    Nov 22, 2014, 6:42 AM - Mannequin question....be honest ! #1

    Ok,
    So I need a mannequin for Boba and space is a bit of an issue, and I found this fella for a decent price and was wondering what you thought ?
    I'm not sure if he looks cool or like a creepy dude waiting for a lapdance ?
    Obviously I've roughly sketched an armour over the real mannequin to get an idea.

    Cheers all

    Would that not take up more space than if he was just standing up?

    kinda creepy if you ask me

    Yeah, mannequins are kind of creepy to start with, and then with a pose like that...I think I would keep looking. I'll give you points for creativity though.

    All depends on how much it is.
    I mean, this one is only a hundred bucks.

    and this one is 90 if you don't need a head

    I have had both mannequins The Captain has linked and the first one made of plastic is horrible! The second one made of fiberglass is much better in terms of weight and quality.

    I am planning on getting a mannequin for my armor when all said and done too. Thanks for suggesting ebay guys, didn't even think to look on there. Have to agree with everyone else though, it is a little creepy.

    Yeah that pose just doesn't scream 'FETT' to me at all. Not the pose I would choose for a mannequin for Fett. Good luck with your search!

    I had to revisit this thread as I am now on the hunt for a mannequin. Because it will service 3 costumes (Fett, Boushh TK), I would like it to be articulated since each character will have a different pose. I'm going to rotate through the costumes throughout the year and when i'm on 501st troops.

    I came across this gem and had to share it.

    Here is an article on a Halo guy that does the tape mannequin but with foam and plywood. I don't see how he made it articulate though...which is something i'm interested in.
