Hi all! Just finished my build and thought i'd finally share.

I was able to work off some early hires photos and was lucky enough to get a pre-released jakks figure. Other people have also been gracious enough to send me detailed pics to help me with my build.

To start off, my team and made plaster casts of our FOTK chest, back, abs and shins to modify into the praetorian parts
Image
Image

While i started 3d modelling the basic shapes of the helmets (first time 3d modeller). waste molds of these basic shapes were made and casts were done in plaster as well. Details were added to these plaster casts.
Image

I did the same with the arm sections.
Image

Once the masters were finished, silicone molds were made and the armor parts were cast in our flexible fiberglass mix and the helmet in rigid fiberglass.
Image

For the soft parts, I did my best to find the pebbled texture used but the closest i could find locally was this textured faux leather. I hope it will be enough to pass muster:
Image

Undersuit is made of textured synthetic leather with jersey and mesh used in the hidden sections. Not perfect but i think will pass for basic. Skirt is fleece/wool.
Image
Image

I rigged everything up in one night.

Sent everything to be painted and here it is!

Some notes:
Vision is excellent
Mobility is good
Difficult to wear and will need a handler.
Have to add padding inside the shoulders to center them have to add another spacer to the top shoulder plate to keep them from sagging.

Still working on the Knight and Mando variant helmets

I would have thought a wool or fleece like material would be used for the pants and under suit? Looking at the pictures it also looks like the material around the neck looks similar to like what turtlenecks are made out of and could be a bit more maroon in color. Kind of a fuzzy kind of material it looks like or a really thick spandex.

Nope, hires photos show that it is a textured shiny material.

From what I see, there are some deficiencies that do not match the established visual references. The leather underneath does not match the dark red pebbled fabric, the lower "robes" and gloves are an incorrect colour as they do not match the rest of the costume....

While this is an amazing job for a first attempt, there is still much work to be done before we ever get to looking at a CRL
