Hey folks, I'm finally putting together my Endor Commando after seeing some fantastic ones at C6. One piece that is elusive is the wrist com . . . where can I find a good source?

Thanks!

I am in the process of researching this prop. I will make a sculpt and then I will have to discuss with a few guys in the local Base on how best to manufacture it -- but that will in the first hand be for the Nordic Base. After that, we'll see.

I believe that the original comm pad was made from two vacuuformed parts. The brown part in thick plastic and the black part in thin plastic like the comm pads worn by X-wing pilots. The two parts were obviously bolted together (otherwise, what would be the purpose of the bolt that is visible in some pictures?)
I have not seen any evidence that there would be high walls surrounding the black greeblies. In many pictures, it looks to me like the black parts are protruding. There is not much shadow around the black parts.

I believe that one greeblie that was cast as part of the black parts is likely to have been a safety lever from a British Sterling machine gun. The Sterling was the base for the DH-17 and the E-11 blasters.
