I'm in the final stages of my armor with assembly,and acquisition.I've begun alot of picture research with regard to the ESB gauntlets,to try and make them as accurate as I can.
The right gauntlet can be easily seen in the Action Figure archive for all pertinent details for replication.
However the left gauntlet can be seen in many different shots,BUT the *3* long rods of varrying length can be seen,but not from a good side angle.I've gotten it down to where I can clearly see the dental expander,the calc. pad,the rocket colors,although it's design seems a bit different from ROTJ,but I can't confirm it.AND protruding from the *3* long rods are 3 wires that attach to each one at the rear of them,and tuck into the gauntlet via. access hole.The top wire is WHITE,the middle wire is RED,the bottom wire is BLACK.The rods seem to be attached with a minimum of *2* brackets,one at the mid-point,and one at the rear.They are aluminum,but there seems to be something else around the mid-point that is attached to the gauntlet itself,and it/they are black.
***What is it,or what could it be????
The color of the rods varries also.There is a neon orange,black,and silver theme to each of them,which I have my theories on how it looks.All three rods look like they are 1/4" aluminum rods with parts slid down onto them,and painted inbetween.This is how I intend on replicating mine.
***Does anyone have any other theories as to the color scheme?
I know that I'm not alone in my quest to replicate an accurate ESB costume currently so perhaps some others who are doing so might be able to share any of their discoveries,or help fine tune some of mine.
