not sure where this needs to go, but figured it would be better here. I was talking with DarthTad, tonight about myself thinking of getting a set of Mando armour up next year. yhea i got into the whole Mando thing reading the Republic Commando series and was wanting a set now. does anybody state side know of anybody who is real good with making them that wont cost more than an arm and a leg? i got heads up on the helm but want someone to outfit the rest of the kit. i got the colors in mind already and got a heads up from someone on who to talk to. i want more input on who i need to discuss it with before i jump on anything.

the two that I would recomend contacting are the 501's vaders fist great group who can give you great ideas on where you can get the best prices we have a group here in victoria B.C. they are very knowledgeable and know who to trust for the best armor and the other one who I have bought parts for my fleet trooper outfit mainly the helmet is studio creation and at this time they don't appear to have any mando armor but they would be a good one to talk to to see if they have a set coming later they make the armor on site which keeps cost done for example my fleet trooper helmet was a very good price concidering the only one that would compare to the quality is Shepperton Design Studios in England they made the movie ones at a fraction of the cost. those would be the ones I would trust as I have delt with and have gotten to know each of them.

here are the links to both

Besides the 501st, there are groups like the Mando Mercs. I'm a new member, so I can't post a link yet, but you can Google "Mando Mercs" and get to their site at Firespray dot net.

From what I understand, they go for something pretty authentic (well, for fictional characters, anyway) and have armor standards for sizing and appearance that, if nothing else, are appropriate to follow.

for overall suit building, Jason Blowers (I think it's Jason) built an Uzay Headman outfit from scratch. He may be able to help with the basics of costume building

Chris as I am currently putting together a Imperial gunner outfit I have done quite a bit of hunting around for armour and stuff for trooping in
it might be worth you joining http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/ as they may be able to help you, might also be worth joining the http://thebhg.net/forum/ the bounty hunter site of the 501st.
Over here in the UK we have
http://www.bobamaker.co.uk/index.html (other makers are available)
I know that they ship all over the world and there stuff is quite good.
If you need anymore help I'm just a PM away as I'm getting quite into this.
