    Ok, people that have had success getting the Marvel Legends helmet taken apart and reassembled. I was replacing my lenses, and putting this thing back together is (as others have mentioned) a mild challenge. In particular, Iím having issues getting the face plate reattached at the bottom. It seems like thereís something in the way of getting mask to sit flush and reattach to the mounting points. I worked at this for the better part of an hour before giving up.

    Anyone out there have some advice on what Iím doing wrong? Iím hoping thereís a trick Iím just stupidly missing on getting this to work out!

    I had a lot of trouble with this part too. The problem is that the side pipes (the ones you have to cut to get the front face apart) have to kind-of "wrap" around the front. Its difficult because there are also two little clips inside that have to be hooked in the right position as well. My advice would be to try to get one side secured and then move on to the other. Get the pipe in, then get the clip in, then work your way over to the other side. And you'll have to sort-of bend the plastic outward to get it to wrap around and click into place. It feels like you're going to break it but you won't. Just don't put too much prying force on the thin little side pipes.

    I have been slowly but surely assembling my vol. 2 costume and it is finally close to completion. I still need blasters, holsters, necklaces, and a few little details but aside from that it looks great! My jacket is from USA jacket and is extremely nice. I was a little skeptical but it came out as a perfect fit and looks fairly accurate for the price. I got the shirt from hjackets.com. The pants arenít very accurate but they look the part for now and I got those from eBay here: https://m.ebay.com/itm/MENS-ARMORED-...Ji-ZDpBXL-Glfw Here is a close up look at the shin guards. The back black piece was made of leather we dyed black and the front was made two layers of craft foam with some mesh glued on either side for some added texture. The belt we made by hand using leather and used a medium brown leather dye. The center buckle was made of leather as well and painted silver with a bit of rub and buff. The triangular rings on either side of the buckle were made of magic sculpt which is an excellent sculpting material that is cheap, hardens quickly and can be sanded after gardening. I donít have boots or boot covers yet as well as necklaces, blasters, and holsters so if any of you have any ideas on where to get some that would be awesome.

    Hah, I got those VERY same pants for my costume when I started making it a year ago! They definitely look the part, especially in person. The detail is hard to get on camera. I removed the badging and pocket off mine though from the thigh. I have one of the satchels he carries from the first one to go with the costume and its pretty good for holding all my stuff.

    So I was looking back but canít find any,

    But had anyone tried any of those China cosplay sets you eBay or similar?

    https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/ecgAA...e2Z/s-l300.jpg

    They seem to be relatively screen accurate but also have some good textures and details.

    Anyone got first hand experience with these?

    next try: which communication pin is everyone using on theyīre vol. 2 jacket? You know what I mean? The triangle thing that Starlord has on his Vol. 2 Jacket! I saw many of you got one for their Jacket. Which one is in your mind the best? And why?

    I'm pretty sure in the trailer shown at sdcc this year he still had the same helmet, but someone can correct me if I'm wrong

    That image of Star Lord's helmet has been in the intro to every Marvel movie since Guardians 1. It's not the new helmet.

    I bought the Hasbro helmet on Amazon a bit ago. $56 after tax was too good to pass up!

    Almost there. This is a solid test print done on my own machine. I'm having the final version done plated metal and brass.
