    Animated Gree

    Hello all I had debated for a while wether or not to do a Animated Clone, and of course I have. I must say Kevin
    has done a phenominal job with this armor very smooth build process and outstanding detail, and the helmet Marcelo
    has out done himself as well. This armor is Animated Comm. Gree I wanted too share my progress. I will also be
    uploading my build pics later on this week on photobucket, as well I will be trooping in this armor this next weekend at the State Fair of Texas for the Clone Wars season 2. So it should be alot of fun, so any how here are some pics its done except for some weathering. Your opinion is welcome and any suggestions as well.


    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Awesome! I am building a kit too, the ARF configuration looked killer at SDCC. So far so good on your Gree dude!

    Wow Jeff... You put that armor together fast! It looks great.
    Did you make the black strap that wraps around the chest and back?

    Any ways... Have fun at the event. Tell Brian I said hi if you see him.

    Very cool, can't wait to see it finished and worn. I'm not super-excitied about the the toon look, but having less pieces and a much easier assembly and suit-up process is very alluring!

    Yeah couuldn't wait and have really been wearing myself out with this and work, you did a heck of job with laying it out and I made the strap all from leather that I had bought and from tandy a while back that and some leather welder. Made a templet measured it by the manequit statue and the screen shots, and have it secured on the shoulder with some velcro. Lookn forward to the fair and well pass on too Brian as well. Thanks agian for a kick arrss kit.

    I'm working on my animated suit as well. I compared your pic to Kev's on his website and I think your shoulders are upsidedown, unless that character wears them that way.

    Looks good! You need to get you a black neckgator or balcava to cover up your neck.

    Ya know this armor fits a pretty good sized person with little mods. I'm 6-00 and 225 lbs and it fits well. I was within about 1 " of all the measurements Kev posted. I had to leave some of the parts about 1/4" long, but didnt have to shim anything. They go together pretty nice. I assembled mine in about 3 full days of work.
