I'd be interested but can't commit since already getting his classic. Depending on the time frame for this, I'm a maybe.
Is this a kit or are they going to be finished? What the heck, I'm in too.
This will be already assembled. The only thing that will need to be attched are the thrusters & probably the nose cones just to make it easier for shipping. It will be very much like the classic that Rex is handling.
Very cool. Get started on that baby
I'm in the same boat as Mirax. Count me in as a possible maybe as well.
Ain't it true about TDH? There's never a shortage of what to spend FettFunds on!!
Oh so VERY true, Rex! If I ever see an end to all this upgraded Fettspending, it won't come soon enough!
Just a heads up. This project will take some time for those of you scraping up enough $. I have to send Mardon one of my harnesses so the jet pack has a perfect mate! I will also offer a price break on these as well when purchased with the JP.
Yeah, I think this project is a go! :-)
Folks, kindly help us out & send reference Jango JP pics to Vince so he can collect & send it to me. Its really not a biggie in regards to details as compared to Boba's JP....but just to be on the safe side :-)
From the preliminary looks of it, the 3 missile tips would have to be permanent for durability (molded as one with the main body) while the thrusters would be a plug-in option.
Rear panel is still up in the air & would depend entirely on Vince's harness that he's sending. Maybe there will and maybe there wont....
Im REALLY interested!!!!!!!
Make me a yes for this now
Just a small update:
For those interested to see how I attached a hydration/camelbak pack option to the JP, kindly send me your e-mail & I'll send you pics :-)
We're starting on the first run this coming Monday for those who have sent their orders to Rex.
The first batch of jet packs are under construction as we speak. Soon, they will be in the hands of Fett enthusiasts!
Man, I can't wait for mine!!!
A quick update here as well. The classic JPs are being pulled starting this week & one of them will be the donor for the stubby design. I am in the process of collecting reference material for the different details but there are not too many pictures of this pack. If any of you have some great detail shots, please post them here so we can get the most accurate JP possible. I have also sent Mardon a harness so he can incorporate attachment points into the design. I'll keep you posted as progress is made in the coming weeks.
Don't know if you have this pic but thought I'd post it.
Heres another one.
Thanks & keep those pics coming!
Does anyone have a good ref. pic of the
missle vent on Jango's jet pack? I'm trying
hard to sculpt out a nice one to make a mold
for and I keep seeing the pictures of it
from just one angle (over the top of the
pack facing out). Any help finding a good
ref. pic would be great!
'SOB' I'm broke, out of a job and have a ton of bills to pay and I still want that M Jet Pack...go figure! J/K
Great looking JP Mardon, can't wait till my bonus gets in so I can blow it all on your creations!
5 JPs running full steam at the moment & completion time for all 5 by late next week. Will ship all to Rex's addy in Ca.
are there any established prices yet? Or did I miss something?
Yup, there are established prices Jedi-Bob!
The jet pack is $280,w/ shipping from Mardon to me at $40-
So, it costs $320- to get it from Mardon to me.
Five jet packs get put into a large wooden crate on their way to me. Then I buy sturdy boxes, packing material etc. They are shipped (unless otherwise arranged) US Priority Mail, Confirmation Delivery, Insured.
As soon as this crate arrives, I will know the final, final domestic shipping charge to everyone. I will PM those who have paid, those on the list, as well as posting the final total costs.
By popular demand...The jet packs will come w/ the thrusters hollowed out, a removable backplate, and the grill thingie (aaugh! I can't remember what it is...exhaust?) w/ the area between the slats cut out.
The jet packs will require very little effort to prep before painting. As with the MLC Helmet, little to no sanding is required. Just glue the thrusters on, attach the backplate to your specifications- (screws, velcro, etc) and paint!
It does not come w/ a beacon. Again, by popular demand, most were getting BKBT's light-up beacon to install anyway...
To get in on the next batch of five JP's, send in your payment as soon as you can. Who wants to wait any longer for a jet pack?!
take care all,
Any rough idea on the price of these? But I am interested.
