Newest project - 1/6 Boba Fett Mythos Custom.
I wanted to sell my old Sideshow Boba Fett figure, but since there's been quite a few better 1/6 Fett figures released lately, I decided to make mine stand out from the crowd by customising it, with Sideshow's Mythos statue as inspiration.
It's not going to be an exact recreation of the Mythos design, rather a figure made with the same idea behind it. Meaning - that of a Boba Fett "beyond the movies", shown during some undescribed mission from the character's past. With slightly different gear than his movie loadout, and armour shown with a different stage of weathering.
First up is the helmet. The visor still needs some cleaning and glossing up, but other than that it's pretty much finished. Not having to be a slave to the exact pattern of scratches and damage seen on the movie armour, I could really go to town with weathering for a realistic finish. And though the Dentedhelmet.com purists will instantly notice a "non-canon" mosaic of patterns, the overall look and feel still fits very well with movie Boba. And it makes total sense, since it's unreasonable to think Fett's armour would look exactly the same during all of his deployments.
I plan to repaint all of his gear and armour this way (with some bits having complete colour scheme changes), give him more weapons and some additional fabric elements to his costume.
Note: bear in mind that the following photos have their colour filtering slightly too much on the red side, so it's not 100% representative of the colours in hand.
Here's the original Sideshow helmet for comparison:
