Hey all, Finally getting around to starting a build thread for my ROTJ Fett. I am an active member of the Southern California Garrison, Orange County Squad of the 501st Legion as a Centurion ANH-S Stormtrooper, Executor Imperial Staff Officer, and Heavy Weapons Trooper, but an ROTJ Boba Fett has always been my ultimate costume aspiration. I started putting pieces together late last year with the purchase of some secondhand armor parts and a vest, not really knowing what to look for or what I was getting into! The armor (which was still a great deal) ended up being syntra and not approvable, but the paint isn't the worst and will make a good placeholder for now. I will likely repaint it at some point and make a generic Mando Merc costume, but that's another thread haha I am fortunate to be local to Carole of Arkady Designs and she was kind enough to fit me in person for my flight suit and soft goods. I can't endorse her enough - she makes a great product and is a super nice lady. Rubies helmet also a placeholder just for fun (I work at a Children's Hospital, so I have a bunch of the Rubies/Black Series/Voice-changer/etc. helmets in my office for kids to play with). This is where I'm currently at! Mostly for my own tracking purposes, here is a list of my parts and purchases: Helmet - Wasted Fett ROTJ FPH2 - PAINT NEEDED Neck Seal - Arkady Designs (attached to flight suit) Flight Suit - Arkady Designs Vest - Arkady Designs Girth Belt - Centaur Mohair belt (dyed using Minwax Crimson, black nylon straps added) Ammo Belt - Purchased secondhand on TDH Cape - Purchased secondhand on TDH Gloves - Mike M. on TDH Pouches and Spats - Arkady Designs Boots - old-school Mark Cheng boots - purchased secondhand - TOE SPIKES NEEDED I still definitely need: Braids - Woodman Horsehair? Body Armor + Knees + Shoulders - Wasted Fett? Gauntlets - Wasted Fett? Jet Pack - Wasted Fett? DVH? Jet Pack Harness - bigdane on TDH? "Extras": EE-3 Blaster - (I plan on trooping often, so likely Hyperfirm) Shin Tools - ? Gauntlet Darts, Metal - Machine Craft Replicas Collar Studs, Metal - Machine Craft Replicas Gauntlet Light - crumdum on TDH? Gauntlet Rocket, Metal - Machine Craft Replicas JP Beacon, Metal - Machine Craft Replicas JP Stabilizer, Metal - Machine Craft Replicas RF Stalk Servo & Light - ? Anyways, let me know some of your initial impressions, if you have any suggestions or feedback, and if I'm forgetting anything obvious! I'm currently projecting to have this done by next Christmas, as I am on a very tight budget and only buying a part or two a month, tops. Thanks for the help and feedback, guys!
