    My first outing with my Fett!

    My local group had a function at an elementary school. We had a tent set up as a detention facility, and parents/kids could pay $1.00 to have one of our members help them locate and capture a victim to place in the detention facility for three minutes.

    The cash all went to ASK (charity) and it was a great time. The kids really freaked out when we arrived - it was a surprise to many of them. We all marched out of the school to the Imperial March, and we were mobbed!

    It was my first event in my Boba Fett (ROTJ), without rifle (school event rule). I found that I need to raise my jet pack a bit, it got droopy after a while of walking around, but otherwise - what a great time!

    I have some pictures of the event below, unfortunately only a couple of my Boba. My wife was trying to take pictures and manage our own three year old just having a blast at the same time.

    I think seeing the kid's reactions is one are some of the best parts of being 501st. I remember I was in my Fett at Caesars Palace and this kid looked up at me and just shouted, "BOBA FETT!" He had the largest smile on his face, I think I was more excited to see him that he was to see me.

    Dude... That is awesome

    I've been working on my Fett suit and the whole time I've really been wondering where I'm going to wear it.

    man, that's so cool. I wish I had a suit that would be recognized my kids and adults alike, but alas I have only my custom mando.

    I'm glad you had a great time, and I'm glad your son and wife did too.

    Sweet! Looks like everyone had an awesome time, which is what it's all about! I remember back when I was in elementary school, we had something like that where you could put someone into a "prison." I got put in there like 3 friggin' times!

    Oh man, in that first picture, the green-shirted kid is running like mad!

    The trooper in the second pic looks lost without a blaster to hold.

    I've been to two funfairs at a friend's school that had those, I was never put in. I put my friend in once, though. She was doing the cake walk and I thought she could use a break.

    I honestly don't understand what you guys are talking about with the whole prison thing, but it sounds like it was fun anyway.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Yes, as far as blasters...we all felt a little out of place without them. However, due to the amount of kids (and pulling and tugging) both the school and our group decided to leave the guns behind.

    I know its hard to see, but in the first picture - the Sandtrooper in the lead had an 8 foot long dewback prod with him. That was outstanding for "clearing the path" before us.

    I need to do some minor changes to my Boba (dirty up the cloth parts a little) and change the way a few pieces fit.

    Thanks again for the comments! My Boba would NEVER have been possible without my friends here on TDH.

    Well with the amount of children at the event, he should be dirtied up like a sandtrooper should be at the end of the day

    That's fantastic! The expressions on the kids faces are priceless. I can't wait to get my gear done so I can experience the same feeling. Thanks for sharing the pics.

    I can explain it for you:
    The ones I went to, you gave them like 2 tickets (10 for $1) and they would put one person of your choice into a roped off area or a small hut they built for a prison. The person would be in there for 10-20 minutes and then released. I was never put in, but I had them throw my friend in twice. She was standing on her feet all day and I thought she could use a rest.

    I hope that answered you question.

    I'm a small person, so when I was little those bars were just too wide to keep me in!

    Well today I'm 5'9 and 120lbs, so I'm sure I could still fit though, I can jam myself into high school lockers! Only the broken ones though, I'm not stupid enough to go into one in which I can get stuck in.

    it's rough! i've had a few troops where weapons weren't allowed, and i didn't know what to do with myself!

    the photos look great. school events are always cool, since the kids REALLY get into it.
