    My upgrades are costing me a ton of money a 3 piece leather body suit body suit is the way to go. TMP sells them you could also go for the full aromor upgrade from an ebay seller by the name of x_t_r_m the armor and up grade is all rotj style helmet, chest box, shins, armor, belt. or you can do it bit by bit.

    for a helmet i havent seen many ROTJ style lids
    JB, Elstree, a well moded DP would work well ect..

    for the best chest boxes they say Gino his stuff looks great but i hope you have a arm or a leg to spare lol
    chest armor Ghost host or Gino or phinox
    Gloves there was a thread around here some where about accurate gloves
    Shins i think the GT shins look alot like AHN style to me, and i have also seen ESB shins i think the member darth shadow sells them here.
    for ROTJ style i havent really seen any. :unsure

    ....no real difference between the shins...TK510 shins on ebay are a good buy.

    This is the perfect thread for me. All I need to finish my vader is the chest box and armor. I've seen a lot of the chest boxes on ebay. Is there anything particular to look aside from the correct lighting sequence? Thanks,
    John

    Well the portumac chest boxes are nice and cheap at 175 or you could go with a gino witch is accurate but costly.

    Size....GT boxes and their derivatives are undersized. So yes, while GINO's and other accurately sized boxes are expensive...they are correctly sized with accurate details.

    Or you could make your own box base and source out the components.....

    Here's a pic of my GINO ESB box...the ROTJ is virtually identical except that the 1/2 moon greeblies on top of the rods are turned the other way and the coin slot faces are black on the ROTJ....

    Mark,

    I have a GINO ROTJ box but I am on vacation and won't be able to take pics until July 19. Hopefully someone else will have given you pics by then. Also, if you get a GINO box with the strap that goes over the neck, I would suggest upgrading to the suspenders type straps, they work better IMO.

    I would recommend the Elstree or the JB for a lid, as Gundam already suggested.

    I have Gino armor myself and I am quite pleased with it. The GH is a little bigger but more expensive.
