Several questions about parts

Postby spartan117 » Fri Feb 17, 2017 2:35 pm

Ok, so I have a few questions about what parts to use for a specific weapon I want to try and make.
I'm hoping to make a wrist mounted weapon. And the only thing I can think to do is buy some vambraces from a third party dealer and glue some binos on it to make it look like a double barreled weapon. Any thoughts? Parts you would use?

Second. I'm looking for a specific peice of heavy armor and can't find exactly what set it comes with. It's a one peice armor with a high collar, shoulder plates, and one stud in the middle of the chest. I love the look of it but can't seem to find it. I'll post a picture of its not clear what I'm talking about.

Third. What do you guys do to give a minifig a little more height? I have done the 1x2 grate peice and slap it between the legs and torso. And I was also thinking of a stud on the bottom of the feet. Anything else to make them a little larger/ more beefy?

Sorry for the wall of text. Thought it would be best to just ask all I have on my mind in one Shot.

For the first one I'm not sure there is a purist way to mount a weapon on a minifig's wrist, so yeah, vambraces and glue is probably easiest. Maybe using string to tie binos to the wrist?

For the second I can think of several parts it might be, can you post the pic?

Thirdly, I usually go with a 1x1 plate on each foot, but remember that armor and epaulets also add height, especially together.

Hope this helps some.

Yeah that does help. Thanks man

Also this is the armor. I keep seeing it but I'm not sure what sets it comes in. Image

part is from the alien avenger minifig, series 9

might be able to rig up something that looks like a wrist cannon but actually clips to the hand... it'd have to be a little bulky though
