    Aug 11, 2009, 5:37 AM - Uk Newbie reporting in! #1

    Hi guys,
    I just signed up here and thought I should introduce myself.

    I'm a 32 yr old guy from the cold north east of England (imagine Hoth with more Wampas!) and a member of the Rebel Legion and UKG of the 501st, though currently only have a Jedi costume. I've decided the sensible thing to do is get myself kitted out as good old Boba, who was always a favourite of mine (not alone on that here I guess?). So here I am.

    I'm planning a long project here as I'm not the wealthiest guy in the world, nor the most skillful so slow and steady is best and I'm afraid I'll be bugging you all for help and advice.

    I read a few post about cost breakdowns and stuff which has really helped guys thank you. I also wanted to say how great it is to visit (and join) a board where everyone is so helpful and friendly, so refreshing to become part of such a welcoming community!

    Anyway I'll not take up any more of your time (for now) but look forward to speaking to you all soon,

    take care,

    D

    Welcome aboard bro!! I'm in Wales at the moment but will actually be up your way in the new year as we're relocating. I lived up there once before and have to agree with you. Hoth with more Wampas is spot on!! LOL!

    Like Nate(Heatshock said, Gav's(Mojo-Fett) your guy.

    So where in the NE are you? I used to live in Stockton-on-Tees and will be heading to Hartlepool in Jan/Feb.

    I'm in Jarrow, South Tyneside - just outside of Newcastle, God's country! Lol

    a town who's culture is based around the Viking warriors who invaded all those years ago - I believe the brochure advertises it as a wretched hive of scum and villainy!

    give me a shout when ur in the area and I'll show you the sights buddy!

    Thanks for the welcome guys, really looking forward to getting to know you all better and getting started on my Boba costume

    Welcome to TDH fellow Brit. You'll certainly find it an invaluble guide to all things Boba. You thinking ESB, ROTJ or SE?*

    I was torn between ESB and RotJ but now realise the SE are in the mix too!! Think it'll be RotJ for me though - this was my first plan so think I'll stick to it, just like the colour scheme etc, though I will do some more homework on the SE before committing. Any pointers on the main changes in the SE would be great!?

    Wae'aye man!

    Why do I always think of Viz and Biffa?

    Anyway, great to have you on board. Currently putting an X Wing pilot together so sure I can bug you just as much.....if not more.

    SE is pretty much ROTJ with ESB bucket. There are some smaller details, but thats it basically.

    I went with SE as he is way dirtier!

    Dirty is good, don't want to be too clean and shiny - want to look like this Boba has seen some action you know?
