    Not many pics to show, but this is where I am right now. I ordered a mannequin last week and it came tuesday. It was too scrawny so I ended up padding his biceps and triceps, chest, and upper legs.

    So originally it looked like this:


    after the padding it looks like this:







    I'm REALLY happy with the way it's coming along so far. I've been slowly putting it together over 14 months. I have boots on the way (they are just stand-ins until I can find the ones I really want) and I need to modify the sith armor gloves to have the appropriate look. I'd like to replace the chestbox lights and a few other pieces, but this is where I am now. Hope you guys are as happy with it as I am so far!

    Matt, you should be really proud, my friend!

    That is one stunningly awesome ROTS Darth Vader. And your padding work on the mannequin really brings things to life!! Incredible!!!

    I can also see from the sides of your pics that you've got quite the Hasbro STAR WARS collection going on as well. Kudos, pal, and Bra-VO!!!

    Can't wait to see this suit completed!
