ESB Holster
v 1.0

Update!

Yes...yes it has been a while.

I wanted to do a quick update to let everyone know where things are at.

Current Status of Project


I realize a lot of you are probably hoping to start your holsters soon so you can be ready for The Force Awakens. I am no different. I also realize that if that is going to happen, you're going to need to have this pattern in your hands to give you enough time to figure everything out.

Trust me, I'm thinking of you! Very Happy

Where things are at are that the only thing left to do is the "Y" connector shape. Everything else has been painstakingly finalized and ready to be put into a final document. The "Y" connector however is giving me some trouble. The reason is that while I have figured out the basic shape, it is really hard to bend into a pattern without actually building one. I have tried creating paper versions but it always ends up wrong.

The next step is to buy a pair of tights and have my girlfriend draw the pattern on me while I wear them. Then, cut them out and go off those measurements. If I don't do something like this, I'm afraid that the measurements will be off, and you guys will waste a huge chunk of leather. I also don't want to waste leather cutting out test patterns for this huge piece, so I need to approach it from a different perspective.

Once that is done, then I just have to finish the document and post it for you guys.


May as well go for a soda

One other issue.

Remember how like 6 months ago I ordered two cases of soda canisters for the ANH version? I still haven't received them.

The problem is that they need to be sent empty, so the person that is trying to send them had to order an actual syphon to release the gas. The first one never showed up. The second just showed up yesterday and she emailed me to let me know they're now all empty and ready to ship.

Once they get here I will double check the pattern for that pouch to be sure.


Master Blaster


I have also ordered all the parts for my ESB Bespin blaster from Boba Dept. That project is taking a bit longer than I had hoped, but once those parts arrive I will be able to accurately confirm that my holster is correct. I suspect it is, but I wanted to be sure. I will adjust if need be, but I wouldn't be too worried.


TFA

So, since everything is almost ready to send we need to turn our attention to The Force Awakens. Ideally we will get a photo or two of Han before the film so I can create an accurate 1.0 version (until blu-ray). There are very limited photos, but from the information I do have I think the holster will be very similar to ESP/RotJ.

In the photo below which I took on Friday, it shows that most of the belt is the same as ESB/RotJ, with two exceptions.

1. There is no button pouch
2. The buckle seems to have multiple shapes



I realize Lego aren't the most accurate, but it does give us a hint that things will be slightly different.

So, that brings you up to speed.

I expect that unless I find something major that needs to be changed, the pattern will be ready for release by the end of September, or early October. This should give you plenty of time to get things built for December.

See you soon! Very Happy

Thank you for working on this. It will be a great asset to the Legion and Han builders. I can not wait to rebuild mine with your pattern.

Smugglers Holster
v 1.0


Sodelicious!

I had a special surprise show up at my front door today.



Two boxes of vintage Sparklets soda canisters.

Now I can finally create a test pouch out of leather and make sure it is 100% accurate.

Things are coming together nicely, I'm excited.

Smugglers Holster
v 1.0

We're Home!


Just a quick note.

This popped up on the internet today. Many of you have already seen it, but as my focus is on the holster, lets see what we can gather.



Right off the bat we can see a few obvious things.

- There is no snap pouch
- There are no rivets on the buckle (ANH style)
- The buckle shape is very ANH (slightly different)
- There is a potentially new Greeblie

As this is an illustration (which look to be taken from ComicCon) it must be taken with a grain of salt, but I have added this to the pattern as a solid base for the new design.

Hopefully we see something new before too long.[/img]

Smugglers Holster

Back in Black


I saw a link for this on another thread. There are a few more images, but I think this one gives the best idea of what we're going to see.



The differences between this photo and the painting above is:

- There is no snap pouch, however there does seem to be a side pouch that is further back.
- There are rivets on the buckle
- The buckle shape is more ESP/RotJ
- There is a potentially new Greebie, but no pouch Greeblies.
- The leg strap has an adjustment ring instead of just buttons

Again, this is a toy and so must be taken with a grain of salt, but it does look like only minor changes to the holster.

Was the patterns ever posted, or did I miss that? Sorry if I'm simply unaware. I typically run through 5 or 6 forums to get all my info for builds currently working on.

Hey Everyone. I just wanted to make a quick update since I've been getting a few PM's and such.

Without going into too much detail, I have had a bit of a family crisis...well two actually. While things aren't resolved, it is definitely getting better.

I figured I would post this so you could see that things are close...so close. Very Happy



I am going to start focusing on this again in the next few days. So stay tuned.
