also does anyone make full sets to order?
also does anyone make full sets to order?
full sets of what?
Full costumes top to bottom?
does anyone know anything about evolution toys/props?
Its not that great, for a full costume...theres some time to time in the cargo hold one in there right now as a matter of fact Empire Version mostly complete for cheap
yikes, well, it's not entirely a surprise to see some of the costs... I agree some people will want to be 100% screen accurate, but I'm betting 95% of the general population will not notice the minor differences that some of you pros will. (I wouldn't be surprised if several people have commented in the past on your nice stormtrooper outfit too!)
Guess I should start saving my euros!
the more i have been thinking about it and reading on here, I think maybe i need to start this hobby. Originally my thought was to find a costume already built, but you guys have inspired me to try and assemble one. I mean all the info is here and the members who have done it already are really the greatest resource. So I guess my first question is where do you think a total complete newbie should start?
Greetings all, great thread - just what I've been looking for. I've got a price list for an ESB Boba Fett that tops out at about $2600 including paints, screws, washers, samoflanges, etc. Maybe I'm missing something? Here's my basic list (no paints, hardware, etc) with suppliers' names omitted in case they don't want their prices made public:
Helmet - $170
T-Visor - $15
Flight Suit - $225
Flak Vest - $95
Neck Seal - $45
Armor - $364
Boots - $145
Gloves - $80
Belt Pouches - $45
Ammo Belt - $195
Girth Belts - ???
Cape - $30
Jet Pack - $300
Wookie Braids - $75
Shin Tools - $60
Toe Spikes - ???
Digital Chest Display - $70
Blaster and SideArm - $300
Those are the main things, but not everything, and listed in the order in which I hope to buy them, as time and money permits. If I've forgotten anything big, please feel free to let me know; I appreciate your input and advice. Thanks for reading.
Thanks a lot man. That's really helpful
Thanks for the list. I was just thinking the other day how much it was going to cost me to complete my own Boba Fett costume. I was trying to guestimate a number from compiling all the items I needed from different prices for them that I have found on this site and I came up with a number around 2500.00 US dollars. Of course the 2500.00 US dollars takes into account that I will be making some of my pieces and I will paint my own helmet. Thanks again for sharing the price list. This is very helpful.

This is an eye opener. I've been on here a while now. And I have spent around £730 ($1171) on my suit so far, with just a few bits to go:
Boots // eBay leather boots (£10) + paint
Blaster parts // wooden stock + greeblies + strap + scope mounts
Chest Light display // Bike light (£3) + printed on clear paper
Vest & Neck Seal // TDH (£68)
Wookie Braids // hair extentions (£5)
Belt Thigh Pouches // Material (£3)
Gloves // Material (£6)
So I will be close to £800 ($1290) for a convincing costume. Which isn't that bad from what I have seen. If anyone spots some mounts for the scope, holla me!
iam too scared to price mine up
This is wicked. But I don't mind. Because the overall price of just being able to wear an outfit as ****** as this will indeed be priceless.
So far, I have spent $350. Helmet, T-visor, cape, wookie braids and boot spats. So I still have a looong way to go, but I'll get there. Some money here and some money there, and eventually I'll get there. Have to stay true to the Fett!
I got my armor pieces and jet pack for 150 and they are still on the make. So, if it is as expensive as you say, there could only be two outcomes. Either I got some real ****** costume pieces or I got a really good deal for the jetpack and the armor pieces.
I just hope it's the second option. :s
I think your price list is very useful. I'm new to the dented helmet and it's good to have an idea. This site is an invaluable resource. I have to say, after many hours of reading and hunting around I have found many great sources for everything I need. I can't wait for my parts to arrive and for the build to start! I'm so happy this site exists. There's a lot of really talented and generous people on this site and I'm happy to have joined the community.
FYI - I have spent about $2000 including shipping from various locations.
Great starter thread, although upon joining this website I kind of figured it would be a very costly hobby, but none the less I am willing to do this, right now I certainly will buy part by part because of me being a student in College I don't have a whole lot of cash to throw around but I am done school in under a year and will have my career so its better to start somewhere then never at all =]
Thank you for the price lists. It is definitely costly; however, my childhood dream has been to own a quality outfit of Boba, Jango, or both. And I will stop at nothing to bring that dream to life. I will begin with Jango.
You can build/make your own parts for much less than $4000, but it will take years
The price list really gives a good impression of the money I'm about to outlay. If the cost of the list doesn't scare people away, at least it gives all the components you'll need. I came into this with about 1500 to throw at it mainly for the armour ( I already had a bucket), all the soft parts I was gonna DIY. I'd like to thank all tutorial contributors in advance for your help.
Hi, all I am new to this but wanted to start this project long ago. I would love to join the 501st with my bro but, where should I start?
New member. Bring it on TDH, you can't scare me off with this,haha. I'll just eat ramen for... years. hahaha
