Boba Fett's Mandalorian Battle Armor

24 posts in this topic

Boba Fett's hodge podge Mandalorian armor is fine for handling your average run of the mill nerf herding smuggler and his hairy behemoth side kick. But what does Boba use when capturing larger prey? Why his Mandalorian Battle Armor!!!

Here is the final product. I added a main weapon and wrist mounted dual flame throwers.

Here you can see the hatch opened back and the controls flipped forward to allow access into the mech.

The one aspect I am very proud of, is that I can accommodate Boba Fett with his old helmet/backpack

Here you can see how well his backpack fits inside the mech cockpit.

I spent some time redesigning the jetpack to make it more solid. Before the bottom half of the pack was held by only one stud. But now it is held by the 1x4 smooth plate.

And of course the secret weapon, the mech can turn into a 4 legged tank and fire the rocket turret.

Nice mech, while I'm not usually one for that fanon stuff, this is pretty cool. Good luck.

Very well done Solscud! It's nice to see a rare mech vehicle in the SW universe, and this one looks really good with the play features and consistent Boba-ish color scheme. Great job and good luck in the contest! :thumbup:

Thanks. I figure if they can make two legged walkers, why not add limbs to it?

Actually I'm not the biggest fan of mechs, but this one looks great. I am a Boba Fett fan and I'm sure, he'd love to own something like that. There are some very nice details who made him look like a real Boba-robot. I love the jetpack.

The pictures are very good, too. Nice work!

Just read your post about mis-reading the competition deadline :grin: - Nothing like working under pressure to create good results. I really like your Mech - spot-on for Boba :thumbup:

Haha yeah I goofed. I thought the deadline was April 23. I thought to myself, "Boy, that is not a lot of time. One week? Oh well gotta see if I can scrounge for parts. " I harvested parts from a lot of my sets.

Really nice build. It seems very sturdy, and its a nice powerful armor suit.

Great job :thumbup:

Superb looking mech Solscud - you've managed integrate Boba's colour scheme and the elements of his equipment into the suit really well. I also like how the suit looks reminds me of a gorilla in it's walking tank mode, adds an extra dimension to the design. Was that intentional?

Best of luck in the contest!

Thanks.

The gorilla aesthetic was unintentional. I had built something similar to this in LDD but you lose a sense of understanding and connection with the piece until it is physically in your hands.

I did not know it could bend over and walk on all fours like I had posed it. I had an idea that it could but not until I built it, could I prove it.

However you are not the only one who noticed the Gorilla look. My fiancee said the same thing when I showed her the pictures.
