Some interesting dates:



May 31st 2016 Rick receives his first Boba Parts and starts a build thread on Ner website.

June 21 2016 Rick submits his approval photos.

June 25 2016 Rick comments on his build thread about hoping to be approved for upcoming Heroes and Villains Troop. This would be his last post in the thread.

June 26 2018(3 years and 1 day after that post, I submit my approval photos.

July 3 2016 Rick wears his Boba for the first time at Heroes and Villains. That means he was approved somewhere between June 26 and July 3. The exact same time period I am currently waiting in. Weird right?

Best of luck to you! It looks great, and your buddies are awesome for rolling with the punches during your test fitting.

Gotta be tough to spend so much time on this stuff, only to break parts during the fitting cause you’re excited to throw it on...

So yesterday I went over to Justin and Naomis with Albert and we used his green screen to take some new submission photos. I was told to make a few changes:



1 lower the jet pack a few inches

2 more weathering on the side pouches of the ammo belt

3 more weathering on the cape (this was not from my gml but another boba so I agreed and did it)

4 when I take my new photos put the girth belt above the ammo belt like in the CRL photo.



I spent the day lowering the pack and got from here to here:

I am going to show the new submission photos in the next post. For now I want to tell a little story. It will be explained in the video, but those in the know and observant people will notice something in these photos Rick took during his build

Girthbelt/ammobelt location



I have seen most Bobas wear their girthbelt below their ammo belt. You can see this also in many movie shots. The CRL model now shows his girth above the ammo belt. (The last CRL photo had it below.) I noticed in a lot of the "staged" standing still photos, the girth was indeed above the ammo belt quite often, but in the movie because of movement it often almost always shows below. I believe the CRL model was looking at one of these "posed" reference photos when he took the CRL shots and thats why it shows above.



My GML was looking at the CRL photo for reference and was asking mw to move my girth above my ammo. Here was my first submission photo with it below.

Here it is above. I could have pulled the ammo belt up a little higher as to not show quite as much red

So we talked about it at length and ultimately they decided that it is a belt and it will move around. Sometimes it shows red on top sometimes it shows below. So they are not using this to disqualify my approval. So here are my new photos.

YEEEESSSSSS! I’m at work so I can’t watch the video yet, but obviously the remote control is something that’s a cross-thread between your build and ricks! Congratulations to you - it looks great man!!!
