Thank you, JediDefender, for having a catch-all thread for most of the super hero/comic book franchises.

I hear it's what props up Cleveland's economy.
You can see in Picture A that Han is wearing his classic A New Hope low cut shirt. In most of Empire Strikes Back, Han is seen wearing the shirt shown in Picture B, with the flap. This is what he is wearing when he is frozen. However, when the prop makers made the life-sized cast of frozen Han (Picture C), they didn’t have access to the new wardrobe yet, so they sculpted his low cut shirt from A New Hope (the face is Harrison’s though, of which Adywan has a cast of also). Picture D shows that Han is wearing his flapped shirt when he is unfrozen in Return of the Jedi.
So Adywan is making a flapped shirt model to replace the close up shots when the low cut shirt can be seen. It may seem like a lot of work for something so small, but Adywan wasn’t about to let something like that go by without trying to fix it.
This was achieved by making the front section of the shirt in cotton and then dipping in resin and applying to the body and then shaped to give the wrinkles. Hollow areas were then filled and it was then given a light coat of resin.
It's a bit tiny bit of a kitbash, but the base (90%) is the TVC 3PO, yeah. Definitely the dud of the wave...
You can get a better look at 3PO in our image database now.
You can see the glued on panels there, but without my TVC 3PO to reference, I couldn't tell you what the "new parts" they said he had were...
It'll be so nice to see actual guys in actual suits again.
Have you had much interactions with the original trio of Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill on or off-screen?
Yeah, I have. Both. They’re such funny people. Carrie is hilarious and doing such cool work. Harrison is back. He went on hiatus for a little while, but he’s 150 percent back. It’s pretty amazing to see him bounce back. He looks incredible. Everyone’s having a really good time. J.J. sets that tone. There’s a lot of enthusiasm and it’s being done with a lot of heart. There’s nothing cynical about the way we’re doing this. Even in the way he’s shooting it—he’s shooting on film and actually building the sets, so you’ve got hundreds of Stormtroopers or whatever, and hundreds of extras and all the ships. You actually see it. It’s all real. Everyone can interact with the world.
What do you think of this culture of leaked photos from set and this insatiable hunger for specific details about this new installment?
People want to know all those special things and when those iconic moments are going to happen, but if all that gets revealed beforehand I feel like it robs people of that moment when they’re sitting there watching it for the first time.
The original Star Wars, of which you’ve said you’re a big fan, are filled with cheesy lines and dialogue which the actors have not shied away from criticizing over the years. How does this compare?
Yeah. [Laughs] I’m constantly looking for a cheesy line to say to harken back to the old ones. No, what they’re trying to do and what’s really great is J.J.’s been loosening it up a little bit and trying to make it alive and energized. It’s not formal. They’re messy, energized people. We’ve all intentionally tried to do that. Just make it a little more fiery and messy.
