    I don't know why I didn't think to list them above, but I can easily do a set of gauntlets that doesn't include the ROTJ style flamethrower housing for $55.

    PM sent.

    What are the lengths on the gauntlets. They look great.

    Actually the gauntlets shown in the photo are being upgraded, and will be even nicer. Everyone who has ordered so far will be getting the new better gauntlets, and I will try to get a pic up of them this weekend if possible. I have a little more fine tuning to do to the molds first.

    PM sent as far as measurements.

    Please add me to the list for gauntlets – the 5-piece set - no flame thrower please. I am making the Super Trooper version on a 3D printer...
    DO you sell the left gauntlet top rocket piece? Or do you refer customers to a maker? I will likely buy a little bit here and there from you in the coming month... so I can be like MightyTank! He went from a TD, to a nearly perfect Super Trooper in a matter of days. I have to play catch up. Thanks!!!

    Added you whitecommando.

    I will hopefully soon be offering an accessory package for the gauntlets with pretty much all the add on pieces needed (including the rocket you asked about) to finish them out. I'm waiting on my masters to arrive from the prototyper, and then can get some casts made and some pics up.

    I plan to keep these available for the foreseeable future.

    I do not currently offer a back plate, but it along with another item or two are in the pipeline.

    Just a heads up to everyone. The local weather forecasters are predicting a pretty nasty storm coming in Monday evening through Wednesday that could possibly bring between one to one and a half inches of ice to my area. If that happens I may very well lose power, thus no internet. If you leave a message here, or PM me during that time and don't get a quick response from me, that is the reason. I will get back with you as soon as possible.

    Thanks,
    Rimshot

    Hey everyone,

    Just wanted to update that the storm is finally passed. We ended up getting about an inch of ice here plus some snow. My county has been under a travel warning for the past few days, with only emergency vehicles allowed on the roads. They have finally downgraded that a bit today to allow people to travel to/from work, but other travel is still restricted.

    Needless to say that put me behind a bit on vacuuforming. I'm hoping they finally get the roads cleared enough to start allowing travel by the weekend. It is supposed to be in the low 30's, which is warm enough for me to be able to get some forming done. I should be able to crank out all the vacform parts of everyone's orders this weekend.

    I will also be able to get most of the resin cast goodies formed for those who got the free bonus items. I am still waiting on the gauntlet rocket body that my cousin is turning on a lathe for me. He is a woodworking/furniture design instructor at a nearby college, and with the school being closed due to weather he hasnt had access to the shop. He should have it finished and to me soon, and I can get the rest of the rocket assembled and molded as well.

    I hate to start off my first sale thread after coming back with a delay like this, but I guess I didn't time things well with mother nature

    I am trying to keep open communication this time around though, so no one is left wondering what is going on.

    Thanks everyone for your patience.

    Hey all,

    Ive got a good part of the forming done for current orders. I've got a little more to finish up over the next couple days, and then currently paid orders should start shipping later this week! I will keep everyone updated when packages start heading out the door.

    Thanks,
