    There are a lot of good sellers around for helmets and armor and everything.
    There's a pretty good range of prices depending on what kind of helmet it is (resin, fiberglass, etc.)
    Two that come to mind right away are Sgt. Fang, or Bobamaker. If you do searches for those, you should come up with several threads about them.

    You're in Newport News? I used to live there when I was stationed at Langley AFB! I lived in Lochhaven Apartments just off Old Oyster Point Rd.

    Re: Going for the Fett

    Here is the list I think you should go buy for your hight and build!

    Helmet: Terminal Fettler
    Armor: Fett Pride
    Gauntlets: Man of War
    Vest: Batninja
    Ammo Belt: Batninja
    Boots: Caboots
    Spikes: Russ Rep
    Jet Pack: Man of War (if he no longer makes them, then go with Boba Maker)
    Jumpsuit: Skygunbro
    Sidepouches and Spats: Sky Gun Bro
    Chest Lights: TK409
    Shin Tools: Boba Maker
    Wookie Braids: Julie
    Blaster: Hyperfirm (If you cant get one then go with Sidewinder)
    Helmet electronics: Hyperdyne Labs
    Girth Belt: Watch the cargo hold for one
    Gloves: Same

    That should cover it.... Those are very similar to what I have in my get up and I am 6' 5" and thin so it will look correct on you as well.

    Do you think where the UK is banning replica firearms that sidewinders kit will still be available? Might end up having to go the master replicas route

    Since its in pieces it should be fine. That is how you get around automatic fire arms in the US. it has to be in a million pieces.

    Re: Going for the Fett

    Howdy dude and welcome to TDH! The first thing I'd recommend you do is decide what version of Fett you want to do: Pre-Pro , ESB , or ROTJ . Also, I've got a question for ya. Which do you prefer: 'do it yourself' or 'have it all set and ready to go when it arrives?' Reason I ask is because with all of the different propmakers to choose from and all of the help you can get 'round here, you can go either way.

    If you're doing anything but esb fett I wouldn't get a bobamaker or terminal fettler helmet

    If you're doing a ROTJ Fett I'd suggest either a Sgt. Fang or Marrow Sun helmet.

    Also, I would suggest keeping an eye out in the Cargo Hold every once in awhile...not often but sometimes you can pick up some awesome parts at great prices.

    In the meantime, welcome to the addiction...you're one of us now...

    Stay safe,

    Tim.
