    If this is out of form, I apologize. It seems you routinely read of this or that person's gear that they make but I'm having trouble with the proper process for actually engaging/finding those folks and getting pricing etc.

    I tried messaging Cruzer but haven't heard back. Can anyone direct me to particular members who currently make child size Boba helmets and gauntlets? I'm trying to put things together and make what I can but these two items specifically I'm pretty hesitant on. Thanks.

    I'd love to know how much to get these. Specifically the gauntlets. I'm making a set for my son, but I KNOW they aren't going to be as spectacular as I'd like them to be.

    I don't always find time to reply to messages when I'm swamped with orders and real life, so my apologies. Fortunately I happen to have a finished set of the kid sized parts I make on hand to snap a pic of. Unfortunately, I have a 2-3 month wait on any new orders Child size gauntlets, helmet...

    Thanks for the reply. How about you sell me that set and then let the next guy wait the 2-3 months?
    Kidding aside, thanks for letting me know. I appreciate it. Of course won't work for Halloween but I'll see how we do and keep it in mind. They look fantastic.

    Thanks buddy. The helmet already has a small owner and those gauntlets are the masters for Boba, or else I would. Your best bet given your close time frame is probably something over the counter. You could also consider posting a wanted thread in the cargo hold. Good luck on your build and let me know if I can help down the road.

    You bet. Been admiring your stuff since I've joined here. As I've been working on my projects (Jango for me and child sized Boba for the boy) I've been utilizing info from your builds extensively. Due to my abilities, funds, and time frame my stuff is not going to be up to par for what routinely gets posted here but it is a fantastic resource for anyone trying to even get remotely close to accurate.

    As far as over the counter options, I really don't know of any. Do you? I'd potentially be interested in any child-size choices you know of.

    I know I'm new here and please don't think i"m attempting to hijack especially since Cruzer's products are crazy on point, but a friend and I are in the process of building Boba / Mando armor for our 11 & 12 year olds. I'm in the process of completing Vac- bucks for the Knees, Gaunts, and Jetpack. I'm trying to knock out some pulls in the next week or so, and I'll be able to tell if the extras are worth offering up.

    That vacform armor sounds perfect given the fact fiberglass armor can be too rigid and heavy.

    By "over the counter" I meant the pre made kids costumes since it sounded like you were trying to get suits built in time for Halloween for both you and your son. Your suit alone is going to require plenty of work/time investment between now and the end of the month.

    Staying away from the store bought stuff if at all possible and been working on various aspects for a few weeks now. Checking into the above mentioned armor and maybe something will work out. Thanks for the continued input.
