I just made one out of wood and then cast them out of resin. I haven't painted them yet but here is a pic. It gives me a chance to put a small bolt in them while they are setting up. I think people have also used keyboard keys. There not too hard to make so good luck!
I tried keyboard keys a while back. I sanded them flat (the bottoms were slanted) and then filled them with epoxy. I tried sitting a bolt into them, but when the whole thing would screw down, the bolt would always come off. Next I made some out of sculpy (sp?) and I set the bolts in while they were cooking. Didn't work. The all broke into tiny pieces when I tried screwing them on. Does anyone just use snaps for connecting the back and collar and put decorative glued down cubes? I'm out of ideas
Damn. I was going to ask if anyone was interested in a set of aluminum ones.:facepalm I'm making them for myself, and it's actually easier to make a BUNCH. Like a machined waffle. I'll have to check with Dean to see if he still has them.
Don't forget about the two on either side of the cod peice,butt plate.Giving a total of 6.There is a specific press photo of ROTJ Fett where you can clearly see a shoulder bolt on the cod where it must hold the cod/butt on.
Crap, I just realized I hijacked.
Sorry about that, it just occurred to me now.
I didn't know if the two on the codpiece were confirmed or not. Hell, I just thought the "buttplate" was a shoulder strap pad or something. I'd say $10.50 for the set of 6, then. But I'll start a whole new thread, once I hear from Dean. Sorry about that. Bad manners.
