This is finally done. My customized Darth Vader. The main things are the new helmet, new cape, addition of a full inner robe, leather belt with the belt boxes and buckle modified to fit. The suit of the figure was plasti dipped to mimic a leather appearance. Very happy with how this came out.
Last year I saw a video on YouTube by Cosplay Chris. He took a Jakks Pacific Batman figure and totally re did it. It looked great when he was done and it really inspired me to go out and get that same figure and repeat his process. I did that and then I got hooked on getting these low cost but very nice Jakks Pacific Big Figs. I got a Boba Fett and re did that one. Then last year, I saw they were coming out with a new Darth Vader figure. They had previously made one in the Revenge of the Sith costume, but this new one was in the classic Empire Strikes Back look. To some people, they wouldn’t have even noticed the differences, but others do. Anyway, I was lucky enough to get the figure on Amazon during a flash sale for only $15 compared to the $30 regular price (which still isn’t bad).
Jakks Pacific has a bunch of quarter scale Big Figs from Star Wars. They made a Darth Vader a few years ago, based on the Episode III version (my least favorite version). I was glad to see that they were coming out with a new one based on the classic Empire Strikes Back Vader.
So here it is. Probably the last bit of new Rogue One footage until the movie (unless they add some new stuff in 30 second TV spots, which is possible). What do I think? I think it looks awesome!
We get a little more fleshed out idea of what the plot is and stuff which is good. We also get a bunch of cool looking shots of different locations.
This is my favorite shot .
So cool looking!
