    Looking for pictures

    I am going to be making a ROTJ Boba Fett and I was wondering if there is a place where I can get good quality pictures of all the components from many angles from one source. A high quality replica would be ideal, (I have already looked over the available original pictures). Please, only pictures of top end movie accurate Fett pieces. No WIP. Thanks to anyone who knows such a thread/site.

    You shouldn't really use replicas as a reference: every replica has flaws, so if you work from a replica you will duplicate that person's mistakes and then make more of your own.

    Working from the original source is really the best way to go.

    The gallery here has literally thousands of reference images of the screen used suit from exhibits, movie stills and other sources. Much better reference than fan made props.

    If you really insist on looking at replicas, you aren't going to find a definitive guide that way. You'll have to just look through the various threads here.

    Well I can't seem find good quality, close up original pics that give me a complete picture. I just thought there might be a trusted replica that is as movie accurate as they come, with hi quality pictures. But I will continue browsing the gallery. One way or another, I will find a decent collection of pictures of all the different parts. And thank you stormtrooperguy, I've saved your rattlecan color thread a few days ago as part of my preparing for this project. Very helpful.

    The trick is piecing things together... you don't find, say, 1 perfect pic of the helmet. You find a perfect pic of the lower right corner of the face. Then a pic of the upper right. When I'm painting a helmet I have 20 or so pics I flip through. Same with the gaunts, pack, etc...

    Noted. I will take your advice and compile photos from the gallery. This will most definitely seem like a dumb question, but are the Star Wars Celebration 4, magic of Myth, etc. the actual props used from the movie or are they the pre pro models or something else?

    Everything you are looking for is found in those galleries... literally thousands of the highest resolution images of the original costume. More so than you can find anywhere else online.

    The suits from those museum galleries are original props used in the filming of the movies. Which movies depend upon which suit you are looking at. The Magic of Myth was straight up Return of the Jedi while the more recent exibits were the ROTJ Special Edition suits which mixed a few parts from RoTJ, ESB and the Pre-Pro suit.

    Yes theyre screen used peices, there are different helmets mind you and jetpacks in AOSW and MOM as well as knee armor just try and stick to the one you like AOSW is what most call the Special Edition Fett from ROTJ, and MOM is more the traditional ROTJ Boba

    Yeah the Gallery has it coverd,
    Im sure you know this but, once youve pulled the srceen full of pics on the lower left hand(your left) of the sreen there are numbers to difrent pages(i didnt see this for a good year of using it) and if you clik on each pic it is blown up to full in high ress
    Like already pointed out , if you go by replicas you are getting some one elses interpritation on a costume , and will get the chinesse wisper afect,
