Anyone know what this is? Never seen anything like it.

It looks SE/tour/ROTJ like IMO.
I don't know much about those suits, but they've been growing on me lately. :cool:

(apparently used in "a live George Lucas show" :rolleyes )

I aggree it has the rotj ish look but why has it been cut up so short? Did they first think of putting Wicket in a stolen set of armour?

A good point it looks alot like a Tour suit! even has strapping in the arm's this looks very interesting to me. If only there was a helmet with it with some close up shots, i wish i could get a better look at the ab plate..

Seen this the other day.Because of it haveing the same left forearms I think it' a recast of matts suit.I think it looks short because the sniper plate on the left leg was put on to low.Could also be an old C.O. ?

I'll let you guys know when it arrives.

Its odd really. I started a thread the other week (on RPF) looking for a tour suit.. then this thing pops up for 650. I about s**t my pants :P

However looking at it more closely, it could be an old disney/"live action" suit, the high positioning of the belt is rather odd.

I'm 100% its one of the old disney suits now. What actual moulds they came from is another question. Everything has been highly cut back except the shoulder bells and right bicep. Everything else is quite trimmed back from what I can tell.

Yeah that's definately a Disney suit from a few years back before the 'face-lift'. The parts were well cut down for whatever reason? There are some good pics of them on Jez's site.

Congrats on your purchase Chris :wink:

Thanks Paul, I'll be sure to post pics when I get it.. as long as it doesn't cost the $450 postage that I was quoted straight up. Whoa!! I think it was just an error though.

I'm still looking forward to that purchase from you buddy ;)

Shipping is a lot, I know. I can't see it costing that much though, especially as it doesn't have a helmet to add to the weight.

You have PM :wink:
