Hello - I know someone who's interested in an Ackbar costume. Are there any sources for the mask/hands and possibly the uniform? (Bonus points for the belt too although that may be possible to scratch build).

Any info or PMs appreciated!

Thanks!
Jen

Mister bungle has been working on a build and has been aiming for an version with animatronic eyes, though I don't think that had been finished yet.

There is also a latex or silicone kit that a number of members have used. If no one answers you by the end of the week,pm me and I will see what I can find.

Alien shaman is also working on an akbar.

Not yet, so far as I know. Boudicca and I have both been looking, but no dice. The mask manufacturers who post here have talked about doing it, but no results thus far. Hands are another issue, of course. There must be a source somewhere, but we haven't found it.

I was looking at:

http://item.mobileweb.ebay.co.uk/viewitem?itemId=251030562924&cmd=VARIATION

But after you convert that to $ and find (if even possible) a way to get it in the states it's a pretty penny

I'll dig through my emails and try to find the vendor I used to know. No promises, but it might be something. Give me a day or two Wink

Korbanth (Randy) may still be selling them. He has info in the thread where Matt first mentions him. In my experience, Randy is both honest and fair, he's also a great guy; really helped me out with the items I bought from him. Better still, he's very frank about whether a costume will work for you - he went out of his way to investigate the feasibility of his 4Lom for someone built like me.

Also, thanks for the info, Jason and Matt.

Alex

Actually some of them have sold their masks in the past (and maybe they still do), but not in any public forums. Try contacting them privately and/or check out the RPF's Junkyard forum and post a WTB thread.

Randy was the same person I had been in correspondence with about the Ackbar mask. If you want his contact info, toss me a PM.

hey

i made a silicone heads and hands, but they will be way to expensive for your average guy, so i am trying to do a foam latex kit version, it will last for years if stored out of direct sunlight.
