    Nov 6, 2008, 7:40 PM - boba fett out of sarlacc helmet and armor??? #1

    i was wondering if anyone has done this before,makeing Boba's armor after he got out of the sarlacc.

    i know for sure the helmet survived but the armor was pretty banged up from what i read(lots of holes) but i was thinking of starting this project(thou i still have 2 others but hey im 17 i have the time)

    if anyone has any info or input that could help,itd be greatly appreciated thanks!!

    I am afraid that don't understand the question. Are you asking if acid bleaches? Guess it depends on the type of acid. There are a lot of other things that will bleach and are less destructive...

    Well, bleach itself is a base, so... no, it's not an acid. I can't think of any acids that bleach colors out, because that's not what acids are specifically good at... I dunno. Ask your local chemist?

    Also, are you planning to just lay around on convention floors until someone dressed as Dengar comes to move you? Just kidding... but really, Fett didn't wear the armor after he got out... he had a spare set stashed away.

    look up pictures of acid damage and use that as a template for weathering effects.


    i would actually use prosthetics sewn into the soft parts, maybe a patchy vest with burn marks all over the place and raw flesh showing through...

    if it eats through armor it will eat through fabric....


    I can understand a little of bang up in the sarlacc, weather it be a violent throught cavity or whatever, but didn't the movies say "slowly digested over a thousand years?"

    i would think there would be lots of sitting in the stomach before anything too crazy would happy.

    plus, i woudln't think think his jet pack would stop working or flamethrower would kick out, not for a lengthy time at least.

    look at how much beating jango took in episode 2, and his stuff still worked.

    although I thought i read once the reason his head got slided off was because his jet pack wouldn't take off.


    i dunno.

    this could be a cool project either way

    First, I would use a plastic armor rather than fiber glass and use a heat gun or similar to warp the armor a little or maybe heat up some metal and actually melt a few oddly shaped holes in it. For painting I would use slightly lighter/washed out looking colors than those recommended for ROTJ, and I would also maybe mix types of paints to get the horrible crackled look that nobody normally wants to see and then clear coat it. You'll definately want to go with some prostetics, maybe even a full charred hand or at least a couple of fingers. You'll also probably want to replicate the damaged jet pack.

    I think this could be a very cool project if it's done right. Good luck!

    thanks guys im definatly panning this out,ill try and hit up a costume shop shop for some of these things.

    i agrre with you Combatbaby there will definatly be some burning of the fabric,the book said he could feel sand against his bloody back so something got through.

    awsome idea Never_Ending_fett, i originally planed on using trashcan armor and im probably still gonna go that route but im definatly gonna take those painting tips of yours thanks a lot!!!!

    as i mentioned earlier Fett could feel that sand on his back,so could that mean he lost the jet pack?

    this is an extract from tales of the bounty hunters when dengar found boba fett near the sarlaac pit (author dave wolverton
    'on the edge of the pit was a dead man, naked, his flesh burned and bruised, as if he'd been placed alive in acid. dengar turned the corpse over with a foot, to have a look at it's face.
    the man was burned, covered with boils. dengar had never seen the pitiful fellow before.
    "help" the man whispered. dengar was astonished to find him alive.'

    sounds pretty hard to pull off

    Sounds easy in the helmet and amour part since Dengar found him naked.

    If I remember right, when I was a kid, there was actually a killer Star Wars comic and I believe Han found him after the Sarlaac spit him up and Boba had abnesia. I would really like to get ahold of that issue again.

    There were two books I remember covering that event when Dengar rescued him. One book he still was wearing his helmet and tattered clothes, the other was the naked one mentioned.

    I have the reprint issue. They came with the Boba/Droid figure 2 pack that came out not too long ago.

    I have a boba and IG-88 two pack, I think it's that one, that says Boba was "scavenged" by the jawas. They thought he was a droid because of his armor.

    wookiepedia actually says boba fett fell into the sarlaac pit and he escaped because his jet pack exploded, then he was found by dengar
    then later on he fell into the sarlaac yet again (he must have liked it in there)
    when he escaped again han solo found him
