That's the real question, as I'm not sure how the standard Boba should wear it best. There are a number of solutions, and I'm not sure how they work.

Due to a general lack of local interest, I am suspending this build. I'd like to see it happen, but it's too much of an investment in money and time to work on something that won't be appreciated locally. :(

I'd like to see it finished and I'm sure there are lots of people who want to see it finished.

I build for myself, I am happy if others are interested or like what I do but in the end this is my hobby. I think you should enjoy what you are doing for yourself, not your clan mates.

I was enjoying watching this build and would like to see you keep up with it. It is a unique build and worth exploring, but if you prefer to your energy elsewhere work on another kit thats cool.

For what it is worth, as a not-quite member, I think this would be a great project to continue, I think you could do it and make it look fantastic, and am of course willing and able to help in any way I can.  I realize I'm just one local and not even a clan member, but if you decided to resume, you would have my full support.

Ok. Looks like we're on again for the build. Helmet is en route. Stay tuned for updates, etc:)

Mith, glad you decided to continue.

I do want to bring up a point though, aside from completely agreeing with Tact. YOU are part of Clan Command. In fact you're a Ruus'alor. This means that it's your job to PUSH the quality costumes on the rest of the Clan. Lead by example by making awesomeness happen. Teach others how in the process. That's a brilliant opportunity and a great responsibility, and you've certainly got the talent and planning ability to do it. Just gotta keep the mindset man.

Tact -

Went with the budget cold cast Boba from Asok. Looks like a very nice piece. Just need to order myself a T Visor.
Helmet should arrive any day now.

Very much appreciate your support, and kind words. Aside from that, the point you raise is precisely why I decided to continue with the build.

Your going to really like the Asok, I was fortunate enough to get one from Bill Warren before he passed, but it seems that his vod has done an excellent job continuing the Asok quality.

As Tact intimated, the Asok FP bucket has arrived, and I am indeed quite pleased. Just spent some time a few moments ago doing the "steel wool" polishing of the surface. A real beauty; almost a shame to have to paint over it. But that I shall. Pics, etc as I prepare to paint it.

Here's what I found out about the back plate. Granted this is a Kubrick Figure but they're pretty good at scaling this stuff down.

Very good find, Krie. Thanks. Quite useful. Noticed one other thing - looks like there is only one jet pack nozzle, mounted directly on the centerline?

Kubrick is pretty good about this stuff - their research is usually better than Hasbro's, and they have a distinct "Droids" style Boba aside from simply re labeling the HS Boba.
