    EDIT: Added more pictures...and can't believe no ones got this yet. OK so here's a hint: Classic Sci-Fi movie.

    SECOND EDIT: WINNER! Nice one Sith Sheriff!

    He got it with "Earth vs. the Flying Saucers" The grand-daddy of every "bad guys in cool body armor" movie to follow. This was, I believe the first time it'd been done. With special effects by none other then the legend Ray Harryhausen who with this movie set the Bar for all UFO Invasion movies to follow.

    YES....we're making the whole suit :)

    As per usual, me and my Dad sitting in the shop watching movies and one of us says "Hey, now that'd be neat to make..." that is immediately followed by the other saying "I'll get the foam..."

    I thought it'd be fun to see who could guess this latest piece we're cooking up on the workbench, no prizes or anything, just bragging rights and a Rep bump :lol

    To win, just post the name of the movie and what the piece is. Oh and say how many pictures it took to "see" what it was!

    CORRECT answer will get a reply (don't want to fill the thread with nope...uh uh...no...sorry...)

    Easy!

    I was going to hazard a guess at something from Space 1999. Looked a little like the command module from an Eagle Transporter for a minute.....

    I was going to say the same thing, but the nose isn't pointed enough, and it needs the indents on the front. Before I was going to post I checked some photos of the eagle but then figured no it wasn't one of those.

    Yeah, we're making a few of these to walk around in at D*Con to promote our vendor table. Even got the voice distorter hooked to speekers in the suits so when we walk around....

    "People of Dragon Con attention...people of Dragon Con attention...for the best prices in the galaxy goto J & J Movie Props..."

    I know, silly right? But we have fun and really thats all we care about :lol
    When we're not usen them they'll be on display there with our original movie poster from it.

    So I guess this just turned into a "WIP" thread :p wish I knew how to change titles !

    Awesome :lol

    A ref pic I happen to have handy. :)

    I rented this a few weeks ago thru iTunes, and you have the option of a 'moderate' HD rental. I think it's out on blu-ray, too.

    Very first test fit. We're very happy with it...needs a lot more sanding though.

    I wasn't sure how big it was until now. Hard to judge scale on a featureless blob.

    It looks like a clam ate your head :lol

    Looks great so far - good luck! :)

    This is shaping up nicely.
    I saw this movie for the first time a few weeks ago on TCM.
    Really cool.
    Ray Harryhausen was such a master.

    Does anyone know what that device is that is on the table, in the foreground in the photo in post 28?

    It was in "Forbidden Planet", "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.", "I Spy", and Lord knows what else. In TMFU episodes they had it powered, and the white tubes on the side were lighted.

    It's a prop from out of The Undersea Kingdom. It was not in Forbidden Planet.

    It was in "Forbidden Planet", it is in the background during the Klystron Frequency Modulator scene. It is on a tall tripod and has a large clear dish on it. Mr Day, you are the person that told me what it was on the All Sci-Fi Board.

    You're correct. I was thinking it was a separate unit.
