I just ordered the 12" Jango Fett from Amazon.com/TRU website. Since I couldn't find any 12" figs of Anakin & Clone Troopers I also ordered them as well. Jango was priced @ I believe $34.99 & the other 2 for $19.99 each. Thanks SSG for the update.

I hope that while you were ordering -- you picked up the TRU EXCLUSIVE Mace Windu ?!?!?!

Wonderboy

No doubt! The 12" Mace is probably the BEST of the bunch! Very nice fig!
The Jango is cool because of the removable armor and what not, but his legs look like they are WAY too short. Kinda hokey if you ask me...Emanuelle Lewis as Jango Fett. UGH

I went to Kmart this morning looking for the ultimate Jango Fett because it was in the paper that they had it,I went straight to the toy section there were no Episode 2 things. Then I went to where they had the toy set up and I was looking all over no Ultimate Jango Fett. So I went to the Custmer service desk and they said they didn't have it and woudn't get it for three or four weeks :eek: and she also said that no other Kmart would have it:eek: So I said to her how can you put something in the ads and not have she said they put it in there to pre order and she then said I don't know anymore about It.

So don't always trust those ads!!!!

No ultimate Jango yet? That thing is a major pegwarmer in my area.

The flyers don't account for 100% of the stores. Depending on store sales and the issue of store closings, your store might not have received the item yet (they could be behind schedule shipping as well)

Then again, I've never seen a customer service representative who had the entire store stock dedicated to memory.

Can someone please explain the difference between the electronic jango and the one with the firing backpack? Which one is Ultimate?
Also, how do they look? I haven't got any 12" figures, but i'm thinking of getting this one.
Which one is pictured in the Tokyo toy thing on the homepge?

Thanks a lot

Forhekset

Oh wait, duh. You said ULTIMATE, not Deluxe. Whoops. The Deluxe is the thing warming pegs. I saw a Kmart flyer this morning that had the Ultimate Jango in it too. But as far as I know every Kmart in my area is getting closed down so I doubt they would be getting any new stock in. So, no point in looking there....

kadamontaga, the Deluxe Jango is the "electronic" one, with snap on armor and sounds. Jango Fett Kamino Escape has a firing backpack, he's a regular figure. Here's a link to the one True Maul was talking about.

Looks basically like a 12" figure but with snap on armor and accessories. Pretty cool.

So let me get this straight...
In the 12 inch line there are going to be 2 Jangos released? I'm really not clear on this, could someone please sort it out for me.

The pictures I've seen online show two different lay-outs in the packaging. One of them has the figure's armour layed out to the right of the figure, and the other has the amour layed out to the figure's left. Which one is which?

Please understand I'm not talking about the 3-4" line.

derek
05-12-2002, 04:09 PM
yes, there will be 2 12 inch jango fetts.

the standard 12 inch figure, released in a big box like the 100th luke and an electronic one like electronic qui-gon and darth maul. there will also be an electronic 12 inch obi-wan.

check the sir steve picture archive. it's all in there.:)

Did anybody actually get the Ultimate Jango Fett or see it?

DarthMaulSithLord
05-12-2002, 09:09 PM
Does that mean the electronic Jango will be out of proportion with the rest of the bunch just like the E1 Electronics were in comparison to the regular E1 12 inchers?

:)

Forhekset
05-12-2002, 09:35 PM
Well, the deluxe electronic Jango is the same size as the other deluxe figs, 3 3/4". He's just a little bulkier with his snap on armor added. The Ultimate Jango appears to be the same size as the other AOTC 12".

derek
05-12-2002, 10:20 PM
Forhekset,

we're talking 12 inch not 3 inch figures here.:)

here is the ultimate 12 inch jango:

derek
05-12-2002, 10:21 PM
and here is the electronic 12 inch jango, and yes it will probably be out of scale with other 12 inch figure.:)

Forhekset
05-12-2002, 10:41 PM
Doh, I didn't know they were making a 12" electronic Jango :sur:

Dang, there sure are a ton of different versions of Jango already. The movie isn't even out yet.

Wonderboy
05-13-2002, 02:09 AM
The True Maul: Yep, I got it on Saturday. A few others that post on the L.A. section of this board have gotten it as well...but it's still SUPER hard to get. They JUST started shipping from what I understand.

I plan on getting the 12" Ultimate Jango and an Obi-Wan and I hope to find 12" E1 Obi or Qui cloak to put on Obi-Wan for the rain duel sequence.

05-13-2002, 11:05 AM
I already pre-ordered the 12" ultimate Jango on Amazon.com. Release date I believe is June 16th, 17th or 18th. The total price I believe $45 (whew). Maybe I should get a rain check @ K-mart & cancel my amazon order.

Megs 2
05-15-2002, 10:02 AM
I'm sorry if this was posted before (I couldn't find it here). I just cancelled my Ultimate Jango Fett from Amazon.com. The price including s/h totaled I believe $45. So is this the same figure that K-mart has advertised in this weeks flyer? If so then I will place a rain check for this item. Any helpful info would be appreciated, thank u.

ConvergeDW
05-15-2002, 12:24 PM
It most certainly is. Someone posted yesterday that they got a price match at a TRU for it, saving 10 bucks. I did the same this morning, so if your Tru has them you may want to look into that.

Megs 2
05-15-2002, 01:16 PM
Thanks ConvergeDW, I live in the RI/MA area so I will check my local TRU's Thurs 16th after I see ATOC. Hopefully if the employees r helpful (which they should be, it's their job) I can find out when they will get another shipment of AOTC assortment.

Why is everyone going crazy at Ebay for the 12 inch Jango Fett figures?


You can't find it for less than $70 at Ebay!

Does the demand exceed the supply? Is it really that rare or are some people really stupid?

Is it possible to buy it at a reasonable price between $20 and $30?

Has the figure been released yet or will it be released in June?


Will there be a 12 inch Jango released in the future similar to the Anakin, Obi, Clone Trooper, and Windu 12 inchers?

DarthBrandon
05-22-2002, 03:07 AM
Don't get caught up in the B.S. on Ebay, this figure will be out very soon so be patient. The people buying these figures cannot wait till June so they get a little nuts when they see them on Evil Bay. It was like this for the Dooku wave also, I just waited it out untill it arrived at my local toys store and I bought only what I needed and saved the rest for others. They will be plentifull.

P.S. If you can't find one later, get a hold of me and I'll see what I can do.

05-22-2002, 07:36 AM
Ulimate Jango *is* out already. I saw him about two weeks ago in a NYC TRU (Union Square). 40 bucks for the set, but he's got so many pieces of removable clothing and armor, its absolutely amazing. Well worth the 70 bucks they're going for on E-Bay.

But they are in stores, and only an idiot *would* pay the E-Bay price when a little patience will score them one at a regular store for retail prive.

I bought one at a K-Mart. It was on sale already and I got it for 32.99 (plus Tax). And I am stoked. It is an outstanding figure. I was thinking about buying all 4 that I saw but couldn't bring myself to be a scalper. Everyone needs to get one of these as soon as you can, but please don't buy them for more than the shelf price. If you are patient you will get one without having to pay the scalpers.

I bought mine at the TRU in NYC Times Square last week while on vacation to see EP II digitally. I usually don't buy any of the 12 inch line but this one is done so well that I couldn't pass it up, it's that COOL. I also recieved a free EP I widescreen video for spending over 50 bucks.

yup...i opened it... it is a new gi joe thinner one i guess...it is more articulate than the older 12 inch SW figures. very cool!


the only thing was that the gun holdster was very hard to keep on. the straps are smallllllll!

otherwise...i think this is one of my all time favorites since sith lord vader with removable helmet. :stupid:

Jedi Drew
05-23-2002, 09:04 AM
I was gonna stop collecting the 12" figures because of the cost and the space they take up untill I saw the 12" Jango at K-Mart last night. I had to snag one of these bad boys. He has a ton of extras that come along with him and the packaging is also cool. The only two things that I don't like are the velcro body armor that goes on his legs-it doesn't stay on well and the gun holdser is really hard to strap around his legs. Over all this is a kick a** 12"-If you see it buy it, you'll be impressed.:D :D :D HH

Darth Cruel
05-25-2002, 10:33 AM
I opened my 12" Jango. And let me tell you HE is the best of any figure yet. He has a great head sculpt, great sculpt on the hands (they hold his blasters perfectly).Jango has a very good body style for articulation, and of course, the mondo inclusion of accessories. By the way, I have been posing and displaying mine for nearly a week and I have not noticed that the legs are short. Mace's head sculpt isn't that good when you see it close up, his lightsaber hilt is too short, and his articulation is very standard. In other words, it is not very good. He cannot be put into any really good fighting poses. I am certain that you will be incredibly happy with both figures, though. As even the Mace is a huge improvement over the figures they have had in the more distant past.

Laserbrain
05-25-2002, 03:39 PM
I'd say a body swap is required for both of them. If they get a 12" section of this forum up and running some of us 12" collectors can show the rest of you how to do that.

As it is from what I've read, the Ultimate Fett is unlike any figure released for Hasbro to date. I expect him to make a ton of money for them, paving the way for more detailed 12" figs...then hopefully a well done Stormtrooper...

CooLJoE
05-26-2002, 01:49 AM
Yeah, I could go for a well done 12" Stormie myself.

Personally I'm skipping 12" Mace. That face on him is just too lame. Maybe if he wasn't smiling like an idiot.

Jango is on my list for sure. Maybe even Obi, but doubt it.

Already got a 12" Clonetrooper. Yellow and Red are next for me.

Laserbrain
05-26-2002, 02:18 AM
A company called Blue Box International (BBI) makes a line of highly articulated basic 12" figures called Body Builders for that go for $10. The AA Body Builder (African American ;) ) has an unbelievablely accurate sculpt of Samuel L. Jamson. I have one, unfortunately it has the Shaft goatee.

But still I gotta do a Mace with that body....maybe if I find some way to shave that off...

I finally found him at Meijer tonight! My wife and I hadn't been to this particular store in a while and we went out there because we were really bored and couldn't think of anything else to do last night. I went back to the toy aisles and I see a couple with Jango on the floor, and I thought to myself "you've got to be kidding me, I haven't seen this guy anywhere and now I'm two seconds late in getting one that had to have been sitting around for a while!"

Turns out the couple was looking for a specific SpongeBob SquarePants and had just moved him out of the way to look for it. (I'm guessing someone hid Jango down there for later), so as soon as they moved on, I picked him up!!!

I haven't seen this guy anywhere around here, and feel lucky to have found him.

I'm a 12" SW collector and would love to have a 12" forum here. I cast my vote in the thread along those lines about a week ago but I'm doing it again now. 12" Forum please. I would love to get some advice from some of the more advanced collectors out there.

And no, I don't have my Jango yet. :( He should be delivered on Monday so I'm keeping those fingers crossed. Then I can finally see what all the excitment is about.

ok...that was unexpected.... but i have to agree that jango is probably the best articulated one i have to date. i dont have the ep 1 obi to compare to though.

the only thing i cant get working is the gun straps on his legs...they keep popping off.

derek
06-10-2002, 09:16 PM
hey N-2PF,

that jango is better articulated than obi wan.
his ankles swivel up and down and left and right. it may not seem like much, but the ability to pose a figure's feet a little left or right adds a lot to the over all look of the figure.:) and the body has an overall more realistic build.:)

I work for Walmart and havent seen the 12" Jango yet. We finally got the Bespin Wave, but havent seen Palpy or Pilot Obi-wan yet.

I've waited for this kind of forum for so long, now I get busy at work and don't have time to do anything! I finally found an Ultimate Jango at TRU and someday soon I'm gonna customize the heck out of it and put up a how-to web page. All the talk and reviews really jaded me to the figure but they fail to convey the WOWZA factor he can have on you.

THIS THING FREAKIN' ROCKS, MAN!!!

Until I get time, head to this link on the Warrior's Forum for some body swap/custom ideas. There's the first post with images, then scroll way down for some more.

Were there a lot of him at TRU?

I've heard Walmart doesn't carry them...what about his brother Kmart? And their mother, Target?

K-Mart carries them, I see it there all of the time at a better price than TRU. I have not seen this at Target, but they are always slow with new stuff in my area.

I haven't seen one appear at any of the Target, TRU or Walmarts around here. What a bummer.

I just got mine at TRU, Good Lord! a bit pricey in my opinion but i got it. I wished he had his gear already on, what a pain to dress him up!

Still waiting for the price to come down.

I still have yet to find him at any of my K-Marts and TRU. I've heard he's very impressive. The hunt goes on.

I found one today at the KB Toys in a local mall, but the darn thing was $49.99! If it was $39.99 I might have considered buying it, but $50 is a little too much!

Jayspawn
06-30-2002, 01:09 AM
I finally found him!!! This is one of the BEST 12" figures, hands down. He has everything. I picked him up at Toys'R'Us for $39.99. Well worth it in my oppinion. Looks amazingly like Tamuera Morrison.

Jedi Juice, you're wise for not buying it at $50. Too much. Hold out and you'll get it for less. I did. Don't pay the KB price.

JediWannaBe
06-30-2002, 11:11 AM
On the Rebelcumİ homepage, reports indicate that Ultimate Jango has now shown up @ Wal-Mart for $39.96.
So, hopefully your local Wally Mart will have these soon, Happy Hunting. Maybe they will pricematch K-Mart'sİ $34.99 price :crazed:

Jedi Clint
06-30-2002, 11:46 AM
He ranks up there with the 14" talking Darth Vader as my favorite from the 12" line. IMO the leg armor could have been a bit better, but I was actually really glad when I found that the 2nd one I ordered from TRU/Amazon.com had a crushed box so I had an excuse to open one :).

DeadEye
06-30-2002, 10:50 PM
How appropriate...after I already spent $45 on one from yestertoys.com because my local mart brothers, Wal and K, don't have CRAP. :frus:

JediWannaBe
06-30-2002, 10:54 PM
I just left two TRUS and they had a ton of 12" Jangos, I think the rush is about over, they get $39.99.

here is an image of my Jango Fett standing by himself, tricky positioning, but it worked. He's standing on my computer desk...

And one image of him leaning, I like this pose better...

Let's see your Jango or other 12 " figures.

I was unaware that there was a problem getting Jango to stand. Mine does very well in any (reasonable) position. You do have some great poses for him.

Master Goeweins
07-05-2002, 01:29 PM
The only things that bug me are his lower holster straps (I had to use tape to keep them together) and his shin pads (mine are so thin I will have to put them under heavy books to get them to open up some).

Otherwise, this figure is the best of the best! I have mine standing between my Clone Trooper and my Deluxe talking Boba Fett. The Father flanked by his sons....

I thought about bending the shin guards outward as well, but I instead decided to just cut the top portion of the boots off down to the ankle, essentially making them into shoes, and then stuffing some tissue paper inside them so they'd stay put. Now the shin guards fit perfectly onto his legs since nothing's in the way anymore. It's kind of extreme, but you'll probably end up doing something similar out of frustration like I did.

Laserbrain
07-05-2002, 08:30 PM
That's not really extreme at all. Extreme might be tossing the leg plates in the spare parts bin and fabricating your own out of sheet metal.

Such procedures are certainly not out of the question in the sixthscale hobby, these are models after all. It depends on your resources available and how far you want to take it...

Your fix though, seems like the best way to go. I tried warming up the shin guards to reshape them to fit over the boots and the leg, but the shape between the two are to awkward.

So it's time to get the cutters....

Mwaahahahahahahahahahahhahahaaaaaaaaa..........

Hellzer
07-05-2002, 09:53 PM
I took some pics of my Jango with the altered shin guards. They might look a little odd since I got the photos by laying Jango down on my scanner (camera's busted).

Hello,

I went to Walmart a few days ago and found 6 Ultimate Jango Fett figures, which is the first time I found any. I am debating on whether or not to buy one because half of me says to get one, but the other half says not to spend $40. What do you guys think? Please offer some insight on whether or not to get one.

Thanks

Jango Mango
07-08-2002, 09:39 PM
Yes, you definitely need to have an Ultimate JANGO FETT in your
collection ! it is well worth the $39.96 , it is a deluxe set, this is one of the coolest STAR WARS figures Hasbro has ever produced ! :D when I first saw one at KB toy store it caught my
attention right away ! I didnt even see STAR WARS episode II
AOTC until after I bought the figure, now I want more SW figures!

:)

Exhaust Port
07-08-2002, 10:28 PM
Man, 6? I haven't seen one around here yet! Argh!

I would recommend getting the figure. I resorted to getting mine online at the same price as it's been in the stores and it was well worth it.

Jango Mango
07-08-2002, 10:38 PM
Jedi Juice, when I bought mine TRU only had 2 on the shelf and
one had box damage, I got the mint in mint box Jango , I dont
like buying a new figure with a beat up box, even if I plan on
opening it, part of the fun is picking out a really minty one from
the shelf.

07-08-2002, 11:12 PM

Alright, you guys convinced me to go buy one, I just hope that Wlamart still has a few available!

Jedi Juice
07-09-2002, 06:50 PM
*Update*

I did get my 12" Jango, and I am very pleased that I bought one. I also found the last of the basic collection to complete that set too. So I am very happy.

07-09-2002, 07:11 PM
I liked it so much that I bought a second one to keep boxed. The last time I bought a SW toy was a year and a half ago 12" Han Solo w/Endor Gear.So yes it's definately the best 12' since Biker Scout IMO. The new body is a breath of fresh air.

Ook
07-10-2002, 07:34 AM
Breath of fresh air indeed! Jango's a badass figure. I thought about getting a second one, too. I'd hate to be outta luck if I lost a piece or broke the guy or something. I might get another, I dunno...

Speaking of the biker scout, I'm damn sorry I missed that one!

07-10-2002, 09:00 AM
Does anyone here have a copy or a scan of the Kmart toy ad featuring the Jango Fett 12 inch figure for $32.00? Or, can anyone send me a scan or photocopy of a TOYS R US receipt showing the figure for this price? The only stores around here want $50 for that thing! Any help will be appreciated!

Awesome figure!!!! I really like the scuplt and everything about it. I'm sure it's even more impressive out of the box. However, I have to wait to see if the price comes down. I realize I may miss out because they are in such limited quantities, but I think 40 is too much. If I miss out, fine, I'll deal with that. Maybe buy it on ebay at a later time. But if I find one on clearance it'll be worth the wait.

Jango Mango
07-11-2002, 03:09 AM
I first saw the ultimate Jango Fett at a KB toy store at the mall
and it was $49.99! so when i saw it at TRU for $39.99 I bought
one right away, because it is worth it, some people on ebay have
paid over $60.00 for a Jango!

Mace Windex
07-11-2002, 01:33 PM
Thanks for the receipt scan. Now I have to see if any of the stores will PRICE match!

GET IT GET IT GET IT !!!!! I just opened my new one and all i can say is WOW -- this figure should set a standard!! he neck is great, the pull off arms are great -- and the bendable fingures to give ole Mace the finger is SUPER !!! Everything fits great and he looks awsom standing there -- staring at you with that evil look..made my puppy nervious!! A must have!!!

He just showed up at my local WalMart for $34.97. Look around and definitely do NOT overpay.

Jaina Solo
07-15-2002, 06:26 PM
I've seen him at my Wal-Mart, too. No price on him, and I couldn't find a price scanner to check how much they wanted for it.

I don't really have the money anyway, but I do want one- he looks very cool.

Jedi Juice
07-15-2002, 07:38 PM
Jango is probably $39.99..... at least that's how much he was when I bought him. None of the stores around here are having any sales, so I don't think Jango has gone below the $40 mark.

JediMikeBuckley
07-16-2002, 02:52 AM
Well, being a big fan of Boba Fett since we all first saw him in "TESB" I was pumped to see that they were exploring his origin in Episode II and introducing his father. I was very lucky to sell a 12" Sandtrooper on eBay and the buyer lived in my town, and traded the Sandtrooper for the Ultimate Jango Fett! Wow, so I basically got it for only about $7.00! I had to pay that little bit over his winning bid, but you can't beat that deal! I love it, and have him standing on my computer desk now with both pistols drawn, standing between both Slave I ships. The articulation, the weapons, armor, outfit, and best of all, removable helmet, and missle-firing jetpack! This has to be the best 12" Star Wars figure so far...and I have over 30 12" figures at this time.

Mace Windex
07-18-2002, 09:32 PM
Finally got that Ultimate Jango! The K-mart receipt copy worked like a champ! TRUS matched the $34.99 price! :)
I do have some questions and complaints about Jango. #1. Is there supposed to be some grappling hook that attaches to the string that comes in the set? I only see two Kamino saber darts. Also, It was a pain getting on his gun belt and the leg armor doesn't fit very well at all. Other than that he is really cool. I just wish they had used an alternative way to attach his leg armor. Velcro is cheesy.
MAce

JediMikeBuckley
07-18-2002, 11:37 PM
I agree Mace, that the velcro attachments for Jango's armor are cheesy to say the least. It would have been great to have snaps, or some other better way to attach the armour. His shin guards don't really wrap around his shins, or lower legs. They just sit on top of his legs. The belt was a real pain for me to get on too! As far as a grappling hook on a string, that would be nice too, but its not there. Still, all in all, it does top my Top 10 favorite Star Wars 12" figures...so far.

Darth Brick
07-19-2002, 11:37 PM
Hopefully I'll be able to pick up Ultimate Jango tomorrow if the Suncoast I saw him at still has him in stock. Then again, I'm still thinking of whether I should get him or the Lego Republic Gunship. Choices...

jdmarlow
07-20-2002, 01:39 AM
I have had the problem of whether or not to buy this Jango. Usually I would just pick him up no questions asked. But money has become an issue, and I don't know if he is worth it.

Ook
07-20-2002, 01:52 AM
I'll be damned. Maybe I'll take my receipt over to TRU and get another Jango!

jrviking07
07-23-2002, 11:38 PM
I love this figure but i agree the belt was a pain to get on. my armor is alright and I din't see why people say he is hard to stand up I got him to stand on my first try. all in all this is the best 12" FIGURE
