Hey Prop Fam!

I've been here for a long time but have the feeling that I'm not ver active, more an active reader. Today I want to change that by showing off my current work on the Realistic Style Commander Pyre. The goal is to be as close to the references as possible, however since the original reference is an animated character, some parts will change, where I use the Black Series figure as reference.

But first some personal talk about this, as there is a deeper story behind that. Besides a gold chromed Stormtrooper of course haha
I am a huge Fan of Mr. Liam McIntyte, in particular his role as Spartacus in the series, he is such a nice guy and when I found out that he voiced him, I NEEDED to do that costume. When we first back in 2013 and I had the luck to talk to him for like 30 minutes behind the stage. He told me there how much he’d love to do something for Star Wars. Which happened and I am really happy for him. Liam is definetly one of the nicest celebrities I ever met, he is super down to earth and just an amazing human being. Over the next years I always met him there, took pictures with him and just had amazing conversations about life, geek stuff etc. I even got the Screen Used Sword Prop he used in the Series.

So last year I contacted him, if he’d like to see the costume project, he was amazed and wanted to see it. And well. He supports it with video messages. Like. WHAAAAT!

In all seriousness, I’m hyped, super happy and super motivated to get this costume done.

The helmet:

I used a Phoenix Props TFA style helmet as a base, got it painted in gloss black and got it gold chromed in the UK.

The problem I have is mixed ref. In the animated series, Pyre has black bands around the helmet, but theres no black brow present (also not at the normal TFA TKs) .
The realistic HASBRO figure has NO black brow and NO black bands. So thats kinda .. mixed. I actually like it with the black details as it gives more contrast. There's also a YouTube video of the making, including Liams message.

I didn't took many pictures when I made the helmet but I have a YouTube video showing the final stages.


I'd appreciate a like there :)

The Armor:

I have an ANOVOS pauldron in red, but need it in black. Either I find someone, who's willing to trade or sell, or Im going to paint the red in black.

Further, I have an old BETA Anovos First Order TK armor set. Pyre is technically a generic TFA TK, although there are some minor changes, like 2 bars at both lower leg armor.

First of all: My mood during sanding, filling and more sanding:

Flashbacks when I did the Captain Phasma Armor

Anyways..

Arms:

The shoulders were kinda simple. Just trimming the excess ABS and glueing the tabs on.

Bicep armor:
Here my perfectionism hit me with a bat. I didnt like the soft details that happen due to the bac forming process, so I filled it and carefully filed the new details in. I used 2 part epoxy glue to glue and fill.

Forearms:
For the formarms I didnt use the ABS box, instead I used my resin box which has sharper edges. I made that box years ago for the First Order Gunner costume and for Phasma, I mirrored the master and made a mold of it. So why not make use of that for my personal costume as well

Shins:
These were kinda tricky. I asked a good friend to help out. Unfortunately both halves werent fixed enough so while the glue hardened, it slightly changed position. To fix this, I filled the seam with 2 part epoxy and refiled the seam.

As I already stated, I got the 2 shin bars 3D scanned. Then I mirrored the parts and printed the left and right version out.

There are some small pieces that I also show in the video.

The only missing part at the moment are the detonator and the plates for the boots.

Not many know that I had a depression 3 - 4 years ago, which ultimately resulted in gaining approx. 40kg from 90 - 130.
Everyone who worked on the Anovos FOTK armor knows, that they are made for thinner people. Thats why I sold my FOTK back in 2016 or so.
But: Talking to professionals and changing some mindsets really helped and you cannot imagine the happiness I felt, when I tried the armor on again. Yes, I built that armor on purpose by not fitting it to my proportions. Because I knew I once fitted in there. So.. yea :)

Whats next:
I'm still waiting for the detonator. The black FO TK boots as well as gloves are ordered from Imperial Boots. Once I get them, I get the boots 3d scanned to get the boot plates modeled so that they fit perfectly. Then painting the armor gloss black and then gold chroming :)

By the way: I also get the F11D Heavy Rifle gold / chromed. But first I get the electronics done by someone from my local 501st garrison. Then also gloss paint black and chroming.
