    Jul 30, 2008, 11:16 PM - We need your help to create two busts for our TDH booth! #1

    While we feel the TDH table/booth at Comic Con was a great success we really want to improve and enhance the booth. One thing that ALWAYS attracts attention is when we have members in costume at the table or when members bring their props to display. However, having members bring their own props means the possibility of those pieces being damaged or even stolen. With that in mind, we would like to put together two upper body busts (as seen in the image below), one of Boba and one of Jango, to be permanent table display pieces. These pieces would be permanently affixed to the mannequins and would have portable storage boxes that would double as pedestals for the displays. While we may have to resort to purchasing pieces for these costumes, I would first like to ask you, our members for donations of parts to build these up. We need a lot of parts but since these will be armless, legless, and rockketpackless displays, it should be relatively easy to put together with your help. Below is a list of the parts we know we will need (there may need to be more). If you feel you can help, please sign up and I will contact you privately with details. Thanks for all of your support!

    Progress on these pieces will be posted here until they are complete!

    What versions of Boba for the busts? I could supply a helmet or two if needed. I could also airbrush paints if needed.

    I reallly don't like the idea of the Boba being without a Jet Pack
    Let me see what i can do to procure one & I will also offer to paint it

    if that's ok with you guys

    If we do ROTJ, I have a correct Shelterhalf that you can have for the cape

    On the Mini-Bust, yes there is a Jet Pack (jet pack)
    But not on the full-size;

    Wow... The immediate response is amazing.... but I guess thiskind of response should be expected from this community as you guys have all been so so generous in the past.

    In regard to the rocket pack, I wasn't going to include them because I wanted these pieces to be display pieces only and very portable as we would likely be shipping them from con to con. I would love to have the packs, but just don't know how we could make that work but I am totally open to your ideas and suggestions.

    I am not entirely sure which version to do. As much as I don't like it myself, the SE combo seems to be the favored variation of the suit, so perhaps that would be the best way to go.

    I have 2 white girth belts. They are made of nylon though, not mohair. I was gonna throw them up on the boards but if you guys could use them they're yours. I don't have the first clue as to how to dye the nylon, but they are at your disposal non-the-less.

    You have a very good point.
    They do tend to take up a lot of room.


    My vote is for SE (even though I'm a purist)
    Can I still do the Cape?

    Sounds good, and yes, we will still need the cape.

    I have gotten quite a few pms about this project as well as the posts here. Please be patient as I sort through them and try to figure out who can do what.

    I have 1 mannaquin torso (without head) I'd like to donate for the project. I will check about getting a replacement head for it today.
