    Interest: Boba Fett Aluminum Shin Tools

    I've had a lot of down time over the past few months and have been trying to take on more side jobs.

    That being said I will soon be machining Boba Fett Shin tools from aluminum. These won't include final weathering or decals, as I'd like to leave the option for finishing touches to the buyer, but will include all 4 tools simplified

    1. Survival knife (with options of con safe rounded or fictional ridged)
    2. Jetpack adjustment tool
    3. Sonic Beam Weapon (static and simplified without squeegee steps)
    4. Anti-Security Blade

    I have made some adjustments to the accuracy of the tools to provide most detail without bringing in an overwhelming cost for those that would prefer metals tools over resin or plastic.

    Feel free to post questions and comments.

    Thanks for all the interest guys. I will post pictures as soon as I can this week. ETA once payment is made shouldn't be more than two weeks. Honestly, I'd like to see them shipped the week paid, but I will say two weeks as we all know real life can get in the way of things and I don't want to have anyone feel like they're left hanging.

    Those are just two prototypes. There is more work to come. Just wanted to give an idea of what things will look similar to.

    Yes, price includes all 4 shins tools. I will have pictures of the sonic beam tool and jetpack adjustment tool tomorrow night. I have most of what I am working with at my job and after hour cuts I haven't been in on a weekend in 2 months.

    Re: Interest: Boba Fett Aluminum Shin Tools

    I've already answered a few PMs on this and apologize for being behind. I had some stuff come up and have been sick for the past week and didn't get everything done that I would've liked.

    That being said I updated the first post with a few more pictures, I will have pictures of the sonic beam tool by tomorrow night. I had some issues with the tool possibly not fitting in some peoples shin pockets, but all of the parties with the most serious interest suggestion I try to stick to a semi accurate dimension rather than modify the tool size to fit inaccurate flightsuit stitching.
