Nice, but sorry, I don't follow. You posted pics of your ANH before, right? What did you do that's different from the last time you posted these?

I like the second to last and the third to last shots the most.

Credit where, credit is due.

At this point the one to beat IMO. Very, very nice.

If you didn't come off a certain way with people, this thread would be pages long with praise. It's a shame really....

I think if I'm not wrong they are custom made poseable wired mannequins similar to Gino's Darth Maul. Sorry to interrupt, especially If I'm incorrect :wink: .

This is one of the (if not the) best fanmade ANH Vaders that I have seen, Gino. Congratulations!

Would you tell us more about the components of this costume/display, please?

Tom

This is quite a sweet looking display. You have replicated the look of the ANH very well. I would also like to know as Tom said above about the components.

Thanks everyone.
The mannequin is a custom build based off an ebay mannequin. Lots of mods. Had to do three of them. :cry2
I used non SW pics of Dave Prowse as reference for building the proportions of the mannequins. For me, I think it helped a lot to see his proportions without the costume getting in the way. (Gave the ROTJ a little more meat if you know what I mean).
I highly recommend spending a lot of time on getting the mannequin just right. It's not very fun, but totally worth it.
