    Blown open Gauntlet and Upside down knees!

    Has anyone caught this? Fett's left gauntlet is blown wide open in this pic along with his knees being upside down!!! I searched to see if I was double posting but couldn't find anything. I just found this interesting...

    I seen it a while ago. Andy rocks his knees that way based on that same picture.

    The knees I've seen before but I've never noticed the gauntlet being open. I guess I have always been so focused on the knees that I never saw it.

    with the gaunt open you can even see the glove detail that GBH puts on his gloves.

    If you look hard, you can also see that the greeblies on the stock of the blaster are sligtly staggered from one side to the other. ie they arent placed exactly the same from one side to the other

    Its fun too notice all of the little mistakes and things in different scenes.
    Stormtroopers with flared open calfs. The tusken raider scen where they are running to the bathat the one in the back is holding onto his mask for dear life as he almost loses it during his run. I believe even that vaders belt was upside down at one stage.
    Sadly CGI does take the majority of these momnets away :/

    Kudos Andy!! I've tried doing the upsidedown knee thing, but I just hate the way it feels!! Just doesnt seem "right" to me. Looks good on you though!!

    To be honest, I've never worn my FP knees the "correct" way, haha. I used to have MOW rubber knees until one busted on me , but FP knees feel very comfortable upside down the way they cup your kneecap.

    I think the upside down knee armour wasn´t a mistake.
    Perhaps they took an older concept picture like this one for reference of this promo picture.

    I know this is a very, very late reply. But I'm not wondering if it was one of those; " hey real quick during your lunch would you mind taking a promo pic type thing.

    I still say, if you really look at the design of the knees, it makes sense to wear them this way. Look at how knee pads of any sort (sports equipment, work safety, etc.) are shaped. The cupped side goes up to cover the knee in case the knee impacts anything.

    These do that regardless of orientation, strapped around the top of the calf with the round part projecting up, or strapped around the bottom of your thigh with the round part projecting down. Main differences are comfort and the fact that worn "upside-down" like this, one can kneel. Worn "correctly", the knees tend to get in the way of that.

    Exactly. This is what I was trying to say. You can kneel if they are upside down. That's why I think they were designed to be wore the other way. It's a question of function in my mind.
