I'd buy them if they were the same price as a kubrick/be@rbrick set, but otherwise it's an easy pass.

It seems that Lucasfilm and the license holders like to push certain characters.  I, for one, can't get behind General Grievous as a villain yet he gets a lot of hype like they want us to be fans of him for some reason.

I get the same vibe from Jango.  Good character, but he seems to get foisted on us at every turn.  I'm a big fan of Shaak Ti but there are big droughts of nothing for her then when they do show her some love it's in a chase figure.  Aayla, who I'm not as big of a fan of, gets a lot more product and I'm almost surprised she didn't get a chase figure...but she could be due for wave 10.

I can't tell from the pic, but does this Jango include a Jetpack?

I'm just wondering whether the price will hold up as long as other items on this one?

This will be the 3rd Jango released and whilst one of everything collectors will be after a set I'm not so sure the casual collector would be after a set - they can get a Jango elsewhere, similalry I think a lot of collectors will also reason that they have a Jango so not go after this set. I'm also not sure that a young Boba is enough of a pull for those who are looking for reasons not to buy.

Oh boy, a May release & a retail of 3,129 yen so about $35. US. Well it will be the auction block for this set. Sigh.

Nice set, I'll definitely want one if I can get one.  I'm sure I'll be hitting the auction block for this set as well.
