I'll definitely be trying that on.
My wife already got the hint on her facebook..
unfortunatley I gues it will only stay at that.
I wonder will they be doing the full rig-out? this company are getting better all the time.
From what I recall David telling me awhile back, I believe it's just Boba and Vader jackets. I could be wrong however.
A "shiny" Boba....I dunno
if I had a real bike I would have to have, but I only have a farm bike, mmmmmmmmmmm bugger!
I think Jango's colors would work perfectly for one of these jackets.
They have plans for a jango too:D
Oh, I want to see the Vader one :D
Hey everyone! Been a while...but I have a pretty cool update. :)
BOBA FETT: Empire Strikes Back
Leather Motorcycle Jacket - New Concept.
Based on our Fett Jacket prototype shown at SW Celebration...now you can see how all your input and constructive criticisms have 'where possible' been taken into consideration and incorporated into this final concept.
While still pending Licensor approval, here's a quick sneak peak of how it's evolved......and thanking you all yet again for the feedback received.
It looks good, but is the wrong armor. This setup is known as one of the promotional suits and most of the parts are from the Pre-Pro #2 except the Pre-Pro #1 left chest plate. The ESB setup looks like this:
Just wanted to be shure that you guys will use the correct armor.
You're right, but that image is the concept...we're now working on it, but...because it's not a 'costume' it's never going to 'be' the costume in that respect however your observations are correct and certainly noted. It's not an easy design as it is, but we're certainly doing our best. Thanks for the feedback bud! :thumbsup
Man, I got a good close look at the proto jacket down at C VI. . . what a change!
Nice work, David. :thumbsup
And of course all the hard and good work might be null if the licensor will want to go on a more 'clean' route.
OMHO if your going to do it do it RIGHT. Dont claim it to be a replica maker, call it ESB and do it half way...like rafal showed you, the armor is wrong. Do yourself a favor and get it right before calling it done. You wouldnt release a dark Knight Batman jacket with the val kilmer batman look to it would you?
and the one posted by 'DAVIDYR1'...
it's a huge difference. And I know that the second image is a mock up of the ESB Promo suit from the Blu-Ray Extra:
but if they will use that armor setup with the proper paintjob, I think this will be a great replica motorcycle suit.
But dont label it an ESB replica if its not...thats just asking for flamming...just calling it like it is. Its a nice Boba Fett jacket sure but its no replica of an ESB suit.
Time for a much needed update. :)
The Boba Fett Jacket features 2 front torso zippers.
One for the 'vest' design, and the second hidden underneath...from the collar to the waist, thus creating the illusion of 2 separate pieces.
And here's a look at the back details.
Sneak Peak at the front....
It's been totally redesigned from the ground up....and yes it does feature a real time functioning Iphone pouch on the left forearm.:thumbsup
It'll be in our booth on display at next weekends Wondercon in Anaheim CA.:fettesb
Hope to see you all there.
Looks great David! Now...i could be wrong however, i really dont think hes going for 501st approval here boys;)
very awesome........the detail is superb.
So, this setup will be still labeled as 'BOBA FETT - Empire Strikes Back'? I ask this because (most of us already know) this 'new' jacket try to replicate with some success the ROTJ armor scheme using the Pre-Pro/Promo/ESB soft part colors. For accuracy's sake, you can use my new stencils to replicate the ROTJ (Boba Fett ROTJ Armor Stencils) or ESB (Boba Fett ESB Armor Stencils) color schemes; if not, there are plenty of awesome images in the TDH Gallery. You did great job with all the other motorcycle suits, and it would be again (and with this 'again' I'm referring to other's who tried to replicate the Boba Fett suit, but failed to deliver a believable product) sad to not do the same with the Boba Fett jacket. I just hope that this is not the final version...
Very cool jacket. Need a bike to go with it. :)
I agree with Verbal....I think Jango's colors would be AWESOME for UD to do!!! This Boba is sweet as HELL though!!!
