Mirdala Ad'Goran... Ya I don't know that I'm going as far to be called "HEAVY" but heavier yes.

And just to throw a back story in there... notice the blue light on the back of the jump pack. That's a shield generator from a DESTROYER droid. I modified a jet pack by taking out the flight portion of it, replacing it with a smaller system for jump propulsion and integrated the shield generator... Why I'm called DESTROYER.

That's my nerd! lol

Love the new addition  ;) . To me, a mando isn't complete without the jetpack  ;D . i also like the idea of the shield generator. Jango and Boba could've learnt from that  :laugh: .

I really love the look of your kit! 8) Everything from head to toe is just so well done! I'm gonna have to show my husband your kit and it's subtle nod to the military, it might just help me get him to agree to finally get kitted up.

Oh by the way, I loved this comment, made me bust out laughing! :laugh:
I'm really going to try and be there.. I may have to pimp myself out to get the money for it. lol

First off, LOVE the kit!  Looks really great, all ties together well, and I really like the tribute.  :)

Second, where'd you get that kit for your gaunts?  LOVE them!!  I might look into getting those at some point, I like them so much!

Third... that Kroenen costume is BOSS.

Kandosii, ner vod!

The gauntlets are Man Of War off of ebay. I used a modified Jango blaster instead of the usual Boba Fett flame thrower.

Thanks for the complements.

Hey, this is themed after the U.S. Army, isn't it? What rank is the kit, then? Lieutenant? If so... Lt. Daaaaaan, ice cream!

Love Forrest Gump.  :)

I'm a former US Army Combat Engineer so big /salute to you for doing this! I know it means a lot to everyone who has served or still serving!

One question....how did you mount your JP? Not sure what make yours is. Mine is a Jango Arena pack from BFUK.

Thanks! and again...great rig!

Thank you so much that honors me to hear that people have liked my work. The Jetpack is a Jango arena from Man Of War off of ebay. Really is well built. I have it bolted directly onto my back plate and sewn straps to the inside of my vest that snap onto straps that are hooked to the hips of my pants (keeps the weight of the pack from pulling it back)
