    Whats up with all the ESB Fetts for Sale?

    Ok, so I have been noticing for quite a while that it seems that memebers are selling their ESB fetts. That is fine I understand that. But my question is why are there not anyone selling their ROTJ fetts? Are there not that many ROTJ ones or what? Just a general observation and curiosity point.

    Last year when I started my ESB fett, I thought there were so many ROTJ for sale. Now that I am pretty much complete, there are a bunch of ESB fetts up for sale. Go figure.

    That seems to be the case especially with the GMH being available.

    I can't wait to see members with their Pre-Pro suits... hopefully we'll see some pics in threads here and at CVI.

    Unless it's people that started an ESB Fett for the 30th Anniversary of ESB, but didn't finish it in time :/

    ... or they changing to ROTJ for the 30th of that

    No doubt, I finished my ROTJ Fett last year and have been working on an ESB but I maintain that the ROTJ suit is the better looking one. The ESB suit is just so sanitized. Still super cool though.

    I have always thought (well, not always but almost) that the RotJ Fett suits were the less replicated ones, being the SE Fett the most replicated, until the Jeremy Buloch year, when ESB became a BOOM, everyone wanted to have an ESB one because JB had one, this was increased with the MR helmets, which have a closer look to the ESB helmet. Then the PP#2 props were released, like the GMH, and right now everyone wants a PP#2 costume, or at least a Sandy "helmeted" costume because of the look/flare of the PP#2 helmet being closer to the Sandy's, with the RotJ costume still being the most forgotten one (of course, after the Sandy/Promo costume/helmet).

    I agree...
    When I found the "As you Wish" site. All I saw was SE & Rotj.. BUT only a few ESBs, but this was say...15yrs ago?
    I went with ESB then this Jeremy guy got everyone all excited for ESB...lol.
