Boba Fett ROTJ Project.
« on: May 09, 2013, 10:48 AM »
UPDATE:

The project is completed, I was recently approved by the MMCC and the 501st!!! Feeling awesome about this!  8)

Hello.

I've been working on this for over 10 years, due to budget restrains and such I had not been able to make any advances on this build until recently.

I wanted to share my progress so far and see if there is any feedback from the experts.  There are some things on my build that I plan to replace eventually, like the helmet for example, mine is a Don Post (Modified) but I can't buy another right now, so I decided to paint it to the best of my abilities.  I replaced the lid for an Animefan helmet.

The blaster is a Kenner, I removed the scope and added a real scope that I feel matches the original very closely, and also added a wooden butt stock to it, it makes it only 1" shorter than the ones I've seen here, but I need to get another peace of wood to do another one a little thicker, until I can buy a real prop. And I finally could get an awesome one.

The boots are the same, I made mine at home until they can be replaced, as well as the flight suit, I think that one is good.  Replaced for MOW Boots.

Here are some pics of some of the things I am working













This is just for the JETPACKS but I thought I share one pic of the gauntlets.

Hoping to buy a new kit soon, probably on Friday, is from a friend who bought one and is selling it.

Looking forward to start this project again.

Yes, you have to put it together yourself.  It took me around 9 hours and then 2 days to paint and weather it.

MLS is run by one of the members on here.  Like most makers who make multi piece molds like this he does offer an assembled kit, but it costs more.

If you enjoy the process is actually really fun.  As for the price, they are a bit expensive but well worth it.
