    New to the Jango side... Q?

    Hi guys,
    Since I'm almost done with my ESB Fett I was thinking Jango may be a nice project to tackle.

    I was wondering if my height would be wrong for Jango... I'm 6'1"
    and Temuera Morrison is around 5'10"

    so would that look funny?
    also would the cost of Jango be more or less than an ESB fett?
    keep in mind i would like to buy the best or at least the 2nd best parts out there.

    thx
    Arnold

    Temuera is arround 5' 7" not 10" hehehe, but that shouldn't be a problem, actually it's (The real costume) on a mannequin for the Celebrations that has the same size that the boba one, and It doesn't look bad

    Kinda pushing it on the height, but it can work if you find a tall Boba. I hang out with Bountyone, he's like 6-3.

    Cost is probably pretty close. Maybe a touch more. Seems like evrything is $300 or more. It's also getting harder to find the good stuff. If your going to do it, better jump on that boot run, if you haven't already.

    Yes, I don't have the pics here but I have found a nice "general" pic on the mannequin. I have resized it for not to post a BIG pic, so here it is:

    THx Cruzer,
    I think,

    Well I beter start saving, I do plan to make what I can myself..like the vest.

    I did see the womans gloves when I went to the States last weekend.

    I'll do some research before I tackle this suit..It did take me 10yrs to finally start and finish my ESB. so I better get a head start.
    thx again guys

    Oh and Cruzer can you point me in the right direction for Gauntlets, Knees and Westars.
    I think a some guy makes decent ones here.. lol

    Yeah, when it's put like that it's ...

    But keep in mind that's an estimated price for what's considered the best of the best. There are many ways to reduce that price such as going with a different maker of jet pack, going with resin westars instead of dropping significant cash on MRs, picking up nice deals on a helmet and/or armor in the cargo hold, and as you already mentioned by making a lot of your own items such as a vest, flightsuit, girthbelt, etc.

    If this is definitely a project you foresee yourself wanting to start in the future, I would recommend getting in on the Reinone run of boots while it lasts.

    As for gauntlet, knees, and westars: MOW may be accepting orders right now, or I should be accepting orders again by the middle/end of next month. Dark-Side has just released some very screen accurate cold cast knees with aluminum darts, and has one more spot left on a limited run. MR Westars can usually be picked up on ebay for anywhere between $450-$650, or I offer resin and Hyperfirm versions.

    Hope that helps.
