Need advices for an "unarmed" custom mando

I want to create a custom mando armor, with only gauntlets & built-in weaponry, but a mando with empty hands is not very impressive. So that is the question: What kind of non-weapon prop can I carry instead of the Blaster?

To give you some ideas, it will be an Imperial-affiliated mando, especially from the Imperial Departement of Military Research, specialist in Diplomacy, spying, steal of technologies and infiltration missions.

not true shovels were used and still are used today as weapons in combat you can hit better with a shovel then a knife =D


hmm unarmed maybe bladed guantlets? and a few flamethrowers?

No bladed gauntlets. perhaps flamethrowers. only electrical shocking gloves, a little blaster in the right gauntlet, but activated by a button on the arm (like Buzz lighlear), a little harpoon thrower (also on the right gauntlet), and it is approximately all.
A flashlight in the helmet, and perhaps I will attach my armor on a climbing harness.

By the way, my left gauntlet will be fitten with a micro computer (unfunctionnal) and a computer plug like R2.
 
::jaw drops::..... i plan on the whole micro computer and R2 jack for my custom mando... well you wrote it first me guess

Ryck blades would be cooo, but if you don;t want to hold a weapon a force pike OR a walkin staff could look good

Hmmm... no stun baton, I will already have eletric shocking gloves, who will be perhaps semi-functionnal, working with capacitors. let's shake our hands, and I'll change your hairstyle! :lol:

Oh, I see. No handheld weapons. You could go Preditor or gundam and put some guns around the chest area or put 'em on the waist. forehead blasters, automatic shoulder blaster cannon, ect. It's all good

No, it's not my intention. If I have weapons, they are limited to the gauntlets and the gloves. I don't want to looks like a walking armoury, and it is the opposite sense of my costume. My character is before all a diplomat and a specialist of infiltration, not The Terminator.

For the backpack, I already have an idea, but it is classified Top Secret;)

That would be an interesting RF replacement. Acctually, a wrist mounted datapad ain't such a bad idea. Considering that SW is far more technologyicaly advanced, a small data pad to them is probably like 3 super computers to us (give or take). Dart launcher, wrist mounted blaster (rapid fire perhaps?), flamethrower, maybe a long range stun weapon (since you already have the electro gloves for short range/CQC), an ejectioble blade or an underarm swing blade like this:

Perhaps you can uses a short one of those and find a way to conceal it. The ejextible blade and whatever blade that Jango used in ep2 on kamino i think would work best though

kinda like the gundam heavy arms' combat blade ey toragh lol, ah gundam wing how i miss watchin thee for weeks on end, (prolly should watch the series again since its semester break....)you could work something in like the republic commandos hand garud with ejecting vibro blade, ctn has a really great discussion on haw to make a functioning ejectionable blade. i looks relatively simple and cheap. check it out or if you pm me i can try and dig up the link for you.

Rather than going with shock gloves etc, perhaps you'd be more interested in the traditional Mandalorian weapon called the "crush gaunt." Some say the gloves Vader wore were crush gauntlets-and anything that can deflect blaster rounds works for me! Whether it was the force or the crush gauntlets doing the deflecting is up for debate, but not worth debating I reckon.:p I've been trying to find a set of gauntlets-as in those worn by knights etc that would work with my ROTJ wrist gauntlets as crush gauntlets, but I'm not having alot of luck. I'm curious to see your shock gloves, so if they're created already, I'd love to check them out...

Happy Holidays!
 
there is a sect or "jedi" who wore gloves like that and had swords with a blaster on the tip

i forget there name, but its another "jedi" culture. There gauntlets deflected blasters. is that what we talkin about?
