    Hello everyone I am in need of some assistance. I have been looking at some reference pics trying to identify what film these Boba Fett boots are from, any help identifying them would be greatly appreciated.

    I saw those same boots and thought someone had attempted a custom Mando. I don't know if they were supposed to be any other prop. Also I didn't think they could be made to be a pair of Fett boots without some reasonable amount of modifications

    I've never worn them myself, but they definately are not canon. You can paint them if you wish, but they lack the square toe. You may be able to get away with painting them.

    I think I will just get myself a pair of CA boots. Hopefully a 13.5 will fit me, fingers crossed.

    There is a photo of the boots on their website. They always have horrible pictures to hide the quality of their props.

    And he ran off to the Phillipines becuase he is a sex offender in the United States, and there is no extradition in the Philipines I guess.

    Yeah I saw those, I had been thinking about buying a few pieces that they have but hadn't really been convinced about how their stuff looked.

    People do buy from until they visit TDH. Like my GML, for some reason he just likes SFP, I can't stand that crap, and I hate it when he walks around in that suit. THe SFP gauntlets weigh about 15lbs EACH. I have no idea how he can wear those, I love my "light as a feather" Ruffkintoy gauntlets.
