    Chronicles Of Riddick Camo

    Post by panzerwerk on Fri May 04, 2012 8:52 pm

    T-block set made by Royal Tiger , these sets were used in the Chronicles Of Riddick , they were the uniforms wore by the Slam guards on the planet Crematoria ,they are the only set made with the waist adjustment tabs and shoulder epaulettes. Sadly in the movie , they are so dirty , you can hardly see the pattern , but when they are running in the tunnels to the hanger ,you see it well !

    Whoa! I saw that movie years ago and I don't remember that. Pretty cool.

    Someone just snagged a real T-Pat set up on Germany eBay. The asking price was somewhere around $750, but the seller was taking offers so it's unclear how much it actually sold for.

    Ah, $600. I forgot that the actual price paid is displayed. I think the seller did pretty well at that price.

    Average. That's what they usually go for on ebay.

    Did you find them in Burbank? I swear man, there were so many times I wanted to go up there and rummage, but I never did. I have few regrets since I moved, but that's definitely one of them.

    There's some serious "Attack Ships on Fire" flavor to these. Well Done!

    Really? Well, of course really... It's just, years ago-- like ten years ago, I'd found stuff from Starship Troopers on an ebay listing, and tracked it down (they were also selling desks from Gattaca, if that tells you anything). It was the prop shop out there... "Reel Clothes," or something like that. "Reel" something or other. I ran across it en route to Silpak, to buy rubber for a job, and didn't have time to stop.

    If you haven't been there, I'd recommend going, just so you can tell me if it is worth it...

    But, for yourself-- it prolly wouldn't hurt. Greater odds of finding something unique than at Monsters in Motion.

    I stay away from Props in general , all these years working in the movie biz ,I have had plenty of cool props , still have a couple , but after making the monsters for awhile , it loses the magic , at least for me , I have traded off most of my stuff except some items that might fall into my Militaria collecting , and some of the guns I have used on set , other then that ,I steer clear .

    Awww....

    Not really.

    I was inclined to say something similar at first, about how I don't aim for those things so much anymore, but it kept sounding wrong. Insulting. Not what I intended.

    It is something that I always tell prospective employers, and most of them look at me funny when I do. The philosophy of "do what you love" is all well & good, until you realize that you don't love it anymore because it is *work*.

    Alas, I did not work much in props. A little bit-- but rock bands have a way of abusing things to the point where detail is irrelevant, and function is key (hard lesson learned).

    I did action figures. For a while. I neither collect nor play with, anymore.

    Seems like a cool job until you do it for a while-- and then it is a *JOB*.

    Same goes for fux1ng Defense Contracting, too, I am afraid. I've settled on data. I don't love it or hate it, it just pays the bills.

    Yup , Action figures is my job most of the time now , the movie biz is slow ,too slow right now , last thing I did was a commercial for ATT , My first commercial , everything else I have done is features or a couple TV shows , but oh well , its nice to stay home and work , at least orders are coming in at a steady rate , keeps the bills paid and a little left over for camo LOL .

    I can imagine how "Rockstars" are , I will leave it at that , probably worse then some of the young actors I have to deal with ...

    Indeed!

    And then, there's the RW stuff you don't see. The "ammo" for the Morita rifles in Starship Troopers was bars of soap.

    I do know what it is like-- the "SORT IT OUT QUICK!" mentality.

    Rockstars... well, it is appropriate you put it in quotes.

    And... do you work for the comics companies any? I won't name-drop, because it is bad form, but some of those folks I worked with. Also Palisades, when they existed, and Henson, long after Jim died.

    It was... very, very stressful, but also addictive. 18 to 20 hour days, until you become insane, and at the end of the day-- you're still beholden, because "who else gets to do this?"

    You have my complete understanding-- and *respect*. You persisted, where I could not.

    Appreciate it , but I do not do it full time anymore , as you already stated , the sanity is soon lost , I started in Special Effects , but as you may know , there is no union and evey 16 year old wants your job making monsters and will work at half the price , they dont care how good they are , its all about bottom line , so I moved into on set Props (some call it Hand props) and went to work on features , I like to do one or 2 shows a year to justify my Union Dues LOL , but just could not do it full time anymore , to old and just dont care about the money as much as I did when I was younger.

    I never did the comics thing ,although I did work for about 10 years in a couple shops doing Natural History type things including dinosaurs ,I got a fun trip to Japan out of that one !!
    Anyway now its mostly my home Business working in the garage , like I said it pays the bills ,and I much prefer being my own boss,except I cant blame anyone else when things go wrong LOL ..

    Well, like I said-- bigup! (I was going to say "props," but that's just stupid).

    Anybody who can do it deserves respect.
