    Quick hello; my name is Johnny, and like many, this is not my first build. I'm a member of Cloud City Garrison, TK8897.

    As a kid, like many of you, I thought the Stormtroopers were the coolest. Right up until we got a good look at Boba Fett. I wanted to do a Fett for my first costume but was talked out of it due to time and cost. Well, I've got nothing but time now, and the cost can be stretched out, so I feel like it's time to build the costume I really wanted.

    I'll be doing an ESB Boba Fett build, for no other reason than I think I like his blaster the best in that edition.

    Any and all advice is always welcome. I'll read the stickies for sure, and glean what I can, but at some point, I'm sure my questions will strictly become about "providers". I can do some finish work on my own, but I can't sew a lick. I don't expect this to be a quick process at all; I think my expectations are aligned properly.

    I really wish I hadn't waited to so long to put this project at the top of my priorities.

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome. I'm new myself and the time I have spent reading over the forums I have seen these people have huge hearts and are very kind. Everything you need is on this site.

    Not sure how much info you may want or how much you already know but here is some good info.

    For ESB Helmet look at this forum for a helmet pulled from a mold from the original PP2 Boba
    (Read the whole thread to understand what the helmet is)

    Here is more of a budget helmet

    Here is quality belts

    For boots you can go to Champion Attitude Boot Company 3 results found for 'boba fett' Cowboy Boots to Wear, Cowboy Boots to Admire.

    I'm going to start my Super Trooper build in the next couple weeks. So we can learn together!

    Welcome I am new as well And I am doing an ESB Fett. I agree the blaster is best in ESB. I am in the process of acquiring one. I also put this off due to cost and life getting in the way, but the wait is over. Best of luck on our Fett.

    it was a chance meeting with some cloud city garrison members in october 2006 at the comic book shop across the street from the h.p. lovecraft film festival that got me interested in joining the legion. mission accomplished in almost two years to the day with my rotj boba fett, and now i'm det xo of the bhg and garrison co of timberline. so a big thank you to all the troopers in pdx.

    by any chance does your garrison have any members in eastern oregon?

    Sainty_Nasty - I'm not aware of anyone in Eastern Oregon. We had one fellow in Bend, but I believe he has since moved West of the mountains. We have a few as far south as Grants Pass and Klamath. But I think most of us are in Portland, Salem, and Eugene.
