Awesome job, keep up the good work!
lol i see someone from MAKAZE in the background! wonder who it was.
I will always like custome mandos over all costumes...and that one there is one of the best I've seen. I love the helmet most of all.
I also saw this costume in person at Dragon Con. My hat's off to you for the work you did on the helmet as well as the back pack. I also have thought of the Mandos as a ground pounding type of troop. My first effort was trying to focus on that feel as well.
I do want to thank you for making a very custom bucket. This opens the doors up to us a little more to expriment with new looks but still keep the mando feel to the armor. I don't know where the pic is anymore but my next bucket will be a double T type as seen in one of the comic books. It will still have the Mando feel but be a complete custom.
Ori'kandosii ner vod!! You really did capture the SF/ infantry flavor. Very Merc'ish also. I totally feel the buy'ce (helmet) and the custom comm anteas. The tinted T visor was a nice touch too. I really like the practical and functional style too, maybe its because Ive been a ground pounder, as you put it, for so long. I think it fits perfect with the Mandalorian pragmatic way of doing things. Its simple but it works and that what counts. I like the subdued color scheme, not a fan of super bright colors myself. The wear on the buy'ce looks accurate, and I was really feeling the roster number on the buy'ce too. It made it look like you are part of a uniformed Mando specialty unit. I got the HALO insertion/Target interdiction squad member feel. I guess thats the "joe" in me being partial.
My only crit would be the bootlaces, and the orangey pistol grips. Thats it. Everything else looks fuctional. I even rocked the same pair of Hatch Operator gloves when I was kickin in dorrs and clearing rooms in Iraq. That little padding saved my knuckles many times. Nice Mando burc'ya!
Just playing off of MandoSniper's suggestion, 'cause I now noticed it myself... Here's a place for some cool lookin' boots to replace the one's with laces you got.
I plan on going here when I finally have the money to start my smuggler costume, so I'm sure you can find a set of boots that'd work.
That helmet Rules!! Excellent mod!
***!!!That helmet just screams awesomeness!!!*** You could and should have a comic book after your character!! I do agree with the others that the bucket just over powers the whole costume. kinda like 24" rims on a car. The whole car might be sharp... but you keep looking at the rims!
Pretty big necro, but yeah looks nice.
Holy Old thread batman....
Why did you dig up this ancient thread?
Because he liked Lonewolf's helmet.
Holy cow, I had forgotten making this thread
Thanks for the compliments anyhoo.
I actually have to revamp this mando. It was just a quick build for Dragon Con, and the only impressive things are the helmet and the backpack. I need to make new armor, sculpt custom gauntlets, and have something better than US flightsuit and my dannerboots:o
Still John, the helmet is pretty darn sweet. It's even cooler in person!
yeah, i'm with them. that helmet is really well done! now you'll be all inspired to do more upgrades!
Deffinatly a sweet helmet!
I'd like to see more shots of that backpack too. It looks like it would be really impressive from what can be seen
I just noticed that is Jubilee from X-men with you, haha, awesome.
I'm interested in those blasters...
Iam thinking about partly steeling the bucket design.
