Smits found hers at the Unclaimed Baggage store in scenic Scottsboro Alabama.  Along with the bonehead helmet that is close enough. 

I will update my original statement to "I will attempt to make the parts tonight" since it is looking like another 12+ hour workday.

I was helping a friend with some stuff out in his shop yesterday... his son has the same helmet. :)

No pic update:
Shoulders were made out of 45degree 3/4inch pvc pipe connectors with threaded stoppers superglued together.  They were sanded and painted white.  Then I (poorly) handwound some 16gauge wire to make the springs.   

I will be cutting the pauldrons out of pinkfoam tonight.

The puppeteer there is Tim Blaney... who also puppeteered the full-size Gypsy for Season 11.  He's also well known for being the voice of Johnny 5 and Doug the Pug from MiB!

Good point.  ;D

Man, this build is starting to feel more and more achievable.  I'm getting the itch to start building!

Smits came by, so we did a trial fitting with a spare servo head (the dome is signed by Joel so it doesnt leave the mantle):


The holes are a bit closer together in the real one. 

She also had a copy of the tour book which gave us this great shot:


Edit:
She just got confirmation that the shoulders and pauldrons will come in AFTER the convention.  So time to breakout the foam cutter, dremel, and random piping bits.

If it is a bunch of rims, then they just have them on a sleeve.  You will have limited movement, but enough for what the puppet has done.
