    2 Weeks Ago - Dec 4, 2014, 3:44 PM - Jango RF Movement #1

    Hey guys, this may have already been discussed? However, understanding that this has indeed been a topic of discussion for sometime I have to ask. Has anyone noticed that the RF does move during the kamino duel? Watch closely as jango fires off the rocket the RF moves backward, then forward. Thoughts?

    The RF does move but only in the CG world. The actual prop made for the film was stationary. The entire flight sequence during the fight is all CGI.

    mullreel and i have discussed the stupid movement of the rf in the cg scenes. though that was the least ridiculous part of that particular shot, when did jango get bit by a radioactive spider?

    seriously, jango "spidermans" around the thing he's crawling on. it's a vertical surface and he's crawling on it like a bug and gravity doesn't apply to him. check it out right here: http://youtu.be/8tMZdrUx8eM?t=29s

    watch closely, you'll also see his rf go backwards right as he fires the rocket.

    He's just that good of a bounty hunter....don't be hatin...

    You'd need an aluminum RF stalk to work properly with a servo wouldn't you? I would think a resin one wouldnt hold up very well at the bolt point as the backing rod does not extend down into the circle....ask me how I know lol.

    There is a practical meaning for the RF to tilt backward, because while he is behind that column and is shooting his rocket, he need the RF that way to allow him to target Obi-Wan Kenobi. The sad part is that they did this only with the CGI model and not with the real suit.

    and don't forget that by the time Jango takes the kick from Obi Wan that sends them both off the side the RF is gone completely..........

    Did NOT know that. So my broken RF stalk "should" be considered screen accurate then?

    and the helmet is dented....
  17. 2 Weeks Ago - Dec 6, 2014, 5:30 AM - Re: Jango RF Movement #17

    Indeed the stalk does go back and forth. The dent appears when Jango had a battle with Mace Windu at Geonosis.

    I don't see any flashing LEDS thought like Boba Fett does.

    No, the JP beacon has no light either from what I've seen and read....., makes the CRL incorrect

    The dent is there during the battle with Obi Wan. Freeze frame the video posted above at the 2:06 mark and take a look.
