Not much. Am working with my new producer and hopefully I'll have some good news soon. Things are going slow and I've not been online much - haven't been feeling too well lately.

Have been working a little on the RotJ 3D models to get them ready for printing, just to try and get back into working on things again. It's hard to focus, though, but I'm getting there. This time I tried to prepare things for printing myself, making things into one solid model, but there are a few parts I can't do myself, but will have to rely on the printing company to do.

Also working on the symmetrical helmet. Since it was created from the older v2 scans the teeth depth wasn't as deep as the new scans, so I had to fix that. Was actually easier to do than I had feared, so now the symmetrical helmet is close to getting ready for printing.

First photo of the new molds. They actually remind me a lot of the old molds from the v1 days. Will give a more thorough update soon, but thought I'd share this. Enjoy.

A really amazing project! Great work, Carsten! It's been a long journey for you to get to this point but it has produced something incredible.

I really look forward to seeing a fully completed figure!

Thanks guys. Yeah, the road has been long, with loads of bumps along the way, but I'm thankful to all the people who've helped me over the years and still helping. Couldn't have done this without you. :)

Paul Carson was gracious enough to show some pictures of the early castings. He ran into some problem with a bad batch of resin, which is why the surface has a lot of air bubbles and issues. He's getting a new batch and will make more castings, but we thought it could be nice to see even these rough casts until we have something better to show. He tried casting the chest and belt boxes and sabers too (created by Jesse J. McClear and finished by me), but they have so many small parts, so they'll most likely be 3D printed. We are looking into finding a really good, but not too expensive resin printer for this.

ANH - "Set For Stun" - Stormtrooper helmet:
(scanned from an original screen used helmet - the Stormtrooper that says the line: "There's one. Set For Stun!")

"RotJ" - or known in fandom as an ESB mkII - Stormtrooper helmet. (Still working on getting a deal struck for a pure RotJ, but until then, this is close enough. You can even see the squashed in look to the left side of the face that is indicative of the ESB mkII and RotJ helmets, compared to the ANH):

ANH Darth Vader helmet - DJ scan - the DJ was made from the US Rick Baker mold made from the original screen used helmet that produced the tour helmets and later the eFX helmets. Also known as the ILM Mold:
(3D scanned by Mike Warren, 3D models fused by me, 3D models refined and finished by Dan DynamicMenace and Gaurav Kumar, grills and tusk models created by Jesse J. McClear and refined by me)

ESB Darth Vader helmet - TM scan - the TM is from the ESB UK production mold lineage, which differs from the US mold in terms of details.

ANH Darth Vader chest armor - DJ scan - cast at the same time he made the helmet from molds made off the original ANH armor. Compared to most fan available armor, this one has the correct shape.

Darth Vader shins - Dan DynamicMenace had these 3D models created by Gaurav Kumar using reference as well as 3D models I originally scanned for the v1 scans from casts that link back to DJ's cast shins - original work.

I... can... NOT... Wait...

These parts look amazing. Even with the little defects due to the bad resin, they look like they are coming out just great. Looking forward to this run going live.

Just letting you know, I'm gonna need at least one of each LOL

Regarding for instance the trooper helmets then we may also offer the b grade castings at a reduced price for people who want damaged or banged up helmets for their displays.
