Baron Fel?
« on: April 3, 2006, 04:15 AM »
Hi Guys

I'm looking at doing a Baron Fel figure when he was still with the empire and was wondering on the following.

1. was his jumpsuit grey or black?
2. did he wear the white vest while with the empire.
3. did he have a goatee while with empire.
4. was the webbing white or black again while he was with the empire.
5. was the red stripes red or burgundy.
6. did he have kill markings on his helmet.
7. Did he waer a holster.

sorry for all the question but all the pics I've seen he looks different in and I'm not familiar with SW beyond the 6 movies and there are some great looking figures that can be custom made.

Im not a huge Expanded Universe comic book reader, though I do read the books often. They don't go into great detail about their attire and equipment, at least not to the extent at which I can remember. I assume you've seen the image on Wookieepedia (of him holding his Tie fighter pilot helmet, gray jumpsuit.) I'd say go off that picture, as it looks the post aesthetically pleasing. Im not sure if he's a frequent character in the comics, but usually with novel characters you can go crazy with artistic license as long as you have one source pic.

Maybe a more frequent comic reader can help us out here? Good luck, Ron.

Ron, I double checked, and it looks like most of his graphical representation is in the X-Wing Rogue Squadron comics, so I think that'd be the best source material. Here are some images:

And here's the webpage of some bloke who decided to make a costume based on the comic rendition, it may be helpful in some angle shots:

Hope those help

I'm looking forward to seeing him too -- sounds like he'll be great around, and very nicely detailed!

My own plans for Baron Fell were a Saga TIE pilot body and a Bail Organa head (this is obviously for Fel's facial hair look), but hemble, your approach sounds much more interesting & exciting.  :)

Thanks findswoman

here is what I hav so far

legs- saga tie fighter pilot
body- the new saga AT-AT driver
head- the new general veers at the moment that could change.
arms- the new saga AT-AT driver

I still have alot of research to do on the suit and equipment but he's 30% complete and look forward to seeing your take on him.

If it isn't too late for a suggestion, I recommend taking a look at some of the Elite Force figures that Toys R Us carries (assuming they are available in your area, as they are American figures.) They all are, well, very militaristic looking, and the ones TRU carries (Marines, Paratroopers, WWII infantry...) are well detailed.

I used the grenadier head for my Corran Horn custom earlier this week: http://ec1.images-amazon.com/images/P/B0007P6EGW.01.PT01._SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpg

But, of course, you do wonders with paint, so I'm sure the Veers would suit your needs!

Hi hyouriittai

After reading your post I went and had a look at some of the Elite force heads I have in the bits box and there are two that I like and there from the SWAT team so I'll see how they go and thanks for the suggestion much appreciated.

Hey hem, i'm really looking forward to seeing what you do with him.
let me know if you need a helmet.

I made him a long time ago, but he's still one of my favorites.
