    The only major difference between the left gauntlet in some of the stills (or scenes) is that big gray scratch at the base of the joint section; I did not saw other noticeable differences, so I say is the same gauntlet with that reparation during the filming.
    I quote myself just to show that there are no noticeable differences between the gauntlets, except the 'repair' damage and its surrounding area:

    Thanks guys. I found that the weight of the blaster had caused the arms to sag down a little, so I positioned them higher again. This seems to be a drawback to using a foam mannequin. Everything else about it works great, just the weight of the gauntlets and the blaster are a little problem.



    Here's where I'm at with the flamethrower. I think it's coming along nicely and will have only cost me about $5 when I'm done. There's a whole lot of guesswork going on here. I can give some details on how I'm making it if anyone is interested.

    Nice work, Matty! Are you using wood for all the block shapes?

    Thanks man. The "piano key" blocks are wood but everything else is plastic. Got your pm.

    Got a little more work done on the back plates. I was able to get the bends in the bottom one. It's going to need a lot of detailing and weathering, but you guys get the idea.



    Here's a shot before I really started putting it together.

    Big thanks to Necronaut for kindly sending me some of his leftover flamethrower bits. What a great guy. These resin pieces are making my life easier, and for that I am very thankful.
    Here's where I'm at tonight. I think I almost have this thing done. I'm working off of what I can make out in reference photos, not trying to emulate any of the kit flamethrowers.

    Thanks guys. This is what I ended up with. It was a lot of work, but I think it came out fine. I didn't work from any plans or anything, just made it up as I went.

    Got this bad boy all mounted up. You pretty much have to get down on the floor to even see it, but what the hell. We know it's there.

    I just read this entire thread, and am blown away by the epic scratch builds and mods put into this display. You should get out and troop it sometime, and show off all your hard work!

    Haha, thanks a lot guys. Epic scratch builds and mods...I like that.

    And I love the stuff this RKD guy makes...although he sold me ROTJ gauntlets and I had to fix 'em.

    Going to start work on the holster I got from Kcr7pr. This is going to need a lot of smoothing and filling. A lot.






    I would like to cut the knife pocket off, but because of the way these are molded it's impossible. You would end up with just a big whole in the front of the holster. Not a big deal, just would have been cool to cut it off.

    So I found an old pic of my helmet when I first started working on it. I'm not actually done yet, still need to install the calc board and the visor (just duct taped in). The rangefinder is just a big hunk of resin, but I tried to add some detail with led's and a hand shaped plexiglass lens. I'm also missing some details like the light green marks under the killstripes. This was all painted by eye, no templates or stencils. One of these days I'll fix some of the stuff that doesn't look quite right and finish it up.

    Thank you everyone. I got the holster just about done and wanted to share it.



    I tried to replicate the look of a real one as much as I could. I'll probably beat it up a little more as well and notch out the trigger area when I get a sidearm.
