  1. Sep 29, 2006, 1:35 AM - GBH's JANGO VERSION .75 #1

    Ok Peep's here it is, I'm calling it my Jango Version .75! I started it back in March and worked like a dog to get it done in time along with my Hellboy for DC, but was unable to finish my gauntlets and Arena jet pack! Although as luck would have it, the very kind and gracious Mirax was able to borrow me her gear since she was StarShip Troopin' it for most of DC! This allowed me not only to enjoy the fruits of my labor up to that point, but also the opportunity to have Brak's once again do some great photography! So that's why I can't offically label it a fully finished 1.0 Version, but would still like to give a "Big THX" to those that helped me bring it together up to this point! So since I've finally got a little break in the action, I thought I'd have some fun and whip-up some trading cards, minus the bubble gum, so here it goes from Head 2 Toes...


    BKBT: For The All important Bucket! I can't say how much I love this thing, it was a really nice kit and I tried my best to do it justice!

    Hyperdyne: For his Blue Range Finder lights and trick remote control servo set-up that was so easy to install, a chimp could do it!!! It really adds an extra element of fun while trooping and the crowd @ DC loved it!

    Armor: This has got to be one of the most hodge podge sets of armor ever, but in the end, I'm pretty pleased with the way it came together!

    Collar and Right Chest Piece: Some Ebay Seller
    Sholders, Left Chest, Diamond, Ab and Cod: Me
    Back Plate, Thighs, Knees, Shins, Feet: I also purchased these off ebay and I believe are also from BKBT, but not entirely shure!

    Good Ole' Mom : Flak Vest & Flight Suit

    Ammo Belt: Take a guess, you only get one and if you get it wrong, you have to turn in your badge @ the front desk! (answer:SEEKER)

    Cruzer: Holster Rig: What a guy, a real professional!!!8)

    Master Replicas: Blasters, but a special thanks to the shmuck who sold them off Ebay for 300 Shipped! Ohhhhhhh-K!

    Girth Belt: Me, but again, gotta give props to Cruzer for his excellent GB Tutorial, it doesn't get any easier than that!

    Reinone: Boots...The One, The Only!!!8)

    Dark Side: Exclusive High Quality Aluminum Pieces and his craftmanship is second to none!

    So I quess that's pretty much it in a nut shell and I hope everyone digs it! Please speak up if I left anyone out and also keep your eyes open for the fully completed 1.0 version!

    THX

    Wow, that looks great!

    Did you use rub-n-buff on the helmet?
  8. Sep 29, 2006, 8:57 AM - Re: GBH's JANGO VERSION .75 #8

    Yup, it's all just R-n-B! That product delivers a great effect, but by the time I was on the last pieces, I've sworn to never use it ever again! Arrrgh!, it can be really teadous and tempermental! It absolutley delivers the desired effect though, Sooooooo?

    But hey guys, thank you much for the compliments, having the acknowledgement and respect of your peers means alot!

    GBH, remember a Death Star Gunner approached ya Sunday afternoon @ D*C? That was me ... because that costume was jaw dropping! Ya done an absolutely amazing job with that one right there. Question for ya (and I know it may sound dumb) : where did you get the blue LEDs for the bucket. I saw the Hyperdyne rig, but it only had the red LEDs. Did I miss something?

    great Job, where did you get those backgrounds?
  18. Sep 29, 2006, 5:36 PM - Re: GBH's JANGO VERSION .75 #18

    THX guys for the complimetns! I appreciate it!

    Hey Kivas, as far as the direct backdrop behind me, Brak's was using a black sweep for the photo shoots with I believe a silvery gel. As Far as the boarder and support graphics, I'm a graphic designer, so last night I finally had a couple of hours of free time, so I just had some fun and just winged it!8)

    Wow... you definantly did everything right the first time, unlike how I have done with many things, starting cheap then upgrading! Perfect model for people to look at when starting their serious Jango. Kudos!

    Where did you get those pictures from? Man I know that it was only July, but it already seems like a lifetime ago , wierd!

    Spidey, after you starting talking about using mini Earth Magnets to hold the earcap on and having a removable visor, I just had to try it, now that's the only was I'd set up any helmet in the future, along with a working range finder and LED'S of course!

    THX Again for the kind words my friend!

    Absolutely amazing ... and my memory does serve correctly ... those LEDs are bright! I remember at D*C when you lowered the RF, I had to squint as they appeared bright even through my Gunner visor!!!!

    Hey GBH, why not get your featured on 501st.com? You've got some amazing pictures to chose from!
