What a fantastic idea! I think the details of the print came out great, my only gripe is the bulkiness of his physique (he should be more like a bodybuilder) might be a restriction of the printing process tho. I hope you share your future printing projects too, pretty cool to see the process.

To Psyk0:

This was mentioned before in a previous post but since my account at imageshack expired the images aren't available anymore.
When i was making the character i matched the body underneath the costume to a photo of David Prowse and if i were to remove the complete helmet you would see that his head is a lot smaller making his body seem bigger, i also used as a reference the Darth Vader made by Blur Studio and i would say it looks pretty close to that plus i also tried to make him wider but it made him look weird with all the elements on top.
Next i need to print the cape and it will make him look different so that might fix the problem and will make him look more menacing.

To sacboi:

Thanks man, really appreciate it.

Got some metallic Citadel Leadbelcher paint from someone at work and painted all the metal parts with it and i ordered some grey paint as well for the armour, should be arriving this week.

A quick update, been super busy with projects and work but managed to 3d print the cape and decided to split it into 2 parts due to it's size and print time.
If you guys want to see more 3d prints i've done check out my twitter bellow.
Cheers

you should use a heatgun to straight out the lightsaber beam.

Hey Scote, didn't know a heatgun could be used on a electroluminescent wire the fact is that it's just like a normal wire and i need something to harden it to a straight line, i was thinking of using a transparent pen cover to hold it's shape.
