Boba Fett Post-sarlac (repainted)

After being blown away by the new episode of The Mandalorian, seeing Boba with some FRESH armor, and him finally being Mandalorian again I’m wanting to finally get working on a kit for Boba. I can make the torso armor plates on my own but absolutely need to source the gauntlets, jet pack, and helmet ideally this will be a build thread, but it will of course take time.

I am also wondering if there are any soil 3D printing files for Boba that could be used with 501st and Mandalorian Merc approval in mind?

I am not sure if this is allowed or not, but i also am in love with the new paint job, has anyone talked about what paint color that is? I would love to make this version of Boba.

After the delay and finally getting a real job after struggling for a bit, I got the armor ordered for the bits I need. I have been having issues getting into contact with Wasted so I’m looking for any other sources on a helmet that will be 501st approvable? Been messaging him on Instagram and on the website for months and gotten no reply to any of it.
Definitely don’t mean to disparage the guy; dude was like a hero to me in highschool, I’m sure he’s just busy, but I’d like to get the parts I’ll need.

Do you know of a reference for the differences in the helmets? Thanks for the save, I assumed it was a ROTJ helmet this whole time I’ll have to do more digging.
Helmet is much different. Red Bow Props makes a very nice helmet. He’s on Etsy. Wasted Fett is probably the most accurate, but sometimes DMs can slip through the cracks. Helmet dent, ears, turn signals, Borden connector, and dental files are different than ROTJ. Also, as of right now, there’s no truly SA armor either. Wasted Fett is making the SA rubber armor, but I’d imagine it’ll be another few months. Bobamaker is working on the armor and jetpack as well.

Thank you for the breakdown.

After going through some other gentlemen’s build threads I came across this awesome flack vest by Matej at FettArmory and got the first bit of soft gear ordered. Have to wait to start ordering everything else so the Mrs doesn’t get too suspicious.

Getting started on the RedBowProps helmet. Does anyone have more high res photos for the helmet to see what is and isnt textured? Some of the chrome/exposed spots from the sarlac are clearly smooth and not textured, but the texture is clearly not as varied/sparse as if the post sarlac damage was the rule for where it is and isn’t. Trying to edit the pictures from HowToBoba for clarity and it’s just not cutting it.

There’s a website called cap-that and they have nice hi-res screen grabs from season 2. Just as a note, there are still no up close shots of the back of the repaint helmet. I opted to use some (not all) of the Cobb Vanth damage. You can see from the shots in the Slave 1 and the end scene photos on cap-that, that not all of the damage is present. So, I suppose some creative liberty can be taken.

Thank you for the help, I am definitely on the same train of thought with that. I would venture to say the vast majority of the acid damage is ignored in place of having varied stippling, on the helmet. A lot of the chest armor is close if not all in the exact same places, but the helmet is drastically different to the point of having a few smooth spots where there wasn't corrosion before.

Decals and soft parts are on order. May end up needing to tone down the erosion but I will be waiting for the CRL/submission time to be before breaking out the sand paper to not take too much out of it.

Have you taken a look at this here thread? It contains a DRAFT of the CRLs
