Thanks bro. One final trick-I drilled the top block at an angle, so depending on the direction that I swivel the block, tilts his head foward or backward, even to the side if you want I will take shots of the costume mounted, but working on my gauntlets. I cracked one of my gauntlets trying to mount it and hide the velcro Had to make the repair and reworking the velcro a bit so it doesn't show, especially the left one near the wrist. Want to have it as complete as I can before pics.
Great work on the Jango pose
Dude! Awesome work man, I love the stances!!!
Here's my manne all suited with what I have. He stands about 6ft tall with no helmet on. I am about 5'9 so he is a bit taller than me, but wears the costume pretty good I think. When I strip it down to work on installing the jp harness, I will probably try and shorten it another inch or 2, make him just slightly taller than me. Still need to work the hands-
You are making me look bad! This rocks brother!!!
That looks great!!! Boomer, if you have a manny left in about 4 months when I finish Fett.. let me know! haha
looks fantastic, brother!!! cant wait to get after mine!
Thank you, that looks really good!!
You can buy the last ones here.
Heres my set up. i used my MR stand as the head pole. just pulled it right off the base. i felt safe doing this cause my MR is moded & has no collector value to it. the rods uncut . it goes into the neck of the mannequin so if i do want it displayed on the stand base it can still be used for that. i drilled holes in the pole to adjust the head hight so that it looks right with the helmet on.

How are you guys going to put gloves on those mannequins?
Give me more shots of it at straight on and the other side and I will recreate it!!! MUHAHAHAHAH!!!!
I am diggin all the poses you are getting out of these. Great work buddy. I can't wait to get to work on mine. Hopefully the end of next month I will get started.
That pose does rock. It would make a very cool pose indeed!
this is the only other good pose of that statue I could find.. the key points of his pose is... he is arching his back and giving the "come get some" look..... that is sooo cool..
Nice so now I have somewhere to put the cardboard armor i made for halloween!
Here is my starting point...It should be easy...
Remember that the hose is not very flexible. You might want to use medical tape instead. Just a thought brother.
Yep, you are correct. The trick is to make some joints in the fingers. I am going to cut some "v's" in the hose. Hard to describe, so I will do some pics. I saw someone do this is a thread long ago, not sure if I could find it again. So I can't take credit for the idea
Well I think I got close. What do you guys think???
I love it!!!! that's as about as good as it gets!!!
