Features:

- THE most accurate boot rocket replicas to date, bar none
- Much more durable and lightweight than resin because they are direct 3d printed "master copies"
- Transparent and hollow parts for adding lighting
- Parts (over 40 total) slot together for ease of assembly
- Mounting plates for boots included, with spaces for hidden magnets (choose between screen accurate or slotted for twist-lock action)

Kits will need some cleanup, assembly and paint as per usual.

Cost per kit is $345 shipped for a complete set.(I can offer the kit without transparent parts for $295)

Please note that each kit takes over a week to manufacture, so I need at least two or three to get them made, prepped and sent.

Please send me a PM if you want a set and thanks for looking!

Re: Star Lord BOOT ROCKETS kit

I am in. Let me know when you need deposit. I been waiting for someone to do this.

Will you have option of 100% done kit/lights also or is that to much to ask?

Sending you a PM. These are ready to go into production on a per-order basis, so I'm accepting payment as folks want them. (Sending you a PM.)

I've kinda got a limit in my head that I probably don't want to do more than six kits total, but we'll see. I don't have a time limit really (I know Xmas time is tight all around), it mainly depends on how much time I have to crank them out.

Doing finished builds isn't really possible for me at the moment. I'd like to do it, but I just don't have the time.Even my own builds are lagging behind because I'm so focused on prototyping new stuff all the time! (Also, with winter here, it's difficult to get things painted in a timely manner since can't do it outside. I have to go through all sorts of precautions to seal off my workshop room from the rest of the apartment and even then I can't keep all the paint fumes out... which is not appreciated by the missus or the cats!)

Also... TWELVE PRECENT? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. (Authentic laugh....)

OK maybe a tall order but what are the chances of have a lighted thigh rocket controller acting as the on and off switch and hardwired from inside the pants directly to a set of these hollowed rocket boosters for lights and sound as seen in the movie :) Would love to buy a DIY kit. Thanks.

Re: Star Lord BOOT ROCKETS kit

That's actually what I was thinking of doing myself! Not really a tall order at all.

The most basic idea would be to run a wire down each pant leg and out through the boot. A standard RCA plug (or 3.5 tele) could be put in each rocket hub to connect the power. The closing circuit breaker could be in the knee remote. The hub has a fair amount of room in it, so adding a connector of some sort shouldn't be a problem.

LINK to eBay item that may be used to do the job. USB MP3 Greeting card type recorder with speaker. FYI we are using a similar one but with 5 buttons for our BTTF2 Marty McFly Jacket. Would love to brainstorm more and turn this to a reality. This will seriously make your Star lord costume unique!!

I'm actually doing those as well, just haven't make up a set to show yet. They will come ready for mounting (no need to drill) and also have space for magnets or a metal plate on the back.

***bump***

I decided to include a set of boot mounting plates with the kit without additional cost. Plates will (as mentioned before) have pre-made holes for the rivets and space int he back to place magnets or a steel plate- whichever seems to work better.

One set gone, five (5) sets left before my tentative cutoff of six total.

For those on a budget, I can supply the kit without the transparent parts, taking off about $50.

Re: Star Lord BOOT ROCKETS kit THREE LEFT, revised.

I have revised the kit listing a little, as well as the total number.

You can now choose between screen-accurate (smooth) boot mounting plates or ones that have a slot-lock system. Both versions have the same overall shape and hidden spaces for magnets, but the slot-locks will give you a little extra strength in keeping them mounted. (They have been done in such a way that you slide them on at an angle from back-to-forward and the "hook" is on the back of the rocket.)

I have also decided to only offer FOUR kits like this. The large amount of parts means that they take a while to produce and I need to free up some printing time for other stuff. One kit is spoken for, so THREE remain. I have also decided to offer the kit for a little less, without the transparent parts.
