Thanks for the continued interest guys. Means a lot. Wish I had something new to show, but I've been bogged down with a new job, more scanning for the Vader project and basically trying not to fall apart in the day-to-day life, with all this stuff going on, so I've been a bit stressed out lately. I'll keep you all posted when I can.

I recall the days of the original SFS project, seeing the untouched foam carving. From the get-go, even though I wasn't involved in the project as a member but a spectator, I begged the guys to leave the tube stripes intact; I mean, why not? Seeing what had to be done to make the item castable, that would at least be a testament to the EXACT locations of the stripes without the slightest interpretation. Alas, no.
When I saw this puppy in person the first time, I dropped fruit in my looms.
Even the little head(10% I think?) looked better than most replicas out there, exact duplication. I'd love to hang one from my X-mas tree next year, frankly. I love my SFS but this is just a whole new world. Excellent work.

This is just such an amazing piece. to see that level of detail preserved in the print is just amazing.
It also makes me not care that it is not HDPE or styrene.

Complete painted or in " kit form " for selfpainting?

This is in kit form only. If they were finished and painted the price would be a lot more.

This will hopefully be a companion piece to the SFS in the future. Just got permission. A good friend helped me acquire it, so I'm in his dept.

Just need to find a modeler to fix the few issues with the scan I did. It is not as good a scan as the SFS scan, as it wasn't done with professional equipment, but I think it will be pretty cool.

Thought this was interesting to show the differences between the old TE version and the new print.

There should be a shipping update by the weekend, so hopefully people can be patient just a short while longer.
