    Has any research been done into the parts of the grappling rocket? I'm specifically interested in the metal sleeve and fins on the supertrooper costume. From the best I can tell this part looks to be either the base off of an old military surplus rocket/missile or part of a rocket flare. I have found some very similar parts but very few seem to only have three fins. Also does anyone know the width of the metal band that the fins mount to on the supertrooper rocket?

    Here's a shot of the actual rocket. It's actually machined and if I remember correctly Anovos said the rocket was machined in shop for the jetpacks for the movies. I could be 100% wrong so please someone correctly me if I'm wrong.

    Interesting image @rnbuda. Do you have a hires image of that? Also, where you did that shot? That grappling hook/rocket is the original Supertrooper/Pre-Pro #1 part later borrowed for Pre-Pro #2, then for one of the promo suit:

    Rafal, sorry I think thats the highest res I have. They were taken with an iPhone at Celebration Anaheim during the Anovos panel. Here's all their Fett slides.
