    May 28, 2013, 1:45 PM - RS Prop Masters direct lineage gauntlets? #1

    Hey guys,

    I was surfing through the RS Prop site showing my little brother some TK stuff, and I noticed their Boba section. Upon clicking I found something that kind of caught my eye..

    RS Prop Masters | Boba Fett

    "Boba Fett's his highly detailed costume have been the subject of many years of research and debate across the internet, with The Dented Helmet proving to be a favorite hang out for Fett heads across the globe. This has helped long time 'Denters' RS, to produce some fantastic and ground breaking replica Boba Fett props, including their replica Jetpack, Jetpack Harness and upcoming Gauntlets, with lineage to the only know gauntlet uppers outside of the Lucas Film Archive, now in the hands of a private collector in California."

    Does this mean that RS has/had access to the castings that only Art was supposed to have access to? Or am I reading this wrong?

    These pieces aren't cast from the bucks that Art acquired. Nothing has been cast using those pieces. These are made using measurements from those two tops.

    I cant see how they have direct lineage if it is only from measurements, anything with direct lineage would be from an original piece like the Stormtrooper armour that RS do or the shells art has, it would be interesting if they did have direct lineage but like I said if its only a measurement you cant say it has direct lineage.

    Just to clarify, unless the RS guys got access to some other gauntlets that none of us know about, their gauntlets don't actually have what I would call "lineage." At C6 they asked to take detailed photos and measurements of my castings and I was more than happy to let them since we posted measurements here as well. I am sure they are going to turn our some great pieces as everything they produce seems to be very nice, but there is a difference between actual lineage and measurements.

    Aha! Thank you for the chime-in, Art! I felt way out of the loop there for a minute!

    Those measurements are definitely a blessing to the community so I'm glad we have them around for future pieces to come!

    To clear this up, the website is not our live version, but our new one under construction, it should not yet be live as information contained has not been passed as correct with our webmasters. The gauntlets are from the measurements of Art's and NOT direct castings, they are still a project in development also, as is the description. Off to finish the site
