    Zoltan Tyrell. Jango Finished

    Hi everyone. Ive been scouting around here for a short while to see who does what and how much it costs. Im TK-8089 from the UKG. Been thinking what to do next as i kinda want to stand out a little. Jango is a no brainer.

    Thought id now say hi now as ive got the armour bits come through from Cruzer(still got some bits to get from him and what a great guy to deal with). Got ammo belt from Seeker(amazing lightning delivery). Awaiting Flight suit and jacket from Bobamaker, Jet Pack from bobby fett uk and ali bits for the gauntlets from Dark-side. So still a hell of a long way to go.

    Sooo i thought id post some pics to start off.
    Just finished polishing and weathering my armour so this is all i can show at the moment. Im pleased with it up to now.
    So, hi guys. look forward to talking with you all.

    Looks like you're doing it the right way. Get all the good top quality parts the first time and it will save you money on upgrading later.

    Jango is a no Brainer? Hhmmm?

    A little questionable about that. Jango is not an easy task to work with. there are a lot of hard items/things to come by.

    That is a frosty start to a Jango my friend! Welcome and good luck. These bounty hunters aren't easy to get together into a good looking costume but it's so worth the effort when you are finished. Which never seems to happen. There are always tweeks!

    Yeah, a no brainer. As in it dosent take much thinking about which costume is gonna stand out. Dont you agree?
    Or does no brainer mean different things in the UK and the US? Means its "obvious"

    Ive got the GBX boots as i cant get any others. And im getting the pistols off Cruzer.
    The only thing i cant get is the Girth belt.

    "...no brainer."-Definitely agree. The Jango suit is just so cool and very noticable...and even very versatile if someone wanted to go EU or custom.

    You did a great job finishing that armor.

    Re: Starting my Jango and saying hello

    Cheers guys. I enjoyed weathering it. I thought it would be pretty difficult but i just put on smears of black acrylic with orange enamel. Wire wool it and the shavings stuck to the orange and took off some of the black. Looked right so i repeated.
    I agree Cruzer, nice armour. Dark-side, knees worked out a treat.

    As soon as i make anymore progress ill post.

    Ha ha, Nice one Cruzer. Thanks for that. Bobamaker says we are still on schedule for this month. Id better start finding some space to put these things so i can work on them.
    Still need a girth belt though. The place in the UK that sells bolo keeps saying they will have some in soon, but it never seems to happen.

    Thanks guys

    Re: Starting my Jango and saying hello

    evening. Well ill post a couple of pics but im waiting for the flight suit and jacket as i said above. So not much to post really.

    Pic of the Cruzer holsters and blasters. The Seeker ammo belt and piece of leather for the girth.
    I love the work of Cruzer and Seeker. Top products.





    When i held the helmet i was happy. As soon as i had the lid i knew Jango was just around the corner
    Another Cruzer work of art.


    Gauntlet darts off of Dark-side. nice


    Test fitted the pieces for the gauntlets.


    Just glued the hinge on. CA glue on the base and on the top


    CA glue on the base and two part epoxy on top. Trying this to see if there is any difference in strength.


    Thats it for now. Ill add as i build.
    If there are any recommendations from any of you i will welcome them.
