    Re: Newly Ordered Boba Armor

    Ive owned evos armour and all i can say is becarefull with it dude ..for this reason is it easly breaks and cracks ,my neck collar snpped in half ,not sure why ..but anyways it was a good starting point ,i found thats the chest armour itself is not exactly accurate in dimentions and semed smaller when i had the armour !!
    Another tip you might wanna consider is that the slots for a chest display are too small also ,so you might wanna sort them out yourself .
    I later sold it back on ebay later on and luckly some trooper from the 501st in italy was pleased with buying my evo armour

    Thanks for the information, stormshadow2100; i was looking at his stuff for an inexpensive alternative, but when you look at his "full costume" option, the chest armor looked quite a bit smaller than i would want, in proportion to the rest of his stuff :S Sharing your experiences with this kind of readily available fett-quipment really helps us new costumers out! Thanks!

    Re: Newly Ordered Boba Armor

    I've recently received evo-armor and I'll agree: It's very flimsy, and has inconsistencies. My LED chest piece arrived with a small crack. I figured I'd reinforce all the armor by hot gluing tupperware trash-can strips to the backs. For the price, it is a good starting point.

    Haha, considering that the line is one of the very few things Fett says in any of the movies, it may have been just some freak coincidence

    FP too, BM is fiberglass like the Evo one, that's what I said BM instead of FP, but FP is the most accurate right now, done with ABS as the real was/is.

    Re: Newly Ordered Boba Armor

    I guess FP did some fiberglass armor too ... but don´t know if he still does ...

    I guess not ...

    But the ABS one is sturdy and thick enough ... no worries there!

    FP still has the molds for fiberglass armour. Send him a PM, can't hurt but to ask.

    But these moulds are of his V.1 armour, now he's selling the V.3. If it's not a problem ask him for sure!

    I was amazed by Bobamaker. Think I will buy the whole thing there!

    part of me really wants to get wickedbeard armor once the fpv2 i've got starts to give out. metal armor is really appealing.
