    Hey everyone, I thought I should post some pics of me in my new suit. I have not finished it 100%, but its looking good to me. Any thhoughts would be great. I do also need to get some boots.

    Does anyone know if the original boots were painted white, or did they just come as white leather. I'm thinking about getting a pair at Caboots, but those are like $90 total. If the originals were painted, I would rather spend less money on a more accurate pair of boots. Any thoughts would be nice.

    Yeah I know... I need to do something about that. I'm not 100% done... I still have to add more mods. and put the button box on. Actually in two of those pictures, I am missing a bicep. I was gluing it at the time :p I was so excited to try it on... I forgot that I needed to glue the other bicep.


    for the shoes... I wear a size 11

    I need to sell this helmet so I can finally get a Master Replica blaster. Here is pic. of the helmet. Its not allowing me to post more. I guess email me if you want more pics.

    The original boots were painted, the base was either black or brown. I think the actual brand sells for around $20 & is from the UK, can't rmember the name though. :confused

    Thanks for you feedback... I'm really excited to be a member.

    Hey guys, I was wondering how I should go about assembling the back cannister/ thermal detonator... how were the originals put together? Did they use clips? Need some help. Thanks again.
