    I am finally at a good spot to start posting my Jango Build.
    Due to me being built like the rancor keeper, this is going to be a display piece with the twist that it will be trooped by my good friend Wasteland from time to time.

    Start date for the Build was 12/31/2014 and Big thanks for all the help getting this far to Cruzer, Arkady, SEEKER, Wasteland and Sleepalot.

    Parts list to date.

    Undented Helmet 2nd hand ASOK off of the interporn web.
    Dented Cruzer Helmet, paints by Cruzer
    Knees are made and finished by Cruzer in his new medium size.
    Armor and gauntlets by Cruzer, finished by Sleepalot.
    Arena Jetpack is a 2nd hand MOW, needs a little touch up and weathering.
    Bolo and Holsters are 2nd hand never used, made by Cruzer circa 2006/2007.
    Leather belt and functional pouches are 2nd hand never used and I am unsure of provenance.
    Boots are from crow62.
    Jeppack harness is newly made by SEEKER.
    Leather vest is a 2nd hand Loanstar V1.5.
    Flight Suit is a custom made by Arkady, fitted to Wasteland. (Seriously a sweet suit).
    Blasters are a set of slightly blemished MR that I found a few years back w/out any paperwork or documentation. Have a pristine set that are in cases so I am pretty lucky.
    Gloves are Fratelli Orsini of Amazon, "Cobalt" color and I think they are a little too dark.
    Gauntlet missile is resin RDK (have a Dark Side metal one too).
    Still need to install Dark Side gauntlet darts.

    First fitting on Wasteland went pretty well, we spent a lot of time hitting up reference photos and hitting up a member or two for some advice to make sure we got things placed properly. We started off by using industrial Velcro to stick things in place and made adjustments. Hidden button snaps are going to be used to for a majority finshed product to keep everything in place lots of work for that and overall weathering still required.

    I used to collect MR stuff and have a pretty solid collection over all, with a few pieces missing (thermal detonator, Fett blaster and a handful of others) and then drifted away from collecting SW stuff about 5 years ago. When I decided to start building. Boba and a Jango this past year. I started to try and fill any voids in my collection. So I hunted and hunted for a good set of MR display blasters and the prices are stupid high, the. I finaly found a set with case and all the goodies for about $400 less than what they usually go for. Same week as I was waiting for my set to show up I was going through my house and found a hidden MR box on top of a bookshelf. Inside was a set of slightly damaged MR blasters, that have no documentation or plaque. Best I can remmber is that I got them from a guy who had his replaced by MR due to the blemishes or something like that and then I forgot about them for 5 years or so, out of sight and out of mind.
