Since there has been so much community involvement on this project Matt you have thought far enough ahead to reserve the liscence plate "THERPF" right? Lol
What is the lineage of the body? Is it a fan sculpt, or does it have some tie to the actual one from the movie?
Here's a quick video I put together just to say thanks to all of the new subscribers to my youtube channel. AND to show off my new hair cut!
A Big Thank You To My First 100 Subscribers - YouTube
The "unboxing" video of the shell is uploading now. It's a little on the long side, but there was just so much fun footage that I wanted to incorporate. I hope you guys like it.
Also, I'm STUNNED to see that just as I uploaded my thank you video to my first 100 subscribers, I've already gotten another 25! Wow! Huge thanks and high five to everyone who has joined in the fun.
I loved the latest video Matt. How long till you marry the body to the frame?
lol I read this as "how long til you marry the body?" which, given your excitement about it arriving, doesn't seem that far fetched.
Can't wait to see the next episode!
God, I can't imagine what that feels like Matt. To have your dream "prop" right there in front of you after 23 years must feel amazing. Congrats and even with all the seams and much work to do, it looks beautiful!
Here's the official "unboxing" video!
Rise of The MattMobile - Ep 18 - Arrival of The Shell - YouTube
And as I posted in the comments on YouTube.
Awesome! And with the new hair cut, the cowl will fit better too!
Like a kid... That BOUGHT the candy store!
My face hurts from smiling from that one!
Dude, you must be STOKED! Awesome!
This is an amazing build, and its amazing you are putting together these videos.
Kindo of like watching one of those reality shows on Discovery, but instead of watching complete butt holes, we get to see a great guy build something he loves (man crush alert!).
Im wondering , do you have a budget for this build mate?
Also, can you do me a favour and make enbough leg room to accomodate someone who is 6'7"???........ Please please please!
I'm super glad that everyone is enjoying the vids, and thanks SO much for comparison the the Discovery shows. I'm flattered not only that you are finding some similarities, but also that all the lame elements are missing. If only there was a bigger audience for drama free television, I might actually be on to something
Seriously though everyone, thanks so much for the support and the kudos. The main reason I'm making those videos is for you guys, so it's really great to know they are being enjoyed!
I will of course, do a write up of what happens in each phase, but I"ll leave that for another post.
Incredible!!! Can't imagine how excited you are to have the build and the shell side-by-side in your garage!
How are you gonna work on the car half? Do you have room enough? Or will you move them and work in a shop etc?
Also, I don't know what exactly constitutes "blowin' up", but holy cow my youtube channel is growing fast! Wasn't it just a day or two ago that I was all excited to have my 100th subscriber? As of right now, I have 140! Craziness I tell you! Thanks everyone for all the support on the channel! It's really fun to see it growing.
