In the coming months I will be placing my Anakin Skywalker ROTS Build. With friends help I should have this finish before the end of 2012.

Anakin has very unique hair and since I have curly hair I need to get me some hair like Hayden's so here is my Anakin Wig. I purchased this from a person who had already had an ROTS Anakin build he was parting with.

Next was the food capsules not easy to find since the parts have been discontinued to make these but I got lucky and found these on E-Bay. Even more Luckier was that they are the color scheme I need.

In addition I was lucky too find a person in Argentina that makes the Belt Buckle, which has long been discontinued from the United States.

A member of "The Jedi Assembly" was selling many hand made hilts, including an Anakin ROTS hilt.

Not needing it but still already had one in my private collection of light sabers is an Anakin MR Force FX, which I will be using when I am in parades and other related events.

Looking good so far, though as far as that
Jedi Assembly 'ROTS' hilt goes...

That's just an ANH hilt with a ROTS switch plate...

The grips are angular, whereas the ROTS grip corners are rounded
The clamp lever, is just a lever... Not that gold ROTS faux-lever.
The bunny ears aren't a solid piece, like the actual ROTS hilt.
The diamond pattern should be machined in, and not the ANH/ESB mylar tape


So, apart from size, you might actually be better off with the FX hilt...

Yeah I'm picking them up in 2 weeks. The item that will take the longest will be the boots. Jdos is making them.

Jdos make great boots, his work is awesome!, if you haven't already check out Eva Vancek costumes for her inner tunic for Anakin Skywalker ep3, is one of the best!

You might want to check out Diego (Rebel agent) ribbed pouch, his work is really great and accurate aswell.

Personally (and I'll probably get a lot of hate for saying this Wink ) I think Eva Vancek's inner tunics are -really- overpriced, and you can get a really nice inner tunic for much less Wink
