    May 30, 2007, 5:36 PM - Can I borrow a pen..or four? #1

    This was my first run at gauntlets. I bought this Ruffkin kit from a fellow brother here and gave it a shot. I opened the box and thought, how in the world am I going to make these? I just dove in. I know a lot of Boba purists are looking at those blue LED's and screaming, but I'm a sucker for flashing lights.

    The darts are actually Cross pen refills. They cost about $8.00 and I secured them inside the gauntlet with craft foam. I know they are not exact but I'm on a budget here!

    Tell me what you think! Thanks for all of your help.

    Haha, very creative.
    I actually thought of that before too.
    They look good, and I love lights, so your Blue LED pwns.

    Looking good!
    And even Boba Fett needs some way to endorse his paychecks.

    Great job. Eric makes a very valid point by the way. They will come in handy when you do autographs.

    I like the look, but I think I would shorten them a bit.

    I had the same idea, but I used Uniball gel pens.

    Nice with the Gel pens. I wish I would have used those, probably cheaper. I like the color you used as well.
