    Apr 20, 2005, 9:10 AM - Guantlet Do's and Don'ts #1



    I've been wondering since I started my custom Mandalorian project, What is the guidelines or unspoken laws as far as guantlet customization goes.

    I have a rough idea of what I hope to create as far as a guantlet goes but I am unaware as to what boundries I can & can not cross when creating a pair or two.

    I plan on including the mini missle, darts and key pad like normal. The only extras I was hoping to add would be a double barrel guantlet mounted Ion cannon and a pair of retractible claws (Like the predators). I was also planning on adding a medium sized electronic screen as well (Also like the Predators).

    Is this going overboard what do ya'll think??

    I thought the whole point of a custom is that you have no boundaries but follow where your imagination leads you. If you want boundaries, do a Boba or Jango!

    Customize your heart out bro. I had planned to do some retractable claws on mine as well, but have yet to figure out a way to do it. You'll have to keep us posted as to how that goes.

    Go nuts man. Keep in mind, if you have a lot of heavy things on one side, your gauntlet will want to twist on your arm......know what I mean? the heavy part will want to swing down to the bottom. Try to balance out the weight.
