I've spent a little more then a year and a half on this suit, went with the top parts, found parts as much as I could, and a lot of scratch built all over the place. Did all the paint, assembly, electronics, and finishing myself. Helmet is a FP budget from Asok, and has a self contained voice amp/modulator with speaker (using the holes in the bordon connector) and mic. Also has a servo board for a working RF, with flashing red and solid green leds. Armor is RKD as well as gauntlet halves, Fettronics 2 stage chest lights, gauntlet arming light, laser sight in top flame tube and led pilot light in lower. Jetpack is a MoW with working beacon, and diffused lights in each thruster (self contained) the blaster is a heavily modified Hasbro I gutted but kept the electronics for, scratch built the rest of it other then the scope and T track (Blastech) Got my 501st approval in February, BH13138, and my first con this past month, dying to get out again!! A LOT of thanks is due to this site and its awesome reference and members who make the best parts around!
