Yeah, I have to agree, I don't think there is anything wrong going on at all. Your friend came up with a cool real costume idea and Les liked it enough to recreate it in 1/6 scale. Cool. He said at the start it came from a reference pic and never claimed to have created the concept or anything, and he isn't selling copies of it, so no harm. Besides, if he's going to catch heat for making a copy of her armour then she'd have to catch heat for making a variation of a copyrighted character in the first place.

Can't we all just get along emoticon lol



She's a part of a costume club call Mando Mercs and they are all custom mandos as in the costume is based on the same armor as you see on Boba and Jango but you come up with your own ideas of colors and accessories to make it your own. The club is not Lucasfilms club but they have the blessings of doing this club and it's worldwide for the most part.
So she can't get heat, for doing the same armor as Boba as she is protected under that and yes she is honored but just would like of someone contacting her and say hey I love your costume and it inspired me to make a figure of it. Also her other complaint is that it was put on a male figure instead of a girl's.
For I'm not saying Les in trouble as in OMg lawsuit trouble or anything like that as I mentioned to him it just would have been nice by giving her a heads up or respect to have contacted her and say your costume is awesome and inspired me to do a figure that I won't be selling. For that's all I was trying to get at. For I know I would like to know that my costume inspired someone that they like it that much. I'm sure some of you might like to hear it if yours did.

Well, to be fair. He probably didnt know how to contact her.

I'm sure he has no problem in telling her "hey, Im inspired by your mando armor design and I customise a 1/6 figure out of it." if he knew how to contact her.

Perhaps u may even link them up and let les tell her personally?
