    Sep 27, 2009, 11:38 AM - Lucas McCoy #1

    I wanted to (finally) stop by the TDH forums and introduce myself. First off let me say that I am a big supporter of the site. I watched with much anticipation as the team built Jeremy's custom suit, and it was nothing short of astounding.

    I am an administrator and news editor over at the Boba Fett Fan Club. I am the ver'alor of the GA/AL clan of the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club under Mand'alor Novall Talon. I'm also the web designer and ori'vod of the Mandalorian Brotherhood gaming site. Needless to say, I pretty much bleed Fett and Mandos.

    My custom kit here is based on my character from the Star Wars Galaxies MMORPG. The armor is not from a template, it was all hand drawn and hand crafted by me. I've owned it almost a year, and have made several upgrades since it's initial completion.



    ^ Dragon*Con 2009



    ^ The inspiration. In-game General Lucas McCoy.



    ^ The real General Lucas McCoy



    ^ With cosplayers Shea, Victoria, and Slave Leia costumer Christy Marie herself.



    ^ Lucas' son is named Taylor "Cobrax" McCoy. For my cousin's 9th birthday I built him a custom kit to resemble Cobrax's set in game so that he could march in the Dragon*Con parade with the Mercs.



    ^ Part of the CNN interview.



    ^ Costuming expert Thomas Spanos and I.

    My kit is a never ending WIP, with the next upgrade being a new set of thigh plates. I just recently started working on and completed new boots, and installed the LED in the chestplate. I have no interest in making another suit or another character ever basically. This will be my only one, but I get the feeling it will never be quite finished.

    Hope you enjoyed the pics. I've always lurked around but never posted here before, shame on me!

    We're one of the only guilds that managed to make it through that phase thankfully.
