Character/Costume Description

Captain Rex leads the 501st in the
pre-order 66 days.

This costume was built in an attempt
to get as close to the animated style
as possible, given the constraints of
a real human body.

It is an ongoing project, as I am
sculpting my own clone armor from
scratch. What I'm wearing here is
part kit, part my own.

The arms, helmet, abdomen, belt,
holsters, mantle, kama and pistols
are my own. The rest is from a
standard Attack of the Clones suit.

Interesting things to note:

The helmet started life as a Hasbro
kid's toy, but was extensively
resculpted to match the toon,
including a custom made range
finder and a visor that expands all
the way down through the "frown".

The pistols are an original sculpt,
molded and cast in resin.

The holsters are also original, cast
in fiberglass, with grooves on the
insides to allow the pistols to seat
securely. Also note that the holster
straps run under the kama, to
match the look of the animation.

The kama is black faux-leather,
based on the mention of the
material in the Clone Wars
novelization.

The arms are a custom sculpt.

The knees, thighs and shins have all
been modified to match the
animated style.

The belt and shoes are custom, also
designed to closely reflect the
animation.
