    ESB left gauntlet???

    It was brought to my attention that on the ESB left gauntlet there is no hose. Is this true? I always thought there was one hose on each arm in ESB. If there isn't, how is he feeding the flamethrower? Just thought I'd ask, since someone selling these mentioned that there was only a hose on the right gauntlet. Please let me know what the correct answer is. Thanks!

    I heard that too somewhere, but looking at this picture I have my doubts there was a hose?!

    Thanks Bobo! I'm building an ESB Fett, but haven't gotten my gauntlets completed yet, so I'm not sure. I guess I just assumed there was. I'm sure someone here will finally verify this for me.

    Nope, no hose on the left gauntlet. I can put a couple photos together later to illustrate.

    Where the heck is he hiding the fuel for his flamethrower then? Seems kinda silly. Not that I'd tell Lucas that!

    Must be one of those "it's only a movie" oversights.

    well there's three little hoses into the gaunt, maybe a supply runs up the interior of the suit?

    Or it was *gasp* never intended to be a flamethrower...

    Is there one toggle switch or two on the ESB left gaunt? Or is it a different type of switch altogether?

    No toggle switches at all on the left gauntlet.There are two switches on the top of the right gauntlet however.
