Is this a costume for trooping?

Post by Darth Katz » Sun Oct 13, 2013 2:43 pm

I found this on craigslist and am interested, but would it be a costume for trooping?

Ask Mister Sage

He built a young Anikin

Since it's for the 9-year old Anakin, you wouldn't need the lightsaber (which contrary to what this guy would have you believe is NOT worth $200 by itself). :wink:

There are currently no RL standards for this costume (I presume because it's intended for a child who would not be eligible for membership).

I had my sons Anakin custom made (minus the helmet) for $50 from Alien Arms Dealer off the RL boards. That included tunic, pants, legs and arm wraps. I got the helmet off eBay for $15. It needed a bit of repair but nothing bad. The boots came from Amazon they were cheap boots that I painted. The screen acurate pouch on the belt was a double military pouch that I had to cut into two pieces. I still have the other if interested.

There are no Anakin standards. I used the references from here:

Tatooine Anakin had no lightsaber. That cost is way too expensive plus you would need too much more.

I told the seller that I am not interested and he emailed me back saying I could have everything BUT the light saber for 50 bucks. Meaning, the helmet, tunic, and belt. And he has some other items he would throw in.

Good deal? Actually, I was only going to display it. I don't know any kids who would wear it.

Thanks :thumbs:
