    Nov 21, 2008, 2:46 PM - BKBT Jango Helmets and Armor Back In Production! #1

    Hey guys,

    I'm excited to announce I will have the honor of resuming production of some of the best and most accurate fan-made Jango parts ever to hit the Jango costuming scene...BKBT's Jango helmets and armor pieces.

    I'm humbled that he has allowed me to continue making his awesome parts available to the wonderful members here, and I'm excited about prospective directions for his parts and mine in the areas of screen-accurate CC production, Hyper-Firm stunt armor, and hopefully even vacformed armor as an economical alternative for both Jangos and custom Mandos alike.

    I am both honored and humbled to be given such an amazing opportunity!:thumbup

    Thank you,
    Cruzer

    Absolutely. I'm definately interested on all counts, ESPECIALLY the bucket. Keep me in mind Cruzer! Looking forward to seeing these hit the forums.

    Thanks for continuing BKBT's line. I know from reading the forums that's a tremendous reputation to carry forward.

    Definately the molds are in great hands. Good luck Cruzer, I have always wanted a BKBT, and now that they are back in production, I will buy one for sure, as soon as I make some more money.

    Thanks guys for the encouragement and support. I'll begin to familiarize myself with the molds once they arrive next week, and should be ready to begin taking orders by the beginning/middle of December. I'll start working on the first few orders during the weekends, and then production should speed up significantly during my three week winter break at the end of December.

    I look forward to making BKBT's awesome parts available once more!

    Absolutely Marvellous Lorenzo. Will we be able to see pics? Options of variations to make, cc, vac formed etc. Mainly price would be great to see.

    I would be interested in Jango armour. Can't wait for the run of these.
    Cruzer you mainly the one great source for Jango parts, - gauntlets, gun holster, westar guns, backplate, helmet and lower armour. Only knees, ammo belt, flak vest, gloves, boots and jet pack lol.

    BKBT made Jet Packs, does this mean you got the mold for that too?

    I couldn't think of a better guy to continue on with these. Watch out for upcoming goodies. With Lorenzo's skills & contacts, he is going to take these to a new level that I'd never be able to acheive! Good luck bro!

    Thanks BKBT, and thanks guys for the continued support.

    TLobe00, believe me when I say producing these parts is like a dream come true. Shy of having the actual screen-used parts in hand, BKBT along with Bobamaker and Seeker, have all taken us one step away from complete screen accuracy.

    Mandalorian Guard, Dark-Side and Seeker are the knee masters; likewise Seeker for ammo belts, Bobamaker or Loanstar for leather vests, Reinone for boots, and Bobamaker or MLC or MOW for jet packs. I couldn't come close to the achievements these masters have made with their parts. There isn't a jet pack included in the molds I'll be receiving as far as I know.

    As for prices, I'm still working on those. I have some estimations for both gelcoat and CC versions based on BKBT's pricing, the anticipated amount of resins and time each part will take, and estimated shipping costs via USPS Priority mail. However, I'd like to make a few parts before setting them in stone.

    Mandalorian Guard, PM me if you'd like to see the prices I'm considering.

    I'm still wrapping my head around how to proceed with the sale of all these items, but I do know I don't want to bog down the Jango forum with run threads. Maybe I'll beg Sci-Fire to set me up with a linked website to their site or something where I can post pics, pricing, etc.

    Thanks again for the support and expressed interest. Let me know of any other questions.

    Thats Brilliant news Cruzer.
    I was hoping BKBT would come out of retirement soon but I'm sure you will do just as good a job.

    I'm needing all the lower armour pieces from the cod down to the boot spats so once you are really please let me know.

    Keep up the fantastic work.
