    Apr 1, 2008, 5:20 PM - Newbie Introduction #1

    Hey everyone, some may know me from the RPF as being a big Indy, Blade Runner fan and crazy paper prop guy, but like many people I have been a huge SW fan for my entire life. Growing up, my favorite character in the series was Fett and of course I had the vinyl costume with real thin... and totally inaccurate mask front... ha ha

    For the past year I have been pretty light on any prop projects as I have been working on my own artwork to put in our new house that we built last year. During that time I have been thinking about two projects; the first is gathering parts and building a new proton pack to replace the one I sold almost four years ago (I should never have done that); the second was deciding if I should go all the way with Fett or do a bust display of Fett. I have run the numbers, I am used to this expensive little hobby of ours, and I finally decided that I really wanted to go all of the way and do an entire Fett.

    So where do I go? TDH of course. I have been lerking here for a while, but I finally joined the other day. I am now ready to get started researching a ROTJ Fett to be the centerpiece of my collection. I hope in the process I will be able to find a way of contributing to this community. There are a lot of talented people here and I have learned a lot already just as a lerker.

    Ok, so I spent some more time looking at my copy of Chronicles last night and then I hit TDH again... just note that I am not being swayed by peer pressure BUT I have changed my mind, I think I am going to go with the ESB Fett.

    I keep reading all of these great threads with paint progressions of kits and I just decided and this may sound totally superficial, but I like the paint scheme of the ESB Fett a little better... personal preference, nothing more.

    So that is what swayed me the most. LOL

    Bryan, welcome to TDH. There are some great threads about the suit being made for Jeremy Bulloch currently. The suit is an ESB replica, so they're great for reference.
