    Hi all,
    I dunno if any of you have seen this yet - technically I suppose this is actually a figurine, but I'm actually kinda diggin' the Mando armor "variant"
    (not so sure about the artist's other re-imaginings of SW figures though - you can see some of the other characters here: http://slist.amiami.com/top/search/list?s_keywords=star+wars+variant&submit=Search&pagemax=40 )

    I know it's not technically canon per se, but what are your thoughts? Good? Bad? Sacrilege?
    I wonder if anyone would try actually making this for cosplay?

    the chances of this product becoming a reality are much higher than the release of Star Wars: 1313, and there are several members here dedicated to creating that costume. if this look can be translated into a full sized person, it will be done.

    Holy Necro-post!!!

    anyway, managed to get the bucket 3D printed by an awesome dude over at the RPF....

    Am in the process of putting it together... it's printed using PLA (which I'm learning more about as things go along).
    I'm Using small pieces of filament as bridging and aligning "rods" for the pieces like this:

    I'm using gorilla super glue as the initial bonding agent, then following that with some chemical bonding using Weld-On 4.
    Afterwards, I've been trying to use friction welding at the seams (particularly on the inside of the helmet).
    So far, the results are pretty decent (I think).... will post some more pics later if you guys are interested.

    here's the 3D render that the printing is based off of:

    Happy Memorial Day weekend!

    Would you kindly advice on where we could get hold of the 3d file for this version of the helmet?
