Initially I was a bit surprised to see Starwars figures as technic sets and not really convinced that these should be in this theme. However reading about the heritage and the purpose of Jango Fett it fits just fine, being a template for the clone army, which is a key character of Lego figures. You can multiply them as much as you need to. A bit of history of this character:

Jango Fett emerges as a pivotal figure in "Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones," renowned across the galaxy for his unmatched prowess as a bounty hunter. His tale weaves through the fabric of the Star Wars saga, blending the lines between hero and antagonist. Selected by the Sith Lord Darth Tyranus, also known as Count Dooku, Fett's genetic code becomes the foundation for the Grand Army of the Republic's clone troopers. This grand army, originally commissioned by Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas, becomes entangled in the Sith's intricate scheme to dominate the galaxy.

Clad in his iconic Mandalorian armor, Jango Fett is the embodiment of a warrior from the storied culture of Mandalore. His armor, complete with a T-shaped visor helmet and an array of integrated weaponry, including a jetpack with a missile, twin blaster pistols, and various other combat gadgets, marks him as a formidable presence on any battlefield. These tools, combined with his exceptional skills in hand-to-hand combat, marksmanship, and strategic tactics, solidify his reputation as one of the galaxy's most feared bounty hunters.

The narrative of Jango Fett is deeply intertwined with that of his son, Boba Fett. As part of his compensation for serving as the template for the clone army, Jango requested an unaltered clone to raise as his own. This clone, Boba, grows under Jango's tutelage, inheriting his father's legacy and eventually stepping into his shoes as a legendary bounty hunter. Their bond is a defining element of Jango's story, highlighting a more personal aspect of his life amidst the backdrop of interstellar conflict.

Jango's journey reaches its climax at the Battle of Geonosis, marking the onset of the Clone Wars. It is here, in a confrontation with Jedi Master Mace Windu, that Jango meets his demise, a moment that resonates through the galaxy and heralds the beginning of tumultuous times.

The legacy of Jango Fett endures beyond his death, manifesting not only in the legions of clone troopers that bear his genetic signature but also in his son, Boba, who continues to shape the unfolding narrative of the Star Wars universe. Through his contributions to the creation of the clone army and his influence on Boba Fett, Jango Fett adds a profound layer to the saga, bridging the gap between the prequel trilogy and the events that follow in the original series and beyond.

Besides the rich history this set as a figure is unfortunately a bit stiff and positioned in a 45degree angle horizontally where only his arms can turn at shoulder level. He has the 2 blaster pistols, a jetpack and rocket launcher. The only technic'-feature is a mechanism that shoots the projectile when bending a bit forward which is a fun feature. A great set after all and a fun fact; it is the only Technic Lego set containing parts in color violet! It is the first set to contain one part in Dark Orange, which just happened twice afterwards in 2018 in set 42080 - Forest Machine just 2 different parts and again in 2024 also with just one part in quantity 2 in set 42180 - Mars Crew Exploration Rover all three sets contain '80' in their set number, go figure!
