Just like the other thread where everyone list what their Vaders parts are made of or who they're from, I'd like to see what people think they would get if they have the ability to get ANYTHING they want for their suit, if they were to put together one right now.

Lets keep it real and use items currently available/on sale, and not something that's out of production or need to be dug out from the Lucasfilm archives, or is in some collectors' deepest vaults...

If money wasnt an object......i'd call George and get him to open a display icase or two.

Like I said, keep it real...even if you can afford it I doubt Georgie would sell you something in his archive or one of his exhibition pieces... :p

All I would like are shins cast from original ANH shins, better cape (newer, more accurate), and a little bit more screen-accurate helmet...apart from that I've gotten the best I could find...and the total cost was a lot more than I expected :eek But there are always going to be ways of improving it...

Hmmm...

ROTJ Vader

JB Helmet
Gino Chestbox
Durasteel belt
Custom Leather suit
Custom cape and robe
Dark Shadow Cod
tk510 gloves and shins
GH Chest Armor
Custom Boots
MR LE Saber (coming soon.)

That is almost exactly what my current vader IS. :D

I REALLY need new boots. My current ones are cheap costume grade, and my feet were killing me after trooping last night. Better Chest armor would be nice, but I am actually quite pleased wiuth my Phoenix armor.
For the saber, MR is coming out with the ROTJ sabers this year, But I'll get the CE line for the costume.

If money is no object my suit would be all screen used or tour items. They exist but do not go up for sale to someone as poor as me...lol.

Just curious, nobody ever wanted a reveal helmet for their ROTJ Vader?
[/b]
For me a reveal is more of a display piece than something I'd wear or troop in.

I am not sure I'd even want something from the archives... at least not something that I'd have be part of my ultimate Vader. I've seen higher quality replicas made by talented fans that put the screen used stuff to shame.

I'm still trying to figure out what is considered the BEST when it comes to all things Vader. This thread will definitely help me get a sense of that.

The artificial "Limited Edition" nature of some of the best replica parts also confounds the problem.

I know the helmet I wish I had (the GH) is highly valued and highly sought after in the aftermarket.
