    Thank you for your compliments Vod's!


    I do plan on doing a run on these, I just need some advice from all of you what would be a fair price to charge?

    What does a normal sized Bucket go for "raw" & "completed"?

    I don't like charging ridiculous prices for My work, I'm not greedy, so any help in price range would be grateful.
    Note the price we decide on wont include S/H.

    I guess most helmets (BM, FP, TF or Sgt. Fang) range around 150-250$ depending on many things like quality, accuracy and materials used.

    maybe you should set a price between the most dedicated helmet makers around and twist it down for the size of your child-helmet (e.g. if itīs 2/3 of the original size = 2/3 of the price you set for a helmet)

    something this way. You should keep in mind that this depends on the material you use for the helmets too.

    just my 2 cents. ;-)

    Hope it helps.

    You should not forget to charge any amount you need for the time you put into this. Donīt keep yourself too short on this. Your work is outstanding!

    Cheers,
    Manuel

    I've never made a Mando suit before in My life...

    Hi! I'm new... My name is Thomas a few years ago I made a Snake Eyes costume for myself for Halloween and since then improved on it finding out I have a nack for this kind of thing & last year I decided I wasn't doing what I wanted to do with My life so I learned a few new skills and did a lot of R&D and started Making stuff...

    And here I am today...

    Crazy as ever....

    So I was thinking 100$ + S/H >>>>>>>THIS IS NOT A SALES THREAD!
    If an admin has an issue with Me putting this price here I will gladly remove it. Thank you.

    Fantastic work. I'm in Queen Creek, AZ. Not to far to the east of you. I would definitely pick up a kids helmet. Like most have said, you ingenuity is remarkable. Definitely setting the bar kinda high for us Dads here. My son would go crazy for something like that....if I could ever get him out of that stupid Black Spiderman costume he always wants to wear.

    Thank you! Nice to meet you. Life is not about competition it's about expressing yourself and using the tools you have to do so.
    I tell you what when I cast them up I'll drive it to you and meet you in person because My X & son live out there and I'm in your hood every week. My son have a cheesy Optimus prim suit from Halloween that wears all the time... It's a faze, I can assure you if you got him a bucket that fit him he would loose the spidey suit.

    I have to say you are one of the most creative prop makers i have ever seen online.You are a credit to the Prop community and an even bigger credit to your family.I have 3 sons,but unfortunately neither is a big enough Star Wars fan to warrant me making them a costume-although im still working on my lad Sonny who is only 17 months

    Top marks for being a great dad aswell as a great prop maker.
