    BH-8990 is officially back

    Approved today. More detail and parts list to come, but thanks to Fettpride, Crazy4bobafett, Slave1pilot, Fettdad, BFUK, Mojo-Fett, Woodman, and 99centtaco for starters! Got a few tweaks I want to make (so no need to point them out! lol), but it's a solid foundation. The suit looks a lot more grey than it does in reality, but try as I may I couldn't get photos to show that:



    It's good to be back.

    -Chris

    I'll try to get some together at some point, Nate. My submission photos were "meh" at the different angles, but here's a pretty good outdoor photo from the event:



    Funny how the weathering gets washed out. I thought I had overdone some of it!

    Ain't it, though My suit is almost embarrassingly filthy in person!
    Nice looking ESB. Great job!

    Excellent work mate. If my Fett looks anywhere near as good I'll be happy.

    Sexy as always, Chris. HAHAHAHA

    Looks fantastic! I was soooooo close to following your lead and switching to ESB. I decided against it though and will be making myself a full ROTJ instead. Far easier for me at this point given the fact I'm switching from ROTJ Special Ed.

    Fantastic looking suit. I am not generally an ESB fan, but you really nailed it.

    Once I stop being fat I'll get back to working on Boba. For now I have to work on the 20 pounds I've gained since I "finished" the suit.

    For starters, much <3 to all of you and especially to Bob and Brian. You guys are a constant source of inspiration and I only wish I lived closer to MA.

    You have no idea how tough it was to finally pull the trigger. There was a lot of love in that old suit and a lot more of me and my work than in this one. But it's in good hands. Still think I was half crazy to start all over. lol

    Best of luck on your conversion/enhancement!

    Ughh...don't get me started. I was REAL close to buying that Shakeology off of you a few months back. I need to drop the 15+ I put on since October when I had to stop working out. Best of luck to us both, I guess.
