    Boba Fett with ball joint hips

    Here's my custom Boba Fett with ball joint hips.
    The helmet is a cast by StarWarsGeek Customs.


    Hope you like it!

    Thanks all!

    I used the Target 3-pack Boba Fett as a base.

    I cut off the leg at mid-thigh, and attached the higher halves of the upper legs I took from a 25th Ann. GI JOE Torpedo figure. I also cut off Boba Fett's crotch at the waist, and replaced that with the same Torpedo crotch (that's where the ball joints come from). I saved Boba's utility belt and placed it over the Torpedo crotch. Attaching the crotch to Boba's torso while retaining articulation proved challenging, so I used magnets.

    I sculpted the details over the crotch and over the higher thighs to match those of Boba's legs.

    The helmet is a cast from StarWarsGeek customs, which I painted with help from a variety of websites documenting Boba Fett's helmet in ESB.
    I gave Boba's torso a darker shade of green, and also added a slight wash to his grey jumpsuit.

    Voilą! That's that

    Very cool! Love the Fettster! And I like that the helmet has a working viewfinder. Also great job on the battle damage, it's hard to get it right when it's that small but you nailed it!

    One thing though... the torso armor looks a little TOO green to my eye. I could be wrong and it could just be your camera flash making it look like that, who knows. But really awesome looking figure!

    Looks a bit bowlegged but other than that awesome work.
