    Nov 1, 2012, 12:28 PM - Dressing a Bounty Hunter in 40 Stages - A Black and White Story #1

    I always liked the various dressing stages of the Supertrooper and the Pre-Pro #1 suits found in the TDH Gallery (the Promo #1 armor and vest was added in lack of other sources). So I said, it's time to do a silent step by step 'documentation' (because images worth more than 1000 words) with the dressing of the best Bounty Hunter in the whole galaxy: BOBA FETT.

    Thanks! I assume that what you see there is the lower part of the vest, and is accidentally hanging out under the left arm.

    This is a really informative photo. I've haven't seen anyone construct their flight suit quite like this yet (hose eyelets in the back, what looks like adjustable cuffs, built-in neck seal, etc.)

    I agree! The whole Supertrooper/Boba Fett suit was made with great care and attention to each and every detail and looking to all the images posted in the first post everyone can see the complexity of the Boba Fett suit.

    By the way, thanks for making this thread a 'sticky'!

    Thanks! These are all images from the TDH Gallery and I advise everybody to check it more often, especially when you need reference to build or paint a particular part of the suit.

    Stage-38 after stage-32 and stage-25 after stage-38 - In stage-25 we can see Johnston attaching the cape to the jetpack clip, so the cape show-off (stage-38) should go before that image, but after the image with the grappling hook inserted in the jetpack (stage-32).

    In the Supertrooper suit was Alan Harris (the whole suit was build around him, but he played Bossk in the end) and in the Pre-Pro #1 suit (according to the Star Wars Chronicles) was Bruce Nicholson.

    Looks like I need to upgrade my jetpack harness with four large square d-rings instead of the plastic clips currently on.

    The first post was updated with a new image order for the sake of continuity (moved 2 images in other sequence) and for more info check out post #15 with more explanation (post already updated with that info). Sorry for this 'new' arrangement, but it seems that each and every part of the whole suit must be in its natural stage (to avoid stages like putting the helmet or the cape on and after 3-4 images he has them off).

    And by the way, thanks for posting the link for this thread on the TDH facebook page (while I'm not a facebook fan and I don't have an account there, I still check out the TDH page for cool updates)!

    Ok this is a stupid question, what belt do the hip pouches go on, the ammo or girth belt? I can't seem to figure it out.

    Most of the suit variants used this type of pouch with the loop on top; exception was the Pre-Pro #3 and ESB suits (basically the same soft parts), which had an extension with velcro on one side and it was attached to the ammo belt from the inside. The same pouch is present in the AoSW and C-IV exibits, but this time (in lack of the ESB ammo belt?) the pouch is sewn to the girth belt:
