Greetings Rebels!

Name's Ben, I'm a current member of the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club living in Victoria, Australia. And herein I'm hoping to showcase/document my Star Wars: The Old Republic Armoured Jedi build.

Here is the armour as it stands now. The chest and waist armour are vacformed ABS (and I have no idea who made it - it was bought second-hand from someone, several years ago, who had also forgotten the maker). The rest of the armour is from Mynock's Den.



I also have a lightsaber(s) ready for this costume but - depending on whether it's approvable to do so - I may alternate or exchange it for a crossguard lightsaber (think Kylo Ren's lightsaber, but obviously different hilt design and different blade colour).

The armour pieces are looking very nice! I look forward to seeing them finished.
And the lightsaber also looks great. Very Happy

I think Kylo Ren's style is currently a no go unless something have changed since it was last discussed. Unless you have references of armoured TOR jedi with that style of lightsaber?

What character/armour are you making specifically from TOR?

Well crossguard lightsabers are obtainable in Star Wars: The Old Republic - guarantee I could find more than a few people using them haha

Just making a generic armoured Jedi.

Bringing this thread back from the grave; took a long hiatus from working on this kit, getting back into it now!

What I've done:

Gauntlets - trimmed the alcove out of both top halves and a bit of the overlap off the bottom halves, then heat-shaped them to align and glued the halves together with Araldite.



Shins - heat-shaped so both halves align (almost) perfectly, held together temporarily with masking tape. Trying to come up with a closure method that will work with them and fit the CRLs; any suggestions?


Thighs - one thigh has been perfectly aligned and glued together with Araldite. The other has been glued together along one edge, and needs heat-shaping to get it to line up properly.

Thanks!

Trying to source a set of thermals to wear under the armour, so I can start mounting soon(ish). Heading into summer here in Australia, though; really picked a bad time to need thermals!! ^_^'

Heh, not in season down under. Razz Ordering from the northern hemisphere might be too expensive, but it is in season here.

Haha, that was my first thought. Trawled the length and breadth of Amazon, found a bunch of cheap options and a few costlier ones ... and NONE of them ship to Australia!! Mad
