    So far I am into it for $800 US (which is roughly $1000 in Canadian funny money ). My acquistions to date include:

    1) MLC Armor (great stuff!)
    2) Halo_1's LEDs
    3) Ruffkintoy's gauntlets
    4) Misc parts such as Cod bolts, decals (from Ely), vest material (from BF), Jet Pack straps etc
    5) Air brush and compressor

    I expect to have to pay another $1200-$1500 ($1560 - $1950 CDN) by the time I am done.

    I am trying to build with not having upgrades to do - I know you can never be free of the upgrade bug

    I love this hobby!

    Lets see...Hmmmmm As of now with Jango 3.0

    Boots, Jumpsuit, holsters, gloves and vest around $300
    Jet Pack $300
    Gauntlets $200
    Westar34's made by my buddy (the most accurate)
    Armor all handmade by me in the Airframe shop at no cost
    Nickel plated 1 of 2 Jango buckets. Priceless!!!!! (it cost me more then my house payment!)

    I'd say over 1,700 and still climbing...for my Jango, the Boba is another whole story....I'm so broke.

    TOO MUCH. I spent tomuch already om materials and soft parts.
    The reason for this is that I cant seem to be satified with what I want.

    Well I just started and am working on the Bucket first. So far between the helmet and supplies, I am at the $230 mark and I haven't purchased my paints yet! LOL

    Re: *Official*how much has your costume cost you besides tim

    Mine cost around 1500 and that is with the crapy armor that I will later have to upgrade. Not to mention the movie prop space suit back pack from armageddon to make my custom back pack. But at least I know i won't get lost in a convention with all the people having siezers behind me.

    jeez......i think i've spent more for adhesives,tools, clay,plaster, and miscellaneous junk than anything...although my attempts to make the helmet have cost me any shred of sanity i had left, so now spending money dosen't even bother me.....i have achieved a state of righteous financial indifference....just ask Wal-Mart and Lowe's....they'll agree....

    It kills me that my "TK" (and TB and TD) friends in the 501st Legion that I troop events with THINK that I probably have "about $500" in my suit, since you can get TK armor for $450+. Little do they know (or would believe) that my costume is upwards of $2600 now, and I don't even have a jet pack yet!!! My helmet (MSH1) alone almost cost me as much as some of their entire COSTUMES did!

    And THEY get snippy when we're at events and people bang on THEIR armor!
    Scratch that last total. Just recently bought a fiberglass jet pack and a Hyperdyne unit. Total is now $3000+

    OK, I've sold and upgraded so many parts since I started, do you subtract what you make on the upgrades from the overall total? So confusing...anyway...although I have no desire to acurately total everything up, A guess would be around $1200 - $1500.

    Hi all,
    I'm just starting mine, trying to scratch build as much as I can myself (ESB Fett) but had to buy leather belt & pouches. Made my flight suit, cod, girth belt, shin tools and I should have enough PVC sheet left to make my armor, so far I think I've spent about £200.
