  1. Sep 24, 2009, 7:45 PM - Metal gaunts for Boo boo, and cr4nky #1

    Figured I would just combine these in one thread.First off guys sorry for the wait.It has been a busy year for me , so I appreciate the patience.
    First are Boo boo's ROTJ, and next are Cr4nkys ESB.
    They still need the inside padding , but other than that they are just about ready to ship.I also have to add the little detail on the ESB lanyard launcher in the front.

    You guys are getting a real piece of art! I've had mine for going on 2 years now, and I wouldn't trade them for any other type of gaunt you can buy.

    wow... $200 in customs fees!?!?!?! whatever happened to "gift, $20 value" ?
  19. Oct 16, 2009, 3:13 PM - Re: Metal gaunts for Boo boo, and cr4nky #19

    Well I do not like to send things like this out without insurance,because I do not trust the mail service.I have had things get damaged in transit.And if you insure it for the cost, and claim it is worth $20 they tend to suspect some fishiness.
    However, some countries do not allow insurance for some reason and in these cases I do keep the value low, but I always mark it as gift.

    Itīs better to be safe than sorry when possible.

    The gaunts are getting their first public appearance this weekend. Iīll post some pics in the Sarlacc Pit when I get them

    I didn't even think about the fact that the hinges are not accurate. It's definitely worth it for the metal gaunts though! Can't wait to get mine.

    ***, those ESB gauntlets are incredible..... :O
    I must have a set to go with my Wickedbeard armor....
    May I ask, how heavy are these? I guess the more you wear these, the better they will look with all the natural wear and tear.....

    UK customs.... ekkkk
