    Sep 19, 2014, 3:24 PM - Complete Boba Fett armor, from head to toes, ready to wear. Where to find ? #1

    Hi,

    as the title say i am looking for a complete Boba Fett armor, with soft and hard parts, "ready to wear".

    I already had a quotation from RS Props Master, but as i don't know the built quality / prices of other "shops", i would like to get your precious recommendations.

    I am not against buying my future armor part by part, but as i live in France, sending multiple packages from several locations would make me pay a lot of shipping costs and fees... That is why i would like to do it as simple as possible, at the best possible quality.

    Thank you for your help !

    RS props would be your best bet probably. Except I'd get the hard parts from Fettpride(helmet/armor/gaunts) and have someone else paint them. Chris(FP) always has a backlog but no ones gear is as nice.
    You could also check out Bobamaker, he does the entire suit as well. Either one you'd need around a year on though. This stuff takes mucho tiempo due to backlog and craftsmanship.

    Well iyou go right to the point, that is exactly what i heard about Fettpride and Bobamaker. I didn't expect i would have to wait for one year though, but it could be a good point as i see the complete armor is very expensive.

    About prices, i saw that a Boba armor is a lot more expensive than a snowtrooper's one, why is it ? Is it harder to craft ?

    Thank you by the way

    You could also keep a close watch on The Cargo Hold section. From time to time a member offers a complete Boba Fett costumes.
    Of course it is uncertain when this is going to happen again in the future and most of these offers are from people in the USA which makes the shipping a bit difficult/expensive.

    The armor itself is no harder to make than snowtrooper armor. Both are vac formed ABS. It's the helmet that's fiberglass or resin on Boba. There's just a lot more to the total Boba costume than just armor.

    Agree with Syllander. The bounty hunters are some of the most expensive costumes because of the amount of details involved. Vader and C-3P0 are also among the most expensive. Really though...the amount you spend all really depends on how much detail and accuracy you want to achieve in the end. Stormtroopers I think are fairly average for cost...around $1200 for a decent trooper. But say you want to have metal details on your blaster, and modify for some improvements, that all costs more money.

    Also keep in mind Snowtrooper armor requires next to no painting, where finished boba fett armor costs a lot more if you hire someone to do it for you. A painted jetpack alone could go for $675,
