    Captain Rex (kid) help?

    I'm making a last minute Captain Rex costume for my son. I'm using my pepakura helmet and making the rest out of craft foam using the "tutorial" on the tk409 site. I can't seem to find a pattern for the mantle/pauldron thing. I could try making my own, but I'm in a time crunch since I haven't even started on my daughters costume. If anyone has a flat pattern of the animated style Captain Rex pauldron, please post it asap.

    Hey Dung,

    Here is the best I have... Shot with the Camera on my phone.

    The Pauldron from my Hasbro Rex Figure flattened out and with a scale for Reference... The back of the pauldron is to the right..

    (yes I'm 37 years old and have a Hasbro Rex Figure easily to hand)

    The second photo is of the figure wearing the pauldron the outer edge sits out just beyond the outer edge of the shoulder bell.

    The last photo is if anyone wants to be a scalefreak and work out the exact scale of the figure (Temuera Morrison is actually quite short at 5'7'' but i would say that the onscreen TCW clones look more like 5'9'' with their helmets off)

    Best of luck! and post some pics of the finished costume !

    Try General Fidelis
    heres mine he made and he does stuff for the kids as well and pets see below. He is a great guy send him a PM




    Check out helmet size , its not animated but real world, Im making my daughter a Cody style trooper, with pauldron and extra bits, not canon but looks heaps cute. This might be easier for you, its all made from HIPs, just like ptting together a normal kit, but smaller.


    Cheers Adam.S
