COMMENTS
This index assumes that the planet that Dooku's fortress is located on is one of Bogden's moons, per Jango's comment in Attack of the Clones regarding his place of recruitment for the clone project.

Komari Vosa, the sith apprentice in the Bounty Hunter console video game makes an appearance in this issue as noted at her entry in the Official Site databank, and at Hayden Blackman's Interview at the Unofficial Clone Wars Site.
SYNOPSIS
On a rainy night on Bogden's moon, Count Dooku is looking at a monument of lightsabers in a display room of a tower in his fortress. Darth Sidious appears as a hologram, wanting news of Jango Fett and his candidacy as the prime clone. Dooku, in the guise of Darth Tyranus, tells him that all is proceeding as expected, and that Fett should be effective against all enemies. He wistfully looks at the lightsabers in his display and describes the events from twelve years ago on Galidraan.

Once Dooku completes his tale, he muses that the mission was misguided in the first place and over half the Jedi sent were killed. They were forced to hand Jango over to the Governor, where he was forced into slavery. Outside the fortress, Slave I lands on the platform. Dooku observes this while, telling Darth Sidious, he is about to find out how the Mandalorian escaped. Jango Fett stands looking up at the tower, blaster rifle in hand, in the rain.

SYNOPSIS
In the snowy mountains of Galidraan, Mandalorians attack an outpost, killing, burning and destroying all opponents. Jango returns to their employer, the Governor, to collect his fee. He accuses the Governor of funding the Death Watch and wants to find out where he has been hiding Vizsla. Vizsla steps out of the shadows with Death watch troops, firing on Jango, who manages to escape out the window. As he departs, Fett's rocket backpack is struck by Vizsla's well aimed shot, and he plummets to the ground.

A handful of Republic Cruisers full of Jedi arrive, having been told that the Mandalorians are murdering political activists. Vizsla adds that they have been killing women and children as well. The Governor denies this, but Vizsla's says he will create some evidence to that effect.

Jango lands in a snow pack and sees the Jedi craft descend. He attempts to radio Myles at their encampment, but is being jammed. He makes his way to camp just as the Jedi arrive. The Jedi leader identifies himself as Master Dooku and orders them to surrender. The Mandalorians open fire on the Jedi with their blasters, but soon realize that this is ineffective as all blasts are easily deflected. They decide to use projectiles and Myles takes flight over the Jedi to provide cover. A dark haired Jedi leaps toward him, lightsaber activated. The next thing Jango sees is both halves of Myles plummeting to the ground.

Jango then begins to take on Jedi by hand, slaughtering them, until all that stand are Myles' slayer and himself. Using his body as a weapon he single handedly kills the Jedi. Dooku and the few remaining Jedi surround the tired Mandalorian and he reflects on the slaughter of the Mandalorians, wondering what they have done.

Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
