Of course! Smile

I'll add more as I find them. I'm still trying to find a decent picture of the back piece of the flak vest... I can't tell if the square back and the shoulder straps are separate pieces that get sewn together (like I have on my current flak vest) or if it's all cut as one piece. It looks different in various pictures... In some pictures it looks like it's one piece, but in others it looks like there's an edge going across the top of the square and the shoulder straps are under the square, but I can't tell if it's just a shadow or what...

I wasted no time in finding a copy of the May/June 2014 edition of Star Wars Inside for the Blade Squadron story. I've added pictures from it to the gallery.

Not sure how legit this is, and if it is, I REALLY wish I could get my hands on it! The things we could do with an ACTUAL helmet/chest box casting...

Just a bit out of my affordability range, though! Surprised Surprised Surprised

I already have the helmet (well, a copy of the original cast), but I'd love to get my hands on the chestbox. But $7,250 is a bit out of my price range... Not to mention that seems a bit high for props that weren't even finished. Shocked

The recent Propstore auction has some more reference shots of the helmet and chestbox. Hope this helps.

Sure you guys will have seen this already, but I spotted a clear pic of the back of the flak vest in the SW Costumes book (not on the pilot page, but on one of the other RotJ pages):

Ah, thanks! I have no clue what I didn't spot that picture in the book... o.o

I need to update the front page with the Costumes pictures and a few other pictures I've found...

I've added a few more pictures to the gallery. I have more but Photobucket is freaking out and I can't do the rest yet. I also have some pictures to upload to Photobucket and it's not even letting me do that. >>;;

Found another reference for the white flight-suited Sullustan pilot.

I haven't seen that picture before. Awesome, thanks. I'll get it added up. Smile

I've been studying the picture that Commander Cody posted and I noticed something kind of interesting... It's not the same chestbox as the chesbox in the other pre-production white Sullustan pilot picture.




Some of the greeblies are the same but the greeblie on the far left that goes into the little indented area on the side by the panel line is different. The chestbox is also painted a little differently-- the gray rectangle is a little sharper without the edges quite as rounded and the blue rectangles go all the way down to the bottom edge of the gray rectangle, while in Commander Cody's picture there's a little bit of gray space under the blue rectangles.

Also, the red button seems to be a flat square on these chestboxes, while the one in Commander Cody's picture looks to be a triangular shape.

The greeblie on the left side of the flak vest is also different.


The round black greeblie with the ridge in the center of it in this side shot also seems to be different. It's not in Commander Cody's picture at all.



And, as I've mentioned before, the trench greeblie on the chestbox in this picture is completely different from all of the other ones on this style of chestbox.

I wonder how many styles of this chestbox were made? It seems that there were at least three, each with some different greeblies. Interesting...

And yes, you're right. One of the 'trench' greeblies is white while the others (unless it's an optical illusion) appear to be black.
