What would Boba Fett look like if he was a warrior in the Realm of Mythoss? This custom is my answer to that question! This is my custom bounty hunter/mercenary - Jjeer Bullochh.
My goal with the design of this figure was to create a custom that would look like it belonged in the Realm of Mythoss, but I also wanted it to very clearly be Boba Fett. Thankfully, the Fett character design has so many iconic aspects to it that I had plenty of fuel to work with for my custom.

The base body on this is a Black Knight Legion Builder. The plain black of that base made for a perfect starting point and I painted the entire body with some metallic pewter-colored paint. The pauldrons on this are from a skeleton legion builder and the “Gorgo-style” head is from a Barbarian set. I painted both of those with gold and green metallics and I also painted the chest plates, loin armor, and gauntlets green and the knee armor gold to match the colors on the Fett armor design. The metallic colors all work really well together. They are distinct enough without being so bold that they clash. Finally, I added the iconic red paint to his helmet and then I went in and added some silver weathering to the entire figure to recreate the worn and damaged look of the Fett character.
The little details on this design are what I love about it the most. On his left shoulder I used a skull piece from a goblin legion axe, along with some horns from my fodder bin, to recreate the "bantha skull" that is found on Fett's shoulder armor. I wanted my version to actually have a skull strapped to the armor, so I also used a Mythic Legions belt to simulate the look of that skull being strapped in place. On his right shoulder I used a pair of ponytail pieces from a Stan Winston Realm of the Claw figure to recreate the wookie braids, and I used a cape from a Lord of the Rings Eowyn figure for the cape that hangs off Fett's shoulder. I had to trim the plastic on that cape a bit and I drilled two holes in his to allow the pauldrons to still peg into place like normal.
I used a strap around the figure's chest so I could add some gear to his back - the quiver and crossbow and the sword. The sword that sticks up directly from his back was actually a nod to the rocket that sticks up from the Fett jetpack!
I liked the way the chest belt looked, and I imaged my ML Fett having lots of gear and weapons, so I put a belt at his waist with some gear from my fodder bin, including a Spawn knife and few pieces from a Black Series Tusken Raider. I also wrapped a belt around the figure's lower leg and popped an Articulated Icons knife in there, right where the normal Fett costume has some little leg tools.
Finally, I gave my bounty hunter knight a big chunky blade which I painted to match the green from his armor and I sat back to look at what I had created. Needless to say, I was really happy with the end result! As I said, I wanted to create a design that worked alongside the rest of my ML figures and customs, but I also wanted this to be an obvious nod to the iconic character design of Boba Fett. I think I succeeded on both counts!
