Incredible that after exactly 2 WHOLE years, I've pretty much completed this costume. I still have a couple things here and there to adjust before I can tackle a troop, but there's no words to describe how excited I am finally getting here. BIG, BIG thanks to all of you guys that have helped below and I couldn't have done it without any of you

Helmet - Asok / Painted by Saint_nasty/Morgue
Jumpsuit - Bleahhh
Vest - Ladysewforus
Jetpack - MOW / Painted by Predatormv
Jetpack hooks - BooBooFett
Jetpack Harness - FettDad
Holsters - Cruzer
Blasters - ????
All armor/gauntlets - Cruzer


I just need to add a gauntlet hose attachment and need to alter my vest and jumpsuit a little and add snaps/velcro to the knee armor, but more or less, I'm pretty much finished with the bulk of this project and I'll just do minor upgrades from here on out just to make it even more screen accurate. I sent the pre-req pics to my local Garrison and hope to be approved in the 501st soon

Welcome to TDH! There are various people who make that style of jetpack. Depending where you live and your budget.

Bobamaker makes jetpacks www.bobamaker.co.uk

Man of War (MOW) makes them along with Bobby Fett UK (BFUK).

There are other people who make them I'm sure.

Good luck on your Jango!

ohhh, so that's who they are. Reading most threads about who made who, I was confused everytime I saw ppl's names such as MOW & BFUK, I was completely lost. I'll be sure to check them out. Thanks, MG

Nah man, you'll probably wanna avoid that helmet. Others can elaborate on the make and whatnot and if you wanna sink some time into the old threads, then you'll know. Besides the fact its coming from "out of town" so to speak. Things tend to get lost. MOW had a jetpack on there last week for $300 I think it was.

Not that its a no go, just its a dice roll. Did you see the other thread? You can get the same helmet at www.starwarscostumes.com for $70. Its not a bad helmet at all, just needs work or you can get a kit from someone on here and build it a little more accurately.

These boards are kinda slow because most everything that you'll ever wanna know about Jango (from head to toe) has been discussed before in
some of these 35+ threads over the past 5 yrs. Most people get their jango built then move on but there are a few old school types that still help out around here (see the ones with the higher post counts)

i'd suggest getting an asok helmet. it has lineage to the screen used helmet so it's accurate. it comes with everything except the visor. and the best part is that it's so much less than that one on ebay. the down side is that there's going to be prep work that has to be done to get it finished.

I would tend to agree on the Asok thing... Love mine, but bobamaker and cruzer make excellent ones as well. Just keep checking the cargo hold and this section for top notch stuff.

Welcome as well :)

The end of day 1 in my journey and I've managed to track down a flight suit and it's a go for a helmet kit from Asok. Next step, trying to track down a painter to do the helmet justice.

asok sent me a pm asking if i'd be willing to paint a helmet, would i be safe to assume that he meant you?

I had Morgue re-touch up my helmet to exactly how I wanted it(y)

Waiting on Seeker's ammo pouch, a better fitting Flak from Debbie, and Girth belt from Krohn and I can finally focus on getting all of the rest of the armor from Cruzer:D Hard to believe it's been 7 months already

Thanks and yeah, time truly does fly, I can't believe it's been a year since I've updated this thread. After 15 months, I finally got my Arena jetpack that I paid for and I'm just waiting for Cruzer to send me all the armor. I'm down to just missing gauntlets and I can't believe I've finally accomplished finishing this.

You know what...we started about the same time as each other, and we may end up finishing about the same time. I too am waiting on a few more parts and final assembly. But I didn't have to go through the jetpack nightmare that you had.

that's pretty awesome:D And yeah, the whole jetpack fiasco really made me question how bad I wanted to continue this and disappeared for a few months, but if anything, it showed me that persistence, does indeed, pay off and I'm glad I'm at today. It's definitely been a fun ride and other people building, like you, helps inspire me to finish(y)

i started my journey into jango around june 09 i do believe. and although i've gotten really good at jango, i still don't have it wearable yet. i have everything except for the d-ring holder, a jetpack harness, and the aluminum beacon. but i think i'm going to figure out a way to remedy the d-ring situation today, and if i'm really lucky, maybe get something for the harness too.

yeah, you're one of the first people I dealt with here and it was real easy. And I see your work continues to improve with every helmet paint. You and Asok should just form a team,lol
