    Alex,

    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?

    Congrats man!

    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.
    Ha Ha! These weren't suppose to be posted!!... oh well, thanks to Dave Myatt at Rebelscum.com.
    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.

    Thanks Christian, so glad that you were included in this project, you really came through with an amazing pack. I do have additional pics of the pack from the studio, I will see if I can get permission to post them. PM Me.

    Thanks Nate, great shot of it...gotta say when I painted the Jetpack I totally thought of replicating the one you painted for Jeremy...
    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.

    Man, that's an absolutely gorgeous helmet!
    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!

    Chucky, the initial Sideshow teaser pic was taken by me, and we were all very shocked when it was released when they did, as it was just an update pic that I was required to send them. And with my horrible photography skills it was never meant to be seen as anything more than an "In Progress" pic. Trust me, if I would have known they were going to tease it, I would have taken better pictures. Ha Ha!
    As you can see the final product came out amazing.. and that's all that counts.

    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:

    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.
