Dress Like Boba Fett With This Custom Ballistic Body Armour

A joint initiative between AR500 Armor, Heckler & Koch, and artist Ryan B. Flowers has birthed a combat-ready, ballistic armour recreation of the Mandalorian suit from Star Wars. For the uninitiated, the Mandalorian armour is the suit of choice for Star Wars’ most infamous bounty hunter, Boba Fett. The prototype armour, developed under the banner of the GalacTac Project, was revealed on the AR500 Facebook page last week.

“GalacTac Project. A special project that we have been working on with other industry leaders,” AR500 Armor wrote on its Facebook. “We hope to see everyone at SHOT 2016 Booth #6605!”

The project was undertaken by Heckler & Koch, TEA Headsets, Sog Knives & Tools, Armasight, SureFire, Wilcox Industries Corp, and Team Wendy, in partnership with AR500 Armor, while the prototype pictured was built and designed by Flowers, who is a popular figure in the airsoft community with a reputation for producing quality recreations of the Mandalorian armour.

The armour is still in the prototype stage, with no word as to whether it will be made available for sale.

Boba Fett is still rumoured to be the subject of one of the three planned Star Wars Anthology films, the first of which, Rogue One, opens in cinemas this December, with the other movie covering the early years of Han Solo.

Rumors Point to Star Wars 1313 Ressurection

Star Wars 1313 was first announced back in 2012 and was cancelled a year later. The game was intended to be an open-world adventure set in Level 1313, an underground den found in Coruscant, having confirmed after the cancellation that the lead character was indeed Boba Fett.

Star Wars 1313 will feature epic action adventure game play including exotic weaponry and gadgets that bounty hunters depend on for survival. In addition, the game will feature a combination of agile cover-based combat, epic platforming and seamless playable cinematic game play. Players will experience awe-inspiring and action-packed cinematic sequences, constantly staying engaged through the threat, pressure and tension of this criminal underworld.

StarWarsHQ and GameInformer state that Amy Henning, the lead writer of the Uncharted series, is currently working on a new Star Wars game, which they believe is actually Star Wars 1313. It would make sense since a large buzz was made when the game was first announced in 2012.

Disney and EA could profit a lot out of this, given the fact that the movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to be released this Christmas as well. However, rumours could turn out to be just rumors too; let’s hope that they’re true!
