Forgive me if there is a thread already.. I used search and found nada...
Being new to Fett... I wanted to know what you all think. I have finished many builds, some good some not so. 3 diffrent sets of Stormtrooper armor, a Biker Scout, Royal Guard and Maul... Then there is Vader. The obsession.
I have decided to just focus on Vader and Stormtroopers... Sold all the rest. Now I have the opportunity to do Fett.
Of all the costumes of Star Wars, Fett stands out to me as one of the harder ones to pull off. Paintwork, build and such place it in a realm of its own. Being the GML of the JG, we have no Fett's active so I have never had to do the homework so to speak. Here I am though. Reading and building.
I like to push the accuracy envelope, however not all things accurate troop well. For example, my accurate wool cape and robe for Vader, not the eBay ones, are friggin heavy. I deal, but man... Takes it out of me. I have pushed Vader to the highest level I feel comfortable trooping. I only really have to upgrade the leather suit and the gloves. Currently no gloves exist better and no suit is made for an approachable price.
What parts of Fett can you slide on and still pull it off? This is a costume and not a prop to me, so it has to be worn. What works, what doesn't?
On a second thought, what parts that are accurate but expensive are not worth the time? For example...
Vader's shin guards. The plastic ones most readily available are great to troop. I am sure there are more accurate ones in fiberglass, but cost and material would lend them to damage and a loss. Plastic works. Any thing like this in Fett?
I am pushing for an ESB as for to me this is the Fett that I remember the most and it will complement my TK and Vader as they are ESB.
