I want to build a kids boba fett armor or at least a mandalorian kids size one, helmet or armor or both would work, what do you think one of these thing weighs, and what type of metal or plastic or whatever do you use?:jet pack
Hi there! Since this is your first posting you should introduce yourself to the Sarlacc Pit so that everyone will get to know you a bit. But to answer your query on kid's mando armor HERE is a link on how to do it the easy and cost effective way. Hope this helps!
seems like this is a very popular concept in doing a kid fett. I am doing one myself and a lot of ideas can translate but there still remains a lot of questions. Such as where to get a vest , helmet and belts the right size not to mention the fett rifle and jet pack.
was thinking about using a soda bottle and those nifty Jolt cans into a little guys jet pack. Along with some foam core board. Still not sure what to make the little missle out of
from what the kids parents told me there was a little girl dressed up as belle and she threw a nearly epic fit when she didn't win.
bahahaha take that disney
Fett - 1
Disney - 0
Send me a pm, I specialize in kids armor for cheap.
If interested, i spend 1,5 months to build the Boba Kid Fett (13 years old) and have found some good tricks to make it lightweight, more accurate as possible.
I started with the templates found on TDH (great !) then cut into plastic (like trashcan tip). I only bought the helmet (Rubies). Everything else is custom made (even the gauntlets made with plastiroc on PVC tube).

(color of the picture is not very accurate (gauntlets are reds not pink), some improvements have been done since the first build).
