    Yea, I've seen that pic, Thanks. The bottom of that jet pack seems to be designed slightly differently than Bo's that is partially seen in the screen captures. :/

    I found two sequences where the jetpack bottom is visible (more or less):

    But I guess you already got these screen caps.

    That second pic is at a much better angle than the one I have. That will help immensely. Thank you much!

    So is there any update on when the helmets will be available? I'm itching to start!

    Lol. Hopefully I'll be able to start the helmet mold this weekend. However I already have four paid pre-orders that have priority over any orders placed once production hopefully starts sometime next week.

    Thanks, the time I've logged on this jet pack is rediculous. Won't know about the weight until I can make a few casts. But I'm thinking about the possibility of two versions: a foam filled budget jet pack and a hollow fiberglass version.

    Right now I'm pushing the completion of the jet pack to be able to make the molds for both the helmet and jet pack this weekend, so that I can begin making the first casts during my week long Easter vacation next week.

    Small update...the jet pack body is pretty much done except for one small detailing on the bottom that I'll add tomorrow before I give it a coat of professional automotive primer. Now, I can move on to the cones and thrusters.

    Finally got some of the attachments done. I just need to make two small adjustments that I missed with the strip running down the center. Then, I'll give it a second coat of professional automotive primer, and it should be ready for silicone.

    As for putting the helmet and jetpack into production, I've decided I'm going to do a small run of 3-4 each to help the few people out there that are moving along with this costume. After that I'll stop production to move on to the gauntlets, followed by the backplate and then the rest of the armor. Thanks for the feedback and support everyone!
