    Official V3 Nike MAG Replica Thread - V3 Discussion Thread

    The games in 2008 taught the Chinese some really good lessons about how they make stuff to sell to the western world. The down side is that they also learned that west will pay more for a product that they want and they are milking it like a cow now. I don't think they will ever drop the price...

    Reebok Stompers and other Aliens themed shoes

    Soles are bonded. They still need some work as they were not cast in a mold. They are a bit oversized but overall, I think I did OK.

    Official V3 Nike MAG Replica Thread - V3 Discussion Thread

    I was hoping that this being the 30th anniversary of the 2nd film, that we might have seen a rise in the interest of the MAGs again. Sadly, it seems people only remember 2015 which has been and gone.

    Made a much better pouch tonight. Just need to plan assembly better so I don't have dual stitching on the top side flap. Double layer allows me to hide the velcro. Again, can't seem to post an image.

    New D-Rings are slightly undersized but short of getting them custom made, I don't have any other option.

    Resin impossible, what am I doing wrong?!

    I would never add food colour. This stuff costs too much to just have to throw out a failed cast.

    Here is most of my stash. Been collecting these for a while and now have every colour. If I don't have the exact colour, I will mix my own using these. I have both translucent and solid colours.

    I find it odd that the Chinese have not updated on these since 2017. Other repro shoes like Boost got about 10 revisions and are now pretty much indistinguishable from the real shoe.

    Here, this is the stuff you want. This small jar was about 20 bucks, but it will last me a few years. Don't use paint. Just buy the proper stuff.

    Shouldn't that be the other way around? Bug in box, Stompers outside? These are making progress.

    Decided to add some of the details. I can't sew the other side due to not having the D-Rings yet. The D-Rings I have ordered are 6mm but should be the same profile as these 3mm D-Rings. This is just a tester. This pouch sits on the upper left chest. It should be Camo. I have bought...
