    ^ That is awesome. I wish I lived in the states for this reason. We never do this sort of thing in the UK.

    Your armor(along with just about everything from members here) got some national airplay--hopefully I represented the Fett well. Thought you might enjoy seeing this! 501st and Rebel Legion in the 2011 McDonald's Thanksgiving Day Parade - YouTube
    THAT...IS...AWESOME! I'm still stunned to see that
    Thanks for sharing brotha! Looking great buddy!

    Awesome buddy! Glad you got it ok and that you're pleased with it all!
    It always makes me a little nervous sending armor Down Under cause I'm afraid it might not arrive but so far I've had the best luck (I guess it doesn't hurt that the boxes are so large, probably makes it a little hard for them to lose it lol) so it makes me happy to know whenever one of my customers gets their package. Thanks again so much for your business!
    Take care, have fun with the build and be sure to post up pics!

    I just received my armor from will.

    Man this is some sweet very well made armor, I really recommend his stuff.

    Also beside everything looking very nice and well made, the quality and sturdiness of the plastic is awesome, boy.. this is some hard firm armour, I bet it would really withstand a blaster hit.!!

    Great quality work man keep it up, I'll post some pics on how my fett develops.

    cheers.

    Pablo.

    Thanks a TON for that feedback and for the kind words Pablo (and for the bump...I'm not too proud to take one when I can get it ) . I'm really glad that you're pleased with the armor and I'll be looking out for your wip. Have fun with the build and thanks again!

    Hey everyone! I'll be out of town for the weekend between March 2nd and March 5th. I may or may not (don't know yet) have access to internet, so if you don't hear back from me within the next few days, that's why. Thanks again all and I'll see you soon back on the boards

    Let me see -
    Backplate
    kidney plate
    Collar
    shoulders
    knees

    I think that's about it...oh wait, I just checked in the garage and I've still got the old molds for my V1 chest set, however they're on more on the 'flat' side (and the ab is inaccurate) but could probably be formed to fit better. I also make a dentless cod V1 but it's not accurate either :/

    Re: IOA ROTJ Fett Armor kits Version 2 - Now available

    Here's a few teaser shots of my new V2 knees. I've had so many requests lately for assembled knee kits, that it's hard for me to keep up with demand while maintaining my sanity :P These new kits will save me a TON of time for folks ordering the assembled ones.

    So after looking at FP's knee kits I finally figured out how to make them in ONE piece. I'll still be sending the 1/8" inch inserts along with these for strength and stability.
    The good news - these kits will be faster and easier to assemble and will be a bit stronger than the V1's
    The bad news - these kits are going to cost more due to the complexity of the mold and the waste of plastic involved in one of these pulls, (not to mention the pain it is to get the plastic off :/)....more work on my end but less on yours...we all know time is money so it's pretty much a wash.

    I'll still be offering the V1's at their current price for more budget oriented Fetts and for those of you have more time to work on a V1 kit. For those who are in a bit more of a hurry or like the idea better of a one piece shell, these'll be for you. At the moment I'm looking at pricing these at about $60 a set. Take a look at the pics and let me know what you all think. Thanks for looking

    I was looking at getting a set of your knees anyhow soon. There is no way I will miss out on them now. Very nice.

    Brilliant work on getting them out in one piece, too.

    Thanks Bill! I have to admit that I stole the idea from Fettpride after looking at his for a good long time and trying to figure out how in the heck he did it...I think I figured it out though...although who knows, I may actually be doing mine different than him with the same results. Don't worry Chris, I ain't spilling the beans on this one bro

    Re: IOA ROTJ Fett Armor kits Version 2 - Now available

    A quick word on the 1 piece knee kits - I did some test pulls the other night of the dented version (haven't poured the molds for the nondented yet, that'll be later this weekend) and I discovered that I'm going to have to raise my prices on them a bit...almost double of the V1's

    HOWEVER, there will be some pricing options on these to make it a little more affordable. Here's what I came up with:
    -V2 outer shells only (.090 ABS) set of 2 (weakest but can be strengthened with fiberglass, etc. if you wish) - $50
    -V2 outer shells with V1 inserts - $65 (much stronger but a little more work to assemble, yet still less work than V1 knees with V1 inserts)
    -V2 outer shells with V2 inserts - $75 (strongest... easiest and fastest to assemble)

    The reason for the higher prices is because the all V2 kits with V2 inserts use twice as much plastic (it's extremely wasteful to make them this way because I can only put one mold on the table at a time) and twice as many pulls...not to mention they're a b**** to get off the mold and very time consuming to cut out of the plastic, but it can be done You could likely get away with the .090 version but they're weaker that way without the inserts or some kind of way to strengthen them.

    Pics coming soon of the dented versions! Stay tuned
