    I've been waiting for it. I guess they were going for the SE promo because they put a hose on the left gaunt missle. Anything worth salvaging other then the helmet, probably not. I am curious on how the boots look close up along with the shin tools. I love how they leave the right gauntlet unclosed for the accurate look

    Wonder how many people are going to try and apply for membership in Mercs with this thing. Even if it's made to be a custom...it needs some major work.

    For a halloween costume it doesnt look all that bad. It should be no where near that price though. At least it has decent chest armor spacing not like the cluttered oversized look most customs go with.

    Eh, "most" no..."some" yes.

    Reminds me of that Rubies ST armor that was an epic failure also. If your just gonna buy it for a haloween costume, your better off using trash can armor.

    The sad thing is, they are out of stock so someone's buying them. Good find Darren.

    How can they ask $900 for that? Maybe a hundred, maybe.

    Dude... Are you aware of how much love and attention was put into making it look that "wrong"? Easily worth 2K!!

    You know, for an average person doing a quick Halloween costume, that would be awesome!

    On a different note... how the heck can they charge so much for it?

    Definately! I would be stoked about having an armor like that before I got "educated"

    AHHGG! . Now how about some weathering on that costume. I guess if it would've been in the market lets say about 10 years ago, well then it might have been an awesome costume to have. However for that price range oh geeeee....

    the sad thing is, the designers must be really hard core star wars nerds, and outlined an incredible suit design, then the rubies crackpot approval team said, "It's nice, but I don't want to spend more then $10 on it"

    "Whats going to be the sale price?"

    "I don't want little kids wearing this for halloween next year, so let's make it $900 for my amuesment"

    I was just going to say, that IT REALLY ISN'T THAT BAD

    For $900, it's bad. For $199.99 .. not so much

    Well, if that's an MR helmet, and it certainly looks like it, then that's half of the price of the whole thing. They just need to shave about $400 off the total price and it might be worth it. Might. That is, if you don't care about much about accuracy. Unfortunately for Rubies, there prolly aren't many who don't care about accuracy AND are willing to pay $900 for a costume. Usually when you are pushing $1000 people start caring about accuracy. Usually.

    Rubies costumes never look like what's in the picture. Interested on seeing the final product.
