A Slightly Disheveled Medium and a Pristine Big Brown Box Arrived Today - Dark's RT-Mod ANH Hero (and Stunt) Build Thread

Recommended Posts

I've known for awhile that the boxes were coming soon.  I thought about creating this thread because of that, a few times.  Ultimately, I didn't because I wanted to have had the actual emotional experience of receiving them before doing so.

They're here!  OMG, They're here!!!  Finally!!!!

 

FedEx never comes to our house before 3:00 - 4:00 PM.  NEVER.

 

So imagine my surprise when, while I was home for lunch, the big white truck pulls up to deliver the large brown boxes.  I looked like Ralphie Parker running to the tree on Christmas morning as I bolted to get the camera.  I started taking pictures and my wife said "Are you really going to take pictures while that little woman tries to carry those boxes to the house?  She could drop them."  That sent me into a minor panic...  "Oh, MY GOD.  You're right."  I handed HER the camera and ran towards the door, fully intent on running to the street to retrieve the boxes from her, but the FedEx lady was deceptively fleet of foot and met me at the door.  Thankfully, my wife had the camera.  There are already a lot of pictures of the boxes, me looking like a four year old on Christmas, me wearing beautiful TK helmet(s).  Me wearing a helmet with my son, who was wearing the Walt80 helmet that I built and gave to him today when mine arrived. 

It's been a really good day so far!

My Lexan scissors and Neodymium magnets are out for delivery today, too.  How's that for timing/fate?

I can't promise anything resembling "building" being posted tonight, but I'll get some brown box pictures up to share with all of you sometime tonight.  At the moment, I should probably get back to work.  Pfffttt...  Work.  Dammit, I've got TK armor to build.  :D  More to follow!

Ericia - I've still got to build it, but I'm definitely a LOT closer to being one!!

LoL...  No.  I have it on good authority that this will NOT be like the blaster build (which I need to close out soon.  LoL) and I have an aggressive timeline for completion.  ;)

 

Also, can we get someone to move it to the build thread area. 

 

Shame, shame, shame....  :(

After all the hype, I think I'm more excited for YOUR armor arrival than I was for MINE!  Pictures, man, pictures!  Well written too - I felt like I was right there in the midst of the frenzy!

Okay. Pictures promised. Here they are. I'll keep them to a minimum, lest we reach 326... I'm planning for no more than 320.

Truck. Lunchtime. Surprise.

Small box was only a little out of shape because Rob ran out of his regular boxes and had to build a makeshift one for shipping.

Hero helmet, with Feliks wanting a turn to wear it.

It fits! Next...

Stunt helmet and armor, all very nicely and neatly packaged, as Rob is known to do. I believe he may own stock in Saran Wrap.

I let Feliks try on the Stunt, just for being supportive.

Fits just fine.

Feliks did find a way to wear the armor before I did though.

Fresh from the box, still wrapped.

Laid out for inventory.

Wait...... Are those built buckets?

 

Tim.......... The ear wars are the best part of the entire build.

Ericia, yes they are. Rob builds them as part of his standard service.

 

Had I not built the Walt80, I'd have kept the Stunt in kit form so I could have the experience of building one.
