I know OSDW require canon weapons, but I hadn't given much thought yet to which weapon, specifically, I would go for, until I saw this:

http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=46071.0

I bought it.   ;D  Now, I know technically it's not 'screen' canon, but it is LFL canon...  is that close enough?

By canon, we were thinking more along the lines of the loose catch-all canon of the entire SW 'verse, although I'd have to say that it should be era-specific; as in, something that existed during the time of the DW, TM turf war. More Falin's area of expertise than mine, but as long as there's something somewhere giving a name for that thing, or something even vaguely visually similar, suggesting that it's from that era or earlier, I'm perfectly fine with it.

Well, I do think the era is correct--  'Supertrooper' is Boba Fett, essentially, so it'd be around the time of the Fetts that weapon was in use.  Considering Open Seasons takes place, lets say, about 30 years before ESB that would make the weapon well within its functional lifetime (plenty of guns have been used for 50/100 years, especially if they are family heirlooms.)

I did a little research on TDH about the gun:

"Also seen in these photos is Boba Fett's "Automatic Blaster" or "Laser submachinegun" as note by ben Burtt, which is a replica Uzi, with a glaflex flash tube for the barrel."

Here's a bunch pf pics of the weapon:

So I guess it's not specifically named within the universe, but it's definitely a Mando heritage item.  ;)

Fair enough; if the App Team will pass it as a CRL-approve-able weapon (which I'm sure they will), I'm willing to let it pass as a relevant weapon for DW use.

More progress!  ...Almost done, actually.   ;D

Pics of torso rig below.  Some notes:
- I don't have the boba thong installed yet, so the cod is flapping out WAY far.  That'll be addressed, of course.
- I have a balaclava to conceal all my hair.
- There is a complete back plate under the cape.
- The cape fabric is AMAZING.  It's a deep green natural weave wool, so there's a bunch of off shade fibers mixed in, and the edges are naturally frayed.  It is a real-world cape fabric, so it's very rich and deep and functional looking.
- Girth belt has an additional belt to cinch around the back, but I left it downstairs when I took the pics.  :P

This is fantastic stuff Arden!

I'm looking forward to more pics from you :D

Finished and approved.  Say hello to Tyr Fisk, the FIRST OSDW in the MMCC!  (That sentence makes no sense to anyone outside of this club, lol)
