    Star Wars 1313 Boba ?

    Hi. I'm not sure who or where I'd ask because I'm not very active with the 501st or "in the know" when it comes to what makes a character official. However, I was wondering if this version of Boba would be a potential candidate for 501st acceptance based on the few reference pics that have been released? Reason I ask is because my son (who is now 16 and probably 2-3" taller than me) showed some interest in possibly building and trooping in this suit. So any insight from those who know these things would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Lorenzo

    because 1313 got scrapped it'll be a real hard sell to get it approved by the 501st, though that's not to say it couldn't happen, last year the albino fett costume was accepted as a costume after much back and forth. the key is to build the best **** costume you possibly can, find as many references you can. i would even suggest that you take the costume build to theflagshipeclipse.com and let thomas spanos track your progress as well as thebhg.net to let their detachment leaders follow along. take the build to the mando mercs too, they'd probably like to see that.

    I think there needs to be at least three canon references. Or maybe that is just a Mandalorian Mercs requirement?

    Glad to see the idea is catching on, lol. I'm currently gathering parts for this suit as well.

    Yea, I remember thinking it was pretty cool when someone posted it on FB, but didn't give it a second thought until my son brought it up again.

    Ken, hope you can jump through the hoops and get it approved for the rest of us.

    Cruzer, unless the game gets made it cant happen....none of that art made it to the game....unless they use it and put boba in the Rebels TV show you wont have an approved 501st suit. With that said why do you need 501st approval to wear a costume you like? I have a Mythos statue version and I think its pretty BA myself...and it wont get approved.

    Dito, a costume based on conept-arts of a Scrapped title does not count as realiable "official source" so i doubt that its gonna be approvable for any official club. - BUT, why bother. You can still make it and win the Fandom/internet.

    I dont think they will scrap SW1313 totaly - maybe overthink the concept, downsize it a bit or bring it further. Battlefront 3 was reborn by EA several years after the project got canceled by LucasArts.

    It has the potential to be an awesome game, so I hope they revisit the idea. As for 501st approval, it's just one more attainable level of recognition. Regardless it's still a cool suit I think enhanced by the rugged "Western" feel to it that is also seen in the Mythos suit.

    Looks like it'd make a good winter project. But I still can't tell what type of blasters would be best used from the pics. I also really like to see how the back looks.

    This is the only one I've got. Not much going on. looks like a leather back plate like the shoulder and abdomen pieces. As for blasters and armor, I'd just go with what you like as the game was supposed to have you essentially gather together Fett's final load out that we see on screen, which is why each concept art of the suit has different elements. Very cool idea, and I hope it gets picked back up.

    Re: Star Wars 1313 Boba ?

    Although not on the MMCC approval board, my opinion is that due to a lack of 3 proper sources it wouldn't be approved as "Canonical", but it certainly looks to have the required parts for a modern-era Mandalorian.

    According to the Wookieepedia article about Canon sources:

    "N is Non-Canon. What-if stories (such as stories published under the Infinities label) and anything else directly and irreconcilably contradicted by higher canon ends up here. N is the only level that is not considered canon by Lucasfilm. Information cut from canon, deleted scenes, or from canceled Star Wars works falls into this category as well, unless another canonical work references it and it is declared canon."

    ref: Canon - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki

    Edit: By the way- my personal opinion is that this is the coolest Boba since ESB and I hope somebody does it!

    Re: Star Wars 1313 Boba ?

    Thanks for sharing that back pic, Ken, as it's helpful in showing the ammo belt's construction.

    So correct me if I'm wrong in concluding the suit is using what looks like a faded ESB flight suit, two left ROTJ gauntlets, Boba style back, knee and shoulder armor, a Solo blaster/holster rig, and Boba ammo pouches along one side.

    Now three things I'm unsure of are all of the various ammo belt pockets/accessories, the boot accessories, and whether or not the vest looks like it has a rectangular pattern to it. Has anyone seen any of those items on other costumes to clarify?

    Re: Star Wars 1313 Boba ?

    Is it me or does it look like he has standard chest and cod armor in some pictures (using jetpack and flame thrower torching the 2 guys), but not in a lot of the others?

    The ammo belt on the boots look kind of like the X-wing pilots.

    Re: Star Wars 1313 Boba ?





    Its not you lol...I really like the design..and one of those pics he def has gaunts similar to ROTJ as well as the second pic here where he appears to have his familiar chest/ab armor and Jetpack..or at least A jetpack. I heard somewhere that as you played the game you basically "build" Fett to what we know him as in ESB as the timeline continues in the game, or something to that effect.

    No problem. As for the gauntlets. I'm thinking the right one has a keypad, and the left one might not (kind of like Jango's) but where the left gaunt is always out of frame I'm not totally sure, I'm mainly going off the photo where he's knelt down with his left hand bent up 90, where as the keypad overhangs his right hand. The flamethrower units are mirrors of each other and a completely unique design unto themselves in most photos. I did find one more photo that also shows what looks to be normal right and left ROTJ style gauntlets, like in the photo with the jetpack, but its drawn out of focus.

    back2-jpg

    Given how different each photo is, (one has a Jango holster, unidentified gun, ROTJ EE-3, and no Gaunts. Another has a DL-44, red painted Gaunts, and what looks to be a DLT-19. Another a Jetpack, etc) you can probably do any combination of gear you want, with it just centralized around the major elements seen in most of the concept art.

    I myself am probably going to be using a ESB style EE-3, custom DL44, and have a Jetpack.

    Never have I felt so cheated! I want this game! I must have it! Maybe they will turn it over to someone else to finish it and time the release to coincide with a Boba Fett spin off movie?
