    Hey guys. Well I've decided to start a Jango Fett. My question is what is the breakdown (description) of the Jango items so I know what I'm going to need? I looked on old posts and couldn't find this info. Thanks in advance...

    Here's a list off the top of my head..

    -Helmet

    3 colors-Silver, dark blue, lighter shade blue. The most common used paints are: Rubb and buff silver leaf, krylon short cuts "ocean blue," and rustoleum "Royal blue."

    Weathering is personal preference, but I use a mix of brown and black acrylic paint

    -Armor

    Appears thinner then Boba armor, and more form fitting. Need thigh and shin armor as well. The shoulder bell and cod pieces have some differences, as well as some differences with the chest pieces. Also need to get proper boot armor as well.

    Knees as well. From what I know by mere observation, is that it has a more rounded shape in comparison to boba



    Guants

    Not knowledgable enough to really make a description

    Flightsuit

    Just need to make sure you have the correct stitching where it needs to be, as well as the proper purplish/blue color

    Shoes/boots

    Kenneth cole pit crew, but good luck finding them! Just try to find the best matching shoes with the closest looking sole.

    Bolo cord/girth belt/belt w/ pouches and holsters

    Dont really know much, so I'll let other's chime in

    Blasters

    2 shiny westar 34 replicas, either MR or a set of Cruzer's rubber MR castings.

    Jet Pack

    There are two versions, arena (or some call it "stubby) and the classic (boba fett style)
    Both however use the same main body of the classic pack. The differences are with the paint scheme. Stubby has a blue and silver scheme, while the classic has an almost ROTJ boba scheme?

    The arena has some physical differences, where on the classic you have a missle, the arean has a large dome/cone on the center, as well as smaller cones on the tops of each "fuel tank." The thrusters are different as well, located on the bottom, rather then the bottom sides.

    Thats all I got for now

    Good luck!

    I can say your best makers for say, the guants, holsters, back armor (if he's still doing them) and MR rubber cast blasters, would be to contact Cruzer.

    For the helmet and armor, I'd say try to find a BKBT that's for sale, a FettPride Coldcast ILM bucket or now, you can get the same type of helmet in an excellent kit from bobamaker.

    For the chest armor, you should look for a set of BKBT's or get bobamaker's, both have origins from the screen used armor.

    For the leg armor, hmm, I am not really sure, I think cruzer and BKBT made the thigh and shins? I am not really sure though. The knees, I would see about getting on Dark-side's list for a set of his really nice looking cold cast knees

    The girth belt, I think Cruzer does these as well. For the belt with pouches, SEEKER does an excellent set

    The flight suit, I would say to contact Bleah? I cant remember off the top of my head. I'd say to get one from bobamaker as well.

    I forgot to mention in my first post, that you'll need a flak jacket/vest. Bobamaker, GalacticBountyHunter and loanstar I believe make/sell these.

    The boots..reinone is the only maker at the moment that is even offering replicas of the pit crews used for the movie.

    The jet packs..hmm, I am honestly not sure, but if I am correct, you should be able to modify a boba classic into either versions of the Jango packs.
