My Captain Rex

    My Captain Rex

    Here's my Captain Rex, both in Phase 1 AND Phase 2 versions.

    Phase 1:




    and Phase 2:




    I also troop a range of optional extras - Jetpack, Deece long Deece short, helmet lamps (great for night time troops!) and helmet macrobinoculars on the Phase 2 helmet.

    Excellent work! I hadn't seen the phase 2 version before- Would you have any pics of the helmet lamp & macrobinoculars? I love the variable equipment one can add to Captain Rex!

    The phase II helmet (and chest pouch) is from Season 4 - images culled from the latest trailer to create it.



    The macros are awating arraval of rare-earth magnets so that they can be attached and removed from the phase 2 helmet.


    As for the helmet lamps. I couldn't find any images of me actually trooping them - I usually remove them if I have chance before a photo, so that the light doesn't interfere and spoil the image. However this is them attached:



    They really work well, look almost exactly like the ones seen in the show AND more importantly allow me to see in the dark with my helmet on!

    EDIT: There you go, found an older one (with an old pauldron on):


    And with my jetpack attached (it simply hooks in to two slots in the back that are covered by the pauldron when the jetpack is not worn):

    Re: My Captain Rex

    Outstanding! Thanks for the additional pics! The jetpack looks great! So, it hooks to two slots in your backplate-Sounds like a fairly simple arrangement- but if the slots are hidden by the pauldron when not using the JP, do you have a different pauldron to use when you have the JP?

    Nope. The slots are covered by the pauldron (made by General Fidelis) when no jetpack is worn. When the jetpack is worn most of the hooks are covered (if you could see it directly from above you'd see a bit of the hooks emerging from the pauldron). I'll see if I get chance to take some photos showing details at this weekends troop.

    Pretty cool. Yours is the first phase 2 Rex I have seen kitted up. I know some others are working on it right now, but you appear to be the first.


    One question though............why is that kid putting his gun in his mouth, I mean it couldn't have been that bad.

    Re: My Captain Rex

    LMAO!

    Yeah he was licking a sucker on the end of it and trying to shoot the troopers before they shot him. He was a little intimidated and didn't try to shoot me... I beleive I am the first to troop a Phase 2 Rex, was a little concerned it wouldn't get the recognition when out on a troop that my Phase 1 does - people not being that familiar with Phase 2 Rex yet - but aside from being called a Cyberman (robot from Dr Who!!) by one family, everyone knew I was Captain Rex (although a handful of kids called me Commander Rex - don't you just love instant promotions! lol)

    Wow, nice work man. Weathering is top notch.

    Re: My Captain Rex

    A couple of pics from yesterdays troop:





    I wasn't able to take a photo of the jetpack attachment in place - I came down with a major (massive) migraine whilst in costume and couldn't remain in costume to take the photo.

    What made my day was the number of kids coming up to me saying "Woooooh! Captain Rex in season 4 armour!"

    Thanks Although I have to admit that despite the armour and the voice (I use a top quality voice amp and am good with accents), I am not a man... lol

    Re: My Captain Rex

    Bummer about the migraine! That SUCKS!! No worries on not getting pics of the JP attachment system- another time! I really appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions!
    I've got the Sideshow Captain Rex, which is what I was basing my armor on, save that it has a grey ammo belt...is this the only version with a grey one?

    Re: My Captain Rex

    I have the sideshow Rex too and the belt on mine is also grey however - I altered mine a little to be as close I could to it. If you look at the promo images of Sideshow's Rex on their site you'll see it has a white belt with heavy weathering - which goes over the ab plate too. This is what I based mine on rather then the mass produced - cheating - start off grey belt the figures come with - Lucas film would've signed off on the one on the website imho.

    Those are some fantastic kits. I do love that Rex. The details look great.

    Wolffe looks ready to get a little country on some droids with that pitchfork. He's even throwing down a Jango pose with the tanks haha.

    Looking good Jo. It always helps to have a few mates around when you're taking clone pic's, after all what's the point in being a clone if there's only one of you?
