    No, thats Shockwaves mind going mad trying to figure this thing out!. Man, you guys (MMM included) are on to something that I didn't think could possibly be done.WOW!. Next thing would be the grappling line!
    Not to be a pooper, what do you think the weight added to the gauntlet might be?


    p.s. More weathering for Seeker

    As for added weight, I'm figuring that just the added apparatus(including armature, blades, spring, etc.) if done in aluminum would weigh several ounces. No more than 25 or so. I think it would be considerably more with the gear assembly method, but still relatively light.

    Prototype 2, Patent Pending

    Corrections:
    All blades eject and retract in the correct direction
    All blades are properly geared to eject and retract in sync.

    Inaccuracies:
    Proportions and blades dimensions
    Layering order
    LEGOs

    Getting better....

    would it be possible to add a small motor to those with a remote or button control
    By the way those kick major butt you guys. I want some Jango gauntlets now just to have those.

    A motor is absolutely possible....small motor, 3 way switch, and a 9 volt is all you would need. Nothing like functional switches. I can only put so much time into this right now, but I think we have proven that it is possible. Props to MMM for taking the initiative. As far as my design goes, the next steps would start with knowing the available space to work with. The blades could then be accurately scaled and cut from the templates. The measurements between the pivot points could then be transfered to the body of the mechanism, replacing the black legos with a piece of aluminum or other suitable base. Gears....where to get the gears....I don't know because I haven't looked yet but the thinner the gears the better. Everything as thin as possible. I think it would also be better to mount the gears between two pieces rather than on the outside wall. With them completely enclosed, only the pivoting arms and blades would be exposed. Perhaps very thin walls could also be put outside the blades to completely encase everything. I picture the final design as looking like a simple rectangle where everything pops out. Honestly, I really had no idea what I was doing but I just visualized it really well and got to this point. Anyways, I'll work on it more (and I'll weather is more for SEEKER), but I also need to work on my armor . Feel free to use the design if you have time (just give me one if you finish it before me ). You could even bypass all the gearing and stuff and just have them independently swivel and lock into place somehow. The gearing is just cool because the entire thing functions as one unit.

    Is there really enough room in the gauntlets for those things? It would seem to me that it wouldn't really fit. Although, who am I to say? I've never had a pair of gauntlets yet. Still, I'm curious how that would work.

    O.K....this looks like a very strong reality! I'm going to sound like a pooper again...but if we go with the gear set-up, would a much larger main gear connected to smaller gears give the setup that fast WHOOSH!! Ka-CHING! kind of pop-out?(O.K...maybe not that fast.) Reason I ask is if a small motor is concealed in the guantlet how much R.P.M. do you think would be needed and was wondering about the load capability from a taller gear to a smaller gear would be too much for a small motor. I have thought of some types of small battery operated motors from the likes of small race cars to the even smaller motors that operate toothbrushes. Both ShockWaves and MMMs designs are great even though the working designs went a little over my head at times!
    Looking at both designs, I know both can work! Helms off to both of you!

    Again, sorry about sounding off as a pooper but I'm really positive about the whole thing!

    You have to remember this is a concept. As it is, as LEGOs, no it won't fit because it is to deep. However, the width and height are very close. I have GA gauntlets and I don't know for sure but I think they are a bit smaller than others. Now say I replace the LEGOs, which are about the width of a CD case, with sheet metal/aluminum which could be considerably thinner. Also, the gears are about the same width. Replace those with narrow gears. There are 6 layers total in the concept.

    <font color="black">`````````````------------------
    <font color="black">````````````|<font color="black">`````-------------------
    <font color="black">`___________|_____|_________________ _________________

    <font color="black">```-----------------------------------------<font color="black">``````````````````|
    <font color="black">```````````````````--------------------------------------------

    Hopefully that comes out right. Anyways, the dotted lines are the blades. This is why I am saying the layering is still wrong (although its really not a big deal, but not accurate in my eye). Compare the blade layering to the color coded diagram I made earlier. Optimumly, this is what I want (all squished together as much as possible)...

    __________________________________________________ _______

    (Okay those took a LONG time to do )

    In any case, the Legos cause this device to be wider than it needs to.....similar to the diagram. But if you can eliminate all that space in between and narrow the main wall that they are attached to, the total depth would be decreased significantly...enough so that it should fit inside the Gauntlet. Of course there are space limitations and possible Gauntlet modifications necessary, but with something like this you should not think of why it won't work but rather why it will. That's why I asked for measurements. With them, I can create accurate dimension and perhaps a 3D CAD model of the real thing.

    Regarding the torque of motors vs gears, I really don't know the answer. Mini motors like the ones for those TINY cars probably wont be enough. But bump that up to the motors for, say, a Mini RS4 or Kyosho Mini-Z, now thats definetely enough (probably too much) torque and speed.

    Picture of Kyosho Mini-Z to get an idea of motor size...



    Even without a motor, you could spin a gear manually (or push and pull the wide blade) and everything would pop out. With MMM's you could move the lever. A motor would be awesome, and possible, but I see it as a second phase after the mechanics are solid.

    I just have to say how impressed I am with the ideas here. I would have no clue so I am glad to see others working this one out. I too am interested in one if this does become a reality. Nice work guys!!!

    WOW! I am blown away by how far you guys have taken this!!! Here is the prob I see.... you are NEVER going to get that inside the right gaunt (the gaunt we see it coming out of in the film. However, the large rectangular laser housing on the LEFt gaunt would be a PERFECT place to store the motor AND gears as well as the retracted blades! The blades would simply fold out of a slot near the joint between the laser housing and the gauntlet body. I wish we could make it would on the right gaunt but I just don't see that happening...
  17. Feb 6, 2003, 7:19 PM - Re: Jango Gauntlet Blades - Screencaps inside #67

    Hmmm......Just out of curiousity, could we somehow get a life-size directly-overhead pic of the fantastic-uber-cool-new-age-of-Fett gauntlets currently available? A pic of each would be sufficient. Would give an idea of the parameters to work within. If the pic could show an arm, or better yet, a well-known item (I like to use a cd) that we could judge dimensions from, it would help.

    mgr you da man!

    I totally agree with the left Gauntlet being the easy one (and probably the best place to start). Now when I held this up to a Gauntlet for sizing though, I was using the right one (GA). It will not fit inside the small piece that attaches to the side, but it MAY fit inside the right Gauntlet housing itself and eject at a slight angle outward between the main Gauntlet housing and side piece.

    I'm with MMM...it really comes down to measurements.

    How much space is in the left gauntlet flamethrower case?
    How much space is in the right gauntlet beside the arm (on the outer edge)?

    LxWxH= a definite answer of how it can be done

    If anyone takes these measurements, please specify which Gauntlets you are using and take internal measurements, not external.

    Just look at my post on the first page. You'll see the uber cool gauntlet that you're talking about, in my own example of the blades. Of course, it looks like I totally over reacted with the blade scale. But you'll see just how narrow it can get by the whip cord area.

    I really need measurement, as in 50mmx150mmx300mm kind of measurements.
  22. Feb 6, 2003, 8:10 PM - Re: Jango Gauntlet Blades - Screencaps inside #72

    Yeah, or straight-on pics....not 3/4 shots.
  23. Feb 6, 2003, 8:17 PM - Re: Jango Gauntlet Blades - Screencaps inside #73

    Actually, from Mirax's pics, I think it could actually be done with a pair of the super-gauntlets. If planned correctly, I don't think any visible outer mods need to be made. The inside would really have to be chopped-up and rebuilt though.

    I have so many irons in the fire right now, that it will be a long ways down the road before I even think about attempting this. ...But I DO think it can be accomplished.

    Couldn't be more perfect with those views!!!! Thanks, SC. I'm even more convinced now. BTW, I'll say it again at the risk of repeating myself, but those new gauntlets are freaking amazing.
