    Mar 22, 2007, 9:53 PM - Fongtrooper's Jango v.1 #1

    Hi all,

    I've been a long time lurker here on the TDH because I've been watching and slowly gathering together my armor. Here's my version 1 completed for St. Patrick's day parade here in Boston, MA.

    -Armor is from wickedbeard and everything is held together by very strong rare-earth magnets. Didn't come off at all during a 3 mile parade.

    -Flightsuit and vest are from Bobamaker

    -Jet Pack is a custom made one I randomly got from ebay.

    -Westar Blasters are Master Replicas!

    -Holster and belt are from someone selling their starfortress stuff on ebay (trust me, I'm upgrading these!)

    -Shoes are the Kenneth coles!

    -Helmet and gauntlets are custom made and i don't know who made these.

    -gloves are Jangouri's!

    My jango has been a two year project that has finally been done in v.1. Will be upgrading of course! Enjoy the pics!





    At the parade start, wishing I had coffee


    Looking for adoring fans


    Found them!


    With jentress and 7602

    Heyyy, nice to see my gloves there, they look pretty well

    Nice costume man It's 100 times better than my v.1.0!

    I like the Flak Vest, is it leather? Or is it some kinda fabric? How much did it cost to u cuz it looks pretty nice!!

    Good Work

    Hi Jangouri!

    Good to see you on! I love the gloves! They have a nice tight fit and look screen accurate! Still, I remember using your photos as a reference for my own Jango Fett so consider kudos to you for your wonderful Jango v.1.

    The Flak Vest is real leather, not the fake stuff. Bobamaker really did a good job on this one for me but let's say you could make two pleather ones for my one!

    Thank you for the compliments all, and I hope to continually upgrade!

    Looks like a JD helmet???? Gauntlets look good but off in a couple places maybe MoW??? I like the way your girthbelt looks and your holsters look good but maybe need to be adjusted a little.

    Definately need to get the silver on your boots though!

    Take this as constructive criticism not down talking!

    Your suit looks really good and wwwaaaayyy better then my V1!!!

    Thanks for the input Chris. I have a to-do list for my jango already!
    1. Put silver trim on the shoes
    2. Re-adjust my cod piece
    3. Re-adjust my holsters.
    4. More velcro for my knees (keep slipping down)
    5. adjust my jet pack (hangs too low)
    6. repad my gauntlets

    Thank you all for your hints. At least now when people ask me who made my armor, I can actually give them an answer!
