    Greetings fellow bounty hunters. Over the past 2 years I have been photographing my buddies from the 501st Legion Indonesian Outpost at their events (view some of them here: https://www.facebook.com/tennantlim....os/?tab=albums) and I was inevitably "convinced" to join them. Boba Fett has always been my favorite character so he was the obvious choice for my build. At some point soon after this decision, I thought to myself "What the hell have I gotten myself into now?!".

    Deciding on the version was easy; I love the ESB bucket paint job and the colors on the ROTJ costume, so I will be building the ROTJ SE film version. Here is the breakdown of items and vendors I ordered from;

    Helmet and complete armor + chest lights - Bobamaker
    RF light & servo kit - Jc27
    Gauntlets - Bobamaker
    Jetpack - Bobamaker
    JP harness - Bigdane
    JP hooks, clips and rings - full metal fett
    US Divers buckle replica - full metal fett
    Shin tools - Bobamaker
    Flightsuit - Bobamaker
    Neck seal, vest, pouches and spats - Arkady
    Wookie braids - woodman
    Girth belt - woodman
    Ammo belt - Bobamaker
    Cape - woodman
    Gloves - Major
    Boots (with spikes) - Bobamaker
    Blaster - Sidewinder kit with metal scope mounts
    Scott & Webley vintage 4 x 20 scope - intwenothor

    Sounds good until this time.

    The Animefan helmet will be also an good decision.
    I got mine this month and I have to say it is an asset for my collection.

    Hi Kev. Thanks for your suggestion and I'm sure the Animefan helmet is a great product. I am committed to the BM helmet already along with the paint and weathering job, so I'll stick with that.

    Btw congrats on your facehugger bounty

    Just a warning, if you are going for ROTJ SE approval in 501st there are essentially two versions...the film version and promo version. Paint jobs, armor, and some other minor details are different between the two versions. I strongly recommend reaching out to @Major the BH DL lead who is currently getting the CRL ready for publishing on the 501st site. You can find some 501st info on Sign In - The Bounty Hunters Guild

    I also sell the gauntlet lights with some options as well as a helmet system that can power servo rf systems as well.

    Appreciate the heads up. I've checked the CRL on BHG for the differences between the 2 versions and will be going with the film version (which I mentioned). As far as I am aware, I have planned the purchases along that path thus far but I will certainly check with @Major when my build starts to take shape.

    When the time comes, I will reach out to you on the systems you're offering. Particularly interested in the servo power hook up to fans that saves a lot of space, but I'm not sure if you are able to ship batteries overseas.

    I've shipped systems to UK and Australia, if you are paying the shipping lol. My reason for telling you to talk to major was the CRL will be different most likely by the time you get your stuff from Daz.

    Received a bunch of items and couldn’t wait to start working on them! I must commend every vendor I mentioned below for their excellent craftsmanship, and also a huge gratitude to several members for their exceptionally inspiring and detailed build threads.

    I'll start with the jet pack harness.



    Breakdown of parts;
    - Harness from Bigdane.
    - US Divers buckle replica from full metal fett.
    - 2 inch Seatbelt webbing from Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    - Triglides from Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I adapted the strapping methods from the awesome tutorials by The5thHorseman for the shoulder straps - http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f20/h...ett-esb-52297/ and full metal fett for the belt strapping - http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f20/d...utorial-52081/.

    Some changes I made to my rig;
    The strap ends that attach to the top of the harness are installed using triglides instead of sewing them up to allow further adjustments if needed.



    The same triglides are also used to connect the upper and lower shoulder straps.



    Sewed up all the ends to finish off except for the loose strap on the belt. Otherwise it won’t fit through the buckle.



    This will do for now as I wait for the jetpack and the back armor to work out the rest of the alignment and rigging.

    Cape from woodman. Before weathering...



    ...after weathering. Bashed a rock on the edges, sprayed black on the holes and gave it a light misting.
