Sweet SA boba fett-NOT MINE
« on: August 1, 2005, 04:58 AM »
On another forum, A member named "Steel Bonnet" came up with a way to use GI Joe leg and pelvis parts and put them on his VOTC boba fett so that it could be more poseable. I would LOVE to do something like this, but I wouldn't know where to start. I'm asking him how he did it exactly cause the pictures ho took aren't quite clear; and does anyone know what Joe figure he used (or if it matters at all?)

Hi all,

Another of my projects l`ve mentioned to some of you here

Finally showing off the simple & effective way to turn the VOTC Fett into the UBER Posable Boba Fett.

Photo`s first.......

VOTC Fett or is it???

Closer look at his groin area (oooh errr missus)

Helm off

Well as you can see he has the inner thigh ball section of a Joe. I found a grey set that were close to the VOTC Fett & then reworked the upper area to fit the ball inner thigh into. Then l cut the slit for the arm of both thigh balls.

The wrists & helmet & cloak are off the 300th Edition Boba. The hands are off the VOTC Fett & he`s made so he can switch forearm pods.

The head is a clone though shaved,as l see Boba Fett as someone who doesn`t really remove his helmet & all that wear is a bugger on hair.
the neck cloth is actual cloth so it creases when turned & holds.
Adds that little bit more l think.
Still working on his backpack,so that`ll be up soon.

I've seen this done before. It's an interesting technique to combine the rubber band with a star wars figure. It's not an easy thing to do but can work really well if you can hide the legs like he did with the belt.

I've this recently somewhere but can't remember where...

It's a great custom.  Not something I'd be interested in trying, but it does look great.

I want to try this really badly but am scared of screwing up.

Haha, nice CHEWIE  :P

I would definitely try doing this upgrade if I had an extra VOTC Fett lying around.  I'll give it a whirl once Hasbro rereleases that figure...

I've got two extra VOTC fetts, except one is a Jaster WIP and the other is my RP mandalorian WIP (If ever I did RP, which I really don't all that much)

RP?  What/who is that?

RP is short for roleplaying, so what I meant was that the other-other spare boba fett was for a self-custom mandalorian so to speak. kind of like what I'd like my armour to look like if ever I joined the mandalorian ranks. I'm almost done with both of them actually, so they'll be posted up in a few days. two weeks tops.
