    Sep 8, 2007, 11:16 PM - Jango Gauntlet Blades? #1

    This may be a stupid idea because it was only in the movie once but has anyone ever thought about making gauntlets that have the blades. I know it would be next to impossible to have retractable blades but just a thought.

    I remember seeing someone who produced both bladed and unbladed versions. I think it was the StarFortress place, but with their reputation being what it is I'd be hesitant to suggest them as a source. I have also never heard of anyone who has actually bought or received them from them.

    Well I plan on doing this and makeing them retractable once I get my self a pair of gauntlets. I already have it all worked out. However its going to require some hollow gauntlet. Which may be a problem for me but if I have to make my own I am definatly doing it so it will be easy to intregrate into the gauntlets. If any one really, really wants me to I will try to make a rough drawing of how I am going to go about doing it. I have two plans one is pnumatic the other spring loaded. I just havn't come to the conclusion how I am going to do it yet.

    If you take the waaaaaay back machine, there was a thread about this 3 or 4 years ago and how to make them functional, etc...

    Hmm.. I had thought awhile back how to make a working set of retractable guant blades before. I dont think it would be too hard, you just would need the blade pieces to fold in the box correctly, have them attached at a pivot points, have a stopper, some springs and a button to trigger it. The only thing with this, is it wouldnt retract inside on its own though.

    I was planning on doing a Kamino battle Jango. Since I bought an arena jet pack things kind of changed.

    That would be awesome, but difficult. I would love to see this work though.
