    Your first Fett photo

    I know it's been done before, but lets start a fresh one. Now that we could load up images for free.

    Post a picture of your very first Fett or any other Star Wars costume. The way it looked like then, and how it looks now.

    I'll go first.


    My first Fett was Jango Fett 2001 and that way it looks now 2010.

    Re: Your first Fett photo

    I always LOVE these threads!



    Here's my original scratch built version from 2002 vs. my current version (more or less).

    The 2002 pic was the first time I wore that suit in public at Celebration 2 in Indy! I wouldn't be caught dead wearing it now! HAHAHA

    Re: Your first Fett photo

    After seeing these "1st attempts", i'm not sure I could actually post my first version since it's SO terrible. In my defense, it was before i'd even heard of TDH. Although, it WOULD be the perfect advertisement for joining TDH now that I think about it.....

    I've changed the suit slightly since then, but not worth another pic. I only wore it once in 2009, it mostly stayed on the mannequin.

    C'mon take a risk! Let's see!

    I admit my first was not very good... my second improved enough to get 501st status, but is not as good as some other guys on here... hopefully my 2010 version will be better than last year!

    Absolute 1st troop in April 2006:


    Here is a larger shot in July 2006:


    October 2007 after about 8 upgrades:


    I've had nearly the same Boba Fett since with the exception of a couple additions and overhauls.

    Jamgo in August 2006:


    After 3 major upgrades, January 2008:


    I've had this one plus the arena jetpack and some minor upgrades and LOTS of overhauls!

    Lucky,

    Thanks for postin those up. As embarassed as you may be of that first version, you should double that in regards to how proud you are of your current Fett. Besides, I'd say, for scratch build, with no knowledge of TDH/RPF, that first version is pretty darn good.

    I think the weight you put on between the first 2 and the current really makes a difference. You used to be WAY too skinny for this. And so stiff!

    I started back about Nov of 05' as a Halloween project for 2006, and the addiction quickly spread to other costumes.

    Re: Your first Fett photo

    I think this thread pretty good so far...

    It's fun to see what we thought Fett looked like when we started this hobby... and after finding TDH!.

    This thread should also serve as an example to newer members of this community. There's no way some one could get complicated suits like these done perfectlly the first time around. It takes time, patience, an eye for detail... and MONEY!

    I have a cool trivia for you guys. I have some parts from 2001 that I still have in 2010. Can you figure out what it is?
