    That looks fantastic. Is that a lighted base?

    Nice job guys. Alex I love the paintwork on the helmet! Waiting for better pictures of the whole display.

    Thanks Keegan..... And as fett for real said, there were a number of people involved from TDH. Tom Spina Designs headed the project. But yes thats a good ole' Spideyfett paint job, and a Darthmiller assembly.

    Thanks to everyone involved.

    Re: Sideshow Life-Size Fett

    Hey guys,

    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!

    best,
    Tom

    Re: Sideshow Life-Size Fett

    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

    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!!!

    Re: Sideshow Life-Size Fett

    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!

    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!

    I'm just curious, how are they going to mass produce these? I mean, a mass produced product won't really look like this, will it? I'm reminded of how the MR helmet project turned out compared to its first appearance at CC. Is this replica intended to be wearable? I would assume not.

    Whoever did the vest and neckseal has come much much closer than anybody ever has to getting it right. Is that done by a TDH member?

    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!

    best,
    Tom
