    Jan 19, 2011, 8:57 PM - RoTJ Boba Fett Build #1

    i have begun to put together a return of the jedi boba suit and thought i would post my progress to get some feedback and advice
    i am 18 and a student so parts will be bought as i can afford them and obviously I'm working on as tight a budget as possible. well here it goes... enjoy!

    cheers, Ben

    i kicked my Fett off with a pair off these gauntlets off Ebay from a guy in Morecambe as they were very cheap and im on a budget. i wouldn't recommend these unless you have experience with fibreglass, the gauntlets were warped so i had to have outside help lining them up.

    gauntlets ready to paint after many weeks of work by a friend to correct the warping


    painted gauntlets, just weathering left to do, and a set of darts to buy and fit

    looking good so far.

    ebay is always tempting, but it rarely works out well. i'd say you're lucky that you got such nice looking results out of it!

    but, on that note, you've got the front of the flamethrower on upside down. no clue what that was a separate piece, but it's not supposed to angle down in the front like that. the top should be straight.

    Lookin Great! That JP is awesome!! Not to be a debbi downer, but the bucket looks like ESB to me, any one else feel free to chime in. You could always go Special edition though

    thanks for the comments and feedback everyone, im aiming to just get a complete suit together before snagging at the finer details, one of which is now the flamethrower box. i thought the helmet was ESB too, ROTJ should have silver ears i think? so does SE Fett just have an ESB lid? or is it just more similar?

    Its always been my understanding that the SE Fett is the ROTJ Suit with the ESB Lid...Not positive on that though as I am a Pure ROTJ.

    The ROTJ Helmet does have silver ears, but the kill stripes are different colors as well and the battle damage is different as well. Check the gallaries and really scrutinize the pics!

    Looking good mate, I had those exact same gauntlets so I know the work you put into them, also got the same JP as well, beautiful pack and a great paint job as well
    On the SE vs ROTJ, the main difference is the lid, there are other little changes such as 10 pouches on the SE ammo belt, 1 grey and 1 tan ammo/belt pouches and I think there are different wookie braids as well. Although I wouldn't really worry about that as some of the SE fetts in the UKG dont have the small changes. Others with more experience will probably chime in if ive missed any .
