    Proto-fett, could you scan all the pics of his armor that are in the comic and post them up? Even bad reference is better than no reference

    Yeah, no problem. Except no scanner. What I do is take a digital camera photo, then feed it into my computer, clean them up a little post them. It seems to work just fine! I did that with the Boba and Jodo photos a bunch of posts ago. Give me a day or two and I'll get it done.

    Just wait until you see stuff from late in the series when Cynthia Martin started drawing it. Hoo-hooooo, you're going to see some seriously bad illustrations!

    I think the piped, minimally-armored suit would look pretty cool in person, actually.

    I just though of something:

    Why don't you just join with the FX that you already have and make the Shysa costume based on the version you like. The big thing, at least where I am, is the QUALITY of a costume. As long as it's not an "official" LFL event like the Rose Parade, a Lucas/SW actor's appearance, or a film-canon-only thing like STAR WARS WEEKENDS, etc. you can wear whatever costume anywhere you want as long as it's good. See, I only have a Authenticprops TK so far, but if I happened to make a kick-*** Bossk and wanted to wear it to a con or something, no one can tell me not to. It may not be a 501st approved costume, but I am an official member. And it's well done, I just happened to not submit it.

    That's how I've seen it around here sometimes, anyway. And we all get along perfectly.

    That seems to be the general consensus, thanks for the support. I already am a member of the Great Lakes Garrison, just to let you know!

    I wanna say that some our members modled for some Dala/Sysha illustrations back in the day. If i'm not mistaken, Blastech modled for this one. it was a while ago though, so my memory is kinda foggy.

    Just a note. The image below is not Fenn Shysha... It is Tobbi Dala.

    Thanks for stopping by. This is kinda my home thread! Of course the above photo is Tobbi Dala. The thread is about the both of them, the Protectors in general, and my idea to turn it into a custom, as well as to get as many people's input as I can with the whole idea.

    Thanks for the links. I'll be looking to do a little cleaner of a job with matching green armor and softparts, without the blue on the helmet cheeks. Oh, and I probably won't be going for that just crawled out of a restaurant dumpster look.

    looks like a cool set of armor but, other than the jaig eyes, nothing about it says fenn shysa. i probably wouldn't have even guessed it. it looks like a custom boba.

    I disagree, the colour of the helmet fits perfectly with the picture posted by Revolver Ocelot. As does the torso armour, the fact that sadly that is almost all you can see in the picture makes the rest of it conjecture. Okay, yes he could've worn a green fllightsuit and vest, who knows... he may have upgraded to that by now, but if you look at the source material posted in this thread Fenn's colours and look are hardly consistent - He seems to change his look as much as Boba does! So aside from the afore mentioned green softparts, I doubt I would've had much trouble recognising him as Fenn Shyssa rather then Boba

    Thanks for both of your input. I have yet to post the additional shots of the two Marvel comics with Shysa I promised a while back, sorry. When I do, you'll see You were right, he changes looks more than a chameleon. It was the bad 70's/80's lack of attention to detail comic industry. If a Shysa comic were to be done now, I'm sure that wouldn't even be an issue!

    If I'm not mistaken, that one single fan pic is the only one were Shysa is represented with light blue on the helmet. I'm not digging the blue too much.

    The Hasbro figures pretty much nailed the old Marvel comics look that I like. My Suit will in essence will be my interpretation of what a Mandalorian Journeyman Protector would look like. A "General Issue" Mandalorian Protector, if you will. Based off of Boba, not Jango, all green soft parts (L.S.F.U.) and green armor, including JP, Gauntlets and Helmet (all BM). The helmet will have the green/red/white and gold, just like the comics and the figures, with weapons to be determined later.

    I appreciate the input, keep it coming.
