I'm guessing around 4 1/2 X 3 X 2,
Is that even close?
Is that even close?
I found some dimensions puporting to be accurate for Jedi boxes somewhere online, (I can't remember where) allegedly measured directly from an original costume part.
For Jedi the boxes were quoted as being:
4.375" x 3.375" x 2.375"
They came from DJ, if I remember correctly? Probably a tour suit or proto as Drew said, but I reckon they could've been ROTJ boxes.I know exactly where those measurements came from...ie, the source and they arent screen accurate. In fact I can say they were a prototype.
I'm calling you out on that statement Durasteel.
I don't believe you have an original vintage (or modern for that matter) ESB/ROTJ enclosure.
It is my opinion that you like to embelish in order to draw attention to your belt sales. Which if they are being touted as taken from original ESB/ROTJ style box, is totally untrue.
I absolutely hate when people make claims like that when it is obviously untrue in the eyes of people who know better. Problem is that most people don't know better and those are the ones who get taken advantage of.

I'm just calling it as I see it and it's not cool to sell people stuff under the false assumption that what they are getting was taken from something that you don't have.
As far as me sharing, you got it all wrong. I DO share. I share a lot actually. Only I share with those close to me and not with the public at large. That would explain why you are out of the loop.
Here's one for you.
Well, Seeing as how I have the prop making aptitude of a drunk Penguin, I'll pourchase the chest box, and belt boxes when I'm ready. But it is extemely discouraging to know that they won't be 'accurate', because some love to horde the knowledge.Originally posted by anakin@Feb 22 2006, 07:14 PM
I guess sometimes the point is lost on the majority, by those that refuse to share in the info. Don't get discouraged - keep diging around, you might get lucky.

Can we see a few more?
Disheartening, yes but not without reason. Some of the crafters here have been burned and burned badly from seemingly innocuous requests, like belt box dimensions or hi res photos for example. As of now on the RPF, it is the nature of the beast. People have invested sometimes hundreds of man hours in research. Some of it is digging with people who are truly in the know, other times it is attempting to get measurements from exhibits and such.Originally posted by SHalamar@Feb 22 2006, 10:48 PM
Still, it is incredibly disenheartening.Â A prop board where.. people don't share about props?Â Bizarre.
