And here is the final helmet. Thanks to Asok and Chucko. Thanks so much guys! And thank you MOW, and Galactic Bounty Hunter for the jetpack! I have to say the helmet and the jetpack have been the toughest parts of the costume. For sure. haha
And a big thanks to my brother, Daniel. If I needed an extra hand, he was there. ;-)
Traffic has been a bit lighter the last couple of weeks.
cant wait to see the build finished
mhlayne, I just think its folks waiting on stuff to come in... I know I am waiting on my soft parts so I can finish up my Mando... So not much to update folks on... I love the work you've done so far... How much further do you have to go?
Yeah I agree. ;-) Well, really, just waiting on my harness and jumpsuit. I just need to weather my knees, paint the silver parts on my boots, do the harness thing, and attach my armor to the jumpsuit. ;-) Yeah not too much left. Oh I almost forgot, I am waiting on my gauntlets from Cruzer. But that shouldn't take me long to get those all assembled and painted and weathered. Yup. In the home stretch. I do however need a gauntlet rocket. I am waiting on thrax, may send him a pm and check on his progress. ;-)
Gotta ask what size is the boot you get and what size shoe you normally wear; been looking for these boots for some time now and if I ever come across some on the net didn't wanna buy a size I think should fit and don't
Awesome work on the project there; hoping mine can get underway soon
I found a pair of Kenneth Cole Reaction Boots on ebay. I normally wear size 12, but I found the boots in size 11.5. They're a bit snug, but I've worn them an I think my feet will be just fine. ;-) So yeah, have a cushion around your size. Just below or just above should work.
Balsters are totally done. I like them! ;-)
Jumpsuit (In Mail)
Jetpack beacon and Stabilizer
Pretty much everything else is done.
Just need to paint the silver on my boots.
Other than those, I think I am about done. ;-) Then it's just, attach everything and go out! Haha. Side project is a 212th clone. It's going well. I might put up a WIP thread.

Great work on those blaster bro, I had a set of similar ones and I opted for the resin casted MR from cruzer; now I have the real deal MR as well. Good luck on the clone, my first costume was clone commander bacara and now I'm working on the jango.
Sweet! I actually did not know Cruzer sold casts of the MRs! Wow. How much were they? And were they 1 piece?
Backplate is done. Beacon and stabilizer are on the the jetpack. My cruzer gauntlets are finishing drying! They are totally done except for the rocket. :-( Anyone heave one!?! I'll buy it!
I just need my harness from fettdad, and my jumpsuit is enroute. I just need to paint the boots, and....and.....I think that might be it! Yay! So close. I'll get some pics of my gauntlets here soon.
Awesome stuff mate!
Sounds like you're pretty close now, looking forward to seeing your finished suit
So when I got home from work last saturday, I found this box. The return address was from some dude in California. So I opened it up, and what did I find amongst the wrappings??!!
Haha just kidding. Our Mainecoon Pippin. ;-) Thanks so much for the gaunts and the backplate cruzer. Your stuff is insane. It is sooo awesome. I could go on and on haha. SO the gauntlets are done except for some lining/padding, and the rocket of course. I made my own harpoon from a nail, a ball point pen, and some steel pieces that I cut out. ;-) And the backplate, wow. You gotta have an awesome backplate. ;-) No the light doesn't really light up. My brother was messing around with hislaser pointer haha. So I'm now just waiting on the jetpack harness, jumpsuit, and the rest of my cruzer armor.Yeah I just broke down and got a complete set of his armor. I had to match you know? And all my steel armor is up for sale in the cargohold. I cannot wait to have this baby finished. "Almost there......it's aaawaaay!"
My 212th clone is coming along great too. Gotta update that thread too. Thanks all. Now for pics...
Lookin great Mike! I'm not sure who works faster, you or Sandy Sith! Keep it up.
Just bought my darkside gauntlet rocket. ;-) Can't wait to get it!!!!!!
Good work man, coming along very nicely. Almost there.......................lol.
Nice to see you putting up a load of pictures.
It's been a while....
Here is where we are at:
Jumpsuit from Bleahhh should arrive soon.
Cruzer's armor should arrive next week probably. (I will have a full set ;-)
My jetpack harness from Fettdad arrived this week. Wow what a nice piece of work. Excellent quality. Comfortable too.
Darkside's gauntlet rocket should arrive soon too.
Just need to stock up on some snap fasteners and elastic for attaching the armor, and some more paint....
Everything else is finished.
Paint, weather, and attach all armor
Paint, weather, and attach gauntlet rocket
Finish up the harness rig
Not too much. Just waiting on the stuff. I am guessing, in 2 to 3 weeks it will be totally done and ready for a serious photoshoot. ;-) Thanx
