Group Project #13 - Jango Fett
« on: June 19, 2006, 10:23 AM »
Here is our latest group project. The idea behind this one is to make your totally pimped out ultimate version of Jango Fett. Get creative with this one. Add whatever accessories you want to make the ultimate version of Jango. Give him flame throwers. Give him grappling hooks. Give him a bounty capture claw and missile rack (like hasbro would do). Just make sure he is easily recognizable as Jango.

As for all group projects, please make sure to post plenty of reference pictures and lots of work in progress shots. Please do not submit pictures of figures that you made before this project started unless they are examples of a certain technique or example of something you are trying to duplicate. This is NOT a casting call for old figures.

Final figures will be due on July 31st and will be included in the group project entry thread. Let's get cracking.

Awesome, I am glad that we are doing this... he's such a cool character yet never got the love that he deserves from Hasbro.

Very cool indeed!  Could you by any chance supply a reference picture of Jango in his apartment clothes?  :D

I'm not sure how I am going to go about this... but I am leaning towards using a VOTC Fett as the base for it.

Dremel the helmet from the Kamino escape jango a bit so it'll fit over the Slave 1 Pilot head (or take an EVO clone head :p) on the VOTC body, or just boil/pop the final battle legs onto the VOTC body...


OR... (and this is REALLY original)



Repaint the Titanium Boba! LOL ;D

here is some work in progresson the SA jango. it is still in the beginning stages and needs to be cleaned up a bit but i think that so far it looks really cool. the legs, in my opinion are going to be the hardest part of the articulation process due to the armor and holsters. i had to cut the pegs down on the inside of the legs to straighten them out. i will probably put a pin in the leg to get some articulation, otherwise i have to glue it in. let me know what you guys think and if you have any suggestions
parts used:
kamino thighs
geonosis arena battle lower legs
boba fett feet

brisk,
i will most likely use a kamino jango upper body and just add some articulation to the elbows and wrists using some of the newer GI Joe parts.
thanks, ryan.

Well, I've got a sneek preview Jango sitting in my fodder bag that I will be cutting off his armor. Guess what I'm going to use for a body? ??? I also have a head from my Commander Cody that I will be making a cast of.

Looking forward to it Phurby :).  I'm thinking Pilot legs w/added articulation, a VOTC fett body, and I'm kinda at a loss on the head, I can't decide between pilot head, kamino escape head, and Cody head.
