    My name is Shaun and I met Clint the other day which is a member here and has an ESB Boba Fett. I am looking into getting a ROTJ Boba Fett put together withing the next year. Clint has given lots of helpful advice. I will be combing over the forums this week and probably be trying to get a helmet, shoes and armor/gauntlets first. If anybody has any helpful advice, I am all ears.
    Thanks, Shaun

    Welcome to the boards, you have come to the right place and Clint has pointed you in the right direction. Look through the threads, search and don't be afraid to ask questions. As far as items go everyone has their opinion and it also depends on how much you want to spend. For the helmet, armor and gauntlets in my opinion you cannot beat FettPride's work. For shoes your only option is Man of War, for other soft parts you could go with ladysewforus or crazy4bobafett. For Jetpack there is MOW, BobyFettUK and Fettseven. I could go on if you have any question just drop me a PM, but the most important thing to remember is that building the suit takes time and patience I have been on the long road for 5 years now and I can just about see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Deadland, Thanks for the post. I have been reading a lot on the boards and checking everything out. Are the LEDs difficult to set up? I was looking at a few members costumes and saw that they had them and they looked great. I saw some people selling them, just wanted to ask first.

    Hey Shaun,

    Which LED lights are you talking about? If you are talking about the lights on the left chest armor, there are a couple of different people that makes those boards, that you just plug a battery into and attach to the inside of the armor. There is also a light on the beacon that attaches to the jetpack - a couple of options there, too.
