    Almost there!

    I'll take all the feedback you guys have.

    Let me know how I can make it better!

    Thanks,
    Cruzer

    Looks good. But how on Earth do you not fall over when doing those poses? If I try and do something like that, my leg armor would snap off and or I'd lose my balance.

    I see you found a cape. Got some temporary gauntlets? Are the gloves the right color? But hey, it looks good!

    That looks really awesome, Cruzer!! Although I always thought his armor looked more like a medium to dark-ish blue silver. It might be the flash though.

    Looks really great!

    Re: Almost there!

    Thanks guys. Yeah I've got to loose the blue gloves for some black ones as soon as I can get up to Nordstrom's Rack. And your right, the R&B Pewter just isn't dark enough so I'm thinking of trying a custom mixture of Pewter, Black, and maybe some Sapphire blue to try and get the same effect seen in the comic book.

    I appreciate the feedback guys,
    Cruzer

    That's actually the exact combination of R&B I was thinking of when looking at the pictures. I just didn't know how well R&B actually mixed. Maybe 60% pewter and 20% for black and sapphire?

    And JangoUri, this Jango is from the comics "Jango Fett: Open Seasons."

    Re: Almost there!

    Sweet armor man and ditching the blue gloves for a set of black would be very nice. I was just wondering about your visor-- has it taken a beating (like been scratched a lot??)

    And the cape is a nice add-on there... Maybe put a lighter to it and burn some of it? That would be an extra nice touch. Rough it up.

    By the way, making the shoulder armor red was a great idea.

    I'd really like to see your costume once you make it even better!

    If the Nordstorm Rack by you is anything like the one down here in San Diego, they don't have any gloves yet. I just checked today (even though I already have some gloves, I'm always looking out for my fellow brethren).

    Re: Almost there!

    Thanks guys. I'm glad you all approve. I also need to remember to shoot some black paint into the insides of the thruster nozzles.

    I know the pics aren't as good as if Brak's were shooting them, but they'll work to show me what I need to fix.

    We had a little fun trying to replicate poses from the comic so here's one for you, but no matter what I couldn't get my elbows to bend that much.

    Thanks guys,
    Cruzer

    Re: Almost there!

    *Click and save* That pose is awesome. Is that a finger I see holding up the cape?

    Do the one where he's jumping out the Governor's window...I'm sure you'll fall down then.

    Re: Almost there!

    Yeah it's a finger

    Yeah the pose out the govenor's window would be cool as hell, but there'd only be one take on that one due to the whole suit being in fifty pieces after that shot.

    I removed the pic because I just look too dorky. My wife just shook her head when she saw it.

    I'll put it back up.uke

    That armor looks great, you did a great job. I really love the way you did the red. The pic of you running looks awesome I can almost hear that sound effect from the 6 million dollar man.....almost.

    Re: Almost there!

    Yeah, when the flash hits that visor just right it makes it look like crap!

    Hey JimmyBuffet, some of those poses where hard as heck to hold. We also replicated a few of Seeker's poses and I have no idea how he held some of them so perfectly.

    Jango Newbie, yeah they're loaners until I can find some better ones (oh Fettpride!)

    Thanks Foxbattkllr, good to know, I'll keep my eye out.

    Thanks Seeker and Oz, just trying to catch up with your dust guys!


    It's super cruzer!!
