8011 TECHNIC Jango Fett is a TECHNIC set from the Star Wars universe that was released in 2002. It contains a TECHNIC model of Jango Fett.

Description[edit | edit source]

Jango Fett has a backpack consisting of a jetpack and a rocket that can fire, and two pistols and holsters. The mechanism that fires the rocket causes Jango to lean forward at the waist before the rocket is fired. The model is not very posable; the only joints are at the waist, neck, shoulders, wrists and fingers.

Background[edit | edit source]

Jango Fett was a human male born on Concord Dawn, where his family was killed by the Death Watch, a splinter group from the legendary True Mandalorians. Alone and afraid, Jango was adopted by Jaster Mereel, the leader of the Mandalorians. When Jaster's second in command, Montross, betrayed him to the Death Watch in a trap ending with Mereel's death, Jango Fett rose to become the leader, or Mand'alor, himself.

When the last of the True Mandalorians were massacred on Galidraan, framed by the Death Watch and attacked by Jedi, Fett, after killing six Jedi singlehandedly and escaping, decided to become a bounty hunter. using Jaster's old Starfighter, which he named Jaster's legacy, he took on many missions, quickly earning a reputation as the galaxy's deadliest bounty hunter. Some of his more notable jobs were the attempted assassination of Padmé Naberrie and tracking Deathsticks to the Bando Gora cult.

During the latter mission, he acquired his second ship: a heavily armed prototype Starfighter he named the Slave I. Jango made several heavy modifications to the ship, turning it from a police ship as it was originally designed to the bounty hunter ship it would become.

After being recruited by Count Dooku, Fett became the template from which all of the Clone Troopers were made. One clone was adopted by Jango as his son, named Boba Fett, who was altered from the rest of the clones, having the accelerated growth hormone and the unconditional obedience factor removed. Boba, in his time, would later become the most successful Bounty Hunter in the galaxy, just like his father.

At the Battle of Geonosis, Jango died at the hands of Jedi Master Mace Windu, who beheaded him in the Geonosian Arena with his purple bladed lightsaber.
