I'd like to do a few 'runs' of vacuformed parts like the knees I just did (those are shipping out this weekend).

What do people need?

Chest $20
collar $10 (or 5 if ordered with the chest)
back $25
knees $25
shoulders $15
codpiece $20
gauntlets $25 each L or R

You can see pics of my stuff here:

OK, now I feel dumb...

I went back and added prices to each- remember these will be just the vacuformed pieces; no resin details like the arm rocket, knee darts, etc.

I would love to get a backpiece, knees (with darts if you have them, cod piece and gauntlets (both L and R)

If you are making them, PM me the price for all this and I'll pay!

I would be interested in the gauntlets, the knees and cod piece. If this offer is still open please Pm me with more information.

What material and what thickness is the material your working with to make your armor? Is it styrene? I actually may be interested in a right gauntlet if I can't get the one I'm working on to work with me...It keeps getting kinked up in one place as I think I should have made the hinge longer...

I wanted to ask if you have ever thought about creating a set of Republic Commando armor out of a heavier material like ABS or even fiberglass? That's going to be my next project I think unless i go for the standard Stormtrooper attire if I can't find decent RC armor...Thoughts?

The material is .080" styrene. The parts will come untrimmed, but the plastic is easy to work with using a exacto and/or dremel.

ABS is a big pain to use, especially here in Florida where humidity can affect the plastic. There is a similar plastic that is more reliable called Kydex. Both ABS and Kydex are a bit more expensive though and I've found most people just don't want to spend the money.

Fiberglass is a whole other thing- I usually sub-out the work when I have to do fiberglass.

Is the Rebublic Commando armor similar to the regular Clone armor? I did Clonetroopers for Disney a few years ago, so I have vacform molds for all that.

...i thought i posted before, but i don't see it now. would there be a price break for the collar if purchased with the backplate, or just the chest? I'd like to know if i could get the set of collar and back armor for $30
