    Feb 7, 2012, 12:40 PM - Ribann's Jango Fett (Finished March 2012) #1

    I am soooo close to being done with my Jango. I'm dumping pics of what I have so far so I can get some feedback. The rest of the pieces hopefully will arrive by the end of this month and I'll be finished. I was trying to delay making this thread until I had everything, but I thought better to get some constructive criticism before piecing the last of it together. Some things to note: 1) I have not weathered the rub n buff on my boots, 2) the cod/holsters/thighs you see in the picture will be replaced by Cruzer's awesome stuff, 3) Flightsuit/upper armor/flak jacket will be by Bobamaker, 4) I have MR Westars which I didn't include a picture of except in the big photo.

    Thanks go out to A LOT of you guys who have put up with my questions about little details here and there (saint_nasty, Mandalorian Guard, Mullreel, to name a few). Huge thanks to Seeker since I've tried my best to copy him and beat him over the head for as much information as possible (haha). Thanks to everyone who has made or helped in getting me any piece of my armor. I'll keep this thread updated when the last of it arrives

    So here is my stuff or soon-to-be stuff, from head to toe:

    1) Helmet made by Asok; Painted by Saint_Nasty
    2) Flight Suit by Bobamaker
    3) Flak Jacket by Bobamaker
    4) Collar/Shoulder/Chest/Ab Armor by Bobamaker
    5) Gauntlets by Cruzer
    6) Gloves by the brand Merona at Target
    7) Girth by TLobe00 (this was a beauty when I got it!)
    8.) Ammo Belt by Seeker
    9) Cod Armor by Cruzer
    10) Holsters by Cruzer
    11) Thigh Armor by Cruzer
    12) Knee Armor w/ darts by Dark-Side (currently have some from an unknown maker)
    13) Shin Armor by Cruzer
    14) Boot Armor by Cruzer
    15) Jetpack by Man of War
    16) Back Armor by Cruzer


    Extras:
    15) Master Replicas Westars
    16) Leather Helmet Gasket by friend
    17) Jetpack Harness V3 by Seeker

    I am quite jealous of those boots.

    The gear looks really good, can't wait to see you suited up.

    I'm curious if any of you Jangos use a mic system? If so, how do you do it and what parts do you use? Hopefully they are not discontinued (like a banana amp from Radio Shack). What works? I was thinking about getting this, but have no idea exactly how I'd rig it up:

    Amazon.com: Aker Voice Amplifier 10watts Black MR1506, Portable, for Teachers, Coaches, Tour Guides, Presentations, Costumes, Etc.: Electronics

    Also, if you have something that works, pics would be uber nice!

    I have never used a mic system, but I think it would be handy. It is difficult to communicate in the helmet.

    Mostly I just try not to talk, since my Texas drawl sounds nothing like Temura.

    They are Bedford STUs. They are no longer made. I bought them off of a guy on here for quite a shiny penny. The boot armor is made by Cruzer.

    Thanks go out to Cruzer for my big update today: holsters, thigh, and cod armor.

    This has allowed me to start assembling some pieces in preparation for the last package to arrive.

    Pics:

    Here is the trimmed codpiece:





    Thighs...



    Attached holsters to cod and installed snaps for the jetpack harness...



    Haven't attached the thighs yet, but here is what it will look like:



    All together:



    I was going to take apart Cruzer's holster and rig it up the way Seeker has his, but I got scared and decided not to. Updates still to come!

    Movement and appearance. The old cod piece I had was like the way Cruzer and others make theirs. The "wings" on the codpiece do not show (or should not show). Seeker has his trimmed and it makes sense to me now that I've put everything on. Much easier to move my legs around and now I won't have them poking out

    Awesome job! What did you use for the boots? (manufacturer/make) You've got a great pair of footwear there.

    Holsters dyed. Thighs attached. Girth attached.

    Everything is a little tight around the waist right now. Hopefully some regular jogging will help with that.

    You and me both!

    But man, everything looks great!

    Did you ever order that mic system? I'd want to run something too once I get my suit together.

    Thanks! I just need to do more cardio. I eat healthy, but just don't get around to much cardio

    As for a mic, I ordered one from eBay for $10 that was a complete joke. I tried emailing several people on the 501st website who have pictures with a mic on. Most of them have told me they pretty much clip the amp to their ammo belt. Fortunately for us Jangos, we don't have to interact as much with the crowds, as say, a Darth Vader would. Otherwise, the only place I can think of hooking up an amp outside of my helmet would be my jetpack.

    For now, I'm going to forgo the mic :-/

    i put together a helmet contained voice amp system using a cheap halloween voice changer. i gutted the entire thing, jumpered the connections so it was just the voice amplifier, soldered in a new mic and a switch, then hotglued everything into place inside the helmet. i like the set up so much i'm going to do it with my boba helmet when i get done painting it. i plan on taking lots of pictures during the process and may even shoot a video of the process.

    I bought one of those radio shack white amps and just gutted it and put the board and speaker behind my chest plate... I also (with my last helmet) had put the speaker in the bottom of the helmet skirt, it worked but didn't look all that pretty, lol.

    I am going to try the thinner amp from the 501st member with the wireless mics and amps and try fitting it behind my chest plates as well.

    I know some people do the jetpack thing, but I just don't want to talk out my behind... I do that enough as it is, lol
