    New Member with questions and needing direction for a ROTJ build

    Hello - I am a long time Boba Fett fan, I had the original mail order Fett as well as the 12" figure that you could look through his helmet. I collect tons of the toys today and have been building and designing costumes my whole life and have been always putting Boba off in the distance as the "ultimate challenge."

    I can navigate the site fairly well, but even well worded searches don't seem to be givig me the results I need, so I was hoping some generous members can give me a push in the right direction.

    First I need a complete parts list for a ROTJ Fett
    Second I need suggestions for amazing threads/tutorials that can help guide me
    Third, I would love your advice for retailers/sellers for the various parts.

    I can't sew, but I can paint and craft. I plan to take about 2 years, so I don't mind going the inexpensive route that requires more "talent." (but I can't sew).

    I do want screen accuracy, I do want working LED, I do want a voice modulator. I don't know that I want a gun, but I would still want information on its components or a good source to get a kit from.

    So any links to galleries, sellers, tutorials, sources, fact and other fun stuff is greatly appreciated.

    Soft Parts
    Galactic Bounty Hunter (gloves)
    Ladysewforus (all soft parts)
    woodman (braids, capes)


    Greeblies and Extras
    booboofett (ammo belts, metal harness, jetpack hooks)
    Mojo-Fett (pretty much anything aluminum that you need, sidearm for ESB, metal harness)


    Weapons
    FettDad
    Sidewinder
    Stormrider


    Graphics

    Re: New Member with questions and needing direction for a ROTJ build

    Ok so I would say this...fettprides stuff is great and affordable hit him up for armor gaunts helmet, as far jetpack BFUKs stuff is closest IMHO not perfect but its closest. His shintools are the real deal but only once and a while does he make them...U have the soft parts down hit those people up slaveI is making a neck seal thats really sweet looking I have Loanstars soft parts and theyre not to bad really Booboo Fetts parts are AWESOME I have his belt and his Metal harness rig hands down way overbuilt but worth it...Id rather be safe than sorry...wouldnt think of a soft harness after using it. Mojos ali is great, Fettdad does great work on them blasters, if I wasnt able to paint and assemble stuff Id have bought a ROTJ one from him. Plan to get an ESB from him...the graphics from Lucksy IMHO are just OK not great really being theyre just vinal cut and layered...Im not a huge bobamaker fan but his decals can come preweathered per Art of star wars even...I like his decals...for the chest and shoulder the jetpack stuff should be painted on anyways so I painted mine on...dont know what slave1pilots graphics are? Painting Pontes a good friend his work is REDICULOUS for an ESB helmet Id let him do one if I couldnt paint also...Slave1pilot again awesome painter...deadland Ive seen like one of his helmets looked legit...I also paint and have just started doing others stuff now that my fett is pretty complete (as complete as you can get really minus the new helmet fettprides offering the GMH) Its a long expensive road but its worth it in the end...PM the guys everyones very professional and helpful

    Re: New Member with questions and needing direction for a ROTJ build

    Man quite a list you have going there and a good one at that the only thing that I can see missing is FettPride for the bucket along with Boba Maker and Man Of war for boots. Otherwise everyone on there is great at what they offer and if you have any question about any of them just ask there are plenty of people on here that will vouch for each of them as all reputable.

    Oh and welcome to the boards!!!

    You may also want to add Serenity and RusRep for Ali parts as well. Also can add tk409 and fettronics for chest display .

    Lucksy sells a crapload of decals so we just do a few here and there. No biggie.
    Like I said though, Matt is still recovering from being newly Hitched, so i'll post up on those threads when he has more in hand.

    ah so his member name is NOT BFUK....yea, I had Bobby's info - thanks.

    I noticed some people use Humbrol paint? Is there a paint list for an ROTJ Fett? I saw the Jet Pack colors... are there armor and gauntlet guide colors? Or do people recommended a different paint? I am more of a shake can man myself.
