    Oct 19, 2011, 10:36 PM - I traded my complete Jango Fett for this: #1

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
