Here's some pics of my film used Starship Troopers Mobile Infantry uniform.
Pretty much everything in this uniform was custom made. The webbing pouches (grenade and magazines),
knife rig and chest pouch are made by Eagle Industries. The boots are modified Adidas
hiking boots that they added the leather uppers to. The boots are the same ones worn in the
boot camp scenes, only without the uppers installed.
On with the pics!
The jacket arrived without patches. I had to sew them back on myself. The jacket had
been used in another production. I believe it was the Firefly TV series on Fox.

I actually have two MI knife rigs. I bought one about a month before I got my full MI
uniform set. The knife in this rig (like ALL the screen used rigs) is a blank piece of
Aluminium (sp?) with no real blade. I'll probably swap in one of my real throwing knives
when I get them edged.
This is a screen used Jumpball uniform. It came with Adidas branded shoes and shirt, a pair of gloves,
a set of hockey shoulder pads and a Jofa hockey helmet with custom decals. Pretty next set really and comfortable
to wear. Also a very reasonably priced movie prop/costume.
And No, I was not there and Yes, I DID photoshop myself into the scene. ^_^
A couple of screen shots showing the uniform in use.
These are not screen used, but they ARE the same make and model of the gloves worn
by the Mobile Infantry in the film Starship Troopers. They're a football linemans/receiver
gloves. Leather and textile with velcro closure wrist brace. They're also out of production, but can
still be found for between $45-$55 in new condition. Of course, you can buy the screen used ones for
$50 plus shipping... you make the call. I paid $48 shipped for mine. These are an XL, and fit me very nicely.

I also have some throwing knife blanks. I still need to put an edge on them and will do it sometime soon.
Based on the Blackjack throwing knife, they do fit in the knife rig, but are VERY snug.
