It's always a gamble matey and it's not a fixed price at the minute, if it's going to be a display figure might be worth a pop, wait till the auction finish offere him less they may take it as it looks like an unwanted project. From a costume point of view save and buy the good stuff that you no will be right :)

Don't do wot others have done before u.
Spend wisely.
Cheaper in the long run.
Photos always hide faults.

the airbrush is an battery powered nail/temp tattoo one not very good, but in the background of the pics you can see what looks like a biker scout boot. so the lid and armour MAY come from a good source, ask him

you pays your money you takes your chance

it IS possible to get a Fett under £1500.  But it takes a lot of hard work.  Even commissioning parts etc, its abt £2500 for non-bobamaker/RS props kit
Mine was just under £1500 - but took a long time

helmet - Mr Boyle does a kit for abt £80
the chest plates and cod - possible to make ur own for about £30, and resin is heavy to have strength.
Jumpsuit - if its correct and fits - worth abt £70-90 quid
Decals - £15; again if they are the right ones.
paints - again if they are teh right ones, the humbrol selection required from an accurate ESB is abt £30

If its for personal display - there are easier and cheaper ways to do it
