    Oct 8, 2008, 11:43 PM - Ordo Skirata build up #1

    Alrighty, I've started on my oldest sons Ordo Skirata beskar'gam. I modded a beat up old Boba Rubies helmet I picked up for cheap into a nice Kal Skirata helmet, I figure each of his boys get a piece of Dad's armor and Ordo being the faorite got the helmet. I also have his flightsuit and his gauntlets, knees and shins are done. Here are the pix...

    Nice, love the weathering on the helmet there... cheek structure looks pretty warped though. It's got kind of a cool flare to it though, same on both sides. That on purpose? 'Cause it does look kinda cool.

    Kinda a by product of the ****** helemt, the reshaping and the visor install. I kinda like it so, I'm not gonna do much of anything to correct it

    Rubies have a tendency to do that, but in your case it actually looks like it's meant, and it looks quite awesome. I must say that I'm jealous of your son, as it was always my dream to have a Star Wars costume at his age lol. Unfortunately I had to wait until I could do it myself to have one, lol. You're an awesome dad!

    Looking at that second pic, I'd say that's Ordo alright!!

    I love the helmet! Weather it was intentional or not I like the flare on it. Your son also has the same blasters as me! Though I only have one. LOL!

    Your boys are very lucky Jaing! I mentioned this in your other thread but this is the kind of thing I hope to do for my boys when they're older. Well done dad!

    Hehe!

    Is one of those gauntlets the batman gauntlet toy with the blades on it?

    I saw those the other day and my girlfriend goes: "Those would make awesome custom mando gauntlets! Oh my gosh I'm a geek."

    True story.

    I kinda wanted to get a set just to take them apart, learn how they work and make a bigger, badder set. That's really cool!

    Nice job on the whole suit though!

    Take care,

    -Nyx

    The Jet Pack is a Megablocks container! The set came out maybe year or so and has been discontinued to stores. Anyway, it had that "space mission" pack and a about 300 blocks inside. One of the Mando Mercs found the case at a local second hand shop that's how I discovered it. So, I hunted ebay and scored one pretty cheap. I had originally fiverglssed one of the inflatable Boba jet packs from Rubies but, it was just too darn heavy for the little guy!
