    I think that they are releasing a full fett costume, like the vader.

    The mr helmet is very nice, yes. Its decently painted. Its got a really nice interior.

    Its fiberglass, and aluminum. Mine crumbled a bit and has a few soft spots. But ive not seen any others with this problem. I have yet to hear back from MR about it.

    That's a Rubies helmet, its alright for a low budget lid. I would suggest you buy one from someone around here.

    Hey, if you really, and I do mean REALLY are going for quality, FORGET those!!! Rubies helmet can be a pain to get it into a decent form, and that suit, well, if and only IF you want to make a parody of a Fett costume, that is your suit.
    If, on the other hand, you really want to go for QUALITY Boba Fett gear, contact Bobamaker. Daz makes top notch suits, armour, the whole enchelada. And he does fine paintjob as well. The difference of what you see in BM's gear and on the links you provided is unbeleavalble. If you do not want to make your own armour and helmets, then go for Bobamaker. For the money, you get quality. With those others, you'll only find disappointment.
    By the way, welcome to the TDH!
    Cheers, Villle

    i'm going to sound amazingly snobbish here, but there's no way to say it otherwise...

    i'd have never known what those were, because, in my opinion, those are halloween costume type things, not accurate movie replicas.

    that's perfectly cool if it's what you're going for, but that's really not what this board is about.

    i guess the question is, are you looking for a suit like the others seen here, or are you looking for something fun to wear to parties and such?

    if the former, you aren't going to find a $75 in a box outfit.

    I have to agree with Brian....that "costume" is atrocious (it looks like pajamas)

    I would spend some time and read all that you can on the board
