I am ready to pull the trigger on buying a full set of armor and gauntlets from BobaMaker but am unsure about the customs side of things. I tried Googling and found mention of items purchased online with a value of less than $2,000 but couldn't find specifics about the fee costs even when the value is less than $2,000. Can someone from the states that has purchased from BobaMaker chime in and let me know what to expect? Thank you!

I bought BM armor minus gaunts and a flight suit and vest. My order was itemized with exact costs, and I did not pay any import/ custom fees. I highly recommend BM if you decide to go that route. I was quoted a timetable and it was just about to the day. Excellent vendor.

I just read through your WIP thread and all I can say is...wow! Very impressive and I can only hope that my build will be a fraction as good.

You US guys dont know how good you ahve it when it comes to stuff like that... Me, being in Germany, I've got to multiply everything that I get from the states by 1.6 to roughly include shipping and customs...

bobafettaz - Thanks man! Which Fett are you gonna shoot for? ESB, ROTJ an SE variant?

ESB. I have already commissioned the Jumpsuit, Neck Seal, Pouches, Vest, and Blanket from Crazy4BobaFett, paid for WastedFett boots, bought gloves from BrightFett here on TDH, a mohair girth belt from Amazon, and I'm starting with a BS helmet that I bought on Walmart.com. I'll eventually upgrade the helmet but figure it's something to start with. I debated going the budget route and looked at armor and soft parts on Etsy but after posting on THD and combing through TONS of threads, I have decided to do it right the first time. I'm already in just over $1k for the above listed items and will be jumping up quite a bit with the addition of the armor. I'll eventually create a WIP thread but need to wait for stuff to start coming in the mail.

Feel your pain from the U.K. Just been stung another £20 after 2 months... for my Electronics123 purchase.

Bobamaker stuff and shipping is spot on thankfully. You’ll love it OP
