    Aug 7, 2008, 5:38 PM - Difference between ESB and ROTJ jetpacks. #1

    Besides the paint job, are there any other differences. I'm sure this has been asked many times before, I tried a search, and basically got tired of searching...Thanks guys!

    Rockets are Different Sz, and the fin count may be different.

    I Disagree
    The Rockets are the same.(And the Jet Packs are too I believe)
    ESB does have holes in the rocket that I can't see on ROTJ.

    this is a picture of a ROTJ pack that you painted Nate and an ESB that Darthmiller painted, the rockets look a little different to me. I guess it depends on who you buy it from.

    I was talking about the real Jet Packs, not repro's
    The Top one is an MLC1
    & the bottom one is a MOW
    so, obviously they are different

    you can't compare fan made props though... that's got nothing to do with accurate, that just different interpretations of something.

    i'd be amazed if the packs were physically different in any major way.

    sorry guys, no need to heat up the popcorn. I jumped the gun on this one. it must be a coinsidence that all the ESB packs i've seen here are MOW and the ROTJ version are MLC's. I was'nt trying to come off as a "know it all" and I apologize. I'll do my homework before I post next time.

    Does anyone here wish that they never would have changed the paint scheme from ESB? I am doing SE and every time I see the ROTJ paint up I start whistling circus music (I have seen less festive carosels) instead of thinking of "Combat Ready". Maybe I am the only one...

    Good point boomer! I never really cared for the color scheme on the ROTJ pack.
