    Ok, Here is a little dream I've had for oh, 29 years now. Here are my troopers, the one on the left is an A/FX kit with a Gino/CRPROPS helmet. The one on the right is an A/FX kit with a ROTJ Oakely Fiberglass done by myself.
    Yes, there are a ton of innacuracies but I don't care. Still an awesome sight to me.

    And to make this a little sweeter, how about a Rubies Vader. I cut the eyes out and put in some flat lenses and painted the armor black. Again, plenty innacurate, but nonetheless, I think it makes a cool * display.

    Never give up, dreams do come true people.
    Thanks for looking.

    The only people in the world who will notice innacuracies are on this forum. Everyone else is going to walk into your room and be blown away by the fact that you have Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith, and two Stormtroopers standing guard over the drum kit. Love it for what is it: A dream come true :love

    Good work man. Congratulations. :thumbsup

    I agree with RedTwoX. You'll only find true critisism here. Your costumes look FANTASTIC.

    But your Vader looks too short. :p

    Sweet display, FalconV8. :) Thanks for sharing the pics.

    Just out of curiousity, what guns are the Stormies holding? Did you make them yourself as well?

    The blaster on the left is just a new Kenner, the white one, that I painted. The blaster on the right looks to be pretty accurate, I got it with a used suit, I was gonna post some pics of it cause I was curiuous of its origins. It seems to be a well dissguised Kenner because it does have the blast sounds...

    I did a thread on these a while back, something like "build a mannequin for under $100"
    Go to gershelbrothers.com and look under flex mannequin( 65 bucks)
    then get some of the foam bed padding and bulk them up. All three are the same type of mannequin and they are somewhat poseable....
