    Well, let me stop and count ! LOL.

    1. my first set
    2. upgrade to first set
    3. my second set
    4. upgrade to second set
    5. my oldest sons set
    6. my youngest sons set
    7. my ex wife's set
    8. my brother frist set
    9. my brother's second set

    It's actually more like 5 made at my hands alone. I assisted with both of my brothers sets and then teh upgrades to my 2 sets. The upgrades were basically complete rebuilds. Throw another 1/2 dozen helmets into the mix as well!

    Re: My old and new armor

    i have a few changes to make to the kit as it stands now. i'm about 85% done with the new gypsyboy helmet which i hope to finish in the next day or 2. also, i;m going to enlarge the right shoulder plate as i feel it'd too small. finally, i'm going to drop the lower ab pplate and redo the upper ab plate.

    the longterm mod is to eventually do new knee's.

    That is one BA Helm man! I SO would not want to get headbutted with that if I wasn't already wearing a helmet.

    It's great for giving Keldabe Kisses!

    The right ear is actually a modded stud finder, the left ear has a digital recorder embedded into the standard Fett earcap and the keyslots were cut out and replaced with a cheap track phone.
