    Oct 28, 2009, 11:44 AM - Mini Clone Trooper (Cody) #1

    I'm finishing up the small details of my son's Clone trooper suit. I'm extremely happy with how it looks...All of the hard work paid off when I seen him fully suited for his 1st fitting..Please provided any feedback that will help me improve the suit. I just need to do his shoes and ammo belt. And some weathering.


    ARMOR: I bought the armor from a member here on TDH. I originally bought the clone armor EPS II, but my son seen Cody on the Clone forum and it was a done deal. I bought the Cody accessories and started the project. Great customer service and communication was great. I bought this back in April, so getting a hold of the seller was not a problem...I can just imagine the demand for these around this time so getting communication might be a bit slow since he is pushing out these great suits for kids....2 thumbs way up for Kids Clone Armor


    Helmet: This was part of the Kid Armor and when I bought the Cody package it included the visor and antennas. I bought some end caps for kitchen faucet and cut them to size to fit the aerators. I made holes so it will be better for the hot air to get out and not fog up his visor. They give the helmet a more professional look. I did stickers instead of the decals. I used pin stripes for the lines on the visor.


    Under Suit: I did not want to spend an arm and a leg for Under Armor. I searched for days to find a cheap alternative.

    Blaster: Its a Hasbro build your own Clone blaster (rex)...This thing is so sweet. You attached different parts to make a a DC-15 clone blaster...each time you add a part it makes a cool sound and after you add the part it makes a different sound. I spent about an hour taping off all of the blue parts so I can paint them orange. it was very tittious, but the results were stellar. This touch really adds to the suit.

    Looking good, if you want to add a little more details, Cody has an antenna behind his right ear, a radio on his left ear and a camera on the top front left part of the helmet, also he has a badge on his chest and another antenna in his left shoulder.

    I had the exact same "Darth Vader" costume... A mask cut off the back of a Cornflakes box, a faded black T-shirt and a garbage bag sticky taped to my shoulder's for a cape...

    If had that Cody costume when I was kid... well the neighbourhood kids would have nicknamed me 'Cody' because they would never have seen me wearing anything else. At least until I literally burst out of it around age 14...

    Awesome work

    Unfortunately my little cousins saw me looking at this post and now demanding a Cody and Clone trooper costume of their own. Thanks lol. It looks great and the envy of 6 year olds.
