    Mar 26, 2012, 6:09 AM - Dark-Side ROTJ chestbox V2 (WIP) #1

    Ciao belli,
    I started to work on my chestbox ROTJ V2. It is completely new in every single piece!
    The dimensions are based on measurements taken directly from the original ROTJ chestbox



    So,in the ROTJ V2 there will be:

    - Main box with a more accurate side curvature

    - Up rods pieces, with the accurate dettails (dx different from sx)

    - Accurate down rods pieces

    - New small switches

    - New rocker switches

    - accurate ROTJ coinslot, with the 1st one different from the 2nd and the 3rd

    - new accurate rods for the ROTJ version

    - reworked bottuns (copy of the real one) for a better ROTJ style

    And here some pics of the WIP.

    About the rods, you did the same question that I had in another forum (the prop den) and this thing make me happy...
    As I answered to him: "If you ask me this, it means I did a good work because they are in resin "

    BTW, I prefered made them in resin to keep down the price, but I can made in aluminun too

    WOW the ESB is fantastic! ...and thanks for the response on the rods...very nice job! I was considering building a Prowse size Vader to put on a manikin, (cuz im too short for Vader ) and this would be perfect, as id do the ESB version. Will you have these available randomly? Id like to order one, with aluminum rods and coin slots if possible, but i dunno exactly when. Again, excellent work Fabrizio!

    Thanks again guys for your comments!
    The kit ( ANH v2, ESB v2 and ROTJ v2) are always available!
    For the aluminum parts, I can say (99% sure) the coinslots are not in aluminum! So don't ask me them!
    The rods are in aluminum. But, as I said before, I'm making them in resin to keep down the final price.
    I made a run (5 ESB kit v2) 1 years ago on another forum and the kit was with aluminum rods, but just because there was 10 rods in 1 time... Make them randomly (Just 2 at time) has an huge cost for me...



    the 5 buyers was very happy, the kit had also a great electronics for the lights..(sadly no longer available)

    Btw, the kit costs:

    • ANH v2 100 euro + shipping
    • ESB v2 130 euro + shipping
    • ROTJ v2 125 euro + shipping


    For more infos, just PM me!
