Thanks Gartogg!Really nice finishing touches mate...
Very cool!!! Congrats! Wish eFX had chosen this version of the Mcquarrie Vader, I like this the most.The white stripes almost look like tears running down his face! Very vey nice piece, Serg.
Added pictures of my new Vader McQuarrie Style helm from Kropserkel, arrived just last week.. The pictures are nighttime indoors, bad lighting, poor camera, will update with better pics and point out pros and cons imo soon.
Finally my Laws TIE Fighter Pilot helmet is finished, some upgrades were made yesterday: Targ hoses, rubber neck trim and "TI-1138" sticker
Thank you In my opinion the hoses add a lot to this TIE Fighter Pilot helmet. If eFX makes it some day, they really need to add some hoses too.Awesome sergiu!
With my limited display space, the TIE lid never made my wish list until now I've seen yours. Superb aquisition mate + decerning taste,, credit to its maker!
Looking good!!!Ok, so back to the discussion about fan made gear....
Had a wee troop today, decided to break in my TK(even though it's not techically cleared yet) and thought it was a good opportunity to take some comparison pics:
This is me and my buddy, lonewolf(he of the awesome Biker Scout lids). I'm the ROTJ TK, he's the ANH. My kit is CFO, his RSProps, so both have direct lineage to their respective movies' screen used suits
Thought it would be interesting to share, seeing quite a lot of peeps aren't familiar with just how different the suit had become between all three OT movies.Just a shame we don't have an ESB TK(yet) so we could have a complete evolution...
lol,I am currently in comms with SDS ironing out detail for an E11 blaster. They are fairly expensive, imo, at around $300AUS (including postage cost). Can anybody guide me in a way for a cheaper way to purchase a top but accurate and neat blaster? I like the fact that SDS were involved in original prop making of these particular items, so am confident in what they have to offer.. MR are simply too expensive otherwise.. i don't want to spend time in modifying a toy either, my main aim is to purchase a great looking replica and simply shelve it for display.. no mucking around..
Any advice would be great, thankyou.
^^ to sskunky:
Great photos, nice cos.. well done!
Edit: A little short for a stormtrooper aren't you..
Ok, thank you all for your advice and input.The SDS blaster came from you Mark, isn't it? Your own Sterling and M38 scope and Hengstler. And it is indeed quite accurate. As for the SDS helmets, the TK might not be the most accurate (controversy here), but the others are pretty cool and the TIE is quite accurate, just look on swhelmets. But you might get a better deal with a doopys blaster, being cheaper. Hyperfirm is nice, but being made of rubber it is losing a lot of detail compared to others.
Imperialarmor.net aka (Dan) Laws makes simply superb helmets, but he might be sometimes slow in responding, especially when having a lot to work. But his helmets and armors well worth the wait. FarawayCreations aka MonCal is faster to respond, you might want to try there as well. Good luck.So, I'm taking it Imperial Armor is very slow to respond. Is the wait that great for the Tie through either one?
Slow to respond is a great understatement. I sent five or six emails to him over the course of three months and never got a reply at all. He makes fantastic helmets but I guess he doesn't need any more business than he already has.So, I'm taking it Imperial Armor is very slow to respond. Is the wait that great for the Tie through either one?
