Jimmiroquai Rogue One TK Builds

Recommended Posts

I was thinking about doing a helmet kit but i just won't be able to beat the price of a Hasbro black series helmet that you can easily mod. 

please make a R1 Tk helmet or will you just include a modded Hasbro black series with your kit?

I personally think you should make the helmet Jim. Just my 2 cents.

Ok, i'll look into doing a helmet as well.

 

Here are the final iterations of the chest, back, and ab masters.  We've made the bottom of the chest flare out.  The pec lines also flare out a bit more.  Neck line was lowered a bit.  Front strap attachment profiles lowered.  Any input at this stage prior to molding would be greatly appreciated. :)

Woooooow. <br>

It's so impressing not only the high quality of your job, but the amazing speed of your work. Usually quality and speed don't match very well, but you nail it and nail it fast. Please, do the helmet!

A little input before it's too late :D

 

The I I 's in the O I I are actually on a little step, and don't have their own individual pedestals.

And as is seen on the Hot Toys figure, the abdomen is located higher (actually is right next to the chest and back armor connection under the arms). Almost like an armor corset.

 

In regards to the control panel on the ab, I think it needs more angular slopes at the ends like in this pic, along with the center raised line becoming a ramp that is flush with the box. http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=263949&page=4

But this is in no way picking! It's looking good :D

Great work! I'm happy that you decided to make a helmet! :)<br>

I spotted one more thing concerning the control panel. At the reference pictures I saw the corners of the ab-buttons are a bit higher then yours. <br>

Best regards!<br>

Hey, sorry when I was talking about the abdomen armor, I said it was "located higher" instead of "it is taller." My apologies for messing that up!

Mine is designed like that for allowance for taller troopers.  :)  One can trim off the top to bring it up higher. :)

I agree with Reese the "O & II" are on a risen step, and the "II" share the same step similar to Original Trilogy TKs.

Here is a photo of screen used armor from Rogue One taken at Star Wars Celebration.

Jim, as always your sculpts are amazing! I just wanted to show you some comparison shots next to images from the Rogue One Visual Guide.

As you can see from this side angle the horizontal ribs next to the ab buttons are actually quite deep and shaped like a heat sink.

Also on the "II" in the screen used piece, I think the horizontal lines are actually raised lines versus engraved lines.

Thanks!  Yes, that's right.  Due to the casting process though, it would be less prone to bubbling and mold damage if the fins were a bit shallower. :)

Yup!  Ours are raised. :)

I believe he was referring to the horizontal lines I mentioned that are located on top of the "II." Are you referring to the step the II is on that me and you were talking about?
