    Hey All,
    My name is Tom, I live just outside of Seattle and I'm here because I am looking to build my first SW prop replica, Han in Carbonite! Thus far all i've done prop wise is a Proton Pack from Ghostbusters...

    But HIC is my dream. I'm fixing to go off to college in about a year (10 years too late) and I want to get this guy done before then. I've got the box started...just need to find me a front casting! I look forward to interacting with you all, from what I've gleaned, you all offer invaluable perspective form someone in my position.

    Hey Tom and welcome. I'm in Seattle as well and a member of the 501st garrison here. Our CO was putting together a HIC, think he is a member here as well on TDH, and could point you in some directions. I would love to do one to match my ESB Fett when he is on display in my living room. Good hunting!

    Nice! That would be great! I feel like i'm gonna have trouble tracking down the side panels...so any help would be awesome! Do you do ECCC? I'm always impressed by you guys when I see you all there.

    The same guy that does the front casting also does side panels cast from the original volvo part. Just send him a PM.

    Welcome bud. Darthchromer is a good guy, and I believe he is going to start the side panel run right after the front panel run. Shoot him a pm. Definitely show your progress as you build. I will be working on mine real soon. Cheers!
