Boba! He can actually take on Vader and he has killed jedi, and he has completed more bounties.

I agree. Boba was battle-worn (you can tell by his armor), while Jango was shiny whenever you saw him. Boba kicks butt.

Jango was clean when he battled Obi-wan on Kamino because it was raining when they were outside, duh. XD

Hmmm... I think Boba learnt from the mistakes his father made (he learnt everything from his father).... and he had a hard time, when he had to survive. So I think this points made him the best bounty hunter of the galaxy.


By the way. what was that for a hard disease boba had (he would have died, I heard)?

Yeah, Boba survives to die another day... You know, in a comic book of Dark Horse (star wars), he actually tells his life to his CHILDREN!!! He escaped the Sarlacc's digestive substances with his armour...

So I prefer Jango, his story makes more sense and he has a much cleaner armour than Boba... Taking a shower after catching some outlaws isn't enough... The armour needs it to... :-)

PS: I like his flamethrower!

In Dark Empire he tells to Dengar that the Sarlacc Didn't liked the taste of his armour, so he spit him out. also in Starwars Tales there is a story that the sarlaccs mind has been grown together with one of its slow digested preys, apparently Boba made some sort of deal so he could get out.

Actually, according to the Clone Wars series, he tries to Kill Mace when he was young. Even then, he knew he couldn't do it on his on, so he got bounty hunter backup. Jango wasnt smart enough to use his jetpack to get out of the way of Mace, and it cost him his head....

Actually, he did try to use his jetpack but it was damaged by the Reek when it ran him over. You can see his jetpack sputtering as Mace approached him. I like Jango better, at least in the movies. Boba seemed to be a bit clumsily, especially in Ep 6. I would have liked to see Jango be in more than one movie.

Boba Fett, all the way.
The classic and original Fett in all of his glory!

Jango may have had a shiny suit, but then again, it made him look less experienced - Boba had much more experience than his "father", hence his battle worn armour. He was also a far better bounty hunter, since Jango wasn't capable of dodging Mace. Boba even managed to trap Mace Windu for a while, getting him and Anakin stuck under the Venator's debris. AS A KID.

You do have a point I suppose I've only read the first one which we bought when our library had a clean out sale (but I couldn't get the others because our town library doesn't have much sci-fi stuff) and in that book he was well yeah, he was different from Jango. Eswpecially in the way that he couldn't kill mercilessly like his 'father' did.

Boba definitely he has learnt from his fathers mistakes and had enough guts to take on Luke and he was doing pretty good until Solo shot the pack he might have had a good chance of beating Skywalker. He (in my opinion) has had more battle experience and has had better luck with executing Jedi. He also knows when he is beaten and isn't stupid enough to get killed.

I definitely have to say Boba Fett,cause first of all Heīs my altime favorite star wars character and bounty hunter;second,he survived and completed every single mission his is paid to do so from the beggining of the clone wars all the way too the legacy era if i'm correct;third,I saw him (Jeremy Bulloch myself in person when I went to Disney's Hollywood Studios on june 3 this year(which was definitely the best day of my life!);fourth, he kept using different eapons weapons unlike Jango who always used his same ones;fith,he's far more experienced,feared and most respected bounty hunter in the galaxy.His name is always shouted in fear and respect,he's even considered as Darth Vader's right hand man.have you ever herd Dooku considering Jango his right hand man,I know i haven't.

Even though Jango was mandalor I still like Boba cause he is alwase ready. Not shineing your armor is smart because shiney armor is easy to see where as dull armor gives less of a glint. That and his armor is green so it's camo sorta. Also he gets a live action tv show soon.

I prefer Jango for a couple of reasons:
-Jango is a MUCH better shot, if you look at the movies. (Jango Fett barely misses any shots on Kamino, and none on Geonosis, yet Boba misses Luke by a parsec while the sail barge assault is taking place)
-Boba allowed Han to hit him even while he was blind, while Jango died an honourable death to Mace, definitely one of the best jedi of all in terms of swordsmanship.
-Jango Fett has the better action scenes, and manages to hold his own against Obi-Wan.
-I prefer Jango Fett's duel pistols to Boba's single blaster. They're more unique since he's one of the few that use them. On the other hand, Boba's EE-3 blaster is used by Sugi and several others, and it just doesn't seem too special to me.
-Alright, I like the cape and battle-damage that Boba has, but that's about all I've got for him.

-Besides, I always did like blue more than green...

Boba, all the way. He has the equipment, skills, and resolve to get the job done. A genuine galactic force, he was intrenched in so many politics that he was more influential than most politicians, and led to the downfall of the Bounty Hunter's Guild and many other cartels and criminals. To boot, he survived the sarlacc, became Mandalore, trained Jaina to defeat Caedus, and was an unstoppable supercommando in the Yuuzhan Vong war.

Jango Fett hunted bounties for 19 years, and I know that's less than Boba, but Boba didn't have tougher jobs.
Jango Fett was in a time with jedi, and he took out a lot of them. Boba, however, just had to kill people without force powers.

As for Cad, I don't know much about him, but I just don't really like him for some reason...

Wile Jango does appeal to many because of his armor and apparent superiority over his son, Boba is far more powerful and just better in general.
All you have to do is look beyond Star Wars II and see his activities in the Yuuzhan Vong War, his training of Mara to fight Caedous, his activities with Dengar, and tons more instances where he is completely BA.

Boba does have a great backstory, I'll give you that, but Jango did as well. He tracked down a "sith" named Komari Vosa and took her down to become the clone template.
He also had a lot of battles alongside real mandalorians and killed a rival bounty hunter called Montross.

And surprisingly, I prefer Boba's battle-damaged armour and his cape (with mando symbol)

I guess he may have had to kill some jedi, he didn't kill as many as Jango Fett did.

Also, the Slave 1 was Jango's at first, so it could have been pre-installed by him.

Honestly I would have to say Boba because he has more screen time than Jango though both of them died like pnuks so I really don't like either of them all that much.

As much as I'd like to argue here, I'll admit that he probably did. Of course, Boba was likely hired to hunt some of the Order 66 survivors down, and they'd likely be more powerful than average Jedi...

Possibly, I'll have to look that up.

But why are Jedi an indication of skill? While they are powerful, they are also scarce for Boba and plentiful for Jango, so Jango would easily be able to kill more, even if Boba's better. Just a thought. ;)

Good point.
I would still see jedi as an indication of skill though, since it's a lot easier to kill a group of thugs than a single jedi.

Boba has a lot of potential left, considering that he survived the sarlacc, but I still think that Jango is the better shot, comparing the movies.

You probably noticed that I compare the movies a lot when comparing the two bounty hunters. I'll admit I don't really read the EU books, so when I look at a comparison of the skill in the movies, Jango wins by a parsec.

In my opinion, neither of them died like punks. Jango died to the most skilled jedi on the council (in terms of lightsaber skills)
where Boba didn't die at all. (in the movies at least, or the EU for that matter. He dies of old age, apparently. Maybe later on in that TV special I'm hearing about he will die, but we'll just need to wait and see.)

And I'm really not sure which one had the most screen time, but they're probably about the same. However, you might notice that Boba spends a lot of screen time just standing there and following around Vader. Jango Fett has an action scene to himself.

(Oh yeah, I forgot about young Boba :P)

George Lucas was contemplating adding a scene after the barge blows up in ROTJ for the remastered edition, where Boba was to climb out of the Sarlacc. (or so he said on the commentary)

I heard that he didn't add it because it would slow down the pace of the film, and it was also unrelated to the storyline.

Yes, understandable. It just proves that he accepts that piece of information as G-level cannon.

At the moment, yes.
But it is possible that things could change in ep7. It's unlikely, but maybe Boba ends up dying. I would doubt that JJ Abrams would do that, considering he's such a popular character, but anything not in the movies is still subject to change.

Personally, I would like to see Boba live through the movies, just because he is still pretty cool.

Oh...I thought he died. Anyway you've got a valid argument but I'm not a huge fan of either of the Fetts. Cad Bane FTW!!

I'm a bit worried about that new collectors book "Star Wars: The Bounty Hunter Code: From the Files of Boba Fett." Apparently the Death Watch Manifesto has notes from Jango Fett in it - which is odd, since Jango was never a member of Death Watch and the reason that he is opposed to Jedi is because they mistakenly believed all Mandalorians to be Death Watch. It seems the people publishing this book have made the same mistake...

I think the whole clone-thing makes his characters even more interesting. Have you ever read the Boba Fett novels? (the ones about his youth and the time after his father died) I think it's one of the greatest SW novels ever.

WHAT! Don't tell me they're retconning Karen Traviss agian. Did the Death Watch not kill his family? Jaster Mereel saved him from Tor Visla and Fett joined the true Mandalorians to fight them.

of all the Fett's we know of Cassus reigns supreme in my mind. though he never became Mandalore that does not mean he wasn't the best Mandalorian. his leadership on and off the battle field was unmatched. and he destroyed worlds with the armies he commanded. he was know by many as "Mandalore's Thug" that implies that he was the force behind Mandalore, just as Boba was the Force behind Jabba. the difference being Jabba never held the galaxy like the mandalorians would.

Boba was a great bounty hunter, and Jango too. but from a Mandalorian view point, Boba would not be deserving of the name until after RotJ. Jango was worthy but not Mandalore caliber.

and lets not forget Cassus is the Forefather of all Fetts (his father is never spoken of) unmatched in the entire galaxy for more than 3000 years! and as far as we know Cassus never got bumped into a sarlac of beheaded by a jedi, never shocked by a sith. he has been portrayed as un reachable always 5 steps ahead.

Boba! He can actually take on Vader and he has killed jedi, and he has completed more bounties.

Jango killed 6 Jedi with his bare hands. (well, gloved, but you know what I mean :P) And I assume he has completed more bounties because he spent his entire life as a bounty hunter, a life that was more than twice as long as Jango's. Jango only spent his last years as one.

I'd say they're about the same. Some people may bring up Jango's lame death, but I assess them by their life; both characters had ridiculous deaths (I know Boba didn't really die in the sarlacc, but still) and they only went out in that way because the plot called for it.
On the other hand, they were both incredibly efficient in life, both collecting numerous bounties, both killing many Jedi, and both serving as Mand'alor at one point. If I factor in the clone wars, Jango wins. Because Boba's a whiny, inefficient, emotional little kid in the show. But I don't count the clone wars as canon. So Jango and Boba are about the same to me. :P

no contest for me. On this site called Lego Star Wars Creations, (look for me as Expert_Sniper) I have created a story largely known to the old time builders, (I'll spare you the history lesson of a website) about the sons of Jango Fett that weren't seen in the movies or shows. Kind of my own version of why Jango wanted an un altered clone. But yeah, Jango defiantly.

I'm with Boba! I think boba knew how to take a safe risk. He knew his strengths, so he knew when he wasn't powerful enought to take someone on, therefore Jango went after anyone. I also felt Jango was a bit more cocky about himself.

Jango or Boba? Who is your favorite Fett and who do you think is the better bounty hunter?

.... I like them both and I canīt decide ....

... but

I think....

Maybe I like Jango a little bit more, because he is "the last" mandalorian and I like his technologys


What about you?
