    ESB v ROTJ

    Ok, so if possible I want to start work on a ESB Boba. I have noted these following differences:

    Jet pack colour
    Gauntlets, colour (and style?)
    Jump suit and ammo pouch colour
    Boot spats
    Girth belt colour
    Helmet (wave to top of visor and paint scheme/kill stripes)
    Cape

    So where can I get a decent set of reference photos?
    How much different are the gauntlets and can I convert ROTJ to ESB easily?
    Are there any other glaringly obvious differences between the two?
    Is there any difference between ESB and ROTJ armour?

    Thanks Rob.

    The Dented Helmet (TDH) splash page features a link to reference CDs with pics, that's your best resource.

    Everything is different from ESB to ROTJ. Not one costume part can be used on both.

    Hmm. . . maybe it's case sensitive. Did you try all lowercase?

    Re: ESB v ROTJ

    I am coming to the conclusion that the ROTJ would be far easier and cheaper to achieve, due to the amount of reference material and the items I have seen for sale. For what I am intending to use the costume for either one will work well as long as the quality and detail are well done.

    I am about to open my wallet and don't want to buy half of the wrong stuff, so thanks guys your help has been very usefull.

    Rob.
