  1. Still working on this kit. I have a rough of the body of the vest, a start on the soft and hard chest armor too. I'll try to get the sleeves on the vest next and clean it up, then finish up the chest pieces. I have the fabric for the cape and skirt picked out as well.
  2. Great, thanks for cleaning it up! This is the first game I've played that isn't an MMO or PC FPS since maybe Halo 3, 10 years or so? And playing a console ported to PC is not the best idea either. But, I thought this was the best way to get full 360s and close ups of specific pieces, should I need them. And it refreshes the story of the character for me, which was part of the reason I wanted to do this costume!
  3. OK, so curiosity got the best of me and I bought the game on steam and played through it until I got this costume. Here are some higher res images than the old ones in the gallery. Other than the obvious rendering limitations in this now ancient game, these shots are a bit better lit and show what the in-game version looks like. I will continue to get other angles and try for different areas of lighting effects to get more full data on it. I have already noticed a few interesting bits. The under skirt pieces are there, though they are the same color as the skirt and not embellished. There are a couple of rectangles on the lower part of the left chest armor. The dark maroon bands on the upper forearm are more visible too. There also appears to be at least some texture on the cloak and skirt, though only visible from certain angles. Now that I have my own image source (and some support to go for it), I am definitely going to pursue this version of Starkiller. Thanks again for the guidance so far! EDIT: Updated with imgur hosted images.
  4. Hello all, I am a relatively recent 501st joiner, but I am really getting into it. I really am happy with my first build but I want to get something to troop in that I can have a saber, because really that is the iconic Star Wars image. I'm too short to pull off Vader, so I needed to find something else. My long term build project has been for a TOR dark council member that doesn't appear to have been done much, if at all. So while I go through the trial and error on that monster, I wanted to build an established Sith character so I can get some glow-stick time at troops. Galen has a great story and I like a lot of the costumes he has approved. My two favorite are the Sith Stalker and the Sith Robes. The stalker is awesome but looks like a huge investment in time and money. I want two things out of this build, lightsabers and to do it all on my own from scratch. I think this can be done with the robes version. I have quickly acquired some basic competence in swing from doing all of the soft armor for my shadow scout myself. I have also been messing around with sintra, kydex, etc. for hard parts. I can push both of those skill sets with this build. A couple questions before I really get going (I already started cutting and shaping the chest armor last night). I strongly prefer the "game" look, all black, to the red lined version which looks like a B-movie vampire to me. The CRL in the main resource only mentions the red version, but the black version has an essentially identical CRL on this forum. Is that version approved as well but just not updated to the CRL? And regarding the fabric for the cape and skirt. Do people go with the same fabric for both? I ask because most shots I've seen look like it, but the skirt on some sources, particularly the action figure, show a much more textured fabric on the skirt. Thanks for any input, I'm sure I'll have many more questions as this thing gets rolling.
