As some know I have been working on an Open Seasons Jango Fett. I just about have the bucket done and I wanted to see what you all thought.
OOooooooooo the almighty BKBT rules them all.
Forgive my ignorance - what's Open Seasons Jango?
OHHH! Gotcha! Thanks!
Looks great! I like that color scheme.
Love the weathering on the silver parts .... 'real' looking.
Hm... if the rest of it turns out as well as the helmet did, you might be able to get into the 501st with it. Be closer to a custom than anyone else in there (except Ray, if he goes for it. =])
that is bad *** nah the 501st wont let comic book characters in i tried to join with a kir kanos costume and they rejected me they want people that the average joe will recognize. but they are debating letting custom mandos and clones join. who knows when that will happen
Clones are accectable in the 501st.
And from what I understand:
The Legion has the rule of three - meaning there has to be three sources of that character before it even consider to be approved. For example it should be in a comic, shown as an action figure and on a video game.
Make sense? Don't quote me on that. The best bet is to always ask the Legion Membership Officer (LMO), Thomas Spanos (who by the way only has EU Characters).
Thomas' 501st profile:
Very nice helmet! You did a really good job
Thank you for the nice words everyone.
As far as getting it 501st approved I am going to try. I have talked to Thomas a few times about it, and have gotten some favoriable comments. So when I get it done I will have to hit him up again and see what can be done. Hopefully I wont have to make any major changes.
If the 501st did let EU characters "in" their might be a problem at public charity events of the uninformed going a round wondering "ok now which movie are you from" and the 'Tumer having to constently repaeting themselves....just a thought
I personally think it would open the options of picking a character in joining a organzation that does good deeds but that is a rant for another thread
Did you build the bucket from scratch or buy one? If you bought one- who from?
That's a great lookin' bucket though.
And as for the 501st, I'm pretty sure they don't except Mandalorians outside the Fetts. I wrote a post in the forums and got a lot of answers. There is a possibility that if you join as a Stormtrooper (or whatever) you can go in a different costume (like a Mandalorian) to an event as long as it's OK with the event organizer or or garrison commander. I think.
As for the 501st I have been a member for a few years now so I am not worried about getting this Jango version in. I am going to try how ever. And the 501st does let EU costumes in. They just have to be well documented and be profetionaly done just like a regular Star Wars costume. Examples would be Durge, Prince Xixor, Darth Reven, Arc Troopers, Black hole Troopers, Magma Troopers, Mara Jade...and the list goes on and on. So it is possible.

well they rejected my kir kanos costume.
Love the helmet, it looks great and the idea of doing a different version of Jango is very cool.
It would be great if the 501st would accept Customs and more EU characters/versions. I've been a member for a few years now, and I think it could attract more people to the 501st. Especially since the future of SW will be heavliy carried out by the EU. I really don't see why it would be a problem as long as you had at least 1 costume that was considered movie canon. Since most events are not canon events you could probably troop in your custom or EU version pretty often. But that's just my opinion.
I like that color. What color did you use?
The 501st does accept EU characters. It even has an entire detachment dedicated to EU characters, www.flagshipeclipse.com.
As for Open Seasons Jango, a member of my Garrison has his approved.
Red- Garnet Red by Rust-oleum
Silver- Pewter R&B
Dark Metalic- Flat Black and Metal Silver...This part I painted flat black first then did two light passes with the silver. After that I wet sanded the silver a bit and it gave me the charcoal metalic look I desired.
Weathering- Burnt Umber and Black mixed and applied at full strenghth (no watering down)

R&B is "Rub N Buff" The color is pewter.... You can find it at most craft stores (I found it at Micheal's in the aisle with the adhesives).
