Hello Fett brothers. I wanted to share with you the latest progress on my Boba Fett costume. Work has slowed on the Jango and I really have few things to upgrade, so last year I started my Boba costume. The ESB suit is one of my favorite but the pre-production suit with the non-dent and with the eyes or ears high on the bucket has always been my real dream. and so it begins..... I have a few other parts for this costume that I will share as things get completed, but I wanted to get the cherry finished before I started on the shake.
This Helmet is a Movie Sized Glass bucket that I purchased off of Ruffkintoys a few years ago and it was painted with ROTJ colors and had a dent...that is all gone now and it even has a new more accurate metal rangefinder stalk and a better rangefinder, the Green T-visor has been replaced with a Black and one of my good buds Titan Fett hooked me up with a real borden connector. The Helmet was stripped and sanded down to it's base and totally repainted by one of the most talented helmet painters in the world Neal Tracey..thank you Neal you are a friend and your work will be the centerpiece of my collection for the rest of my life.
here is the Old ROTJ paint job
Here are the first progress shots
and here is the completed helmet..right off the pages of the Star Wars Chronicles. The pictures do not do it justice...it looks even better in person.
