That's pretty cool. I wonder how much? Can't be more than I'll end up spending anyway:)
I'm actually very surprised there isn't more info about it here considering the fact that, according to Facebook, "there was assistance from a number of members from TDH" in making this.
Defiantly very cool, Its got to have a high price tag
The Jango bust came out looking pretty good, minus the hefty $800 price tag
I agree, the Jango bust is nice, but the Darth Vader is way better. The level of detail on itis awesome, too bad its $1200.
I've been waiting forever for them to release more info on their lifesize HIC they premiered on comicon a year ago...
I hope this one DO becomes a reality.....
I think everyone is going to be really excited about the lifesize Fett at SDCC.
the Jango is not even a screen accurate helmet, it has a wrong ear and RF on it.......and there is no gap between the shoulder and back armor.
More information regarding the life size Fett and Han in carbonite will be released during and after SDCC.
I bet they will not be cheap. It would be awesome if SS would do more than a 4 payment plan for them, but I am sure they won't.
I'll be able to confirm it at SDCC Mullreel but I'm almost certain they just used the Boba helmet for Jango.
Thats what it looks like to me also.
The full size Fett looks ridiculous. I know it's a prototype but the armor is way too small and the mannequin looks too skinny. The jango bust could be made by most people on this drum in a few days and come out better IMO. I know that sideshow will never come close to the detail we all aspire to but ****, just visit this site and get a little more info on a product you intend to distribute for thousands of dollars.
That Jango looks horrible.
I think the sideshow armor is fine. Something just doesnt sit well with me about the overall look. Maybe the pose? Still, I think its an excellent effort and succeeds in accuracy where some fan suits miss it. Some members have done good work on it!
I think you all will be surprised come Wednesday.
I think you all are going to be shocked come Wednesday.
I want to be shocked come Wednesday.
Can't wait to see this bad boy at Comic Con. If you are going DarthMiller, take lots of pictures for us!!
I hope to be shocked. I'm the first to admit when I'm wrong,I just wish ss wouldn't release photos until the work us done. Look what they did with the boba fett bust, they release pictures with the pinched visor then produce it with the proper corrections. That's one good thing shout the company, they sometimes listen to criticism. I hope this folk size fett looks awesome although I won't be able to afford one either way.
Sideshow comic con!
Nice job guys. Alex I love the paintwork on the helmet! Waiting for better pictures of the whole display.
Nice touch with the upside down knees;
Fantastic job guys job well done!!!
That looks fantastic. Is that a lighted base?
Haha, I guess somebody can't decide which way they want the knees to go.
Keep the shots coming DarthMiller!! Sure am jealous of all the fun you guys are having.
Knees are upside down lol
Knees were upside down in the movie during the carbon freezing scene...awesome detail to add!
Can we get a parts list and people involved in this great project?
Im sure that will come eventually...I know these guys are busy with the Con but I'll txt TX Fett and see if they can divulge any info yet.
I am sure the four usual suspects were involved for sure!!!
Glad folks are liking this one! A little more detailed breakdown of the credits...
Chris Jones created the body and armor. Rich Krusell created the boots (and wore them while Brian Lewis and I molded his feet!). Brian, Mike Thomas, Patrick Louie, Melissa Dooley and myself refined the parts for production and created some of the accessories, the scalps, cape, etc. Mike Mason provided masters for the blasters. Christian Hill provided the jetpack. Tony Turner and Kitty Hebert tackled the soft goods and belts. Richard Riley was our inspiration for the base design. Alex Alva, Jason Miller and the "New Wookiee Workshop" did the final assembly and paint... and Art was a huge help in the reference department.
And of course all of this was with input from LFL and the incredible design team at Sideshow Collectibles.
Art will soon be posting up a news item with a little more info (and hopefully more pics from the floor!). This was a tremendous effort involving quite a number of people and I couldn't be more proud of the first proto which is now on display SDCC!
Thanks again to all involved!

Ha! First post... I was waiting for a good reason to post up here on TDH... guess this is as good as any! ;)
Mike Mason (aka Stormrider) FYI
having seen ya'lls work in person I know that any picture that is posted will not do that Fett justice.
Alex, you are the reason I am afraid to start painting on my Boba helmet.......after seeing your work in person I am still intimidated at the thought of starting...lol
More great pics to come on this project!!
It was a real honor to work with Tom Spina, Art Andrews, Spideyfett AKA Alex Alva, Philip Wise, Fettpride and Sideshow on this project. Thanks for letting me be apart of this!!!
The honor was mine, Jason! It was a dream team for sure...
By the way, I'm really digging Sideshow's pic from the con floor. The film grain adds a great look to this!
Will be there Sunday to see this beauty!!!...hope to see you guys there!
nevermind... my interest in this just went to zero.
Would I be correct in thinking that could be the FP V4 armour? It looks wonderful, congrats to all who contributed their hard work and talents to this project!
Great job to all people involved! Its nice to see that Sideshow worked with people who have the passion and "eyes" for Fett.
Rebelscum.com: San Diego Comic Con 2012
Lots of great pictures here. Great job everyone!
Alex I am so in love with that helmet paintjob.
I see the Sling is ALMOST right
The Rebelscum pics are great... they must've spent a little time there!
Lufo1138, no, this will not be a wearable piece (per Sideshow's license with LFL).
I can't divulge any trade secrets on Sideshow's part, but I will say their intent is to match this paint as best they can for a licensed, mass produced piece. They've worked with us very closely throughout with production as a consideration and we're providing them with a lot of material to help in that process. I have a lot of confidence in what they can do! Their team is just amazing.
The vest and neck seal were fabricated by Anthony Turner (not a TDH member but a pro tailor) and it was based on my notes/design work. We went through several revisions to really nail that down. Glad you like it!
Thanks again for the kind words!
This project was an amazing experience. One to remember for a lifetime ! HUGE thanks to Tom for bringing me aboard on this ! And of course, I would have never had the opportunity if not for Art Andrews and The Dented Helmet. This marks my own personal best, and a shining example of what so much collective talent can achieve with one common goal ! Each and every person involved worked their A$$'s off. Everyone should be proud as hell. It came out BEAUTIFUL guys !
Job well done Chris love the look of that new armor!!!
Any word on price and availability? What about the full size HIC?
No word from Sideshow on pricing or release date yet, though I'd suspect they'll announce both at the same time when they do.
Beautiful work! Any chance this will be displayed at CVI as well?
Dave Myatt took all of those amazing shots for Rebelscum.com...indeed, Great pics!
you gonna divulge any of those colors of paint alex?
Man Alex one of these days I would love to talk paint and technique with you.
Well, to be realistic it's not a finished product. The display is certainly impressive in every aspect. Sideshow is a great company but there are limitations to a mass produced piece. We haven't seen those limitations yet.
Proud to have been on a winning team. On behalf of my costumer and myself...thanks for having us, Tom.
It looks awesome. Congrats to everyone who contributed to it. You should be very proud.
So what makes this "non-wearable"? Looks like if you just add some padding in the helmet it'd pretty much be good to go, no? If it goes on a mannequin, why wouldn't it go on a person? Or am I being a bit slow here and not getting the finer points of legal speak?
For one, I think the feet are moulded solid plastic. Not that that would stop you from just getting a pair of your own boots. But it could of course be more things that are solid.
I bet everything is glued on and you'd destroy a lot of the parts by trying to get them off.
No, almost each piece of armor has pegs with very strong magnets attached to lock each piece into the body of the mannequin. Actually, the helmet is about the only piece you could somewhat wear if you wanted to.
I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but regarding wearability, it's my understanding that is something that could potentially violate certain licenses with Lucasfilm, so this was always designed as a statue, not a wearable costume in any way.
I can also confirm that the current design of the helmet does not allow wearability (in order to achieve the pose ability it requires changes that don't allow it to be wearable) and the feet will likely be solid (they are on the prototype).
Assuming the reversible knees feature (which I love!) makes it through production, the only pieces that would potentially have magnets will be the knees and the chest panel with the LED (for battery access), possibly the thumbs for blaster assembly, depending how they do the final production of it. Every other piece will be a permanent part of the statue via blocks/keys that lock each element to the body form below.
Hope that is some help!
Thanks so much for allowing me to be apart of this amazing project. Special thanks to Art, Alex, Jason, Chris, Philip and Tom. :)
I feel a Ralph McQuarrie concept fett coming! :p
Looks like I'll be selling a a kidney or two to get one of these. I hope that they aren't too expensive and if they are there will be a payment plan. I want one. Or do I want a HIC? Argh why can't I be rich.
It looks good guys, should be proud to be able to make and display such a great piece for anyone to have:thumbsup. I'm curious how much one of these bad boys will run and since its Sideshow, if the prototype will match the production quality.
Here is one of my favorite pics taken.. to me it shows the depth in which I painted all the armor pieces for this version. IMO prob the best ESB I've painted to date.
additional pics here: Rebelscum.com: San Diego Comic Con 2012
[QUOTE=Spideyfett;580637]Anytime, love that stuff too. :thumbsup
I will take you up on that one of these days real soon. I also found this selection of pics on Rebelscum.com of just the lid Rebelscum.com: San Diego Comic Con 2012. I think this shows quite well how this piece will not be wearable.
What an amazing job you did with the paint scheme...Always preferred more of the topical technique when it comes to realism and you nailed it! Would of preferred a smoother LEFT gauntlet design rather than the ridged version used but it's certainly a jewel of a statue. Any Jetpack angles? :)
I took a pic or two of the Sideshow Boba while we were there.
This one shows the colors a little better
I have a much larger version if you want me to email it to ya
And please keep in mind that everything is still in a "prototype" stage... so what you see on the inside is not at a production level just yet.
Good to see you again buddy.
The scope on the blaster has a few things wrong with it: Rear bell looks wrong shape (diameter transition too sharp), windage unit too far forward and front scope ring is the wrong way round.
Saw you posted this on the RPF too... we were already aware of all of those, thanks though :)
Man, that's an absolutely gorgeous helmet! :love
Just one minor detail point: on the right ear, there are 10 small vertical stripes. Should be 9.
Been gone a long, long time - been trooping in my Bobamaker Fett since joining the Legion after being recruited from here, but I wanted to congratulate you guys on this and I had a question...some of the wording calls it a Boba Fett Life-sized Figure. Others statue. It had me thinking and wondering if it was posable or basically the whole thing is stiff with the exception of the helmet on a ball rotation?
Honestly, a figure would make it more than worth it. It would be pretty sick.
Again, gratis to TDH!
Time for me to eat my words....lol....this looks amazing! I don't know how sideshow takes their photographs but this piece looks . I've seen it many times where people buy a piece and take their own pics and then i buy. I just need to figure out how much overtime i need to work to buy one..lol
As you can see the final product came out amazing.. and that's all that counts.:thumbsup
And as for the production version, I can assure you that there are steps being made to make the final retail/production version as close to the proto-type as possible, as we are still working with Sideshow throughout.
I'll say it again, I think everyone will be extremely surprised when the production version comes out, Sideshow definitely has raised the bar and wants to get it right...and with our help, they will. :)
Here's another great pic from a few friends at Kotaku:
Behold the Glorious Epicenter of Costly Comic-Con Collectibles
Wish i could afford one of these babies they look awesome
Here's an interview I did with Spideyfett at SDCC discussing his painting of the Fett. Sideshow Collectibles' Lifesize Boba Fett - YouTube
Great video Kristen and Alex!
LOL! Note to self- coffee IV for Alex BEFORE interview;) You're welcome Alex :)
I actually prefer it posed like this. Not bad, knee pads and all
Is this thing dead? I think it's gone from their site. I was actually looking forward to what they would come up with.
Did they have to put the knee armor upside down? In homage to the carbonite chamber scene?
It was to be accurate to that scene. But it's able to be put on both ways. It's not stuck that way.

Would be hella cool, but basically all my fett will be once I'm done collecting everything. Can't imagine them being able to turn a profit on these, unfortunately.
