    slave1pilot's ROTJ Boba progress thread

    I found this on another forum
    I thought I'd resurrect it here where it's safe from being deleted due to time constraints
    I felt that some newer people might benefit from it

    THis is where I was on Feb 26 2007

    here's my Boba as it is progressing
    I have all the parts I need to complete it (minus chest lights)
    MS2 Helmet
    Pavespawn ammo belt
    Stateline Tack Girth (dyed by me)
    Real Army Shelterhalf cape
    RealGloves gloves
    SFP Jumpsuit modified by crazy4bobafett
    crazy4bobafett vest/neckseal , spats, pouches
    BM armour
    MLC2 Jet Pack
    Caboots boots
    Ruffkintoy gauntlets (Now Fettpride recasts) sorry Bros.
    Aluminum beacon, stabilizer,studs,darts,toe spikes, & knee darts by various peeps
    Shintools made from real Paterson parts by myself
    here's the soft parts with the MS2 helmet

    Here's some of the armour parts that are "done" or almostI have to wait until Friday to buy a new airbrush compressor to continue on with the painting
    ALMOST FORGOT> THESE ARE LEE'S COLORS

    Re: slave1pilot's ROTJ Boba progress thread

    here's some other pieces
    The keypad is metal & made by a friend of mine.
    infortunately, the Aurebesh is backwards, but that just makes it cooler
    The Knee darts weren't on there when I first posted, but I included a pic of them as they are now

    they are caboots with Russrepp spikes, the backing plates for the toe spikes were remade by me to better fit my wee feet

    Re: slave1pilot's ROTJ Boba progress thread

    I sprayed the red part of the JP
    I strayed from Lee's colors on this because I don't think the "Boxcar Red" is correct
    I think it's a little too brown, I asked Lee & he assured me that the Boxcar is the correct color
    I decided to use the "Wisconsin Central Maroon" (same as the gauntlet color) instead
    LMK what you guys think on this subject
    (The last pic is the AOSW real deal)

    Ruffkintoy gauntlets (Now Fettpride recasts) sorry Bros.

    Huh? Come again? Someone just pointed me to this dated thread ... and to my surprise I think a little clarification would be nice on that one?

    I would hate to think this is the case. They do look like my gauntlets ... but one thing that did catch my attention, is Postmortem01 (JB) in the background, and I sent hm gauntlets personally. Is there a possibility you may have the gauntlets confused ? Great suit btw !

    Thanks

    I said they were FettPride recasts because I believe that's what they are. I got them on ebay & don't remember the seller. It was a long time ago
    I don't know for sure if they are recasts, But I wanted to give an accurate list of what parts I had used when i put my costume together
    Postmortem01 is a friend of mine & yes he does have a set of your gauntlets.
    No these are not them.Nor were they recast by him
    I showed him the set i had & asked him for help in fixing them.
    He said that he thought they were recasts due to their poor quality & to just get some new ones.
    He showed me his real ones & they look the same, except mine are made of resin( I think yours were Fiberglass) & are really thin in spots & too thich in others.
    I bought a set of Ruffkintoy's gauntlets from Chuck since I had bought sets from him before (painted, assembled, & sold on ebay)
    I had every intention of using the Ruffkins, but they seemed oversized & the details a little soft ( that's 1 reason I said "sorry Bros" in my first post, the other is to you & the community for using recasts)
    So I went back to the recasts to see how bad they actually were.
    They needed a ton of work & the only parts that were salvagable were the top shells & the right bottom shell. The extra parts & greeblies were full of bubbles & warped. So I threw all of them out
    The left bottom shell is a Ruffkintoy, as is the missile & top hose connector for the right gauntlet. I think the Dental expander is too.
    The Flamethrower is a complete scratchbuild, as is the whipcord attachment. I made these myself ( kinda proud of that actually )
    I did the assembly, wiring, & painting too of course.
    Quite a long story, but I wanted to ease everyone's minds
    And thanks for the compliments & not jumping in & yelling "RECASTER ALERT!!!"

    Re: slave1pilot's ROTJ Boba progress thread

    Hey thanks for responding. It's cool man, I know JB wouldn't do anything like that. I genuinely thought maybe you just had the makers confused or something, hence asking for clarification.

    You're absolutely right, mine are always FG. Never resin. I'm sorry to here you taken with a sub-par product. it always sucks to unsuspectingly get in on a garbage deal. We've all been there. The only thing you can do at that point, is make the best of a bad situation, as it appears you did.

    Again, thanks for clarifying. If you happen to remember the e-bay seller someday, let me know would ya? And as far as your suit goes ... you did do
    a terrific job !
