    Saldy it seems every site is either Out Of Stock, or they haveit but for twice the price. And noneof them have the pistol I want(Other than Hobbytron)

    Oh well... It's not like I'm in a big hurry. I'll keep a look out.

    I'm thinking of giving his right gauntlet a spring-loaded "vibroblade".

    This thread over on the Mercs forums chronicles probably one of the best looking blade/gaunt custom combos that have ever been created out of sintra. It may help inspire you on doing yours.

    It does look a little South Parky...

    I hope no one's getting tired of seeing these design sketches but no actual costume...

    Anyways, here's a quick design of how I plan to have the wrist-blade work/look

    I'm still trying to work out a release catch that can be easily worked with the same hand as the gauntlet's on.

    Thanks So that's his Right Gauntlet. I plan on his kleft being a standard flamethrower one... Unless I come up with any more ideas that is.

    Oh, and I've settled on a gun for his carbine:


    A change of barrels and a bit more modding and I think it'll work just fine, if not be just like the other one. I'll be ordering it and the other one tonight.

    Does anyone know where I can buy the vent fins like Boba has on his rifle? I remember seeing a site a while back but it doesn't appear that I bookmarked it

    Windshield wiper blades work great for that.

    I would suggest not making your blade out of metal if you don't want to be potentially tossed out of a convention =) You can make some sweet blades out of sintra.

    As long as you mod the gun well enough to where you can't tell it is an airsoft rifle...it should look great, and still keep the basic shape.


    You have done a very good planning process of this costume, when I started mine, I had nothing near this.

    Keep it up brother!!!

    yeah, I think it'll work out.

    This is the idea I have for converting it...


    I'll probably do some modding to the stock as well, but until I have the gun I can't determine what I can and cannot remove while keeping it functional.

    Might mod the grip too but not sure.

    Here's the Gauntlet Blade design:

    For T tracks you can also some times get reflectors with the right shape on the bottom stick. The type of reflector you use along your driveway, the little circle on a stick kind.

    For the stock you most likely will be able to remove it. Then you could flip it over and attach it to the handel. I really like this verson, it has a real Star Wars gun feel. I may borrow it some time if I feel like makeing it.

    T tracks?

    I had thought about just making the blade out of wood. I'll probably try a few different ways. Where can I find SIntra?

    I think I'm going to leave the stock where it is... it just doesn't look right on this gun if it's on the grip... I tried

    And I found the site I was talking about where you can get the vent ribs: http://www.blast-tech.com/home.asp

    Anyone know anything about them? Had any experience with them?

    For sintra, use www.foamboardsource.com

    Thats where I normally get mine, they are highly reliable and fast. Make sure to get the 3mm sintra.

    T traks are the name that most people call the ventign ribs from the e-11.

    If you use the plastic ones like I said you will save a bundel, but your going to have to find cheap reflectors.

    I used that same Airsoft shotgun for my blaster rifle, and took it apart to the point of being non-functional. The pump action has to be movable in order for the gun to work, or you'll have to attach some sort of hand lever to the metal cocking piece inside the pump grip. I sided with having a non-functional blaster, and filled the barrel with silicone. PM me if you want pics.

    I have a feeling if your carfule that you can keep it working. If you end up getting one of these airsofts, and want to keep it working. Post up internal pictures and I will try and help you find a good workaround.

    I'm not worried about keeping the gun itself working... In fact I didn't expect it to.

    I meant keep the stock functional so it'll still extend.

    The stock will be fine I have a gun that has that sort of stock. All the parts that are needed to keep it workign are sef contained in the outter stock shell.

    I think I've decided on a backpack:


    Yup, that's an upside-down, modified Snowtrooper backpack.

    I plan on making it hinged and openable.

    Anyone know where I could get one?

    I like the luger look more than the modern carbine. Its more starwarsy, but both look good.

    To answer a couple other questions. I believe that the 'mythosaur' skull in bobas case is called 'the deaths head' emblem. When I did some work on a starwars game in the 90s, there was a section on that. I dont remember the details but a google will probably show you.

    For venting. I used 'window pane molding'. Its found in wal mart for like $5. I actually built the whole gun, in like a half hour.


    Its got double sided tape thats ultra sticky, I cut it and placed it on, it made really nice venting, and it held paint well.

    The gun cost like 15 bucks total, theres a thread about it in the blasters, but looking at the pics its pretty self explanatory.
    The thread is called $16 dollar 1 hour ee3 or something.

    Im going to try to find one of those lugers, so if you find a place shipping them let me know.
