    Has anyone ever noticed in this pic that the flame thrower is SHOOTING A FLAME?

    I searched a bit and saw nothing mentioned about it...the pic clearly shows a flame shooting out of the flamethrower not just for looks

    Yeah apparently it caught fire to the gauntlet and they canned the idea of having a working flamer

    I've seen it mentioned somewhere that the gauntlet and jetpack were both functional....well had features anyways . I thought that someone even burned their arm slightly while wearing it.

    I read (in the making of esb book, I think) that there was a propane leak that caused the flamethrower to burn the gauntlet/arm/whatever and caused them to scrap that idea.

    All you need is a 1 way check valve and a electric fuel pump with a momentary contact switch. A fuel pump from a motorcycle works perfect if you connect a short rigid line and a jet on the end. The ignitor could be the battery powered lighter from a propane grill rigged on the same switch as the pump to start / stop both at the same time.......not that I've thought it through or anything.

    While we know they did a working jetpack and flamethrower, I'm not 100% sure that in this image is smoke or just a damaged/scratched image. Even so, I don't think that they fired up the flamethrower in those images, maybe it was just smoke, the same way as we saw on the jetpack in the Supertrooper video.

    But still, a very good catch!

    It has been confirmed it's fire, not a scratch.

    Love that Flame thrower. I have been working on that for a bit now. You'll be able to buy it with FP gauntlets.

    copypasta from COC

    FUNCTIONAL WEAPONS

    The discussion of functional weapons is prohibited. This includes working flamethrowers, wrist rockets, knee darts, rifles, sidearms, etc. Such items are extremely dangerous and this site does not endorse or promote the inclusion of such items on a replica costume. "Smoking" rocket packs are not considered a weapon and are not prohibited from being discussed.

    Seeker is talking about making the Supertrooper flamethrower unit. Not a functional flamethrower.

    And I was pointing out that the unit was working there was speculation that they ha it working at one point like the thrusters. But never noticed the pic had the flame shooting until last night looking at pics for glove material
