    Whoo! This was a TON of work. TONS of improvements. If anyone's interested, I'm selling off a few kits to make up the molding costs.

    Impervium@aol.com

    and don't forget the classic version


    Polyglass hollow bodies, resin cast details. THese are really pro-looking.

    I am eventually going to get both, but I definately am leaning towards the stubby. Just something different. But, I like the way both look, the stubby one just looks more Jango, in my opinion.

    I personally am going with the stubby.

    Not because I like it better or because
    I feel it is more Jango, but simply because
    I think there are fewer stubby Jangos than
    the other.

    Now if I only new of an inexpensive way to make it!!!

    Any ideas?

    What do others plan to do?

    I'm going for the classic for 2 reasons. I've always liked it ever since I was about 10 years old. And 2, cuz I think that was Jango's 1st choice of a better pack. I mean, he wore it till it got busted THEN moved to his "back up" pack, the stubby. That goes with anything. You would use your best baseball bat until you broke it and then move up to the lesser one. Ok, dumb analogy, but you know what I mean... Plus, I think the stubby one looks small and weak. I would only get the stubby one if I've made a Bobba Fett costume with the classic pack, but I didn't. This will be my 1st costume.

    I plan on going with the arena version because 1. It matvhes and 2. it's smaller, lighter and you wont have to be paranoid about smacking that big rocket against a door enterance.

    Looks like its gonna be stubby for me as well. Most likely I'll use some sintra and vacu-forming. Probably fiberglass for the back, since the strengh/weight ratio is the best.

    Maybe a balsa frame for that FG to lay on first. I think the stubby seems a bit easier since it's less detailed. Will probably come out cheaper too IMHO.

    Stubby here! Seems smaller, which is important for me. I will probably be trying my hand at scratch building it.

    Umm, the one I've picked up is just as heavy as the classicpack. Just thought you'd like to know

    Anyway, I like the Stubby pack better but I have the classic pack simply because that's the only one that was avalible at the time I started my costume

    stubby McStubbington...it is more jango-ey if there is such a term. But I do like the fact that there is a Missile on the other one , you know. Ultimately, both for me as well.

    Stubby!! I think it looks more like Jango than the classic. Plus the first JP I made was a classic and it got damaged beyond repair, so after two more attemts at a classic, I think I'll try a stubby next. I'm ready for a new challenge!

    darksidedesign - I could make it for 35 bucks! It would weigh about 3 pounds. Go to http://www.azeem2000.com

    I like the Stubby for Jango. Definately.

    I think I am going with the stubby. It looks compact yet powerful to me.

    I am going with TK 9120 on this one I can switch back and forth and be more accurate than if I throw the stubby on Boba's back.

    Stubby for Jango, just so that I will have two. Classic for Boba and the stubby for Jango.

    Stubby for Jango. I was going to do an ESB JP for Boba, but if I did the ROTJ Boba JP, I could use it with Jango, couldn't I?

    Hmmmm....

    LisaFett, how much did it cost you to build your jet pack? Do you have more detailed instructions anywhere?

    It cost about $35. The only instructions I've got are on my website. The site's in the middle of getting revamped, but both my father and I have ended up in the hospital during the past month, so I've been a little busy. I'll have the tutorials back up soon, with a lot more pictures. Plus, I'm going to trace the pattern out and copy them off, due to popular demand.

    Well my brother is going to go with the stubby jet pack mainly because I'm doing the classic for my boba fett. I also think it looks cooler for jango.

    Okay, jet pack tutorial is available. It's 5 pages long, so email me if you want to be a Beta for it. The patterns are traced, but I've got to see about copying them. stubbzilla@yahoo.com

    Well, as far as which do I like better overall, I love the big rocket. But for a Jango costume, to set apart from all the Bobas you almost have to go with the Stubmeister. I'm hoping my Jango partner will go Stubby...so we'll have me in my Boba and him in his Stubby Jango.

    I'm still in the planning mode of my costume (trying to get the funds together actually) but I'm planning to do a stubby, if it doesn't work out, I'll just switch (I've got a friend with a really great Boba costume and jet pack that I can remodel)

    As one of the Beta Testers for LisaFett's jet pack patterns, I am probably
    going to try and modify her initial design and go with the stubby. It seems
    that the base design for each is the same, so it should be just a matter of
    throwing on some cones and thrusters under the tanks.

    Easier said than done, I'm sure.

    Next year is my Boba costume. I'm going to wait to do the classic then.
