    I love it. I always get a little jealous when I see a really well done Clone, and this one has me greener than ever!

    Well done Brian. Can't wait to see your custom parts.

    Best picture, right there. The look on the kid's face as he's waving at you, just awesome. Looks like that very large-headed construction worker is cuttin' in on your territory though.

    And I do believe we need more pics of the Dewback. 8)

    Next to that kid is another little one dressed in a clone outfit too? I bet he was thrilled!!

    I wouldn't mind seeing more of that Dewback too?

    Amazing and I love your display case in the background. I have the Legos collector edition AT-ST in my room XD. I kinda would like to do an Omega Squad suit eventually.

    Great work mate.

    oh man... all these kids in their anakin, obiwan, ahsoka and rex costumes were just freaking out when they saw our little mini-group in the parade. lots of cody costumes too.

    grievous and ventress were getting a lot of love too. you can really tell that the animated series is resonating well with kids!

    Re: Captain Rex

    wow that is a really good looking captain rex have you thought at all about dry brushing some chrome silver on the edges and barrels of the blaster to give them a more weathered metal and battle worn look?

    i'm going for a look that's as close to the animation as i can get... the animated ones have no silver weathering on them, so neither do i

    Awesome suit!!

    Are you going to eventually mod the ab and chest plates to make it more like the anim version? I like it the way it is, just curious.

    I'm eventually going to build an entirely custom suit. I wanted to cut the chest plate on my current one, but I need to make a new ab plate first, since mine is too short for that.

    Well it looks great now, but will be fun to see your mods as you do them.

    Re: Captain Rex

    what kind of bucket is that?
    could we get some more info on the building process of the armor?
    I'd love to know how you did the Kama, I can't figure out how to do trim.
    Any tips on making those DCs? I thought that'd be more originale for me then westers.

    i made the bucket. it's version 1 of a modded hasbro. just wait til you see version 2!

    my rex web page is pretty sparse right now, but it does have a section on the helmet:

    how i made it all is sort of a mess

    silly as it may seem, this is a temporary suit.

    i'm doing my own 100% from scratch clone kit, based on the clone wars style armor. from head to toe, it will be all made by me. i've got the first pulls of the forearms done:



    those are the prototypes. i need to tweak the masters a bit to get some better detail in a few spots.

    you can see the biceps and hand plates untrimmed here:



    the pistols i made out of MDF:



    then i molded them and made a pair in resin. but i trashed the mold by accident, so i had to do a LOT of cleanup to the resin ones. i'm planning to make a new mold at some point soon.

    overall, it's going to be a loooooooong road on this one.

    Re: Captain Rex

    Have you ever worked with sintra? I'm considering trying to make some Clone Wars armor now that my Mando is mostly done.
    But the full body armor is a pain to mold in my experience, I can't tell you how much time we spent trying to make gauntlets, and we still didn't figure it out.
    If you have any ideas to make molding easier that would be helpful.
    (on a side note, after seeing you make that bucket, I think I may make one regardless)

    Re: Captain Rex

    I'd still love to hear anything about that kama trim!
    and do you have anything that could help ME make some MDF DCs?
    I'd really be thankfull for ANY help!
    THX, and good luck!
