    Dec 9, 2008, 11:39 PM - rotj or se rotj #1

    I was wondering what you guys think. What do you guys like more. My fav movie is rotj. I like the colors of the jet pack and gauntlets better then esb. I never really noticed the difference of the se boba. Do you like the original better or se? I'm hopping to start my suit early next year. Just trying to get an idea of which way to go. I'm thinking original rotj. Is the esb helmet everyone's fav? Just a thought.

    Just a reminder that no matter how many suggestions you get, in the end, it is still your choice. Choose what appeals to you more.

    987654321a is crazy, don't listen to him. We all know ESB is the only logical choice in this matter. Right guys? hahaha. I'm just playing! 987654321a is totally right, when it comes down to it, it's what YOU want What do you think looks best?

    ESB.

    as far as the se rotj is concerned, never liked it. and what's really an se rotf fett? the se shows both the esb helmet on a rotj costume in the added scenes and the correct rotj fett. to me lucas messed it up, and i wouldn't wear an se. you could even build a 3rd se rotj fett, cause lucas simply flipped the image on the correct rotj costume in one scene, where all of a sudden the rangefinder is on the wrong side, etc...

    I myself say ESB...

    But since you ask which is better. I say ROTJ, only cause the ROTJ helmet is growing on me.

    ESB costume myself. However, if you plan to wear ROTJ armour, wear the ROTJ helmet. Never cared for the SE.

    I am a purist by nature, so the SE would not even be considered. I personally prefer the ROTJ look , but each version has its PRO's. I'd say the ESB helmet paint scheme would get the nod. That "Cat scratch" is awesome. But, the ROTJ Gauntlets, JetPack and Blaster are cooler.... Im my opinion of course.

    Either way, it's your choice. Keep in mind, the vast majority of people you will meet will not have a clue that there's even a difference in versions. I've even had tons of people think my ROTJ Fett is a Jango, just b/c they don't know better....

    I'm a ROTJ-SE guy myself. Love the gauntlets and jet pack of the ROTJ costume, and the look of the ESB helmet.

    Also, I hear Saint Nasty kicks puppies.

    Purest here also. If you like ROTJ do pure ROTJ. If you actually liked the blaspheming Special Edition movies then represent. :P

    Not to mention there just arent many pure ROTJs out there

    I know that the SE isn't the favorite of some folks on here or of Star Wars fans in general. I myself don't like what Lucas did to the movies as a whole (there are some addtitions that are ok).

    BUT...I do like the look of the RotJ SE Fett because of many of the reasons already mentioned: RotJ suit, jet pack, gauntlets and let's not forget the armor. I like the RotJ armor more overall (I do like the ESB shoulders better though). And, of course, the ESB bucket is just way cooler IMO.

    That being said, if I had it to do over again (and maybe someday I will), I'd go straight up ESB. I think the purity would win out for me in the end.

    I think there is more of a ROTJ prejudice :P there are way more SE than there are ROTJ out there. :P
  21. Dec 10, 2008, 12:26 PM - Re: rotj or se rotj #21

    I have an SE, and I love it though I am now considering going ESB. Only because I think the green look of the muted ESB and the darker jumpsuit are better suited with my dark hair and hazel eyes. Plus the JB Project really opened my eyes to the differences. Love my ESB helmet so that would remain. My postion on this whole ROTJ vs. SE is that it's a given that Fett wore diffirent components based on particular mission profiles and such. Though the SE is LFL continuity flub up in the films, it's highly possibly that Fett would mix and match components.

    SE by default.

    Was clueless when I ordered most of my stuff and not in any hurry to change my MR bucket at this stage. Love the colours of ROTJ jet pack and gauntlets.
    Had both webleys, ROTJ version is way better.
