After talking with Honker about MB armor I ended up finding this... Build Your Own Boba Fett <<Introduction>>
Thought this was awesome and wanted to share
LOL I remember looking at this a few years ago...
When I was in college (1997-2000), most of my parts were from Mark Bradley. It was great stuff!
Richie's Armor supplied my backplate and codpiece, and Goldenarmor supplied my rifle.
I had a few Don Post helmets (1 '95, 2 '97s).
Disneys armor is MB stuff...for the stunt show etc...I know one guy who still has a MB jetpack and loves it even though there are more accurate available now...
I'm new to the costuming/prop world and love the history.. I'm getting some MB armor from Honker and a jet pack with some MB parts... excited!! .. on another note ...i love the Chewbacca in the Gallery section
That was THE website years before TDH even existed. I read that thing many times "back in the day", and ordered my Mark Bradley armor set when I first built my Boba costume in 1999. While all my armor is now Fettpride, to this day I'm still trooping with Bradley's shin tools and yes, his version 1 vacuumformed jetpack as shown on that website. Someday I will get a new jetpack since it's the last big piece I have yet to upgrade.....but it still works. Weighs about 9 pounds and doesn't have cool sharp looking piano keys, but it still looks like a jetpack to people. I did my first Boba event at a comic con in October 1999, so I've been trooping that same pack for almost 14 years now.
Full set of all armor with resin knee darts, shin tools and chest/shoulder stickers, as well as the jetpack...ran $315.
Here's a picture of the jetpack, taken just over 2 months ago. The armor is Fettpride and the helmet is a Marrow Sun version 3 fiberglass. The helmet in my avatar pic is my old Don Post '96 - which even after the avatar pic was taken, I got a correct Fettpride ROTJ rangefinder and earcap for. Boba's are never done, as we all know too well.

I glad people are enjoying this... i'm really enjoying reading all these post ^^^^
Wow this post is bringing me back. My first kit was from Bradley and those two sites were about all there was for reference guides and buying stuff.................**** I'm getting old.
I'm now on to my third suit and I'm glad this place is here. Should make it easier this time. Wish I never sold the first two. Oh well, Third times the charm.
Way before TDH it was THE source. So cool.
Yeah, I used this guys site extensively for my first Fett 10 years ago, but it never got any farther than a Don Post vinyl with great rattle can paint job! lol

On second thought, maybe it was that Jon Skaines site!
It had to start somewhere I guess, it makes it look all so simple
