Hi, people!
I need your help.
In two weeks, my friends and I are going to participate on an event called "Anicon '10". It's generally an anime convention, but we were invited specially. The thing is, we are going to make a parade, we've got a Boba Fett, a Vader, and I think we'll have one or two troopers. I want to go as Han, before being put into the caron-freezing chamber. But I can't find any reference (pics, drawing, o whatever) of the binders, handcuffs, etc.
Anyone?
Thanks in advance!!!

as much as I hate hearing this advice when I ask if anyone has pics all I have is, put the movie in and try to look at them. From what I remember, they aren't very prominent, so probably just about anything would work.
Good luck and post what you find!

Seriously, I would just use the standard Imperial binders that were used in ANH, or ROTJ. I am sure they will be close enough to the mark.

Try looking here to make some Imperial binders:

I agree with Bill. Standard Imperial Binders from ANH and ROTJ will work.

Just paint them silver, as it seems to me that is what they were using in that scene. I think, those may have been the same (style, anyway) used on Luke when he was brought before Palpatine. So, maybe take a look at that close up with the binders come undone from Luke's wrists in ROTJ.

Thanks everybody!
And what about the one in Han's arms? (the one that goes behind his back and hold his arms)...

If I remember right, there were cuffs around his biceps, with something that looks like a simple rod. But that was taken off of Han just before he was placed on the chamber dais, I think.

Bill had a good thought, if you can't get a good shot from ESB, pop in ROTJ and see if there's a better shot with Luke!

I don't have a DVD drive on my computer (not that it is hooked up to the internet), but my brother's laptop does. As soon as I am able to, I will take some screen caps for you.

But I did pop in ESB to take a look at that scene. A couple of things struck me. 1) the Ugnaughts only remove the wrist binders before Han is loered, not the other ones. He does down into the pit with them attached, yet they are not present when Leia releases him at Jabba's Palace, in ROTJ.
2) The upper restraints look simple enough to make. Like I said, they appear to be bicep cuffs attached to a rod against his back. The greeblies on the bicep cuffs look like they have some dome shaped parts, as well as pyramid shaped parts - think of the various style of studs that people attach to their leather jackets.
3) The binders that they use on Han look very narrow, they were't nearly as wide as the binders used in ANH. They were definitely metallic-colored, though. If I had to guess, I would say they were only an inch wide, but more or less assembled much like the standard binders were.

The cuffs could be make with sintra and made to close on the inside of your biceps. ost of those studs that are on leather jackets are the kind that punch through the material and have the tabs bend over, kind of like how clasping envelopes do. You ould use an acryllic, or some other like material for the rod to attach to the cuffs.

When everything is assembled, you would just paint it a nice gunmetal gray, or something lke that.

If I were to take on this project, that is how I would do it! I hope this helps.

Well, aren't we just the little smartie-pants! Razz

Ok, you actually do make a bit of sense there... and it is believable, enough, to explain away the "continuity error"! Mr. Green

Back to the discussion, here....

I still wasn't able to pull a screen cap for you, but the greeblies that I saw on the bicep cuffs of the arm binders looked something like the round and pyramid shaped studs from this pic:


Specifically, the far right corner stud for the pyramid and the third one from the left, top row, for the rounded stud.

I will try to go back and look at the design more closely for you. I am at work right now, and didn't think to bring the DVD in with me to play with. I might be able to do it tomorrow.... if I can remember. I'll try, though.

This pic makes me think... it looks like a chain with bicep binders, doesn't it?
