My name is Russ. I am a fan of the Mandalorian culture and obviously Boba Fett is my favorite Star Wars character second only to an Ewok. And ESB is my all time favorite movie of both trilogies and that is second only to The Phantom Menace. I kid... No seriously, I was joking. Anyways, I am inspired by what the 501st do and I guess I was living in a "cave" full of Mynoks for many moons. So of course I want to get a canon ESB Armor so I can join the Guild. I have sent a couple messages to Fettpride.com via Facebook cause I heard he is the best at what he does. But if anyone has suggestions on another US based maker then by all means feel free to let me know. I am also on Mando Mercs and have the resources to get all the soft parts and had even asked a guy who made metal armor but he was kind enough to tell me its not thick enough for 501st standards and Bobamaker would be pretty expensive being shipped from the UK. Im a strong guy and would sport metal armor all day long but seems pvc is the armor material thats best suited. Cool by me... so again any other suggestions would be appreciated.
And in the future, it may not be 501st passable, but I would love to slowly start building my own armor in the form of Canderous Ordo. Hes a pretty gnarly dude even if he is off a video game.
Anyways, nice to meet the lot of you fellow hunters.
