    Oct 4, 2008, 5:59 PM - ROTJ Fett Done! #1

    After almost 2 years of work and $3,700 later, my ROTJ Fett is done (well...pretty much...dam upgrades)














    Parts list:

    Helmet - Hand Shaub aluminum helmet painted by TK 7602, custom LED circuit board by mrgr8ness, Boba Maker rangefinder and hollow stalk
    Armor - Wickedbeard metal armor, painted by Wickedbeard, aluminum collar and cod blocks
    Chest display - TK 409
    Gauntlets - Wickedbeard metal gauntlets, painted by Wickedbeard
    Flak vest - Boba Maker, weathered by me
    Flight suit - Boba Maker
    Girth Belt - Centaur Mohair from TDH
    Ammo belt - 99cent Taco
    Side Pouches - Boba Maker
    Gloves - The Real Gloves
    Wookie Braids - synthetic doll hair (waiting for a set by Julie)
    Cape - army tent material from TDH
    EE-3 - Hyperfirm
    Jet Pack - MOW Jet Pack, painted by Wickedbeard, aluminum beacon and stabilizer by Serenity, real U.S. Diver's buckle (not painted yet)
    Jet pack harness - Boba Maker
    Ankle Splats - Boba Maker
    Shin tools - TDH
    Boots - CA Boots
    Toe Spikes - Boba Maker

    Now I just need to figure out how to install a servo for the rangefinder and set up a smoking exhaust system for the jet pack

    hahaha... i hadn't looked at the list yet and was going to comment that i loved the jet pack and helmet... no wonder i loved the helmet

    to this day that remains one of my favorite paintups, and i've done a bunch of them at this point.

    on the servo note, i'm pretty sure i glued the RF into place. but it's an aluminum stalk and a screw on aluminum ear cap. i would have used Goop if i did, so you'll be able to pull the glue off. it will be tough pulling, but it will go and shouldn't damage anything.

I have no doubt thats worth every penny of that 4 grand I bet you needed all those beers in the background to put up with the flack you got from your GF/Wife after she realized how much that costume was costing

    I needed all the beer in the background as well as all the Captain Morgain bottles. I tend to make shrines to things that inspire me - beer, Captain Morgan and Fett.

    It is fun to see all the hard work come together.

    That's no manny...that's me baby!!!

    Yeah...I cant get the heavy aluminum bucket to sit right. I'm waiting for a Sgt. Fang from Rogue Studios that should look better due to the weight. Besides it will be much lighter for trooping.

    I'm not a big fan of the posable mannequins. My TK's mannequin will not be posable.

    what's funny is that the aluminum helmets are big, so you'd think the neck would look stubby! that was one of the main reasons i got rid of it... i was too small for it.
