    Nov 16, 2014, 8:18 PM - Boba converted kids lid #1

    Hey guys, I converted one of my kid Jango lids into a Boba and just wanted to share the process I used for any other dads that may be doing this down the road. I now just need to build the scaled rf stalk and topper to match, and figure out what to do for the Borden on the cheek. Please let me know if I've missed anything.
    Thanks,
    Cruzer

    The rectangular hole in the left upper cheek is missing, or at least I don't see it.

    By the way, that is a great looking helmet!

    I'm far from being dad of the year, trust me. This is actually for a friend's son. I'll post a few pics once I've put some paint on it, but here's a size comparison pic next to a BKBT for now.

    zxwing, glad I could help. I already know your son's suit will look awesome with you working on it!

    Base colors are on. I'm one of the "airbrush challenged", so I'm using AFFO$'s recommended colors...

    Thanks. I couldn't find the recommended color locally for the ear, so I improvised and used a lighter tan misted with gold and then lightly abraised with steel wool. It looks more solid gold in the pic. It's not perfect but it'll work for this 6 year old kid who will also be getting his first Boba 3.75" and 18" figures this Christmas. Unfortunately with my very limited painting skills this late in the game, I'm going for a quick paint job that's somewhere in between an MR and Hasbro.

    I usually ask $150 shipped for the gel-coated fiberglass version when I can find the time to make them. And that would be with a movable cold cast rf that has a 1/8" steel armature for durability. A cold cast fiberglass version would be $50 more. The only problem is that life and the adult sized armor keeps me busy, so I typically don't make them unless I have some extra time on my hands.
