    I traded my complete Jango Fett for this:

    I started Jango back in 2007. Finished it a couple years ago, haven't been wearing it much. I wanted something new, something that's rare and not seen a lot at conventions. I made a straight across trade with the maker of these suits in the UK. I did keep the MR's. Of course it didn't look like this when I got it. I changed all the pleather parts for leather. I made the belt, vest, leg straps, undershirt, and made several tweaks for accuracy. Basically remade the whole suit/ mounting system with the exception of the green parts and the hairy diaper, which got weathered. Axe is made of Styrene and a wood handle. As far as I've seen, there are only about 5 of these suits trooping in the 501st. I think the guy in the UK got the better deal.
    I think this was the last time I wore it.


    All the pleather in it's glory. This is how it arrived.



    And now, 3 months later:

    I guess I expected the responses considering this a Fett forum. But honestly, I wore it for a few years, got my use out of it, tried to sell it as a complete suit, got no bites, so I traded it. It's perfect for CVI.

    Yeah, I thought it would be hot. Much room in the head? I hate the close masks, but would love a pig. Oink Oink!!!

    One other problem, I don't have big feet like you 8D

    I made a manifold type thing out of plastic with a blower on each side. It sits behind the mouth and draws in fresh air instead of circulating the used stuff. I haven't installed it yet. I think the main thing is the body isn't covered in Latex. I don't think I'll overheat, just sweat like crazy.

    I laughed, good point. I'll have it at WonderCon in March. It's in Anaheim this year. I'll be with Chewie (Ben).

    Very cool! I love the GG. Would never want to wear one because they look unbelievably hot, but that is a really nice suit. Hate to see the Jango go, but it looks like you traded one very cool suit for another!

    Re: I traded my complete Jango Fett for this:

    Thanks. I might also look into a cooling vest. The main body is all fabric and leather so I should be alright. I'm used to trooping in Vader, and I wear dark blue, ballistic vest, and knee high black leather boots in 100+ degree heat on a motorcycle all day, so I do alright.

    I think you made a good choice to go with Piggy. Way more unique, and such a cool looking costume.

    Re: I traded my complete Jango Fett for this:

    Dude... that is soooooo.... cool!

    I think you made the right decision.

    The world probably needs more GG and Les J.... but that is just my opinion.

    Re: I traded my complete Jango Fett for this:

    The GG is sweet!
    Would love to see more of these around... although not enough to do one myself

    And in the end.. If you are happy - then it is a great trade.

    "Impressive....Most Impressive." I think you definitely got the better deal on that. I've heard of Gammorean Guards costing in the $3,000-$4,000 for a perfectly accurate or close to original cast. I'm sure there are lots of people that would pay you good money for that costume.
