Mando kits
« on: April 13, 2006, 06:04 PM »
After chatting with jedi master ben I came up with an idea. There are many different mando types of: helm designs, armor, gauntlets,backpacks.

Now this is for the BIG SCULPTORS OUT THERE. How about you make 3 different genereic sculpts of helms, one like jangos, one kotor comic style as seen in the Dark horse comics. Then in the kit you include little greeblies: lights, plates, re-breathers etc. then the customizer can pick and choose what he wants on his helm out of what sin the little baggie. Then do a kit like this for different gauntlets, plates, and so on , these can then be attached to any figure.

With this any one can make there own unique army of MANDOs instead of the off the shelf VOTC repaints. So I'm calling
Master Gunz, Bantha 5, RICKY UK, glassman, or any other sculptor to take this up as I am no good at sculpting yet.

This is actually one hell of an idea... if anyone is really wanting to take this on... I'd be interested in a few kits possibly.  I would think that a kit could include the following -

- helmet
- chest armor plate

Remember the removable chest armor plate that came with this Jango Fett figure?  It might be a great template...

yeah thats what im talking bout, and different helmets. like this one here and others then include lights and stuff that you can choose what goes on each helm on top of it all. plus those manod gauntlets from that picture are pretty sweet. The diverstiy of you mando army could grow 10 fold.

I posted on the thread at RS, but Master_Gunzz is already making a mando commando template. He hasn't updated in a while so I don't know how it's going but still. He didn't say anytihng about making dif accessories, just like a basic template you could customize.

That's a co-incidence! I'm working on a mando commando team right now. And all 4 of them have modified Glassman6 Mando helmets. I'll try and get some WIP pics up ASAP. Who knows, maybe they are good enough to cast and maybe Gassman6 is up for the challenge ...
