    New guy

    How's it going everyone! I have been in the 501st for the last 4 years and just getting curious of going to a Boba Fett. Just wondering where to start. I would prefer to buy a complete Fett vs building my own. Any good place to start looking?

    welcome and this is the best place for the fett...if you have copious amounts of $$ to throw around you may be able to purchase a complete fett but its not the same as building your own

    Nice! I plan to retire in 10 years and I will move back to VA! I will be in the boonies but I am sure I could make it out of the hills to do a little trooping. Lets hope. Is trooping called something else on the DH? Just curious.

    Welcome brother!

    Trooping is "trooping" everywhere.

    As you know by now, this is THE place for all things Fett. If you are looking for a complete suit, I would suggest looking at bobamaker. However, there are many great "vendors" here to source parts from. bobamaker, fettpride, FettDad, Bobby Fett UK, Mojo-Fett, Man of War Studios, Woodman, Serenity, mrgr8ness, Fettronics, BBF (me )...and so on.

    Best of luck on your new adventure. We'll all be watching for your WIP thread!

    Yep here at DM. If you are associated with helos then I no doubt you are gone all of the time. Those poor guys are in and out of the AOR constantly.

    There is about 11 difrent arangments ,
    first concept for fett ,was the all white #Super trooper , then there are the preproduction versions,#PP1 Eye,=then they changed a few things to make it the #PP1 ears, then the #PP2 , which was the ESB promotional Fett (best one IMO) , then #PP3 , and there is the prepro touring prompotional also know as the #Sandy touring, then the #ESB then the #ROTJ , then the special edition #SE ROTJ , and the #SE ANH, and also the #holiday special animated Fett,
    And in the difrent exerbitons they have mixed a few difrent pieces up hear and there so they also count #,M,O,M myth of magis , and #A,O,S,W art of star wars plus a few of dirffent mix's of the preproduction Fetts as well

    Thanks Jinto you are making these translations for me easier! Fet for real that bites getting a taste of the flying life to go back to the ammo dump. It will get better no doubt!
