    Aug 21, 2007, 2:02 PM - McQuarrie white backpack #1

    Not sure if I am adding this to the correct area, so please move if needed.

    I am looking to make the backpack featured in the 3 pics of the white McQuarrie Fett, the one with what looks like the small multi-rocket launcher.

    Has anyone tried to do this before, or does anyone have any ideas on where I can start looking for some helpful tips?

    Just starting on this, and hoping to get by with a little help from my Dented friends.

    Maybe not the most accurate reference, but have you tried getting the figure?

    I wish. All the stores near me are sold out of it, if they even had it. I swear TDHers are flying to NJ and buying them all up.

    You should go find a worker in the toy department, the walmart near me held every mquarrie fett that came through. Kept them in a box, had at least 12 of them.

    those sneaky nerfherders


    as far as the backpack goes, the figure would be ideal, since it's a physical thing with proportions (tiny, yet usable proportions none the less) that can be applied to a prop. the other top source would be just looking for pictures online, maybe of the figure, or even mcquarrie's original designs that lucasfilm or some lucky fan, put online.

    good luck, and that would be awesome to see, traditional :jet pack are nice...but it would be great to see a :jet pack ( i love icons )

    Well with only 1 Fett to a crate... chances of getting one are slim to none.

    Ayka, that would be great. Shots of the back and side profile shots would be a big help. Need to get an idea of size so I can start drawing up some sketches. The big problem I'm going to have is when it comes time to do all the little details, and that interesting shoulder catch will prove interesting...

    I made two of the McQuarrie Fett jet packs from scratch. It's the design from the paintings McQuarrie did at Bespin. Doesn't have the rockets. One is still unbuilt and in the hands of a friend, but I don't know what condition it's in. Could see if I can get it for you.
