I think it got knocked off during battle. I mean didn't he get hit in the head a couple times?

If you mean that view finder "dealy", it's positioned behind his head during that battle.
I just got back from my second viewing, so I was watching more closely for stuff and I just happened to notice this.

Yea, it was probably just bent back behind his helmet.

Actually it is broken off completely when Obi Wan causes Jango to crash into the wall.

At the very begining when Jango flies up on the tower, you can see the viewfinder flip behind his head right before the rocket fires (presumably so it doesn't get messed up)

But after that it is back in position on the top of his head when he is fighting with Obi Wan. After the crash however it disapperas completely. You can see this up close when Jango is climbing back up the side of the dome, after he cuts Obi Wans cord. There are several closeups of the front and back of Jangos head and the viewfinder is gone. :)

If that's the case then I'm suprised that he didn't fix it at some point.

Well apparently he did because it's back on when he's on Geonosis. So he either fixes it or he has another helmet (which could be since he also had another jetpack):)

i think that WAS a new helmet because the viser is on the opposite side...at least it is in the commercial for him....

That was the first version of the commercial, in the second version it was flipped back the correct way. It's likely the same helmet, Jango just replaced the viewfinder/antenna if it got knocked off. :)

Presumably it is since the dent that helmet recieves while battling Obi Wan is still there when he goes to Geonosis.:)

Doesn't he actually recieve the dent, when he's battling Mace and gets trampled by the Reek? I could be wrong, but I swear that's when it happens. :)

does jango look so much better with his "mini" jetpack on, the other one is just so much more boba and the colors dont even match him, i dont think he should ever wear the regular one!

I don't think he'll be wearing the regular one again anytime soon. :D

Dammit, karateyoda17! You beat me to it! :p:D

Actually I agree, the jetpack he wore in the arena looks a lot better. However, if you think about it shouldn't Boba Fett have that one, especially since the other one blew up on Kamino?

I guess Jango had several jetpacks, either that or Boba just went on over to JRU (Jetpacks R' Us) and bought a new one.:D

Nope. The dent happens on Kamino when Obi Wan wraps the wire around the pole and sends Jango crashing into the little "dividing wall" on the landing pad. This is also when his viewfinder snaps off.

There's a couple of closeups when Jango is climbing back up the side of the landing pad, and his viewfinder is gone and the dent is visible.

Also, the dent is there on Geonosis when he atempts to roast Mace on the balcony. :)

Thanks pthfnder89. Glad to be proven wrong in this respect, as that means that it is the same helmet. Jango repairs the helmet, or has Boba do it, and then later Boba inherits it and re-paints it. :)

No no no, you gots it all rong. He never puts an antenna back on the opposite side of his helmet. The reason it looked that way in the commercial is cause they simply flipped the pics in that scene. They did this, I think by accident in ROTJ, in Jabba's palace you can see Boba with everything flipped around.
