    Collar back armor. I need help

    Ok, I'm a bit confused. Is the collar armor connected directly to the back armor via the 4 collar studs? pictures?

    hey brother, check out what i did for mine in my harness thread...

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=29943

    go down to the second set of pics, and you can see how i have the collar and backplates connected...i bought some collar studs from Serenity, aluminum, and they work perfect! the collar studs in the pics are made by me, prior to that purchase...let me know if you need any more help...

    Short answer: Yes. The collar plate slightly overlaps the back plate.
    I'll see if I can find a good pic from the archives.

    Edit--found one. This shows the overlap.

    Hey SJ, looking at the picture you posted I stumbled about those two green screws that go through the cape.

    I have seen other shots to know there´s a green metal plate below it.

    Could you tell me for what reason they did this?

    Can´t imagine what this would be good for ... ?

    Thanks for any hint. :-)

    Manuel

    Not sure, Manuel. Maybe it was reinforced for the exhibit?

    I didn't realize this as well. Looking at Fettdad's pics and Superjedi's picture, it looks to be a choking hazard. Is this the case?

    A choking hazard? Well, I dunno about you, but the armor pieces are a little too big to fit in my mouth, so I'm not really worried.



    Are you talking about how the parts fit around your neck?

    Here are two screen shots from ROTJ that show it. Well, one pic shows the back plate popped out, was during action... but you can see how it was never secured permanately.
