I have no idea who this "baba fett" (??) is or is asking about, do you mean Boba Fett or is this "baba fett" a custom mandalorian your talking/asking about?

Pics would be great, I have never seen a pic of Boba with grey gauntlets or the harpoon thingy if that is who your asking about.
We need pics.

The "grey" gauntlet part is throwing me off, but my best guess is that he is referring to a shot of the 2nd PrePro outfit. It had the Jedi cape and also the long flamethrower with the wires and prongs at the end of it.

Sorry I couldn't get the Image host to work, but I think you could use the following parts for the ends of the flamethrower.
An RF Connector from radio shack, part # 278-140 for the bottom piece and a gas grill igniter for the top, with a washer twords the middle and abracket attaching both.
I posted the pics on my photo page:
http://photos.yahoo.com/roberteidemiller
it's the folder labled prepro flamethrower pieces.
The igniter is the part in the aluminum box in the pic.
This kind of makes since because it looks close to the actual part and you'd need a source of ignition for the flame thrower. Add some aluminum tube/rod and a coiled cord and I think you could have a convencing prepro flamethrower.
What do you think?
Thanks,
Robert E.

That is a cropped version of the pic. It was on the Fett Ref CD scanned from Star Wars Chronicles.

It's available on the online version of the Fett Ref CD, whose url I cannot remember at the moment.

Yeah, it's not that hard to make. I was able to make one out of pieces parts, most of them were plumbing pieces, and a few parts from radio shack ......

Now I know what your talking about.
It's a flame thrower.
