Hello, everyone!

I've started working on creating a costume based on Boba Fett from The Empire Strikes Back. bh-boba-fett I've already acquired some equipment and made good progress, but there are some adjustments and changes that need to be made.

Here's what I've purchased so far:
In the mail or under production, I have the following:

  • Boba Fett jetpack harness, studs for the collar, pistol holster and boba fett shoes (not pictured) from Jimmybyron [Image: imgur.com]
  • Leather ammobelt from Handmadehorrorshop [Image: imgur.com]
  • EE-3 ESB blaster from Andy Meyers [Image: imgur.com]
The following is yet to be ordered:
  • Gloves
  • Accurate Boba Fett helmet (I currently only have a Black Series Boba Fett ESB helmet)
  • Shin tools
  • Pulse-40 pistol
  • Hoses and connectors for the right gauntlet
  • Aluminum parts for both gauntlets
  • Girth belts

I appreciate both criticism and praise! Also need lots of guidance on mounting the pieces correctly🤘🏼

Jimmybyron on eBay aka Torben Boberg aka is a known scammer. He has gotten away with several people's money. If you are within a window to get your money back, I would recommend that you do so.

Hi Machinecraft, the harness and holster are on their way and expected to arrive tomorrow. I'll share photos once I receive them. While there have been concerns about Jimmybyron, my personal experience has been positive, and he has been helpful with my questions. I’ve paid using PayPal G&S and eBay buyer protection.

Awesome - I am glad to hear it! I genuinely hope it works out and that it is good stuff. I only remember the name because at one point he had tried to buy something from me, and in the course of a few weeks contacted me using several different emails and going by several different names.

He had some spare wastedfett shoes he’s going to paint for me and ship to me after new year 😄

Customs in Norway are taking their sweet time checking the goods..

Update; filled the pockets with foam squares, I need to fill the pocket on the left side more though😄

I’m leaving for 1 month tomorrow offshore so there will not be any updates other than new orders possibly 😄
 
Update;

I have ordered metal parts for the knees and for the gauntlets from MinuteFat and ordered shin tools from Man Of War Studios.

(Picture: )

Still haven't received the jet pack harness and holster in the mail 😫
 
Happy New Year guys!
Just got back from the North Sea. Quick update here:Received the jetpack harness and holster. Not entirely satisfied with the holster as he forgot to attach the weapon lock, but he assured me he'll send it along with the boots.

Got shin tools from Man Of War Studios, fits nicely in the flight suit.
Also got the EE3 Blaster from Andy Meyers, filmed a short video of it. Quality of work is just amazing! The best piece I have!!!


Received weathering spray from Dirty Down spray yesterday and tried weathering last night, but not too happy with the result. Unfortunate mishap with soot black causing dripping. Luckily, everything washes off, so I can redo it, unless you guys have a quick fix for this?

Feedback much appreciated!
 
It's been a while since my last update, so here's a brief one:

I've received the girth belt from Regeeked Props and the shoes from Jimmybyron in the mail now, ready for pickup.
The metal parts from Minuttefett are on their way, and the leather belt from Grue (HandmadeHorrorShop) is also in transit.
Also decided to sell the cod piece ,kidney piecec and the shoulderbells I had. Found a buyer and sold it for the same price I bought it for.
I've Already ordered new ones from The Workshop.
Gloves From Clothears, and they'll be shipped on Monday. 🤘🏼

I've ordered more metal parts for the gauntlets (flamethrower) from Minutefett

Attached aswell are some pictures of the shoes and gloves 😊
