    Jun 5, 2011, 5:57 AM - New guy to TDH, but.. #1

    I have been a long standing member at RPF (over 10 years now)

    Hi, I'm Tony!

    Been building props for over a decade now and I have decided to start a Fett costume. What better place than here to do it.

    Some of you guys probably know me already and I am sure some of you have seen me if you have been to the SW Celebrations. If you have been to the Collector Panel discussions (with all those cool giveaways), then you have seen me. I have helped run that room for every celebration since C3. I also did the Patch panel with Ken the Elvis Trooper last year at C5.

    Some other stuff about me. I do molding/casting, build kick *** costumes for my son for halloween and I am getting a CNC Mill very soon and I hope to do a lot of cool things with that. I collect vintage SW stuff as well. Some very different types of things like music and watches, and have documented all of it on my website

    www.restrainingbolt.com - main page

    So, like I said, i am going to start a rather unique Fett costume and hope to have it done by C6 next august. I have to wait a few months to start since I am in Kuwait right now finishing up my 2nd tour with the 197th Fires Brigade. 20 years in the Army this coming January!

    I am just hoping to switch armor from ceramic plates to lighter plastic :-)

    well, that's about it. Glad to finally be here and I look forward to learning from all the experienced members here.

    -Tony
