CrossOVERS not CrossDRESSERS! Well, sort of.
Ok, here I'm going to go through some concept pics of crossover armors with other universes. For example, what if starfleet somehow made contact with the Star Wars Galaxy, and Starfleet used the Mandalorian Armor, and/or the Klingons did? Or perhaps Batman was somehow transported to the Star Wars universe, and took on the mandalorian armor, even after returning home? Or maybe the Mandalorian culture made an impact with the gundam universe and Mandalorian armor themed Gundams started showing up? Well, I'm going to answer these and other such questions. Ain't sci-fi grand?
Ok, first up I have version 1.0 to the Mando/Batman crossover, specificly the Batman Beyond version, and is currently my only drawing so far that I have out of my brain. I used the top portion of Wizardofflight's tempalte picture that you has posted in his armor template pages so it's just the armor right now. In fact it's just the black armor, black suit, and the Batman Beyond symbol on the right chest piece. It took a while to clean up the haze around the lines in the picture in MS paint, but I got it done in about 3 hours. The symbol I made in Rhino 3D as lines and rendered that out nice and clean, then shrank it to fit the armor. Version 2.0 will be modified armor to accomadate the larg chest symbol as it's supposed to be in the center, but for now I'll just stay with this and expand.
Upper Batman Beyond Armor Concept
For the forth coming helmet, I'm planning on Black with a littl bit of red trim. The rangefinder will be gone, and the ears will be symetrical, with bat ears of course. However, I'm contemplated have the right ear stock being some sort of swing-down rangefinder, there the tip swings over infront of the eye when lowered. I'm actually planning on making this batman armor someday, so watch out for the Mandalorian Batman at the conventions!
And if anyone has there own crossover mando concepts, by all means show it!
Here's a list of some ideas if you want try your hand at it. Some of them I'll make, some others will make. Multiples of these would be fun
I'll put links to wikipedia articles to start ya off with some research.
Star Trek Mando
Iron Man Mando
Judge Dredd - Darth Valcaar is aking care of this one, and doing a magnificent job
In tribute to the soldiers who are fighting very hard all around the world who protect our freedom (not just the US), I'm going to make these as well. If you want a branch of the military done, I'll put it down in the list (US and any other country). I do plan on making each and every one of these suits that's listed below. It may take a while, but this is my way of showing my support for the troops.
Marine Crops Mando
Coast Guard Mando
Other Countries: (I know it's a pathetic title, but I thought I'd let you all nominate countries and there respective Military Branches)
Police Mando - all countries
