    Aug 25, 2009, 6:20 PM - Supreme Fett Costume #1

    I know this has been discussed somewhat before, but has anyone actually seen one of these costumes yet? They're supposed to be ready by the end of Sept.

    The helmet looks to be an MR, used for the promo pic, which would seem to be false advertising if that's the case. Everything looks pretty so-so, but hey, check out the jetpack. Pic is really small, but I'd love to know what the quality is going to be like on that.

    So has anyone seen one of these in person at a trade show or anything yet?

    For THAT price, I would give the costume as a whole a D-. Start getting your parts from the boards here.....

    if i remember right it doesn't come with boots at all. The feet are photoshopped in in the pic.

    Oh, I don't need to "start getting" parts. Apart from getting a couple of upgrades, my Fett is nearly done.

    I'm just mostly interested in how their product is for academic reasons.

    It's actually very interesting to me that the overall costume looks so **** ******, but then they have this fairly decent jetpack on it--but then again, it's hard to say from the size of the inset picture.

    I love this topic b/c
    a) it keeps coming up
    b) noone has any idea what the final product will look like b/c the picture is so manipulated
    c) If they use the same quality control on the product they did on this picture it will fail horrible (seriously if the kissy faced gauntlet popped pic is the best can you imagine what the unused pics looked like?)

    Here it is! I know everyone is curious to see this screen accurate gem... They say a picture is worth a thousand words... Here is 10,000... If you want to see more pics of the rest of the outfit I'll post em. I thought these summed up the quality quite well. enjoy.

    Wow! It looks like somebody fingerpainted the helmet damage. Love the sunflower over the dent.

    To be fair, the shin tools look OK.

    The Jetpack isn't that bad. The ammo belt looks terrible. Hose coming out of the missile is good fun....

    the jetpack could be a lot worse. what are it's dimensions? and yes, i'd love to see as much of the costume as possible. maybe even a few shots with it on just to what it looks like on an un-photoshopped human being.

    For $900 I can't believe they don't give you a leather belt.

    JP is workable with some heavy mods. The helmet looks like they hired Kindergartners to finger paint on the damage. Shin tools look workable (not good, but usable.), and that gauntlet looks like an epic failure also.

    For that price you can put together a nice kit on your own.

    Why go through the trouble of putting the details into the ears when the rest of the helmet ... .... uhh....NT said it best....looks like it's been finger painted...(not that the ears are detailed well...just that they are detailed)

    Why make the bottom of the shin tools when the gauntlets look like....hmmmm.....uhhhh...the way they do.

    The bantha skull isn't even on the shoulder bell straight...

    The JP does look alright...is it undersized? It looks like it could be from the pics but without scale refence it's hard to tell.

    Thanks for posting these up...get some more taken!

    Very interesting, I've been curious as to how the real one would look.

    Definitely post up the rest of the gear!

    I'm glad that supreme fett looks so bad. I was a little irritated that now someone can just buy a nice turnkey Fett for so cheap (when I thought it was going to be $600) and not have to do anything to it. Having it look so poor settled my fury. That said, I'd probably pick one up if I could find one cheap and make a kid's costume out of it. It'd be a crime to make a kid wear that belt. The belt would have to go.

    Ok so here are some more shots. These were taken with an iphone, so the pic quality isn't the best in all the shots. It actually makes some of the parts look better! Believe me, as bad as these look in photographs they look even worse in person.

    Here is some more detailed shots of the jetpack and a side by side with an unpainted MOW pack.

    Inside the bucket and next to a MR SE.

    More to come...

    And here is the Gauntlets...

    Notice the attention to detail on the keypad... Absolutely breathtaking!

    And the right gaunt fit me about as well as it did the model in the press release photo.

    And some side by side for scale.

    More to come...

    And last but not least... The rest of the armor.

    They used rivets in the back armor to attach the jetpack. It fell off as soon as I pulled it from the box.

    Disappointed is not the word I would use. Just use your imagination and I'm sure that you can come up with some creative thoughts to describe the Supreme Bobo Fett, now available for birthdays and parties.

    Enjoy,

    Wow...Iīve seen both the Vader and TK in real life and thatīs a sad sight in itself. I hope I donīt have to encounter this thing in real life, itīd probably just ruin my day. Hehe.

    Itīs just a sad thing to ask for peoples money for this. The least they could do is pay someone something like $1000 to take these off their hands and disintegrate it.

    I take back what I said about the jetpack...yikes. It's sad, I don't think you can even compare the st and vader to this garbage. And even they aren't anything to be proud of in the least bit.
