What? you think it needs more?!? I think it looks freaking awesome!!!
Discussion on 2nd set of trash can armor within the Expanded Universe Bounty Hunters forum, part of the Star Wars Universe category; What? you think it needs more?!? I think it looks
What? you think it needs more?!? I think it looks freaking awesome!!!
i totally agree! but i did this sketch of a few of my ideas anyway. You dont have to use anything at all. i put some blood stains on to give you some ideas for stains and spots to get it on
p.s. i think your bucket is great the way it is
I love the light Adonian! A: where you get it? B: how'd you attach it?
The blod spatters are kic***s. Is that paint on your visor? How you getting that off?
haven't installed visor yet, thank goodness The light was an energiser light I got from the Wal, I paid 11 or so for it, it has the visor clip (hat visor) on it, so I left an opening on the left ear to slide it on and off so later I can use a different setup if I find something better, but that bad boy is bright!
Next I need to get another one of those acrylic photo frames to cut for the visor, I got the blue mirror tint in the mail, so almost ready for the finishing touches on the bucket, then really get down to work on the soft parts.
I got an idea for the boots... I have an angular trash can that I can cut to cover the laces like a hard boot cover, I'll get a pic posted soon.
Yeah I didn't think about my boots when I cut out my shin guards, but as they are a bit on the big size, I'm thinking that they will become thigh plates, and I'll make something else to cover my combat boots.
Ok I guess that paint is on the back of the helmet, that's a relief! I've been bouncing around ideas for how do do a light on my bucket (I've always loved that about the RC buckets) and I might just do it that way, we'll see what I can find/rig.
It looks good man!
yeah Ado'buir I agree that u must have a gift for your Cyar'ika on Christmas... as for the mando... the only thing I ask u use from my sketch is the blood mark on the bucket... it's a trophy from your first kill, done in the Predator fasion but I like it enough I'm going to add it to my bucket! I may not do it in blood, but I'm going to carve it into the top right side of the helmet above the Jaig Eyes.
Well since I've already completely jack Ad'ika's thread...
Aden: Thanks! I'll look into that!
Adonian: I'm not planning on putting lights in my vizor (or anywhere on my armor for that matter) since I'me going for stealth, I just want the light on the side for tactical purposes, blinding enemies, finding blown of limbs etc.
Ok, another very minor update:
Mini-Mando bucket 85% size got slathered in resin inside and out, and the dome and cheek's got a nice coat of Bondo.
This one will be made into a display piece for my oldest.
I will need to make a 90% bucket to fit my twins and a 95% for my oldest.
hey adonian u can always use that mini-bucket as a display version of your fullsize... u know like those gentle giant mini busts
lol I want a display version of my bucket! I have to get it first tho...lol A'd'ika's workin' hard trying to get me to fix up a final sketch to work from... I've just been so busy
Kal'ika: A light on the gaunt will be interesting, I look forward to seeing how you do that.
Adonian: Sweet! I'm jealous of your kid, I want a mando helmet for my room......on second thought as much as Nomad has gotten into this I don't think she'd go for that...maybe in the man cave or the work shop!
I still have the first SAZ bucket as a display, I cant wait to get this little one finished for my kid, he's excited.
do we get to see what it looks like or do we have to wait until its done
Looking good vod like the mini size i need to do that.
haha you should also tell us what his strange idea is when he tell you. I could use a good laugh
yeah vod whats the strange ideas lol
I dont think hes asked yet vod
haven't asked yet , were all tired, just got back from Disneyland.
I was thinking about using this as my colapsable (?SP) sniper rifle:
Does anyone know where I can get an airsoft version of this bad boy...
I would love to have the real thing, but $6,300.00 isn't just layin around ya' know.
well Ori'ad... I know that the Beretta Storm is not actually collapsible! lol but... I do know that there are no Airsoft copies of that particular barrett... and yeah I know the MSRP on that thing is outrageous. I know that they have the M82A1 which is the slightly larger, box mag fed version on a few websites like Airsoftgi.com and Airsoftglobal.com. However, they are somewhat expensive as well, I have seen some versions that are as cheap as $1K and some as expensive as the real steel head thumpers. OpsGear Tactical has a nice upgrade kit for paintball markers that strongly resembles the Barrett 82A1, I don't recall the actual price of that kit but it wasn't much and if all u want is the look, then it might be worthwhile.
how do I rename this thread?
yeah tell me about it! I have a hard time not falling over when I see the $300 pricetag of the lower cost (higher grade) models like the G&G M4s. BTW... just for reference... those Beretta Storm Carbines are sooo sweet. They are light but not too light, they are perfectly balanced and I have yet to find one that can't hold a good group (only shot 3 of them tho). Nice handling gun; very fast handling, accurate and generally FUN (and cheap, relative to an AR15) to shoot!!! he he
your kidding right, airsofts are running that much now? thats insane
the closer the airsoft gets to real guns the more expensive they get!
I need to rename this thread, anyone know how?
ive actually been trying to figure that out
Soft parts, a lot of buying will be going on
Look at this POS I saw on ebay... It looks like someone did a cast off the Rubies.
Heh Pyrat props is a suitable name
Wow, I didn't even notice that.
Next bucket idea:
I want to put a set of 3d teeth in the cheek bone, but not as dumb and square looking as my poor drawing.
I want to put some sort of runes all the way around the "T"
What do ya think?
I know I'm no SAZ, but I really want something EVIL looking to scare the poodoo out of my bounties.
sweet concept gonna add bucket kama or no?
not sure, maybe chain mail or a hood/cloak.
I want to make the the whole thing look like hammered metal so it wont be smooth.
sweet ill try to make it look epic and just plain killer
wait, didn't you already paint it? Oh this is a totaly new bucket, not your snow mando. ok. You should finish this one fore start on a metal skeleton mando!
Gonna be fiberglass and bondo, but gonna leave it a little bumpy so it looks like worked metal, I can't work metal like the others.
yeah, that's what I used as the base for my chest plates etc. before I decided to turn them white.
heres payback man I SHALL WIN THIS WAR!!
"Wumbo! You know, I wumbo, you wumbo. He, she, me, WUMBO! Womboed! Wumboing! Wumbology, the study of wumbo! It's first grade Spongebob!"
Patrick: I'm mad. Spongebob: Why? Patrick: I can't see my forehead
"HERE COMES A GIANT FIST!"
"It's ok. Squidward will find love one day. But it will be someone his own size. Like this pickle!"
"Kicking! I want to do some kicking!"
"Me thinks it's mutton-tastic!"
"The inner machinations of my mind are an enigma." (Thinks of milk spilling)
"Are you Squidward?
"Are you Squidward now?"
"We could take Bikini Bottom and push it somewhere else!"
"Still two icecreams!"
so do i win?
WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE?!?
AAAHHH! My name's not RICK!
And one of my favorites:
Don't touch me I'm sterile!
I'm headed to bed, I'm tired, g-night vod.
we'll end in a tie.
Im content with that ok go be old haha kidding vod
Make sure to get us some pics sometime.. or ill have to steal your whip haha
small update on the mini bucket.
there we go
Looking Good man!
hey check out my WIP. I posted pics!
Ooo, I love the scary helmet! I'd sure be freaked out to see that thing in my face.
The ki'buy'ce is looking good!
Thx Oredyn, I hope to start it sometime next week, gotta study and take a test tuesday on psychology. Man these prereques for my RN are a pain in the shebs.
Idea for the right hand. Light claws.
And the top of my long handled saber. The saber will have a handle length like 24" or so inches, maybe a little longer.
Both are gonna be done with UV LED's
If that gaunt turns out i might need to stea.... *ahem* barrow that idea
Man you Rock! I have been trying to produce a set of Mando Armor myself and it has been kickin my butt. the toughest thing so far has been the vest and the back Yoke but i should have a few pictures tomorrow to slip on here if its ok.
post any pics you want vod, my thread is open to all, but you must at least post one Patrick quote along with it.
Hey Levi, I think I can actually make that gaunt, I have an idea for the "blades"
Last edited by adonian; Oct 29, 2009 at 1:08 AM.
OO OO OO!! buy me a pair!! i really want to make gaunts like that!! but if you dont want to i wont
But i still wanna see progress on it!!
It'll be my first gauntlet, kinda funny, I haven't made gaunts for my black/purple or my snow, but I want to make the Dark Jedi Mando gaunts,
oh btw i sketched up a few ideas and ill post the pic so you can choose before i do the final drawing (and when i say final i only mean the first cause im guessing im gonna end up doing more than one )
I was also thinking of a double bladed saber, but the blades are gonna be side by side.
I have to work out a way of doing that in PVC, but I dont think it'll be strong enough for anything other than show.
@papa Tone, check out Jax's thread, he has a vest that is quite easy to make, and his work is FREAKIN AWESOME!
And Alpha had his grandma make him a cool vest, I had mine made by DarthCarcinerous (?sp sorry Darth) LadySewForUs's husband. His thread is called budget flak vest or something of that nature.

those are relly cool pretty cheap too
Actually me and my AUNT made it TOGETHER.... just wanted to make sure i get some of the credit
Where can one get the templates for sewing?
was thinking of making the jaw/teeth look kind of like this visible in the cheek area of my dark jedi mando bucket:
Last edited by adonian; Nov 1, 2009 at 5:05 PM.
YIKES!!! That's scary lookin' Ori'ad
just gonna be the jaw bone's scuplted onto the cheek's of my next bucket.
thatll work! ill just add it in to what i have
which buy'ce is this for Ori'ad?
dark jedi mando. NOT Sith becaue's he was a Jedi, but likes the power of the dark side, but (another but) is usually neutral.
hmm... seems like I kill a lot of jettisee ner vod... lol maybe I can get along with a darkside user... but then again those darn sith keep taking advantage of us mando'ade too... hmm... lol
I'm very interested in seeing a darkside sensitive mando tho... there's not very many of them out there.
Yeah, my guy doesn't like the sith, but like's using dark powers, he left the order due to differences with the Jedi and his home world, Aliit ori'shya taldin, so the Jedi attempted to remove his abilities, he found the darkside within and escaped.
I'll think of a simple name for him later.

dikutla jettise, Ori'ad is this going to be ur primary armor or no? Which set's ur main set?
probably this one (dekutla Jettise) because I like the laser claws on the right hand, and I think I will use a hooded cape that I can drop off easily for saber combat.
The saber plans are: Saber claws Right hand, Guard Shoto attached to both forearms, short saber's on the outer shins (non-removable), two short handled standard sabers, and one long handle saber.
Guns will be: two blasters each side, 1 each thigh, 1 each waist (cross over style if you know what I mean) the blaster for my right hand on the left waist and left hand on right waist.
As for my snow, I ordered a 7.5foot kelly green el wire to start the whip, and I got a clear shield for the bucket, and ordered a Greman snow poncho to cut up for the cape and kama. Just need the white Dickies painters jumpsuit.
I will start another thread for the Dark Jedi Mando in a few days with concept art and hopefully a start on the bucket or gauntlets, I think I'm gonna do what A'den does, more than one set at a time to prevent burn out.
Ori'ad I like the concepts... that's a whole lot of heat on one suit tho for the dark jetti... and yeah u mean crossdraw on the hips right? I get that, in fact... I told A'd'ika he should use that on his new armor... don't think he ended up goin with it tho. There's just somethin' about crossdraw that looks so... awesome. Kandosii ner vod keep working, can't wait to see these finished!
