Holy frikkin' Yeezus. That's crazy. I know that the lens tells us that it is small but I'd otherwise think we were critiquing full size. That's crazy good, dude!

Thanks. Yeah. This is looking really cool. We are still working out the details, but hopefully things will be moving forward more quickly soon.

Looking very good - as with a 1:1 Vader the detail of the paint job really pulls it together.

Is that a C-Scar? Part of the mold? Maybe just a reflection. Or a paint scratch. Or a smudge. Or it isn't there and just a sign that my retina is detaching.

Well, I did scan the TM and some surface details were captured by the medium resolution scan I was able to do. If I had been able to scan at high resolution, then all surface details and sharpness would have been captured.

Did a little comparison. It's not perfect though, as the angles of the photographs are different - mine being taken from a higher up position, thus making Vader look down a bit more and showing more of the front facing surface of the chest armor as it is in the ANH position (because it is sitting on the ANH statue body) instead of ESB where it is pulled up towards the neck more and pushed out at the base due to Prowse being a little more pumped for ESB. + the reference picture is of the ESB stunt helmet and not one of the hero helmets - you can see this by the transparent cheeks and neck.

Is that why the ESB/ ROTJ sits differently?! I thought perhaps it was because of working out but never heard that one before from anyone else.

Do we know that?

However, that picture right here is of Bob Anderson in the suit. The full photo is pretty wonky actually costumewise as contrasted to hero shots.

The remaining parts will be printed soon. Just need to get the scaled and fixed models back for review and we go into the final phase once I've checked everything is cool.

Also, everything has been molded except for the sabers, so I'll likely get the master casts back + extra parts, so I can continue working on the statues again soon.

We are ready to print the second batch. Everything is ready and scaled properly, so hopefully I'll have something to show very soon. :)

Yeah, I'm pretty stoked about how this is looking. Just hope the scaling matches what was printed before. It should, but you never know and with my luck I'm pretty pessimistic... so... just slap me if I get too gloomy and panicy.

But man... just look at those prints. I still can't believe this technology exists. 3D laser scanning and printing... WOW... it's like living in a science fiction world come true.

I'm going to try and recreate this with the Prowse head.
