Star Wars 1941: Boba Fett by giorgiobaroni Star Wars 1941: Boba Fett by giorgiobaroni
so i had this idea in mind for quite a while..redesign all the major (and maybe not only) Star Wars characters in a 1941 look.
all about the empire in the first trilogy is related, inspired by and takes actual uniform, equipment and weapons from the German army of that period, so what if 'a long time ago' was actually 1941?

so expect to see a lot more in the coming weeks!

No one can tell me that this design isn't awesome.

I love the elements of a pilots uniform mixed in with his technology now primitive. I love how he wears that fur coat, so that you can see the white cuffs at his wrists and his helm has a steel helm at the top. 

Excellent redesign.

Great reinvisioning! Were you trying to make him female as well? (Since I saw this on Sci-Fi Female) JW.

Like the German style armor, nice work!

Ah, IDC I was just curious if that was a part of your redesign.

Looking forward to more 1940s Star Wars :la:

Wonderful! I really like what you did with the helmet, and the gun on his arm looks useful and dangerous, not to mention the panzerfaust rocket :D

wow, nice!
Excuse me if I'll make a little note about his hand weapon . It looks a little futuristic with these straight plating and square vent holes. =)
overall, it's a great redesign. ;)

ah thanks for pointing that out!
i know it might have been a little more 'blended' with the era (and i actually tried different designs before landing to this) but i thought this would have been good since most of the armors and military vehicles in ww2 were very squared and simple.
if we really want to be picky even his helmet is pretty anachronistic and probably unpractical, (it's a mix of a m38 german helmet with his classic helmet) but it had to be done for the sake of his character and strong points
