    My move a long replica suit

    Looking good Rolf!
  2. Do you think it would be helpful to pin this thread?
  3. You guys think this thread should be stuck? Found it somewhere on pg.2
  4. Thanks guys! Sandman it's in the mail.
  5. I appreciate it so much guys. And Rolf that's awesome man. I had no idea. Look how far we've all come!
  6. Thanks guys! Had a lot of help with this one. I used to think a sandtrooper was just an easy variation of a regular stormtrooper, and while that might be sort of true, once I got into it I realized just how much I underestimated the amount of extra stuff that needed researched etc.. to get right. Respect for all the other sandys out there. Also, I'm really glad that there seems to be a renewed enthusiasm for accuracy around this character.

    Striders Backpack build with found parts

    Also the corner radius on the brexton is much larger than on the original box.

    Striders Backpack build with found parts

    Except that box 2 doesn't have a lip against the lid and the box should most definitely have a lip.
  9. Vader was the first costume I ever tried to replicate. 'Move Along' sandtrooper was the second. So it was EXTREMELY satisfying to finally have one put together that I was happy with after all this time. The morning of the first day of Celebration, I woke up at 4am and weathered the entire suit. And since I had forgotten the paper towels in storage, I had to use hotel room tissues! True story. I want to give a shout of thanks for all the people who helped with one part or another. Strider for his awesome seed trays and karrimore frame, RS for their found item mushroom caps, karrimore pack straps, and fantastic Tunisia E-11 build, and Blaster for his MP40 hip pouch replica. Also thanks for all the support from all the guys here who put up with me while trying to bang this out, Woody, RS, Strider, Rolf looking at you guys. I hope you guys like it as much as I do. Just to show how long I'm been messing with this prop, here's a comp showing the various versions I've made over the years. Back in the 90's the only reference available was a couple promo stills and pausing the VCR! At the time those old packs were made, I hadn't seen anyone else attempt an 'accurate' version of a backpack. Only random tupperware fixed together. .

Still need to make a couple minor tweaks because I ran out of time trying to get him together for the show.
