    Hey guys,

    Here are the final master models for the new jedi gauntlets..I've shortened the lengths about 5/8" and widened both wrist diameters a bit as compared to my latest ESB's..Will be pouring the molds as soon as my rocket arrives from the metal shop. I'm very pleased with the overall look and scale..I'm now excepting pre-paid orders..please pm for details. Thanks for your patience, Christian.

    Details,

    Left gauntlet:
    length 9.750
    rear opening 4.0 x 4.0
    front opening 3.0 x 2.250

    Right gauntlet:
    length 8.750
    rear opening 4.0 x 4.0
    front opening 3.0 x 2.250

    They do look really nice, but why is the right one not quite as crisp and defined as the left one?

    Because the real one is believed to have one fiberglass gaunt (the sharp one) and one vacu-formed one (the soft one). Or at least it USED to be believed that was the case. Not sure if public opinion has changed on that.

    Webchief,

    I'd agree with that theory...I had an ole' worn out bar of soap in mind while making the left gauntlet model

    Thanks Ripcode...and to everyone thank you !

    I'm anxious to get the molds completed and get a few props pulled

    Some collectors out there have been very, very patient with me in delivering the new versions...I want to especially thank them as well

    If any of you guys out there need a set before Halloween please don't wait. My workload is rapidly building
