    EU rebuild, You sir require no rebuild. That is one fine custom. I really like the gun metal scheme. Th only thing I would suggest is maybe you could try a different type of shoe or paint the soles of those. Other than that that suit is sweet!

    maybe a cloak, cause the bottom halfs needs somthing more.

    good work.

    I posted two threads with a voice amp, and jango gloves in the cargo hold, maybe check those out.

    Wow! You were with Tem!!!!! He was married to my mom's roommate's cousin. Oh, sorry, back to your costume. Your boots need the stitching blacked out. Also, on the Mandalorian troopers from the pre-pro drawings, some wore boots like yours, but there was a cylinder-like tube around the calf-part of the boot. Also, add more belt pouches...the one you have is cool...4 of them would be really cool. y the way, where did you get them? PM me.

    I agree, a cape or skirt (like ARC troopers) might be cool.

    Say hi to C*E*N*O*B*Y*T*E...he is a dark Fett!

    Later!

    That looks really good.

    I agree with the cape, the boots really throw me off though, maybe some CA boots painted all black would look good without toe spikes, what about a large holster for your blaster that straps on your waist/hip on the right side and the cape on the left to give the suit contrast, never seen that done before.

    the strap that holds the blaster holster could be thick to act as the cumberbun, havent seen to mayt mando's without that. Then hang your pouches off, with mayve some tools hanging off the belt, or concusion/thermal detenators. some made up armor symbols would look good to

    This was all my own design, I never even looked at any EU charaters
    I used to have stormtrooper armor way back when that is how I got my
    TK number with the 501st, now all I have is my custom fett so I would need
    to change it to BH648 but i am told that designation is only reserved for
    a canon style bounty hunter Fett, Jango....
    So I am trying to make due with what I have, and not spend alot of money on a new fett costume, so right at this time I will stay on the inactive list

    I want to thank every one that made suggestions for this costume

    The suit looks good. I would definitely black out the thread on the boots, give it a cape, and maybe accent parts of the armor with a different color, like around the T-Visor.

    Hey man, nice color choices! I'd also add something like a half-cape to thicken up things from the waist down. And about not knowing much about EU's characters: Don't sweat it-you just created one! That's the great thing about the SW universe. Constant additions...
