Well everyone, it's time for my yearly thread
Well, after Animazement this year, having trooped with a friend and gotten really good public response, I've decided to work on my mando costume in a much more central way.
So, I'm making a jet pack.
This isn't your ordinary Z6 boba-tron, its something entirely different, something a lot like this:

The idea came to me while reading an article posted by a lovely woman on Tokyopop about making folding wings, and I imediately thought of Shadow trooper from Command and Conquer 3. So I'm going to incorperate her design into something akin to that of The Rocketeer.

So, I've adapted the concept into a new backpack. Essentially the pack will be a hybrid between a Glider and a jump pack (such as the z6), allowing for long term sustained flight and gliding.
Anyway, I'll be posting progress pics and concept art soon.
In the meantime, here are a few pics of myself and my friend at this years animazement
