    ESB Fett from Tasmania

    About a year ago I suddenly had a bunch of time on my hands. I'd already built a mando, but I really wanted to do an ESB Fett. The idea initially was a scratch budget build, but inevitably, when cash flow permitted, I just had to get my hands on some of the awesome work by these craftspeople from every corner of the globe. It's such a cool international community.

    The fett list of ingredients so far:

    Man of War boots, gloves and vest.
    Arkady flightsuit and pouches.
    RKD chest armour and knees.
    Woodman cape and braids.
    TK409 chest display.
    Fenix dart launchers and wrist darts.
    Trooper bay decals.
    99 cent taco ammo belt.
    Bobamaker MQ1.
    Boba Trooper gauntlets (painted too by Bobatrooper.. Thanks Dave).
    The jetpack I got busted up second hand, and gave it a general pimping. I think it might be related to older golden armor vacuform packs but not sure.


    Scratch built remaining armour parts, EE3, sidearm, holster, toe spikes, harness, buckle, girth belt, shin tools and bucket I cast myself from molds sourced locally.
    Painted and weathered with some artistic licence by yours truly, using references from here.

    Some snaps from a couple of troops over the last two weeks. I'm learning to relax and kind of just enjoy the suit at the moment... and not just want to fix and upgrade etc etc..

    I am surprised though at just how much love the Fett gets at troops and events. He is a popular mofo.

    I'm not sure about the pedigree of the helmet. I rotocast it in a mold provided by a local 501st dude. The buck had "re casters suck" etched into the visor section. 😉
