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 [FONT=Tahoma]cohesiveness, Masking Fluid and "Line Stripe Yellow" Rattlecan... [/FONT]
[FONT=Tahoma]...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. [/FONT]
[FONT=Tahoma]The Gauntlets are coming to me this week from an Ebay member from the UK. Fiberglass molds. [/FONT]
[FONT=Tahoma]There's hope for those in a tight spot to be The Fett for Halloween! Thanks for looking. [/FONT]
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]
