Hi all,

Started my statue way back in 2007. Was content with the JB v2 helmet and armor (seen in the pics), but after seeing the new DarthJones/Vadermonkey helmet and armor setup (done in ESB), I cant wait to upgrade! Here's where I'm at right now:

Be back soon with upgrade pics!

That's looking pretty damn cool. Well done. I honestly can't wait to see the upgraded version. What colors did you paint this with?

Well, the helmet was painted by JB himself. I repainted the darker gunmetal sections on the armor. Honestly, I still love the setup, but really want to push this display to the next level.

Also, forgot to mention, I am working on a statue of this right now too:

Killer Display. Always loved your lifesize statues. With the new helmet/armor Combo you will even top it.

Thanks! Yeah, I hope the set pushes the display over in terms of quality. Also, need to shorten the arms slightly.

Colors/fleshtone are expertly well done. Top notch


Thanks! Here's a few other pics from a customer who used it to make a X wing statue. These pics have really motivated me into renovating my star wars "museum", starting with Vader and then Luke. :)
