Rocket Firing Boba Fett (back): This is the view that everyone checks out. I had to open up the figure and cut the slot out with an xacto knife. Patience in this step produces some pretty clean lines. The slider was a design of my own. Deciding what to make one from was the toughest part. You absolutely cannot tell from here but I used a red plastic electrician's wire nut to do it. And it took a lot of work to get it that way. Later on I had a mold made so I could speed up the creation process. The missile was pryed out and cleaned up for reuse here. It takes little effort to clean up the inside of the torso so the mechanism will work. As a safety precaution I left the copyright dates on the legs of all the Fetts that I made to help deter fraud from unscrupulous people. That is, of course, assuming that the buyer is aware of the fact that the actual grey prototypes do not have the dates on the legs.
