Fenn Shysa's canon appearance?
« on: Dec 21, 2009, 03:11 AM »
Anyone know? I checked out his article on Wookieepedia and there are several images of him, mostly from the old Marvel comic series. In those it looks like his armor and gear is pretty similar to Boba Fett's, especially during the Clone Wars. He is sporting some Jaig Eyes though. Later however, during the Rebellion he's sporting white armor with no markings and a ridiculous orange flightsuit.

There is one pic however, from Star Wars Gamer where he's back in the green armor, but no markings. This is the one I think looks the best. Looking for feedback however. Here's that pic.

The gun is pretty cool looking IMO.

Anyone else notice that the armor on his torso is radically different?

Ha, I know it can get confusing when they all have the same olive armor but the dude with the Blood Carver in the first pic is supposedly Fenn Shysa.

Here's Jodo Kast (and not for much longer apparently... :'()

No it's not Jodo Kast.  I have that issue of the Star Wars Gamer and it is definately Fenn Shysa.

Has anyone done the "soft" Mando that he sports in the Marvel comic run? I like it and would be interested if someone has a pattern.

I didn't even know there was a "soft" Mando armor.

The tricky thing about Fenn is that in nearly every publication that featured him, he was drawn a different way.  I tend to prefer the look he had when he first appeared, in "The Search Begins".  Of course, his armor and soft parts are all the same bright green in that comic... so if I were to build the costume, I would tone it down a bit to be a more olive(Boba-ish) shade.

I have seen one or two costumers' versions where the kit is exactly the same as ESB Boba Fett except for the helmet and the lack of Fett's chest emblem. Honestly, when interpereted that way, I think it looks too much like Boba because even the soft parts are identical. 

Anyhow, my favourite pic of him is this one:



It has the green soft parts, but the kit isn't as brightly coloured as in the old comics.  The only thing I would change is the blue/grey on the helmet to black.

By "soft" costume I mean the appearance like in the picture Venn posted above (as he also first appeared in Marvel).  It is a soft looking vest (quilted maybe?)  over a flight suit (or integrated into) but with standard Mando helmet and gaunts.

I have never seen anyone attempt to make anything like that. It looks to me like a flak vest with a quilted panel, maybe trimmed with cording of some kind. It could be an interesting project to try and figure out how to make it. :)

Poor sheb is karking Mand'alor and he can't even afford proper armor haha. ;)

So Mar'eyce you're saying a green flightsuit and vest with olive green armor would be good? Cause I agree with you about the potential to look too much like Boba Fett. And regarding the pic you provided (where he doesn't look old enough to shave lol), why change the grey to black?

lol....I guess not being able to afford armor would make sense if this took place during the time when the Empire had taken over and Fenn and his guys were all living in treehouses in the jungle. ;)

But anyhow, I do think the kit would look good with olive green armor and perhaps a faded green for the soft parts, because it would  set it apart from Boba.

And I would change the grey on the helmet to black simply because it's black in the comics.

And remember Leia confused him with Boba because his armor looked similar.

Understood ner vod. And your comments about the treehouses makes sense too.

A green vest though? Seems odd to me. And what about the other soft parts, literally the same as Boba Fett? Did he also have a cape?

People confuse Kal Falco for Boba Fett in Real Life so... I don't think the colors being so similar are an issue. The only Galaxy reknown Mandalorian at the time is Boba Fett. So, if Fenn swoops in brazen, brash, highly confident, showing leadership tendencies and wearing green... most people in the galaxy would make that assumption.

As for the colors, I agree with Mar'eyce. I've seen 1 really nice Fennn Shysha in Rl at SDCC09. It looked great but, it was essentially an ESB Boba Fett repaint. So much to the point that the only way I realized it wasn't an ESB Boba was the jaig eyes on the helmet. To me, that's just incorrect and inaccurate to the character.

Of course, I can;t stand the bright lame green and the gold and silver/white armor either.

I see Fenn in an OD flightsuit, with OD plates, his sigils, modded gaunts to look less like Boba's as Fenn had totally different equip on them. The JP shouldnt be the same as Fett's either. As for the helmet, I like the blue cheeks and white face.
