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!

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.
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!
