    think you need to work on it a little more. Just not quite realistic enough. Where are the burn marks and all? And that is not a screen accurate glove at all....

    Not bad. I would singe the edges of the leather, and char the brass parts too though. Just my 2 cents :) :thumbsup

    Yeah the wrist doesn't look like it was 'cut'. I hear that Bob is lugging some of his Alien/Aliens collection to Wonderfest this year. Wh00t.

    I'm sure the wrist wasn't cut so much as "launched" from a wrist mechanism, maybe?

    You got to fondle the real "severed hand" saber? :eek

    So... what material are those grips anyway? You should have taken detailed measurements. There are people here who are very interested in a run of highly accurate grips.

    the "real" one, i think, was just mounted on a ball joint. probably set to loose and when hit with the stunt saber, pop off. vaders forearm grows about 5 inches or so in that shot when hes wobbling on the stairs.

    i remember a set of pics involving a guy holding it (friggin giant hand too), and another where they showed off the scotchlite properties with a flash on the camera.
