Sorry for the tortured title!

Hereís what Iím putting together for my ANH Luke Tatooine Farmboy/Lars Homestead build.

Itís in various stages, as you can see. But itís shaping up slowly.

Overview (includes hat that still needs bleaching):


Puttees & boots prior to finishing:




Boots after modifications:

Boots before any modification:


Utility belt prior to weathering:


Correct Dutch cartridge pouch:




ANH Lightsaber hilt:


Droid caller (dome not yet installed):


Macrobinoculars in embrionic state (real eumig but replica kalimar lenses):






Real Seagull 4 and Bell & Howells:




Will update as this project moves forward.

I am not expert on that costume but it looks like a solid build. Smile

Thanks Bill and Chris.

Yes itís a Romans (when it arrives. Was on amazing offer over Christmas as a battle-worn version at a ridiculous price!). Havenít had it installed so I will probably have to bring along one of these Force FX ones.



Also have this Master Replicas hilt but I donít think Iíll risk hanging this from my belt!



The utility belt has also not yet arrived from my seller on Etsy. I requested a lot of alterations to make it more screen-accurate and I think the maker (thank the maker) has now adopted them going forward. When it arrives, I will weather it myself.

Forgot to post trousers.

Bought this pair of Leviís. (No idea what Mark Hamillís original model no. was.)

Have removed pockets and labels and am now bleaching them a little as the colour seems a bit too dark.

Your Luke ANH is shaping up nicely!

I noticed that you are doing the version with the floppy hat. I'm not sure if you are planning on making the pancho but if you are, please PM me because I have some really nice accurate fabrics/ threads I'd be happy to sell you.

I've been replicating this costume since 2000 and it's one of my personal favorites so it's nice to see that after all these years this version of Luke's outfit is getting the love it deserves. If you're not familiar with my work you can check out an earlier version of my personal Luke ANH here:

http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=77544&highlight=

Here is my final Obi-Wan ROTS Costume as well to give you an idea of my accuracy:

http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=98412

I do meticulous research and source as accurate materials as I can so again if you are doing the pancho please PM me for pictures and a price on some great fabric. Thanks!

Thanks for the endorsement, Psab. I know how much research youíve done into this costume; I appreciate the feedback.

Yes, I will definitely look to be adding the poncho in the future. I will be sure to contact you at that time. Thanks again for the offer.

Now have all of the parts for my macrobinoculars except the nearly-correct VTR connector, which is supposed to arrive soon.

In addition to the original cameras, I decided to buy some of the parts in resin so that I didnít have to destroy the originals just for the knobs, etc.

I will still use real parts for the Eumig and the Kalimar hood. I have two Eumigs, so Iíll keep one untouched. And the Kalimar hood was sold already removed from the camera.

In addition to my ďheroĒ†macrobinoculars, I now also have a ďstuntĒ set for times when little fingers might be too aggressive with expensive props! 🤣

As I said above, Iíve decided to use some resin replica parts for the hero build now as it really seems a shame to kill all those nice old cameras just for the knobs. Iíll keep the real cameras for display.



Have painted and weathered the belt clip to match that of the deleted Biggs scene:

A better mock-up (excuse the rough key):



A space battle?


ďWell there are two Banthas down there but I donít see anyóĒ
