    Pretty much mate. This costume is not an easy or cheap one to make/assemble by any means. Even doing most of the work yourself (i.e. assembly/painting, etc.) you'd easily be looking at $2200-$2500 or more range. It all really just depends on which vendors you decide to go with and what parts you buy from them. There's also the constant 'upgrade' battle to contend with. Good luck!

    This is a great thread. This should be cheaper to make than my droid.

    I am new here and wanted to build a Boba Fett costume for Halloween (I was very ambitious lol!)
    I knew that in order to have a proper suit I would be shelling out big money and some people had waiting lists that would not be able to deliver their goods until after Halloween. Which is totally fine, I just happened to pick a very complicated project as a costume.
    I have opted (after doing the math and research) to order the Collectors Edition costume as it will save me a ton of work and I will have an excellent starting point to add on to as I plan to have a fully screen accurate RotJ Fett suit and hopefully get into the 501st and get more active with my Cosplay friends.

    The CE suit is by no means perfect, the big plus is not having to build the rocket pack but like I said, it will be a good starting point. I should be ordering it in the next couple of days so perhaps I could post up a review.

    Look up all the threads around here about the Rubies suit before you jump in. Other guys around here have worked off it like you are thinking of doing. You are going to have to do a lot...and I mean A LOT....of work to get it up to the base accuracy level for 501st acceptance. Just telling you this as an FYI as you said your plan is to have a fully screen accurate ROTJ costume. This means you are basically going to have to replace every single piece of that Rubies costume.

    So, your choice is between getting the Rubies and modifying it and upgrade pieces as you are able to OR start from scratch buying individual components from members here and making it an ROTJ costume from the get-go. I know for a fact that no Boba costumer is ever "done" with their Boba, so either route will be ok for you, based on what you personally decide to do. Since my last post in this thread back in May, I went on a Boba upgrade kick myself and have dropped another $1,300+ into my Boba to upgrade some parts that needed it.

    Could someone PM me the information for someone I need to contact about purchasing a helmet? I've read about Fettpride and Asok(who I have read has passed recently. He seemed to be extremely well liked by everyone on here, very sorry for the loss!). But I'm unsure of where to go from there.

    Send a private message to either of them and things will proceed from there.

    This is a very helpful thread. Thank you!

    Yes, there's a bit of sticker shock, but can you really put a price on being the Fett? =)

    I generally make custom lightsaber hilts. They are cheap to build and there is an endless possibility of designs. I want to build both Fett helmets (Jango and Boba)

    Honestly you're looking at about 7 grand for a movie quality suit finished and shipped from either of them. Maybe more. I'd say less if you were in the UK
