More on the wonderful Patriot Armor

Matt Poitras, the creator of the amazing armor and the owner of MP Filmcraft, has more information about the Patriot Armor on his website. Here’s what he has to say about this project on his site:

Only a true patriot can wear this armor. Inspired by Roman-influenced monuments and sculptures in Washington, DC. This one is American-themed Roman armor that George Washington would have strapped on himself. It features 13 large stars that represent the first 13 colonies and another 37 smaller stars to make a total of 50. Red skirting and red and white striped cape. Features Stephen Colbert coin with “Truthiness” embossed on it. Also features Stephen Jr. eagle with STC brass initials.

I received an e-mail from Matt today, and he said that he just finished the Colbert helmet, and will send pics very soon, and send more information about the armor. We’re looking forward to it, Matt!

Here are some photos that are featured on Matt’s web site. I love how in this first shot, you can see the “Truthiness” on the medallion, and see the profile of Colbert clearly.

    Nice! I love the “STC” underneath the eagle.

    Great work, Matt. This particular uberfan salutes you!

  2. I was definitely born in the wrong eon.

    That is truly a stunning piece of craftsmanship. Love the detail, which was not visible on TV. And he looks at least as good in it as Stephen did. Maybe better. (I kid, I kid!) (Maybe I’m a little serious.) ::ducks and runs::

  3. Fantastic work, the medallion is phenomenal. I hope to see this on the Report again soon, and impatiently wait for pics of the helmet!

    Meow House– depends on your gender. Being born male might’ve been okay. If you weren’t a slave. And didn’t get exposed as a baby.

    I love all the little details!

  7. That really is an incredible piece of art…

    The level of detail in amazing. It’s clear that a lot of thought and work went into this. To see it on the show must have been very gratifying :)

    The medallion looks like it could replace FDR on the dime.
