I am collaborating with friend and fellow RPF member "Jack Bauer" to develop the most authentic looking 'Marty Jr.' jacket replica ever produced.
I understand there has been no-such-luck with previous interested fans in reproducing this very special wardrobe piece, mainly due to the fact that the material used to make this jacket has always been irritatingly illusive, and that has always been the X factor in nailing this jacket.
As of this posting, I am knee-deep in the research phase and have already identified the red 'bumpy' material and how we will go about reproducing it. The wrist and waistband parts have also been decided on and we are planning on getting some molds made within the next few months.
I have already began developing a theory on how I plan on construcing the gray portion of the jacket, as well as adding sound FX from the movie.
I understand there will be a huge interest in this project.
Keep in mind, that initially we are making jackets for ourselves. We have already discussed the financial magnitude of the investment it will take to make JUST ONE jacket, not to mention labor.
At this time, please do NOT inquire about how much we would sell them for as selling these jackets is not the priority at this point, and when the time comes that we have completed a prototype, we may find that the cost and labor that was put into it would not be cost or time effective enough to offer a run.
I will keep this thread posted as much as I can, but things are going to move SLOWLY as I continue to generate funds to invest in the plethora of materials we are going to need to pull it off....
