So you would say that $250 for the armour & helmet would be a good buy?

It would need a lot of work , but that's half the fun.

When finished it would make a great display piece...

Personally I do. $250's cheap for a full set and helmet. Just keepin mind how thin it is though.Other than that, the looks pretty much authentic when all painted up right. Can't tell the diffrence at least for myself from the pricier high end stuff.

It could be $1 and I still wouldn't touch it.

Yah , I think that's a big part of it..... Fixing up some unfinished peice and making it look like it's fresh off the set.... It's very gratifying and tons of fun although some would scoff at the work involved as not being worth it. It's all about passion and skill of course. :cool: that

if you think about it any thing cast of screen used armor is a recast. but a recast of a recast isnt great. I would say as a display go for it as a trooping suit (501st) stay away. I know I like making a piece of crap look nice though. I would say recasting aside, go with what you feel.

Ditto, it's a no brainer, never support recasting, i'd rather spend a few extra quid and keep my principles intact.
