What are the differences between Boba's ROTJ outfit and his Special Edition outfit?
Yes been covered time and time again...basically...ROTJ SE has more pouches hip pouches are different, the ESB helmet was used...the ROTJ STUNT pack was used....some of the knee armor was used from pre production Wookie braids are ESB....all sorts of little things like only 1 gaunt hose on the right gaunt instead of 3 in ROTJ...but go ahead search a little
I don't really see the need in treating people like this. Who cares how many times it's been covered if you don't want to offer any info don't post. There are new guys every day.
SE braids are a design all their own as well different from ESB &ROTJ.
Here are the difference between the ROTJ Hero and the ROTJ SE (this was already posted in other threads):
1 - The helmet is the ESB Hero and not the ROTJ Hero.
2 - The whole armor is painted in the ROTJ scheme, but the only ROTJ Hero parts on this suit are the left gauntlet (not present in all the ROTJ SE stills), the back plate and the back belt, while the right gauntlet (not present in all the ROTJ SE stills - the gauntlet is slightly modified, more exactly they replaced the whipcord housing, the hose connector is different and they also added some paint touch-ups) and the left knee were part of the Pre-Pro #2 suit.
3 - The jetpack is ROTJ Hero (only in the ROTJ SE stills), although in the ROTJ SE (the movie) they used one of the damaged jetpacks.
4 - The wookie braids looks like Pre-Pro #3/ESB Hero, but the cape might be from one of the ESB Promo suits or possibly the Pre-Pro #2 (no evidence on this).
5 - There are 14 ammo pouches (versus 8 on ROTJ), which were part of one of the mismatched ESB Promo suits.
6 - The soft parts might be from any suit (except the Pre-Pro #2 vest which is present in the archives with most of the original armor parts).

Thank you guys for the help! I really appreciate it!
Well said woody. I couldn't agree more.
A lot of guys will just plop an ESB helmet onto an ROTJ costume and call themselves ROTJ:SE, when in actuality they don't put on the 4 extra belt pouches, the hose on the left gauntlet, etc....which would qualify them as that costume.
There's 5 different Lucasfilm ROTJ jetpacks that we know about on TDH, so basically just pick whichever weathering scheme you like and follow that one. They were all over the place with the paintjobs on them, too. Some have a dark blue and a bright yellow, others have a bright blue and a dark yellow, etc.
This is excellent info....... Thank you for sharing......
14? Cool. I thought I had remembered 12. Either way, the majority of those guys that call themselves SE Bobas need to add more pouches. lol
I know this has been covered, but the fact of the matter is that sometimes it helps to re-bring it up so some of us get a chance to see it and understand there are more differences than originally thought when we took on the build.... Thanks guys!
Speaking of the differences, does anyone make a 14 pouch SE belt? I see makers selling multiple SE belts with 10-12 pockets, but none with 14.....
I think you can request from the maker to add pouches.
Hmm. I will have to try that, because it would seem silly to not get a 14 pouch belt, but be super intense on everything else. Haha.
What were the colors of the knees and shoulder bells?
All orange/yellow? Hard to tell in the pictures....
And a BIG thanks to Woodman and RafalFett.
I believe the shoulders and knees are all the saame color for ROTJ. I've used rattlecan Krylon Equipment yellow for the ROTJ shoulders and knees. I think i used Krylon signal yellow underneath(for around the silver scratches) ..i cant remember. Its not a dead on match, could stand to be a little more orangey, but i think it looks very close. I havent done ROTJ with airbrush yet so havent gotten to try out suggestions.
Here is a set i did with these rattlecan colors(pre "dirt" weathering) The color here looks brighter than it actually is though:
Heres some screen shots so you can see the actual color:
Ya know looking at the screen shots and the shoulders i had done in the past...the rust color i airbrushed onto the one shoulder looks like it makes the yellow closer to the correct color if lightly misted over it...ya learn somethin every day lol
*I'd also like to thank Woodman for his earlier comment. I dont know why people have to get condescending when someone asks a question that has been covered. I have used the search and ya know, trying to find very specific info, even with the search is very difficult, if not impossible. Ive tried it.
