    What armor parts are folks looking for the most?

    I'd like to do a few 'runs' of vacuformed parts like the knees I just did (those are shipping out this weekend).

    What do people need?

    Chest $20
    collar $10 (or 5 if ordered with the chest)
    back $25
    knees $25
    shoulders $15
    codpiece $20
    gauntlets $25 each L or R

    You can see pics of my stuff here:

    OK, now I feel dumb...

    I went back and added prices to each- remember these will be just the vacuformed pieces; no resin details like the arm rocket, knee darts, etc.

    I'd be interested in some gauntlets as well. What would the total price be for a pair with the resin parts included?

    Re: What armor parts are folks looking for the most?

    What material and what thickness is the material your working with to make your armor? Is it styrene? I actually may be interested in a right gauntlet if I can't get the one I'm working on to work with me...It keeps getting kinked up in one place as I think I should have made the hinge longer...

    I wanted to ask if you have ever thought about creating a set of Republic Commando armor out of a heavier material like ABS or even fiberglass? That's going to be my next project I think unless i go for the standard Stormtrooper attire if I can't find decent RC armor...Thoughts?

    The material is .080" styrene. The parts will come untrimmed, but the plastic is easy to work with using a exacto and/or dremel.

    ABS is a big pain to use, especially here in Florida where humidity can affect the plastic. There is a similar plastic that is more reliable called Kydex. Both ABS and Kydex are a bit more expensive though and I've found most people just don't want to spend the money.

    Fiberglass is a whole other thing- I usually sub-out the work when I have to do fiberglass.

    Is the Rebublic Commando armor similar to the regular Clone armor? I did Clonetroopers for Disney a few years ago, so I have vacform molds for all that.

    ...i thought i posted before, but i don't see it now. would there be a price break for the collar if purchased with the backplate, or just the chest? I'd like to know if i could get the set of collar and back armor for $30

    Re: What armor parts are folks looking for the most?

    There is only a price break if its with the collar because I can fit both molds on one sheet of plastic.

    You said about clone moulds... How much are those armour parts running at?

    Have you tried pre-drying it in a hot box for a day? You can make a hot box out of plywood, with a plain light bulb in the bottom as a heater.

    I've tried several things, including something like you mentioned, but I still end up with a batch of plastic that works maybe 1 out of every 4 sheets. I just decided to stick with Kydex when I need something like ABS- its more expensive, but much more reliable.

    Re: What armor parts are folks looking for the most?

    OK, I've has several people ask about clone armor- I have to take a look at all the factors (spare time being the most important) to see if I can take on accepting orders for this. I'll post something here and/or in the cargo hold when I decide.

    If I were to make the clone armor, the material would still be styrene, and the parts would still need to be trimmed, etc. The cost would probably be somewhere between $500-$700 for a set that doesn't include the helmet or boots.

    I could also of course do individual parts in needed.

    I'm wondering how many folks would be interested?

    Also,

    If there's anyone interested in Fett parts that I missed/didn't PM, let me know (please send me a PM)!

    Re: What armor parts are folks looking for the most?

    If anyone wants anything on the list, please let me know now.

    I just took on a job for some movie props- shooting begins in mid-February, so I'll likely have little free time very soon. I may have to put the offer on hold for a little while if it gets too crazy.

    Thanks!
