Jango Fett’s Slave I 7153

Boba Fett, Jango Fett, Slave I

7153 Jango Fett's Slave I

While Star Wars bounty hunter Jango Fett’s tenure as an onscreen antagonist might have been comparatively short compared to the reign of his son/clone Boba Fett, but he sure did seem to take better care of the Slave I his son/clone would later inhereit. The Slave I, under Jango Fett, was far more than the Firespray 31 prototype with a massive set of Kuat-drives installed, and the LEGO Star Wars version included with LEGO Jango Fett's Slave I 7153 is no different. This version of the legendary Slave I comes complete with retractable wings that are tied directly into the cockpit’s seat. When the wings are deployed, the orientation of the seat inside the cockpit changes.

Weighing in at over 350 pieces, some of which are linked and/or articulate, the LEGO Star Wars 7153 version of the Slave I is a relatively easy to assemble LEGO Star Wars kit. Armed with two rotating blasters, a pair of articulated laser beam cannons, and twin projectile launchers, the Slave I is a formidable craft to say the least. Just imagine assembling the Slave I in much the same way that Jango did after his escape from the asteroid prison Oovo IV. Once complete, just imagine the Slave I flying through asteroid fields in hot pursuit of its prey, or playing a deadly game of cat and mouse in a junk-strewn area of a space littered in the aftermath of the countless climatic battles that form the story of the incomparable Star Wars universe.

The set comes with a young LEGO Boba Fett and a LEGO Jango Fett model for those that cannot get enough of LEGO characters. The Boba Fett has a somewhat angry look to his face, while the Jango Fett model looks cool and competent without its optional headpiece/jetpack unit that can actually be worn by either of the Fetts when their hair has been removed. Both of the Fetts are wonderfully detailed, but it seems that particular care was paid to Jango. This may be due to the relevance of the kit being a circa-Episode II version of the Slave I, but young Boba Fett is also wonderfully detailed.

The Slave I itself appears to be very sleek and clean when fully put together, and its lack of rust or mottled gray colors has much to do with the fact that LEGO is attempting to make the Slave I look as pristine and well maintained as it did during Episode II.

Slave I Starships

Boba Fett, Fett LEGO Sets, Jango Fett, Slave I

LEGO Slave 1

There are four different LEGO Star Wars sets for the avid bounty hunter fan that build the Slave I Starship: 4487, 7144, 6209, and 7153. Each of these LEGO Star Wars kits contains the incomparable Slave I, and the kits can form a timeline of sorts starting with the Jango Fett's Slave I  7153. The LEGO 7153 is an average size Slave I kit, but it features fully articulated parts and accurate color representation by LEGO standards. The colors on the 7153 Slave I are designed to mimic the Episode II variant of the infamously lethal starship that is often the last thing those running from a Fett get to see.

The 4487 is a much smaller version of the circa-Episode II Slave I and comes with a detailed Jedi Starfighter to duel with. Both craft included in the 4487 are mini-size but the Slave I still retains its telltale folding wings and rotating blaster cannons that make short work of anyone who dares to cross a Fett or happens to have a bounty on their heads. The only question is: To disintegrate or capture alive?

The LEGO Star Wars kit 7144 is a reasonably large version of the circa-Episode V Slave I. The 6209 is a far larger and grander version of the circa-Episode V Slave I, but both come with a carbonite-clad Han Solo and Boba Fett. The Han Solo block of carbonite is simply too cute to pass up, and really changes the mood of the entire situation from one of eternal captivity to one of LEGO-fueled fun and adventure. Additionally, both feature several articulated parts including working cockpits, rotating cannons, and deployable wings. The big difference is that the larger 6209 kit comes with far more pieces and thus produces a more detailed and intricate Slave I than the 7144 kit does. This should not be surprising for LEGO fans considering the fact that more pieces almost always results in longer builds with better final results.

The two Episode V based Slave I kits show a certain lack of care for the Slave I’s exterior. While Star Wars lore lets fans know that Boba did keep the operational aspects of the Slave I up with the times, the exterior gives it the appearance of a muscle-car project that is never quite complete. Given the incredible amount of detail lavished on every aspect of Star Wars by George Lucas, this appears to be intentional and is well replicated by LEGO.

Jango Fett

Jango Fett, Slave I

LEGO Jango Fett

Jango Fett has a very important place in the entire Star Wars mythos. He is the donor for the cells that created the legendary Boba Fett and the genetic basis for the clones used by the Republic. Whether or not those clones formed the backbone of the Empire’s Episode IV-VI storm trooper ranks is debatable, but the fact is that none of the clones or storm troopers seemed to ever match Jango’s wolfishly good looks. While the various LEGO Jango Fetts cannot hope to manage to recapture the onscreen appearance of one of the galaxy’s most famous and feared bounty hunters, the Jango Fett included with LEGO Jango Fett's Slave I 7153 is a prime example of how LEGO can take one of the most iconic characters from the Star Wars universe and manage to make it something unmistakably LEGO-ish.

The LEGO Jango Fett comes with blue legs and arms, black hands, a brown belt/waist segment, and a detailed gray suit. The gray suit gives the impression of being rumpled, and has 5 different light gray sections that stand out from the darker gray background. The coloration of the suit itself makes more sense when Jango is wearing his infamous Mandalorian helmet and backpack affair which he uses to fight Jedi or just enjoy a night out on the town when visiting Coruscant. Of course, Jango Fett’s idea of a night on the town usually includes a great deal of sneaking, spying, and at least a little killing or abduction, and the slightly sinister look on the face of his LEGO character certainly hints that there is a great deal more to Jango than meets the eye.

The LEGO version of Jango Fett is a standard sized LEGO character and can fit into any number of vehicles, including the Slave I that he is often sold with. With his distinct Mandalorian helmet and bounty hunter jetpack attached, he is simply lethal but still cool just as he was on that fateful afternoon in the arena on Geonosis. Without his Mandalorian helmet and bounty hunter jetpack, the LEGO Star Wars Jango Fett is still a unique character, but he cannot possibly match the roguish charm of his big screen counterpart.
