What's up guys!!
So last year about this time I started a ROTJ SE build... I had everything but the shin tools. then life hit and I was in need is some extra $$$$ because of a move my family and I were doing so I sold everything but my flightsuit.. and my day job took off and I have been working non stop so I wouldn't have had time whatsoever at that point
I had only ever tried on parts of the costume to make sure everything fit but never the whole costume itself. It was a shame, but I needed to get rid of it.

So then a few weeks ago just sitting and playing on YouTube with my son who is almost 2 now asked for babo (boba) lol and he kept saying babo! Babo! Over and over so I put on some boba stuff and we watched boba stuff for an hour haha and in seeing his excitement I totally regretted getting rid of my costume.

I thought "dam, how cool would it be for him to see a full sized boba" he has so many boba toys and figures lol he loves boba!

So I thought "well I'll see what I can do about getting another costume put together" and low and behold I found a hell of a deal I traded some stuff and got my hands on an almost complete SE set just like I had been building before! Lol it worked out perfect. Smooth deal and a great guy ...it really helped me out and it's all top notch stuff and already painted and all! I'm so happy at how this all worked out.

I am very thankful for this group and all the people and information here you guys are all lifesavers and I've learned something from probably each and every one of you

Like using Raf's templates to get a to the scratch movie accurate paint job on every hard piece of the costume

And looking up peoples builds like Raizo to get absolute perfection in each piece of the costume

And Mullreel who will help anyone and everyone to get through the little setbacks and has an answer or a valuable opinion for every bit of it
(And hooking me up with an sweet batninja vest)

There's tons of people like the different armor makers and soft part makers who make sure we have everything we need to make the build perfect there's so many people I'd like to credit.

Thank you all!!!!


So now all I need is a set of mike m gloves and MOW boots and a stormrider EE-3 and I'm done

I put most of the costume on for the first time tonight and got some pictures there's still lots I need to do but it's all in the making I'm only going to post a few pics tonight little teasers I guess
There's more to come!!!

Are those metal colar studs? Nice build! I bought your shoes and other stuff...and now you rebuild another full boba suit in no time....incredible (In my defence..i love doing stuff from scratch :D).

I just noticed that it looks like you have leather straps on the girth belt. They should be nylon webbing straps. Easy fix or easy replacement. If you end up needing a replacement let me know and I will dig and see if I have an extra one. I know I have a couple that aren't dyed yet.

Thanks bud!!! I got the whole thing almost complete so I didn't have to do too much just tweak a few things here and there and yes the color studs are metal! I'm really excited about this setup

Yes they are leather if you have an extra set of the nylon I'd be happy to buy them from you! Thanks for pointing out I need the webbing straps bud! Once I get the whole thing together please point out anything I may have missed that needs a little tweaking thanks again man!

So I decided to dirty up my flightsuit and vest a little more to give it more of a post sandstorm type of look...I've always liked the super dirty looking flightsuits when it's the right color. I used testors bomber tan for the sandy dusty look now this thing looks like if I patted it there would be a mess to clean up lol
