    Not to mention that the area where that metal bar goes across. That area has no possibly hay of hiding anything inside, are area between it and the gauntlet is like 1 mm!

    Great pictures.

    This is how I see the blades in the right gauntlet.

    Hey Fellas. I don't know if any of you have looked but on theproppalace they say they have "deluxe gauntlets" that have "retractable metal blades." IF someone has 300 bones to drop on a set of these gauntlets we can figure out a possible solution to the engineering problem we are facing. Or if anyone knows how to get a hold of these guys to find out if they actually do retract or if its just a line that would be helpful too. Anyhow I just thought I'd drop off that information. I'm not really an engineer but I'm studying to be one and I've enjoyed studying these designs. So heres to developing a prototype.

    Helmets off to you guys for figuring out how-to from a bunch of pics and a few seconds screen time!!

    Has anybody had any luck getting one to work yet?

    The extent of my time that I put into this ended with my last post in this thread. Without having a set of gauntlets to work with, and not being ready to make mine yet, I figured I had gone as far as I wanted to.

    I have tossed the concept around in my head on occasion while driving on Southern California's freeways , but have yet to go any farther than the wooden mock-up from the very first day. I haven't canned the project, just postponed it until I am at that stage of my outfett. I will most definitely keep the board apprised of any developments.

    I wonder if TPP didn't jack our designs. Not that they're very technologically advanced as far as designs go, but just that no interest seemed present in this feature until Brak's posted here and we tossed some ideas around. Given the time elapsed, allowing for R&D, the timeframe suggests a bit of "borrowing" of our initial ideas . We'll see....

    Ya well see I guess if they actually do exist. A little thanks our way would sure be nice . I'm in the same boat. I have very limited time and and trying to work on my own armor first when I have the time. Also, my Gauntlets are smaller than those really accurate ones, so they wouldn't make for the best model. A lot of my friends have told me to pursue finishing this, but it's just a matter of time. At least hopefully all of our R&D will keep people inspired, that's really what it's all about.

    If there weren't already a lot up, I would say that this thread warrants an offical sticky.

    Speaking of Jango gaunt gadgets, has anyone thought of using a CO2 canister to propel the grappeling hook? It might work.

    Yes, quite. Safety is not my concern. Coolness is.

    Hey, why do the blades have to be exclusive to Jango, who's to say Boba doesnt have them. Just because he never used them in the movies doesnt mean anything. I think boba's got almost everything Jango does.

    Those blades are looking awesome by the way.

    The best way to find out would be to look inside the Sarlaac for scarring

    I am working on some jango style blades for my gauntlets. What do you guys think?

    I think it's a great idea!
    If only they could be spring loaded.

    Well, no springs but I came up with a way to attach them without making it permanent. I put two little magnets I believe they are natural earth magnets. Vary powerful. I put two in the side piece that holds the dart. Then i put two on the blades witch i have glued a baking on.

    That's pretty neat! You may be one of the first or the first to sport the blades. We went over this on a similar topic a while back on how to make them retract but that went ZOOM over my head. Still, whether they retract or not, it's kickin! The option to add or remove them when needed is a good idea as the movie version was CGI stuff. Thanks for sharing and show us when it's all done!

    The pics of my set is still working for me. You can't see them thunderbolt885? I have them painted now. I will try to get some pics up soon.

    ouch I moved hosts and forgot about all these pictures...damn that was a lot of dev time too. Maybe I can find them again for someone because the measurements were exact for retraction.
