TK510 was mentioned for accurate shin pieces. Is that for all three or a specific movie?

CHEST ARMOR - JB/GH

SUIT -TMP/XTRM

CHESTBOX - GINO

COD - TMP/XTRM

Just a small contribution. This is pretty much my vendor choice for all three movie versions of course they all differ from film to film.

Nice list. So... do all these makers make items for all three movies or just 1 of them?

I know JB will weather and brush his armor to look like ANH.
ESB and ROTJ are routine.

TMP - I believe does both ESB and ROTJ, unsure on ANH. Perhaps we can PM him.

Gino - Well stopped making them, but occasionally still does the odd one. One of my contacts said Gino is still selling kits at $475 in resin etc.. Not painted or made up obviously. I believe Gino does all 3 varients.

COD - Can be used again for all 3 even though the movie versions vary TMP/XTRM (John) hasnt made an alteration since his first batch I believe.

Worth mentioning that a 3 piece suit is now available from TMP.

These are all great products.

Cool. I'll put them on the list if no one has any problems with these sellers - don't wanna recommend someone if there are issues with their products and/or deliveries.

And it has to be readily available stuff... not hard to get... just thought I'd point that out - it may be less accurate, but it has to be available now.

Well, I think TMP is fine. Never had a problem and a regular on the RPF and Ebay as you know. He has good feedback.

JB - Err well, not all would agree, and who could blame them. He has Always been good to me. I've mainly dealt with Mark on his behalf though and since he has been helping JB process orders JB reputation is getting much better.

GINO - It's an idea for someone to perhaps email him to confirm.

Well... waiting with adding JB & GINO...

Who was it that made cheap & accurate ANH gloves, can't remember... was it SithPlanet?

Also... the individual pieces has to be "accurate" to the particular movie they are listed with... so, if something more accurate than what the currently listed seller is offering comes along, they will be replaced.

Thanks. Close, but still so far away...

Would be nice to have a price on all these parts.

"mschipley" from eBay is where I got my capes and robes (I ordered sets for my display, and myself). The price is very reasonable, and they came out EXACT to the measurements I sent her. She has a set of Vader armour that she uses to make the capes over. The last time I talked to her she was taking a break from the Vader capes. She said working with all black material constantly is murder on the eyes. That was months ago though. Her e-mail addy is; mschipley@msn.com
