  1. So am I... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I am back on this now. The armor I had received from MIMIC was too rigid and cracked....of course after I painted it red. I have new armor coming from KB and will be able to complete once I receive. I will still need the cape, red boots, and red gloves....as well as the helmet confirmed (TFA or TLJ). I stand by TFA since that falls in the timeline of the book and he originated prior to Phasma joining the First Order.
  3. It is pretty large. The accuracy of the ab plate is a concern, as well as the TD is completely wrong, the ammo belt needs replacing, and the legs are cut weird in the back. The customer wants me to build it to meet 501st basic approval standards.
  4. Has anyone heard of Tupperware TK armor? I am commissioned to build this for someone and have some concerns about the accuracy of the armor. Plus it seems to be really big. Thank you.
  5. I guess I better get this thing finished and approved. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Got direction on the cape. Can now just afford to get it. As for the gloves and boots, I am just going to have to paint them...cannot match the paint very well and it is cost prohibitive. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. The book jacket shows an TFA helmet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Here are my thoughts on the helmet. Per the book, Captain Cardinal existed prior to Phasma. Phasma’s original helmet what TFA. His helmet was nothing but a red version of the TFA TKs. Picture in the book is TFA...therefore helmet is TFA. He was dead...presumably, by the time TLJ came about. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Got more done. Still have to finish 1 bicep, TD, paint the belt pieces, and other misc pieces. Just about have enough money to order the cape. As for the boots and gloves, I might just have to paint them for now. I am having trouble finding someone who can get this done to the color I need and timely.
  10. Yes. Had to take a short break but I’m back at it. I’ll post pictures this week. All armor should be painted by then. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Got some more painted this weekend and was able to assemble almost all of the upper pieces. I am going to need to figure out how to keep this scratching easily. I will take Glen up on the advice of putting the foam pieces under the yoke to abs so it does not scratch so easily. Since these are fiberglass, it does not give as much. If this keeps happening, I might need to go with the ABS yoke and abs. I am ordering the boots and gloves for Giovanni. Cape will be from Geeky Pink, once I get clarification on the border (silver or no border). Biceps will be next, I have some rework to do on the seams first (need the etch in the lines better and fix my overlap issue).
  12. Well, I guess I am on my own this weekend. Unfortunately, I did not hear from one of the four LMOs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Hopefully before this weekend. I plan on working on this over the weekend. Wife is out of town so I have plenty of time...plus I am working on 2 FOTK commissions at the same time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I sent an email to the LMO today in order to get his/her opinion.
  15. I agree with everyone and will email the LMO to get their input on the cape and boots, what I have posted already, and their thoughts on primarily using the figure minus the helmet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Cape question: The picture from the book and the Action Figure show 2 different possibilities. The book version shows no stripe and worn on the right shoulder: The Action Figure shows the cape on the left shoulder with a silver border. Which one do I use?
  17. Anyone know who else other than Geeky Pink can make the cape?
  18. Finalizing yoke, chest and backplate. It appears the backplate on the figure has the circle part painted red. Since this is the only reference, do I need to paint this red or keep it black. Here is my backpiece: The black circle only has a light coat on it right now until I get confirmation on red or black. For the upper torso that is now painted but not assembled, here are the reference photos. I will post the final torso photos of my build this weekend including shoulder bells, biceps and forearms. Sneak peak of upper body parts going through final painting. This paint is very shiny, but I am concerned about is scratching or rubbing off. Typically I do not add a clear coat or some sort of protectant since I usually paint white over white. Anyone got any recommendations. I was just going to leave it as is, but I am concerned about the chest plate rubbing on the abs.
  19. Got the Black Series Figure in finally. Here is 1 picture. By looking at the back (no picture posted yet) there will be some painting differences from the FOTK. I will take some close-ups of the torso tonight (front and back), So I can finish that portion, once my case of paint comes in (12 cans).
  20. Imperial Boots will be making the red boots. Will be placing order shortly. As for the gloves, still got to figure that one out.
  21. Chest plate: Sanded down. It already had 3 coats of high gloss white paint on it. I added the first coat of Cardinal Red and it became apparent to me, that I would need much more. So I have ordered a case and should have later this week. Each piece will take at least 3 coats to make a pure color and high gloss. Here are the pictures:
  22. Starting on the upper torso. I am going to use my chest, back, abs, shoulder bells, cod and butt piece from MIMIC. This is flexible fiberglass and has amazing detail. Unfortunately, he never finished the entire ensemble so I only have those pieces from him (got them 2 years ago). As for the remaining hard armor, I am going to use the armor from KB Props (already have it built). All pieces will be posted and painted 1 at a time to ensure accuracy and comparisons to the figure and pictures from the book. Each piece will be shown in detail as I build. Here is the torso. The bright white expansion piece will be removed. I added it when I weighed 30 pounds more.
  23. Got the figure coming on Wednesday. Can’t wait to get started on hard armor. Anyone know the best way to paint the boots and gloves? So the paint does not easily come off. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Thanks for the photos. These will help. Also, my figure should be in by Friday. Had to buy it for double the price from someone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
