Mixing gautlets?


Well-Known Hunter
I'll start buy saying this, I know ppl may freak at the idea, but

Has anyone thought about using a Jango Right gauntlet and Boba ESB gauntlet together on a costume? Just entertaining the thought of having symmetrical "looks" to both forearms (clean, crisp)
Idealized armor...I guess ;) just like symmetrical TK's out there or the "new"Symmetrical ROTS Vader mask.

chime in plz...cause I know once i get my ESB done and if i ever meet any of you at some con i know Boba nerds :) may say :angry "that’s so wrong" lol

Thats 1, not a good start..:lol:

Forgot to mention that it's just a thought...i may not go for it but, meh:facepalm who knows, gauntlet makers may boycot sales to me ..:lol:

'Smack' :lol: Prolly not a good idea, but hey, I guess its your suit. If your aim is to eventually join the 501st, then definately no.

I'm a member of the 501st..already. TK921.

but this is just to see what ppl thought about thinking outside the box.

custom fett...no For my ESB!

again i could argue "its my costume" and nuff said, but i just wanted to see if anyone else has thought about it..

cause i know some ppl had to have been asked the question "why is that one different"...causes the original is like that. seem like a cop out.. i figure if Jango is the base for the gauntlets, why not have them match..in sharpness?

again just throwing out and idea.:) for poops and giggles.

and i'll most likely keep both sets if i do go that way...sorry skirata

Hmmm, i figure i won't do it on my first suit.. maybe once i get it all done, i'll find time to try it out.

thx (y) for all the input!

Sounds cool to me. My suggestion would be to have the same person make both. For example MOW.

I always thought the ESB version costume for fett is better then most other versions but I do have to say the flame thrower assembly does get annoying at times and I do honestly perve on the very attractive neatness of the rotj left gauntlet.

ahem what did I just admit??

I deny everything!!

Mixing components for a custom Mando is like mixing salt and water: no problem.

Mixing components for a Fett costume is like mixing sodium and water: that is a definite "no-no." (Sodium will violently expolde upon contacting water.)
