    Looks pretty good to me still...hopefully the actual product will look half that good.

    Rubies will probably make the belt yellow, and make absolutely sure that it will not fit any adult over 5'5".

    I *loathe* rubies...In fact Im kicking myself for buying those Jango Fett blasters.

    I agree. I got the JF helmet and was prefectly pleased with the shape.. but the color was ALL wrong. So maybe it will look great, shape wise, but you might want to think about altering. Who knows, maybe all you'll need is leather dye.

    Keep in mind, the helmet looked fantastic in the photo on EE.
    The actual product looked nothing like what they had on their website!

    Is it me or do the holsters look way too short?
    I know the barrels on the blasters are shorter than the real ones, but those holsters look kinda small.

    Hey OPPI!

    You can't just say you got a better one and not tell me where you got it and how much it was.

    PM me please!

    Re: Rubies Holster

    I just got my blasters the other day. They need some work but aren't that bad. There was a thread on how to modify them. That holster doesn't look bad either. We'll see.

    Re: Rubies Holster

    Wll, I just got the rubies holster set. The color is nothing like the entertainment earth pic. There is also no buckle in the back, it is velcro. I guess I should know what to expect for 23 bucks. I am going to try to make it work though because I dont have the cashola for the good one.

    Re: Rubies Holster

    Wow, where did you get it? Can you take some pics? And Im not totally sure, but i think a velcro closure is accurate, thats how the ammo belt is at least. And from what i can judge by the size of the blasters and the ones i have, the proportions seem to be pretty good, as far as size and length goes.

    Re: Rubies Holster

    The real gun belt uses a buckle closure, but, you can't see it anyway since it is under the braided leather belt.

    This is true. My belts are, in this order: gun belt (buckle on back), braided leather (velcro), ammo pouch (velcro).

    Re: Rubies Holster

    I would realy like some pics of the holster, im prolly gonna depend on this one as well because of price. Could it be painted or at least used for templates?

    <img src=http://www.entertainmentearth.com/images//AUTOIMAGES/RU17098LG.jpg>

    The size looks alright here, that's an adult wearing it.

    Re: Rubies Holster

    OK, heres a little description of the holsters I recieved. They are made from a hard latex? I think. If they had left the color alone, they would be alright. But in the wisdom that is rubys, some a$$hole thought it would be a good idea to brush some beige paint all over it for what I am assuming to be a more realistic look. As far as taking them apart to use for a template, I guess it is possible except the holster itself is one piece and most of the belts are glued. The size is for an adult

    For a better pic try http://www.johnsonsmith.com/
    Type in jango fett in the search

    Hope this helps,

    Re: Rubies Holster

    Kylash, yes that is where i picked mine up. I actually bought the costume too! When it came I was so disgusted"uke" that I sent it back and told my wife I was going to make one for my son and I. I searched the web, found this oasis(tdh) and the rest is history.

    Merged: Merged: What kind of paint can I use to paint thick latex?

    I just got the new rubies holster and it is made out of thick latex. What kind of paint can use so that it does not melt it? I tried spray primer on the back but it seems to have melted it and is still sticky and does not want to not want to fully cure.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Got through it with my own account url, just copied your member number.

    Looks pretty damn nice for Rubies, though the folded lines from being in a package are kinda annoying.

    Merged: Merged: Re: What kind of paint can I use to paint thick latex?

    Go to your local hobby shop and ask. There is a special kind of paint that you need to paint on latex, or it won't take. It's a latex based paint, it's the same kind you'd use if you were making prosthetics. I just can't remember what it is. But any decent hobby shop can tell you. Usually the smaller ones. The big chain shops usually employ anyone regardless of their knowledge, so they may not be able to help.
