I have been charged with building and reviewing the all new CFO Ruturn Of the Jedi suit.Which has been the sweetheart of our esteemed members JoeR and Sskunky joe and mark.
The molds are from film used parts,the icing on the cake being the ROTJ helmet.The build will follow as close as i can get to the way the ROTJ suit were constructed,and as these are non modified ROTJ parts should go together well.

All parts ams and legs will have the overlap clamshell finish tipical of ROTJ suits unlike the butt joint and finishing strip on the ANH/ESB suits.the suit parts (arms and legs) have been made this way and go together very well ,and have all the tells from the ROTJ original parts.Note the bicep thin profile and the pinched shoulder bell.

All the parts have been weathered the forest moon of Endor style,as that is i feel the only way the ROTJ suit should be presented. Just like the sandtroopers from ANH with their desert grim,The ROTJ strormtrooper should have field weathering.

Thanks Pete.

Awesome pictures!

@ DF This is the gloss HIPS version. We offer the movie accurate ABS which is a semi gloss.

The back plate like so many of the CFO ROTJ parts has wonderfully lazy lines almost an organic feel to it.

Very nice. Is the trim moulding something that comes with the armor, or are you finding that on your own?

The torso features the trim excusive to the ROTJ stormtrooper, there is no return edge on any of the torso parts,the trim becomes the return. I am really starting to like this suit.

The ROTJ butt na kidney are in one part unlike the ANH,ESB which are seperated.

The CFO ROTJ helmet is from a direct cast of an original helmet.
