I'm a twilek in Yoda's body! HELP!
..no, maybe i dont need to know...
TK1571, i deduct from the posts here and there, that you are a stormtrooper.....may i inquire as to where one might purchase such, and if a clonetrooper is available.......
....i sense a disturbance in my wallet.....
There's only one guy in SA that does the armour, but getting him to do it is about as likely as winning x-lotto. Don't know about interstate. Is available from the U.S, but you right. OUCH... & you have to assemble & paint all the pieces yourself.
If you're really lucky you might pick a set up on Ebay. but you are correct in sensing a HUGE disturbance in your wallet....massive...
Stormtrooper it is I
Ouch on the wallet is right but the american made stuff is the best as far as i am concerned, the local guy is over priced and not screen accurate, u will end up paying the same amount for both and quality of AFX(america) is wicked, roughly around AUD1000-1100 depending on the exchange and what they want to charge u for freight... ebay is ok but i found it was better to contact the seller to see if they sell them outside ebay and save yourself a few bucks, i did that and saved over US$50 on the parts i got shipped over.... I am at moment converting some new pieces of armour to go with my older set
Clone troopers!!!! yes there are around but very scarce, not seen anyone mass produce them as yet unlike the stormtroopers...Hope that helps
thank you sirs and miss......most helpful begining....
You might want to consider trooper alternatives. I'm putting together a Tie Pilot costume. Then you only need the helmet, a flight suit and a few other bits and pieces. But it is taking time to get everything - it doesn't come fully assembled
Royal guard costumes are fairly basic also.
Either way there is going to be some wallet disturbance
... or else get a big cardboard box, paint it up and ... voila! One Gonk Droid
LOL!! I'd pay to see that one!
Nice idea...how about a plastic rubbish bin painted white and blue with two planks of wood down the side and there u go R2D2 in the flesh
Seriously u could also do an Imperial officer, pattern is out there with a few mods to it, i have the number but cant remember right now...
Most costumes you can find a pattern that is very close and with a bit of imagination if can be altered.
...maybe i should take up that challenge.....i've got a bin....
what costume would most LIKE to see someone do...?
Darth Maul...Vader...........Han Solo......all would be good as we have NONE of them.....well, I believe there will be a 'mini Maul' this year.
I must thank you AD for the link for the costume pattern. My Fiancee and I went out today and bought that pattern plus the one for Neo's coat found on the same page.
I saw that one......nice. Have fun putting it together...it's a pretty easy one actually....just lots of fabric.
If I cant be Darth Santa, well them I just aint gonna play !
can I be the fairy on top of the tree?
Fairy????? how about the Xmas grinch instead
You can all stop being twits..
If you build the float, you can be what ever you want on it........
We tried that years ago at the club and it didnt get anywhere would have been cool to have my own AT-ST
I'd do Han, if someone would give me 500 dollars for the holster and gun
Speaking of which, has anyone here bought a replica gun for use in making (like the Mauser, for example, or a pellet gun which someone recommended for the bryar pistol)?
i want a clone trooper blaster.....its big...and nasty
i like nasy
an AtSt would be cool!
i dont think my legs are skinny enough to do it though.....oh, and im not sure my knees go backwards
.....maybe we get an emu.....
a clown trooper, Brun? doesn't that require a red nose and big shoes?
Just upping this to remind everyone, we have a month....I hope to get all the details really soon....
a month..... i hope my stuff arrives soon! 'gud...dammm...eeeett!" - cartman
So do I! This is gonna be great!
