I've done this, and I didn't like that the capes don't fit right.

Ok on your avatar Rex (thats the clone's name) is wearing a skirt, THAT is a kama. They are also called, waist capes, command skirts, and belt capes. There origin lies with the Mandaloriens, and more specifically, the Supercommandos. ARC troopers were the first to wear them to symbolize rank and the overall "specialness" of an ARC trooper. Later other clones wore them as rank symbols as well. By the end of the war they were worn to symblize rank, specialty units, highly regarded/decorated units, or as a personalised armor accesory.

It's some kind of clothing around the legs, you se ARc troopers wearing it.


And astoria, the problem with that is that the capes bend over to the back eh? I made some myself, they do the same. That can be fixed but then the torso is way too high above the legs...

Laughing Too many 'P's! Laughing

That's a neat way to make a kama, but it leaves the front and back revealed, unfortunately. Sad I use a cape or two pauldrons when I need a kama... Whitey

Yeah, and as Rook said the capes don't fit well at all and it makes them fit loosely on a minifig's neck. Mad

I'm just gonna wait until the CW kamas come... Blue Arc

Here are my pros and cons about the new CW kamas:

PROS
-they're plastic, so they won't rip easily
-made for play

CONS
-flexibility may be limited
-you may not be able to sit them down

Tough, tough decision. I am leaning toward liking them, but I'll have to see them in action first. Blue Arc

They are plastic, ABL, it's been confirmed by some people who went to the Toyfair.

I was wondering about CC's purist kama: What if one were to take four of those capes and put them on the figure's legs, side and back? Or would it too heavily tax the hole? :scratch:

Because the pieces are so thick, it would make it so you couldn't connect the legs back onto the fig, and even if you were able to re-assemble the fig, he'd be a lot taller... Smile Blue Arc

I would have to say I would agree with Rook on the plastic kamas! I also prefer them over cloth! however, I do believe that the pauldrons for the troopers should be cloth or plastic-y. Perhaps a material similar to the old Ninja Flags.

Really? The cloth is more accurate and looks better. Wink Blue Arc
