    1996 Don Post?

    Can anyone confirm if this is a legit bucket?

    I am in the middle of a scratch build for my son and thought this might be a step above the Hasbro option...

    Yes that is a licensed Don Post, but it is not screen accurate. It is smaller and the range finder is obviously broken off. It might actually be a better fit than the Hasbro for a younger bounty hunter. I have been told the Hasbro is huge. I for one think the Hasbro helmet looks terrible.

    I've been trooping with a '96 Don Post for many years. I'm a skinny dude, and the old Don Post actually fits my body frame quite well. Mine has a complete repaint, Bobamaker visor, Fettpride right ear cap and ROTJ rangefinder and internal voice amp. All the rest of my armor is Fettpride.

    Impressive costume Mr. Fett. My son is 7 and I figured that I could replace the rangefinder with one from a tdh member. And redo the paint job.

    While I had painted the rest of my costume myself, I actually bought the helmet used off another TDH member in 2007, and he had put in the accurate ROTJ scratches and painted it really well and had put in the Bobamaker visor. I trooped with it for a while as it was, but then ordered a real ROTJ rangefinder from Fettpride back in 2010 and also got one of his earcaps to replace the Don Post one, which is too fat compared to how the movie one looks. Then I put a voice amp in there. It's not as loud as the Stormtrooper ones, but works at close range when talking to people at events.
