It would be great to do a full statue, but with this guy in the works, I'm quickly running out of room . . .
I also have a ROTJ Boba Fett and ANH Vader that take up floor space, not to mention all the helmets heads and busts atop my book shelves and display cabinets. Yes, I have no choice but to expand the man cave!
I've seen 2-3 ACCURATE P1 statues built over the years and one of them was in SWS when it was still there - and even that one wasn't fully accurate.
This build is a pleasure to see progress along for the simple reason that you are striving for accuracy. Like Art and a few other hardcore members here, you want your props to resemble the screen used version as much as possible, and frankly - that impresses the **** outta me. Keep at it good sir and when you feel that you don't have the inspiration to keep going, just post a pic update here and you'll get all the inspiration you need!!!
Haven't had any time at all to work on this at all, due to the work on the P1, a writing deadline, and then being down for the last several days with bronchitis. And, God help me, I now am looking at taking on an Ironman project. Like I don't have enough to do already.
Anyway, here's a test fit of the head on the upper torso. Again, going for the same look as the minibust. Sort of.
Have collected more elements for the display . . .
Greenish tan netting. Perfect.
Predator manbag. Need to add jawbone. Claw clasp wouldn't be accurate, but it sure is cool.
And a very cool base for it to sit on. This is the pic from Ebay. It doesn't look exactly like this. The paint finish is way different and not as corroded, but it will definitely work and fits well with my P2 theme.
