On Friday night I went with a group of friends to Friday the 13th. After the movie, a garrison member by the name of Adam Joyce tells me that he has a birthday present for me. We go out to his car, and he hands me a mannequin.
Woot! I've wanted to give Boba a proper display for ages. Admittedly, this means trooping in it will be more of a pain, but it's soooo worth it!
My friend Carlos came over tonight to help me hold him up / get him in position.
The support comes by way of a steel bar on a flange that's screwed into and through the base -- yeah, this goes right into my floor. Yay home ownership!
The pose is AWESOME for Boba! And perched atop his head is my new RotJ helmet, all finished now.
So Adam, I had to saw off his fingers to make the gloves fit. The glove fingers are stuffed with scrap fabric to flesh them out.
I decided that trying to put the blaster in his hands was asking for trouble -- it's way too heavy.
Overall I am ridiculously happy with how this looks.
Oh, and the ceiling fan is getting removed anyway, so that will get less scary
