    SWC 5/26 Thursday Night Dinner Meet Up

    I'm happy that all of you had a blast seeing each other and spending some time together. It's also nice to put faces to some of the names/usernames. One of my fringe goals in life is to meet you in person and buy you a beer. Quoting didn’t work so great on that one lol

    SWC 5/26 Thursday Night Dinner Meet Up

    Pictures will be taken, conversations will be had, glasses will be emptied…all as if you were in attendance. We’re less than a week away, gents! This should be fun! All BFB members who will be able to attend, DO YOUR BEST to make it to the dinner. That’s usually where the MOST fun is had!

    Just wanted to make people aware!!

    I didn’t get this message. What, am I UGLY or something…? Sending banned TWICE for not showing me any love.

    These kind of get togethers are usually a major highlight of any convention. To all who can come out, DO! To those that can’t, don’t worry. Drinks will be drank for ya!

    ESB Flamethrower - A Boba Fett Builders Group Design Project

    Kidding, kidding, of course. Even though I'm an RotJ guy, I've done a handful of ESB commissions, including gauntlets. And while there are some really nice standard and upgraded flamethrower kits out there, this is one part (technically a group of parts) that hasn't ever really been TRULY...

    ESB Flamethrower - A Boba Fett Builders Group Design Project

    Despite the fact that the ESB costume pales in comparison to RotJ in all regards, including the flamethrower, this is quite exciting (to some)! ;) Any continued progress on this?

    MinuteFett restored ESB paint up

    Personally, when doing a layered helmet, I like the masking fluid to go on ONCE...meaning that by the time I'm pulling off the FINAL layer of masking, ALL layers are coming off at the same time. I hear what you mean about the stickiness of the masking fluid, so a trick I use is to take my carbon...

    How to assemble your helmet like a pro.

    Makes sense. People named Ryan are always dependable and reliable. And handsome.

    "The Unofficial History of the Boba Fett’s Costumes" Book

    All of this is SPLENDID! And yes, this book has a VERY special place in my collection. The new (old) photos shown are definitely reason enough to have a copy, but the subject matter was handled with care and love, which our guy deserves. Never picked up a copy of Chronicles...always been on my...

    Event March 6, 2022 Capitola Collectacon "Feast with the Fetts"

    By the way, that fully-dressed Fett in the middle of the picture is the Hot Toys 1/4 Boba Fett from a few years ago. Guess nobody could find a passable photograph of the actual suit to use. Hmmm....

    Event March 6, 2022 Capitola Collectacon "Feast with the Fetts"

    Interesting to see them all in one shot, to get a sense of their heights. Everyone but Logan wore 'a' version of the OT suit.

    How to assemble your helmet like a pro.

    Excellent tutorial! When I started out, I was using a ton of pilot holes and jeweler's files to clear out the key slots. Yeah, THAT was time...spent. What would be REALLY nice is a place to purchase a set of the interior clips in one package!

    MinuteFett's RotJ Helmet - A Review

    For metal, I have two sets of Elstree ears (one ESB set and one RotJ set) and now the MinuteFett version. In resin, I have several sets that have been engineered to fit the 'lineage' ESB and, by extension, this RotJ (not recasts in any way). All of them fit both my 'lineage' ESB and this RotJ...

    PP2 Ord Mantell's PP2 Build

    Delicious! Lucky you, with PP2 helmets basically falling out of your pockets… Couldn’t agree more. A funny thing happened when I received that MDF…could’ve done a variety of helmets. Went with PP2. And, while I always LIKED it, well enough…painting it causes you to slowly fall head over heels...

    MinuteFett's RotJ Helmet - A Review

    UPDATE! I’ve recently received a set of MinuteFett metal ears. New photos (potentially a standalone review of the ears themselves) will come this weekend. Great time to be a Boba Fett fan!

    MinuteFett's RotJ Helmet - A Review

    Greetings, Builders! Finally! Pretty much, for the better part of the last year (at least), I've been meaning to do this. Most of this is already known, but this review has been a long time coming. As with many things, I meant to post it at least a year ago, but life and such... that said, I...
