    That looks great, and for 3 years ago, it hold up VERY well to todays fetts, you should be proud. And looks like your at full force for making a new one. Good for you and look forward to seeing it.

    Wow, it was really something! Great pics. I would still be banging my head if I had sold an outfit like that.

    Jose,

    Nope, I sold the whole thing to Dark Shadow, including a mannequin.

    Take my advice, dont do it. The ONLY positive thing I can think of is that the available parts are better now than when I assembled mine.
    But I lost all of that time painting, looking for the RS paints, trimming, sewing, braiding, etc. etc.

    I think I am the only one I know who DOSNT regret selling his suit. I just couldnt be happy with it based on the fact that it was made to fit me and not the size of the real fett... so it was like staring at a 7 foot tall Fett in my office... just bugged me.

    MAN it does seem like yesterday when you put up your Boba and Jango! Time lost for assembly and painting is a real beyotch even though parts have come a long way in the past three years.

    I just got an offer on my ESB over at the RPF that I half entertained.....funny thing is of all my full costumes, the Boba is the only one I'd really want to keep and here it's the only one I've been asked to sell

    With your sentiments of extreme regret, I think I'll be holding on to mine.
