Killer images! Your Phase II Rex helmet looks great!
Was this a scratchbuild? Pep? Kit? I assume it's made of fiberglass.
My armour is a kit - actually several, it's vac-formed HIPs. The helmets are fibreglass. The blaster pistols I made, they are resin. The belt and pouches are a rubber kit and the jetpack is resin and fibreglass, modded by myself from a BFUK pack.
Thanks, your helmet on CT.Net showed me it could be done on a realistic phase II lid.Your Phase II Rex helmet looks great!
Well new photo's have shown more detail on Rex
So I've added more detail to my helmet:
Awesome! I saw that pic the other day and saw the Neyo aerators too. I am wondering if his face-plate is like Neyo's too. The frown on this new Rex helmet is much more angular when compared to the new Phase-II grunts in the forthcoming Season Four. Looking awesome Orthar
I'm not convinced on a Neyo faceplate. I have one of SGB's outstanding Neyo lids and the frown is considerably different to that on Rex. Even if you take into account the animated styling then compairing animated phase 2 Rex helmet with animated phase 2 Wolffe helmet - which is a confirmed Neyo style - they still look very different. Chances are the difference in the frown comes from the animators trying to fit a phase 1 T-visor into a phase 2 helmet. It's easy enough for us in reality (can speak from experiance there) but computers have an annoying habit of moving one area when you alter another connected point.
Got to count the tallys on the left arm and finish the light blue stripe on the sides of the chest plate
Dave Filoni has said that Rex's helmet is custom. Rex cuts up his old and new helmets and combines them, making his 1 of a kind.
Agreed, I'd say the phase I visor and extra aerators certainly manage a unique "Captain Rex" look.
Great looking Rex! Like the idea of rare earth magnets to hold the macros to the bucket.
Very nice costume!!
thats a sick costume
I'm working on a rex also (animated film version with jetpack). I was wondering if you get a chance could you post some pix of the mounting system you're using for your jetpack. I know you said the mounts are concealed by the pauldron when not wearing the pack but what do you do about the pauldron while wearing the pack?
I'm using OSCS Phase I armor/bucket, GF pauldron, and a BFUK jango arena jetpack.
I'm trooping this Saturday to support the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal. I wasn't planning on taking the jetpack but I will and will get some photos taken of how the jetpack sits with the pauldron - which is also a GF pauldron.
Here's an image of the hook attachment:
As you can see, the paint cracked but as it only occured on the inside, which is never seen; I didn't worry about it.
As you can see the pack is a BFUK - the mods I did for the pack (it was originally a Boba pack) prompted Rob (BFUK) to make his arena packs. As my pauldron is an Ep3 pauldron it's not as long in the rear as the animated version, so there is likely to be some differences.
Nice. Thank you for responding so quickly! I like the hook attachment. It's got me thinking :-)
Good luck with the troop this weekend!
Love it. I'm hoping to see Fox this season so I can make a realistic version of him. If not, it'll have to be non-canon, cuz I gotta do it.
Hope to see more pics from your Next troops!
congrats, Shoplifting will not be tolerated
Just got a copy of Star Wars The Essential Guide To Warfare and found I'm in it!!!
This is my armour (as was)!
I like I said on FB that's so cool! You are now part of the official SW mythos!
