    has anyone done this?

    I was wondering if any one has done an unweathered boba, like before boba started taking names. that would be a cool concept boba with all new gear, no dent, and no stripes. preferably ESB. let me know if anyone has done this. thanks

    Well, I guess he started with a "Clean" suit at one point.

    I believe it has been photoshopped, but an unweathered Boba would be like the Mall Cop of the galaxy.

    I don't think that Boba's armor when brand new would necessarily be flat, it could easily have been glossy or at least semi-gloss (probably the most realistic likelihood) and dulled to flat green and red over the years as a result of everything he's been through. After all, Jango wore blue and silver so who's to say that Boba's armor wasn't much shinier when it was brand new although I wonder how Jango managed to maintain his armor and keep it looking so nice and new while Boba's is banged up, scratched, and scorched; considering that Boba was Jango's clone and if Jango liked to keep his armor nice and shiny wouldn't Boba be pre-disposed to do the same? Or was it a case of Boba doing a lot more (dirty) work during the days of the Empire than Jango did during the Old Republic?

    Re: has anyone done this?

    riceball, you kinda just blew my mind a little bit. and ya I think youre right where boba fett is in constant motion throughout the galaxie, jango has a place to kick it on the weekends(kamino) and he probably has a lot more time and money to maintain his armor. well thanks for the input guys. I dont think I'll be changing my fett any time soon, as I am quite fond of pre pro. but it would be a sick project for some one to take on. keep me posted if some one decides to do it.

    Re: has anyone done this?

    From what I have researched, the concept of Boba Fett's armor being brand new is inconceivable coz he acquired used and battle damaged armor from other Mandalorians like Jester Mereel to make at least 3 sets which probably explains why he has the ESB, Prepro and ROTJ versions. Just my thoughts on the subject.

    Re: has anyone done this?

    No to go too far off topic but I was under the impression he started with Jango's set that was re-fitted to his size and then painted it the colors we're all familliar with, and then gathered the pieces of the three sets using the green/red combo.
    considering that Boba was Jango's clone and if Jango liked to keep his armor nice and shiny wouldn't Boba be pre-disposed to do the same? Or was it a case of Boba doing a lot more (dirty) work during the days of the Empire than Jango did during the Old Republic?
    Personally I would assume Boba being a clone (more in line with the ARCs) with the whole independence thing going would be inclined not to care about looks but about use/functionallity, add that to doing all the dirty work in the Galaxy would lead to the grimy/beaten/used armor set we see.

    Re: has anyone done this?

    Well, but, before he was "green and red", Boba was grey (all the helmet except the back pannels) so that's what we can see under the red and the green.

    So it's a grey bucket.

    And the armour was yellow xD

    I think you misunderstood what I meant. What I meant that is if Jango liked to keep his armor nice and shiny then wouldn't Boba be inclined to do so as well seeing as how he was a Jango clone and one rasied by Jango no less? Granted that experiences and upbringing would keep Boba from being a carbon copy of Jango but he would have pretty much the same personality (more or less) and inclinations as Jango so I would think that between a combination of his genetics and his time being raised by Jango would have made Boba more likely to keep his armor nice and shiny as well. Of course he didn't have the chance to grow up all the way to adulthood with Jango and the galaxy was probably also a rougher, wilder place during the Empire than it was during the Old Republic.

    Again, it seems like we're going a bit off topic but, I understood exactly what you stated, I agree with most of it just not all of it.

    Re: has anyone done this?

    Boba is said to have several sets of armor, in a variety of colors with mission specific waepaons and armor plating. So, who really knows how many sets he actually has? In the LotF books, he still has Jango's armor and has considered wearing a piece of it in traditional Mandalorian style but I confirmed with Karen Traviss that by the end of the series, he had never done so. So, with what we've actually seen in the SWU, we know he has the ESB and ROTJ sets, the prepro is more a combo of sets t hen likely to be it's own set. He also has the set he lost that was claimed by Jodo Kast (can anyone enlighten is Jodo repainted it or left is stock?). We also have seen the Animated style armor and per the books know he still has Jango's. We could also say that the "White Fett" armor, although it never went beyond the concept phase, could be a set he has.

    Going back to the original question, Has anyone done a clean Boba... there's a member of the Mando Mercs, Ge'tal Gratua that has a clean set of Boba armor. He is a prop builder from Malaysia and I believe he frequents these forums from time to time. He hand builds all of his armor, without the use of commercial templates, and uses sometimes bizarre materials but, his armor is top notch in appearance. The clean Boba set he has matches Boba's known cannon color preferances but, is not cannon as far as gaunt type etc. So, technically, it's a custom Boba. I'll see if I can pull a couple pix and post them here.

    Re: has anyone done this?

    Here are a couple pix of the clean Boba, which has a couple scratches but no dents or carbon scoring, also threw in a couple of his other custom sets he's built.

    This is about the "newest" set of Boba armor I know of that's been built. I haven't asked so I can't be sure if this is young Boba or LotF new beskar'gam Boba.

    Enjoy

    Re: has anyone done this?

    Firstly I believe Boba's armor was Jaster Mereel's. Secondly, contrary to what has been stated here, Jango's armor was not clean.
