    Is it worth the money to buy from him in the US?
    YES.

    I currently own all his armor and his jet pack.

    I have on order his newly revised armor pieces.

    He is a pleasure to deal with!

    I just received all of his soft parts and they are top quality. The jump suit fits like a glove.

    I order all hard armor, a helmet, shin tools, and a :jet pack from BM. I also took advantage of his offer to paint all of the items I purchased. If ya ask me, even if ya live in the U.S., his items and paint jobs are worth every cent and every minute of the wait.

    Re: BobaMaker- Worth the money?

    Just to add,

    I received my JP over the weekdend and its AMAZING!!

    I will be using the screen accuate harness attachment method and BM redesigned the back of the JP to eliminate the slot openings and reinforced the interior to handle the added stess...w/o even having to ask

    I have owned the RA and MLC jp's in the past but the search ends with BM's jp...well worth the extra $$$ IMO.

    Best of luck to ya...DAZ

    Re: BobaMaker- Worth the money?

    All this talk about bobamaker is very encouraging indeed. I plan on purchasing the majority of my costume from his site as well. Luckily my birthday is coming up ^_^ so if I order soon I'm sure I'll get my armor in time (april).

    Re: BobaMaker- Worth the money?

    So did he alter it for your jet pack or is that how it is going to be from now on?

    B'M' is great guy and I recommend him as well.
    He's trust worthy and his armor among other
    things is top notch.
    He notifies you when your product/purchase has been
    completed and shipped.

    I've been doing a lot of research and BM seems to be the best out there. I can't wait to get started on ordering my stuff from him. I just have a few more projects I need to complete on my DeLorean "Serenity" before I start my BF project.

    TxFett....
    The atleration that DAZ did for me was at my request.

    For anyone who is on the fence about who's JP to go with...I can only say on my behalf it was the JP for me but rest assured that you would not regret the purchase.

    Cheers,

    Ya might wanna order now. It usually takes about 2-3 months before your order is complete. So by the time you’re done with the projects you’re workin’ on, the armor will be there shortly.

    Re: BobaMaker- Worth the money?

    No doubt Daz makes some great stuff but I had a question about the prices listed on his site. For example take this Deluxe Listed Helmet:

    http://www.bobamaker.co.uk/Helmet_Deluxe.html

    It's $230 and another $33 to have shipped. Okay $266 gotcha.

    Now above the USD price is the price in euros which is 120. Which we now go ahead and run through this currency converter:

    http://www.xe.com/ucc/

    ((I'm not going to list the converted price here))

    I don't mean to bash I'm just honestly confused so please don't take this the wrong way I truly admire Daz's work and he's a great and nice guy. I was simply wondering if anyone else had ever noticed this either.

    (The shipping price is perfectly understandable as prices can soar for overseas.. i know personally... I've shipped to Japan on many occasions... eesh...)

    Anywho, cheers.

    Well the reason I would have to wait is money reasons. It's going to cost me about $1500 and labor to do my exhaust system and another $500 for door launchers and security system. My wife is about to kill me with that alone so I am going to have to wait to spend another $1200 or what ever it's going to take to get started on the BF outfit. So if I have to wait until next yr to get started on it then so be it. I wish I could get started on it now. Been waiting a long time to start doing this but had other priorities I needed to get done.
