    apart from the difference in weathering and colour are these parts actually the same,was thinking of getting the boba parts but having them made with the dents filled in and painted in the jango colours

    The back armor is mostly the same on both characters, but the knee pads are more or less different: the Jango knees are flatter and don't have those sharp darts.

    If you don't want to be accurate, then you can use any variant.

    Boba and Jango's knee and back armor are totally different. Cruzer makes great back armor if you are looking for some.

    Darkside/Fab is in Italy and he will treat you right.

    Also second on the Cruzer backplate, probably the best out there.

    Sadly any of that armor is not mine (if that's what you thought). These are from the exibition images found in the Gallery.

    I highly recommend both Cruzer and Dark-side....great products, accurate to the character and a pleasure to work with. I have stuff from both these guys.
