    Sep 8, 2008, 4:41 AM - Shin Tool Placement #1

    Hey guys!

    I bet this question has been asked a thousand times: What is the proper placement of the shin tools in a ROTJ and ROTJ SE Fett??

    I canīt seem to find anything about it..

    I hope you get an answer! I know I am curious.

    Also, where did you get your shin tools? I need to find a set.

    There is no definitive answer. If you go through RotJ shots you will see the shin tools magically move from shot to shot. However, there are two main setups for RotJ, although they aren't exclusive.

    Most often seen in Jabba's Palace:
    right leg outer - jet pack adjustment tool
    right leg inner - sonic beam weapon

    left leg outer - survival knife
    left leg inner - anti-security blade


    Most often seen on Skiff:
    right leg outer - jet pack adjustment tool
    right leg inner - anti-security blade

    left leg outer - survival knife
    left leg inner - sonic beam weapon

    For SE there is all kinds of idiocy (which pretty much sums up my opinion of the SE shots all together)

    -no shin tools at all.

    - the rotj skiff setup:
    right leg outer - jet pack adjustment tool
    right leg inner - anti-security blade

    left leg outer - survival knife
    left leg inner - sonic beam weapon

    -TWO anti-security blade setup:
    right leg outer - jet pack adjustment tool
    right leg inner - anti-security blade

    left leg outer - survival knife
    left leg inner - anti-security blade

    Check out the Fett reference CD, 07-ESB, Still 01, 02, 03 and 04.

    Right leg, outside pocket-Survival knife
    Right leg, inside pocket-Sonic beam weapon (notch direction changes from pic to pic)
    Left leg, inside pocket-Anti-security blade (two tubes facing up and to the inside
    Left leg, outside pocket-Rocketpack adjustment tool

    Further review of pics from the carbonite chamber show the knife and jet pack adjustment tool are reversed.

    Me too!!! I've seen original ESB pics which show them in all different configurations!!! I guess most often though, I do paterson stir stick on far right, paterson squeege on inner right, and anti security blade on inner left. I don't even bother with the Jp adjust tool since I have never seen a pic which proves Fett had that in ESB. It definately looks like there is something round in the outer left, but no difinitive pics that prove what it is. What I do swich around often though, is the way the paterson squeege is facing. most ESB pics show it in the inner right pocket, but it is facing different all the time. Really, as long as you have them in there, I don't think it matters. Its all good!!!
