JB Project/ Screen version vs. AOSW or nonscreen version.

  1. #1

    JB Project/ Screen version vs. AOSW or nonscreen version.

    Hi all,

    Since there has been some debate on some of the other JB Project threads about weather or not we should do "PURE ESB" (screen version) or "Interpreted Version" or ASOW version....I thought it would be best to start a thread to open it up to all members to voice their opionions...as there is still time to change a few things...relatively speaking of coarse.

    NOTE: The main reason for this thread is to defer the debate portion of the Items being made or painted on those threads. Mainly because those threads (with the help of the adminstration) will be compiled and indexed in book format to be given to Jeremy. So he can see for himself the hard work done by ALL our members involved.

    SO, if there are thoughts or concerns about the direction of the VERSION we are doing....here is your chance to voice them... NO ARGUING PLEASE...be nice.

    First up...the Helmet....What version would everyone prefer.?? PURE ESB or AOSW?? (YES, it is now up for a real vote....and the majority will win...and I will make and correct changes on the helmet.)

    Alex, we have talked. You are in contact with JB on a weekly basis. I also know he is checking the threads. If he likes what you are doing, keep doing it Now, because I happen to be putting an SE Fett together, naturally I would love to see some AOSW traits. I would maybe not do the crack/repair, and probably not the blue marker. The black marks I am kind of on the fence on

    I agree totally, and I firmly believe it should rest with whomever is painting each particular item, Alex you do great work please continue as you are, if in the end you decide to offer it up to a vote then I will come back and vote accordingly, but please don't let anything deter you.

    I genererly like things more beaut up and weathered. So I go with the AOSW.

    Not unless the movies come out in Blu-ray soon in which we could expect the helmet closy, then there's no reason for thet movie look.

    I think the main population only see a really cool Boba on screen that's been in to many fights as his armor shows.

    No matter what Alex, the helmet and suit will be fantastic.

    My personal opinion is to paint it as close to screen ESB as possible. The only reasons are 1. That would be what the suit looked like when Mr. Bulloch wore it in ESB, and 2. because ESB on screen was the first time I ever saw the Boba Fett suit, which was before many of the "mis-handling" damage existed.

    Call me sentimental.

    Again, you'll do an outstanding job no matter what is chosen! :thumbup

    I love the way the helmet is looking. AOSW for me. Artistically it looks better.

    Thats cool!!!!!

    Edit: After reading the other helmet thread, I gotta change my view & go with AOSW. You guys have put so much work into this, and JB will probably be super excited about either version (if he even notices). Since you have already started with AOSW, I say stick to that. Just my 2 cents.

    I say you all have put in so much time and effort. Keep working like you are working.

    To be honest this a gift that is coming from the heart of TDH. Every artist that is involved is exactly that an artist.

    Personally Alex its up to you man. You are the one investing the time and the resources. I think you need to decide.

    The helmet is super hot already bro!

    Re: JB Project/ Screen version vs. AOSW or nonscreen version.

    I love watching the progress on all the parts so far. I understand that everybody who's directly involved with the painting or fabrication of parts has emotional investment and personal preference regarding how things should be done. I'm glad that this thread exists as a separate discussion.

    While I absolutely prefer the AoSW helmet appearance over the screen used condition, my vote here would be to do a strictly faithful rendition of the ESB version. I'd like to see the entire costume replicate the condition it was in when it originally left the prop department, and when JB first tried it on, not after it's been handled by a million people, and without much, if any, artistic license.

    That said, I don't have a strong opinion about it, since all of the craftsmanship has been so great so far. The net effect of the project is that it will seem enough like it's been in a time capsule that a couple of extra scratches probably won't matter.

    Re: JB Project/ Screen version vs. AOSW or nonscreen version.

    I just don't understand this Alex. It's like my input was a waste of time. I spent time out of my day to explain in great detail to the member that started all this, that there is no such thing as "Pure ESB" or any other version for that matter, people agree, yourself included, seemingly gets settled, then you start a new thread about opening it up for more debate?

    Not wasting my time anymore. In case anyone overlooked it because they saw 'ol FP being a long winded blow hard again, my opinion in the matter is ...

    HERE

    There is no "Pure ESB", there can be no "Faithfull Representation" of ESB.
    All of this over one or two scratches ? And "one member" who tried rattling the cage ? Wow. This is exactly what he wanted.

    I think the AOSW exhibit helmet is by far the more interesting in terms of additional damage compiled over the years, more challenging to paint and in my opinion looks right on top of the exhibit suit which is also battered to a degree. However, would that helmet look out of place on the rest of the ESB screen accurate suit which hasn't gone through that process? The helmet is a component of the suit and should reflect the condition of the entire costume to work at its best...

    Re: JB Project/ Screen version vs. AOSW or nonscreen version.

    For the helmet I like the AOSW version MINUS the blue marker and helmet crack. Reason being is all of the reference I've stared at over the years when painting my own bucket. The crack isn't my cup of tea and the blue marker, .....well it's just ugly.

    Bottom line is the ESB costume lacks so much high-res. reference that artists interpretation has to be taken into consideration. I do think you guys have pulled together one of the finest ESB costumes I've ever seen and the helmet paintjob is just nuts

    I would lean towards pure ESB. Since that is the costume he wore that would be the one I would think that he would want.

    That's not why I did it really....trust me, it takes more than a few lame comments to sway me.....

    Besides..I wanted to do something like this anyway...mainly to get the entire community involved in someway, since we couldn't include everyone in the project....

    POLL is up!!

    Re: JB Project/ Screen version vs. AOSW or nonscreen version.

    I myself will paint my helmet as seen in the movie.. at least i'll try,
    with that said.
    i think it doesn't really matter, It is one butt kicking paint-job.
    if it ain't broke don't fix it. the extra damage(AOSW) is starting to grow on me.

    The Movie accurate paint job seems to be an easier route to go... less detail.
    but thats just me....
