Title: KOTOR Jet pack question
Post by: bioshutt on Oct 09, 2011, 05:10 PM
Has any one done Zarrick'sKOTOR comic book Neocrusader jetpack? and would it be allowed for a modern era mando?

BTW it reminds me of the jetpack from The Rocketeer

Wow thats the best Shot I think I've ever seen of it, but no one has tried to make one yet to my knowleadge. I don't think there is anything in the CRL's aginst it, but in universe wise, the jet pack would be over three thousand years old. I don't think any mando would use a piece of antiquated tech like that, especially with the luck the Fetts had with thier newer models.

No reason you couldn't try your hand at building one though, I'd recomend the old Mego Blocks scuba set to start with as a base. Or if you knew of someone that makes steam punk rocketeer packs, as it in deed does look very similar.

Have a good one,
Hagen

I love that statement because all I can think about is Jango's pack bringing about his own death.  :D

Also, keep in mind, with the number of custom jetpacks in the club, you could easily build this unit without calling it a KOTOR era pack.

Here's another shot of Neo-crusader and Crusader Jetpacks from a different comic (I don't know which one)

As you can see, the Neo Crusader has basic pack that seems to blend with the rest of it's armor.

For my opinion, Its really not a problem as I can see it.
