    Just joined in (aka. new guy)

    Hi Guys, Ben here.

    Just joined the board a few days ago.
    Over the years I have been looking for the right Star Wars character that fit my size.
    I'm the same height as Mark Hamil, so I was wondering if wearing Fett costume will look ok on me.

    The the stromtrooper armor I got, only good as a display, and guard my display cabinet

    So what do you guys think about a 5 feet 6 inch Fett ? Anyone with around the same height ? Suggestions ?

    Looking forward to learn from you guys.

    Personally, Id say custom mando for you're height, or Boush. If I wasnt doing Fett, I would do a Boush costume. Just my .02

    Also, welcome to the fray, friend.

    Thanks for the respond guys.

    What is a "Mando" ? I read in the forum people are doing Mando, but never occur to me. Is this some kind of Fett variant or bounty hunter variant ?

    dsonik1 - I was thinking about it. Maybe after I got my MLC helmet, I will let that go.

    Mando = Mandalorian (Jodo Kast, Jango Fett, Boba Fett, etc., all mandalorians) Problem is, not much chance gettin 501st approval with custom mando. But Boush would get you a BH number.

    In the end, though, do what makes YOU happy. To hell with other peoples perceptions. If you wanna do an accurate Boba, who cares if the height is a lil off?

    TDH will be here to help, either way.

    dsonik1 - I've seen some Japanese chick wearing a GT Stormtrooper armor, and she is 5' 4". So she cut lots of plastic to make it fit her. I tried to find the pics in the web, but now I cannot find it. Anyway, in the end, she did wear it and troop with it.

    Thanks for the encouragement thou :thumbup

    Gene - That is sooo impressive. I liked it
    Which helmet did you wear ?
    I guess now I need to cash in my undervalued stocks and get a Boba

    Thanks Ben! That is a Sgt. Fang Mystery Helmet which is reinforced with fiberglass on the inside. I'd say go for it!
