    I'm making a fanfilm so that puts the cost up considerably! But my personal custom set including a Bobamaker Helmet (with gubbins), Bobamaker flightsuit, boots, custom blaster rifle, armour, cape, belt with pouches, gauntlets and gloves, has cost around £500. I'm waiting patiently for Bobamaker to finish his Jet Packs and then...

    Of course, his armour looks soooooo much better then my current set... I see a future career as a walking (custom Mando) Bobamaker advert!

    Well, now as I finished my Jango 1.0 I've spent about 600€ (about 800$) within the last 6 months including everything from the sandpaper, over paint till the parts.
    Even including the unfinished jet pack (which almost will be the cheapest part of the costume with about 25€ from which 15€ is only the paint).

    But compared to others, I feel lucky to got away so cheap.

    Of course upgrades are already their, waiting behind the horizon like a braided leather belt (100€) and an accurate helmet kit (200-300€).

    About 900, and that's a lot for a 15 year old! I found money in places I would have never looked before : X

    Would be less, but I made some really stupid mistakes before I knew about TDH, I.E. trying to explain to a professional carpenter how to make a jet pack, from my own crappy plans. It came out looking like a sort of lunch box with a nerf football on it, and about 20 pounds of solid oak.

    But the end result (Of my post TDH costume) was SO worth it, best time I ever had at the movies for sure, except sitting through all of ROTS with my JP on ( not the wood one, went for a kit : )) But before and after was very fun!
