    This thread should be a sticky once all the parts have been posted. It would be helpful for people that aren't sure which maker has parts that would fit them the best.

    I'll have more side by side comparisons when some commissions come in. Should have it all pretty much covered besides some of the older items no longer around. The more help the better. Feel free to post something if you have something that can help.

    It's getting to the point where they're all so similar. I'd message redkraytdragon about his v1 armor. It's more on the larger size.

    Your place looks like my place SA, just a few less Fett pieces .

    We used to have quite a few good comparison threads when I was starting out on Fett. Great work so far. This will definitely help people visualize what they may need size wise.

    . I hope to further make it like your place in SA with some more Fett pieces lol. And thank you. I'm hoping this thread will turn out well enough to help some.

    I'll have to send you a set of my V3 so you can compare it size wise with the others.
    Also, I've since resculpted the V2 backplate for more accuracy (the mold broke within the last month), so that one pictured is no longer what I offer.
    Great info and pics, thanks for taking the time to post this up

    Is there a difference between Bobamakers Empire helmet and his ROTJ? I'm talking size not paint.

    That would help immensely.

    Size wise its very similar to Bobamaker v3 and Fettprides latest armor. Especially in the chest pieces. ABS plastic just like the screen used armor.

    Heres RKD's thread for more information on his armor. > http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f31/i...ailable-41814/

    I was curious if you still offered your older armor for larger people too?

    Such a fantastic thread. Curious to see what else comes up in comparison. This should be a huge help for new members or those who've been out of the fett world for a few years. Whats available now is certainly pretty different then what was out a few years ago.

    I think he uses the same helmet for both ESB/ROTJ as far as I know. Some people can request to have the "pinch" removed, so he might have made a separate mold for that. But you could ask him to be sure. His email is bobamaker@gmail.com

    Yeah your definitely right. Accuracy among makers is becoming so refined that there isn't going to be just one best armor out there. It's going to be what fit's you properly. Since the difference in chest pieces and all the fully visable pieces are mere inches off from one another, if that. I can see people mixing and matching perhaps in the future.

    The older armor sets are generally larger. Same with some of the helmets. I'd see if RKD still offers his older sets. They're perfect for larger fetts.

    The pinch in the brow, in the visor area. I don't know if he has a separate ESB helmet mold. I'd ask him though.



    Thanks everybody for the positive feedback. Hopefully we can keep the ball rolling and cover mostly everything. We have enough obsessed fett fans here itching for perfection.

    Kinda. Certain pieces are different. As for chest armor sizing, RKD's v3 breast plate pieces aren't as "long" as Bobamakers if that makes sense but very similar in size. It is larger than FP v4 chest plates. I haven't had the chance to handle RKD's new v3 backplate yet.

    Actually what you've got there Michael is what I personally refer to as my V2.1 (large) kit which is my revised V2 after my V3 (medium/studio scale)...it's the same sculpt only larger for the bigger dudes. That backplate was the last piece of the V2.1 kit that I needed to fix. Here's a comparison pic of the two backplates -
