Kev's Mini TFA Troopers

Recommended Posts

Hey troopers I am very exited to show what I made for my little boys.

 

We debuted these on Halloween day at Stan Lee's Comikaze in LA. My boys trooped in this armor for 7 hours and this was there first time trooping in ABS plastic armor!

 

Here is a video I made of them entering the con...

We had a great time at this con... Lots of people stopped us to take pictures and the boys loved it. LOL

I want to make it clear this is not the tall toy cut up and reattached to my boys. I made vacuum-formable bucks with correct details. I assembled the armor from ABS pulls and painted them with the Rust-Olume x2 White Glossy spray paint.

My boys had no idea I was making this for them.

These are pictures from the first time they put it on 2 days before Halloween.

I saw your family at Comikaze. Great job. I remember seeing you pushing your boys in a stroller back at when WonderCon was last in San Francisco now they're trooping in armor. Well done!
