This is my QUICK FIX, PRE-UPGRADE, INEXPENSIVE, GOTA BE FETT this halloween solution...
Background: Purchased an Evo-Props Complete ROTJ Fett From Ebay Around March '09. I did not receive the entire costume/props and was told in not so many words: "Tough S_iT sucka". I decided on finishing the job myself this year.
The Bucket was a flimsy disaster. Resin stalk was broken, visor was broken and bucket was warped. I assume it was taken out of the mold too soon. It's fiberglass. I baked it in the oven for a few minutes to re-shape it. I Affixed an after-market T-Visor and epoxied some of the interrior to make the Bucket structually sound and presentable.
The Armor was cracked, flimsy and I'd be embarrassed to ship it out to a customer.
So I re-did my own with trash can wrapped in flashing to make a super cheap, and easy metal armor base.
After denting, sanding for cohesiveness, Masking Fluid and "Line Stripe Yellow" Rattlecan...
...after this dries and I go to work, I'll have the green layer on these to put up tomrrow. With a couple pictures of my PVC/Pine/Skill Saw knee armor. That stuff was easy to shape and cut.
The Gauntlets are coming to me this week from an Ebay member from the UK. Fiberglass molds.
There's hope for those in a tight spot to be The Fett for Halloween! Thanks for looking.
By no means is this a "Screen Accurate" set-
Raw PVC shape for knees & cut out knees. Also stage one of weathering. And re-painting of bucket to match armor.[IMG][/IMG]
