A body armor manufacturer recently showed the first look at a new design inspired by Star Wars character Boba Fett.

Fett is a bounty hunter that features in several Star Wars movies, as well as some of the books.

Though he didn’t have a whole lot of screentime in the movies he was in, Fett became such a celebrated character that one of the upcoming spinoffs is focusing on his backstory. 

AR500 Armor, which has developed the new armor, said that it’s a special project called “GalacTac.”

The team has been working with “other industry leaders” including SureFire, Team Wendy Armasight, and TEA Headseats, the company added.

The company will be showing the armor in person at their booth at The Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show from Jan. 19.

The four-day event is scheduled to take place in Las Vegas. 

Prices for the armor are as yet unclear, but artist Ryan Flowers—who is involved in the design—is selling similar airsoft armor for $325 and up on his website.
