    I guess Galaxy trading used to make very good Vader chest boxes and belt boxes. But they went out of business long ago. Does anyone else make these things anymore? The home made ones that Ive seen just look...well....home made.

    Thanks1

    .....the GT boxes are OK, but inaccurately sized and detailed. There are still GT clones sold on ebay....

    As far as the best accurate box?....Well, that's a bit of a loaded question. Suffice to say, that there are a few members here that make very nice accurate chest boxes.....

    Yes he does. I bought one and i am totally happy with it. Got it unfinished and it only took about 6 hours to finish it off.

    I do believe he has 2 kits available ANH and ESB/ROTJ.....

    No, the original poster asked who made the best chest boxes, as per the thread title. It was Rabid Ewok asking about ANH boxes.

    To the OP, just do a forum search here on GINO's chest boxes. I haven't seen an ESB/RotJ box that even comes close.

    It was funny looking at the Chestbox at the Museum of Science exibit. Same "stuck on" lettering. Actually the new reps look much better quality than screen used. It made me smile.

    I agree, that certainly seems to be the case.
