    Dec 7, 2007, 7:49 PM - Guaging interest in Cruzer Jango gauntlets #1

    Ok guys. With the help of the amazing mold-masters, Postmortem and slavefive, I should be finishing up my Jango gauntlet molds this weekend. In exactly one week I begin my 3 week winter vacation and will be in a very good position to attempt a small run of gauntlets in either cold cast or non-cc. I have already placed an order for 5 lbs. of aluminum filler from a highly recommended UK source, that is expected to arrive sometime next week along with some resin coming from within the U.S.

    If you don't mind, what I'd like to find out is approximately how much possible interest there is for a set of Jango guantlets pulled from molds of the master sculpts seen in my build-up thread (see post #123). http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=20704

    The price range I'm shooting for is somewhere between $200-$250 for a kit that includes the following:
    1. 4 halves
    2. flamethrower unit
    3. flamethrower nozzles
    4. whipcord unit
    5. right hose attachment
    6. 2 pieces of Dark-Side hinge for exposed hinge
    7. 2 pieces of Home Depot hinge for hidden hinge/pin closure
    8. Halo_1 accurate LED
    9. 2 Radio Shack toggle switches (discounted price for large quantities)
    10. All Electronics' slider switch
    11. 10' of .43" o.d. clear nylon braided blue hose (already dyed)
    I'd say my gauntlet sculpts are made to proportionately fit anyone who is 5'6"-5'11", but could fit a broader height range depending on build and/or forearm size.

    If everything goes as planned, I should have pics up of a completed set by the middle or end of next week.

    This really isn't a comittment thread at this time, but just a thread so I can get an idea of the amount of interest...if any at all.
    If by now everyones' needs have been met...I'm happy.

    Thanks,
    Cruzer (a.k.a Lorenzo)

    You'll probably get more interest than you can handle...that's a great price for some great gauntlets.

    Ditto what RevolverOcelot mentioned. I am very interested but worry they may be too small or out of proportion for my 6' 225 lbsframe. It will be close from checking the dimensions on your initial thread. Get Jango 5204 over there to try them on for me for size.

    I'll take a hit for the team and try them on for all us "big guys" out there. Whatcha think Cruzer. Let me know if you want me to model them for ya. I'm off on Sun, Mon. willing to drive, or fly depending on the day. Do you have a local municipal airport there?

    If they are to my scale I'd be interested.

    Did you really think you needed an interest thread? I mean you should of just said send money here. Or better yet, a celeberty death match style battle royal. Last so many standing get the privilage of getting there hands on some Cruzer Guantlets.

    Oh yeah interested like everyone else on the boards!
    Have a good one,

    Thanks guys.
    Yeah, sorry about doing this to some of you...but I am trying my hardest to keep the price reasonable and still offer a great product.
    This thread was more or less so I knew if I was looking at half a dozen sets, a dozen, a dozen and a half, etc....so that I had an idea of how many sets I needed to plan for material/hardware wise. There should be enough to go around for everyone who'd like a pair.
    Jango 5204, thanks, I'll let you know.

    Well, time to hit the road to finish this project.

    Thanks,
    Cruzer

    Will you be offering these again at a later time?

    If so, then I'd love to get a set later. Still way too many other parts that I need first.
