    Order site is here: https://custom3dstuff.com/collections/carbonite-build-parts-and-kits along with all my other HiC parts

    The final price for a set of clips and screws is now only $99.95, plus $25 if you're getting a grill too.
    I also have box kit, panels, plastic greeblies, and a display stand kit.

    https://custom3dstuff.com/collections/carbonite-build-parts-and-kits

    As many of you in the HiC builders circles know, I make the wood box kit as well as the 115 piece greeblie set. I've been able to produce the greeblies in plastic,have made a limited run of metal pieces for the 20 clips and the metal grill on the hero panel. I've produced them from sheet metal, very accurately in a batch all at once, and not piece-wise like i'm doing the boxes and plastic greeblie sets. I'm also including the three different styles of proper accurate screws needed for the clips. The real metal will make the finished Han Solo in Carbonite prop look a lot nicer, I'm
    glad there's been enough interest to get it off the ground.


    The grills are finished production. Check 'em out!

    Clips are ready too!

    Remember, these are aluminum, just like the ones used on the real prop. I'll be including all three kinds of bolts and nuts so you'll have it as accurate as possible to complete your replica.

    I would be in for this, great timing also. I'm about half-way through the Bondo job on the face of my HIC.

    The greeblies set is already piecemeal, 5 sections of parts, so you can get the clips separate anyway.

    Re: Han in Carbonite Metal Greeblies: Clips and Grill

    I'm building an ultra light HIC for a special project. Will these metal pieces be lighter or heavier than their plastic counterparts? To some this may sound like a silly question, but many times a thin metal part is lighter than a thicker plastic part. So it's worth a consideration.

    Thanks, I'd be in if there is a significant weight improvement.

    Re: Han in Carbonite Metal Greeblies: Clips and Grill

    I dont think either one takes up much weight at all. They probably weight about the same, bu using real screw will add tot he weight and make the metal ones heavier

    This summer some time. I'll get a sample made, post pics, put up a final call for counts, and produce them. Production should be like 4 weeks or so. I'm not going to make that many more than people want, some but not a ton. It's expensive. If I had to guess a delivery date, it'd be aug/september

    I'd guess about 145? They won't weigh much and dont take up that much space.

    - - - Updated - - -

    looks like we've hit the minimum so I'm going to proceed with the run. I've been going over some dimensions and research with two members here and am honing in on the proper dimensions. I'll submit them for a sample next week and will follow up.

    Re: Han in Carbonite Metal Greeblies: Clips and Grill

    So the run is def proceeding. Grills are ordered, and clips are started but will take longer because of tooling and sample. If you're interested in this be sure to let me know so I know how many to make. I'll have the grills in a couple weeks, and a sample of the aluminum clip piece in about 3-4 weeks. Once I have both, I'll put up pictures and call for payment.

    Thanks. Yes, unless you want to pay extra shipping later. I can combine them all in one shipment when the clips are done. If you don't mind, then no big deal.

    Those grills look fantastic, Zenix! Again, just to be sure (because I don't want to miss out on them), would you prefer payment for just the grills now... all of it up front... or when the clips are done? I would rather wait until the clips are done and pay for them all—but I don't want to lose my place in line (or lose out on the grills!). :)

    If you want it now, pay for it now and shipping now and I'll ship it now. If you want to wait until middle of next month, you can do it then.

    Oh, I know. I've been debating just ordering yours from Shapeways or spending the time and modeling them myself. I'll have access to a new 3D printer at work in the next couple of months. I've done a bit of Autocad and some basic 3D modeling in the past (and I'm a big Adobe Illustrator person), I'm thinking these greeblies might be on a good choice of projects to get my started again, digging into the slicer, etc.
