Well done, congrats on a great prop
I saw this pop up on the propstore, and was helluva tempted to buy, but didn't have the funds.
I'm glad to see that a fellow RPF member, managed to buy it.
It's a great piece of movie history.
It would look well good, displayed on a simple foam / polystyrene head mounted on the base with the plaque beneath.
However i also like the idea, of sholders / upper torso.
Looking forward to seeing the results!!!!!

VERY COOL! I was actually going to do a replica of their masks really soon. Any chance closer shots of the eye screens?

Awesome piece! I'm very jealous. I've been wanting one of these since I was a kid. It'd look awesome next to my screen-used Michaelangelo nunchukas.

Well I FINALLY started working on fixing up my Foot Soldier mask for better display.
I carefully sewed the broken seams back and re-adjusted the headband to look more like they way it was in the film.
My big concerns are in the eyes. They are still a bit loose in spots and I'm scared to glue it back and instead just leave it as is, but you be the judge. Also on the BUG EYE color, the paint looks like over time it has worn off, but do I try and fix it up some with the matching color or let it be and maintain the way it was? I felt the loose bits of seams needed fixing and that wasn't a big deal (yet matched the way it was and did not alter its original size, but something tells me, for the most part, to just let it be what it is and don't mess with it.
I have it on a new display head, so obviously it fills out better than the last display head it was on. My next step is making a small accessory shoulder piece to finish it off, but your thoughts are welcome. Hope you like how it's coming so far. I just want it to look the best it can for how old it is and not some floppy mess of a display.

i agree... MUCH better! if it were mine, i probably wouldn't even bother with fixing the eye grill colors or stitching... it looks VERY cool as-is!
"i deliver a message... SHUT IT!" ... one of the best scenes in the movie, haha!
this is BY-FAR one of the cooler things i've seen on the RPF....
