Hello all I have been watching you very closely...
Over the years I have been looking at this site, 501st and a few others but never really got involved in the forums because of not having time with school and work. I have finally decided to start a build. Boba and Tusken have been my two choices when building. I know the cost and what is needed to do something like this and my main problem I know I'm going to run into is my size. Not much meat on my bones I'm afraid. I usually see things in the large or medium range. Anyone that is a small have a finished build so I can see what mine will look like. Also anyone with a PP2 red/yellow arm Boba build. That is my favorite due to the color scheme. Not sure if that is going to be the build of my choice due to the amount of work I will have to put worth making my own props like the flame thrower spring. It's a hard choice picking which Boba to do.
Well a little about me. My name is Trevor and I live in the Orlando area in Florida. Went to Celebration and Star Wars Weekend last times. Planning on going this year too and would like to meet you guys. I've been a Star Wars guy my whole life and when I was in 12th grade I wore a Star Wars shirt ever single day of the school year. Bet won. I'm not one of those guys that is interested in a build for 5 mins. I've been looking online for years. I have read your thoughts about some of the cheap ebay guys and I plan on buying most of my stuff from you guys when I get the money. Stuff ain't cheap! Going to start with a helmet and I looked at a few members helmets and I will be buying within a month or so probably (if you will sell to a new member that is). Like I said I'm in school and go to Valencia College for Graphic Design and I'm towards the end of my first AS degree and will be starting my Web Degree next semester hopefully.
Would love to hear about yours builds, local people, and meet ups.
