Jango Fett Pen - with Chromed elements
I was at Toys R Us last night picking up my latest Bricktober promotional brick when I spotted something unusual mixed in with the Star Wars figures.
Most of you are familiar with my facination with chromed LEGO products - imagine my surprise when I spotted a $5 LEGO pen set incorporating a Jango Fett minifigure...with a chrome helmet/backpack!
Although identical in scale, this is NOT a typical LEGO mini-figure. In fact, if I hadn't bought it at Toys R Us, and removed it from LEGO branded packaging, I would have sworn it was a bootleg. Super cheap plastic, one-peice legs, poor interlocking on the parts, and a general feel of "crap". But...hey! Chrome helmet!
Yes, you can swap out the chrome for the existing Jango Fett helmet if you don't mind a giant hole in the top.
