    Shin Tool Arrangement

    So I've noticed this vary in original photos (especially for SE Fett), and I've also seen it differ between
    troopers in the field...

    Is there a definitive post on shin tool arrangement? And would it vary per Boba version?

    I'm an approved SE Boba Fett. My usual arrangement has been:

    Left Leg Outer: Survival Knift
    Left Leg Inner: Anti Security
    Right Leg Outer: Sonic Beam
    Right Leg Inner: Jetpack Adjustment

    I'm sure there's been a time or two where I've reversed something, especially for instances where we've had limited time to suit up.

    Just curious what the consensus is...

    There is a lot of variation, so I just chose one. I went with this picture, as far as where they sit and detail coloration. It is actually the same tool layout you mentioned, except with no jetpack adjustment tool.

    I used to just place them wherever when I went to troops (and the largest tool had a different version paintjob to it), but then earlier this year I decided to go with one specific layout, and then repainted the details on the large tool to match the above picture.

    I've always wondered about the placement as well, interested to see others two cents.

    Here is an image I compiled a while ago:

    Some of the tools are pretty constant on most of the suits, while others change their position more frequently.

    For the ROTJ SE you could use this setup:

    So where does the "jetpack adjustment tool" come into play? I mean the 4th tool that most people use... the simple rod with the cloverleaf end?
