Hi everyone.
Not sure if this is the right category to place this so please tell me if I should move the post.
So, I've been looking for ESB parts for a while. I'm really cheap since I'm only a student yet, and I also HAVE to spend money on SH Figuarts Star Wars stuff haha. I allredy got the helm which I made out of cardboard and the gauntlets which are Bobamaker.
I want to build a 501st costume before the last episode of the Saga comes out :p
I still want to have something nice to go TLJ premier haha, maybe just the main parts of the armor, w/o girth belt, shoes, cape, jetpack, blasters.
I just discovered a seller who's from my country (Chile) on ebay, which is very nice since shipping will be cheap and everything is cheaper. Everything is cheaper here than in US or Europe so all this costume build feels even more expensive here haha.
So anyways, here's the link to his store: http://www.ebay.com/sch/ovando/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=
In particular, I'm really interested in: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-B...664239?hash=item1ec6765b2f:g:NC4AAOSw~y9ZCL4o what do you think about this product's quality? price-quality wise? is it accuarate enough for you guys? detail pics from the kit: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-B...668543?hash=item1ec6766bff:g:a4UAAOSwCGVX~4Bu and http://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-B...668671?hash=item1ec6766c7f:g:~wUAAOSw-CpX~PAF
I'm also looking at this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-B...672716?hash=item1ec6767c4c:g:jUUAAOSwnHZYeNsv I know is rough AF but I have no problem in working it out to get it much better.
Thanks a lot for the advice!!!

Vicente.

I know of two people here who have gotten screwed over by him. Check this thread -

I would be very leery of buying that armor, it looks to me in the pics like it's made from HIPS (styrene), which is horrible for armor. It'll start cracking on you almost immediately.
As for accuracy, I can't speak for the soft parts, but the armor has lots of inaccuracies (as well as the gauntlets), especially the backplate and knees....the knees are really weird looking if you ask me....and they're made in three parts which will be more work and more difficult to assemble.
I'm my opinion, if you're going for 501st I would not buy that armor. I see guys all the time who have tried to go the cheap route and wound up replacing just about everything they originally bought.
When it comes to eBay, Manofwar is the only safe person I know of to order from. I've heard countless stories of people getting taken on eBay, be careful.

Pretty sure that is another name for Cucblack - his name is Christian. He has screwed a ton of people on the Biker Scout forum- as in never received their stuff or took years to get. My personal experience is that the quality of the soft parts was good but all completely wrong size wise which he blamed me for ( I had a professional tailor measure me using his sheet just to avoid that issue ). He also lied about the time frame of shipping etc. He is the only vendor to ever have had an entire " bad vendor " post made about him on the Scout boards. He has had several names on eBay over the years.
