Hey everyone! My name is Ben from Tampa, FL. Long time Ex-501st member getting back into the game. I had an amazing ESB Fett from 2016 that I sold like a doofus.

My goal is to complete this new kit by Mid-2023. I've already ordered a lot of items. It was tough trying to remember what to buy where etc. So here goes nothing, cheers!

Cape questions.

Does anyone know of a good source for one?

Also is the cape that ManOfWar sells (Blanket type material) accurate? I honestly do not know.

I think his blanket type cape is more accurate than the basic one I bought from him 2 years ago. I will eventually switch over to that one

I’m looking at selling my MOW wool cape here pretty soon. It’s nice just not super accurate and the material used in the film is more of a canvas type material if I’m correct. Check out “ordmantells” build on here which is basically the Bible for boba fett builds especially his ESB!

This is it and I did take some clippers to it a few times along with a razor to try and thin it out even more because when you first get it it’s pretty fuzzy looking. Hope this helps!

Welcome [back] to the hunt! I second the recommendation for a canvas-based cape. I know this piece isn’t definitive, but the wool approach makes little sense to me.

Why not use found parts for your shin tools? There’s really no reason not to these days.

Thanks! I honestly did not see the found parts for the Shin Tools. I'll look into that.
