    Boba ROTJ First Draft Complete

    Thanks to many of the talented TDH members, I completed my first draft ROTJ Boba last October just in time for Halloween and am just now getting around to posting pix. It took me 6 months to acquire what I consider some of the highest quality props available to the Fetting community. You're a bunch of intensely talented people (I'd list them here, but don't know if that's proper board etiquette). Through you, I'm nearing my goal of achieving a truly screen-accurate outfit.

    I know there are many things that will require additions, changes, tweaking, etc. First and foremost, I know....throw some dirt on that thing!!! Second, ignore the hoses running from the right gaunt -- they were temps.

    Next round will be to acquire a new flightsuit, flak vest and neck seal. These are a bit tight, so I plan to use them permanently on my new mannequin. Need lighting for my aluminum beacon and chest plate. Will try to get a 99centTaco ROTJ leather ammo belt someday if I can score one....and the list goes on. Are we ever done with these things?

    Anyway, here are the pix. I'd appreciate hearing your reviews. And, yes, I know there's no possible way Darth Maul and Fett could have battled. But it made for some fun at work on Halloween!

    Nice job, although its a SE Boba rather than ROTJ Boba.

    Yeah, that's exactly what I was going to say. ESB helmet with RotJ body = SE fett!

    It's a great looking suit though!!

    LIAR! you're an se fett!! you got my hopes all up for a full rotj. but it looks great man. other than the dirt, i'd say get your jet pack belt up a little higher under the flak vest.

    Sorry guys. I forget that I'm not writing to just any audience here. I preferred the markings on the ESB helmet, but liked the color of the ROTJ Fett. So, several of the guys on TDH said this was an "approved" combo.

    It is an approved "canon" combo, its just that the SE version appeared in both ANH and ROTJ Special Editions, thus being dubbed the "SE" Fett.

    Nice gear!
    I'm an SE guy myself. Love that ESB helmet with the ROTJ gauntlets and jet pack.

    oh yeah... definitely nothing wrong with that. if anything i'd say that there are more SE suits out there than ESB and RotJ combined!

    it just happens that we rotj folk are sensitive to the distinction

    it's true, there aren't all that many full rotj's out there. and then we get greif for it. our costume is just as intense as esb, and we don't kick puppies either.

    Yeah, love that JP. Same guy in Cali did the gauntlets -- recognize 'em? Sorry I had to temporarily use the seatbelt, but didn't have time to acquire a US diver's buckle in time for Oct 31. Believe me, that's going away as it's the equivalent of drawing a beard on the Mona Lisa.
